If you want to know who is going to pay for the oil spill and zillions of damage the big oil company BP caused just look at what you are paying at the pump TODAY and then check it again NEXT WEEK...There is your answer. I rest my case.

Well, BP is only liable for $75 million..according to our laws.
Congress is considering changing that even though it's forbidden by our constitution.

I think the damage will be well above $75 million.

There's a lot of things forbidden by our constitution that we now see as normal practice. It hasn't stopped them before and it won't stop them now.

Bush did not let it stop him. Screw the big deals Bush made with BP. BP is going to pay.

I was wondering if there are any good environmental organizations taking donations that will be helping to clean up the spill. Not far left whacko groups but honest ones that do really help to clean up the environment. I want any money I give going to actual cleaning not political activism.
