What was it that made Brad Pitt reconsider his opposition to the death penalty?

September 3rd, 2010

The murders of children?

Genocide?

Cannibalism?

Nope.

It was the need to punish a company that dared to spill oil and then had the audacity to pay for the clean up and restitution!

When it comes to BP and the Gulf Oil Spill, discount viagra decease Brad Pitt is direct and to the point. If he was in power, those responsible for the oil spill would have more than cleanup efforts to worry about. Pitt has said that the death penalty would be a viable option if it were up to him.

The “Ocean’s Eleven” actor said he usually opposed capital punishment but would make an exception if he could. Lucky for BP executives that Pitt is not in a seat of power.

Pitt’s harsh words for BP are found in Spike Lee’s new documentary about New Orleans – “If God Is Willing and Da Creek Don’t Rise.”

“I was never for the death penalty before – I am willing to look at it again,” the 46-year-old said when asked about the situation.

    “The United States has become a place where entertainers and professional athletes are mistaken for people of importance.”

    Interviewing Brad Pitt and asking political questions o him is like interviewing Paris Hilton and asking her opinion on the economy.
    Neither one are very smart.
    But I guess Pitt is like that guy who raided the Discovery Channel the other day, an unhinged left wing loon.
    I hope the left is proud of him. You bought him, you own him.

    We can use the f-word around here now? OK. Heinlein is just jealous of Ray Bradbury. Like we’re supposed to listen to SF authors more than entertainers and athletes? What are you, some kind of intellectual?

    Oops, I removed my “f-bomb.” Don’t know what came over me. Sort of funny that it was whiteout, not politics, that elicited it. ;)

    Welcome to the New Relativism.

    Yeah, Brad Pitt is in charge of the New Relativism, and it is a unique characteristic of the Forces of Evil.
