I will not boycott BP

Reply Mon 14 Jun, 2010 07:55 am
Can someone please tell me on what level of insanity a boycott of BP makes sense? A few things to consider:

1. The Deepwater Horizon oil drilling rig did not belong to BP. It belonged to a group named Transocean.

2. At the time of the explosion there were 126 people working on the Transocean rig. Only 8 of them were BP employees.

3. The vast majority of BP stations - the targets of the boycott - are privately owned by small businessmen.
The employees of these stations are not employees of BP.

4. What sense does it make to, on one hand, try to starve BP of money while, on the other hand, demanding that
they pay the costs of the cleanup? This line of thinking could only make sense to someone like Jesse Jackson.

Yawn! But, then you have no sense of personal responsibility, do you?

You are an insignificant ignorant idiot living in your parents basement, but we have been aware of this fact for quite some time now.

As for your questioning my sense of personal responsibility: I do not want to
be responsible for putting the good people at my local BP stations out of work.

On the other hand, it sounds like you would have no problem adding these
hard working Americans to the growing number of unemployed Americans.

And where is your sense of personal responsibility?
You commute 140 miles a day, polluting the air and water with your vehicle, without regard to what it does to the environment.
