Category Archives: commission investingating BP spill
ProPublica has this to say on the cough…new report about who fucked up and why regarding the Deepwater Horizon oil hemorrhagic nightmare that is still ongoing in many respects. It seems the new commission is a lot like an old commission that reviewed the BP refinery blast that killed 15 of their employees in 2005 and which I blogged about here and here. From ProPublica:
It turns out the report—at least the language dedicated to the disaster’s most prominent miscreant, BP—echoes both public and private analysis done after a series of BP accidents, small and large, over the last decade. It also reaches strikingly similar overall conclusions. These likenesses indicate that BP’s most significant cultural deficiency is not necessarily its now well-documented lax oversight of safety, anemic risk planning and poor communication, but the corporation’s institutional inability to learn from its mistakes.
BP considers fines just a cost of doing business. They will never clean up their act ,unless and until, some of their head honcho’s are charged with criminal counts… like for instance…murder or at the very least willful homicide.
Check out the ProPublica writeup. It’s guaranteed to piss you the hell off if you are someone that cares about human life and the environment, or someone that despises greed.
This ‘objection’ by the rightwing extremists/corporate ass kissers known as the GOP is totally unconscionable…unless he/they are in bed with the oil industry, which seems obvious to anyone with two brain cells to rub together and and iq higher than that of a dandelion. Watch Tweety ask Bryan Dorgan about this horseshit below:
They can not even put these assholes at BP/Transocean/Halliburtion under oath from what I gather.
This commission has no teeth and we can thank Jim DeMint and the GOP for that.
Doesn’t it make you wonder who in the blue hell supports these worthless bags of batshit? Is it people that make over 250k a year and don’t give a shit about what happened to the environment in the gulf, not to mention all the jobs associated with that region?
It makes me physically ill m’dear reader…I ain’t shitting ya..it does. And it should do the same to you if you care one iota about the horror that happened in the gulf of Mexico because BP plain did not give a shit and spent as little as possible to drill that rig through the floor of the ocean so they could suck up even more oil and make more money.
