    Yo Silhouette - remember when you said this?

    Well, you were WRONG - according to MSNBC - the gulf oil platforms came out fine, and there are no oil spills. Put THAT in your pipe and smoke it. :D

    Yeah, Gustav missed them this time..

    But there's always next year after another long while of icecaps melting and affecting global weather patterns even more adversely.. :D

    And they're really pushing offshore of the shelf, not the gulf. And you're wilfully overlooking my points in the thread where I posted the picture of the San Andreas Fault.

    The increasing frequency and strength of hurricanes in the Gulf region, along with overdue massive fault ruptures on the West Coast just don't bode well for the lofty hopes of BigOil magnates of expanding their empire offshore.. LA doesn't want their only source of big revenue (pristine beaches) flushed down the commode.

    Alternatives are where it's at. Safe, clean, non-fossil-fuel alternatives. You can either get with the 21st Century or perish in greedy, smudgy, gassy defiance.

    I hope everyone knows this whole drill not drill thing is a big red herring!

    Of course we're going to drill. We've been drilling to the max as it is. As we speak there is a three year wait for all the materials to build even just one more offshore platform... then you still have to build that platform.

    What Progressives are saying is this and it makes perfect sense. DRILL IN THE LOW RISK PLACES WHERE OIL IS KNOWN TO BE FIRST! Big Oil already holds one million acres in oil drilling leases both on and off shore.

    Being allowed to drill never was the issue here at all. The issue is that Big Oil knows that President Obama will move much faster at alternative enery sources thus for evironmental reasons will not be as inclined to dole out oil drilling leases in pristine areas of off the coasts of states whose economies depend largely on tourisum.

    All this screaming about we need to drill is about getting as much of the country locked down for future drilling before there's an administration change. Has absolutely nothing to do with bringing in more oil. They could go out today and drill for more oil all over the countrty and if they could get the platforms even drill off shore.

    BIG RED HERRING!

    this is just sad overall, Sil being acting mad there was not more destruction out of ahte for Republicans, and Republicans useing the dumb statements by Sil to paint the whole left as wanting it to happen.

    Im not sure who is the dumber one.

    You know topgun....:cool:

    As rabidly pro-Obama as you are....it's a little weird that you're pro-drilling and pro-oil.

    Because you know Obama isn't...

    Interesting. So much for my theory that the GOP has moles posing as Obamabots to stir up the democratic stinky pot, divide and conquer..
