Ticking Time Bomb

Jeffery appraises how dangerous drilling the Gulf can be, especially when all market and government regulations fail.

And I'm still not seeing any positive policy alternatives from the right.

I have a suggestion that is totally foreign to the left, enforce the laws and regulations. Whether it's voter intimidation, illegal immigration, drilling regulations or what have you, lefties and liberals don't seem to understand enforcing laws.

I don't think that's a problem found solely on the left, after what we saw during the previous 8 or so years...

You're absolutely correct.

It's a pithy problem. Zero tolerance leads to complete stupidity in many circumstances. Mandatory enforcement would be more destructive than mandatory sentencing. Officials need to be able to exercise reasonable discretion, but near complete lack of enforcement, like we have in immigration, is unacceptable as is the current voter intimidation and, apparently, drilling regulations enforcement.
