    there, idiot.

    Torture is for the weak. After all, it is just extended wheedling.

    •  Number Fail (0+ / 0-)

      BP is shown as pulling in 10, 15, even $20 billion per quarter for years.  

      Chart on Page 1 shows annual numbers and BP at a bit over $20 billion in 2006.  All other years are less.

      Chart on Page 4 shows quarterly numbers and BP at ~ $10 billion in 2008 Q4.  All other quarters are less.

      So either you can't tell the difference between annual and quarterly or you can't tell the difference between $10 billion and $20 billion.

      Which is it?  Inquiring minds want to know!

      •  First I had to find the charts (and the data (0+ / 0-)

        base) for you, then I had to point out that there was more than one chart there and now I'm supposed to teach you how to read charts?  Hell with that.  You are as much a 'scientist' as a bought and paid for climate change denialist.  

        Go ahead and continue to defend the poor oppressed profit-above-all upper management of BP and their 'right' to lawyer up and continue to clutch their parts in their criminal company in whatever pieces you seem to think would would absolve them of liability.   It's a stupid position to take but whatever floats yer boat.
