I listened to a couple of folks this morning on TV14 and was so frustrated. I am not an activist and I do care about our waters BUT we need employment and this country needs to support itself with oil and cutoff reliance on other countries. I personally do not think the tourists will care one way or the other. Americans need to stand up and take care of ourselves for a change. These people that are against it obviously are fully employed and have enough money to keep paying the higher gas prices along with all the other high priced needs a family requires. I am not an Obama supporter but I was extremely pleased about this. It is about time.
"oil could pollute North Carolina's fragile ecosystem" Is that different than all the septic systems that dump into our creeks?
