    So. How much is too much???? And how do we know until it is too late?
    Did we have 200 billion gallons spil into the GOM? We didn't. Did we? When we do, you be sure and shoot me an email and let me know.

    It was private sector engineers that said not to spray water on the fire, because it would cause the rig to sink and cause a spill.

    What did the government do? They sprayed water on the fire, causing the rig to sink and cause a spill.

    This isn't about engineers and government mistakes, this is about corporation ethics, try again...

    Whoever said anything about no government regulation? I believe I speak for most on the right, when I say that we oppose too much government regulation.

    You insist that the government protect us from the evil corporations, but you still can't tell us whose going to protect us from the government, when it's ethics go down the crapper.

    Here is a perfect example.

    Video: EPA not scoring regulatory impact on jobs Hot Air

    The EPA doesn't have the first damn clue what effect their regulations have one jobs and what's worse is, they don't even give a ****.

    When does the corruption end??
    If it's The Gong Show, can't they just bang the gong and get rid of BP's act?

    The oil industry, along with the pharmaceutical industry and a few others, ARE government now.
