I gave the star for your posts. But... Violence doesnt solve anything. Uncooperation is the answer really. They are prepared for martial law or killing large number of you guys. But they arent prepared for uncooperation. Start a movement of uncooperation, you can bring the government to its toes.

I am sick of court proceedings that go nowhere, lies spewed, and the rich getting to go do whatever, leaving US to clean up the mess, foot the bill, and we're supposed to just be fed anything these fools tell us.



You will have to wait until Obama flips the internet kill switch.

ROTFLMAO!!

HA!!

No one.. and I mean *no one* has *ever* accused me of being a "bleeding heart liberal."

Though, I certainly I've never engaged in the advocating of murder and or lynching.

Eh, the tears are streaming down my face I'm laughing so hard.

The reason why the wold's gone to hell is moist smacks like you, ya know? *whine* We should be peaceful. *whine* Violence doesnt solve anything. *whine* They just need a hug!

I was going to MOVE to fla, and this stunt has assured I cant- I am not going to be rained on by toxic materials, have my well poisoned, and not be able to even ENJOY the ocean! I am sick of these rich, *snipsnipsnipsnipsnipsnip* taking what little I *can* enjoy!

BP Tries to Clarify Who Is in Charge
By LIZ ROBBINS
Published: June 19, 2010


BP officials scrambled on Saturday to say that Tony Hayward, their embattled chief executive, was still in charge of all BP operations in spite of comments from the company’s chairman the day before indicating that Mr. Hayward was relinquishing his duties in the Gulf of Mexico.

Ms. Williams was clarifying the comments made on Friday by the chairman of the board of BP, Carl-Henric Svanberg, who told the British television network Sky News that Mr. Dudley would “now” be handing over day-to-day operations in the gulf.

What Mr. Svanberg meant, Ms. Williams said, is that “there would be a transition over to Bob over a period of time.”

“Obviously,” she said, “Tony’s main priority remains overseeing all BP operations. Over all, there will be some responsibilities handed over, but Tony will remain in full control until we have stopped the leak.”

So there you have it, no one knows who's is in charge.

in reality tony has absolutely no more power in bp.

the other fluff about a slow transition to bob or what tony is in charge of now is all about pr/image/public perception. i guess svanberg wasnt briefed by his pr team and just told it like it was...

if bp announces a replacement too early before the spill is completely stopped, the new guy bob may inherit tonys bad public perception and will have dirt on his hands from the get go which he certainly does not want...

and so their pr team is spinning and saying tony is "still in charge"...

Uncooperation is the answer really.


I cant get much more uncooperative, really- I gave up my car, I walk, and take the bus where walking simply isnt an option. I am trying to cut use of (new) plastics as far down as I can (I like to do scale models, so guess where that leaves me- yup. In a lurch.) My power consumption is at the minimum I can deal with. I basically live right on the brink of being a Neanderthal. I do the models because if I didn't, I'd be in an alley somewhere with a bottle under one arm, and a needle in the other.

Everything I enjoy- a beach trip to fla, seafood... Chinese buffet was an experience I'd rather not repeat... trying to NOT eat seafood... I have so little to enjoy, and each day I wake up, MORE is taken from me. What is done about it? Honestly? NOT A DAMNED THING. We're all headed for a really bad life of slavery if this keeps up.

Next time you try an insult- get an adult to help you.

Did it ever occur to you- that I am just one loud screaming, angry voice in a sea of millions? I don't 'speak' for anyone else, but anyone with 2 braincells knows I voice what others are thinking, provided they aren't wet behind the ears and probably working for someone....

So go have a swim in the gulf. Catch some fish. I'll stand by with the camera when you turn colors and mutate into Rush Limbaugh.

I wonder if he would have shown up then?

Ah, see, you have not the first clue.

I live ~5 miles from the coast.

My office is < 1/4 of a mile from the coast.

I work in an industry that will be severely crippled by this incident and for a company that very well may not survive it.

On a more speculative point: I easily imagine my *son* is *older* than you so I think that pretty much qualifies me as an "adult."

I choose to face crisis situations with a cold hard logical mind. One that even refuses to admit my own emotional turmoil... let alone someone else's less than logical emotional tirades.

"Taking a break" during a catastrophe is such bad taste...

He so desperately wanted his old life back, he obviously doesn't care one bit. I don't understand how you can just go out and have a good time after creating the largest environmental catastrophe in the history of the world. My goodness...

These people should be serving prison time for neglect and carelessness, and to top it all off, indifference. I want to grab this man and just shake him!

To divert attention away from Obama's own disregard for what's happening in the Gulf. And as far as I've heard, Obama hasn't been relieved of his duties, has he?


Looks like Obama went golfing again today. Hmmm.

Obama hits golf course with Biden on another hot, humid weekend


President Barack Obama hit the golf course Saturday with Vice President Joe Biden.

The White House pool report noted that Obama left at about 1 p.m. for the course at Andrews Air Force base, and his golfing parters included White House Trip Director Marvin Nicholson and David Katz, the energy efficiency campaign manager at the Department of Energy.


Glad to see he's on the job.

My thread got closed but i didnt see yours so its my fault...

Anyway just wanted to add that it's pretty bad of him to do this... he should be at the Gulf cleaning this mess up... he and the rest of the CEO's at the top... instead you have the underpaid and volunteer's cleaning it up.

Not good at all.

flagged.

Maybe... if it's his first day off since the disaster... i suppose he needs a little relax time and sleep but i'm hoping he gets back out there asap.... coz this thing is a massive disaster which has no end in sight....

Revolutions are notoriously difficult to steer and target correctly.

The biggest Problem is that in Americas case, revolution would mean civil war, as different groupings would revolt against different supposed enemies.

In cleartext, you need concensus of some form for a revolution. America, and the world of course, lack a common concensus.



Anyway just wanted to add that it's pretty bad of him to do this... he should be at the Gulf cleaning this mess up


Every waking minute? How would he stay rested enough to make these weighty cleanup decisions?

And as someone has already mentioned, Tony has nothing more to do with the cleanup.

This is the first day off Tony Hayward has reportedly taken since the crisis began. It's apparently the first day he has had any quality time with his family in over a month.

How many times has Obama had a "day off"? I notice he is golfing...

How many times a month does Obama see his wife and kids?

Seems somewhat hypocritical, if you ask me..

An American drilling firm mucks up the cement plugs.

Another American drilling firm, with a poor safety record in Europe, is running the rig that exploded.

An American BP executive apparently gave some controversial orders that led to the explosion.

American Government oversight of drilling operations everywhere seems to have been severely lacking in the first place..

Obama himself mucked about for weeks after the explosion himself, despite the considerable resources at his disposal, with much fannying around about it being BP's responsibility. In the UK, everyone and anyone would have mucked in led by the Government, it being of such national inportance. Can't have been that high on Obama's agenda then or even now.

But it is Tony Haywards fault and he should personally swim down to the leaking pipe and fix it with his bare hands?

After all, with all this BP bashing going on, lets not forget Piper Alpha, shall we? Ran by a US firm called Occidental Petroleum (Transocean were involved there too....funny that) which even now has a very shoddy safety record and has many pending lawsuits to it's name.

Did we see a massive outpouring of anti-US sentiment from the British?

No..

Grow up.
