Thread Name: BS: Exxon: Drunk Ship Captains Wanted...
Subject: BS: Exxon: Drunk Ship Captains Wanted...
Let me see if I have this correct...

Exxon now is arguing that it should not have to pay punitive damages to the thousands of fishermen who lost their businesses because of the Valdez oil spill because...

... the captian of the ship was drunk???

That appears to be what they are arguing before the Supreme Court...

And, of course, the Supreme Kangaroo Corporatist Court will go along with Exxon because Exxon gives alot of $$$ to politicans, including the Bush's who have handpicked their fair share of the Supreme Crooks...

So this got me thinkin' that after Exxon prevails here that Exxon will just be sure to have drunhk captain's in all their super-tankers in case something bad happens that might cost them some $$$...

It is an absolutely brillient idea, I must say...

Maybe the airlines will follow... And bus companies... And taxi companies...

Beam me up... There is no intellegent life left here...
