    Not yet. It will take some time for the moratorium to take effect. There are nearly 10,000 truck drivers in south Louisiana that are going to affected by this, alone. That's not to mention the tool companies, pipe yards, service companies.

    It's not a lie, it's the truth and rest assured, that I'll keep you updated as to all the job losses.

    Well, we're pretty sure we know what to do, now.

    If other countries are willing to take the risk, that's on them, but as a country, for us to continue to take what we now know is an inordinate risk would be truly stupid. The fact that you and others continue to wish this on us is ridiculous.
    Nice spin!!!!

    I already gave you the statistics, from the state of Louisiana website, of the number of oil-related jobs. This happened the last time you threw that absurd number out there, but of course, I have no doubt that you've forgotten it already.

    No. We know WHAT NOT TO DO, which is not the same as knowing WHAT TO DO.

    Especially since Obama killed even more jobs, since the spill started. Yer boy did a great job!

    Who was talking about Louisiana? I'm talking about the jobs in Texas and Mississippi that are going to be flushed down the toilet, too. You do understand the idea of trickle down economics? Right? If all the oilfield hands lose their jobs, then the places where they spend their money are going to face lost revenue. Do you get that?
