I don't agree with it, but he's not the first POTUS to do so. Nor will he be the last.

Ah yes, let BP die. Then even more of the cleanup costs and burden can fall on the taxpayers.

Great plan! :thumb up:

Not to mention their 100,000 of employees. No idea how many in the US, but I know numerous people that work there. Say it is half, 50,000, on the gov't dime and no longer paying taxes ain't a genius move.

We'll be paying for the clean up anyway you slice it.

If the money comes directly out of their pockets they'll get it back by fixing gas prices with help from the rest of the oil cartels.

We'll get the buck passed to us.

BP should suffer appropriate justified legal ramifications and what ever free market force punishment we deem, IOW if BP were to go belly up due to this b/c we the consumers never touched a BP product again, then so be it. Why does survival of the fittest never have to apply big business?

Small & medium size businesses go under b/c of mistakes they make, the PR kills them or the free market takes them down, a giant should be prone to the exact same risk.

ETA: I've also heard the argument that we can't be too tough on BP b/c of future implications on big business coming to the US, particularly oil, LMAO, the US is the Field of Dreams when it comes to consumption, especially gas and oil, a company would have to be run by morons not to set up shop in the US.

Only if Harry Reid has his way to tax all the oil companies for the cleanup... If BP is the only one punished for this they would have no (legit) way to raise prices in order to recoup the costs.

I actually agree. If BP fails on its own accord because if their mistakes, so be it. That's what happens when you fuck up. I just don't think that consumers or the government should make it a priority to "Kill BP" just for the hell of it.

The government kill BP just for the hell of it, no I agree bad move, just punish them accordingly. But consumers I would have zero problem with killing BP, even just for the hell of it. Fuck BP in terms of what we the consumer owe them in terms of loyalty or business. Gasoline has been manipulated to the point that there are only two things more important than it in this country, water & air.

Genius. What was I just saying?

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100608/ap_ ... ss_taxes_1

WASHINGTON – Senate Democrats are moving to quintuple the tax that oil companies pay into an oil spill liability fund.

The move would raise $15 billion over the coming decade as Congress seeks to shore up the fund in the wake of the catastrophic spill in the Gulf of Mexico. But it's also being used to ease a tax hike passed by the House on investment fund managers.

The new legislation would raise the tax on oil produced offshore from 8 cents to 41 cents per barrel. That's nine cents higher than legislation that passed the House last month.

The tax changes are being made as the Senate again takes up grab-bag legislation extending unemployment benefits and a variety of expired tax breaks enjoyed by both individuals and businesses.

Not saying we owe BP anything, the opposite exactly. Just looking at the bottom line for consumers as taxpayers. At least right now BP makes $45 million a day in profits, they can use that to clean up their mess. Better than another government bailout.

Yeah, shame on me for caring more about the environment, shrimp & crab cakes and the tourism industry...

Nationalize. Confiscate their cash and assets then give those 50,000 a bucket, mop and sponge and pay them $10 hr to clean up THEIR! mess with their own money

I couldn't care less about the 50K on the BP dime just like I couldn't give a rats ass if GM bellied up and all those UAW lemmings became burger flippers

Shore up? What was the bill they just sent BP? 1.5 billion a freaking year is more like exploiting the current situation to get more money for the general fund.

Seems like a great deal more tax then is needed...

Anyone care to re-address shedding tears for BP, their employees and their profit margins?

Yes its copy/paste from obr

"A prominent Houston attorney with a long record of winning settlements from oil companies says he has new evidence suggesting that the Deepwater Horizon's top managers knew of problems with the rig before it exploded last month, causing the worst oil spill in US history. Tony Buzbee, a lawyer representing 15 rig workers and dozens of shrimpers, seafood restaurants, and dock workers, says he has obtained a three-page signed statement from a crew member on the boat that rescued the burning rig's workers. The sailor, who Buzbee refuses to name for fear of costing him his job, was on the ship's bridge when Deepwater Horizon installation manager Jimmy Harrell, a top employee of rig owner Transocean, was speaking with someone in Houston via satellite phone. Buzbee told Mother Jones that, according to this witness account, Harrell was screaming, "Are you ******* happy? Are you ******* happy? The rig's on fire! I told you this was gonna happen."


Whoever was on the other end of the line was apparently trying to calm Harrell down. "I am ******* calm," he went on, according to Buzbee. "You realize the rig is burning?"..........

And this vid from CNN..(summary)
(CNN) -- The morning the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded, a BP executive and a Transocean official argued over how to proceed with the drilling, rig survivors told CNN's Anderson Cooper in an exclusive interview.
The survivors' account paints perhaps the most detailed picture yet of what happened on the deepwater rig -- and the possible causes of the April 20 explosion.

The BP official wanted workers to replace heavy mud, used to keep the well's pressure down, with lighter seawater to help speed a process that was costing an estimated $750,000 a day and was already running five weeks late, rig survivors told CNN.

BP won the argument, said Doug Brown, the rig's chief mechanic. "He basically said, 'Well, this is how it's gonna be.' "

"That's what the big argument was about," added Daniel Barron III.

Shortly after the exchange, chief driller Dewey Revette expressed concern and opposition too, the workers said, and on the drilling floor, they chatted among themselves.

"I don't ever remember doing this," they said, according to Barron.

"I think that's why Dewey was so reluctant to try to do it," Barron said, "because he didn't feel it was the right way to have things done."

Revette was among the 11 workers killed when the rig exploded that night.

In the CNN interviews, the workers described a corporate culture of cutting staff and ignoring warning signs ahead of the blast. They said BP routinely cut corners and pushed ahead despite concerns about safety.

The rig survivors also said it was always understood that you could get fired if you raised safety concerns that might delay drilling. Some co-workers had been fired for speaking out, they said.

It can cost up to $1 million a day to operate a deepwater rig, according to industry experts.

Safety was "almost used as a crutch by the company," Barron said. He said he was once scolded for standing on a bucket on the rig, yet the next day, Transocean ordered a crane to continue operating amid high winds, against its own policies. "It's like they used it against us -- the safety policies -- you know, to their advantage.

"I don't think there was ever a plan set in place, because no one ever thought this was gonna ever happen," he added.....

More....


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This interesting article shows how BP has been an advocate for government control and regulation for many years. It puts a lie to the notion that they are some sort of free market capitalist.

Some excerpts:

But the Kerry-BP alliance for an energy bill that included a cap-and-trade scheme for greenhouse gases pokes a hole in a favorite claim of President Obama and his allies in the media — that BP’s lobbyists have fought fiercely to be left alone. Lobbying records show that BP is no free-market crusader, but instead a close friend of big government whenever it serves the company’s bottom line.

While BP has resisted some government interventions, it has lobbied for tax hikes, greenhouse gas restraints, the stimulus bill, the Wall Street bailout, and subsidies for oil pipelines, solar panels, natural gas and biofuels.

Now that BP’s oil rig has caused the biggest environmental disaster in American history, the Left is pulling the same bogus trick it did with Enron and AIG: Whenever a company earns universal ire, declare it the poster boy for the free market.

BP was a founding member of the U.S. Climate Action Partnership (USCAP), a lobby dedicated to passing a cap-and-trade bill. As the nation’s largest producer of natural gas, BP saw many ways to profit from climate legislation, notably by persuading Congress to provide subsidies to coal-fired power plants that switched to gas.

Elsewhere in the green arena, BP has lobbied for and profited from subsidies for biofuels and solar energy, two products that cannot break even without government support. Lobbying records show the company backing solar subsidies including federal funding for solar research. The U.S. Export-Import Bank, a federal agency, is currently financing a BP solar energy project in Argentina.

Ex-Im has also put up taxpayer cash to finance construction of the 1,094-mile Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan pipeline carrying oil from the Caspian Sea to Ceyhan, Turkey—again, profiting BP.

Lobbying records also show BP lobbying on Obama’s stimulus bill and Bush’s Wall Street bailout. You can guess the oil giant wasn’t in league with the Cato Institute or Ron Paul on those.

No one was shedding tears for BP. I as well as others realize we do not operate in a vacuum and there are repercussions of watching BP go bankrupt. If you dont understand that then you are not worthy of discussing these issues with. I know numerous employees of BP in Ohio who are nothing more but hard workin' folk. While it would make you feel better to watch BP self destruct there are innocent bystanders.

By the way, the only reason BP is lobbying for cap and trade is the same reason that Wal-mart is participating as well. If it is going to happen in the future they want to be a part of the decision making process. This allows them to work in advantages versus their competitors. Then again that would require thought on your end which anyone who has been following you knows isn't your strong suit.

Deepwater Horizon/Transocean is not the same company as BP. BP was leasing the rig.

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Television talk show personality Larry King will host a two-hour, "two-screen" telethon to raise awareness of what people can do to help victims of the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.


Sure, let's go to the American public to donate money toweards the clean up and let BP not deal with it. I'm all for getting this cleaned up and getting the people whose livelihood is affected by this disaster but can't Larry and his celebrity pals strong arm BP into donating towards this? I'm sure BP can put up much more coin than the American public can. The sad part is, wildlife and these people most affected will die off before BP is forced to give any dollar amount.

This is my opinion only, but if some sort of disaster like this hit, natural or not, I would first do everything in my power to get another job/pay check/get the f outta a hurricanes way. Then I would go after BP, or someone else, looking for $$$. Sick of people looking elsewhere to fix their problems.

This BP situation is legit, don't get me worng, I mean the above in a more macro sense. Just as we now greet all disasters, natural or not, with white flags. We are becoming entitled, dependent, pussies. Sorry, had to let that rant outta my system.

Maybe I just need to watch more baseball, play some more golf, and go yachting.

EdgeyJoe double post here, but case in point is the Republican response to their own's apology to BP. Why force the guy to apologize for the apology. If he is out of line the backlash will affect him, and most likely him only. By forcing his hand, by threat of removal of his chair position, they played PR politics and will do nothing to make them NOT look ultra biz friendly. They have to take a somewhat opposite position to balast the enviro/socialist/anti biz Dems.

The Democrats would never do that to their own. How much stupid crap have individual members over their spouted, unchecked?

I get where you're comming from but, I wouldn't exactly put this in the same list as rebuilding multi million $ homes on sand dunes or waterfront property on the Mississippi either

I know I'd never live down there even if they didn't have hurricanes but I'm thankful for those who do the crabbin' & shrimpin'

Yir right tho...where does the money keep come from?

Sometimes I wonder if we can believe anything we see and hear esp government budgets where everything seems to be rounded off to the highest million.

I mean I just mite start looking into some Bilderberg conspirisy stuff and see what they want me to see

The past few days I've been thinking about this BP disaster and the Katrina disaster and on the surface cannot help but feel a bit more for the people of the Gulf this time around. Don't get me wrong, Katrina was awful, everyone was to blame from local to state to federal. Including, IMO, many residents that stayed behind despite the warnings not to.

I see the two as different in the respect that while both were natural disasters (to a point) the latter is in part, a large part, due to us tinkering with mother nature, as opposed to Katrina where we had no influence on the severity of the storm itself, only the aftermath by our lack of sensibilities etc... IOW this time around the people of the Gulf had some reason to have legit confidence in "the system" as far as getting things handled in a somewhat timely, proper and ethical manner. So for many or most of them to stick around and see what happens is IMO not a crime, as it could be looked at during the Katrina disaster.

The thing about this that really puts everything into perspective IMO is that every single oil company that does any kind of significant drilling has the exact same plan in place for responding to such an emergency, in some cases verbatim from what I have read. Which makes a major point, we really are not as up to snuff on this stuff as we think we are. We're literally still in the stone ages playing with fire when it comes to this drilling crap.

JB is going to shit a barnyard when he reads this.

I hate going back into discussions about "the K word" because it was a huge source of shame for some of our area, but I will say that the people affected in this spill are more of the type of people that I could personally relate to in comparison to those who were reaped most of the relief post-Katrina. Doesn't make me feel any better about the current situation though.
