Ed Lavandera reports on the struggle between BP and the EPA over which chemicals to use on the oil slick in the Gulf.

* Gulf Coast Oil Spill – Special Coverage on CNN.com
* BP won’t change dispersant used in oil spill — for now

BP and chemical dispersant 2:01

This video shows what is really happening in the Gulf Coast areas where BP and the Marine Spill Response Corporation owned by the oil industry barons are stopping any and every effort to keep the oil off the coast and out of the marshlands – why they are doing it and how they are using our Coast Guard and other US federal authorities to stop other projects that would prevent the oil from reaching the coastal areas.

Maybe BP and other oil industry insiders figure that once all the wildlife and marine life in the Gulf is dead – they won’t have to be bothered with answering to the environmentalists anymore. It will be a wasteland specifically serving no other purpose than the harvest of oil and everyone will leave them alone.

Boy, are they in for a surprise.

See nearly all the fish are dead -and they didn’t show it in this video clip, but they also made an underwater video at the coral reefs and there were no fish.

I swear if I worked at BP – I’d find another job before it ruined my career and reputation forever. I don’t have that problem but I sure wouldn’t sit there and end up with that on my resume when I tried to go work somewhere else.

Found this –

Liability of shareholders for corporate debt:

Separating the owners from the business

Many individuals do business in the corporate form.  While the individuals think of themselves as the “owners” of the business, in reality they are the owners of the stock in the corporation that owns the business.  They are probably also its officers and directors.

When it is necessary to consider bankruptcy, it becomes important to know just which debts of the corporation, if any, the shareholders may be personally liable for.

Simply owning the stock in a corporation does not make the individuals liable for the corporation’s debt.  The shareholders may, however,  become liable for the debts of the corporation either by agreement or by operation of law.

(That’s just what I thought.)

http://www.moranlaw.net/shareholderliability.htm

So anybody who thinks the insurance companies are going to cover this BP mis-handling and criminal conduct – and the American taxpayer will be taking care of the rest so shareholders won’t be liable – are not playing with a full deck.

See, the funniest thing was that the BP executives lied to Congress when they were under oath. That is a no-no.

Then, they lied to regulators at every point in the process, that’s more than a no-no. That’s illegal

And, then – they not only killed eleven men and decimated the marine life in the Gulf of Mexico because they didn’t want the oil as visible so they used the dispersants they wanted to use – and that’s criminal.

And, that’s not all – when they led Congress and Federal agencies like the EPA to believe – or rather lied and misled them – well, that made them liable for more than the damages and the cleanup – that made them criminals and made all of their assets and operations vulnerable to be assumed just like any other drug criminal that kills the people and breaks the law – and just like any other Mafia-like gangster criminal activity that kills people and destroys communities and breaks the law. And just like any other terrorist that decimated human lives in the pursuit of their private agenda.

When the folks at BP and at the Marine Spill Response Corporation intentionally decided not to pursue any other course of action – and when they destroyed people’s lives and communities, and when they decimated all the numbers of wildlife and marine animals that they have – they stepped over the line into murder and criminal activities that were by their choices.

I don’t care why they did it, how they excused it, how they blamed it on something or someone else – all that means is that they and their colleagues at TransOcean and Halliburton are criminals who broke the law – of the United States – of the International Maritime Treaties and International Law – of the clauses in their contracts for insurance that would’ve otherwise covered it and of the laws in every nation around the world inclusively.

Hmmmm…….

Maybe they don’t know that yet.

– cricketdiane

Maybe they think that doesn’t count for them. And, that there is no government in the world or court of law that will condemn them as criminals. Maybe they think that since it is business, it doesn’t count the same. They would be wrong. Ask Enron. Ask Al-Qaeda. Ask Libya.

Hell, ask Rio Tinto – for that matter.

What happens to a person or a group of people who cruelly and sadistically torture animals and cause undue suffering with viciousness and disregard?

That is against the law. It is cruel and vicious actions to the consciousness of every animal, every sea turtle, every fish, every dolphin, every porpoise, every marine mammal and every bird, every squid, every whale, every sea creature of every kind to have been subjected sadistically to the poisons that the marine spill response corporation run by the oil companies and BP put into the Gulf.

And, then a multitude of these marine animals and birds died cruel, tortured and horrible deaths as a direct result of BP’s actions and their insistence on certain actions or refusals to act. They may as well have taken those animals in their own hands and shot them – it wouldn’t have been as cruel with the same torture and suffering as what they did in the ways they’ve done it. There is no right for BP to harvest oil anywhere in the world in the days to come. They are an unnecessary evil and have chosen to commit the most heinous of crimes. They’ve murdered our citizens at Texas City and Deepwater Horizon. They’ve tortured our marine wildlife to the point of death – and massively done so with intention and complete disregard for life.

They don’t need to be in our economic world anymore – they need to be in jail for the rest of their natural lives, not eating caviar and drinking champagne for having “gotten it over on us” and “gotten away with it” on our government.

The shareholders and board of directors members that sit behind these executives need to have every last asset frozen and be indicted for participating in it with their approval for these actions and for their continued financial backing for these illegal and criminal activities that have cause so many to suffer with such sadistic inhumane torture and that continue to be life-threatening to the people and wildlife even on this day.

– cricketdiane

***

And, no I will not be nice to a murdering criminal enterprise that has cheated every state where it has operated out of national resources that belonged to us all – and I will not show niceness to an organization that is sadistic and evil. If they and Charles Manson and the perpetrators of terrorism and murder – don’t deserve hate – then something is vastly wrong with our churches and our society.

Or do I need to get out the encyclopedias and explain exactly what those animals experienced when they were subjected to the crude oil and the crude oil mixed with the dispersants they chose to use? It was cruel and sadistic. Now, that’s about four times I’ve used that word – and I do mean it, this wasn’t an accident that wasn’t likely ever to happen. And, it will happen again.

They knew at BP and at the oil spill response companies what would be experienced by the marine animals and aquatic wildlife when they decided to use those chemicals and when they decided not to cap off the well in the first few days, using the method they are about to use now – the top kill method.

That is Satanic in its degree of evil.

And if our laws do not apply to that level of evil – then the law is neither just nor the rule of law.

If I don’t get to torture an animal to death without being charged and put in jail – then I sure don’t see why the BP executives and the decision-makers of the marine spill response corporation get to sadistically torture entire species by the hundreds to their death and get away with it.

– cricketdiane

***

Maybe we need to box up all the marine animals they’ve killed and send them to Parliament and the Queen so they can see what they think about it.

Just a thought.

And, as soon as the companies who hold the insurance on this deal realize that they can get out of those contracts because of the intentional misconduct of the participants at BP and TransOcean and Halliburton and every contractor hired by the marine spill response corporation – well – those funds, revenue streams and assets owned by those companies – including BP won’t be covered by those insurance contracts and they will claw back any and all of what they’ve already paid on them.

That might open the marketplace for players who have more intelligence and a great deal more conscience as corporate entities. It seems to be the only terms in the English language they understand – money and liability.

***

By the way – even though the dispersant was on the approved list by EPA – all that means when BP executives said so – was that they were admitting to the knowledge that appeared with that approval noting the level of toxicity as a poison to marine life and that the chemicals were known to be lethal to those animals when they chose to use them.

The EPA could’ve approved DDT – but it still offers no coverage when that DDT kills the people in a surrounding community or administers poisons to the “wild kingdom” in cruel, gruesome suffering and deaths. They chose to put poisons in the Gulf of Mexico and admitted to knowing what it would do to the marine life there – it’s no different than poisoning the neighbor’s dog which is also illegal and open to criminal prosecution in almost every country in the world – including the USA.

The only difference is the scale – which as far as I’m concerned makes most of the people at BP in the executive and management pool along with every director and every shareholder that backed them and approved them and financially supported them – all liable, criminal and financially bound to have their assets seized under the same laws that apply to the rest of us.

Yep – this is the American police left by the Republicans that have trained them, armed them, controlled them and had the police do it their way – and they still are –

Police taser autistic teen with heart condition

While Tony the BP man was being given a birthday party in Great Britain and the porpoises in the Gulf were suffocating to death in his crude oil & poisons.

Yeah, right – I hope Ronald Reagan and everyone of his administrative clan, along with the Bush twins and their gang of four – that ran America into the ground – took away the regulations that would’ve prevented the Gulf Oil Spill and the Texas City explosion and the Alaska pipeline spill and the mining deaths of all those men – among countless deaths from poisoned peanut butter and spinach and ground beef – and thousands of maimings and deaths of our finest and our brightest men and women in the military conquests that they started and did – hmmm . . . Yeah – I hope they are forced to watch as we pick America up and right her despite their cronies still trying to destroy her.

And then – I pray they will be chained in hell forever. And, I really mean that. But – I’m not going to put them there, they’ve already done that themselves.

And I’ve got better things to do including to do all that I can and all I can encourage others to do that will make their gasoline companies stocks worthless because gasoline becomes obsolete. It seems like a good use of time to me.

BP’s American entanglements

By Laurie Bennett

May 5, 2010 at 7:10am

Much as we’d like to write off BP as a British invader, the company is as American as the Honda Accords made in Ohio. (That is a lie – they were started in Iran with British money, my note.)

BP is not only a top energy provider to the U.S.; it is also a defense contractor. Its directors sit on the boards of major American companies. It is a contributor to American political campaigns and an employer of Washington lobbyists.

The (BP) company’s campaign contributions between 1989 and 2010 exceeded $6.2 million, with Republican candidates getting 70 percent of the funds.

http://news.muckety.com/2010/05/05/bps-american-entanglements/25951

BP’s energy contracts with the U.S. Defense Logistics Agency total more than $5 billion.

BP board members also have current and former connections to many U.S. businesses, including Citigroup, McKinsey & Company, General Electric  . . .

(Well, considering who out of that group I know defied the embargo on Iran – let’s see at least three out of three, including BP as one of the three  – not sure about McKinsey & Company, but I can look it up.)

My Note –

It was  Cameron who made the blowout preventer that failed on the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

Why is that idiot on bloomberg speaking for the oil industry – how much is he getting paid? – he was what the owner of the ship that rescued 115 people from the Deepwater Horizon when it had Dean Taylor – President and CEO of Tidewater. Apparently he can wear the US flag on his lapel and still not understand what it is to care about America and her citizens in comparison to his playmates in the oil industry that have murdered eleven Americans this time, fifteen Americans they murdered in 2005 and if I really get to counting . . . that is only the tip of the iceberg. Along with torturing and murdering animals in the poisoned waters of the Gulf of Mexico, BP and TransOcean and Halliburton and the other oil industry companions have done nothing but rape and pillage and plunder our country from Alaska to Texas to Oklahoma to the Gulf of Mexico and everywhere in between. And that man talking on bloomberg had no expression and looked like a mask with lips moving – even his voice failed to convey a thinking human being behind that mask of lies.

Photos of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico

http://mediagallery.usatoday.com/Oil-leak-in-the-Gulf-of-Mexico/G1559?loc=interstitialskip

Photo 36 of the 143 shows the executives of BP, TransOcean, Halliburton and Cameron taking the oath in front of Congress before opening their mouths and lying to the legislators breaking that oath and committing perjury.

On CNN just now – I was watching the protesters in front of the BP headquarters in Houston – I guess that’s where they were – you know what – they just need to go down to each state and each coastal city and sign a warrant for the bastards torturing and poisoning those marine animals, fish, birds, sea turtles, marine mammals and other aquatic wildlife – it is against the law to do that to any living thing.
