He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    It's a process that has always taken years and has not changed under the current administration. It's a very large, complex, and risky engineering task. A lot of geological information has to be carefully gathered. Deepwater drilling especially has never been a fast process to start.

    You mean Permit, don't you? One permit has been issued that is all.

We will see what happens after Walker has been in office one year. Stay tuned!!

    The process of issuing permits also takes a long time and always has, but we're derailing pretty good here. Can we at least drop the talking point that the judge's ruling has been "ignored?"

    So it is then, one permit, not permit(s). And given the "complexity" as you put it... consumers shouldn't be holding our breath for cost relief. Obama's a smart guy - he knew what this would do, and I'm sure his advisors identified once a moritorium was issued, how long both politically and operationally it would take to get things up an running again. That means he presumably knew we'd be needing foreign oil for quite a while - probably through a 2nd term if he's re-elected. So given he knew that, what's the motivation here to increase energy costs - not just in crude/gasoline production but with everything?

    LOL! What's the matter? You are being exposed as foolish for blindly throwing out a talking point, now you want to all of the sudden clear your throat and stick to the topic....I didn't jump on that part until you made the foolish statement you did.

    You say that the process takes time, well use your google and take a look through how many extra regulatory agencies now control issuing those permits, as opposed to say 3 years ago...It'll boggle your mind. The one issued is a token to give inane pap to drones.

    But if you don't like oil, hell take HC, Dear Leader is ignoring the Florida Judge that issued his ruling on HC.

    I think that kind of legislation is needed. Bellwood, Illinois is a little suburb of Chicago.

    $472,255 to run a town of 20,000

    Village officials can't explain why Roy McCampbell was paid so much to run Bellwood. For running a blue-collar western suburb, taxpayers paid Roy McCampbell $472,255 last year — the highest total compensation of any suburban municipal executive — and village officials now say they're not sure why. McCampbell, known as one of the first suburban officials to push red-light cameras, said he did the work of 10 people for Bellwood — comptroller, administrator, public safety CEO, finance director, budget director, human resources director, mayoral assistant, corporation counsel, property commission director and development corporation officer — and was paid like it.
    A suburban official who claimed 10 job titles at once has seen his retirement checks whittled by pension officials — though the 56-year-old is still getting about $230,000 a year. The Tribune revealed in June that Bellwood had paid its comptroller, Roy McCampbell, $472,255 in 2009, helping him earn a quarter-of-a-million-dollar pension in retirement. The Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund reviewed the pension and last fall knocked about $23,000 from it, the Tribune learned this week.
    Bellwood: Population just over 20,000 people, of which 7% are below the poverty line; per capita income just over $19,000. Yeppers, every state should have legislation like that. State Investigates Quarter Million Dollar Pension in Bellwood - Chicagoist
