Protesting and caring about something bigger than yourself accomplishes a lot. Loving this planet is a hobby. Get off the couch and wrap your teeny brain around something bigger than you, like an actual cause.

You'll be crying when these beautiful beaches are destroyed and then you'll be wishing there were people out there who had the b@lls to do something great that affects you also. Just continue being a do-nothing.

I don't cry. Crying is a sign of weakness. I can't be weak while I'm working my a** off to exterminate gangs to REALLY make a difference.

Good job sport! The gang activity here is positively EXPLODING!

Protest that oil people! Link arms and protect our coasts. We're protecting our own investments. No more beaches means no more tourists. No more tourists means decreased state revenue. Do we want our taxes to go throuh the roof? Thanks to offshore drilling, it might happen.

Oh I see you’re one of those people that lives in denial about the fine members of your community. So are you really that clueless?

Believe me, I'm not in denial nor am I clueless about the crime in southwest Florida. I know that it will eventually be an urban armpit stuffed in the crook of Tampa and Miami. I wish I didn't know the things I know and I'm not an ostrich with my head in the sand either. I know that in 10 years, we'll need a green card to get over the state line. I hate that this place isn't what it was 20 years ago. I'm just saying that there are other concerns, especially now, that are worthy of and deserve our attention as well.

This isn’t going to be like ANY other hurricane season we’ve ever seen. It’s going to rain oil on us. Are you ready for that? People are wasting time holding hands on the beach and doing nothing to prepare for the REAL disaster. The beaches will be fine, they can be cleaned, but what of our drinking water and food supply. People get so wrapped up in this yuppie green crap they lose track of reality.

I get it, you're not a tree hugger. They are looking at the big picture and to the future. Someone has to. It's hard for tree huggers to sit on their a$$es and wait. This garbage can't be reversed but joining together may prevent another incident in the future. Pensacola looks like crap. It's not going to rain oil but a storm surge could push contaminated water onshore, into the water and possibly into the potable water. That is what no one is talking about right now.

Oh come on, I'm not talking about living in a tree house, no deodorant and crapping in paper bags! You don't have to be a tree hugger to give 2 sh!ts about the environment. You were probably one of the hundreds in that chain weren't you? You jes frontin'. Can't hide what's inside.

Yeah right, me standing hand in hand with a gaggle of hags with no body’s and no body. Naw not so much. I go deeper in the fight than the front lines, too many people being ignored up front and I’m too good for that so I hit lower and deeper. Do you know any of the science of what is going on with this disaster and how much of a disaster it really is? Well when I said earlier that it will rain oil. IT WILL! Do you know how a hurricane and subsequent tornadoes are born? It will rain on us my friend and even more Sci-Fi and weird there is a possibility (but a very marginal one) that electricity within the storm can even ignite oil and it could feasibly rain FIRE!! Pretty freaky shit huh? OK so the fire thing isn’t something we’re threatened by too much at this time but the math of possibility is being calculated. What’s that? You haven’t heard any of this on the news? Nope, you sure haven’t. Oh, oh then let’s not forget what happens if they can’t stop the flow at all.(Which is also too very possible) Once the well runs dry it will leave a huge void below the sea and the water will now start to backflow into the well, heated and turned into steam pressure building rapidly it will take what seems like mere hours before the explosion and once that happens…no need to worry about this oil thing. If the well runs dry, get in your fastest car take 75N to 10W Houston To 45N 30W 35 N 135 Wichita Ka. 335 to 470, 635, 29 NW 90W and find a place to hide out. DO NOT FLY!!!

Why aren't we talking about this so called methane bubble? Is that sh!t actually possible? Crazy scientists? Those crazy scientists are the only ones who have been honest about this catastrophe from day one. I'll join the "hags" on the beach while I'm grabbing my crotch and giving the finger to those foreign b@stards in the Gulf drilling where they have no business.

Drilling where they have no business..That’s all their business. Here’s a good one, people around here get massive hard-ons when fuel prices drop from 2.85 to 2.83 a gallon, people are so frigging brain washed about paying these obnoxious amounts of money fuel it’s insane. So here we go, Exxon/Mobil rakes in 424 billion dollars in ‘09 4th quarter. 424 billion dollars. What if they only pulled in 212 billion? Would that mean they would be out of business? Hell no it means they would have 212 billion less in their coffers to drool over. BUT..Fuel at the pump would be 1.42 a gallon. There is NO reason at all for fuel to be 2.85 a gallon. And at these astronomical profits these greasy greedy fkrs are cutting corners on maintenance and safety. Well what does America do? They hold hands on the beach. WOW, that’ll show those guys. If America would start this year and forego their summer vacation to the mouse in Orlando or wherever they go and just stay home and NOT use their cats they would send a message. But Americans are fat lazy pigs and the 80’s generation is the worst. EVER. IN HISTORY. They serve their opinions on the windows of their mini vans and think the “MESSAGE” is getting out. They waste so much time on “ME” they have no idea there’s a whole world out there. Try getting those greedy losers to do something. Don’t take a vacation this year, stay home. That’s something that couldn’t be ignored, AAA tracks it and they’d report people are boycotting fuel prices and THAT would be heard. THAT would hurt. Cheaper fuel costs, more money in the taxpayers wallet, more money to spend, that’s stimulus that works. The 80’s “GREED IS GOOD” Well here you have it!!

We don't need fossil fuel. It's scientifically proven. Biofuel is a technology that has been around but dirty politicians are having orgies with oil companies lining their pockets. Therefore we pay at the pump, literally and metaphorically Screw that dumba$$ mouse, people who pay $85 to stand in line for hours behind smelly a$$ foreigners get what they paid for. We'll never see gas prices down under $2.00 again. Especially now.
