Well another of antar's good intentions thrown to the dogs of Ats. Why dont we just move this one to bts as well people? It has become apparent that the celebrity status has once again become the topic and not the real reason for this thread which is the possibility of something being done about this horrific political disaster finding the msm and the public eye through celebrity personalities as the scientists and researchers, standalone reporters and numerous individuals who are no names have been shoved to the Pitts of msm much like the bts chitchat?

We need media attention and solutions here people and time is running out just as BP is from this monumental disaster.

It does not matter who is coming forward to bring it to the public but when celebrities stand united for a common cause it does tend to have a more profound affect on enlightening the general public.

Again I ask, who are you people in this thread? You are not anything representative of ats or it's founding and respected members!

Trash this thread if you must but when the SHTF on the BP situation then remember it could have had solid solutions if the political influence had not controlled the spill instead of solid contributors to the other spectrum of the disaster.

I think the people responsible for the explosion and spill are already dead at the bottom of the ocean , or about to file lawsuits for the ones that survived the explosion .

So, Brad. If someone murdered one or more of your adaopted children in cold blood, you would rather that person spend the rest of their life in prison but spill some oil in the Gulf and let's kill em all!!!

Frikin Moron! Typical limosine liberal moonbat.

Hmmm - so after numerous wars started by the US, with the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people over the years, primarily to be able to control the worlds oil supply, an accident occurs in a deep drilling operation, oil that's being drilled to satisfy the needs of one of the most oil hungry countries in the world - the US, but as the accident happened on a British owned company's rig, mediocre US actors want to put the people to death for it!!!!

What???? Has America forgotten about the massive amounts of pollution they have caused over the decades? The number of people arbitrarily put to death for the sake of oil!

I have seriously never heard so much guff in all my time, I really can't believe that there are some people on here who not only agree with Brad Pitt, but are actually hero-worshipping him for saying he wants to kill the people responsible for getting his oil so that he can fly round the world with his family to their numerous homes across the globe.

Unfknbelievable!

Sorry I didn't realise that you were the authority when it comes to how ATS and their subscribers should be.

Back to the topic in hand, Brad is just another celebrity using a disaster so to raise their profile with the public. If he is so whimsical with his morals on a subject such as the death penalty then I have no time to listen to anything the man says.

Even if what you just said is true, he is entitled to his opinion, which because of his status, is valued or vilified.

What saddens me, is that people will take his words to heart, rather than John Q. Public, who lives on the gulf coast.

Here's an idea - all of you who are attacking BP - stop using oil! And really not just driving cars, flying etc, but the majority of the food you eat, heating, lighting for your homes, even the clothes on your back - oil played a part at some stage of the production.

hey one good things, there will be no more TV, movies etc so we wont have to put up with anymore excruiciating brangelina (or whatever they're called!) blabbing their mouths off about stuff they mostly know nothing about (oh and to the person ranting on about them supporting the people in New Orleans - they haven't actually spent any of their own money, the plan was to build 150 yes 150 houses from donations and government aid, not from their own pockets - and they never actually lived in the 3'5 mil mansion, cos Ange got pregnant and they went and bought a house in France, where they lived for sometime, but like I said in my previous post they have houses all over the world and they regularly trot round them with their kids...

So Mr Pitts opinion is really not worth a jot...

I can understand your anger at the policies of the US and can sense your thrill at the thought of us experiencing the woes that the rest of the world experiences.

The thing is in my oppinion, we are not a seperate set of Nations and continents and what affects one eventually effects the rest.

If this disaster is the unsumountable delema that some experts are saying it is, then the more it becomes International news the better off we all will be.

This will have great consequences for all of humainty if it continues to be supported by the propaganda machine.

I love Scottland btw.

Well perhaps he should think before he speaks, maybe speaking on their behalf would be a better idea rather than spouting stupid nonsense about killing people....

And I was reading an article about the number of compensation claims BP have had already, one from someone 1500 miles away who claims that "it makes her literally sick behind her knees (or something like that) at the thouught of animals suffering" When people submit nonsense claims like that it will be difficult to sort through the rubbish to get to those who are in genuine need.

Perhaps Brad and Ange could help out with some financial assistance to those who have lost financially

Thanks for the Scotland compliment, we have lost a great number of people in rig accidents over the years and we don't get to see a penny of the oil revenues!

But believe me I'm far from thrilled at the prospect of America being polluted in this way, quite the oposite, I suppose I'm just fed up the the current hypocrisy - would Brad have been calling for the death penalty if it was a US comapny who may well have had a hand in financing his next movie? Somehow doubt it...

I dont know I think its more about the environmental disaster than any one company or people.

It will not happen so even if everyone in the world shouts out from the rooftops that we demand heads for this it is far more complicated than that.

Unfortunately the only way to chop heads in today's society is to sue the pants off of them, but then they always have ways of getting even richer in the process and leave the pockets of the ordinary person more broke.

I have to say i personally dont like the comment either and think it was inappropriate, but it did make major headlines when it seemed the push for truth on the BP spill was waning.

A bit off topic, but, while I could not find a specific article linking to donations from Mr. Pitt, and Ms. Jolie in regards to this oil disaster, they do contribute and give back to communities and organizations by way of millions of dollars.

It's their money, and they are entitled to spend it as they see fit, globe trotting or not.

They do give, and give, and give.....Perhaps not to what you deem worthy, but this couple is by no means stingy with their money!

www.inquisitr.com... 8m-charity-donation/


According to The Hollywood Reporter, which has received a copy of the 2008 tax return for the charity, the Jolie-Pitt Foundation banked $13 million in 2008 and over half was given back to good causes.


There are rumors of him making a movie about the spill. Who's to say some of the proceeds, if he does, won't end up as donations to victims?

Hmm...I can't even find an aritcle in the OP's link that even mentions Brad Pitt!




Though almost all politicians are great actors, real actors shouldn't be involved in politics. Look at Arnold Schwarzenegger for example.


You said it! I live in Cali, and I wish the Terminator would go back to Hollywood where he belongs!

Yeah I had friends who lost family on Piper Alpha and I live and work in the oil industry here so I see 1st hand the safety improvements that came from the Piper Alpha tragedy.

I'm hoping a smilair inquiry into the GOM disaster will see a change of regulation in safety for the oil industry in the U.S as it did for the safety of the industry in Scotland.

lol stop acting like a child. We do have our own military they're called the British Military. And please, America wouldn't be who they are today without the Scottish, every time i'm in the U.S about a 1/3 of the people I have talked to have some Scottish ancestory and a lot of your famous battles included Scottish born Americans.

But you're just a troll so I'll stop feeding now.

I was really on the fence in considering if the BP execs should face the death-penalty for their attempted destruction of a good part of the world's ecosytem but #! If Brad Pitt's on board, I know I don't want to be far behind!
