In a national survey of 522 adults, on a scale of 0 to 10, the average show of support was 6.3 when asked if the government should allow offshore drilling.
The poll was conducted by the market research company TRC.
Not surprising, the response was higher among Republicans, 7.8, compared to 5.4 for Democrats.
Zero indicated complete disagreement and 10 reflected complete agreement.
The average response was 6.7 when those surveyed were asked if offshore drilling was critical for America
Simple answer... most of us do not use the EXCEPTION to define the RULE.

ME? I'm ready to go back to living in a little log cabin on the prairie in order to save, conserve, and protect the Earth from this continued rape and abuse of the planet.
Gawd, how bonehead stupid can people be? Yup, this whole damn thing needs to blow up in everyone's face in order to wake them out of their drunken party down good time stupor. Man, is "most Americans" high on crack or what? What the hell is wrong with people today. What will it take, anyhow, to wake these idiots up?
Pray with me that this becomes sufficiently worse enough to cause everyone to change their earth trashing ways. Curse these planet trashers.
