    I'm not saying investigate the spill, but there's no reason to kill a few undred thousand jobs while you're at it.

    Let's face it, the damage has been done. Another blowout in the Garden banks isn't going to make things worse.

    Did you hear Obama last night say that he enacted the moratorium for our own good? He's going to take our jobs away for our own good. That's just brilliant.

    Was the shipping industry shut down after the Valedeze spill? Wasn't, was it?
    I'd probably care more what the people of Louisiana wanted in this situation if their oil well wasn't on the verge of ruining our coast in florida. As it is, this is a disaster that has been waiitng to happen for decades. And now that the inevitable has occurred, you want to continue to do what brought us here? Real smart, Apdst.

    So, it makes since to just go ahead and kill the rest of the economy on the Gulf Coast? I would love to hear that logic. Now, there's not even a fall back for the fisherman to turn to to make a living.



    Um, oil shipping and shipping are not the same thing. A container ship holding rubber duckies that sinks is not going to cause a massive environmental castrostophy. Furthermore, Exxon failed to provide many of the basic things it said it was going to do. Like turn on radar. And have emergency response ships.
    Cruise ships carry 6,000+bbls. of fuel oil. That wouldn't be a catastrohpe if one sank?

    Now that there's going to be less production in the GOM, there's going to be more super tankers on the ocean. That's pure genius!!

    I understand BP is hiring cleanup contractors.

    Question, Apdst. Is BP paying you on a per post basis to shill for them?

    Perhaps your prez should get his head out of his and do a better job of containing the spill? Maybe!

    How is the Florida tourist industry going to fair, if no one can afford gas to get there, either because gas is $8 per gallon, or no one has a job? There's ther real genius of closing drilling. Take out all the folks from Mississippi, Alabaama, Louisiana and Texas who in some way, or another, depend on the oilfield to make their living from all the people that go spend money in Florida nd what does that add up to? Even more genius of closing drilling.

    Welll, since you were looking for suggestions on where former oil rig workers and fishermen could work...

    No offense, but this problem is bigger than the oil rig workers. It has already started to decimate the tourism industry of my state, which employs about 10 times as many people as the oil industry does in your state. So, forgive me for not giving a ****.

    A few hundred thousand jobs? Source?
