Please Sign: Tell BP to Leave Gulf Businesses Alone

Business  (tags: BP cries foul over Gulf compensations, Gulf business claims, Deepwater Horizon oil disaster, BP backing out of agreement, corporate, energy, ethics, environment, pollution )

- 1792 days ago -
BP made an agreement to compensate Gulf businesses harmed by the 2010 Deepwater Horizon explosion and oil spill. But now its trying to back out of it. It's advertising itself as the victim, accusing businesses of taking money they don't deserve.

BP seems to have plenty of money to spend on advertising (even above and beyond the lawyers and such), telling people how concerned they are for the businesses and wildlife hurt by their careless spill, and how "We'll be here until it's all cleaned up"--too bad it's wasted money. Nobody believed them even BEFORE this. Oh, but you “just want your life back” don’t you? --How many people died when Deep Horizons blew up? Their families want those lives back. The businesses hurt by your penny-pinching want THEIR lives back. Their spill—now they should quit whining and pay up.

So when it comes time to actually pay money, BP decides OOPS! I don't think we need to pay at all! Sorry those of you whose lives were destroyed, you aren't that important anyway, I'm a big powerful oil company and you're just little people.

(Me talking now) It makes me sick to think about it!

Signed and noted! I live in Florida and they need to finish cleaning up their mess! The chemicals they used has settled to the bottom of the Gulf and is killing off the life of everything there!! Our corals, dying. Bottom feeders, dying!, Plant life, dying! Crustaceans, dying or deformed and I would not eat anything out of the Gulf! They need to remove their poisons from the bottom of the Gulf. AND FIX THE SLOW LEAK THAT IS STILL THERE!! GOT AN OIL SLICK 20 MILES LONG COMING FROM THAT RIG STILL!!! 3 years and it is still not completely fixed!! PAY UP BP AND FIX YOUR SCREW UP!

Let's not fool ourselves.
If Big Business ever had any morals, they have none, as we speak.
These so-called believers of faith, have permitted themselves to go against god's laws.
'There are six things that the Lord strongly dislikes, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness that breathes out lies, and one that sows discord among brothers.
Proverbs 6:16-19

Now, the fact that I am not one of these believers, does not portend that I don't believe that this proverb should be followed by all good and honest persons, but, then again some people, obviously, don't agree.
