Another oil rig explodes - Updated

Just great. Getting ready to shut down the puter and see this breaking news. Another oil rig just exploded in the Gulf. No deaths. It was a small rig in shallow water so not as big a disaster as the BP one, but still. How many accidents before we get serious about investing in alternate energy?

Update: One day before the explosion from the company that owns the rig.
“I have been in the oil and gas industry for 40 years, and this administration is trying to break us,” said Barbara Dianne Hagood, senior landman for Mariner Energy, a small company. “The moratorium they imposed is going to be a financial disaster for the gulf coast, gulf coast employees and gulf coast residents.”

I read about that in the Palm Beach Post this morning. The story prompted all kinds of comments about Obama and his "merry Bunch of Muslims" and more about punishment for the sin of allowing a Muslim president.

Nothing about better safety enforcement - nothing whatever about making sure drilling doesn't make life unlivable. I mean that would be commonism, right?

According to Senator Nelson here, much of the state wants more drilling and more drilling everywhere, because that 3% of the worlds reserves we have are going to make a huge difference.

You can't fix stupid - hell, you can't even expect them to tell they're being screwed by people who are laughing at them all the while.

The stupid has been so out of control. Crazy cons are in meltdown. Can't believe the cognitive dissonance hasn't actually made their heads explode yet.

And bizarre comments. Det News is a study in desperate transference
