100B? Too bad America will lose ten times that before their mess is cleaned up.

2 relief wells was inadequate to begin with--something like 8 (and as early as possible), would have be more appropriate.

Unless the Federal Government and the Obama Regime are totally lunatic--crippling corporate losses or bankruptcy should not allow disaster-connected entities to just walk away (especially with necessary resources) from the required stabilizing of those Gulf oil-well leaks.

The stabilizing effort continues under military control--with other oil companies running the operation.

Actually, BP assets should have been seized, early in the disaster--and their gulf disaster-connected executives and operations managers should be in prison (at the very least).

You "see" what you want to see jackass! It's going to COST REAL time, energy, resources, shortened lives and MONEY (trillions) just to deal with the BP CRIMINAL NEGLIGENCE--which will likely become a global environmental catastrophe in everyone's present lifetime (except yours apparently)!!! Applying their assets (by force if necessary) is what should have been done by the first week of this (undeclared) national emergency!

What plastic world do you exist in jackass!?? What's going on in the Gulf of Mexico requires immediate constructive action--not quibbling as to whether a criminally negligent corner-cutting global corporation has rights or precedence over the mega-disaster it created!!

Talk about weird--wake up you imbecilic immature inflexible jackass!! Are you related to the slow-motion puppet in the White House!??? Are you shill-trolling for BP!?

Want to know something more jackass--the Federal Reserve System should also be NATIONALIZED--and eventually turned into individual state-controlled banks.

I have NO problems repeating myself--wake up you imbecilic immature inflexible jackass!

What practical, constructive relevance does your question have with dealing with BP's Deepwater Horizon screw-up and it's worsening consequences!? If I asked you jackass--if you believed in Free--Market Capitalism--what relevance would that have to dealing with BP's criminal negligence or effective crisis management!?

If your only preoccupation is how protected BP's corporate rights are--regardless of their created negligent Gulf mega-disaster--then you are one pathetic inflexible retard!! You make less rational sense that the corporate sock puppet in the White House! At least he does his inflexibility because of blackmail and corporate payoffs.

wow...you're just ranting various conspiracy theories now...not making any sense at all.

I thought it was a fairly simple question from which you continue to run like a small child.

I thought private companies could do everything better than the gov't...so why would we want BP's ops nationalized?

You posed an irrelevant question--and I provided a straightforward answer--with comparison! Where "you" are concerned, if my reply is disappointing--well, just too too bad!!! I can't give even a rat's ass of importance to whatever your reaction is!

If "you" can't figure out why BP's assets should be seized, or their corporate operation taken over and applied towards dealing with their negligent mega-screw-up costs--then it's YOUR PROBLEM RETARD!!

Actually, what you appear to "think" has no rational relevance with bringing the Gulf oil crisis under control (IMO)!

Whether this is some sort of debate or psycho game to "you"--NOT the same for me! The Gulf Disaster is deadly serious (IMO) in what it portends in the coming months--perhaps years or even coming decades.

Perhaps "You" may not care if corporate oligarchs decide what REALITY will be for most--but that's NOT my inclination.

Take a shower or take some meds--and focus on the emerging negative consequences resulting from this allowed, dragged-out environmental fiasco.
