The "Life" of a Kid Chauffeuring, Schedule Maintaining,
Mr. Fix-it Chef Wannabe - If You See Me, Please Shoot Me!
When we were in Britain a few weeks ago, I was reminded on occasion that BP is controlled by mostly American investors. Probably true but I haven't looked into it further. Am definitely of the opinion that corners were cut with the drilling.
Corners WERE cut with maintenance and upkeep, anyway.
Corners are always cut when the bottom line is not producing a good product at a profitable price, but answering instead to a myriad of special interests outside the end user. Like shareholders and the U.S. gooberment. But in this case, unlike, say, making a television, this has the potential to negatively impact an entire planet for decades, maybe even centuries.
More greed, is anyone still surprised?
Good afternoon Buzz Kill,Not off topic. The willingness to cut corners and take the low ground in the name of profit, is what caused this problem in the first place.
not off topic at all. Nice job, especially the photo.
In response to your comment on Boxer's blog this a.m., I'm sending you a virtual Ronnie James Dio devils' horn hand gesture. Cheap Trick with the kiddos, huh? You are either totally on something or totally cool. Either way, have FUN!
PamWell, that Tony Hayward guy has a British accent. I'm appalled at the political impact big oil can have ofn the world. That a company can influence the release of a convicted terrorist despicable. They have no shame whatsoever.HeffLest anyone think that BP is the only ones that do this, I'm waiting for the next big oil well to blow. MoiThese guys play god without a 2nd thought. They forget their kids live on this planet too.FishyThis whole terrorist for oil thing was actually surprising to me because I never thought about it. Who knows where the line that won't be crossed is, assuming it exists.Karl/BoxerOff topic in that the theme was the gulf oil spill and the terrorist for oil thing hasn't been connected to that - yet.Moi (again)"Mommy's alright, Daddy's alright, they just seem a little weirdSurrender, surrender, but don't give yourself away."This was suppose to be a family thing with the Mrs going too. She told the kids and they were all stoked for it. Then she tells me she's going out to dinner with her family that night and we're on our own. So I was set up. I do know a guy who use to be a roadie for Cheap Trick and he says he can get us backstage. If his word is good, I'll write about it.
I posted a video in your honor. Man, I forget how much I dig Cheap Trick.
more honors, I hereby declare you;1. An awesome Dad2. The winner of the Haiku contest this week!
heck yeah it is on topic....who knows what all is in the mix--the Brits ain't feelin' nicey nicey to the Obamanation much any more--
MoiThanks - I posted an after action report on the concert.BoxerYou have to stop making me the Haiku winner. They're not that good and I slap them together in 5 minutes. But I am honored. I do have to agree with the awesome Dad part. See my concert report.AuntyThis whole business at the price of the future of the world thing is pretty scary. There's probably a hundred others we don't know about - yet.
Buzz,Congrats on the win.You don't think it is great haiku?Okay, but how about great to raise the awareness of others to who owns the planet. Or those who believe they have the right to risk the planet we all share.Glad you boys had a great concert night with the boys. All children should be so blessed as to experience their first concert under good influences!
