They're making a big deal about that "static kill" of the well in the Gulf. And, I supposed that, if true, it's good news.
But, I have to ask...
In order to kill this well -- you know, that well that's been spewing oil for months -- they ran a big hose to handle lots of pressure of mud and concrete.
That means that they could hook up a long hose that would handle lots of heavy material under pressure.
So, why didn't they just put an empty hose and let the oil flow up in a controlled manner, and put the oil into, like, tankers and something?
If you're smart enough to understand all this, please explain it to me.
Unless, of course, you voted for Obama. If you did that, I don't trust your brain. It's defective. And you have nothing useful to say.
