Yeah, "drill here, drill now...", right? Who needs a bunch of shore birds or beaches anyway, right?

I agree with you some what. People don't want you to drill but when they think of news ways to get energy like wind energy they bitch about the wind mills.

Point in case look at what is going on in Cape Cod and on a more local scale the same thing is going on in Somerset County along the Turnpike. They want to install wind mills and people complain they will ruin property values and views.

They said the wind mills off Cape Cod would appear to be 1/2" tall on the horizon. You either want to drill or come up other means. You can't bitch about both.

personally, i think the windmills are kinda cool looking. but if i had a multimillion dollar home on the beach, yeah, i might complain. just put 'em out further. or live with 'em, i'm sure the beach dwellers are more in tune with animal conservation than most.
the one's on the tpke at breezewood or wherever they are are interesting.
Of course there's always solar but or geo thermal but geothermal is kind of expensive and people think no sun, no energy.

If greenpeace wants to really do something about the oil spill, quit crabbin about it and get out there and help the people who are trying to contain the spill. If the government is going to be slow about containing the spill, I say screw them and go ahead and do what ya have to do, inorder to contain the spill. Maybe you four think we don't need beaches or birds. But we do. I honestly don't know what we need to do to get away from foreign oil, expect go back to using coal and clean coal plants. Yes, the windmills are a good idea, but hey, the cost to maintain them is outrageous. Some spots are great for wind power, other places just don't have much wind at all. I just hate to see people who make a living off of fishing etc. do without . It's rough enough right now for everyone, now it will be a little rougher.

I agree, no one cares about a few birds and shrimp. Louisianna has always been a dirty state, so whats a little oil down at the beach? Maybe you will get lucky and have a category 5 hurricane later this summer and wash it all away. If not, it's only Louisianna so who cares. Maybe Ray Nagin will fix it all up for you.

Uneducated, drunk and homo are no way to go through life. But if you must, carry on that way.

And, I think I educated her rather well, seeing as how little you or your uncle/father were able to teach her. As for drunk, yeah, I'll cop to that.

Let's see, I don't wear a seatbelt and I don't use a helmet on my motorcycle. And I don't own an assault rifle to defend myself in Louisiana, guess I'm out.
