    This useless cunt gets $18 million for running BP into the ground and poisoning the Gulf? Nice.

    If there’s anybody left who’s delusional enough to think that corporate Amerikkka is some kind of meritocracy based on performance, this should help snap them back to reality. It’s a circle jerk of psychopaths.

    BP is a UK company…

  3. Jacknasty says

    It’s 40% UK owned and 39% US owned. It trades on the New York Stock Exchange as BP, having shed the increasingly inaccurate “British” Petroleum name several years ago.

    As if your pedantic complaint refuted anything said up above, to begin with.

    But fine – instead of merely branding American capitalism as a corporate circle jerk of psychopaths, let’s simply expand the definition to include all multinational corporations.

    I’m fine with that!

    he should give his money to all those fishermen who’s livelihoods have been destroyed.

    This means nothing. This problem is bigger than this self important scumbag. Merely cosmetic to deflect criticism and public condemnation, like AIG changing its name.

    Given that he’s a self-serving tool, he should have done this months ago. Now he’s probably just hoping to avoid personal lawsuits and snuggle with his golden parachute in his clueless castle.

    may the spirits of all the dead birds and other animals visit him in his sleep. every minute.

    BP employs more Americans than most other energy companies in the U.S.; many of whom live on the gulf coast. (Their American headquarters are in Houston, TX) I’ve read that an American will probably take over as CEO.

    What makes so many people hate this man and so many love Steve Jobs even though they are separated morally by the tinniest margin? I guess iPods dont kill defenceless sea birds..

    So much hate is due to the ignorance about the ‘B’ in the company name, its sad really and shows the US is still far from over its colonial touchiness.

    >the ‘B’ in the company name

    No, the hate is due to the fact this incompetent twat is getting paid millions of dollars for not only fucking up his own company royally, but for causing arguably the single worst manmade environmental catastrophe in the history of the world.

    Call us when Steve Jobs engages in cost cutting stupidity which results in an accident that pours millions of gallons of crude oil into the Gulf, kills an untold multitude of wildlife, goes sailing on his yacht and then whines about wanting his life back. All while collecting an obscene salary as a reward for his gross incompetence.

    If you’re too stupid to make out the glaring moral difference between these two men, please do yourself an enormous favor and shut the fuck up.
