Is there a leader anywhere who will take BP's assests, arrest the BP executives, and take charge of the clean up? Each Ridley Kemp turtle that is burned alive is a penalty of up to 50K that BP is avoiding. This is definitely destruction of evidence but while Obama hides out in the White House BP gets to destroy the evidence.
We need a President who is willing to take charge and confiscate BP's assets so they can be used by the gov to stop this catastrophe and clan up this corporate mess.
BP's interests are not ours. They are burning turtles alive, and trying to bury the evidence so they can keep from paying costly penalties. Obama appears to be a snarky BP handmaiden and not the President we need.
Imagine....let's put the Pentagon on a budget and give EVERY AMERICAN a tax break on the first 35,000 dollars of their income (70,000 for couples) and then have money left to apply to the deficit. (Source)
In these dire economic times we could all use an federal tax break. Call your representative today!

Over at the Huffington Post Georgianne Nienaber is reporting on BP's continued negligence in the Gulf Oil Disaster Clean Up. The rumor is that BP is going to do the minimum that it has to and declare bankruptcy and leave everyone else to foot the bill.
Why doesn't the US confiscate all of BP's assets? It still won't be enough to take care of the bill but it would be a start. And it might make the next corporation think twice about the risks it is willing to take in pursuit of the all mighty dollar, yen...or whatever currency they are chasing!

Now if the corporate media would just take the time to do some fact checking on their own so that they could limit the lies going out over their airwaves we would all be better off.
Here's the video of Liz Cheney and her typical way of trying to cover up for Daddy (why doesn't anyone call the corporate media on this obvious nepotism and giving Cheney such a platform for continuing to defend her daddy....
Here's a fact check.

In a sane world, a company guilty of gross negligence that resulted in the deaths of 11 workers would be under criminal investigation, and not be parading around the coast, telling the media where they can go and who they can talk to, while forbidding their clean-up crews from wearing protective gear.
Law enforcement doesn’t handle other crimes like this. Cops don’t let serial killers tidy up their crime scenes after they’re done a’stabbin’.
Kilkenny is telling it like it is. Welcome to the United Corporations of America! The land where lots of money gives you special interests complete with "special rights" and you are above the law.
BP continues to use dispersants in an attempt some say is to cover up the oil but causes greater damage to marine life. BP will not cease using these horrific chemicals even though the US government has told them to stop these practices. BP says that it is big and important. BP appears to own DC and maybe they are correct. After all the same Justice Department that ruled AIG had done nothing wrong will be investigating BP. I betcha the BP big wigs are shaking in their boots.
Where's the change and the justice we voted for?
