Upon further review...

The following exchange of comments took place Monday in regard to my post about Gordon Brown's complicity in the release of the Lockerbee mastermind.

And just why are you letting BP off the hook? I might just cancel my sunny yellow credit card, and take my oil business elsewhere.


Letting BP off the hook? By no means! I just hadn't considered them anywhere near as culpable as Old Gordo.

What BP did was corrupt and immoral. But Brown is entrusted with the safety and well-being of the nation. Therefore, for him to do something so flagrantly immoral is unconscionable.

BP SHOULD be called to task for their complicity. Feel free to shelve the sunny yellow card.

The more I've thought about it, the more I'm of the opinion that I WAS remiss in not addressing the immorality of British Petroleum for their part in this scandal.

The problem with multi-national corporations is that they put more stock in the 'multi' than in the 'national'. BP couldn't give two shits about Great Britain and its future. They, like all of the other looters and plunderers who seem to have taken over in the corporate world, are too busy looking forward to the great One-World Socialist Utopia they have in store for us to be bothered with little niggling issues like the security of their homeland.

We are actually living Atlas Shrugged. It's mind-blowing.
