Government Goes After BP


It appears that 8 months after the start of the oil spill in the Gulf, the administration is going after BP. How this plays out is anyones guess. Obviously, the region, its economy and the people that live on the coast have suffered. They have lost their business, their tourism and for many, their way of life. The effects of the spill are still not fully know and it could be years before all the damage is understood.

What I want to know is what is the plan from here? Do we push ahead with drilling in the region or do we abandon it altogether? Do we try and find out what oversight was lacking and who did not meet their responsibilities or do we say the heck with it and give up?

With projects of this size and complexity, there are risks and they need to be evaluated. With oil creeping back towards $100 a barrel and the economy still teetering on a ledge, can we abandon domestic production? Do we want to run off producers and exploration outfits to other countries who would be happy to have them? Do we really want to depend even more on foreign sources of oil? I think these questions should be asked and we need to be careful how we proceed. We need to hold those who did not follow the regulations and safety guidelines responsible, but lets not destroy and industry and put our national security at risk. Lets not make the problem worse by punishing everyone in the industry for the acts of a few.

Let face it: picking up the designer replica handbag that worth your money could be a harrowing experience.louis vuitton bag , This is proven true with the deluge of online designer handbag stores that sell authentic, second-hand authentic, or replica creations.moncler ,
So what are the best steps to take when planning to purchase your Louis Vuitton or Chanel bag online? Here are some easy, practical tips:
1.mbt masai , Choose a web site that presents handbag images in multiple angles.moncler jackets ,
Never settle for web sites that feature mediocre product photos. Choose one that presents its designer replica handbags in front, back, side, and inside photos. Photos of actual handbags are better than images lifted from the official web sites of LV, Chanel, Gucci, and other designer brands.
Look at the actual hardware, top closure, and other details such as buckles, tassels, embroidered logos, etc. Check for honesty - match these images with the product descriptions.
2. Make sure that the materials of the replica bag are equal to those of the authentic ones.
High-quality designer knockoffs should offer the same fabric and materials used in the original bags. If the original Chanel chain bag is made of genuine calfskin leather, you should look for the same in its replica version.
3. Check for serial numbers and proper tags.
Even replica bags should come with authenticity cards and markings to fully eplicate?the designer bag experience. Check for brand engraving in buttons, plates, and other features.
4. Ensure quality craftsmanship.
What better way to do this step than using an expert eye? Ask for the help of a friend or a loved one who is familiar with authentic brands. If no one is available to do this, do further research online. Again, scrutinize brand labels, materials, and bag details closely. Don be afraid to ask customer service if you have any questions, or if you spotted any discrepancies between images and product descriptions.
5. Ensure that brand advertising is legitimate.
This tip is much like the summary of all the previous tips. Your designer replica handbag should be exactly how they are described to you. Louis Vuitton replica handbags, for instance, should be made of leather that oxidizes into a honey brown color.
The best way to shop for bags online is to keep an open eye and an open mind. Go for reputable sellers that offer not only high-quality products, but also a good ordering system, quick and reliable shipping, and 24/7 customer service. A good money-back guarantee is also a must.
