    “From time to time, there are going to be things that occur that are acts of God that cannot be prevented,” Perry said

    This is a true statement…..when it comes to NATURAL disasters, i.e earthquakes, storms, things that happen NATURALLY. that statement definitely does not apply to oil rigs exploding because a company was too cheap to take the precautions necessary…..

    Thank you for all your of insightful comments.

    Yes, as the “Drill baby, drill” crowd realize the BP disaster may curtail plans to expand offshore drilling, we will be hearing more boneheaded comments, like those of Rick Perry’s.

    Your welcome. I love this site. All of the writers (including you) seem to have their heads on straight. Unlike a lot of the country these days, unfortunately.

    Just consider the oil leak a case of ‘Friendly Fire’. You kill our troops in Iraq & Afghanistan & we pollute your shores. By the way, we won’t be releasing the videos as we have to protect our personnel.
