    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.
    "Our president delivered his State of the Union message to Congress. That is one of the things his contract calls for -- to tell congress the condition of the country. This message, as I say, is to Congress. The rest of the people know the condition of the country, for they live in it, but Congress has no idea what is going on in America, so the president has to tell 'em." ~ Will Rogers

    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.

    Link? Evidence? That's a mighty hefty claim. Do you have anything to back it up???
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    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.
