Seahawk Drilling declared bankruptcy last month due to their customers not being able to secure permits for shallow water drilling from the regulators at the Bureau of Ocean Energy Mangagement, Regulation, and Enforcement, despite the fact that in the past 15 years, over 11,000 shallow water wells have been drilled with a total of 15 barrels of oil being spilled from well control incidents.
Paranoia and political games are not helping our economy. Obama claimed he was going to do so much to help create jobs and stimulate business activity, yet the opposite has happened. I guess playing golf and traveling take precedence over the concerns of the citizens.
Politicians are not interested in what is in the best interests of the citizens, but are all about gaming the position they have usurped, based on lies and two-faced actions.
It's ridiculous and it's tearing apart America, while every one plays the blame game, pointing fingers at each opponent sides.
Absolutely no integrity and/or responsibility has been shown by politicians in decades. The political offices are revolving doors, until the citizenship wakes up to hold them accountable.
I have felt for a long time that our government leaders say they want to grow the economy, but their actions have the opposite effect. It takes intelligent compromise to balance the interests of industry/economy and our environment. The fear of making an unpopular decision is absolutely paralyzing. Unfortunately,the repercussions from the BP debacle in the Gulf have a lot to do with it.
