    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    And boy do we have a lot of stupid here. Just put the Cylons in charge. They don't take vacations.

    Re: BP CEO Tony Hayward criticised for yacht trip

    If Hayward has any focus or responsibility still on this oil spill I think he should have been back at the home office in Britain working on it and not out on a yacht. I have a problem with this just as I have a problem with Obama golfing, watching concerts, and having vacations while all this was occurring. Golfing and some minor distractions COULD be viewed as simply exercise but it's also entertainment and a "game". Focus people --- we've got help being offered from all over the world we're not taking, the Jones act still not waived and local area's taking matters into their own hands at risk of breaking Federal law to protect their beaches and the people who live there and their way of life. I don't think it's so harsh or unreasonable for our "leaders" or the "CEO" of BP to ****ing focus on this for a few months of their life and put other things aside until it's cleaned up / fixed.

    Rahm is an embarrassment and hypocrite. Obama is a fool for playing politics, agenda games and fiddling while "rome burned", and Hayward is an ignorant elitist. Let's not forget either that Hayward is no corporate capitalist pig the way he's being portrayed either... far from it.

Lobbying records show that BP is no free-market crusader, but instead a close friend of big government whenever it serves the company’s bottom line.

    While BP has resisted some government interventions, it has lobbied for tax hikes, greenhouse gas restraints, the stimulus bill, the Wall Street bailout, and subsidies for oil pipelines, solar panels, natural gas and biofuels.


    Now that BP’s oil rig has caused the biggest environmental disaster in American history, the Left is pulling the same bogus trick it did with Enron and AIG: Whenever a company earns universal ire, declare it the poster boy for the free market.

    Obama is a national leader--supposed to be anyway. Tony Hayward is a blow-dried suit-n-tie wearin' mother****er that would just be in the way.
    Such socialism.

    No, such looking out for the general welfare of the country. You know, like it says in the Constitution? Why is it all or none with Liberals?

    Nitrous oxide is a gas also called laughing gas.

    Inhaling it will tend to cause people to laugh at the slightest thing rather then kill them, unless they inhale to much

    I care ****all if the environmental criminal is available to tell more lies on one particular day or not. My only bitch is that he should be unavailable because he's behind bars awaiting trial, not because he thinks he deserves "a day off."
