Schoolyard Bullying at its Worst!
Would you give away twenty billion dollars out of the kindness of your heart? What if someone was holding their boot to your throat, as our administration said they were going to do to BP? When the BP executives met with the Obama Administration last week, they came out of the meeting with a plan to give away twenty billion dollars to an escrow account controlled completely by the administration. Where’s the money going? Why did they give it away? What were they told that made them feel as if they didn’t have a choice? They were already complying with every demand the administration had made up to that point. This was unethical at best and illegal at worst. Technically, the shareholders of BP stocks could sue the company for giving away the money. What’s your opinion? -Julie
