maybe now we can reconsider offshore drilling

well, i think now we can put to bed the notion that offshore oil rigs are safe. perhaps president obama might reconsider opening the gulf to new offshore drilling. this is not a minor spill with a limited amount of oil. this is a catastrophic event, spewing thousands of gallons of oil into the gulf of mexico, threatening the delicate ecosystem of our already fragile wetlands. we have the technology to free ourselves from this oil addiction but we continue to be held hostage to oil lobbyists. it has to start with the american people demanding an alternative to oil. we have to put the fear of god into washington. they have to be more afraid of us and our voting power than they are of the power that big oil wields. we can change our country's energy policy but we have to act now! we have to act together.
