Oil Clean Up - Oil cleanup workers report illness - Los Angeles Times
On a related note, given that you're from the Gulf Coast I assume you know the impact that the oil spill had on the fishing industry and livelihoods of people who rely on the marine environment in that region to survive? Liberals aren't saying we should shut down and get rid of the oil and gas industry. Liberals ARE saying those activities carry risks and private entities need to be held accountable when they are lax in preventing something like this from happening.
As for air quality, just ask people from Los Angeles or Beijing how much they love breathing smog.

- Colonel Paul YinglingNobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.
Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.
All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
