    Exactly. It's time the government step it up and make some needed changes. They want to drill? Well make 'em pay the consequences of any damages to the environment by new laws and much stiffer financial penalties. This is about as good a time as any as I am sure most Americans would be behind this.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Ok, lets think about this for a little bit.

    You, me, all of us.....we all need oil. We can't function without it. Unless you plan on walking to work, you gotta have it. If you punish, or threaten to punish oil companies drilling in the Gulf with huge financial penalties if something goes amiss you will force these companies to build up a large slush fund to use for such a situation. Who do you think will pay for the creation of this slush fund? You and me. They'll just pass it on to us as more expensive oil and gas. We pay more at the pump. Is that what you want? If it is, then you're going about it the right way.

    So you feel like you're punishing them when you're really just punishing yourself. You might want to be careful with what you wish for.

    Yes, in today's age, we need oil. So let's change that.

    If you punish, or threaten to punish oil companies drilling in the Gulf with huge financial penalties if something goes amiss you will force these companies to build up a large slush fund to use for such a situation. Who do you think will pay for the creation of this slush fund? You and me. They'll just pass it on to us as more expensive oil and gas. We pay more at the pump. Is that what you want? If it is, then you're going about it the right way.
    Yes, I hope the price keeps on rising. Why? Because it's only then that people really put the focus on alternative energy. That is what I want.

    So you feel like you're punishing them when you're really just punishing yourself. You might want to be careful with what you wish for.
    In the last few years, I have cut back a lot of my oil dependance. I drive a lot less, and bike/walk whenever I can. I use my own shopping bags. I buy mostly organic/local foods. I do what I can, and have not felt deprived in any way. Sure, I still need oil, but if I had a choice, I would pick anything but.

    BTW, do you realize the pittace of oil that off-shore drilling harvests compared to what Americans consume? It will never anount to more that just a drop in the bucket. Do you think all of the destruction this spill has causes is worth 0.02%?

    Given the nature and the scope of the problem, who here is competent to judge if BP is doing a good job or not?

    Let alone the fact that BP has blacked out the media.
