What surprises me is that we havn't let the US Navy take a stab at plugging the oil well. They have submarines, specialized technology, and also past experience in the Persian Gulf fixing damaged offshore wells.

If Al Queda blew up an oil rig off the coast of Virginia state, would the White House just let oil spew for months onto the beaches of Martha's Vinyard?

This is preposterous, we obvious have technical capability to plug a hole a few feet in diameter, even if it is a mile under water, so what is the damn hold up?

Obama is busy gearing up George Soros' endeavour off the Brazilian coast in the south Atlantic. you Louisiana people are left to fend for your self. After you start taking matters into your own hands, Obama can pull an Arizona trick on you and take you to court for fending for yourselves. Don't you just love socialism and communism? It's even better when they join forces into socialism/communism such as Soros/Obama, Inc.

In the meantime, a supper skimmer ship, is setting in Norfolk. Waiting on Cost Guard approval, waiting on EPA approval, and waiting on Berry approval.

Don't worry though, they'll get around to it, in a month or two.

When is someone going to step up to the plate and actually start LEADING, actually SAY DAMN THE REGULATIONS! PUT EVERYTHING TO WORK!

We can't use the Dutch system, it puts some oil back in the water. So in the EPA's mind, it's better to have 100% of the oil in the water.

This ship is the same way, it will put some oil back in the water, but again, the EPA thinks it's better to have 100% of the oil in the water, heading for land!

This is just getting stupider by the day, week, and month!!!!!!
