Pontos Bp quotes by Kristin Bauer Van Straten
#1. One lesson I got from Gandhi, 'Be the change you want to see,' haunts me. I just feel like I can't keep stomping around pointing the finger at BP when I am supporting the oil industry with my very own dollars and actions by buying their products, helping to pay their mortgage - plastic is from oil ... polyester, shower curtains. #Quote by Kristin Bauer Van Straten
Pontos Bp quotes by Stephen Kinzer
#2. To frustrated Americans who have begun boycotting BP: Welcome to the club. It's great not to be the only member any more! #Quote by Stephen Kinzer
Pontos Bp quotes by Ilona Andrews
#3. We'd need to leave fast. The biggest hurdle would be finding a ship. Passages across the Atlantic didn't always work out. The Black Sea wasn't easy to cross either. The ancient Greeks called it Pontos Axenos, the Hostile Sea. In our day and age, Greek myths were lifesaving required reading, and I'd read enough of them to know that the Black Sea wasn't a fun place.
"Where on the Black Sea?"
"Georgia."
Colchis. Bodyguard detail in the land of the Golden Fleece, dragons, and witches, where the Argonauts had sailed and nearly died. #Quote by Ilona Andrews
Pontos Bp quotes by Barry Ritholtz
#4. Keynes vs Hayek? Friedman vs Krugman? Those are the wrong intellectual debates. Its you vs. Tony Hayward, BP CEO, You vs. Lloyd Blankfein, Goldman Sachs CEO. And you are losing ... #Quote by Barry Ritholtz
Pontos Bp quotes by David Cameron
#5. Cap the well, yes. Clear up the mess, yes. Make compensation - yes, absolutely. But would it be right to have legislation that independently targets BP rather than other companies? I don't think that - would be right. #Quote by David Cameron
Pontos Bp quotes by Jim Kaat
#6. When he took BP everybody would kind of stop what they were doing and watch. #Quote by Jim Kaat
Pontos Bp quotes by Stacey Ballis
#7. I cooked with so many of the greats: Tom Colicchio, Eric Ripert, Wylie Dufresne, Grant Achatz. Rick Bayless taught me not one but two amazing mole sauces, the whole time bemoaning that he never seemed to know what to cook for his teenage daughter. Jose Andres made me a classic Spanish tortilla, shocking me with the sheer volume of viridian olive oil he put into that simple dish of potatoes, onions, and eggs. Graham Elliot Bowles and I made gourmet Jell-O shots together, and ate leftover cheddar risotto with Cheez-Its crumbled on top right out of the pan.
Lucky for me, Maria still includes me in special evenings like this, usually giving me the option of joining the guests at table, or helping in the kitchen. I always choose the kitchen, because passing up the opportunity to see these chefs in action is something only an idiot would do. Susan Spicer flew up from New Orleans shortly after the BP oil spill to do an extraordinary menu of all Gulf seafood for a ten-thousand-dollar-a-plate fund-raising dinner Maria hosted to help the families of Gulf fishermen. Local geniuses Gil Langlois and Top Chef winner Stephanie Izard joined forces with Gale Gand for a seven-course dinner none of us will ever forget, due in no small part to Gil's hoisin oxtail with smoked Gouda mac 'n' cheese, Stephanie's roasted cauliflower with pine nuts and light-as-air chickpea fritters, and Gale's honey panna cotta with rhubarb compote and insane little chocolate cookies. Stephanie and I bonded over #Quote by Stacey Ballis
Pontos Bp quotes by Peter Welch

Pontos Bp quotes by John Green
#9. This had better be one extraordinary well-stocked BP station, because we are going to clear the bitch out. #Quote by John Green
Pontos Bp quotes by Poppet
#10. The soy is seeping through the material like a BP oil slick in a Louisiana swamp. #Quote by Poppet
Pontos Bp quotes by David Letterman
#11. BP has put more birds in oil than Colonel Sanders. #Quote by David Letterman
Pontos Bp quotes by Craig Ferguson
#12. BP CEO Tony Hayward said recently, 'No one wants this thing over more than I do. I'd like my life back.' Tony, I'm so sorry you had your summer disrupted. I'd buy you a drink, but you'd probably spill that too and make me clean it up. #Quote by Craig Ferguson
Pontos Bp quotes by Gar Alperovitz
#13. The power of the big fish in general to regroup is hardly restricted to banking. When Standard Oil was broken up in 1911, the immediate effect was to replace a national monopoly with a number of regional monopolies controlled by many of the same Wall Street interests. Ultimately, the regional monopolies regrouped: In 1999 Exxon (formerly Standard Oil Company of New Jersey) and Mobil (formerly Standard Oil Company of New York) reconvened in one of the largest mergers in US history. In 1961 Kyso (formerly Standard Oil of Kentucky) was purchased by Chevron (formerly Standard Oil of California); and in the 1960s and 1970s Sohio (formerly Standard Oil of Ohio) was bought by British Petroleum (BP), which then, in 1998, merged with Amoco (formerly Standard Oil of Indiana).

The tale of AT&T is similar. As the result of an antitrust settlement with the government, on January 1, 1984, AT&T spun off its local operations so as to create seven so-called Baby Bells. But the Baby Bells quickly began to merge and regroup. By 2006 four of the Baby Bells were reunited with their parent company AT&T, and two others (Bell Atlantic and NYNEX) merged to form Verizon.

So the hope that you can make a banking breakup stick (even if it were to be achieved) flies in the face of some pretty daunting experience. Also, note carefully a major political fact: The time when traditional reformers had enough power to make tough banking regulation really work was the time when #Quote by Gar Alperovitz
Pontos Bp quotes by Bill Maher
#14. This is the worst thing to happen to beaches since the Speedo. #Quote by Bill Maher
Pontos Bp quotes by Robert Greenwald
#15. We know that BP cuts safety corners, takes risks, and is unconcerned about anything other than their own profit. #Quote by Robert Greenwald
Pontos Bp quotes by Rand Paul
#16. What I don't like from the president's administration is this sort of, 'I'll put my boot heel on the throat of BP.' I think that sounds really un-American in his criticism of business. I've heard nothing from BP about not paying for the spill. And I think it's part of this sort of blame-game society in the sense that it's always got to be someone's fault instead of the fact that sometimes accidents happen. #Quote by Rand Paul
Pontos Bp quotes by Jimmy Fallon
#17. Here's a little bit of good news. The Coast Guard says that BP is now catching up to 630,000 gallons of oil a day. The bad news is that they're capturing it with ducks. #Quote by Jimmy Fallon
Pontos Bp quotes by Ian Bremmer
#18. I believe that if you go and ask a chief executive of a Goldman Sachs or a BP, and they answer you honestly ... they want monopolies, they want government subsidies, they want preferences - they're not interested in free markets. #Quote by Ian Bremmer
Pontos Bp quotes by Jimmy Fallon
#19. A new poll found that 43 percent of Americans think President Obama is doing a good job at handling the BP oil spill. Of course, the same poll found that 43 percent of Americans hate pelicans. #Quote by Jimmy Fallon
Pontos Bp quotes by Phil Gingrey
#20. For the life of me I can't understand why BP couldn't go in at the ocean floor, maybe 10 feet lateral to the - around the periphery, drill a few holes, and put a little ammonium nitrate, some dynamite in those holes, and detonate that dynamite, and seal that leak. Seal it permanently. #Quote by Phil Gingrey
Pontos Bp quotes by Anthony Weiner
#21. Here's a viewer's guide to BP media briefings. Whenever you hear someone with a British accent talking about this on behalf of British Petroleum they are not telling you the truth. That's the bottom-line. #Quote by Anthony Weiner
Pontos Bp quotes by Bill Maher
#22. BP today finally managed to almost completely stop the flow of information. #Quote by Bill Maher
Pontos Bp quotes by Jay Leno
#23. BP CEO Tony Hayward said he would just like to get his life back. He wants to get his life back. You know, I say give him life plus 20. #Quote by Jay Leno
Pontos Bp quotes by Ian Somerhalder
#24. I feel vulnerable when I have no choice. It segues into every facet of life, whether it's love, work, family, or conservation. Here it is: the whole reason that I started the Ian Somerhalder Foundation was the feeling of complete vulnerability during the BP oil spill. #Quote by Ian Somerhalder
Pontos Bp quotes by John Boehner
#25. I think the government should do everything they possibly can to, to bring this crisis to an end; and that means going after BP, enforcing the laws that are on the books, and restoring the gulf to its original condition. #Quote by John Boehner
Pontos Bp quotes by Haley Barbour
#26. There have been more than 30,000 oil wells drilled in the Gulf of Mexico in the last 50 years. This is the first time something like this has ever happened [BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill], and we need to get to the bottom of it, find out what happened, make sure it doesn't happen again. But I think it is very reasonable to continue to drill. #Quote by Haley Barbour
Pontos Bp quotes by Carl Safina
#27. BP had a lease to drill. They did not have a lease to pollute the Gulf of Mexico. They did not have a lease to blow oil into the environment. They did not have a lease to disperse the oil and try to hide the body. They don't have a lease to clean up. #Quote by Carl Safina
Pontos Bp quotes by Paul Mason
#28. Bargaining This stage is characterized by the non-BP making concessions in order to bring back the "normal" behavior of the person they love. The thinking goes, "If I do what this person wants, I will get what I need in this relationship." We all make compromises in relationships. But the sacrifices that people make to satisfy the borderlines they care about can be very costly. And the concessions may never be enough. Before long, more proof of love is needed and another bargain must be struck. depression Depression sets in when non-BPs realize the true cost of the bargains they've made: loss of friends, family, self-respect, and hobbies. The person with BPD hasn't changed. But the non-BP has. #Quote by Paul Mason
Pontos Bp quotes by Jesmyn Ward
#29. Some scientists for BP said this didn't have nothing to do with the oil, that sometimes this is what happens to animals: they die for unexpected reasons. Sometimes a lot of them. Sometimes all at once ... And when that scientist said that, I thought about humans. Because humans is animals. #Quote by Jesmyn Ward
Pontos Bp quotes by Mark Kirk
#30. Alexi Giannoulias' top aide was a longtime BP lobbyist. #Quote by Mark Kirk
Pontos Bp quotes by Emile M. Cioran
#31. I do not want to see BP nickel and diming these businesses that are having a tough time. #Quote by Emile M. Cioran
Pontos Bp quotes by David Letterman
#32. The president met with BP CEO Tony Hayward, and Obama was demanding that BP clean up the Gulf. And I'm thinking, good luck. They can't even clean up their gas station restrooms. #Quote by David Letterman
