And behold, a Star fell from the heavens onto the face of the seas.

And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.

And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea.

To be fair, the second picture isn’t of the BP spill, it’s the Ixtoxl spill. Which is the name of a MesoAmerican religious figure.

And, yes, this one is for the Drill, Baby, Drill! Palin fans.

Since she is a Lay Minister in a Pentecost church, something the Assemblies of God churches used to strictly prohibit, along with women wearing pantsuits. In my lifetime I’ve heard the AOG and others use the term “Whore of Babylon” to describe people who dress a lot more conservatively.

Not that I think she’s (very much) more of a candidate for that Exalted Dishonor, also from The Revelation to St John the Divine than many others. They called Nancy Reagan that when Ronnie dumped his first ol’ lady for her.

Just, you know, sayin’ is all.

And since both chez Reagan and chez Palin belong to a particularly strong blasphemy within Fundamentalism called Dominionism, which preaches that the world is Ours and we can do whatever the literal Hell we want with it.

If you want to hear some truly retarded dominionist thinking tune in DumFox Noose Nutwerx and listen to Sarah and Hannity and Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin, Glenn Beck, Bill Oh, Really?

They’re advancing the notion that it was the fault of Environmentalists. Everything ranging from “Oh, if those Environmentalists had simply allowed us to poison the waters flowing from the Great Divide by cooking Oil Shale, this wouldn’t have happened (yet)!” to some really paranoid theories about sabotage. But, according to them, it’s environmental protection legislation that caused the problem.

Because they don’t want to pay the Bill, baby, Bill! Or more importantly their Corporate Masters don’t.

    All your gobblygook yet you have wrote nothing here, Jonah… Nothing at all.

    Try reading this instead…

    ‘One reason Obama doesn’t challenge BP is because he’s on their payroll. The news agency Reuters explains: “During his time in the Senate and while running for president, Obama received a total of $77,051 from the oil giant and is the top recipient of BP PAC and individual money over the past 20 years, according to financial disclosure records.” (May 5, 2010) ‘

    full article can be found on today’s Counterpunch website…

    Wasting the Gulf- Is Obama BP’s Poodle?

    Now you see, Jonah, good writing can be found on this issue. Just not here on NMT where it’s non-stop ‘I Hate the Republicans’ all the time from mighty yourself, sponsored by Eric, the Closet Dem.

  2. yeah, yeah yeah… Obama is the root of all Evil, nothing wrong ever occurred before January 19th 2009.

    Meanwhile, it might have escaped your attention, being as it’s local, but the Oil Company and their principal cheerleaders, including the TeaBags and their divine Heroin (she’s a Dope) want to poison our LOCAL waters (more than they have already) with the Shale Oil Extraction. Some of them even using the BP spill as an opening.

    The theory is that those Bad ol’ wicked Environmentalist Hippies have prevented them from exploiting sources of oil and coal in sensitive areas onshore. Like here.
    The last time they seriously came this close to doing there were half as many people here and still not enough water to satisfy both the extraction process and the people, plus of course the local wildlife. Which is why the project was shelved. But apparently not forgotten.

    Another thing you seem to have missed is that the Drill Baby Drill crowd like to use their own interpretations of the Bible as justification for destroying the earth. And, yes, they DO read these things. Call people crazy for pointing out and countering the fact that they do so, and also use the same readings of Scripture to justify the Wars they start, eh.

    Tony, that’s twice in less than a day that you’ve accused people of insanity with no other justification than their writings didn’t reflect your obsession with demonizing Mr Obama.

    Meanwhile, the Drill Baby Drill and “Israel Right Or Wrong” Evildoers are getting a free pass. From some people at least.

    I almost used the term ‘nutjobs” but that’s not quite appropriate. The ones at the top levels directing the propaganda aren’t insane. They know what they’re doing and just don’t care that it’s not moral.

    Oh, and I know the Right Wingers do read this site, as evidenced by their replies every time one of us says something that raises their hackles. Which is a good thing, you know, pissing off the evildoers.

    And if I can do it by countering their statements that God ordained them to be rulers of all the world, groovy. That’s satisfying on a personal level.

    You should talk about demonizing people, Jonah! You are the one with the super arch talent for doing just that, aren’t you? Yes you are! You know you are, Dude!

    Now listen to your sad sack self once again…

    ‘Tony, that’s twice in less than a day that you’ve accused people of insanity with no other justification than their writings didn’t reflect your obsession with demonizing Mr Obama.’

    ‘Mr Obama’ no less! Isn’t that so sweet? ‘Mr Obama’???

    You write one of your usual diatribes against Sarah, The Pail One, connecting it to BP, and I tell you that it is ‘Mr Obama’ that’s the big all time winner recipient of BP money, but that hurts your donkey ears so. Oh don’t it?

    The truth seems to hurt you, Jonah. It makes you tremble all over since you, as a democrat little d, just can’t stand to hear how your Great Hope is all one with the Big Enemy, the Republicans.

    ‘Oh, Tony! Don’t talk like that bad against ‘Mr Obama’. It just ain’t right! I’m going to cry now! You’re obsessed! You hate Mr Obama so!’

    Eric, calm your ‘brilliant’ little donkey voter down some, would yuh? He needs his voice some to bray yet more at Sarah Palin and not just at me.

    Donkey Applesauce is in retirement from over on Fillmore Street, and the local Crats need another one around out by the barnyard now. Jonah will do. He’s even a bigger donkey than you are, Eric!

    Tonight’s Barack Petroleum’s address to the nation was an utterly empty one, much in the same way that Jonah and Eric’s rhetoric on this pathetic blog is. The federal government of this Democratic Party Administration attempted to pass all the blame onto BP for their own failed policies, in much the same way that liberal Democrats Marie, Eric, and Jonah try to pass all the blame onto Wingnut Sarah Palin and her Far Right Wing crowd. Hysterical DP Centrism just has so few real answers to anything these days.

    It just won’t work anymore. The Democrats have no answer for any of the pressing problems of the day. This blog is dead in cyberspace because it has tied itself stupidly to a dying and paralyzed DP. Barack Petroleum is the simple writing on the wall and illustrated that no only is the Gulf of Mexico a gigantic dead zone, but so are the Democratic Party allied blogs.

    Dear Pilardisfunction,
    You’ve become nothing but a wacko troll with your repetitive baseless accusations. Clearly NMT doesn’t interest you, and by the inanity of your comments it appears that complexities are not your forte. Perhaps you should seek more monochromatic pastures.

    I know you’re not usually as dumb as this, but unless you can quit boring us with your unceasing name-calling that we’re just “liberal-dems”, we’ll block you like any other troll.

  6. Avatar Pilarerecto says:

    You wouldn’t be the first group of Democratic Party liberals to ban those who disagree with them, Eric?

    ‘You’ve become nothing but a wacko troll with your repetitive baseless accusations.’

    No, you simply just don’t want me to criticize the Democratic Party as I do, because it alienates you from many of the people that you surround yourself with. They are all lesser of two evil types, and I was the only one who wasn’t. In your ‘tribe’, that makes me expendable I guess?

    Plus, I also have the unfortunate habit (from your POV) of pointing out how you like to ensnare people into confrontations with cops thinking that that is all the max in being radical and what not. Plus I also call you out on your frequent excursions into the terrain of not being just antiZionist but being antiJewish, don’t I? All reasons to censure what I have to say by banning me from NMT.

    If my ‘accusations’ were ‘baseless’ as you say they are, then you and Jonah would have not any problem tearing them apart gleefully on this blog, as you would do. But far from being baseless in content, they have the foundation of me having collaborated with you for several years writing for NMT, so I know you in and out like a book, Eric. That’s what you really can’t take. I know when you’re being honest and when you’re not being that.
