We're having too many disasters in our country, first the coal miners and now the oil rig workers. These are dangerous jobs these people are doing to supply us with energy. My sympathies are with all the families of those who are missing and presumed dead.

By all means, lets blame the ones that are always trying to help! The Goverment & Coast Guard. We all need to take the time thank these people performing the dangerous jobs (Coal Miners also)and when something like this happens, pull together as a nation, and pitch in. These same people that are blaming others for these disasters are going to be the first people bi---ing about the gas prices that are on the rise.

The most important things for Obama to do are: 1, place blame. 2 stop drilling and punish average Americans. I am all for developing other energy sources. Right now this spill needs to be cleaned up. (If Possible) But we still need the oil now. So drill baby drill.

Why is it that Halliburton is back in the news again. Seems like they are involved alot in one kind of disaster or another lately. Well that is the way it works I guess. So I guess Bush's bunch of dimwits have done it to us again.

If W were prez he would be blamed. The hypocrites aren't blaming Obummer though. This one result of our liberal government not allowing us to drill on dry land.(Alaska) Drilling for oil is necessary and risky. If you have a spill on dry ground at least it can be cleaned up much easier. Also it costs much less not having to build these costly water rigs. It would be great if we didn't need oil. But, trust me, that ain't happening. Vote out the environmentalist idiots and hypocrites.(They drive cars and fly expensive airplanes that require oil too.)

Why is it the ones who supposedly love God the most, disrespect his creation the most?(And the people fighting for it.)

These are the same people who don't believe in evolution. Sorry, just because you don't believe it, doesn't mean it ain't happening right now as we speak. None of them want to believe their huge, 4-wheel powered big rigs are mass contributing to the destruction of our ozone layer.

These are people who don't believe in global warming, that it's all a ploy by the liberal media. I can't believe how stupid people are. Let's just cover our eyes and say "lalalalalalalala!"

Drill spill" Drill spill"
It will happen over and over again! Wonder how many times a oil tanker has gone down miles and miles out in the ocean that hasn't been reported? Man is destroying Gods planet! What is going to replace all of the oil and natural gas we are pumping out of mother earth? Think maybe someday the earth will "IMPLODE" on its self? Take the air out of a tire and what happens? And with all the earthquakes don't you think them open pockets are collapsing? God giveth and God shall taketh away!

We'll replace the empty space with hydro carbons from my Ford Excursion that gets 5MPG on the highway... Maybe we can chop up baby seals and some polar bears to fill the gap.. If your head hasn't collapsed yet, I don't think we have anything to worry about with empty spaces... Now stop using your Laptop or Desktop because you don't understand that the silicone and process of making a computer is more detrimental to the enviroment than a semi truck....

Have you ever seen the ozone layer? What do you drive? A mule? Bicycle? If you are alive, you are consuming oil everyday. Could you name something now that doesn't require oil to produce?

A bike, actually, yes. My feet get me around pretty well too.

Are you seriously as ignorant as you're making yourself out to be?

Your brilliance is overwhelmingly clear, especially with that curious apostrophe. I'm sure you just put in it there for decoration, right? Like you do with deer heads on your wall?

Lighten up a little. You don't know me. And don't want to. Its fun to agitate libs. They sadly have no sense of humour.
