Drill Baby Drillers...will you support your favored industry by vacationing on the...?
Gulf of Mexico this year?
BP needs your support but right now they need your dollars more than ever. BP will soon release a statement asking all Drill Baby Drill supporters to vacation on the beautiful oil soaked beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. They ask that you spend your dollars to feed the area's tourism industry so BP shareholders will not have to pay damages, those people really need their millions and millions of dollars to keep their lavish lifestyles from becoming too bleak.
Yes Drill Baby Drillers, go to the fish market on the Gulf and buy your kids a dead fish with a belly full of oil...let your children play with the dead fish on the oil soaked beaches, oil washes off no biggie!!! Charter a boat and take the family out in the Gulf so the kids can shout with glee at the pretty sheen of oil covering the surface of the water!!!! Try your hand at the latest craze in fishing called "scoop the dead fish off the surface with a net"!!!
Or will you all just avoid the Gulf of Mexico like the plague? God forbid any of you Drill Baby Drillers come face to face with the stark reality of the environmental risks that come along with a blind drive to earn massive monetary profits at the expense of the environment!!
Yes you all certainly should go where the beaches are still pristine and beautiful in order to properly preserve the fantasy world you all live in. Turn those blind eyes away from the devastation and loss of life created by the Industry you fully support...just as you all turned a blind eye to the devastation and loss of life created through your support of pre-emptive war in Iraq.
Cover your eyes, cover your ears and cover your mouth...what say ye?

Won't be taking a vacation this year because I have to pay more taxes so Obama can give it away to lazy pigs.
Besides, why do you want the US to have to keep buying oil from the Middle East. Why do you want us to remain subjugated by their politics even though they hate us and have worked to kill our people (9/11 anyone?).

I love oil and all of the good things it brings. The Gulf is a small price to pay for beautiful oil.

Isn't oil part of nature?
Just like the millions of tons of global warming gases that are being released by the volcano in Iceland.

Alright. If you dislike oil so much, I want you to go out and buy everything you need to make your home energy independent. By the way, I want you to find all those materials petroleum free. Go ahead, do it.

I don't get it...everyone demoralizing off shore drilling supporters as if oil spills have never occured from rigs transporting it overseas.
The only difference is where the oil is spilled...

Actually we already do, so yes, cant wait for vacation!
And by the way, if those platforms represent our future freedom from dependency on foreign oil then I say let the oil companies build them anywhere they want!

Yes. They'll need our help more than ever. See, we don't turn our backs on our citizens (legal) because of a tragedy.

fine, give up using oil. turn your computer off. Go commune with the land and save us from your stupid questions.Source(s): The event that happened on the gulf, the piercing of the flexible pipe, the failure of the backup system and backup back up system and the failure of the 3 separate valves that are supposed to fail off had a less than 1 and 1,000,000,000 chance of happening. It is roughly the same as having a nuclear sub go boom... This is a catastrophe. 11 people are dead. Show some bloody humanity.

As long as drinks are complimentary, I'm there.
