10 days ago, one solution to the oil clean up was floated on Redstate (pun intented). I quote from my own post:
Take several existing booms in the field and surround the areas with the largest oil flows coming to the surface. Park a BP Suezmax or larger Oil Tanker off to the side of the boom and run a hose with a skimming float on one end and the other end into one of the Tanker’s oil holds…. Start pumping oil and sea water from the boomed area into the tank. Use another hose to pump sea water from the bottom of the tank back into the boomed area. Some estimate between 3,600 and 5,000 barrels of oil are flowing into the Gulf each day. With several pumps, they can pump 20,000 barrels of skimmed oil and sea water into the oil tanker…

Let’s make one thing clear: | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Marco Rubio’s concession speech tonight did not get full air time on CNN, but they showed the most important part. Listen to Senator Rubio humbly explain his loss: “I’m disappointed with tonight. I want you to understand, I want you to understand something. Our disappointment tonight is not on you, it’s on me.

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES It sure seems that way. Christie is reportedly heading home to New Jersey to re-evaluate his candidacy. He was very clearly a dog backed into a corner in the New Hampshire debate, and he attacked who he saw as the biggest threat on the way to being the “Establishment” candidate – Marco Rubio. However, the strategy did not work, | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Sadly, it appears that New Hampshire may have muddied the GOP field, rather than clarifying it. Even though Kasich and Jeb do not have obvious paths forward to the nomination, they are going to convince themselves that they do, at least through Super Tuesday – and they will probably find donors who will indulge that belief. Somewhere, Donald Trump | Read More »
