I just blew my lid after hearing a US Government spokesman on TV saying that the BP boss had committed a PR gaffe by being seen on a boat with his son. "I think we can all conclude what his priorities are" said the spokesman.
Point 1 - f*** you Mr Spokesman, and don't presume to speak for me. "I think we can all conclude...?" f*** you.
Point 2 - What exactly do they want him to do in the moments he has with his family? Tossers. Maybe they'll say time spent taking a shit could have been time spent at the well-head.
Interesting to see what infuriates people in this crisis. Personally me it's the environment being ruined by the planet's inhabitants' (most of them) greed, but to each their own...Personally I can't see the details, they're all covered in oil. But if you want to focus on them, feel free.
Noone is ever going to question what the exploitation of oil costs this planet. Noone's going to talk about the waste of resources we were supposed to use wisely, because they're not renewable. Noone is ever going to question their lifestyles. Noone is ever going to question why we still allow this to happen and greedy cretins to be in charge of the world's direction. Most of them male, incidentally.
When the wiseman points at the spill, the idiot looks at the yacht.
No offense but there might be bigger reasons to be upset...If I had kids, that's not Obama's handicap I'd be thinking about. ("Black AND handicapped? Jesus".)
Also, I can totally see how being seen on a boat could be seen as a touch insensitive by the many people who can't go sailing for pleasure anymore and even by the people who depend on the sea to make a living and feed their family. If you can't see that Peter, it's that Morrissey has really had a bad influence on you... And I laugh, but it's not really funny.
Have a nice w.e with your kids.
