Face it, Jindahl is an asshole who wants to score political points and nothing more. Guess what? Those barrier islands you keep touting are pretty eroded anyway. A few weeks of dredging doesnt make much difference. The barrier islands are not going to save us this hurricane season;...

Seems to me like Bobby is using the oil spill for nothing more than scoring political points. Like that ridiculous stance of his regarding volcano monitoring, Bobby seems to think that potential natural disasters ain't shit. Oh shut up. You dont have any idea what you're talking about....

Cavuto was the only one willing and knowledgeable enough to call him out on his BS.

For some reason I remember from law school there were cases like this - usually where smog goes from one state to another, but I don't remember what the outcome was. Yes, I believe so. I think you are right that the accident situs usually needs to be in the state, but the actual economic damage is...

I think you mean 100 billion dollar question Anyway, I keep saying this over and over- those claims can be brought under...
