BP should not think that doing something unimpeachable will exonerate them from murder, just ask the family of the 11 victims from the Deepwater Horizon disaster.
Issue the Corporate Death Penalty to BP.
From “The Great Transformation” by Karl Polanyi as it appears in “Death of the Liberal Class” by Pulitzer Prize winning author Chris Hedges, page 1:
Since the airwaves are part of "the commons" it seems to me that a designated number of hours could be assigned for political debates. Each candidate could be alotted an equal amount of time to present their serious proposals, within a limited span of time (say 6 months) before the election. NO political ads would be allowed. This would take the huge cost of advertizing out of the equation; remove the need for campaign budgets, and focus the campaign on logical, serious discussion.

Something must be done about the clearing of the rain-forrest. Not enough plants to digest the co2 in the air.

Democracy? Not in the good ole U.S. of NRA. How much will its people tolerate before they revolt? Apparently one hell of a lot. Is it stupidity? Is it ignorance? Is it fear? Is it apathy? Is it the absence of a charismatic, vigorous, leader? All of these?
Once again, a mob screams out in support of its cruci-fictions.
Instead of President Obama, who has worked against all odds for the good of everyone in what used to be the United States of America, they want a well known tax criminal, Mitt Romney.
This time, the story ends differently.
This time, it's Pharaoh's turn to walk.
