So......what do you think of them? And other large greed-driven corporations like them?

I think they're doing fairly well in this crisis. They actually have the stuff to step up and fix their mistakes.

I just know that if I was an adult in the workforce with a car, I would happily fill up at their gas stations. I laugh at all the idiots who think boycott is the answer. Rolling Eyes

Well they did choose to fail and go around safety measures to save money.

Very true, but they are the ones spending money to get the problem fixed.

...sortof. True they are spending money, but they also keep denying the blame, and keep pointing fingers. They also arn't doing all that they could, yet. They have huge financial resources, but are slow to utalize them to their full potential.

No-one is fully to blame. BP was lazy in not installing a shut-off valve, and the government was lazy in letting that pass...

True true, it's sad though, that it takes an accident to make people wake up.

Oh, great. I predict Bush and Cheney had a hand in this. Maybe they even planted the explosives on the pipeline itself! Oh no! Just like they planted bombs in the World Trade Center! Well Charlie Sheen says so so it must be true! So does Keith Olbermann!

he he he


Obama keeps telling us about all the nothing he's going to do about this. What I love about this spill (and I don't mean that the way you might think, I hate that this happened at all) is that it will show that Obama is not perfect, that he can't talk, or in his case, gaffe his way out of every situation that arises before him. And let's be honest, the left's collective finger was pointed at BP from the very beginning, so if BP feels just a little threatened with their government not exactly on their side, I wouldn't blame them.

Now BP gets a hurricane/big storm in the gulf and if it gets to the oil they get to have even more fun.

Right... because James Cameron knows how to plug the hole a lot more than they do. Wink

Funny video... "Chewbakker."

"Get some of those aliens from Avatar to help plug the hole. They are blue, and they are very tall.

Yes, they are very tall."

I love British accents. So much so that I am making a Soap accent for myself. I already have the Ghost accent down pat.

Totally! I'm not really sure where these ideas are coming from, but they're all totally nuts! What I wonder is, why didn't they just install an emergency shut-off valve to begin with? scratch

Yea, and why did the government let them get away with not installing one?

Also, BP put a cap on the leak, but we won't find out till later today if it actually stopped it. Start praying!
