Oil leak in the Gulf is very bad news

While the oil leaking in the Gulf is very bad news, Obama’s knee-jerk suspension of all planned exploratory oil drilling in the Arctic Ocean off Alaska until at least 2011 and six month moratorium on previous permitted wells in the Gulf itself, is even worst. Since offshore drilling began off the coasts of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida and Texas, over 30,000 rigs have operated successfully, until the BP Deep Horizon platform mysteriously exploded and sank.
On this 66th anniversary of the D-Day invasion, one wonders if upon receiving reports of Allied casualties on the Beaches of Normandy, Obama would have ordered an immediate retreat until his academic commission could study what went wrong, who was responsible and all necessary Law Suits had been dutifully filed.
Much like Patton and Montgomery, BP pushes forward, attacking the problem with one strategy after another, fighting to prevail against all odds. Meanwhile, back in D.C., our Master and Commander hangs with another championship sports team, hosts another celebrity bash, plays another round of Golf, shoots another game of Hoops, headlines another democrat fundraiser and makes yet another speech vilifying British Petroleum – the one corporation all Americans are now depending on to save the Gulf Coast.
During WWII, when things looked the bleakest, Winston Churchill inspired his countrymen with these famous words, “We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender.”
Today, with the future of our Golf Coast, our Economy and American’s leadership in the World all hanging in the balance, Barack Obama seeks to similarly inspire his ‘peeps’ with a new mantra for the ages, “Party, Party.”

    I thought that I would throw this one up on your blog to get our minds around ideas for this oil spill fix. My letter herein is what I have been sending out to people in our government, BP, environment groups and news blogs etc. We need to start a massive email protest and a human barrage movement. They are pussy-footin’ around this issue like tomorrow is just another day! What is going on in the Gulf of Mexico is disgusting. It is criminal. My thoughts are expressed herein:
    GULF OF MEXICO DEEPWATER HORIZON OIL SPILL ACCIDENT -- MY INTUITIVE SCENARIO: Halliburton – they are the contractor behind the defective blow-out preventer (BOP), etc., etc. besides the numerous technology contractors you would think…
    When the crew was changing drilling bits, the rubber from the defective blow-out preventer was attached to the drilling bit when the crew brought the bit up for the change. There are stories going around that this rubber was seen floating in the ocean. So someone would have had
