    How about “thanks over hyped media” Or “thank you environmental wackos” or “thank you Obama for 6 month moratorium, that sure helped the economy”

    “No one’s going to go back to work,” said analyst Brian Uhlmer at Pritchard Capital Partners in Houston. “You can have a non-moratorium moratorium.” He cited new federal standards that allow the government to recall drilling permits and require new filings.

    Harley, forget your rant against people you dislike for a change and look at a few pictures, okay? These are of Pensacola Beach, which got off lightly - so far. And then maybe, maybe you can comment about whether this is “overhyped” or not.

    My point and the point of this strip is that from day one the media has been hyping the oil spill as killing off entire gulf and all the beaches will be covered. From day one I have been saying hold on and wait to see which beaches are effected. Of course I put to much faith in Obama to stay out of the way and not use this as a crisis to push the man bad oil bad must have government control bad mans oil agenda.
    So on one hand yes those beaches are effected and hopefully will be cleaned up. Right now I am worried it might swing out and might hit my favorite beach on the East coast. But on the other hand tell me how many beaches are effected then tell me how many beaches are opened. Then lets look at the coverage since it has happened. conclusion over hyped media. oh and cfimeiatpap a couple of good hurricanes will help break a lot of the oil up. That is one way mother nature takes care of the oil the seeps out with mans help.

    The REAL PROBLEM IS NOT THE BLOODY BEACHES!!! It is what’s going on out in the water! Tourism is the least important impact of this event. The “moratorium’ should be tied to the reviews needed, along with stricter enforcement of EXISTING leases and drill permits already issued. There’s good cause to rescind a large number of those over 1,000 drill permits at depths over 3,000 feet of water.

    We do NOT eat beaches! Bluefin tuna may find this spill to be the final straw toward extinction, and these morons are worried about selling beer and t-shirts. Already endangered turtle species are at extreme risk, and a few hotels worry they may sell fewer condoms in their restroom machines serving “visitors”.

    Sorry, just trying to bring the concern toward the “zipper effect” that really does get press attention.

    It’s one of tose things I’ve never personnally seen, but I’m sure exists.

    My point is that Pensacola is at the fringes of the spill, which, lest we forget, is STILL GOING ON, and the “leak” is WORSE THAN EVER! So, yeah, we still have to worry about the sea life in the Gulf, as trout points out. When the gusher is still going on, there is no prediction that is hyped, because if it keeps going, it will lay oil throughout the entire Gulf of Mexico.
    If the oil is bad enough that a beach hundreds of miles away has a layer of oil and it is dangerous to even be near for humans, then what about all the life between the well and there?

    And harley, I am not going to believe one d@mn thing written by a PR flack for the Florida government. When did you start accepting government statements blindly? Oh, since it agreed with your preconceptions?

    motive…save your breath, your thoughts, your gray matter, your very energy.

    harley and folk truly believe this is no big deal.

    Even when repeatedly proven wrong, on they bleat.

    Mind boggling.

    mango, let me tell you, IT IS A BIG DEAL! Problem is to who and where! I am just agreeing with this strip. Over hype leads to stupidity. Like Obama linking this spill with cap and trade global warming. Yes there is a dead zone and yes it is bad. But it is not the dead gulf oil covered gulf dead beaches that will cripple everyone there. Nope it is the over hyped that is scaring away the tourist trade. It is the over hype that will make people who do fish in the 70% of the gulf that is open hide that fact that they fished out of the gulf. They will start hiding that fact because according to the media it is all tar covered. It will scare away people from the 90% of the beaches that are open. And the stupidest thing it will give environmental wackos a reason to keep beating the “man bad, oil bad drum. When just a week or two before even Obama was saying it was safe to drill. Well i am sure glad he is doing everything he can to not help, shoot some would say he is getting in the way. Further more fact is like I said from the start. Mother Nature seeps out more then this spill. I thought hug the earth people were all about “natural” Well this is as “natural” as it gets.
