Oil Spill

So with all the uproar in the gulf about the big BP oil spill, to be honest everyone seems to be going a little crazy. I most definitely agree more should have been done sooner. I will be the first to say that more people should have stepped up and helped. More “celebrities” should have cared enough to help out. These same “celebrities” are the ones that donated millions and millions of dollars to Haiti when they had their disaster. Now, their own country has a disaster that is killing hundreds of animals and putting hundreds out of work. I think that some have finally stepped up to help, I guess it is better late than never right? Still the help from these people has not come close to touching what they did for other countries. I personally think it is sad and pathetic. Everyone is on this whole boycott BP wagon, well I do understand there should have been more safety concerns and I’m definitely not on BP’s side, but what is going to come from us boycotting BP? More people out of work. More economy problems. Go ahead and boycott the BP station. All you are doing is putting more pressure on mom & pop that own the store. They make less money and can’t pay their bills. More government help. More taxes. Yes, lets boycott BP. That’s stupid. If you think boycotting someone will help then why don’t we boycott the ones that refuse to help. Boycott the person that sent a million dollars to Haiti but has turned their back on their own country. Don’t buy that new CD that just came out or don’t go see that new movie that came out last week. Little bit harder to do isn’t it? Well if you want to boycott someone then that is who should be boycotted. BP should take responsibility yes, but not that way. The President pretty much made it clear that they need to do something to help the people that are losing jobs because of this disaster. President Obama and Vice President Biden made sure that BP understood they need to set up a fund for the Gulf. BP did. Great. Wait, not great. Now everyone is all over Obama and Biden for being “thugs” and “forcing” BP to set up the funds. COME ON PEOPLE! What do you want, them to help or not? I have never been a big fan of this current administration but they helped. They used their positions as the leaders of this country and stood up to BP and yes practically forced them to set up funds for us. For us. For the same people that are saying they shouldn’t have done it that way. OK then if you disagree with it feel free to leave your money for someone else and you can get it some other way. The right way. I don’t see a problem at all with they way they handled the situation. Better late than never right? Yes as the leader of our country more should have been done sooner but at least we have a start. We have a start with the help in the form of money. Now lets just get that oil cleaned up. Please.
