Will BP Get Away With Murder?? Yes!!
Remember Exxon?? Well it is my humble opinion that we are seeing a careful coming together of minds with the particular goal of having a repeat of the Exxon result. We have seen in recent days a large amount of donations targeted to the Republican party's hopefuls in the coming elections. Haliburton is going all out to pad the pockets of Republicans and they are already reaping the results of their hard spent dollars in the form of some vociferous complaints by Republican party hacks, about the job that the Obama Administration is doing, as it has been left wanting of more action and better media coverage. While this is going on, the ball has started rolling in the direction of getting the BP lawsuits to be conducted in Texas. Why would they do that? Republicans have always spent much of their efforts in office to pad the courts with dishonest judges in my opinion... At least Judges who are sympathetic to the Corporations instead of the public. Like Exxon and countless other cases, these judges are experts at circumventing the processes that exact justice upon these Corporations and their causes. Many Asbestos victims have never been paid one dime for their troubles after being exposed to the silent Killer in the line of their duties for the same Company who is denying their claims.
Mike Papantonio is now saying that BP will possibly try to have the various lawsuits consolidated into one big, oily, sticky, stinky and messy glob and put into the hands of one of these "professional" stalwarts of the Republican agenda...an agenda of Corporate over Country, powerful before people and money instead of morality. One just has to look once at the countless animals that are dying as a result of Corporate greed in BP's latest spill, to become outraged at the issue. We all know that the Republicans shredded the regulation requirements which in turn was key in BP being able to not have better safety and prevention methods in place before the accident.
If Mr. Papantonio is as correct in his prediction as I think he is, the end result will be ...BP gets away...with murder, 11 human murders and millions of animals in the wild. Murder is a harsh and dirty word, but it barely describes the deeds that deserve the term. It actually consolidates the grievous acts that sometimes take a long time to plan and execute and puts it into a short, neat word...murder... that does not really give the horrendous act, the justice it deserves. Plan? Am I suggesting that BP planned this accident? No, but they planned the cost of everything from accident, to clean up, to restitution, to favorable advertising, to raising the price of it's products globally, slightly and steadily, as little as a nickle raised on a gallon of gas... which will, over time recoup all their expenses. It won't end up costing them a penny. So yes they planned some aspects of this. They planned that paying, amounts to less than the profits they make by cutting corners. In this case they did not predict the scope of this disaster and they may in the long run still lose out in many ways, I know that I personally have been boycotting their gas stations as I have boycotted Exxon's since their spill in Alaska.
We have seen this many times before, Car companies choosing to leave defective cars on the road and instead pay some limited damages to the victims while reaping the Billions in profits. Shame on you, those Republicans who are responsible for this shredding of the regulations...this blood is on your hands. In my opinion, whatever microscopic payments BP will be required to make will in no way compensate for the widespread murder they caused.
