Some pundits, surely with major oil stock holdings are crying foul about Obama's response.

So I am responding to many article entries in major newspapers, and twisted opinions by pundits on the cables that say in so many words, "Obama doesn't care about oil stockholders". Well, sorry assholes, but we warned you about these dirty industries and you still chose the wrong stock.

So this is your own damn fault. When it comes to gambling, you win some, you loose some. And on this one, you just plain crapped, and for some reason we all now have to deal with your shit.

First came Republicans for Oil Bailouts, and now this.

So called journalists claim that Obama is not interested in anything that BP has to say. Well, to that I say that we heard BP try to minimize the oil spill to 5000 barrels a day. Then we find that BP routinely had put profits over safety and even decided at a Texas plant that it would be cheaper to pay off dead relatives than to implement the safety strategies. We know that BP had minimized the damage in the Gulf and even tried to deny that underwater plumes existed. And we find out that BP had tried to pay off shrimpers with a measly 5000 dollars in return for not suing. Now we find out that BP is banning the wearing of protective gear to clean up workers because they say it looks bad for the company. And this is just what is popular knowledge.

So while these pundits and journalists are worrying about their million dollar stock portfolio, thousands of hard working Americans have lost their livelihoods and are now struggling to make ends meet. So eat shit pundits. You reap what you sow assholes.

However some are crying foul because stockholders of other oil companies are feeling the pinch. Well, sorry but your company of holdings did participate in the deregulation of the industry. Your company of holdings did fight to loosen the rules. And your company of holdings did fight to weaken the government that could have had a stronger response if for not your company of holding's greed and political buying spree that resulted in the weakening of our fine country. And your company of holding surely participated buying out alternative energy programs and/or a propaganda program to confuse as many Americans as possible into believing that the alternative energy's programs were some stupid nonsense communist hippie movement. So I will be one to tell you that your company is getting whats coming.

I even read one article that compared Obama's stance to an analogy that goes,

A policeman kicks out your taillight and then writes you a ticket for a faluty taillight.

Ha! Well let me blockkquote myself on the next one as an anology of the oil industry,

They rape your sister, murder your father, steal your family's life savings and fortunes, and then cry foul for getting 5 days in jail.

Another funny thing is that in that same article, the bad stock picker who would rather earn a living off of margins than actually work for a living, also said that the public is against a climate and energy bill.

Well for one, there's that phrase that deceitful right wingers like to throw in there. "The public said this". "The public is for...". The public is against...". They can make up any shit they want and throw in "the public this or that", and it's suppose to pass as fact. And if ever it is true, just go back to a previous paragraph that relents to the fact that these multi multi-billion dollar corporations use deceitfully stealth campaigns to confuse the public against their own good.

So these assholes can bitch and moan about their multi million dollar bottom lines while their margin makers are destroying lives that actually work for a living and build this country, but the fact is that after everything that these "hippie liberals" have been trying to say, these assholes stuck their nose high in the air,  and farted on any liberal and scientific evidence as they waked by and made their bet on what most people knew was the dirty oil companies.

So, to you assholes and your big stink bombs, us hard working liberals who enjoy our communities and our country land, and the scientific community are all use to your relentless flatulence, however, now your nasty farts have spilled over into the livelihoods of those who have for generations made their living off the Gulf Coast. And your flatulence will be smelt when hurricanes are bigger and badder due to the destruction of the wetlands in the Gulf. And your flatulence will begin taking a toll across the US when seafood prices continue to rise. But I guess you stink bomb kingmakers will enjoy that last one won't you.

So to all you assholes bitching about stock prices and trying to morph you as a stock holder of the wrong company into all Americans so as to gain more sympathy, I say get your stank butt assholes out of our faces. Get your dirty assholes out of our airwaves because your shit is starting to get really unbearable. Actually it always has. It's just that everyone else if finally starting to find out that all the chocolate they've been eating isn't really chocolate. It's shit.

So sorry assholes, but you picked the wrong stock. You should have listened.

And that's my piece for the day.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

      While I don't have much confidence in BP's management, from what I've seen, this is a very large, essentially utility company with a lot of political clout in the UK. This spill won't necessarily kill it off, so an investment might pan out over 10 or 20 years.

    I feel absolutely no pity for anyone feeling the pinch due to possible devaluation of a stock portfolio containing oil/nat gas/coal company stocks.  Dealing with stocks is like gambling, only that you are paying the person to whom you are gambling to make money for you.  In that process they will do everything possible to make more money for you so that you will give them more money.  Attack regulations? Check.  Weaken safety procedures? Check.  Cut any and all corners to make an extra nickel? Check.  Massive corporate failure that could lead to massive devaluation of stock coming back to bite the investor in the ass? Check.  
    I'm with jreal on this one, all the gamblers who are complaining about getting the shaft due to losing value on their own gambling deserve a big FUCK OFF.  Now they want the gov't to protect their investment in some way. Can you say "welfare queens"?  Corporate welfare is a much bigger problem than actual welfare because actual welfare can help people who are struggling, whereas corporate welfare fattens stock options for people who have never struggled, while sucking money out of the economy which could actually be used to help people on welfare find employment.  It's a double dose of suck.  Fuck the "investment class" on this one.  Gambled on BP and losing money?  Too bad.

      Actually, for gay people who wish to marry, they probably didn't choose Bush.

      For the Pelicans, they didn't choose oil companies to drill in their habitat. We kind of made that choice for them.

      For auto workers, well I've worked for a company before that eventually went out of business too. That's business. You got to have what the public wants. Business 101. Besides, we did everything to save their asses. So fuck off.

      For retirees.  Again. That was their decision. I know at least 2 retirees who avoided oil stocks. They're my parents.

      Thanks for trolling.

  •  Great buying opportunity (0+ / 0-)

    Just so we understand, it's likely that BP was in the portfolio of every big company, city, county, state, police, fire and teachers pension fund in the US. In addition it was probably a holding in the mutual funds owned by half the people with 401Ks and IRAs. Personally I am short BP. However now is probably a good time to buy oil stocks. Not BP, where the liabilities are unknown. But if you believe in peak oil and  that the long term supply demand relationships for oil favor the producer over the user, these are good stocks to own. With limited new supply, and the emergence of developing economies around the world, oil stocks have strong fundamentals.
