But still no arrests in the mortgage fraud debacle?

No arrests in the Mexican gun running case?

No arrests for any employer hiring illegal immigrants?

But there are arrests for this.

The Justice Department says the 50-year-old Mix is accused of deleting a string of 200 text messages with a BP supervisor in October 2010 that involved internal BP information about how efforts to cap the well were failing.

The Feds have gone mad.

Stark, raving, bats-in-their-belfry, lights-are-on-but-nobody's-home mad.

Since whe has deleting a text message been against the law?

This is nothing but a federal government intrusion on a person’s right to communicate with co-workers.

Actually that is how things are done in banana republics and other third world countries. Find a scapegoat and criminally punish him for an accident. And folks, the good old USA is now both. We have seen this coming for a while now. Just wait until a dam or nuclear reactor fails. Some engineer will be sentenced to prison for contributing to the accident.

Makes about as much sense as indicting Scooter Libby for the Plame “outing”.

Mr. Mix is now in the history books as the first Official Scapegoat of the Obama Summer of Kangaroo Show Trials.

Don’t you know that it’s all your imagination? I was assured many times here on FR that there was no problem with the oil.

I tried to explain it was the millions of gallons of Mean Green that was dumped, but got told not to worry.

LOL...well now, I was never one to buy into all the *organic* is safer mantra, but I do concern myself with good, high quality food and the thought that even the pink shrimp we buy for pure hedonist pleasure isn't possibly safe anymore is a bummer.

There's a long transition of *no eyes* in our culture...maybe I'm being too fussy.

200 text msgs? Do phone company servers preserve the text msgs? How many text messages make a phone hard to use err read and respond? I’m thinking BS charges.
