  • Sammy -

    How do you know this to be fact? or is this speculation from you or a website that you found? I mean I will ask you the same question you asked in a previous blog "were you there"??? Do you know 100% for this to be true? I know the answer is NO so why blow smoke about a fire you don't know to be burning?

    President Obama and his team of bureaucrats going to the gulf to tell them how to produce (or not produce) oil is like a new head of a hospital running down to the Operating Room to show them how to perform an operation. A friend recently told me the first drilling application to be approved after the BP spill was 2,400 pages long! That will help about as much to give us energy independence as the Energy Department has in the past 35 years! We are more dependent on foreign oil now than when that department was created.

    Turbo Timmy Guithner saying the Republicans will be to blame if we have a currency collapse (because they held up increasing the debt limit) is like your spendthrift child saying you will be to blame for his bankruptcy if you don't make a payment on the kid's credit card. It's the spending stupid!

  • Mr.Sam,

    I will agree with alot of what you pointed out and I will dissagree with alot as well! Let me just open by saying that I work in the Gulf Of Mexico upon an oil and natural gas production platform, as far as government being "in bed" with the oil companies, I will disagree whole heartedly, the company I work for actually bought the field I work in because the MMS (at the time) ran POGO out of the gulf! As for what Obama has done to the oil producing south, I will not agree more, we just a month ago got a drilling rig on our platform to drill 2 new wells, the aplications were rediculous! and the BOEMRE is there on a daily basis (weather permitting) when they could be out doing surprise inspections which they do on a regular basis! these are just a couple of points on which I agree or disagree with your blog! however if you have questions as to how the Transocean/BP disaster have really changed the offshore oil life please send me an email and I will answer your questions.
