    The way they would get involved is if the prez called the general in command of the corps and said do this starting right now or you're fired. He has the power to do that, but apparently not the inclination.

    Hahaha, Well Peak we have a long history of not liking each other much.But I have to say you are right on on every point that you made.Thank you for telling it JUST LIKE IT IS.I don't think there is anyone that likes what has happened with the spill and that it will most likely have a devastating effect for many years and I feel for everyone in the gulf this has and will change there lives forever.

    The experience we have here in NJ with ACOE is that they tend to bill themselves as the "experts" and all those with limited knowledge depend on their "science " to determine if a project should go through. Like most on here that have experienced beach replenishment, the sand just goes away with a big storm, but eventually comes back. One guy actually said "that if we don't replenish the beaches they will not be there". Actually the beach will still exist, just further west. (on the east coast anyway). Another funny thing is that they think that pumping sand onto the beaches will slow down sea level rise. Not sure what science they are basing that on, but this is the type of BS that make them the laughing stock of coastal environmentalists.
    And not funny in the HAHa kind of way either.

    Yes, their efforts are often misguided. My point is only that they do have the ability to move sand to specific locations and in this case that seems like a pretty good idea.

    To Deepsouth's point, our commander-in-chief hasn't ordered it, yet.
