    Gov't: 23K workers affected by Gulf oil drill ban - Yahoo! News
    If there is possibilty of a massive oil spill that is going to take months to fix and decades to clean up then screw those 23k jobs. Petition the govenment for on shore and near shore oil drilling instead of deep off shore oil drilling.

He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    It's easy to say that, when you're not one of those 23 thousand out of work. What is it that you do for a living??

    What about the fishermen and others whose lively hood was ruined because of the massive oil leak,what about their jobs?

    They're all back to work, in case you haven't heard!

    That being said, how is a drilling ban going to get them back to work any faster??

    A drilling ban on deep off shore oil drilling will prevent the fishermen and others from being out of work again due to some massive oil leak that takes months to plug and possibly decades to clean.

    Common sense would dictate that there has been alotta learning take place as to how to plug a deepwater well. You think the very first oil well was drilled with a blowout preventer? No, it wasn't. Years of R&D took place in just a few months this summer.

    As to the decades to clean; things aren't as disasterous as the Libbos were hoping for.

    Really? Because I would think the Libbo's would prefer for this disaster never to have happened in the first place, especially since Obama had announced he would allow more off shore drilling before the oil spill occured. But now that it has, what makes you think it won't take at least ten years for the Gulf to recover, especially since that is how long it took for the oil spill in Mexico to recover?

    Prefer for it to never happen? yeah, maybe. Gonna get as much mileage out of it now that it has happened? Most definitely!!!

    But now that it has, what makes you think it won't take at least ten years for the Gulf to recover
    Because it's already recovering, maybe? It's far from the disaster that the Libbos made it out to be.

    Tell you what. If a deep off shore oil leak happens along the coast of some other country and it only takes a day or two maybe even I week I will support deep offshore oil drilling.

    As to the decades to clean; things aren't as disasterous as the Libbos were hoping for.
    Has all the oil been cleaned up? No?

    Maybe? What do you mean by "it's already recovering, maybe"? You don't sound so sure.
