this is what they are building in Fouchon correct???

I'd like to know why the Obama administration let this happen and THEN do absolutely nothing to help stop it. Heads should roll over this royal Obama screw up.

Pretty much guarantee the last occupant of the White House, ( a former oil man) would have had his guys involved, from the minute the story broke.

Lets just hope that the engineers and not the politicians, are making the decisions now.

The news said that oil boom was going to be put across from deer island to the beach on both sides. and I would think that manpower would be stretched with all the other areas closed. So I think it will be called off.

Just had the first sign of things to come.......Guy just called and said to hold up on putting a pair of new Yamaha's on his fishing boat. We do a lot of repair and re-power on salt water fishing boats. we are located about 30 miles North of the Coast. This is not going to be good.
