Big Polluter Is Too Incompent - Only the U.S. Government Will Be Able to Control It!

(Picture credit, AP, May 20, 2010)

All Americans should be extremely worried about BP, which is more interested than profits than people, safety, and the environment. The character of their business practices is well established in previous disasters which caused loss of life and harm to the environment.

BP will go down in history as one of the best textbook business case studies in what happens when a major corporation operates irresponsibly, and recklessly, while in relentless pursuit of profits. Their arrogance and incompetence have caused incalculable damage to people, property, the environment, the economy, and businesses for the next 50 years. People will also remember that despite the horror and loss of life at Nagasaki and Hiroshima in 1945, even those two places recovered faster than the U.S. Gulf Region will. BP will be known forever for the damages it has caused, and the damage will be visible for at least the next 40 to 50 years.

Sadly, BP is too arrogant to have shame and contrition about any of this. The BP Leadership Team is oblivious to the seriousness of this catastrophic situation and without any sense of responsibility or obligation to do the right thing. [Continued] Indeed, if guys from a non-state terrorist group had planned this disaster and successfully pulled it off, it would be called the most successful case of "eco-terrorism ever." Instead, BP’s CEO Tony Hayward just believes that it is "an unfortunate accident and a tiny leak in a huge ocean called the Gulf of Mexico."

So the best we can all hope for is that our executive and legislative branches of the U.S. Federal Government will act responsibly to curtail the actions of BP and rein them in.

Please help us end this horrible nightmare, President Obama, because you know that BP cannot control or be responsible for their actions.

Thank you.
