B.P.

There is not much to say about the oil company B.P. except that they will be paying for this mess in the gulf for a long,long time.
On Sunday when I came home from work my husband told me at coffee hour,after Service,the table he was sitting at was discussing this B.P. spill.Some one said that many people in South bridge are not taking their business to the local B.P. gas station because of this whole mess.
I can understand how people feel helpless and need to make a stand but some times thought needs to be contemplation before action is taken.
The gas station which sells B.P. oil and gas is owned by a private citizen trying to make a living for him and his employees,if you refuse to do business with this station you are really hurting the owner and workers at the station and making a very small statement to B.P. which is a world wide company not just an American company.
I'm sure there has to be a better way to make your feelings known then to hurt innocent people trying to make a living.
Take for example all the people working on the ship that caused this whole mess is it the offense of every employee aboard that ship or simply the incompetence of the people at the top that where not prepared to deal with something they should have been.
Anger and frustration can bring out the worst in people.
Maybe this is our wake up call that if you expect the government to make things right your barking up the wrong tree.We are a great nation not because we allowed our government to make all things right but because we solved our own problems.

Maybe it would be a good idea to buy stock in the company that manufactures, Dawn Dishwashing detergent?
