Now BP wants to go back to drilling in the Gulf so they are going in the back door to try and get that done. But has BP made one true and accurate statement of how they are better managed today and how they have a new set of safety principles they will abide by come hell or high water?

While the BP Gulf blowout was going on I watched all their minions of bean counters come around ---- that said they were the biggest of the big shots.

But they were not. They were front men trying to pitch propaganda to smooth and sooth things along with hopes that all that oil would slide right off the globe. But it has not and will not.

Another way to try and smooth and sooth things along was this statement The ‘BOP Stack is five stories tall’ I say “So what it failed’--- with that kind of thinking maybe some of the Small Fries Big Shot Bean Counters would recommend make one ten stories tall pay more for it ------ maybe that would fix the next blowout to come along.

I submit that the Big Shots in oil and gas today have clinkers in their thinkers. Not enough grease under their finger nails too many long lunches that proved out to be drunken debauchery.

So where is the genius found today in common sense and reason in Oil and Gas damn sure not in the board rooms.

Well I am glad the oil companies are doing so great because the rest of america is not. Hopefully Obama will start indicting some speculators who are tied to these oil companies. Then the price of gas will go down. Just something about all this smells like ENRON!!!

Exxon is laughing all the way to the bank! I think back to my early years when American Business was not always for making hugh profits off the little guy. When those days are gone for good, now it the little guy against big oil and all the banks. I wonder if Exxon had financial problems would we the American tax paying have to bail them out because they are too large to fail?
Keep going Exxon ripping off the American people, giving your CEOs and other top officers bonuses and big pay raises, no one in Congress really cares!
