The BP scam.

I’m sure most of us remember the ‘tragedy’ of the BP oil spill the 20th of April 2010. Considered the biggest oil spill in the history of the petroleum industry. Resulting in 11 deaths and the loss 4.9 million barrels of oil. The spill caused the over emotional reaction of environmental activist scrubbing seagulls with Dawn, and has earned the government 4.5 billion dollars.

Thursday, BP the British oil empire, plead guilty on 11 accounts of man slaughter along with giving false information on the amount of oil seeping from the bottom of the ocean. They will pay a settlement 4.5 billion dollars. The largest criminal fine in history.

Federal prosecutors have made this outrageous. They are suing a company that lost countless dollars in oil, time, customers, along with cleaning up the mess. With the fattest fine in criminal history. May I remind you, the oil mess that was suppose to shake the world for centuries and change the course of humanity, his been dispersed throughout the ocean and is off the gulf shores. 4.9 million barrels of oil, gone. How did this happen? I’m sure it has nothing to do with the fact that crude oil is a natural substance taken from the ground. Like most organic things, It tends to dissolve naturally. The mess has been cleaned up, the seafood industry is still alive, and seagulls still fly above the air and bother people in the same manner as always. BP wasn’t perfect about the whole escapade, but the oil has been cleaned, and life continues.

The death of the 11 employees is a tragedy. However, 4.5 billion dollars in the governments pockets is helping the families of these men. In fact, the government is the only beneficiary in this case.

At 4.5 billion dollars, doesn’t a prison sentence make more sense? Obviously any criminal prestigious enough for that high of a fine deserves a prison sentence for his crime. Yet, BP is handing over a fortune. This does seem to be how the government does business though. Speeding tickets for example, why does the local government benefit from what they are trying to stop? Well, they need the money they are already stealing from you in tax dollars to fund their bank accounts and agendas.

This is not about justice, this is about profit. This revels (yet again) the governments arrogance and scamming nature. How they use even justice, whatever that word even means anymore, to make money and promote socialism.

Although this shouldn’t surprise us, 14 trillions dollars in debt had to involve quite a bit of theft.

    The Federal Government spent billions(and is still spending) on the cleanup. You think they shouldn’t pay it back?

    What the hell?
