The BP company (the fourth wealthiest corporation in the world, turns out) has repeatedly stated through its current president that they are “responsible” and will “pay any ‘legitimate’ claims” for damages. The use of the word “legitimate” gives one cause for concern, in my opinion, and inspires me to agree with former Secretary of Labor under Bill Clinton that BP should be placed into temporary receivership by the U.S. government to make sure that every single dollar of cost is paid by this greed-driven and perhaps corrupt (at least in collusion with the GOP and MMS from 2001 through 2008) enterprise. Also of concern, in terms of determining the company’s true intentions, is the spectacle deliberately staged for TV cameras during President Obama’s second visit, where BP hired hundreds of workers about two hours before the event; issued them each brightly colored paper hazard garments to wear; told them not to talk to ANYONE, especially any reporters; and then told them all to “stand down” (quit working) as soon as the presidential motorcade was out of sight. A close eye has to be kept on these dollar-driven greedy-guts or they will try to fudge results and skip out on the clean-up and repair of our ecological systems—based on their history and their patterns thus far. The website whitehouse.gov/Deepwater-BP-Oil-Spill gives a chronological report on all actions taken and on ongoing efforts.
