Washington Post Columnist: Look closely at BP's logo -- "It's a toxic, flesh-eating spore"

Taking a hard line on BP, Washington Post, June 16, 2010:

Look closely at [BP's] logo. That's no environmental green and sunny yellow circle. It's a toxic, flesh-eating spore. Just touching one of their slimy nozzles ought to be enough to make you hurl.

  • A *BOYCOTT*? Capital punishment would be more appropriate: What is the value of God's gift to man and beast? I'd say it's the gift of life and that that gift is invaluable.

    When I calm down, I'll surely agree to 'life-for-life' without parole. Hundreds of thousands of people will be dead as a result of the negligence or purposeful action of BP. The Washington Post knows how to juggle and mingle the words until the crime seems like a childs prank. I don't buy it, and the boycott is a great idea, but just the beginning.

    But the Government still pays BP for their oil..so I am not sure BP will even feel a boycott.

    Remember,just a couple of cents less a gallon,will make people forget about the heinous act BP spewed upon the world.

    Thank you.

  • You don't understand the full import, I think.

    The majority of those posting here, IMHO, are fully aware that BP is just the tail of the snake: We need to reach the head of the snake to truly destroy the beast.

    The head consists of banking cartels -- the upper level of international bankers, the Vatican and Queen Elizabeth II.

    Once the majority of citizens learn about the news they're not getting, and finally are able to circumvent those blocks, or censors -- it will be a different story.

    I believe a few cents less for oil per gallon won't win-over their priorities, and I believe the wellbeing of their families will take "the prize."

    Now, the one thing that I did want to mention to you, Amy, that’s occurred in most investigations, back even in the Watergate days, people said, "follow the money." And that’s correct. In this case, you’ve got to follow the money. Who saves money by using these toxic dispersants? Well, it’s BP. But then the next question—I’ve only seen one article that describes it—who owns BP? And I think when you look and see who owns BP, you find that it’s the majority ownership, a billion shares, is a company called BlackRock that was created, owned and run by a gentleman named Larry Fink. And Vanity Fair just did recently an article about Mr. Fink and his connections with Mr. Geithner, Mr. Summers and others in the administration. So I think what’s needed, we now know that there’s a cover-up. Dispersants are being used. Congress, at least three Congress folks—Congressman Markey, Congressman Nadler and Senator Mikulski—are on the case. And I think the media now has to follow the money, just as they did in Watergate, and tell the American people who’s getting money for poisoning the millions of people in the Gulf. - Hugh Kaufman to Amy Goodman on DemocracyNow

    is that the hole is clogged?
    I'm sorry for you and I come every day on this site.

    OMG! SOMEone said it--and at WaPo! The logo makes you HURL? Oh, yes, brother, it does. Every time I pass one of their filthy, p-YUKEE green gas stations I give them the one-finger salute. Unfortunately, over the last ten years, Beyond Polluted have bought up the small, rural gas stations in my neck of the woods. It's hard to avoid them, but so far, so good! Let them ROT! Drown them in Corexit! Waterboard them in crude! Oh, the thinks you can think! (apologies to Seus!) We're dead anyway, we got NOTHING to lose.
