    Where are all the famous poeple that normally love to show how much they care and help people in need? They were all over Katrina. They were falling over themselves to help out in Haiti. But I don't see much involvement in trying to help all the people whose lives have been turned upside down by the undersea oil geiser.

    Is it possible they just don't want to draw any more attention to the inept response of their boy Barrack? I guess politics means more to them than actually helping people.

    Oh well, I knew they were oportunistic douchers anyway.

    If they're anything like our President, they're working on their putting, because the world is going to be fine tomorrow! Obama has called a conference of unicorns to discuss reclaiming energy from rainbows, which will make fossil fuels a thing of the past!

    The same place where the tea partiers are.
    They only show up for a party and a clean up is not one.

    Why should they aid a multibillion dollar industry (s) in paying its debt (s) to society?

    I was thinking the same thing the other day, mani. Isn't this one of those "Voices that Care" moments?

    I'm guessing that they see BP as the enemy and helping them would be like helping the enemy. Who knows, though. Celebs are a cooky bunch.

    Maybe Gadawg is on to something too. This isn't really something you can just throw money at to get everyone to fawn over you.

    I don't think it would be so much aiding BP as it would be the people whose claims have not been processed or paid. They could at least have cash in hand to take care of necessities since they have no money coming in from employment and unemployment doesn't pay anywhere near what they would be making if they were employed.

    Celebrities need a "cause" in order to act: Farm Aid concerts, AIDs concerts and benefit functions, "Save the Rats in the Mojave Desert" benefits ... they're not in touch with the idea that the people all along the US shores of the Gulf are suffering badly .... and besides, that ugly mess is not affecting their beaches or their view from their mansions on the hill.

    Those quaint little towns all along the coast don't hold any interest to them. But, New Orleans? That's a different story. They can party hardy, stay in luxurious hotels and/or own their own home there.

    I'm not talking about helping BP, I'm talking about helping real people whose lives have been devastated. Do you think they'd be this silent (and absent) if Bush were still in office?

    I took that into consideration. Celebs are whacked.

    Towards the administration?

    Of course not. Celebs hated Bush.

    Oh, and BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
