Why does the Federal Government get the money? Why isn't the money set up
in a trust for the people that were affected by the spill? More graft-more
government. I guess the Government resorted to a little extortion to allow BP
to still drill.
lket,Government collects more on taxes than what oil companies
make.Do you focus on the record profits of government? Do you know
how much tax is paid for every gallon of gas you buy?This country
would suffer without gas fuel.
@ procuradorfiscal: Bluffdale? Huh? What does Bluffdale have to do with
explosion and oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico?Talk about
off-topic.....And you're right - corporations get their money
from their customers, and customers are taxpayers, and ultimately if
corporations break the law they just stick it to the customers to recoup any
fees or penalties...but that doesn't mean we shouldn't
hold them accountable for their actions.
Re: " . . . if we pollute the ocean enough we will all die . . . ."Yeah -- good luck with that. Bluffdale pollution would have a REAL hard
time reaching the ocean.But, the post is a truly breathtaking
illustration of the automated, off-topic dogma and misdirection that passes for
modern liberal "thinking!"Keep up the good work.
why procradorfiscal would you say anythig like that when oil companies are
making record profits on us the people and in utah we are 10th to the highest
prices on gas when almost no fuel in utah comes form other places. do you know
if we pollute the ocean enough we will all die and the who is a liberal or
conservative will mean nothing because we will be dead.
Re: "BP to pay $4.5 billion in oil spill settlement"Which,
since BP, as a corporation, only has what resources we give it, means WE will
pay $4.5 billion to our bloated, unaccountable government, to waste on more
bloat, on deranged social and global warming projects, and, most importantly to
liberals, on buy-offs of one or another liberal constituency.Real
victory for democracy, huh?
I read a few years ago, BP gave twenty billion to help people and clean up the
waters.What happened to that money?
