      I can refer you to a book by my famous author John Grisham called The Appeal. You want to talk about Oil justice, go and talk to the folks in Alaska.

      The Bush administration reduced their initial judgment to just $500 million from $5 billion. No one is fighting tooth and nail for that. Americans are driving and buying gas like always.

      And you want to talk about Justice in Ecuador or Nigeria, give me a freaking break. So far the lawsuit in Ecuador has been more than 10yrs and they have already claimed it to be political.

      If you think someone in the US is going to enforce such judgment, you are living on a different planet. unless i see Americans rise up like they did with the AIG bailout, this is just talking points memo.
      60 minutes wont fight for anything or continue to report on this for weeks and years in order to push these companies...its just one news for one day
