...and don't let the door hit you in the ass on your way out.

After a reported 1 Million Pound (that's WAY more than dollars) and a half-a-million pound yearly pension, Tony "Turd-Bucket" Hayward has resigned as president of BP. If you haven't guessed, I hate this guy. That he gets this kind of money from BP to QUIT is just mind-boggling. If it were up to me, this guy would be out with a bucket and sand shovel scooping-up his own fucking mess. The company he heads up loses $17.5 million and he gets a milllion pounds and a hefty pension. Son-of-a-bitch, I am in the wrong line of work. What this guy did was criminal, and he gets off with this HUGE settlement. THIS is why we get so excited when some over-privileged, entitled brat like Lilo actually gets sent to the slammer.

Before BP royally fucked-up and flooded the Gulf with oil, I thought maybe if it decreased our dependence on foreign oil, off-shore oil drilling might be O.K. PROVIDED it was done RESPONSIBLY. What a naive moron I was -- corporate and responsible are just two words that don't seem to mix. BP has successfully proven to me that off-shore drilling is ALWAYS a bad idea because corporations cannot be trusted to do the legal, morally-responsible thing. Ask me about off-shore drilling today (or tomorrow, for that matter) and you will get a big: "Hell no!"

All those Americans on the Gulf coast trying to earn and honest living dependent upon the Gulf, already having had the crap knocked out of them by Hurricane Katrina, now having their livelihoods and their futures destroyed by this company are having to BEG for money -- and Tony Hayward gets a freaking bonus??? Where is my form to resign from the human race? I am filling it out today.


  1. typo--I think it was a 17.5 billion loss. It is at least nice to know that US companies aren't the only idiots in the world that reward executive failure.

  2. Yup -- should be billion. Seventeen freakin' billion.

  3. Seventeen and a freakin' HALF billion!
