Best thing for who?
I was wondering what the feelings of the membership are now about drilling. Since the oil spill in the gulf, do you now favor continuing drilling. Does it bother you to drill in deep water?
When I can't refuel my car and the natural gas and electric supply to my house goes offline, when I can't go to Tesco and buy food because the freight trucks can't deliver, when mains water and sewerage goes down because the water supply company people can't get to work anymore, when some yahoo is trying to break my front door down because he wants what I have left ....
... that's when I'll get bothered.
In the meantime, keep drilling.
They were preparing for a major oil disaster here, with many trained to man the local beaches. Fortunately, nothing happened.
Obama will really have the economy reeling if his lib friends get their way and shut down the oil industry. It's just nuts.
Continue drilling. These Gulf Coast, Southern Plains and Rocky Mountain states' economies are being destroyed by this moratorium. It's trickle down too, not just the greasy hairs in the boardrooms. Welders, roughnecks, truckers, etc. are cooling off their equipment for too long while these 3rd world bastards rake in the cash because we need the refined goods to transport and manufacture.
If oil goes up and stays up in the $150 range, that might cause a double dip recession. The economy is quite fragile as it is. Economies not only in the US but around the world would be affected. The moron-in-chief has no answers except to nationalize the oil companies.
