The Oil Spill
The oil is still spilling, and people apparently aren’t happy about it. If I had to guess I bet BP is the one who wants to stop this spill the most (or at least stop 1st amendment rights if they can’t stop the spill). What do the environmentalist idiots have to lose? I mean really, other than their sense of duty to protect the environment they don’t lose anything. BP has their entire business to lose. I’m not saying this is going to destroy their company, but this much bad press and this much of their funding going to plug this spill would certainly make me be motivated to stop the leak as soon as possible.
I think people get “evil” and “capitalist” confused. Everyone hates BP right now, I think some people legitimately think that the oil executives of BP looked at the environment one day, saw it was clean, started maniacally laughing, and then turned a giant valve wheel that just started shooting oil out into the water. In reality BP doesn’t want this to happen either. People still hate Exon for that big spill a while ago. BP doesn’t want that. This was an ACCIDENT. Accidents happen. There are some things that are out of our control. And anyone who self-righteously criticizes BP and accepts my satirical scenario as fact should leave modern civilization. If you hate oil so much you’re not allowed to use it. Simple as that.
Lastly, apparently it’s a big deal that 264 water or flying animals have been found dead or dying because of the spill. I’m pretty sure that within my family we’ve shot that many birds while hunting. Yeah, it sucks the birds and fish went to waste, but it’s really not a big deal at all. I challenge you to tell me how those 264 animals impacted your life in any way. Bird eggs covered in oil? That just means they burn better before you throw them. I’m not saying we shouldn’t try and fix the issue, all I’m saying is that 264 animals is not a big deal at all. We have humans to worry about. As soon as murder, war, disease, and death are eradicated we can worry about the pelican.
