For me, this doesn't really bother me.
However -- I'm pretty much of the opinion that "BP doesn't give a crap" and their constant calculation is; "What is the least we need to pay for
Dog and Pony to get out of this PR nightmare and go back to screwing the environment where nobody is watching?" They've been doing this for decades
all around the world and they've got wells in Africa that have been bleeding and killing everyone around for 30 years.
It's only an ISSUE because people NEED TO COMPREHEND the phony crocodile tears and the FACT that these oil barons spend more on "green TV ads" than
they do on alternative energy or protecting the environment.
Hiring some shill on TV and spending money on ads for MSNBC and Fox is a far better use of funds than R&D to find ways to plug wells in the deep
ocean. And what does it cost to hire about a 1000 bloggers to make it look like anyone saying the "natural leaks" are really oil coming up from a
destroyed pipe miles in the earth is a whack job?
It doesn't matter what the atrocity -- there seems to be a carnival of bloggers who are for toxic waste, are PRO-Vatican in terms of molesting deaf
kids, are pro "end of the earth" in regards to NOT getting off Carbon based fuels. I'm sure if the Nuremberg trials were held today, there would be
a bunch of people on every blog going; "This nonsense only happened to the worst of the worst and it was merely a mistake that people took the wrong
door to the furnace instead of the showers -- these things happen..."
That a corporation edited a photo so that it looked GOOD for the ads -- that's not a story. But when these things end up as photos in the press,
it's basically corporations phoning in the story and paying the press for what they say -- just as how everything else happens in this country
And that war on drugs, and invasion of Afghanistan -- that's because someone CARES. Right? The same companies that import lead painted toys to your
kids to make a few more bucks are the same companies everyone depends upon to do the right thing when nobody is looking. And those mutant additives in
your steak.... yeah, sure, we have an expensive war on drugs and around the planet because someone CARES about our health.
