You have GOT to be kidding…

I was watching the news this evening when the newscaster stated that the British are upset with the US. Why? They’re upset because the president and Americans are exhibiting anti-British views and attitudes.

Yep. You read it right…. anti-British views and attitudes…

And how you may ask?

By being firm and coming down on BP in papers and in press conferences. Further, the comments and behavior are causing BP stock to tank, thus causing the suffering of British people by their losing money & personal investment.

OK… lemme say something here. I like British people. In general, I like them better than Americans. They’re tougher, they put up and shut up and basically they carry on in the face of adversity. But this… it’ pisses me off. Seriously pisses me off.

BP has earned every bit of harsh comments and criticism it’s gotten. It deserves more. Much more. An entire industry in this country has been ruined. An entire way of life has been destroyed. Wildlife is dying in droves and the fishing/clamming industry of the Gulf Coast region are ruined. Beaches and estuaries are trashed. The ecosystem of the Mississippi Delta is junked, possibly for forever.

I am so very angry, I feel like I could spit nails. Maybe our news agency got it wrong. But if not, let me be very, very clear. If the oil were washing up on the British Isles and their beaches and estuaries were destroyed and ruined, the company was an American owned company, well the British people would not hesitate one bit to criticize and demand answers and results. Retirements be damned. Oh the poor Americans, the darlings are so young and naive, they have no idea what’s important.

So… until folks have this type of thing happen to them, maybe they should just keep their mouth shut tight.

Sheesh!


OK… moving on before I completely come unglued…

You know… other than that… it’s a great day and has been an awesome week. My Fibro has been under control and the people in charge have been leaving me alone… so for the time being I’m doin’ ok.

I’m going to a birthday party tomorrow night. It’s cute… it’s an “Almost 30”  party. The darling gal is turning 26. Oh how I wish I could be 26 again!!! 🙂

Have a super weekend!!

Love y’all…

    Like I said on your other blog the US weakened position surely doesn’t help. Such nonsense really is annoying in the extreme and as I said before also: I’m so glad you’re feeling better, I bet you’ll be the life of the party!

    Bp is partly owned by British an Amoco owns another % and Americans hold another % so it’s not all British. I hope Obama kicks butt hard though and gets all help available to clean the mess up and git BP to stop the dang leak. I am so happy to hear you are having a good week. Have fun at the party!
