Good to see that somebody is standing up to Barack Obama and his idiocracy requests. There is little danger in Oil Drilling unless the company doing the drilling has poor conditions and unsafe procedures, such as the one that failed.
I have been working BP Thunder Horse and Atlantis since 2001. I say this above all, BP tests, tests, and re-tests until you are begging them to accept the valve. They insist on a comprehensve safey set of rules that are a pain in the ass but break a safety rule and you are shown the door. Prior to BP I have worked on several contracts for Exxon Shell, Kerr McGee, Chevron etc. and BP was the first to come out and read the riot act to everyone on their safety DEMANDS. As far as the ruling, keep this and any body of thought out of issue they know nothing about. Second, why six months you jerk prez? Why not 3 months and two days? Why not 4 months and one week? Is it because your useless brain does not care about working Americans while you continue to extend unemployment benefits to bums too lazy to seek work? Why should they look for work when they can count on you for free cash forever? This was one "ACCIDENT"......ONE! I feel the response from the company and the Coast Guard should have been many times quicker but I don't know all the logistics so unlike may treehuggers I'll reserve jugement until all the facts are in. Thank you judge, now lets all get back to work and vote against this Muslim traitor's folllowers this coming November! Welcome to TeaParty.org
Think if Trump get elected how much resistance he will face with in all phases of our country from people to military to politicians. He must not win.
What I find hilarious is that the libs cry, "INSPECT INSPECT INSPECT!!" When we say, well we did reinspect them all and they're all in compliance and found to be safe, then they yell, "But that doesn't insure they're safe, that doesn't remove the human error or wrecklessness."
No, and no amount of praying will remove the liberal mindset from the liberal.
Sure thing Orion, from your post:
Unless you have some evidence of a buy off of the judge, then your post is nothing but meaningless speculation. Post your evidence, or admit you have none.
You say a judge is bought off and then try to crawfish out when evidence is demanded. Typical lib.Oh please, open your damn eyes. That is how political process works these days.

First of all, not all drilling was covered under the moratorium.. it was the deepwater rigs, which were all reinspected and passed all safetly measures... what is the problem with allowing a safe, working rig to drill?There is good reason. A full damage assessment of the BP spill would indicate what the true cost and risk are of off shore drilling and if it's worth it. If the coastline is going to be paying for the spill for the next 50+ years and local economy is going to be in the gutter, then I think that would justify a moratorium; or, in the least, a temporary ban until better disaster measures can be put into place.
Umm, the Department of the Interior does the inspections... they are part of the Executive Branch of government..I don't care if those rigs pass inspection. All that means is that the technology is up to spec. It doesn't account for human error or recklessness. Who does the inspections? How secure are the inspections? For all we know people are being paid off.
The Executive Branch of the United States government is now incapable of conducting a reliable inspection?The last word we should be trusting is the word of oil companies. I want to see independent inspections and reviews from NGOs.
edit: It looks like it also involves administrative law.
Every day, judges around the country hand down decisions that cost or save corporations billions of dollars. Unless you think every one of those judges is on the take, I don't see why we should assume there is any undue influence here. I very much doubt that this is anything close to the biggest case that Feldman has heard in his 27 years on the bench.
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
