BP Oil Spill: The Lies and Deception of a Corporation


Today we'll connect the dots from Alaska, to Nigeria, to the Gulf of Mexico. The common denominator? The product, oil, and the connection of the producer to the consumer.

It's time to recognize the behavior patterns by corporations. What they are they consistently allowed to get away with?

This oil spill event is a good opportunity to focus in all the little moving parts. How and why did it happen? Why does it continue to keep happening?

We give them a pass because they need to make extraordinary profits to make the shareholders happy. Else the shareholders start complaining like a really old, rusty, wheelbarrow.

In turn, we want the product on the cheap and we want it guilt-free. Please mainstream media, reinforce the idea that nothing bad is going on, so that I have a clean conscious, so that I don't have to do anything, and I can go about my merry way.

These corporations and executives will only do it, if they can get away with it.
