It's time once again for Mama Kat's Weekly Homework Assignment! This week, I chose the following prompt: Who are you giving a timeout to? I'm giving a timeout to all the finger pointers in this whole Gulf of Mexico oil spill tragedy. It's downright childish at this point, isn't it?
I mean, there will be plenty of time for finger pointing later. Isn't the most pressing thing to stop the oil from spilling/pouring out? Shouldn't everyone be focusing on a solution first? I think all of these companies would gain a little more respect (and maybe some trust back) if this were the case. That should be job one at this point.
Instead, all the people at BP, Haliburton, and congress continue to point fingers, and call names like little kids on a recess yard. I'm sick of it. Obviously, these companies (and government) care more about themselves than they do about the environment ... they care more about the short-term than the long-term. It's frustrating. Heck, most news sites are tired of reporting on it, as it has slipped off the "front-page."
It's time to grow up and find a solution ... then, and only then can these companies return to acting like spoiled children.
