    The complete con job by BP of those who made their livelihood on the gifts from the Gulf should come as no surprise. Where is the EPA? Why are we giving BP, a foreign company no consequences? Why do we continue to frack and drill and destroy our environment with no concern? Unfortunately my grandkids will suffer the consequences because big oil can lobby government in any state while we pray an oil rig will not show up accross the street from our house one day when we get up.

    So what else is new. BP is only following the example set by Exxon Corporation in the Exxon Valdez disaster in 1989. There, Exxon promised to “make whole” the losses suffered by native fishermen and others to the extent of $5 billion. Then after all the attention was diverted from the spill and from Prince William Sound Exxon quietly challenged this amount of damages, and several years later, after much wrangling through the courts, Exxon got the original figure reduced to $500 million. By that time, some of the plaintiffs had either died or moved elsewhere. Why is it that we allow corporations such as Exxon and BP to set the amount of reparations to be paid for such disasters, and then allow them to challenge the amount of the damages they originally agreed to?

    So what are we doing to stop BOP from succeeding with these loathsome tactics? How can I participate?
