    A few thoughts. First, the term is moratorium.

    Second, do you consider drilling additional deepwater wells, in light of what happened with deepwater horizon, to be a wise decision?

    See, the problem with drilling new deepwater wells is that we're really not quite sure HOW TO TURN THEM OFF if something goes wrong. And, spilling hundreds of millions of gallons of oil along our shoreline really isn't good for business, either.

    Lastly, Louisiana has been tracking jobs lost due to the moratorium. The job losses have been far less than 100k. In fact, they've been less than 500. Not not 5,000, or 50,000, but 500.

    Yawn.
    Harry, that's rude.
    The arial view of this mess was awful. This is what happens when people think the government is going to take care of them. This was just people trying to get an APPLICATION for public housing. I heard some of them will wait up to 10 yrs on a list. Maybe eventually minorities will move to the right side.
    Can you imagine the coverage this would be getting if this happened under Bush's watch?
    Obama's poll numbers are going to drop even more now. The scary part is, I don't think he cares one little bit about his poll # or what American citizans are going through under his watch. Has he even commented on this yet?

    Yes I think we need to drill wherever we find oil. ANWR would be great start. We are in such deep water because crazy liberals drove them out there. However if we don't drill someone else will, and we need the jobs and the oil. I swear Obama hates people working in the private sector so much he's probably the one who sicked that official on the little girl with a lemonade stand.
    The job losses are far from over. Is the Moratorium lifted yet?
    Just heard that TX is sueing over the moratorium. Good for them. I hope more states follow.

    that's what they were lining up for i thought they enjoyed the process and would then go back to their mansions and ask jeeves to bring them a lemonade?
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are

    I absolutey have. I said it was awful didn't I? I said Harry was rude didn't I? I blamed Obama for their predicament didn't I?
    Besides I don't think we were looking at 30000 homeless people, but people looking for more affordable housing. With the unemployment the way it is we'll be seeing thousands more in the same situation and maybe by then the 30000 will all be homeless. Ain't socialism great?

    Drill, baby, drill, and damn the consequences. Brilliant. There's a lot of in-depth thinking in your post.

    These are people who WOULD BE HOMELESS if they weren't being assisted by Section 8, because they can't afford to pay for any of the housing that is currently out there in the market. Some of them probably are homeless, living in short-term hotels, living out of cars, etc.

    I don't know what you know about Section 8 (clearly, next to nothing) but many recipients are senior citizens.

    Gosh. I'm sure happy we have you here to provide us with your deep philosophical insights.
