IF THE GOVERNMENT THAT YOU AND I PAY, TO RUN THIS COUNTRY, HAS ANY LAST SHRED OF DIGNITY AND SELFWORTH, WILL NOT LET BP OPERATE INSIDE THE US OR WITHIN 2000 MILES NEAR OUR COASTLINES. GRANTED, YOU OR I DO NOT HAVE TO THE POLITICAL OR ECONOMIC OBLIGATIONS THAT HAVE BEEN ESTABLISHED BETWEEN BP AND OUR GOVERNMENT, BUT WHAT IS IT GOING TO TAKE TO REALIZE A BAD INVESTMENT AND CUT YOUR LOSSES?!! WHEN?! HAD A ROGUE PERSON, OR A WELL THOUGHT OUT SCHEME TO BLOW THE RIG UP CARRIED OUT, FOR THE SAKE OF MY POINT, BY THE "TALIBAN", I WOULD ALMOST BE CERTAIN THAT BP WOULD HAVE BEEN HAILED AND MARVELED AS HEROES.
THE EVIDENCE AND TRACK HISTORY OF BP'S WORK ETHICS AND PERFORMANCE HAVE ARE CLEAR! WAKE UP AMERICA! THEY HAVE NO BUSINESS OPERATING ON US SOIL! I AM EMBARRASSED THAT WE HAVE ALLOWED THIS COMPANY TO CONTINUE TO EMPLOY GOOD, HARD WORKING AMERICANS, TO FILL THEIR POCKETS AND INTERESTS. HOW MANY MORE DEATHS IS GOING TO TAKE? REMEMBER TEXAS CITY???
WHAT IF "THE AMERICAN'S" HAD A TERRIBLE EXPLOSION NEAR THE QUEEN OR IN JUST OUTSIDE OF LONDON OR BUCKINGHAM PALACE? I WOULD HOPE THAT THEY WOULD BE AS UNDERSTANDING AND PARDON OUR LACK OF SAFETY AND DISREGARD FOR THEIR PEOPLE.
BP AMERICA IS BASED IN HOUSTON! THEY ARE THE THIRD LARGEST ENERGY PRODUCER ON THE PLANET! BP IS IN OVER 80 COUNTRIES! TRUST ME FELLOW AMERICANS, THEY WOULD TIGHTEN UP THEIR BELT AND STILL BE AROUND..... ONLY NOT HERE! THEY HAVE MORE MONEY THAN WE CAN FATHOM. YET, WE STILL TOLERATE THEM WRECKING OUR BACKYARD. DO YOU SEE WHY PEOPLE LEFT THAT COUNTRY HUNDREDS OF YEARS AGO?
