    Wild idea, I know, but the focus has pretty much shifted to drilling a relief well and nothing more, which could take months.
    If it doesn't work, then you have a scuttled ship in the way when you try something else.

    So what? Buying stock thinking the dividend will never be changed is idiotic.

    You can't sift through oil and decide which was pumped by BP and which wasn't.
    But I can make a choice not to go to any BP Stations.

    Most BP stations are most likely locally owned and operated.

    You think that's going to hurt BP?

    That's what's hillarious about the Leftists's reaction to all this. Everything they want to do hurts the little man. It doesn't hurt BP. You think Tony Hayward is losing sleep because Kali isn't going to a BP station? The answer to that would be hell no.

    It will hurt them if everybody in the U.S.A stopped giving them business. Look I feel bad for the people working in there lousy gas stations but I feel even worse for what BP has done to our country.

    So tell me how CAN I hurt BP without hurting others? What can consumers DO?

    Nothing! You can't hurt BP without hurting the working class folks, first.


    Are you as passionate at hurting the government for inacting the drilling moratorium, that will hurt tens of thousands of working class people?

    Nothing. Oh well. Guess I will stick to my original plan and never set foot in another BP Station. I hope the workers of these places are on the hunt for new jobs.

    What is nice is to live in a country where I can spend my money wherever the hell I want. I have already said I feel bad for the people working in these places but my HEART will not let me give another dime to BP. I am sorry you think I suck because of this but will get over that in a quick minute.

    If the workers of these BP stations end up losing their jobs? I feel our gov. should step in and force BP to give them a nice package where they will be taken care of long enough to find a job.

    You think I suck because I will no longer give BP anymore of money? That is your right. But keep in mind "I" am not the one that caused this mess and any anger you have towards someone maybe should be directed towards the source: BP.
