    That's 1 cent per barrel of oil produced. It won't effect your precious gasoline prices.

    It would be downright unAmerican to force BP to to pay to clean up their own mess.

    No one is having to 'force' BP to clean up. They have already stated - in fact they said well before Obama said he would 'force' them - that they would pay whatever clean up costs were necessary.... AND they would pay legitimate claims for compensation. I fail to see what more they are expected to do. Other than stop the leak and it does appear that they are trying to do that.

    Cali G....have you been paying attention to the grillinng the heads of BP, TransOcean and Haliburton have been getting? Have you listened to their answers? I have never heard more of a blame game in my life. NONE of these assholes has any intention of paying for ANYTHING. This will all end up in the court systems for decades. It's the American corporate way!

    Actually, I feel more sympathy for those who may lose their livelihoods because of the spill. However, the facts remain:

    1. BP have NOT YET been found to be responsible.

    2. They have already said they could pay for whatever the clean up costs. Currently, they are legally responsible to pay $75million. They have already paid out well in excess of that.

    3. They have already stated that they will pay any compensation required.

    4. They certainly appear to be trying as hard as they can to stop the leak.

    Exactly what else are they supposed to do?

    This constant ranting against the company doesn't actually fix jack shit. Over in the UK, they interviewed some guy from La who is starting a campaign to cease all of BP's assets. They actually think the US government can seize the assets of a multi-national privately owned company.... That's communism.

    No, I haven't actually watched but it's hardly surprising since they don't actually know exactly what happened so it stands to reason that they don't know who's responsible.

    Fascinating that everyone is baying for BP's blood and refusing to acknowledge the FACTS.

    How much of a fucking idiot are you? Serious question - scale of 1 - 10, 1 being intelligent and 10 being brain dead - I'd put you between 8.5 and 9.
