I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
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.

Get a grip on your girdle, myrtle. See what happens when you get your view of the world from biased sources?

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?
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.

Moderator's Warning: Stay on topic everyone. Oil has nothing to do with this story.
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?
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.
