I think it has more to do along the lines of not creating public panic, because,as was posted before, when you are being sued, you have every right to
info that can be used against you.
BP will get it, the public will not.
It seems like a face saving move by Jindal's part towards corporate America. To prove he can play ball. Political posturing, if you will. The tough
talk is just a bold faced lie to placate the masses. You can basically term it damage control. Jindal is merely earning his future paycheck, while
keeping the masses in check.
My opinion is that they need to pass legislation to punish this kind of situation. They can do anything when they make the laws. If you have the
money, it can all be taken away, unless you are at the top and you dictate the rules, ie legislation.
Most states are in their legislative session right now. All gulf states should consider BP and Halliburton and TransOcean a literal cashcow right now.
There definitely will be repercussions,yet the systemic outrage should be able to overcome that.
Government is not about transparency. They make it difficult to discover information. When you have a vested interest, which all residents do, you
have every single right to that info. But, making it hard to get that info discourages most people from discovering the truth. Which they obviously
want to hide.
Its sad that Jindal is literally saving the average person from knowing whether or not they have any rights vs. BP. I think thats what it boils down
to. LA gov doing exactly the opposite of what he says. Shocking? Not anymore.
