BP, Halliburton and Transocean




I believe BP, Halliburton and Transocean got together and planned on passing the buck among each other before Congress. Knowing full well that after a while (maybe a couple of months) of this pointing fingers, it will all be forgotten, and in the end, all us peons of the world will not only get use to the horrendous destruction caused to our marine life, wildlife, and livelihood for so many families, but also foot the bill in one way or another.

It amazes me at the ease of straightforwardness these three men make a sworn oath by raising their right arm ("I swear to tell the truth; nothing but the truth; so help me God") to cover their asses. I don't really know if they use "So help me God anymore." Anyway, it's enough to make one b*rf.

Do we have a voice, or are we continuously fooling ourselves in thinking so? I'm interested in your thoughts.

amazing...
I didn’t know Cheney was once led Halliburton as a CEO.

Someone there mentioned the Drill Baby Drill clan. Wonder why old Sahara the PAIN has kept so quite about this catastophe?

As for these two guys, they have come up with something brilliant. Hope those in high places pay attention.

Thanks for this amazing link!

Corporations always seem to win. The rules are set up so that it's hard to bring them to justice. I am confident that Obama will not let them slip away unnoticed, but will hold them to any promises and pledges they make to fix the mess they made

the winners...
I hope so, but I don't think so. I just don't trust these guys like these who have so much money that makes them always come out the winners.

I know President Obama will do everything in his power, but I don't believe he stands a chance with these ruthless, powerful, cheapskate money mongers.

No wonder they have no (conscience) problems sleeping.

Just reminds me the sad case of Exxon Valdez. Ultimately, the corporations win

Oh yes, they always win. Is it any wonder why they're filthy rich?

Don't you think the right to bear arms is a bit outdated now?

Outdated?

Oh Heavens, no! :o)

Actually, at this point, it's even more important. Keeps the govt and its owners at bay to a certain extent.

Eventually a corporate entity will be blamed...may not accept blame. In the end we will pay...our planet will pay.

We are the ones who always pay for their messes. What makes my heart bleed with heartbreak is what they've done, and coninue to do to our Mother Earth.

We have a voice...

We just don't have a unified voice, or we're not loud enough.

Even if we all united, I just don't feel our voices matter anymore.

Seems like traditional statist behavior to me.

Politicians steal from the people and give to their highest contributing donator through tax incentives, subsidisation, or bail outs.
