  • Okay, I need someone who knows a lot more about this topic than I do to explain something to me. Since the Gulf of Mexico is mostly international water, how does BO plan to stop drilling from happening? I can understand how he plans to stop US companies from drilling in deep water, but how about the Chinese and Cubans and Mexicans and anyone else who isn't subject to US law? Does he plan to have the Navy drive up next to a rig and threaten them?

  • Our government failed to do the oversight in the first place, we the people pay for so many government agency's that fail to do their jobs in the first place, and when they don't and get caught, they punish everyone else, I would love to know how many government people, and how much they get paid to not to do their job concerning off-shore drilling.

  • Statistically one is safer on an offshore rig than flying on an airplane yet people continue to take the risk. Driving a car is an astronomical difference. We did not become the strongest nation in the world by not taking risk, otherwise we would still be rubbing two sticks together and pulling our plows with an ox. Just as a plan crash, investigate it, clean it up and make sure it doesn't happen again
