Oops! British Petroleum sends its flunkies to the Gulf of Mexico to carry out a dangerous and ill-conceived project without adequate safeguards, and a disaster results that claims eleven lives. British Petroleum gets a stern lecture from our President Incarnate.
Oops! Our President Incarnate sends his flunkies to Afghanistan to carry out a dangerous and ill-conceived project without adequate safeguards, and a disaster results that claims twenty-three lives. I look forward to the Presidents stern lecture to himself.
An economics prize for Krugman, a peace prize for Obama they really give Nobels away like candy these days. (Yes, I know those two prizes technically come from different organisations.)
I would love to hear BP admit that they’re just buying time until the relief well is complete 45+ days from now — that they value the preservation of oil more than the gulf coast form of life.
In exchange, the president can admit that he won’t advocate non-violent solutions to a problem that has its origins in epistemology — namely, a belief-system.
How dare you bring up BP and not bring up how horrifyingly evil they are! You must obviously like them and approve of everything they do! jk
