    No, thats my view in general.

    Which in turn will drive away potential good employees. People wont work somewhere that doesnt guarantee the safety of its employees.

    Except that this disaster shows otherwise. BP and whoever else was involved did not keep up with their safety responsibilities.

    This has not historically been the case.

    They took the money, said they were going to do a job, then didn't. If a contractor did that on a construction job it would be clearly "getting in the way" of the builder.

    Neither did the Government. And if BP lied about it the way the Government did. people would be in jail.

    Talk about a straw man. This analogy fails badly. The govt. is the building inspector, not a contractor.

    since january 09 (gee, what else happened that momentous month?), 3 lease sales, 103 seismic blasting projects and 346 drilling plans have all been ok'd WITHOUT the permits REQUIRED by LAW

    meanwhile, mms DISSEMBLES before ap's journalistic INVESTIGATION, keeps CHANGING its numbers

    obama's coziest agency actually "whited out" probably the most painful passages of its correspondence

    not obama's katrina, the gulf is his chernobyl

    unfortunately, the oil doesn't
