Rush Limbaugh says, "The oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is not the environmental disaster that
was precipitated.........." and it was caused by the environmentalist anyway.

This is news. Everybody knows that not 100% of the oil is gone. We do know that most of it is and it will be a short time when all of it is gone. Does anyone remember the environmental groups saying that it will take years for everything to get back to normal? I guess they lied again.

If they didnt have to drill 1 mile down there would not have been this leak.

This is all Obama's fault. He is making us rely on his Muslim relatives around the world for our oil.

We need wheels made of stone and no floor boards. Human energy like Fred Flintstone used to use. Less oil needed.

If we don't find another energy source besides oil, we will be living in the stone age and you will be looking thru your floor boards. But hey, we have more important issues like gay marriage and abortion, oh yeah, and whether or not someone is patriotic.

Well its a good thing you brilliant liberals came along. Soon we will have leprechaun powered cars that will drive us all the way to the land of rainbows and unicorns.

When you get there, you can send a post card back to reality.

I can not shake the feeling that somehow we have been fooled by this horrible company that says they are "Beyond Petroleum". Yeah, they are way beyond that...they are into pollution, politics, pay-offs, and so much more.

There is no reason for anyone to believe they are honest in anything they do. That is why the Obama Administration should nationalize them, take their profits to give to Earth friendly causes, and then make the management of this bunch of polluters do hard time in prison, or work for Greenpeace for the next 20 years.
