$1Million/foot with 7ft thrown in free

The agricultural minister of Equitorial Guinea, son of the president-for-life, Teodorin Obiang, has ordered the second most expensive yacht to date. Eclipsed only be the very over-the-top yacht of Russian mobster Roman Abramovich.The money comes from Exxon-Mobil, is anybody surprised? Rush Limbaugh harps much about how much the Corporate Oil Über-Politik spend on "helping" the poor half-nekkid half-starved little Africans. Sure they do. 23225

Surprise! GenMod “oil-munching” Bacteria mutating

And killing other sea life. Can someone say "Andromeda Strain"? Omega Man. Dr Frankestein. Anybody? Bueller? Anybody? Some of it is happening, apparently, because of the amounts of Corexant applied. But of course a powerful solvent which will make oil and water mix couldn't possibly make mutations in something that has a reproductive cycle of say, an hour or two. Nor would any mutations from already laboratory mutated specimens of these microbes (actually single-celled plants) even remotely possibly be pumping out the non-laboratory-controlled mutations doubling every hour or so... And the dead crabs, worms, starfish etc... being found in the affected area just have no relevance whatsoever. Couldn't be, nope. Dr Mandy Joye Of course, too, she's just an "intellectual" who has studied Marine Biology for like 27 years of college and post graduate and doctorate. And of course the fact that she, unlike Rush Limbaugh or Bill O'Reilly or Sarah Palin or any of the board of directors at BP, actually HAS hands-on (robot hands, it's a very deep subject...) experience up close and as personal s you can be in an ALVIN submarine... that still wouldn't mean she's not some Ivory Tower Prima-Donna unlike the assholes at Fox who get paid

BP strikes again.

Oil and Dispersant filled crabs showing up on the Gulf seafood market. BP is playing the jobs card here the same as they do on the Gulf. They're wanting to re-open "extraction" of the oil shale beds near Guffey and Florissant CO.. Park County... near the non-fiction town of Southpark. To do it they'll be basically mining the oil, taking rocks, crushing them and boiling the oil out. Using the really scarce water resources, every drop of which is claimed by people as far east as the Mississippi and all the way to the West Coast, Brownsville, and Mexico. The watersheds from here flow to everyplace lower than here, which means, everyplace in the Western two thirds of the United States. Which was why the Shale Oil enterprises were shut down before they could even get started back in 1974. We've got at least 8 candidates on the ballot who say that cost Colorado jobs. 19826

Oil Company and Military “job creation” in the Springs..

Are going to go to... people who already work for the oil companies and the Military Industrial Complex. The (God this is a stupid term) Surge in employment is of the trickle down variety. Like the ghost of Reagan pissing on us in death the way he did in life. Let's dissect the Oil Jobs, yes? They've got a bunch of unemployed oil people. Fewer and fewer wells, more and more people who have experience and tenure, no need for Halliburton or BP to train people locally. We'll get jobs like More McDonalds, or Workin' at the Car Wash Blues, oh, and the oil and Military Industrial folks will bring their families so a portion of the New Jobs will be eaten up by them. Then there's what they'll be DOING. In the early 70s they tried this same shit, there were about a third as many people in the area, and still a water crisis. Since the Springs area feeds the watersheds that provide water to every where west of the Mississippi, that's a huge responsibility. Every drop of rain that falls here is already claimed a year or more in advance. The Shale Oil extraction process takes up a lot of

Following Right Wing political theology

Faith based politics where you have to believe fervently the dogma handed down by the High Priests of Capital... But according to their gospels of greed, there has never actually been any revolution where wealth has been redistributed to the poor from the wealthy. In other words, the wealth has been transferred from one group of heavily armed rich thieves to another. Lateral instead of Vertical economic mobility. Thus, no real Socialist state or more importantly, Socialist Economy has ever existed, at least according to the Ayn Rand Theology. Yet somehow, it's the Communists and Socialists, the ones who never had their hands on the missing bread in the first place, who crashed the economy repeatedly over the past 500 years of straight-on Capitalism. For instance the Mortgage Crisis that immediately preceded the crash of the War-expense Bloated Debt Economy. 19242

What, are the Chinese trying to mimic ALL our energy-sector screwups?

So they matched our Corporate Mining Accidents-waiting-to-happen-and-guess-what-they-do with similar ones by similar causes and similar results, and using Imported American industry analysts who also work for BP, Exxon Mobil, Massey Energy, The Peabody, etc... Now, they've got a BP-esque Oil Spill in the Yellow Sea. Is it caused by their "socialist" supposedly publicly owned Nationalized Oil industry, now brought to its dying knees by the New Economy Capitalist Oil industry? Either one, of course, run under the supervision of the American and British Oil well, refinery and shipping Industry Experts who also work for BP, Exxon-Mobil, Massey Energy... The Rule of Three seems to have been pretty damned consistent in all of these lately, too, so maybe we can expect the Fully Capitalized Russian Oil Slick on the (deepwater) horizon? 18923

“What would taxing the predatory oil, gas and coal companies mean to YOU?”

If they had asked the question honestly.... But they didn't and don't. By the way, that means the aforementioned Predatory Oil, Gas and Coal companies are still fighting, with the full blessings of Washington Insiders, any regulation on their practices or repayment of the debts they owe.   In a laughable smear against anybody who stands in the way of their Rape of the ecology and economy of the entire world, they have one Highly Trained Goof-Ball barking like a good little slave-doggy about the "Washington insiders" who are allegedly not deep in Oil Company pockets. I guess, you know, that buying the air time for these commercials over the past 5 years or so of this particularly sleazy campaign, was less expensive than actually reforming their industries. It paid off big for Exxon, which didn't pay a dime of income tax last year on BILLIONS of dollars of mostly Taxpayer Subsidized profits. 18502
