Are You One Of America’s ‘Small People’? I Am And Proud Of It!

The people who run BP are an arrogant bunch who seem to have a penchant for sticking their foot in their mouth when they speak.

First we had the CEO of BP, Tony Hayward, tell us that he can’t wait to gets his life back. Poor baby. Are we interfering with your rich lifestyle by bringing you back down to earth to have to deal with a disaster your company created?

The Chairman of BP, Carl-Henric Svanberg, who stated:

“I hear comments sometimes that large oil companies are greedy companies who don’t care. But that is not the case in BP. We care about the small people.”

But we just can’t  pick on BP, since we have our village of American-bred idiots to deal with, one of whom claims to be a U.S. Congressman. I am referring to Rep. Anh “Joseph” Cao (R-LA) who stated:

“Well, in the Asian culture we do things differently. During the Samurai days, we would give you a knife and ask you to commit harakiri.”

Not to be outdone by anyone, we have the American President stating:

“And I don’t sit around just talking to experts because this is a college seminar, we talk to these folks because they potentially… have the best answers, so I know whose ass to kick.”

No matter what your political affiliation, or what your personal feelings are about BP, the fact is that everyone has to share some of the blame on how these people act. It is the ‘small people’ who elected our current President and the folks in Congress. It is the ‘small people’ who made BP rich by buying its products.

Is anyone else frustrated by this entire mess and the way it is being handled?

Comments welcome.
