    Yes, of course! Why didn’t I see it before?! Barack Obama is obviously in the pockets of the oil companies! That explains everything. Why BP chose to destroy their platform! Why they killed those 11 employees! Yes, I now see what the old-time socialists have been raving about for over a century! (Ooops. Time to increase my anti-psychotics.)

    Wrong again!

    From the St. Pete Times: More of BP’s money has been heading to the campaigns of Republicans than Democrats. And as an industry, about three quarters of the oil and gas money has gone to Republicans since 1990, the Center on Responsive Politics noted. That disparity held true in the 2008 presidential campaign, as McCain and his running-mate Palin accepted $2.4 million in contributions from the oil industry, more than double the nearly $900,000 that went to Obama.”

    Arrest BP execs. Liquidate the company to pay for all those “lucky duckys”.

    It clearly doesn’t matter how far offshore the drilling is when the oil companies and inspectors ignore the regulations put in place to prevent such events from occuring. And that is a great triumph for those that want bi-partisanship.

    The government tells me if we didn’t demand illegal drugs, there’d be no more drug violence Does that mean If we didn’t drive so much and got a little inconvenienced by using mass transit—–?

    Hey POGO, have we met the enemy yet?

    Hmmmm. An actual report versus a blog. Which one’s more credible? Tough call…

    HQ, no offense, bud, but why stick up for those who’d dump petro-sludge on your home, then try to burn it off, then try to cap the smouldering ruins of your house, then try six other failed shut-off “techniques” – all of which have names worthy of mediocre porn / bad war movies. – Oh, and as if all that wasn’t enough, as you are standing there wondering what they hell else they are gonna do to what’s left of your property, they are spraying the place with “Corexit” – a substance guaranteed to kill anything and everything it comes in contact with. – Oh, did I mention that you used to run a vacation business on your property? Please have the place cleaned up before your customers arrive next week. Thanks.

    Lew, you’re coming around. Congrats! Big Oil has run many administrations over the last century, including your favorite, the previous one. when Big oil runs things, then we get miserable to non-existent mass transit & diminished investment & research in alternative energy sources.

    The oil spill & the dead workers are because BP decided that its profits mattered more than did safety & security.

    If BP were an ordinary natural person, it would be awaiting trial for involuntary manslaughter. But instead it’s a state-chartered ‘for-profit’ collectivity with all of the rights of a ‘person’ and none of the responsibilities. Maybe it will have to pay a fine.

    It does seem to be trying now; the worse the effects, the worse the PR, after all. Too bad it didn’t plan ahead. Very few corporations seem to plan for anything more than next quarter’s bottom line. That’s the trouble with these artificial persons; they’re really not very smart.

    toby, you really think humans act any different? You must blame only the bankers for the mortgage crisis too.

    You claim corporations (which are actually conglomerations of humans) are wrong, but here you are, happily partaking of their products. That’s pretty not smart. I don’t say that to upset you, just to state a fact .
