When is calling BS when BS is BS not correct?
For instance, the AT&T "3G" network map they air nationwide for all to see. THAT is pure BS.... I'm in the map and tried their "3G", even talked to their reps... connection speed was worse than dialup. No s***, honest truth. I went back to dialup. Yet their adverts continue... when will America wake up and call BS without fear that its not PC or get sued? How many gallons or BARRELS per hour is it.. which report is telling "the truth". The British government wasn't happy with how America is pinning things on BP... WHY? What does the British GOVERNMENT have to do with it? Our President had to "call" and soothe Britain? WTF?!
PC is killing America!
I agree with you on the whole "PC" thing.
As far as the BP debacle goes, the Brits werent upset with pinning the whole disaster on BP per se...I doubt that anyone would deny that BP fracked up BIGTIME.
I think rather that they were concerned with the constant references to the company by some in the administration as "British Petroleum",
a name the company hasn't gone by for many years; rightly or wrongly (opinions differ on it) I think they were concerned that constantly referring to the old company name reflected badly on the Brits and wrongly inferred that the British government should shoulder blame, when they are, of course, blameless in this.
ANyway, no matter how you characterize it, it IS a sad, sad event. And all indications now point to cost-cutting and corporate greed as the main reason for this mess.
