I feel that we need more drilling on land I understand that it's all dangerous because My son is a driller. But I think because its so hard do plug a hole in water that it should be limited

We must continue, we have no choice until we find alternative fuels for we are all greedy ass fuel hogs. We must break our dependance on Sand Rat Oil. Accidents happen everyday.

Why would I not support it? We live in a world being driven by oil. Why is it okay to allow other nations to drill and use their resources. If we REALLY are worried about the environment, why are we okay with the rest of the world drilling? Drill baby Drill!

If we REALLY are worried about the environment, are we just suggesting the rest of the world that is drilling oil for us to consume can go to hell in a hand basket?
Oil drives our world right now wether we like it or not. Does it make sense to avoid drilling to our own detriment?
We are in a weak economy people... we need the jobs, the exports and revenue.
We are living in a world that is becoming more hostile toward us. Do we depend on them to provide our fuel?
Not drilling is a main ingredient in a recipe for sure disaster.
Opposing it may make you feel smart and cool - but this is not complicated folks. Let's drill and get on with being a responsible nation. Good grief.
