    See, CPD has no CLUE about the oil industry. She keeps ranting and raging, even with tons of facts in her face proving her wrong, I mean it's almost funny now. We've, well more honestly, AP has proven her wrong beyond my wildest abilities. I am no master at the computer, I heed to you AP, you own this thread! In one post you can say more than I can say in 10. I know my stuff, you know your stuff, but you can CONVEY your messages so much better than I can. Good job, I am quite proud of you!

    Think about this AP. You and I know about as much about coal mining as CPD knows about the oil industry. Would you, in your right mind, argue with people who live and work in the coal mining industry regarding a 6 month moratorium on excavating coal from the president? Why would I even try? I know when I know nothing about an industry and respect the people in that industry. Even if I don't agree with what they say, I know that their knowledge base is strong so their opinions are probably right, when mine are wrong based on me not knowing **** about coal mining.

    That's the little part CPD and IT have a problem with. Knowing when to respect people who live and work in an industry and not act like you know more than they do because they will embarrass you to no end, as you AP, have done to them, specifically CPD.
    I've seen that posted dozens of times on internet forums. It's amzing how some folks don't know the difference between a drilling rig and a production platform. But, hey, these are the same folks that don't understand that 99.9% of the equipment on your garden variety drilling rig, is rented, from somebody.

    What the hell do you and I know? We only work here...

    Hell, I doubt you and I would argue in favor of a 6 month mining moratorium, because we know it wouldn't solve anything, it would only kill jobs...

    Maybe it makes a difference when you're talking to folks who actually work for a living, I dunno.

    I'm going to Venice in the morning, with a permit load and that's another point to consider. If there aren't anymore permit loads going to Venice, the NOPD can't get $100 per cop, to escort the truck three miles. The ramifications of the moratorium are endless.

    It is true, BP does not stand for "British Petroluem." You will find that phrase nowhere in their corporate filings... The companies name is "BP plc." Not "British Petroleum".

    The name "BP" derives from the initials of one of the company's former legal names, British Petroleum.

    The BP initials do stem for British Petroleum.

    But that is no longer the name of the company. If people are going to rail against a company, they can at least get the name of the company correct.

    So what... the company does not exist. Try walking into a courthouse and filing a suit against "British Petroluem", you will get nowhere because that company does not exist.

    Good grief, amazingly you guys were able to figure out who I was talking about.

    I apologize to whomever I may have offended with my egregious error. I have shamed my family for generations to come.

    Call them kingdom come I don't give a crap, they screwed my state up due to negligence. Change of a name means not a damn ****ing thing except to a liberal that has nothing to grab onto except this extremely weak string. This is flat out pathetic. This is literally like getting mad at Toyota for making a ****ty car and then coming on here and saying they aren't Toyota anymore, they are Toyota industries, inc, so at least get it right. C'mon man.

    Are you being fa' real or you just ****t'n us?
