Orange Beach pulling EMS staff from BP sites because 'BP won't pay their bills,' mayor
~Tired of waiting for millions in lost tax revenue and expense claims, Orange Beach officials are packing up staff and medical equipment and moving out of BP PLC contractor work sites on Monday, Mayor Tony Kennon said Saturday.
"We’re going to pull out all of our firemen and paramedics because BP won’t pay their bills,” Kennon said. “We have a multibillion-dollar, multinational corp having a town of 5,000 people in Alabama front the money for their emergency medical response, and I’m tired of it. We’re not going to do it anymore."

BP is still SLEAZING ALONG, without a care in the world, SCREW YOUZ BP says........I hope they don't need medical care in Alabama! Actually, I hope they do!
My word verification is "fetim".....I dunno but it sounds like something nasty BP would have or be doing or not doing....

Editilla said...

Hehehe, Fetim does sound like a barrel full of voodoo dolls.

Hey, keep your head up around Albuquerque. Boulder CO has 4 fires going around it now, one which took over 150 homes.
You know how this shit comes in groups. Got an uneasy feeling.

Ima Wizer said...

Well, not in Albq.....we don't have the trees in close proximity like they have. We're more laid out, close to the Sandias but not of the Sandias.....but so sad about Boulder!
new post on my blog as of yesterday........xoxoxoxo

word verification "permalik" that permalike or permalick? Hmmmmmm
