I think BP needs a wake up call! We need to boycott their gas after what's gone on in the Gulf. It's the least we can do.

Send the message that you won't buy at BP because being negligent and covering your ass doesn't sit well with Americans.

I don't think BP should be boycotted. The regulations oversight by the US Government of oil producers is just as much to blame. In fact, the way the oversight rules are written the United States are BP equal in blame.

Eleven people lost their lives! The remedies so far are an attempt to staunch the loss of money rather than the environmental loss.

If you boycot BP the economy will take a massive hit and stocks will bottom out the same day, when you consider the factors in play a boycot isn't an option. The current economy is unstable spiking one minute and at all time lows the next, inject some chaos into that unstable behavior and you'll get a massive ripple in the economy that could take us down yet another notch, basically, the bottom would drop out and you'd go hungry so BP has you right where they want you, by the balls. The sugar coated news cast's turn my stomach, the devastation is far worse than that which is being portrayed, that in it's self is enough to deal a finishing blow to the nation as a whole.

BP made people volunteering to clean up the spill sign a gag order. Someone sent me a message and told me their cousin is being interviewed by CNN and another news source. The chemicals are making the people sick.

BP is also trying to keep under wraps the pictures of birds and dolphins dead in the area. It's not gonna hurt the economy to boycott them. They are greedy and need to be put out of business. Due to their shortcuts this happened. I won't use BP again.

Boycotting BP will not hurt the economy! We still need the same amount of gas. Throwing our money to more responsible companies will help THEIR stocks. How many small business people in the Gulf have been hurt, what about the wet lands, and lets don't forget loss of lives. In BP's 1st quarter of THIS YEAR they reported $5598 million PROFIT compared to $2387 million last year. Guess now we know why their profits went up. Cutting corners with reckless drilling to make it as fast as they can has caused this emergency. Yes our government is responsible for relaxing and even lifting the laws that 'were' in place before the Bush/Cheney years. It goes back to that 'small government' no regulation thing the republicans love to preach about. This is what it gets us. Now they're screaming for the regulations to be put back in place. Remember Bush and Cheney were 'oil men', yet they would have had us believe they were all about 'small businesses', ask small businesses if they are regulated. They're regulated almost to extinction.

Let's see what has happened. 11 workers KILLED all knowing they were working in unsafe conditions in the name of MONEY. Our 'Eco System' that will be changed if not destroyed in the Glades and the Gulf. Small businessmen cannot pay their bills because they cannot fish and every job that pertains to that. Beaches are closed preventing vacationers from coming, affecting hotels, stores, and restaurants. All off shore drilling shut down for 5 weeks affecting prices for our consumer gas and oil, their employees haven't got to work either. Coastguard, naval, and national guard activated and taken away from their normal duties. Native fish and birds drowning in muck.

HUH, sounds like a big deal to me. Sounds like an Economic, Environmental, People 'big deal'. That sounds like it ought to get some attention, but maybe not from someone as 'shallow' as you. You're far too busy with 'Infowars'.

Do I need to tell you how this is a Bush/Cheney deal? Don't embarrass yourself. We can start with 'Haliburton' paying Cheney $37 Million to run with Bush, and then round it off with 'Halliburton's' role in this oil spill. But I'll be happy to lay it out for you.

Seems to me from what I have read that BP and the inspectors who let things slide are to blame. BP should have had a plan in place for such an emergency. The gov., should have required a plan for oil spills. They should have had a shut off valve. The effects it has on our environment are going to last for a long long time. It is taking way too long to find a solution to the problem. Meanwhile the oil continues to flow.
