Suspend British Petroleum’s Gulf Leases, again…

It was over four years ago that British Petroleum unleashed their disaster in the Gulf Coast and for four years we’ve all been hearing about how BP will not rest until they “make it right” for the Gulf and all affected by the spilled oil from the Deepwater Horizon explosion that killed eleven people and…

Remembering…

To the families that lost loved ones that day and to the families that lost loved ones after, to all the people who make their living off that water, the business owners and the families along the Gulf Coast…still thinking about and wishing you the best. To BP who is still trying to weasel their…

Fines vs. Penalties

So, today’s the day. The big civil trial in New Orleans: BP vs. the world with all the lawyers, guns and money…all that kinda shit. Course, both the government and British Petroleum been working hard, meeting and organizing and negotiating to try to find a settlement, a way out of this whole trial mess, come…

Reality is what you pay for…
