Transocean gives bonuses after Gulf of Mexico BP spill

The offshore drilling firm responsible for running the Deepwater Horizon rig has given its top executives bonuses for its "best year" for safety.

Transocean was blamed along with BP and Halliburton after last year's massive spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

Eleven workers, nine of whom worked for Transocean, died when the Deepwater Horizon exploded almost a year ago.

But Transocean said there had been a drop in the rate of recorded incidents and also in their potential severity.

As I recall this worm was making a habit out of screwing with Mark for a long time. Apparently, he deems it necessary to be difficult just for the sake of being difficult. what a life that must be. every day is opposite day. Yipee

No comment from the kitties.

I think (hope) that the worm and I have come to cease fire terms.

At least I have.

He is obviously an instigator. Posting for response.
His bit. Worms around the facts rather that simply coming out and stating his case. Always has to beat around the bush. Couching his words. In worm terms.

Whatever......

He is gonna be who he wants to be. I am gonna be me.

Nice planet, isn't it?

Getting a Bonus is not Nothing. It is Real Money.

Money to be taxed. Money to be spent. Money to be invested

Money doing work.

We've all heard the stories of how $1 changes so many hands and benefits so many people.

Even a dollar a Super Rich Elite gets is highly Beneficial.

However, most Bonuses go to Regular Joes and Jolines.

I call that a Bonus to them and The Economy.

Ah but our corporate executives are to smart to take cash bonuses. that would be taxes at 35%. they take stock options, which when sold are taxes at 15%. Not bad if you can do it. BTW 15% is considered the lowest tax bracket when calculating income.

Yep. And 1%; 5%; 10%; 15% - 35% of 1 MILLION or 100 MILLION is a lot more than Joe and Joline pay in taxes in Their Lifetime.

So, Super Rich Elite/Corporations et al - keep getting those Bonuses and keep paying More Taxes in Your Lifetimes than Millions of Joe and Jolines pay in Multiple Lifetimes.

Also, keep Contributing to Charities in Amounts So Great it Boggles the Mind.
And keep taking those Deductions.

For net net the Amount going into The Treasury is Magnitude of Orders Greater than Whatever Poor Hard Working Joe and Joline can ever contribute.

Also, anytime I see a McMansion going up, I see plenty of Joe and Jolines Working Hard building it. Jobs Jobs Jobs.

And McMansions these days are becoming very "Green". Go in any Working Class Neighborhood and show me all the "Green".

No it is 28% because it will be taxed at AMT rates.
