I believe one disaster was one too many. It will have a very negative impact on all the creatures who inhabit the ocean for many years to come. We have not been able to completely reverse the damage and we never will. OFF SHORE DRILLING MUST NOT CONTINUE< it needs to STOP NOW !!! It should be ILLEGAL< THE RICH ARE RICH ENOUGH< THE GREEDY THINK ONLY OF THEMSELVES, and we are tired of their small mindedness.

I am entitled to MY OWN OPINION, and to vote my own way, if you don't like it, you can kiss my ass. Plain and simple. I don't remember pulling your chain, so mind your own business, I will let you know if I am interested in your opinion, until then, hold your breath and count... I don't like smart asses. I don't bother anyone, but I don't take shit either.

If we don`t drill off shore then some other country well move the drills 10 miles father out and they well drill. Where Obama stopped off shore drilling in the Gulf Chain has now worked out a deal with Cuba to move 15 miles father off our shores and drill. So stopping off shore drilling doesn’t mean that there will be no drilling it just means that we won` t get the oil. And if there is another spill it means that we won`t have a say in cleaning it up

Thank you for informing me of that fact, as I wasn't aware of it. I also want to say thank you for doing so in a respectful manner. I appreciate that. So basically, there is no way to stop the off shore drilling even if the Us isn't drilling? That seems like a damned if we do, damned if we don't situation. I just feel that off shore drilling is a sure fire way to destroy the oceans and all of the creatures that reside there. Many people depend on the oceans to make a living such as fisherman, and tour boats (no one is going to want to go out if there is nothing to see but black pollution (oil) and dead sea creatures floating on top, or dead beached whales.) Not to mention all of the shore lines and beaches that we will not be able to enjoy and pass on to future generations. Again, thank you for the information, as I had no idea. I wish there was something that could be done to help this situation, but I see now that there isn't. That is such a tragedy, I love the ocean. I wanted to spend a weekend on the beach before I pass on, but I know that will not be happening. I don't have that much time left and am unable physically or financially to make the trip, but that has been the only thing I have ever wanted since I was a teenager.
