It sounds like you understand the reasons people on both sides of the Arizona law have for their positions, and you recognize that some of their behaviors are stupid.  However, I don’t see any hint that you understand the reasons people who would like to continue drilling in the gulf have for their position.  I think any argument that people are being stupid should address the stupider reasons they have (or behaviors they exhibit), rather than simply saying their position itself is stupid.

I speak as a champion of stupidity.  I firmly believe that if we do not allow people to be stupid legally, we do them a great disservice by prohibiting them from learning through the school of hard knocks.  Furthermore, those that violate the prohibition are motivated to hide their reasons and behaviors, which makes fixing any problems they cause that much more difficult.

I respect that.  I do believe to some degree people have to make mistakes to learn from them and therefore have the ability to grow, but it annoys me when they don’t learn from them and grow as is the case in my opinion regarding the oil drilling.  People died, it isn’t safe, it’s not going to be safe, and we have definitely proven that we are cluless as to how to deal with any problem that comes up.  I do see their side that peoples jobs will be lost but I am tired of hearing that excuse for everything.  You know what?  How bout this?  learn a new trade that might not kill you or destroy the environment that you call home.  The problem with some of those people down there is that they believe whatever someone higher up on the totem poll tells them.  they don’t use their own brains enough to say “Wait a minute this isn’t good”  they think collectively as one huge poorly educated brain.  the sad thing is that they are not all poorly educated just miseducated and misguided and most of all lied to.  Making them very, very dangerous.
