    I Am Sick Of Hearing "Oil Spills Happen"

    It is the height of cynicism. We need the oil. Oil spills happen. We haven’t had an oil spill in a long time. It is your fault because you drive a car. Basically, **** happens.   First of all, even if you are in favor of “Drill, Baby, Drill!”, there is no...

    I'm Not Mad At Bp
