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.
