    Shut what down? Do you honestly believe the government wants to shut down the energy industry? Seeing that the government is in the pocket of big energy I kind of doubt it.

    In case you haven't noticed, they're doing just that.

    A lot of people thought the same thing in '06 when the other party was thrown out. It won't be long when you realize that nothing has changed. The truth is republicans are no better than democrats. History has proven that over and over again.
    Was this your first election?

    Temporarily shutting down one mine because the company wouldn't follow environmental regulations is not shutting down the energy industry. It's government doing it's job to protect its citizens.
    Did you forget to take your medication today? You seem to be a little delusional.

    You be sure and let me know when that mine re-opens and go back into production. K?

    BTW, how many drilling permits have been issued since the moratorium ended? A grand total of two.

    I'm surprised you came in here with that crap Harry, this was just recently in the news.

    The only reason it won't go back into production if it isn't profitable.
    If the moratorium prevents another disaster then it did it's job. There were 2 deepwater permits issued since it expired. How many deepwater permits would have been issued without the moratorium?

    Don't you think it's better for everyone to prevent oil spills in the first place instead of cleaning them up after they happen?
    Thousands of new drilling permits have been issued all over the country. After the BP spill it was wise to make sure new deep water wells were safe.

    Hundreds of oil wells and a handful of oil spills over many years does not make it a national disaster.

    This was the question.
    How many drilling permits have you seen lately?
    Not how many permits were issued after the moratorium expired. Or deepwater permits.
    Please pay attention.
