Baldwin County Alabama School Board to sue BP for tens of millions for Gulf Of Mexico Oil Disaster… because they need money.

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Thursday, January 17, 2013

Alabamians complain about those whom they assert are lazy, shiftless, good-for-nothings who refuse to make any effort to work for a living, and then, according to them, mooch off the public dole, or sue others to survive.

Alabama has a reputation as being a “tort reform Hell,” for the outlandish awards given by juries.

And yet, the state does the same thing. Not only is that ironic, what’s even more ironic about it all is that the Mobile/Baldwin county area is a Republican stronghole… er, stronghold. Rather than raise taxes, shift resources or lower costs to pay for public services, they sue. It’s fiscal mismanagement at it’s worst.

Can you smell the hypocrisy cooking?

BAY MINETTE, Alabama – The Baldwin County school board voted unanimously tonight to present a claim to BP asking for an undisclosed amount of money to make up for tax revenues lost as a result of the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

Citing attorney-client privilege, school officials would not say how much money they are seeking.

But, said board attorney Scotty Lewis, “It will be a significant seven-figure claim.”

In its resolution, the board voted to Read the rest of this entry »

Out of sight, out of mind? Research Scientist finds Gulf of Mexico bottom dead

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Monday, February 21, 2011

BIG OIL companies – in this instance and most notably BP – are quick to “remind” their consuming public that they are the “good guys” that always wear white and that they our “knight in shining armor coming to your emotional rescue.”

However, having never been one to believe in conspiracy theory, or genuine collusion, yet in all honesty, one must acknowledge that BIG OIL has significant self interest called stock held by Wall Street shareholders. Those are the masters to whom they are loyal… NOT the American people.

Scientist finds Gulf bottom still oily, dead

By Seth Borenstein, AP Science Writer – Sat Feb 19, 8:53 pm ET

WASHINGTON – Oil from the BP spill remains stuck on the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico, according to a top scientist’s video and slides that she says demonstrate the oil isn’t degrading as hoped and has decimated life on parts of the sea floor.

That report is at odds with …Click HERE to read if we’re REALLY being deceived about this careless tragedy…

AL Gov. Bob Riley to BP: No lawsuit waiver on final oil spill claims

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Wednesday, December 15, 2010

Does it come as any surprise that the Multinational Corporation BP has no allegiance or loyalty to anyone or anything save their profit, executive compensation and shareholder payouts?

And yet – as astute observers note – politics makes strange bedfellows. Appointed by President Obama, Administrator Feinberg is being paid by BP in excess of $10 Million annually. But… would Democrats have expected this kind of “favor for the people” from their president?

(Reuters Legal) – There has never been anything quite like Kenneth Feinberg’s $20 billion Gulf Coast Claims Facility. Established to compensate victims of the BP Plc(BP.L) oil disaster, it essentially invests one man with full power over how the money is distributed, while he is being paid by the company and unsupervised by any government body.

Alabama Gov. Bob Riley has urged BP PLC and President Barack Obama to make sure that Gulf Coast residents don’t have to sign liability waivers to accept claims payments.

Oil spill claims czar Ken Feinberg recently launched the second stage of his claims process, in which he will offer people final settlements or interim quarterly payments.

The final settlements require the claimant to Read the rest of this entry »

“BP is in control of that.”

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Friday, June 25, 2010

In response to my 0845 phone call, Gov. Riley’s ofc called: AL NG “troops are to assist citizens on Gulf Coast that are having troubles filing claims w BP.

They are not helping clean-up.

Riley has “no plans to activate” AL NG troops, even knowing BP will foot the bill wholly.

His office did say however, that “All options are on the table.”

AL NG troops now assisting are “going door to door to get information” from residents to facilitate a “very complex claims process.”

Gov. Riley has “no plans to declare state of emergency, or disaster.”

Claiming that declaring a state of emergency or disaster “could cause conflict,” the governor’s office said, “BP is in control of that.”
