Could this be the answer to the fictional "fiscal cliff"

by Ziks511 - 11/15/12 8:09 AM

that Warren Buffet says isn't a problem.

"BP Plc is expected to pay a record U.S. criminal penalty and plead guilty to criminal misconduct in the 2010 Deepwater Horizon disaster through a plea deal reached with the Department of Justice that may be announced as soon as Thursday, according to sources familiar with discussions.

"Three sources, who spoke to Reuters on condition of anonymity, said BP would plead guilty in exchange for a waiver of future prosecution on the charges.

"BP confirmed it was in "advanced discussions" with the Department of Justice (DoJ) and the Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC)."

Thank God Obama is the President because the odds are Romney would have given them a pass, and allowed further dangerous and unsafe drilling in ever deeper waters. (Obama has allowed further drilling in deeper waters, despite suggestions to the contrary here.).

The issue is: do you let Corporations get away with activity which would be criminal if perpetrated by an individual? In Reactionary Rebarbative Republican--land, that would be a given. Nothing can be allowed to interfere with business turning the Earth into a toxic waste dump. Maybe interstellar travel is closer than we think, and the extremely wealthy are fixing to move.
