Did accidentally and purposely lose their meanings?

Or did I forget that BP blew the well up on purpose and then did nothing and Limewire never noticed the potential for music, movies and software to be illegally downloaded and try their hardest to stop it.

Oh wait..

You cannot argue with people that make stuff up for themselves to believe!

*yawn*

at least we are not blind. piracy != stealing but we've been through all that before. while it's not stealing, it's not exactly legal either.

It's like one of those crimes nobody cares about except all the rich people, that expect us to bow down and buy their useless crap.

Yep, destroyed it. I guess that's why there are no wetlands in Texas or Mexico, and why no huge fishing industry exists in the Gulf of Mexico, or yearly fishing tournaments and beautiful beaches drawing hundreds of thousands of tourists.

Oh, wait...
Oh I get it! Time will heal everything! Tell that to the people who have had their lives wrecked by this. People who will never get it back in all likelihood.

I'm glad you can read a 6 paragraph Wikipedia article on a oil spill that happened in 1979 and think you know everything. Sadly, you don't, in conclusion, you are a heartless saphead.
