    And yet, they received $308m in stimulus funding from the Obama Administration. Effectively, the taxpayer is paying for the clean up - just like Obama promised they would not. Color me shocked.

    thank your politicians, on both sides, that sold away property rights and let big companies do anything as long as they pay off the right people. BP would have been out of business and its employees & execs in jail already if we had politicians and laws that were made for citizens instead of businesses

    If Bush had given BP $308m in stimulus, you'd be baying like a fucking wolf for his blood. But, because it's Obama.... all of a sudden it's 'both side'.... fuck you, blu. This Administration owe this one.

    And... in order to put anyone in jail.... we're supposed to try and convict them in a court of law.... not the fucking media.... moron.

    what? the worst of the laws giving oil companies exemptions from environmental regulations were written by the oil companies themselves during the bush administration.

    also, the people would still go to trial, but during that time they would sit in jail without bail and when they were found guilty they would be given the maximum sentence

    You'd think BP could afford something a little more high-tech than an old Chevy pickup truck.

    Sadly, if it were radioactive waste, people could buy geiger counters and determine for themselves where it is, etc. Dead is dead, Allie. If it were YOUR kids who risked this poison, would you be so quick to dismiss the danger?
