Interior secretary to issue new drilling ban (Unfreakinbelievable)
MSNBC ^ | 6/22/2010 | nbc

Posted on 06/22/2010 6:13:28 PM PDT by tobyhill

Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said Tuesday he will issue a new order imposing a moratorium on deepwater drilling after a federal judge struck down the existing one.

Salazar said in a statement that the new order will contain additional information making clear why the six-month drilling pause was necessary in the wake of the Gulf oil spill. The judge in New Orleans who struck down the moratorium earlier in the day complained there wasn't enough justification for it.

Salazar pointed to indications of inadequate safety precautions by industry on deepwater wells. "Based on this ever-growing evidence, I will issue a new order in the coming days that eliminates any doubt that a moratorium is needed, appropriate, and within our authorities."

Back to court. The Bowrama administration won’t quit until they stop all private business.

The will of the people needs to be shoved up these jerks' arses, I'm afraid.

They are under the impression that nothing but their will matters.

...”Based on this ever-growing evidence”....What growing evidence, Salazar, the same type “evidence” you used when you typed in two paragraphs into an already signed report oil experts that outright said that an oil drilling ban would cause more harm than good?!

Like Glenn Beck said today, the ocean/offshore drilling companies are running 99.9% positive and you jackasses want to bring the American economy to a scretching halt over the 1%.............!? Idiots. =.=

God forgive me, I am really beginning to hate Barack Obama. Must start praying about that. Right after praying for our country to be saved from the SOB.

Does this mean Obama is going to demand that Brazil stop their offshore drilling he gave them 10 billion dollars for?

It's how the Left plays the game. It's the Al Franken election all over again:

"Coleman won!"
Let's recount.
"OK, Coleman won again!"
Let's recount.
"OK, Coleman won again!"
Let's recount.
"Hmpf! Franken won. Okay, game over. We're done here. Let's swear in our new senator."

Perhaps U.S. District Judge Martin Feldman will be amused? I think not.
