"a) The deep rig workers are out of work NOW."
They're being employed in the control and cleanup efforts earning their typical wages.

"b)Taxes are going up across the board for EVERYONE. The largest increase, is for people making lass than 55k."
I could find no solid evidence on this, just anticipation and suspicions of this happening in the near future. It's also important to note that the executive branch does not have a direct hand in taxes, his only legislative power is the threat of the veto. I can understand being butthurt at congress when/if the tax hike occurs but people want to bitch at the figure head because they forgot how our legislative system works.

"d) Who said is wasn't a valid point of view?"
I wasn't arguing against anything, just making a point and due to characters limits it got squished together- I get long winded, sowwy... I go off on tangents all the time.

Well. Here in Alabama, land of the lazy drats, lower tier jobs are a dime a dozen. Now hiring signs all over the place in fast food.

People are just content to collect unemployment with our jobless rate at 10%.

Sad.

Go work at McDonalds or Wal-Mart FCS.

Easier said than done.

I've put in at LEAST 30 apps recently and haven't gotten so much as a call. I've called a few of the places and found out they aren't even hiring.

These INCLUDE fast food, Wal-marts, K-marts, a few chinese places, etc.

It's damn near impossible to find a job anymore, especially considering that the places you're thinking it must be so easy to get a job at, those starting places like McDonalds and the like, have reached a point where they're cutting hours down for the workers they already have.

I have a friend who works at Taco Bell and he's lucky to get 15 hours in some weeks.

@dick: (sorry about that)

a) The deep rig workers are out of work NOW.
b)Taxes are going up across the board for EVERYONE. The largest increase, is for people making lass than 55k.
c)Why get another job when you are making money without doing anything? Ending benefits when they should be would motivate people to get off ass and look harder. Don't forget about the people who have given up searching. Go work at McDonalds or Wal-Mart FCS.
d) Who said is wasn't a valid point of view? We should never, ever blindly follow one party. We should always keep an open mind.

Dicken: There's nothing inherently wrong with socialism...
AuburnJunky: Obama and the dems are pushing social liberalism, not socialism.

Social Liberalism is a valid political view with legitimate values and ideals. Liberalism , Social Liberalism and Libertarianism should not be followed blindly; The belief that one party or one person is entirely correct and should be followed without contention is retarded. We should identify components that are compatible and ideal and use them to fortify, alter and enhance each other. Every system has ideas that we can adapt and incorporate; we do not have to subscribe to any system wholly. Dismissing schools of thought based on perception or bias is stupid. We should recognize that most political concepts are inherently neutral and only their implementation should be carry stigmas; thus, we can use all political concepts to inform and develop a new, more cohesive and superior unified ideal... this is what a republic is supposed to be

Taylor Stone: Without taxes, there'd be no Unemployment, no Healthcare..."
AburunJunky: That's the point. Extension of unemployment benefits has caused our jobs crisis to be extended.

It doesn't make sense to me how extending unemployment benefits caused the jobs crisis to be extended. I just got off unemployment and I call tell you that it's not pleasant. Most people made half of their income if not less. My Father is currently on unemployment and is receiving roughly 17% of his previous earned income. I'm sure that giving him barely enough money to be alive, and not enough to pay his bills is really holding him back from getting that next job. The percentage of people capable of living at a comfortable level on unemployment benefits is small, and even they probably want more than to be able to hit up blockbuster once a month. Claiming that extending unemployment has exacerbated the job crisis is not only NOT provable, or verifiable but it is also insensitive and i

Dicken: My paychecks haven't dropped, neither has my sisters, my girlfriends or my brother-in-law's
AuburnJunky: How much do you make? Check this out. Not shown on that link, is the fact that taxes for those making UNDER $55k are going up 5%. That's a massive increase that we were told WOULDN'T happen.

That sources you give are a bit misleading, as has been stated previously. 2 of the four mentioned make under 55k and two mentioned make over 55k.

Doing research I discovered that what the Kiplinger article is reffering to is the repeal of the Bush Tax cuts on individuals making over 250,000K annually (along with other factors.) More than 50% of the people effected by this are in the top 5% of income earners in the united states (brookings.edu/topics/tax-cuts.aspx) It is important to not that this is for INDIVIDUALS making over $250,000 anuually and not combined or family income. As a side not I couldn't find any mention of a 5% increase for people under 55k anywh

Dicken: Besides tourism & ~30% of fishing grounds the gulf coast is largely unaffected.
AuburnJunky: Aside from the tens on thousands out of work due to the deep sea drilling ban.

This is unfortunately a myth. There WAS a proposed ban that was struck down by federal courts saying it was in violation of existing laws. There us a NEW proposal that works within the boundaries of the law, however it does not yet have judicial approval, and may never come to fruition. Additionally, it is a temporary plan that would only last until the 30th of November. ANother important distinction that it makes is halting offshore drilling within a certain proximity to American shore where it can cause damage to the livelihood and well-being of American people. Lastly, it is not a ban on current offshore drilling operations instead it calls for a halt on the development on new projects and and a temporary cease of all offshore drill stations for in-depth inspections and enforcement.

What cracks me up is that the first billboard warns of Marxist Socialism, but has a picture of Vladimir Lenin.

LOL at the socialism banner, but sad how socialism is so misconstrued in the states right now.

If nazi's, russia, and china are the first things you thing of when you hear the word socialism, you are a moron. Pick up a freakin' book.

Why would I try to sneak a mortar into school when I could just use it on the school?

To be honest, you'd have to be some sort of dumbass to use a mortar inside a school anyway...

Humans have a bad habit of playing with chance, and more often than not, sh*t like this is the end result.

What I'M trying to say is, don't play with chance. Make your own damn luck by knowing all the possibilities beforehand and preparing for them.

But, obviously, common sense like this doesn't apply when it comes to things that are valuable and can make someone tons of money.

"Yeah, go ahead, drill drill drill away. It's not like the ocean isn't an incredibly hostile and unpredictable environment that we don't know enough about.
It's not like you're drilling in hurricane territory in the first place.
And without all those environmental possibilities, there's absolutely NO CHANCE of a failure on the rig itself.
So obviously we don't need to take any precautions at all against what might happen if something does fail.
And if something should fail... We'll just do what we did last time. Not that that worked..."

And don't try to give me any sh*t about how we "thought it would work," since this same damn thing has happened once before, and the same tactics we used this time failed to work then.

As for the idea that it's impossible to come up with a plan that is guaranteed to work...

As true as that is, it IS possible to come up wtih a plan that

A) Hasn't failed multiple times in the past

and B) Has a fairly decent chance of working, with all things considered.

And you can only use "all things considered" when you know enough about the environment to actually consider all things.

In other words, STOP F*CKING WITH THINGS YOU DON'T KNOW ENOUGH ABOUT.

It's like seeing a horde of diamonds hidden on the other end of a massive, dark tunnel in a foreign land you've never been to before.

I sure as hell wouldn't rush through the tunnel without trying to find out as much as I could about it..

it isn't strange that it was so hard to fix the leak (even a temporary fix) because of how far underwater it is. That's one hell of a hostile environment.


No, my point was that if we don't know enough about it to have an emergency plan (that will actually work) should something go wrong, then we shouldn't be f*cking with it in the first place.

As for not doing deep sea oil drilling - are you going to be the person to tell the industrially developed world that their civilisation is ended and the population will have to rapidly drop, i.e. many people die? Because that's what would happen if oil mining ends now.

No, I'm gonna be the one to tell the world that they need to CUT BACK on the excessive use of oil in the first place.

And besides that, there are plenty of other places to obtain oil. Or there would be if people didn't f*ck up public relations with the places that have it.
