Simple question. British Petroleum is responsible for one of the worst economic and ecological disasters in US History. Not only that but they've
lied, wasted time, pissed on coastal communities, and failed to clean up their mess. Why the hell is the government bending over and grabbing their
ankles for this bull# corporation? The way the government has been completely hands off with BP and this entire situation has been deplorable. No
fines, no arrests, no nothing.
I didn't like the Obama Administration before but now he has shredded any semblance of competence or confidence I had for him. Originally I thought
his renewed emphasis on the Drug War and troop surge in Afghanistan was the biggest slap in the face. However this has been absolutely appalling. So
you've managed to destroy the economy of several states and put the lives of literally hundreds of thousands of people at risk. I guess it was nice
of him to show up and make a pretty speech. Why is the government taking five months of my money in taxes and constantly threatening to take my
freedoms away when they can't even do something simple like regulate off-shore drilling or prosecute criminals.
I go out and shoot someone dead, I go to jail. I go out and rob someone blind, I go to jail. I go out and dump trash and tear up someone's property,
I go to jail. A house contractor builds a house that collapses and kills people, he goes to jail. BP manages a double digit body count, destroys the
economy of several southern states, and manages the worst ecological disaster in history, they get a tax-funded bail-out. If Islamists had done this,
nuclear bombs would've already fallen on Mecca. However since it's a multi-national corporation, our government is literally tripping over
themselves to blow BP. #ing ridiculous.
Obama is nothing but the Black Bush. I hate this country.
