    Re: Louisiana wants offshore drilling ban lifted

    When a plane crashes you don't shut down all the airlines while you investigate the cause. We don't shut down our school system when a bus is in an accident.
    Obama is pandering to the far left and is going to totally ruin our economy. What he should be doing is tightening regulations. He should be insisting that all rigs have at least two relief wells instead of none. This would create tens of thousands of jobs instead of destroying jobs. This ban, if it lasts very long will cause these oil companies to pick up and leave, never to return. The need for oil is not going away anytime soon. I prefer we use our own and keep the money here and out of the hands of our enemies. Drill baby drill. Someones going to anyway. Why not us?
    He is wasting this crisis. He should be using it to create jobs.

    Please, promote the idea that Obama ****ed over th southern states for political reasons. Make it such a popular idea, that dumbassed Liberals actually go on television saying the same thing. I would love that!

    Don't think that no one is going to notice Obama bailing out the piss poor unions while he allows the gulf coast to founder.

    Why haven't the newsreaders on TV who make more than CEOs picked up on this? Is it that the people in NY and Calif could care less about LA. When the crap hits Florida beaches where New Yorkers vacation, then we will hear howls.

    The Liberal press doesn't want to give yall's secret away. That's why.

    I heard Glenn Beck use a similar analogy with a house to support off shore oil drilling "you don't stop building houses just because one catches on fire". He is wrong on this one because a house fire can be put out before if burns down the city,neighborhood and block, the oil leak in the gulf is still going on.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. 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"

    This is one of those times where I'm not quite sure if a poster is being sarcastic or not. Since I don't know you I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and assume this is a sarcastic response and worthy of a GUFFAW !!!

    Last I checked it doesn't cost anything to grow trees(maybe money to pay someone to plant them),forest fires also occur naturally and depending on the part of the country you are in forest fires help trees. Millions of gallons of oil spewing into the gulf does not help the ocean life, oil on beaches does not help with tourism and will cost a **** load of money to have it all cleaned up.

    How long will it take those towns and cities to recover from the loss of revenue from the lack of tourist,fishing and other things?
    How long will it take to plug the oil leak?
    How much will it cost to clean up that oil?
    How will this affect seafood prices?
    How much is the consumer going to get screwed up the pump after this mess is over?

    Dunno, Dunno, Dunno! I know that a 6 month drilling moratorium will put a ****load of people out of work.

    The Gulf Coast's economy has already taken a hit. How do you justify harming it eveb more? Unemploying tens of thousands of people sure as hell isn't going to cap the well, or clean up the spill any quicker.

    You are correct .....A offshore drilling rig's operational cost is in or around 250,000 dollars a week if not more depending on the size, I hope those who support the moritorium on offshore drilling realize that these rigs will not sit around and wait for the ban to be lifted. There is a demand for these platforms around the world, and believe they will pull up stakes and leave to where the money is.
