Listening to the lastest on the BP oil spill I have to say that I very highly resent the fact that as the days go on, we're now being told that "WE" "ALL" have to take the blame for this oil spill. I say bullsh*t!
As a consumer, driver of a SMALL car, I don't feel the need to share the blame for BP's absolutely GROSS INCOMPETENCE in how they chose to run their oil well! THEY are the ones from the very beginning who've willfully & BLATANTLY lied, stonewalled on the amount of oil being spilled into the Gulf, ruining & killing everything in sight!
With the exception of perhaps *& no offense to* those who insist on driving ridiculously huge, gas guzzling vehicles, & I am talking about the *city drivers of* Escalades, the Hummers & those of that size, why should any consumer be expected to take the blame along with BP? WE are not the ones who decided to go drill an oil rig deep into the ocean, WE are not the ones who, rather than waiting for the cement to solidify on the structure, decided to plow ahead anyway, WE are not the ones who not only admitted to it but did blatantly ignore their own safety standards & not only that, admitted that they were not able to handle a catastrophe of such magnitude!!!!! Their sheer volume of gross & blatant incompetence is beyond the scale of disgust, this was a bunch of men running this company who clearly had NO IDEA WHAT THEY WERE DOING AND WENT AHEAD & DID IT ANYWAY!!!
The magnitude of the damage done is incalcuable & WE will be paying for it for a very long time; there are not enough tears in the world we could shed over this tragedy. Llvelyhoods are now in ruins, fish, animals & mammals are now dead or dying because of this. They will pay & pay & pay for years to come. So too should the very men who ran BP. I sincerely hope that this gross error on their part runs them into the ground. Nothing short of their complete & total bankrupsy will be enough.
