This being the same BP that recieved a waiver from a required enviromental impact study just over a year ago... and for re. very same offshore rig that blew- and typical of Obama, he's been on the take for years:
Minimum Wage paycheckd going out to thousands of Government workers, thanks to Arnold. Arnold belives he needs to pay people for what they're worth.
More pay cuts coming, more Mexicans coming, more misery coming, leave before the 9.9 hits.

You're delusional. All of those states are in far better financial shape than California because of Sacramento's idiotic planning("We don't need any extra money"). It must be all the marijuana you smoked that made you so delusional. And don't try to deny it. Until the earthquakes this year, marijuana was the only thing that ever happened in Humboldt County.
Dems: This is how to spell receive. I posted this 3 times now and you still don't know how to spell a word you should have learned to spell in the Third Grade. Funny that you never posted that Bush and Cheney were on the take. Remember, Cheney and his connection to an oil company? One of the posters gave an excellent review of the congressmen that received money from big oil. Most were Republicans.
The "people" who control corporations are not often "mom and pop" investors. I'm sure that the same is true of the people who control CVX and BP. In any case, the top executives at BP made some terrible mistakes that are having tragic consequences for millions of Gulf Coast residents, as well as hundreds, if not thousands, of area businesses.
Also, just for the record, I should mention that I am an oil investor who has held CVX and BP shares. I'm currently indirectly invested through the Petroleum and Resources CEF. Unlike you, though, I don't take a "my industry right of wrong" attitude. The oil companies pushed for lax regulation, and now I'm literally forced to pay the price for their malignant stupidity.
Anyone who takes their news from a website called Reaganite Republican Resistance is clearly a brainwashed FOOL. I fear for the future of our country when such a large portion of the population waits for someone the likes of Sarah Palin or Glenn Beck to tell them what to think, rather than think for themselves. Just a bunch of soulless robots now.
It's also unfortunate we can't talk about CVX on the CVX board.
I agree 100%. I am appaled at how posters gobble up stories on Yahoo and Google and not really analyze the content. Obama would have had to be 29 years old when he received money from BP. If the poster would have checked further, he/she would have found that there were many Republicans that received large donations from oil companies.
