BP: we drill or no relief?

Posted: 2010/09/03 in Blog

As if BP had not already disgusted me enough, they have now enfuriated me.  There has been a recent legislative proposal to bar any company from receiving permits to drill on the Outer Continental Shelf if more than 10 fatalities had occurred at its offshore or onshore facilities.  BP is, of course, fighting this as they want to drill.  They have even thrown down the card that this may prevent them from being able to fund the relief effort.

I say this, no relief effort, no USA business!  I have already made the consious choice to not fill up at a BP untill they have fully resolved the Deepwater horizon crisis.  Now that they want to play hard ball with us over the relief effort, I say we play hard ball back.  I’m sure that some crack pot lawer somewhere will state that it’s somehow unjust to penelize a company for an accident, but that’s not what I’m saying.  Guess what all of us regular folks have to do when we have an accident?  Answer: we clean up after ourselves!

List of known BP brands: BP, ampm, Aral, ARCO, BP Travel Centre, BP Connect, BP Express, BP Shop, BP 2go, Castrol motor oil, Air BP, and BP Shipping.

    I agree. At what point does a corporation’s conduct constitute depraved indifference to life? The company should lose its right to operate. Period.
