    Default The Real Truth About Jobs & Oil Spill

    The right would like you to believe that the moritorium has killed jobs is the oil services industry. This is the furtherest from the truth, but who care about the truth.

    I bank many oil services companies that are expanding largely to meet the requirements being now imposed. Onshore drilling is on fire as they continue to develop these scale fields. Yes offshore drilling in the gulf is not happening but everything else is on fire.

    So just for the record, I think someone who has first hand knowledge is a better source than some spin doctor that whats you to believe something that is not true.

    However all of them lie, so pick the liar that will help you the most. If you are unemployeed the guy that whats to extend your benefits is probablly your best choice. If you are farmer or work in the ag sector the guy that wants to expand school lunches. If you work in the defense industry the guy that likes war. Etc. etc....

    Vote you pocket book...don't make your vote on what they say because they all are liars.

    Where is the increased on-shore drilling taking place? Are the Gulf off-shore oil employees being relocated to those locations?

    he be getting a haircut and buying a snow cone, in the gulf region?

    I am sure that the 20,000 laidoff because of the 7 deepwater rigs that were moved to other coutries can rest easily knowing Sambo has thier back. No one knows when the other 24 deepwater rigs will go back to work because no new permits are being issued.

    And, just in case you haven't looked, shallow water drilling permits are being held up too creating more loss of jobs!

    Then again, gasoline is upwards of $2.70 per gallon at the pump and getting ready to go over $3. per gallon thanks to the Democrats!

    Right here in Pennsylvania. Everywhere you look there are drilling rigs, pipe farms, waste-water trucks.......

    Sambo knows NOT what he talks about!

    On shore drilling is mostly for natural gas. Production for on-shore producing gasoline is extremely limited and too costly. Offshore is where gasoline gets produced in quantity in this country outside of Alaska.

    Many of those laid-off gulf employees have had to leave thier families and go to where drilling is and that is Saudi Arabia. Sambo would rather feather the nest of the Saudi's than of Americans!

    .
    If I understand your question, you are asking what is happening to the barbers and snow cone sellers if the off-shore guys are not working. My point is the fabricators, engineers, mechinist, etc. have added work because of this, so they are creating jobs because of the disaster that were not there before the spill. So barbers are cutting fabricators hair now.

    What I said is the service industry is on fire meeting the new demands. I never said that roughnecks were not out of work. My point is the new requirements are making more jobs than were lost. I sure though that a roughneck can go work in a fab shop if they desire.

    What difference does it make if they are drilling for gas or oil. They are still drilling and need pipe, frac sand, pump trucks, water disposal, etc......bottom line jobs
