LOL!! So are you for or against the drilling ban? I can't tell now. Or are you both for and against it at the same time schizo-doc? It seems like you are just for Obama. What a hoot!
Yes they allowed a new permit or two after months of a de facto drilling ban, for no good reason. What's your point about the shrimp? That was the first major blowout in decades. But if you really think the ban is a good idea because of a blowout, then logically you should want a permanent ban. Otherwise I have no freaking idea what your point is. Or maybe your point is "DON'T CRITICIZE MY GUY OBAMA!!!!!!!".
What is Brazil's "rational energy policy"? They drill for lots of offshore energy, schizo-doc. That's one big part of it. And you're against allowing more offshore drilling, aren't you!?!?!?! Or are you for it schizo-doc? Or are just against criticizing Obama?
"Guys like Ilap are much more interested in finger pointing than problem solving."
You seem to have settled on this as your evasive BS response. If you were to show where I'm off the mark in criticizing all the roadblocks to domestic energy production, that would be one thing, but you don't do that. It's like a football team that loses every game and someone says the coach should be fired, and you respond "You're more interested in finger pointing than problem solving".
