    So the OP shows that regulation is good, lowering restriction leads to catastrophes.

    Maybe in your mind. But what the OP shows us that liberal claims of "big oil" in the pocket of GOP is just stupid, blind and hypocritical.

    Awefully selective of you to have missed that.

    NO, in reality. Loosen restrictions, this type of thing happens. And history shows that time and time again

    How great is it when anti-regulation conservatives think it's a good shot to pin lack of regulation on a Democrat.

    Good, we all agree that much more draconian regulation, oversight, and government control needs to be placed on oil companies.

    Without objection, the motion passes.

    That or perhaps the point is that the Sierra Club has been absolutely right in their "just say no!" stance on offshore drilling?
