    I see that these greedy bottombeeders at BP still only care about diverting the Oil up to their tanker ship. They could have plugged it by now. This shows how much power they have. Not a word from the carpetbaggers in D.C who don't want to lose any Political contributions. You filthy greedy maggots! This is a horrible tragedy. ~BH

    Why can't we not allow the companies that drill at certain depths where it is nearly impossible to contain the spill without having massive environmental impacts? We do not have to get rid of all offshore drilling. Does anyone have a link to some data that reflects the amount of oil rigs in the gulf that are drilling at that water depth?

    Yeah, Like your hero Obama said we were going to do back in March?

    WASHINGTON — "The Obama administration is proposing to open vast expanses of water along the Atlantic coastline, the eastern Gulf of Mexico and the north coast of Alaska to oil and natural gas drilling, much of it for the first time, officials said Tuesday."

    Obama to Open Offshore Areas to Oil Drilling for First Time - NYTimes.com

    Hey bod? Your head is stuck so far up your ass that you can probably taste your Lunch. By the way, I am against all offshore Oil drilling you stupid dumb shit. ~BH

    I know they were trying to "fix" the leak with that big metal tower, and I know it didn't work. Does anyone know why it actually didn't end up working? I searched around and couldn't find out why.

    Turns out it's more important to profit off of what's left instead of just capping it for good. ~BH

    Yep, stop drilling and rely on foreign oil. Good plan!

    Also, of course, if Americans would pay realistic prices for their gas.... ya know, like the rest of the world does... then maybe we'd have better ways of drilling for it. Maybe, if we weren't so fucking obsessed with oil... then we wouldn't need to drill off our coastline.

    Wanna blame someone? Look in a mirror.... then look at the local government, and then the feds, and then BP and TransOcean and Haliburton.... Because there's plenty of blame to go around.

    Got some actual evidence to back that up or are you just deciding that's the way it is? Or... did the media tell you that's what's happening?
