Yay another BP band-waggon thread! Woo
In all seriousness just get over it. What has happened is awful but nothing will change. BP is paying for the cleanup and it will take time. Forging these pathetic personal vendettas and "boycotts" is just embarrassing. Quite frankly the way in which the government has acted has been far worse.

Great display of wealth envy.
But no, they are by far not rich, they work 7 days a week in their little station with two pumps, they have a cafe where they make homemade food and sell it at the gas station. Their kids went to public schools, I can assure you.
The point being, it will be small families in small areas like this that boycotting would hurt. There are all of 4 gas stations in the area. Only a portion of what they sell is gas.
So, it is okay to destroy a few American lives to prove a point? Because you wrongly decided they were rich, sent their kids to private schools? Really?
This is the real example of what's wrong in todays world, wealth envy. If I can't have it, no one should. If they have "too much", take it from them, it just means they are greedy, and I am needy, so send it my way. They took food from my mouth anyway. Right?
Except, they worked to own that franchise.

I am so angry at BP along with most everyone else! The government should kick BP out of the USA and find new suppliers for the BP station owners.. like Shell or Cheveron. This would protect the station owners from boycott and punish BP for their careless acts! What do you think of the idea?
Edit: Reworded post.. people not getting I want to protect the station owners from boycott.
