I looked at this last night and got absolutely furious:

Re: Guard watches coast for oil slick's first wave

I take back some of my earlier negativity. The cap is collecting right now about 3/4th of the total spill. They are ramping it up each day. If they can get 20,000 barrels a day from it like they are expected to, then that should greatly, greatly slow the spill until the relief wells are finished.

At this point, they can finally start making a dent on the oil thats on the surface....maybe most of florida is saved now, maybe the greater atlantic....

Re: Guard watches coast for oil slick's first wave

I'll have to say as a supporter of offshore drilling our politicians (both parties) have really screwed the public with these oil rigs. I would have never thought that we would have an oil leak that could go on for a month and this one could go for a six or more months. How the hell could goverment allow this to happen? I'm not big on regulations but this is just common sense that we have ways of stopping a major oil leak. Every single one of them Republican and Democratic have sold us off to big oil and there influence in Washington.

Nice try, but we all know that Republicans are Big Oil, for the most part. Blame Louisiana and Texas cause they profited. Have you ever heard "live by the sword die by the sword?"

Thats pretty stupid. Its was Obama office thats signed off on this and it was also Obama who gave the OK to start new offshore drilling in VA and other areas. Also how did Louisiana and Texas profit off this oil well. Both parties are to blame period.

Even through all the devastatison they are crying about don't take away he oil money. don;t take away teh opil well. hoe si thast stuopid. You live by the oil and when something happens we pretend like nothing is suppose to happen. Oil rigs are perfect when the profit comes in. But, when something goes wrong. Well we see the results. It's a conscience choice, nobody twisted their arms for that oil money. They wanted more and more.

No one says oil rigs are perfect but we do expect a decent safty plan in place when something does happen and thats the problem I have.

The only problem is nothing can be done. If you are digging one mile beneath teh sea, what can you do? Absolutely nothing. Somethings humans can't do. Pray. that's one rig, and it did all this damage that means digging down there is really really dangerous to the environment.

I'm thinking Batman could come up with some gadgets to get the job done.

Aquaman could have saved the animals. Would have been a whole Justice League issue.

From what I have read it seems that all the reasearch has gone into drilling these things but no research has gone into stopping a leak and safty. We can come up with a way to cap these things its just the money (the oil companies money) has not been used to do so and the goverment has not forced them to do the research. If the gov. said the only way you can drill is to come up with a safty devise to shut them down and a back up syetem if the first one fails the oil companies would find ways to shut them down. What has happened is the oil companies have thrown money around to both parties and they have turned a blind eye.

Green Lantern could've capped it off too, plus he's got a movie coming out in 2011.
