    Who gets this money?  The families of the dead?  The folks on the Gulf who were devastated by this?  The government?

    I could eat a bowl of alphabet soup and shit a better argument than that.

    •  The government I would imagine . .. (0+ / 0-)

      After all, didn't BP already contribute something like $20 billion to compensate the other victims, such as those you mention?

      Or, more precisely, promise to pay that amount?  (IIRC, after shelling out about 1/40th of that amount, they found some loophole to stop any further reimbursements .. . )
