Thumbs up The oil spill: A success story for tort reform - 06-15-2010, 01:13 PM

We've read in the lie-beral MSM that
Quote:
To save time and drilling costs, BP took "shortcuts" that may have led to the oil rig explosion and the spill in the Gulf of Mexico, according to a letter released Monday by two House Democrats leading an investigation of the disaster.
BP was free to make rational cost-control decisions because of its $75 million liability limit, which protected it from constantly having to look over its shoulder for money-grubbing tort lawyers.

Now, however, the Obamunists want to undo a good thing and raise the liability limit, thereby turning America into a dictatorship by the personal-injury bar. Requiring companies to be liable for their own mistakes will distort the market and undo the culture of personal responsibility that we Republicans prize.

Even worse, the Lie-bertarians oppose liability limits, and they also believe in equal "rights" for sodomite "marriage." Therefore, any opposition to tort reform is a vote for sodomite special privileges.


This church is dedicated to preaching True Christianity™ and the King James Bible exactly as they are, with no alterations to make them more politically correct for modern liberals. If you think that we've misquoted or twisted Scripture or quoted any verse out of context, please explain in detail how we've done so. Otherwise, if what you read on this site offends you, then you're offended by Almighty God and His Word, not by us.

I'm for tort reform as much as the next Christian, but are you sure that fire spewing monster rising out of the sea doesn't have seven horns? And I understand that British Petroleum sits on many waters.

This is the first step to communism, let me tell you. Now, I know I don't have any formal educational background in politics, corporate law, or business, but I do consider myself an expert on this. If they start essentially outlawing a corporation's right to cut costs, they will make it unable to turn a profit. If they cannot turn a profit, they will go out of business.

Who will then provide food, clothing, entertainment, essential needs, shelter, etc? No one. Then the government steps in. The government will provide everything.

Tort Reform is a strike against Communism! If you are against it, you are a Communist. Simple as that.

Amen, Pastor Isaac, I couldn't agree more with your post.

Fortunately, oil company CEOs have a friend from Alaska, Senator Lisa Murkowski:

Quote:
Murkowski Blocks Oil Spill Liability Cap Increase

Just now, as expected, Robert Menendez sought unanimous consent for the Big Oil Bailout Prevention Liability Act of 2010, which would raise the liability cap on oil spills from $75 million up to $10 billion. And it would have surely passed. Big Oil needed one Senator to raise an objection and fend off those who want fair compensation for people unwittingly affected by the underwater gusher in the Gulf and other disasters in the future. And they found her in Lisa Murkowski...

...“I do think we need to look at the liability cap, but we need to be careful of unintended consequences of just picking a number,” she concluded. And she actually tried to turn this into a fight for the little guy, saying that smaller oil producers wouldn’t be able to get insurance with that kind of liability cap, and that it should be structured in a way that “doesn’t give big oil a monopoly over the entire OCS (Outer Continental Shelf).”
As you can see from the above, Senator Murkowski is fighting for the little guy. She doesn't want to give Big Oil a monopoly (even though we already have it). Rather, she wants to encourage mom-and-pop oil companies, who obviously couldn't afford a $10 billion liability limit. I know for sure that my mom and pop couldn't have afforded anything that cost $10 billion. In fact, they couldn't even afford to buy me a new pair of shoes, so I was forced to wear Salvation Army hand-me-downs. That's why when they got cancer years later (when I was already a billionaire) and came to me begging for money for chemotherapy, I instead sent them a used pair of shoes. Anyway, it's their fault they got cancer - they should have had better sense than to drink well water after my company built a toxic waste dump just upstream from their farm.

But I digress. I think it's really unfair that private companies face any legal liability whatsoever. Mom-and-pop businesses like Goldman-Sachs, Boeing, Halliburton, Enron, Exxon-Mobil, etc, will have to shutter their doors if they continue to face frivolous lawsuits from people who have been bankrupted and/or poisoned by their products. Indeed, all this harassment is why mom-and-pop businessmen like me have to get second passports in countries with no extradition laws, and keep our funds in Switzerland and the Cayman Islands.


"Whoops!" Mom-and-pop oil refinery in Texas.

Getting back to the issue at hand - where in the Constitution does it say that you can't dump oil into the ocean? Our founding fathers would be appalled if they knew that a mom-and-pop business like BP would be forced to pay $75 million for shutting down the entire Gulf of Mexico fishing and tourism industries.

Actually, it's not really BP that shut down the fishing industry. Rather, it's Big Government. The terrorist EPA and FDA are trying to destroy the seafood industry. There's absolutely nothing wrong with those oil-soaked fish and shrimp - all you need to do is wash them off, and they're fine. That petroleum taste kind of grows on you.

And as for the tourists, I see no reason why they shouldn't continue to enjoy the Gulf Coast. Black sand beaches in Hawaii continue to draw visitors:


Hawaii

What difference does it make if the beach sand is naturally black, or artificially colored? Lying on the newly-black Gulf Coast sand is perfectly safe, as long as you wear a wetsuit and don't strike a match.


Florida

In short, I think it's time for the federal government to get out of the way, and let the free market reign. Of course, a few trillion in bailout money to mom-and-pop companies like mine would help to grease the wheels of the economy.


Praise Jesus!

I am still fascinated by the fact that they want me to believe it is all real. I called my cousin yesterday who lives in the area and he told me everything was just fine. No signs of oil spill or whatever. My cousin reads the KJV1611 Bible so how can you doubt such a noble man?

I'm not sure what all those people down the gulf are worried about. They're getting free oil aren't they?

Brother Bathfire, are you sure the oil spill did happen? I am still having serious doubts.
