British Petroleum has pleaded guilty to a plethora criminal charges for their part of the Deepwater Horizon incident.
With the recent Citizens United ruling declaring corporations people, does this mean our government will/should deny them access to American/Canadian
markets and drilling permits now that this corporation has a criminal record?
Don't use rational logic when it comes to corporations and government.
If they had to treat each other like they treat us they would all be in jail by now... But don't worry, they will have "public hearings" about most
of their criminal acts. Just so the public knows they are really, really sorry about what they did.
I don't know why people ask legal questions about the United States anymore. We have a king who says he can make laws with a crayon and his
fisher-price phone! "Illegal"? we don't do that here anymore. We do reality TV. and you no longer are required to ask permission to enter the
UNited States. just show up. the "authorities" will tell you to "wait there a second" and when they turn they're backs, you just walk away.
Anyway, the tiny little spill they had in the gulf of mexico was no big deal and plus, it was BP. These are the same guys that paid off the UK
government to get the Lockerby Bomber released so they could pick up some leases of the coast of libya. Legal?. When it comes to oil and politicians
there isn't any such thing. After all, our elected lords and ladies have to keep up appearances you know. and it's no big deal. the solar system
only has about 8 yrs left. we should just be having massive keggers every day.
