Offshore Oil Drilling Moratorium Lifted


And a big fuck you to Sen. Mary Landrieu. One of the main reasons I don't give money to the DSCC anymore.


Those 33 oil rigs affected by the moratorium imposed post-BP spill can get back to work.

Hah fucking zah.

Hasn't stopped the whining though:
"We're still in the dark," said Hornbeck, who heads up one of the companies that sued to block Interior's initial moratorium. His company provides vessels and other services for the offshore industry.

"The devil is in the details, as they say, and the industry hasn't seen the final requirements for what we would have to do to be able to actually get a permit issued," he added. "Until that is done, lifting the moratorium may be just a moot or perfunctory act. ... Right now, I'm skeptical that it will be anytime soon that permits will be issued even if the moratorium is lifted."

Oh, you're skeptical? Really? You should be on your knees thanking God your industry wasn't wiped out, the way a lot of beachfront restaurants and fishing operations were. You should be grateful you weren't told to find another line of work because the country decided your business was too risky to the country's other vital resources.

You should have been told to shut your yap and quit your whining, and try providing "vessels and other services" to the thousands of oil rigs still chugging merrily along during the deepwater moratorium.

Pull yourself up by your own bootstraps, man. Show some personal responsibility. Figures you'd run straight for the lawyers. Of course you did. It's only a bad thing when liberals do it.
