If this was their best year, what the hell would a bad year look like?

The offshore drilling firm responsible for running the Deepwater Horizon rig has given its top executives bonuses for its “best year” for safety.

Transocean was blamed along with BP and Halliburton after last year’s massive spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Eleven workers, nine of whom worked for Transocean, died when the Deepwater Horizon exploded almost a year ago. But Transocean said there had been a drop in the rate of recorded incidents and also in their potential severity.

    #40 I’m afraid it was on the tube most likely in state only. I tried a search and came up with where he didn’t sign a law that would bar abortion as state funded benefit in this state but that still allowed it to become law.

    Okay I didn’t find it on YouTube. I can’t prove anything got implemented either because it was after a scandal and sometimes people say things that don’t happen.

    That combined with the earlier article makes it clear that Planned Parenthood was once highly favored and is no longer in favor with local lawmakers.

    Welcome to the free market. If you have invested in oil stocks, you are as guilty as the executives.

    Delusions of grandeur
    The best part is that most likely that they are convinced that they have “earned” and deserve the bonuses
    I am no fan of unions – yet you wonder why union people often hate the people “on the top floor”
    The recipients should be put in jail
    Instead they will promote themselves with new titles – sans responsibility to any victims of the old spill and you guessed it – more bonus

    #43–do-ill==regardless of whatever the specifics in one particular case may be, do YOU in general think that poor women should have access to reproductive medical advice or not?

    Alfie the TeaBag Douche Talking Point Spam Bot: because many thoughtful poor people don’t want to bring their kiddies into a world where the political culture of those who think they are taxed too much defund education, primary healthcare, home heating, and on and on. Having a kiddie is irresponsible if you aren’t rich enough to provide the basics you think are necessary. Too many black people are not educated enough to argue this on a theoretical basis but their spidey sense informs them well enough leading to this result.

    Course, the earth has too many people already. Too bad well informed people don’t think the same way about cars?

    I once had 5 cars, one boat, one airplane. No kids. The chink in the armor, was one wife. Ha, ha.

    Alfie, what about freeloading babies? Should we save them, too? Or only the well-off ones?

  8. Olo Baggins of Bywater says:

    FYI there is no market for brown babies from urban areas.

    What’s it all about, Alfie?
