    I suppose there's a bit of irony here, but what the hell, only working people are screwed - RW pols won't give a damn. Right Sarah?

    I'm not sure how you've arrived at point B from point A.

    Yes, studies have shown that oil rigs prevent a lot of oil that NATURALLY seeps from the earth from seeping because it was being collected by drilling. Is there an accident every 10-20 years? Yes, indeed. Show me one industrialized sector of our society that doesn't have really bad accidents???? (crickets chirping). Thats right.

    Should we stopped flying airplanes because a plane crashes now and then? Stop using trains since a train derails occassionally? Stop using ships, since sometimes they sink? Hey, should we outlaw all flammable materials man produces or uses.....since a large fire can really harm the environment? Should we stop developing medicines, since they sometimes are tested on animals? Hey, lets ban fishing also, thats bad for the fish. And stop hunting deer. Because it's bad for the deer that die. Oh, and we should also stop building and driving cars, because if we scraped all the dead bugs off windshields, well, thats a trillion or so precious insects that die because we drive cars. Lets ban coal mining, since mines sometimes collapse.

    And now lets ban oil, since drilling for it means a bad accident happens sometimes.

    So, ANY liberal that confesses he or she still uses air conditioning, heating, drives a vehicle, uses plastic of any type (plastic is made from petroleum) or consumes anything that was transported to the place of purchase by a gasoline powered machine.

    Hey, libbies, practice what you preach. Eliminate the reliance of oil in any way, shape or form from your life. Starting........................now. Oh, wait, you can't read this post or respond to it if you started now, since your computer is powered by electricity, which comes from coal plants, nuke plants, etc, which are staffed by men who drive to work. So........your mere presence on this message board means you are consuming unnecessary electricity, which puts more profit into the evil power companies pockets, which then employes more people, people who drive to work, using gas that comes from oil, oil that is drilled, which as we all know kills bambi, shamu and flipper all at the same time. You evil libs.

    Oddly enough, Caribou Barbie's Facebook page has been blank on the oil spill. Is anyone shocked by this?

    IRONY, an outcome of events contrary to what was, or might have been, expected.
    So, thanks for proving you (a RW troll) really don't give a shit about the working men and women whose lives have been destroyed by BP. What the fuck, there just the hoi polloi.

    Can you name some people who were killed because of this oil spill? (Not talking the initial explosion, but the oil itself).

    You don't honestly expect me to believe that you visit her facebook page do you?

    Are you listed as a friend of "Caribou Barbie?"

    Does she even have a facebook page? If so, I do you know it is really her that monitors it?

    No. I rely on our resident PDS patient, US Army Retarded to keep me up to date with Palin's Facebook crap.

    I was honestly hoping you'd link me to the page. :lol:

    I have never gotten involved with Facebook and thought maybe I'd actually get a link to the page without having to set up an account.
