    Yes, you are responding to me by going off topic and ranting about things that have nothing to do with this thread by ranting about the government's response to the spill, not what may have been contributing factors to the spill itself.

    I will decline further response unless you can actually address what I wrote and not evade it and find a way to attack the government in an unrelated manner.

    It sure is. And in that case, eff the gulf coast. I want a refund check for all that money that went into the 1994 contigency plan, and all the money spent on the coast guard to prep them for oil mitigation and cleanup.


    We can just tell the gulf states, sorry, bp's doing what they can.

    Fine, let's start with this.

    Care to tell us what the centralizers had to do with it?

    This is a centralizer. Since, I doubt you know.

    I say we let the leak go until the entire Gulf is dispaced by the oil. Then we just throw a hose in and pump the oil to the refineries. :

    You don't think they put 3 cement plugs in the well?

    Your family might know what is going on but, you sure don't. If you actually do, you have a major problem expressing yourself with your posts. I used your own diagram to prove you were wrong and I'm not going to engage you in any side issue until I see you write "UNCLE".

    Care to tell us what the centralizers had to do with it?
    No. You've already proven that, when it's obvious you don't know what you're talking about and are proven wrong, you are not able to admit it. Why should I educate you even more?

    What's next? You gonna tell us how the centralizers, in the cement plugs, lead to the well blowing out?
