WOW...Well, it's like this. You drive a car. you buy gas at BP. They have a spill.
You STOP buying gas at BP? WTF... Really, you are part of the problem and now you're bailing?
To hell with the little guy that owns the franchise?
I don't agree that TAXPAYERS should pay, as I currently ride a BIKE and pay taxes,
but then again I DO ride the CTA (Chicago transit buses and trains)
and the cars I have owned were ridiculous 70's Chevys and Cadilacs,
and probably will again...and I do fly in airplanes...
If you're part of the problem then be part of the solution...
I feel about this like I did when 911 happened, like, I need to move because I'm guilty by association just by living in this country...I had just
got back from Europe, thankfully the dollar was still stronger than the new Euro and they didn't hate us QUITE as much as now...not that they are
100% innocent either, but I saw 2 gas stations in two weeks there and most roads in the cities couldn't fit a stupid SUV down them let alone 2 cars
at once, and the few cars I did see were TINY, and when they ran into each other on those streets and had to back up they didn't freak out because
their automobile is not a penis attachment that they live in with a 15 inch speaker in the back or a DVD system so you don't have to talk to the kids
in the 20 minutes it takes to get to the grocery store, it's a necessity because you commute and you got an amazing place for your family that you
can't get to by train.
That's why they don't have a drinking age in most of Europe. People aren't as abusive of their commodities and have self-control.
Unless you're rich and have a chauffer and fleets of cars and planes, and then yea, pay up already.
Really, you should be scrubbing ducks with Dawn. Again.
