I voted. This was a setup. Savage had oil engineering people and they said no way this was not sabotage.

Saudis? China? Saudis employee?

Levin had a caller that was an engineer and thought the same. Somethin’ ain’t right.

Savage is a jerk determined to stir up conspiracy theories to up his ratings.

Go to Mark Levin Show and listen to the last 10 minutes of hour 2 and the first 15 minutes of hour 3. He has a rig survivor on there. The survivor was friends with those that died. It was an accident, cause yet to be determined. When working in 5,000+ feet of water and with pressures 30-40,000 psi, crap can happen no matter how prepared we think we are.

Pretty close for a See-BS poll.

FREEP THIS POLL ***PING!*** FRmail me if you want to be added or removed from the Fearless Poll-Freeping Freepers Ping list. And be sure to ping me to any polls that need Freepin', if I miss them. (looks like a medium volume list) (gordongekko909, founder of the pinglist, stays on the list until his ghost signs up for the list)

They can *Drill, baby, drill* on land in the Alaskan wilderness.

Drilling does not automatically imply offshore.

But the libs aren’t even offering anything but offshore, as if that’s the only option we have.

It doesn’t suit their agenda to keep us from gaining energy independence.

There are probably thousands of offshore rigs in deep water. Easily hundreds at that depth. How many blow outs in 8 years of Clinton and 8 years of Bush? And I know the stuff they have on the sea flor at the base of the well to prevent blowouts.

This was designed to destroy domestic energy production.

The Europeans have been drilling in the North Sea for decades, around sensitive fisheries.

This was designed to destroy domestic energy production.

The success record speaks for itself. But crap happens. Either from a freak occurrence from Mother Nature or negligence. Terrorism or sabotage (from off rig) is at the bottom of my list of causes.

If there is now justification, from a single event, to stop any new offshore drilling, then logic seems to carry that ALL U.S. controlled offshore wells should immediately be shut down.

So I guess gas should jump to $20 a gallon... that could prove to be very interesting.

Unless you want to use leafs, buy all the TP you can get your hands on.... once the gas is gone, so is nearly everything else.
