Current news is that British Petroleum has endeavored to bribe individuals with a $5,000.00 payment to not file damage claims against them. Congrats to B. P. you're now added to the ever- expanding circle of corrupt multi-billion dollar a year corporations, and its nogood, overpaid, corrupt execs.
We as the American public will have to bear the cost of this four company blunder through lost jobs, higher gas costs, and higher seafood costs. Not to mention the environmental damage.
It used to be that companies took the credit for profits, and assumed the responsibility for losses and mistakes.
This is no longer true. the more devious and corrupt- the more rewarded. Decent, honest companies have now become the chumps. Go figure.

That's quite a mouthful. No citation(s)? If you want to convince people of anything, you better have something more convincing than your own accusations.

Agreed. This is a pretty bold statement and not back it up. We don't know how it is on the DU(well, we do actually) but on the CU, we ask for facts. If it's your opinion then state as much.

Not only that but 5 grand is a spit in the ocean. That measly amount is not going to buy anyone off. Smells like Bull Shit to me.

I wanted to go to Gulf Shores AL tomorrow. One of those last minute deals for 7 days on ebay but the dumb shit would not knock off the $110 cleaning fee. So, I got another deal cooking in 2 weeks.

Even the large population of Vietnamese fisherman would turn their nose up at 5 grand.

We are smart enough not to migrate to the land of yankee liberal cesspools.

Hey now don't but all the blame on BP. I mean sure maybe they put the rig there and dug the hole and pumped the oil and didn't safeguard it properly and now the ecosystem is thrown out of whack and the entire gulf coast economy is taking a hit...

BUT, as Texas Governor Rick Perry said, it was "an Act of God" and we shouldn't be pointing fingers.

Lol no actually nothing new is happening here. What's sad is that people are surprised.

They bribed them with a whopping five thousand dollars? From where? Their piggybanks?

Okay, THAT'S IT.

Tell McSorley to get his butt back to VRWC HQ and to bring his recruiter with him. We are NOT getting the quality of trolls we used to, I don't give a damn if he has tenure, we are changing suppliers today AND I want his budget estimates for the last quarter. :mad:

In my office first thing Monday morning.
