    I was playing on your sarcasm. Aren't you an Obama supporting, job creating for the betterment of the country kinda guy? Were you this sarcastic when Obama was talking about spending billions of tax payer dollars to create 5 jobs, because...uh...it's going to keep the country strong? I bet you weren't such a smartass when all those UAW jobs were on the line.

    The video is so true though. We need to stop using fossil fuels while we still can.

    You do realize that more jobs means more tax revenue, which means that Obama has more money to piss away on entitelment programs?

    And, stop using fossil fuels? That don't make no sense.

    Tell ya what, look around your house and count up all the things that are made out of plastic.

    Oh - so we're losing our 'chance' to stop using fossil fuels?
    The development and growth in use of solar, wind and water sources is only getting bigger and more prevalent - it's slow but expanding.

    If we just chop off our fossil-fuel use we'll be belly up. Any change such as a fuel-source takes time to actually root properly without upending everything. You can't just hack it off like a dead branch.

    This oil spill, by the way, is Obama's Overton Window - he's using it as his golden opportunity to get done what he wanted. Without the spill going on and without people being stirred and demanding action he wouldn't have such an easy job of gathering support.

    Get different jobs. Jobs that don't impact the environment the way oil drilling does.

    And yes it does make sense. The damage to the environment will continue to mount, and we will run out of fossil fuels within this generations lifespan or the next. We need to be focusing on inventing, and refining renewable, environmentally friendly ways to provide the energy, and products produced by fossil fuels. I don't expect us to not have to rely on fossil fuels anytime soon. But in the next 10-15 years we better have a plan in place for implementing a better way to provide us with our energy needs.

    I'm not suggesting stopping the use of fossil fuels cold turkey. But I'm saying that this incident should raise awareness that there are better ways to provide for our energy needs, and we need to push for more research, and refinement on those technologies, and resources.

    What jobs - where!!!
    *looks for a job*
    Where on EARTH have you been for the last - oh - THREE YEARS.

    THERE ARE NO JOBS.

    Obama hasn't fixed that MAJOR problem yet - we're still skyhigh with unemployment. They're debating a bill about extending unemployment benefits, for pete's sake, because there ARE NO JOBS!

    Like what? Shrimping? Oystering? Crabbing? !!!

    Perhaps I can get a job choppin' cotton, like my ancestors on the plantation. Yes??

    With an unemployment rate at 10%, you make it sound as if there are employers just standing in line to give all those unemployed oilfield hands a new job. Where are all those super-duper green jobs? Are they ready for people to start monday morning?
