Can you imagine how fast BP would scramble if the US stated BP is out. All rights and claims they have to the Gulf are void because of breach of
contract, and blatant lies to the US people and lying under oath to Congress. We are bringing in ConocoPhillips or Exxon to take over control of the
It might get BP's head out of their butt's before it is kicked. I'm not advocating that the Government run the show in the same way you wouldn't
expect the coach of the Yankee's to go in and play second base when the second baseman doesn't do his job.
No. it's time to trade for a new second baseman. Put them in and let them have at it. The lawyers can cry all they want in court, but an Executive
Order in the time of a national crisis could certainly remove certain people who have consistently screwed up and then lied about it from the playing
Stop this, clean it up, and then let the chips fall where they may.
As for the forest fire analogy, the firefighters DO know what they are doing. However, there has been a lot of debate and discussion over the years
among the higher ups about whether to let it burn, or try to put it out immediately. If they do use the let it burn technique..which they have..and
then the fire grows and rages out of control towards a city then it hits the fan and every scrambles to get it under control before it ravages a
Ask the people in Southern Cali about that. The fire fighters on the scene aren't the ones who's heads are on the chopping block then. It's the
policy makers. They are the ones who need to be replaced.
I didn't advocate anyone removing any equipment from the scene because it would take too long to get all new equipment in there. I'm saying get the
retarded managers out of there, and replace them with someone who while might only have the same chance at stopping this, will at least be more open
It's the openness that I have the most problem with. If BP had come forward and told the people they had screwed up, there was going to be a hell of
a leak, and the Gulf would probably take a huge hit and told them within the first days of this disaster, and then followed up with keeping the people
informed then it might be different. And then let the media into the safe areas and allowed to do flyovers and allowed them to present the true story
to the people, then it might be different. Heads would still roll, but it might be easier to stomach.
Instead this has become a huge cover up in order to protect BP's image and the image of the oil industry in general. What the people with their heads
up their asses still haven't realized is they are actually making their image worse. Not better.
