Now is not the time for American anger to cease....

BP and our friends across the pond are angry....

BP is full of SHIT and LIARS to many Americans HERE....

I am sorry that your stock portfolios or pensions are taking a hit, across the pond.  Look at what this company did to a large part of the United States of America...Look at what happened to FAMILIES HERE....

And the oil is still gushing and we don't know what the final tally of damage will be....

Stop crying BP......We don't have any PITY PARTIES HERE FOR YOU...

I am sorry.

I don't CARE.

I don't give a MICKEY FICKEY for how BP is weeping across the pond.

Barack Obama, Our President, I don't expect him to give a BOO FUCKING HOO on BP and its problems, either, with the exception of setting up a court sponsored PAYMENT PLAN to the United States of America.

BP put itself in this position.

BP's well blew, not yours, mine's or ours, but BP.

BP gotta take the HEAT and PAY UP.

The new Prime Minister is now taking heat across the pond because people are angry at their stock portfolios and pensions tanking.  (sound familiar....)

David Cameron was under mounting pressure last night to stand up for British interests and stop BP being 'thrown to the wolves'.

The Prime Minister caused dismay by appearing to side with President Obama as another £5billion was wiped off the value of BP shares in the escalating row over the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.

In his first response to the crisis, Mr Cameron failed to back demands from other senior Tories, including London Mayor Boris Johnson, for an end to 'anti-British rhetoric, buckpassing and name-calling' by the U.S.

Anti-British rhetoric?  What about BP LYING to this country on the real deal with that oil spill?  What about BP not paying folks down in the Gulf Coast Region?  And what about a gas bag of a CEO who has the fucking NERVE to say, "...I want my life back...", while in the hundreds of thousands are being affected in THEIR LIVES....

The HELL with BP and the PLANE they flew over here on!!!  I want this country to prosecute, seize assets, freeze assets, whatever is necessary to make THIS COUNTRY WHOLE.  BP think they are just going to cap and move on the United States of America?  Barack Obama, you are from Chicago, you know the deal, I HOPE YOU ARE ON THIS....

To my friends across the pond, this is not about you, this is about CORPORATE GREED and CORRUPTION.  It happens on both sides of the pond.

And now some TRUTH is coming OUT!!!  The spill is bigger than anyone would IMAGINE!!!  Shit, I could have told you that WITHOUT experts...

The Deepwater Horizon well has most likely spewed 25,000 to 30,000 barrels of oil a day, more than previously estimated, according to a group of scientists appointed by the federal government to study video of the dark geyser at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico.

The new estimate suggests that, if the flow has been more or less consistent since the April 20 blowout, approximately 1.3 million to 1.5 million barrels, or 53.6 million to 64.3 million gallons, of oil have emerged from the well. That is roughly five to six times the amount spilled in Alaskan waters in 1989 by the Exxon Valdez.

A FAR CRY from the original 1,000 barrels a day gushing in the Gulf.

From Keith Olbermann on BP crying:

BP and U.K. worried about stock portfolios and pensions.  Yes, I feel that, but what BP has done here and their response to the American Public is unforgettable.  And House Minority Leader John Boehner?  I don't know ANY REPUBLICAN who feels that WE should pay for what BP did.  That we should BAIL THEM OUT.  Out of touch, much?

Lastly, we all KNOW that BP is not going to pay for every thing.  They are NOT.  And they are lawyering up as I type.  Remember, we, Americans have NO MALICE towards British subjects.  But just as BP is not going to make us whole and we are going to be stuck with a bill, U.K. you may have to look to your government to deal with any STOCK OR PENSION repercussions, that YOU don't like.

Keepin' it real....

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
