Opinion: No reason to 'drill, baby, drill'

Wednesday's speech from President Obama unveiling his new strategy on offshore drilling, which will keep some sensitive coastal areas open for drilling, hits close to home for me.

I disagree. I don't see any reason that we shouldn't find out what is out there and how much of it. Our dependence on foreign oil is a threat to our national security and anything that helps to lower that dependence as a good thing. I'm not saying that this is a cure all or that it will really do all that much, but there is no reason we should be checking out what we have here that can help us. And using all of our own resources to lower our need for foreign oil. Natural gas, wind, solar, etc. And that creates needed jobs as well. I don't like anything that damages the enviornment either, yet if we fail as a nation, none of that matters. Because whoever runs our country after we fail, certainly will not have a problem exploiting every natural resource we have.

What about the gay sting rays that will be affected by this?
