Most of us have had our attention captured by the crisis that is currently enveloping the gulf coast region. While I am not a conspiracy theorist, it absolutely amazes me how big companies can commit such egregious acts with virtually no legal or ethical ramification. The sad reality is that when it is all said and done, ten or twenty years from now, we will look back and see that those personally responsible for the acts of this company and/or the company itself will have not been fully held accountable. Furthermore, our political representatives will have done nothing to ensure that this won't happen again.
This is where my nearly 20 years of military service experience kicks in. I have made the realization over the years that individuals usually get away with murder (figuratively speaking) because we don't hold them accountable. The reason for this is that we don't keep good records or organize them in a manner that, when called for, they are readily available.
So with this thought in mind one of my friends, that I recently started a business with, and I have set up the website www.bpoilrelief.com to help affected businesses effectively track their financial losses due to the BP oil spill. We are not out to make money or take advantage of the situation. In fact, it is because my partner's father owns a business in Mobile, Alabama, (Gulf Coast region) that we have realized the need for this kind of website. So, it was with those types of individuals, who are directly feeling the brunt of this tragedy, in mind that we developed this site.
If your business, or any other businesses you know of, are being affected by the BP Oil spill, please check out our website at www.bpoilrelief.com. It's a free tracking system that will allow business owners to keep records of what they lose each day as a result of the spill. This is an efficient way to keep everything documented and organized for their records with little effort on their part.
