The Puppet-Masters and their pet Turkey, double-dealing.

They condemn those of us in America who rebel against their fascist Corporate leadership and presumption of ownership of every aspect of our lives, calling it “Freedom” while their Pig-Slaves break our heads with clubs and plastic bullets. And in the case of Oscar Grant, lead and copper bullets.
While cheering rebellions in countries which have denied “deprived” the Poor Little Rich Boys like Halliburton, Exxon-Mobil, British Petroleum, Royal Dutch, Shell, “stolen” their claim to have Corporate Control over their ports and their oil. And they actually finance and organize the so-called “spontaneous” rebellions like in Libya and now, Syria. Never mind they’re also paying Other Peoples Money And Lives to put down REAL grass roots movements in Iraq and Afghanistan and Yemen… And Turkey.
Turkey is now paying back their Corporate Overlords for the U.S. and NATO PUBLICLY FUNDED Terror War against the Kurds and Albania. The Slave-Caliph Recep Tayyip Erdogan condemns Syria for responding violently to violent attacks while continuing to suppress, with the help of his Puppet Masters in London and Washington, the Kurdish People actually having a right to life.
Lick them Pentagon Boots, “caliph” Erdogan. They’re your masters and you are their dog. Just like the New Puppet Regime in Libya, and the somewhat more established Puppet Regimes in Tel Aviv, Kabul, and Baghdad.
Be the little whipped hound for racist bastards who call you “ragheads” and “sand-niggers” and “muzzle monkeys”.
You might wear golden chains and a gold collar, but they’re still a collar and chain.
Just like the Oakland, Denver, Colorado Springs and New York Police departments violently suppressing freedom here, in the very homeland of your puppet-masters and, at their bidding.

Cain being charged on sex, but not the Murder and Robbery and Slavery

He’s paid to support War, it’s the base of Capital.
Now they’ve got some sex accusations brought to bring him down. As heinous as rape is, or the statutory rape of an employee or job candidate as a condition of being hired…
There’s the literally countless murders of civilians including children done to support the lavish lifestyle of the Corporate Class. It would pale in comparison to even one such wanton murder. It’s drinking from the same fount, though, War, Slavery, Prostitution, Rape… but so far there’s a thunderous silence booming from the Right over any and all of those issues. To raise the issue that War is equivalent to any of the other crimes, or even a solid foundation to mask and enable them, has been political suicide since the time of the Athenians. The beating of War drums awakens and energizes people who only vote on emotion, and Capital is subsidized by War. It cannot survive without war, it’s not a self-sustaining system as the “Invisible Hand Free Market” proponents claim.

To take away another persons freedoms, rights or properties by force is called Robbery, yet that’s what Capital does by renaming “robbery” as “regime change”, declaring whole nations to be “outlaws” or “rogues” because they don’t allow Corporate ownership of their national holdings. Just how DID “our” oil get under THEIR sand? Capitalists like Cain, and McCain, other persons who are paid to champion and advance the so-called self-supporting “free” market, are collecting welfare on a massive scale.

They LIE by renaming conquest as liberation, Servile knee-jerk enforced “patriotism” as Freedom, using the word Nationalism to justify taking away the national sovereignty of everybody else.

They embroil themselves in the Organized Crime that IS Corporate Rule.

But to come out and SAY it, means you’ll never be elected anywhere and you’ll never get the privilege of being one of the Corporate Slaves.

Not a bad trade off.

Police attack Occupy Oakland and Occupy Atlanta

Not so good news from Atlanta and Oakland where popo busted up the occupation with tear gas and swinging clubs. This in spite of the fact that no violent acts or threats of violence had come from the occupiers.
I’ll preface this next statement, because some on the MightMakesRight Wing don’t have very good reading skills, Tear Gas is sometimes lethal just as Nerve Gas(es) are not universally lethal, many people have died from tear gas and many people have survived being gassed with The Other.
It’s not a question of whether Tear Gas is lethal but a mere question of relative lethality. Much like the difference between being shot with a .38 special and being shot with a 12 gauge shotgun and that relative to being shot several times with a belt fed machine gun.
The Oakland PIGS, famous for hiring a white supremacist from the former Rhodesia who subsequently MURDERED an American Black Man, Oscar Grant, by shooting Mr Grant in the back while he was laying on the concrete…. Then let him get away with that murder through a deliberately botched investigation (Blue Wall)…

Stated that the Oakland Occupation was “a danger to the public” so they used poison gas on the CITIZENS involved in constitutionally protected free speech and freedom peaceably to assemble. And arrested 140 of the citizens for daring to criticize their Wall Street whoremasters.
Thus making sure that the only medical statements about the injuries suffered by the Citizens would come from the Jail Doctors, in other words: Their Fellow Pigs who can Always be counted on to join them in the Blue Wall.

“gassing their own citizens” is Officially the reason for which Saddam Hussein was hanged, with the full blessings and unofficially at the command of the American Corporate Government who had supplied the gas in the first place.

Unofficially his “crime” was not being Pinocchio to the Wall Street Government’s Gepetto.

The same reason Occupy is being attacked with lethal gas across America and in every country over which Wall Street claims ownership.

How DARE the puppets tear off their strings and declare themselves to be Real People!

In the spirit of AIM, entrepreneurship and Our Father Who is Art, in the Intersection

One of the Idolatrous Statues downtown is of Gen Winfield Scott. The placard reads that he was an entrepreneur, a “self made” millionaire.
Bullshit. I was wondering where I had heard the name before. He was the officer in charge of the Cherokee Removal. He got his money and his land grants at the point of the rifles and bayonets of the Publicly Paid Soldiers he commanded, same as the Horses Ass on the Horses Back in the middle of the intersection of Platte and Nevada. All their land and railroad wheeling and dealing was Subsidized Corporate Welfare and the point needs to be stressed more often. Especially as the Wall Street class warfare heats up and the Perpetual Whiners in the Ruling (for now) Class about how they worked hard to get control of the economy of the world grows ever louder and more shrill.
The Warrior Class is drawn from the ranks of the Other Slaves. Those of the Pentagoons who think they “clawed their way to the top”, the vast majority are like Robert E. Lee, who graduated West Point and nobody supposedly gave him any preferential treatment because his Grandpa was the first commandant. Or John McCain who supposedly got no preferential treatments just because his daddy was an Admiral. I recently witnessed the struggle of a young would-be cadet to get into the Air Force Academy, and despite having an exemplary scholastic record and a long family history of Military Service, was still denied entrance. The notion that you get into any of the Academies by your own merit is just another lie perpetrated by the “elite” who want the peasants to actually believe that they’re better than the Peasants, thus more deserving of the riches and power bestowed on them, at Government Administered Taxpayer Expense.

So it was with Generals Scott and Palmer. They were no more “Self Made” men than Paris Hilton or Jenna Bush.

Nineteen years

That’s how long it’s been. I fell, at work, on this date 19 years ago.
Broke the talus, cuboid, and fourth metatarsal on the right foot and dislocated the foot (it looked like Joe Theissman’s ankle when the Cowboys got him)(and then lost the game with zero points anyway) and my left tibial plateau. (man I was messed up from the pain last night, I had his name written as Jes)
As horrendous as that damage was, it could actually have been treated.
They patched the bones together into more or less anatomical position then told me the screws and plate they used would be taken out in two years, and with therapy I would make a good recovery.
The pendejo who had the bright idea of saving money by not buyng a second ladder for the second jobsite, and instead taking the ladder to one site and leaving us to walk up and down a conveyor belt like a ramp, promised he would make it right on the medical care. Well, danged if that ol’ boy didn’t just sell his company to his brother and skip state so as not to pay me a damn thing. The Mega-Rich excusez moi Tera Rich (Halliburton who have done more than a trillion dollars worth of business) who rented me out like a piece of equipment to the aforementioned Pendejo dissolved the subsidiary who had directly paid me 1/6th of what the customers paid for my labor. Kind of an 82% payroll tax paid directly to the employer for the privilege of lining their pockets.

They dissolved that subsidiary because they were cheating the workers and the government. And the customers but they’ve done that since forever. And since most of the customers ARE the government, well…
Neat little scam where they deducted our income and Social Security taxes then never paid them to the relevant agencies nor did they report them. They bilked the taxpayers for millions and none of their Board of Directors ever spent an hour in jail. One law for the Rich and another, harsher law for those of us who made them rich.
So no insurance, no workmans compensation, no job and no way to work for the next 5 years and, no medical treatment. I went back to work, when I THOUGHT it was well enough to do so, because that’s what Workers do. You know the ones, those of us the Rich say are “leeches” and “parasites”. Even at work, because the job I got was Highway Cleanup, the Rich Bitches in their SUVs would roll past us and throw their trash out the window right where we had just cleaned, tell their retarded little Piglets that we were “Bums” and yell at us to “get a job”.
Meanwhile the right talus and the (so I thought) uninjured left talus were decaying in my feet.
It was more than 14 years after the accident that I was approved for SSI and Medicaid and could get meaningful treatment for the feet. Way too late.

The Rich Bitch Morons and their now-grown Nasty Little Piglets who they taught to hate working class people, still think of me as a “bum” for not being able to work for them any longer, not so much as picking up the trash they throw out their windows like the filthy slovenly bitches they truly are. They organize their Tea Party even in so-called “Christian” churches, to try to force the People to drop any social programs and to formally declare me to be legally a “bum”.
The damage done to my foot is by now possibly irreversible but they don’t feel a moments guilt for feasting on the blood of workers. And still believe they’re rich because they’re “smarter” or in some other way superior to us.

You know what, TeaTard so-called “christian” Hate Freaks?
On this 19th anniversary of breaking an honest worker, y’all Corporate Whores can just line up and take turns helping yourselves to a Texas sized all you can eat buffet of Kiss My Liberal Ass.
And you can tell your Hate-Speech pastors that in Church tomorrow.

You LITERALLY God Damned parasites.

Obama sez: “The nation of Libya now belongs to OUR oil companies”

Actually he said “to the Libyan people”.
They’re also saying not a single (American and therefore more important than any Libyans) life was lost.
Yet another mass murder for profit.
Meanwhile, Libya had been the main contributor of humanitarian aid to Africa whereas the AMERICAN “aid” has largely been in the form of weapons, killing, let them starve, take all their raw materials, and kill anybody who objects.
The funding for the Libyan aid came from Libyan oil, nationalized and the REAL reason for the attacks on Libya over the past 4 decades. Can’t have any nation own the resources of that nation, that would be socialism and capitalism can’t survive unless they violently stomp out any other economic model.
Capital is NOT a self sustaining system, it has to be subsidized, at public expense, with war and other forms of Murder. Capitalism takes more public money than socialism ever could and gives it to arrogant rich Socially Retarded Animated Sphincters like the Koch Brothers.
Now that the oil is going to be given, more corporate welfare, to BP and Exxon and Shell, where is the aid money to Africa going to come from?
Sure as Hell isn’t going to be from the Oil Companies. They only take, and never give back. Fucking THIEVES who get other people doing their murders and robberies for their profit.
It’s a shameful day for America, one of many.

Sacred Cows and scapegoating the Almighty (dollar)

I mentioned that the terms Sacred Cow and Scapegoat are used completely opposite their original meanings in the American Vernacular.
And it goes well with my usual contention that people who demand that everybody speak English should, for conscience sake, actually learn to speak it themselves.
“sacred cows” aren’t something safe from sacrifice, like the cattle in India, who aren’t actually worshipped but are instead considered honored citizens, they’re the cattle designated to be sacrificed in the Jewish Temple. The “scapegoat” was a goat designated by the priesthood of the same Temple (originally Tabernacle) to have all the sins of the people laid on him, in the form of the priests laying hands on him…. and then set free, bearing the sins of the people away.
If that sounds like needless mumbo jumbo consider: the standard at the time of Moses was to make a HUMAN (usually child) sacrifice.
Ol’ Moe suddenly looks more like a liberal, don’t he?
Oft the sounds fall upon mine ears “If those stupid Hindus would just kill their Sacred Cows nobody would be hungry”
Not so. In order to support a beef centered diet like we’ve got now in America, they would have to do what America did. Conquer a whole bunch of foreign lands, some of which, like Texas and the rest of the Western States, are incorporated into the U.S., but mostly are foreign satrapies like Brazil, Costa Rica, oh, hell, why not say it out loud, sing it with me class, All The Banana Republics in All The World. They would have to destroy 3 times as much of the ecology as we’ve destroyed in our subsidized support af the Beef and Dairy industries.

Which by the way, the United States Military has already laid claim to every acre of land that can be used for Beef production anyway so if they wanted to do that, they’d have to re-conquer all the Banana Republics the U.S. Army has Shocked and Awed into submission errr I mean “liberated and made free” or some such bullshit. And twice as many more. Thus igniting World War Last. Beef isn’t feeding the world, it’s starving the world. Would you like fries with that?
Plus they’d have to educate and put in place a helluva lot of Cardiologists.
Beef. It’s what’s clogging your arteries.

George Bush trusted and funded the Pakistan Military…

Even though they killed far more citizens of Pakistan than all resistance groups combined even if you count in the Chair Force Office Warriors with their drone strikes as Insurgent actions rather than Propping up the Pakistani Puppet.
So, little recent (like, this morning) revelations that the compound taken out by the Navy SEALs was on a Pakistan Military Base, one thought being that our relationship with their Army should be re-evaluated.
How honest and in depth is that revelation going to be? The Chimpleton and his not-as-stupid father had lots of contracts in oil-field construction and maintenance given to the bin Laden family, administered no doubt by Halliburton KBR. Their tame puppet military was given carte blanche to slaughter “their own” people, much like Saddam Hussein was given a similar license until his oil franchise invaded the Corporate Domain of another U.S. owned “sovereign” Puppet Dictator. The way the U.S. Army was given Carte Blanche to take out “their own people” if they happened to wear dark skin and have Native Tribal affiliations.
The compound was described a few times as being a multi-million dollar affair. That would be big money anywhere, but in a country known for (American) Corporate Wage Slavery more so.
That leads to a “what if” situation and it not only reflects bad on the current administration, but all the way back to Reagan. And in particular the Father and Son Bushwacker team. And Generally Betrays-us who was just anointed Feudal Warlord of the CIA.

Are we to believe that “fiscal conservatives” who would bean count Americans out of our very existence, saying that Health Care, pensions and even the obscenely low Minimum Wage are far too expensive for “us” to maintain, would somehow miss a multimillion dollar compound built basically on THEIR private stomping grounds and guarded (only) by The Pakistani Army…

Is Generally Betrays-us now poised to sell out his Pakistani connections so they don’t snitch him off? Like other operations against (former) Puppet Dictators like Manuel Noriega and Saddam Hussein…

Were he and the rest of the Pentagon crew blowing smoke, as they usually do, lying about maybe, you know, KNOWING where the body or the living person of Usama bin Laden was all this time, because they were paying his rent and his security guards to keep him there until it was convenient to ‘have him killed”?

Did the Navy, who unleashed the SEALs to do the murder, know for the past 8 years where their Dehumanized “target” was? And were content to have so many of “their own” privately owned, publicly funded Seamen and Marines slaughtered to keep up the pretense?

The first and most important piece of evidence is “did the suspect have a motive?”
Yes, they did. They announced beforehand that they wanted this war in order to maintain American (and British, until they could figure a way to screw the British Mob) Corporate Mafia in complete power over the entire economy of the world. Not just oil but they made the blatant point that Oil reserves being privatized rather than owned by sovereign nations was essential to that goal.
Motive: Check

Means: Oh yeah. They had a blank check. Check

Alibi: Hell no. Check

But what about that long-standing “We’re always the good guys, our Military Officers would never sell out the soldiers under their command like that, nor the American Civilians” bullshit?

A history of being Morally above such actions: HELL NO! Check

Should I bother to sneer at their alleged Humane Treatment of the Conque errr Liberated peoples in all “our” wars…. what do you think? Check

Lucy, you got some ‘splainin to do….

Has Faulkner bin beatin’ his old lady?

Who knows? Gary Faulkner will undoubtedly get more Due Process from Colorado’s courts (Go ahead, Gary, THANK us “bleeding heart do-gooder Liberals” for not just turning over Due Process meekly and without protest to your Fascist Whore-lords) than he was willing to give Osama bin Dead_for_8_years.
Which is more to the point, but if the un-named by reporters female who was alleged to have been assaulted by him (and given more than one injury) is his wife and he did smack her around, Mrs Faulkner, forget that life insurance policy you’re waiting to collect, ditch his crazy ass. It ain’t worth it, baby.
Meanwhile, he made some cryptic statements back in June about “Wait until August, then you’ll see”. August ended a month and a half ago and the most anybody has said about Osama is that stupid faked up picture the F.B.I. tried to push off on the rest of the world.
And an admission, once it was shown to be a retouched picture of a Spanish member of parliament, that they don’t have a single picture of Osama from anytime in the last 8 years.
Almost 9 years now. So, Mr Stupid Crazoid Faulkner, how the hell were you intending to know if the “ay-rab towel head sand-nigger” you would have ended up murdering was in fact Osama bin Laden? The God-Damned Freakin’ Bureau Of Incompetence DOESN’T EVEN KNOW WHAT HE LOOKS LIKE but YOUR stupid ass was going to commit murder in the Tribal Autonomous Region,

and then run around like an idiot with some vague idea that the lying-ass United States departments of State, Defense and Justice were going to back you up on it? The Pathans would have been parading your pin-sized head on a stake for a week after your very short trial.

That’s just on the very off chance that Gary Faulkner will read this or more likely have one of his Responsible Grown-ups read it for him.

For his fan club who think it was a good idea, and who get all their information on Islam, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Arabs, other Muslims (an Arab would stand out like a sore thumb in Afghanistan or Pakistan, like a Guatemalan tribal leader would in Berlin) consider this, o ye Expert Ones… your Expert Psycho-Social Profile Experts like Bill O’Reilly and Glenn Beck, neither of whom know the least little thing about Islam, don’t know any Muslim PEOPLE, don’t speak read or write Arabic, or Hebrew, or Aramaic, or any of those other Religious Languages they claim to be Authorities therein…

According to the Profile Osama bin Laden is a glory-hound who wants his own name on everybody’s lips and wants the entire world to recognize him as a great Religious and Political Super-Leader.

Wouldn’t you think, just maybe, that a glory-hound like that might want to have his verified picture taken regularly? If, that is, he were still alive?
It seems to me, you know, that as long as they can hold up a picture or other representation of the Bogus Boogieman Osama the Corporate “leaders” can continue to collect huge amounts of money with their own very expensive to us but costs them NOTHING “hunt for Osama” and “Global War on Terror” and they can also use stupid people like Gary Faulkner to draw attention from their own very serious ongoing Crime Spree. Kind of like the Myth of Goldberg from the novel 1984 by Eric Blair pen name Orwell.

Faulkner, dude…
You’re lucky that the actual Pakistani military caught up to you first.
Now the Colorado police have rescued you a second time.

So let’s recap.
The people who are in charge of putting out the propaganda don’t know even if Osama bin Laden is actually alive, and do know he’s probably been dead for more than 8 years.

The pictures of him training at and training others at Paramilitary Bases in Afghanistan, those bases look suspiciously like U.S. Army bases and don’t exist anywhere in Afghanistan.

Osama might be just as mythical a construct as those bases.

The “Experts” who tell us otherwise are largely Actors like Bill O’Reilly, Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, who are paid to read propaganda provided to them by people who might or maybe not believe the lies they tell the DumFoxers to pass along. And Rudi Giuliani, Sarah Palin, Mitt Romney, Huckabee, all of them supposed to be “Experienced” in fighting Terrorism, all of them actually Chickenhawks, none of whom served in the Military, and the closest one to having experienced Terrorism would be Giuliani whose claim to expertise involves him getting skunked twice in the same location allegedly by the same group. No proof of Osama there.

Also each and every one of those lying Chickenshit jackasses have made the claim that there’s a million pounds of Nerve Gas hidden by Saddam Hussein.

Ron Paul = Reagan = Beck = Palin = Endless War For Capital

just not, you know, according to Capitalist “free” Market Suck Justin Raimondo who wants us to all stop focusing on anything else but the fact that the war is unwinnable. And is costing mucho dinero. Which of course it IS, on both counts, but what Saint Ron Paul’s Acolyte fails to mention is his Master rode into power in the 80s, along with Newt Gingrich and other unsavory types, bought into power by the Reaganite Sucks who started the war. The Iraq invasion and Afghan Invasion are nodes of a war started 29 years ago when Reagan first took office and brought in the “free” market Capitalism Reign of Error in full unregulated force.
The things Mr Paul instructs Raimondo to tell us poor stupid peasants are that we’re not supposed to focus any attention on any of the other nodes of the Beast they and Bush and now the current War Cabinet serve. We’re to Just Say No to Workers Rights, Public Health, Health Care, Social Justice in any form, and if we burn all these issues on the altar of the god Capital and it’s Unholy Priesthood starring, of course, Ron Paul and his bootlicking Acolyte J. Raimondo… they’ll end the War for us.
Until, of course, it becomes convenient for Capital to make Imperialistic War once again. They very Imperiously, in fact, Demand such obeisance to their agenda.

In the link at the top, Raimondo suggests that Capitalists such as his Tea Party allies, the ones who DON’T oppose the war in any way, the ones who oppose the census, which gives us the data about how MUCH Poverty, one in three Americans, actually exists… but they should take full control of the Anti-War movement. What will Mr Paul and his sycophants do to silence the rest of us?
We already know what their Ku Klux Klown comrades did in Kentucky, lynching a Census Worker at the instigation of Messieurs Beck and Limbaugh and with the full Cooperation-by-Silence of Monsieur Paul and Madame Palin.

I for one am not going to forget that the Ron Paul Klan including his (equally) Racist Son stood with Ronald Reagan not only planting the roots of the Imperial Wars he now claims to oppose. Or his bravely taking a stand against Workers Rights, or against Health Care Reform, or any other challenge to the very source of HIS war. Which is Unrestrained Capitalist Greed. He has stood with the Death-Mongers far too long to pretend that he doesn’t know them or serve them. In short, he lies his ass off, as he invites us in to worship at the Temple of The Almighty (dollar)

I can easily see, too, how killing off True Freedom in America, like the rights of Workers to organize and bargain collectively for fair wages, to try to pull themselves out of the Poverty for which Capital offers no hope… he and his fellow Reaganites offer many platitudes like pulling ourselves up by the non-existent bootstraps they’ve already stolen from us through 3 decades of constant wage slavery.

How long before the Extremist Rightwing Conspiracy theory?

Because FOX and their subsidiaries like the “Astroturf” TeaBags, employers of Professional and Amateur Liars on a massive scale, would have somebody within their ranks who would think it a good idea to spring the notion that the recent spate of Oil Well disasters were “rigged” not by the sheer STUPIDITY of the Oil Corporations and their Greedy minions, but are instead a sinister plot by Anarchists and Environmentalists in order to embarrass the Oil Corporations.
Of course they wouldn’t have proof or even Evidence, because their intended audience is really stupid to begin with. And there would be no way to gain any such evidence other than fabricating it, like they fabricated that “Kenyan birth certificate” a few months ago.

Truth would not be on their side so they’ll avoid anything resembling Truth. It’s their way.
It would also run counter to their argument if anybody on their side said this, so I’ll say it:
Those of us in the Environmentalist Left don’t make money from shit like that. The Oil Corporations DO. The Anti-war Left doesn’t make huge profits off Non-War, (although every war that ISN’T fought is a HUGE profit for everybody in the world, including us. Trickle Up economics) And the Oil Corporations, on the other make profits that are the worst kind of Obscenity from every war that IS fought.
Since every good Conspiracy Theory, especially those that involve actual crimes, involves somebody making a profit.

Oil Company/TeaBag hypocrisy in Action

Just before ANOTHER Gulf coast oil rig explosion, and following the example of FOX News Demagogue Glenn Beck, the parent corporation of the Oil Rig in question bussed in employees of their company, Just Like Fox Did at Beck’s Washing Tundy See lie-fest… to a “grass roots” political rally against making Oil Corporations actually use safety equipment and obey actual laws. It should be noted that this “grassroots” protest was coordinated by Fox News and their related Corporate Whores, to be an adjunct of Beck’s Canned Nurnberg Rally.
And in Typical Fox/Beck/TeaBag Hypocrite Fashion the ONLY industry and the ONLY people they give a Rat’s Ass about are their Corporate Sponsors. The rest of the people in the region, whose livelihoods were devastated, and the people of the whole WORLD who are going to have to face the consequences of their Corporate Stupidity for decades, perhaps centuries, to come, well, we can all go fish. Oil Company Profits are supreme, Fox says so and we Peasants had better get used to it. The Story:

ThinkProgress points out that both Mariner Energy and Apache Corp. were at a rally just yesterday to protest the Obama administration’s temporary moratorium on offshore drilling. ThinkProgress pulled the following from the Financial Times

Companies ranging from Chevron to Apache bussed in up to 5,000 employees to the Houston convention centre to underline to Washington the industry’s contribution to the country. …

“I have been in the oil and gas industry for 40 years, and this administration is trying to break us,” said Barbara Dianne Hagood, senior landman for Mariner Energy, a small company. “The moratorium they imposed is going to be a financial disaster for the gulf coast, gulf coast employees and gulf coast residents.”

and this administration is trying to break us,

Yeah, right. Lying Bitch. By the way, I don’t call most women “Bitch” and even have been known to call so-called Men “Bitches”. Just, you know, throwing their stupidity back at them.
They throw the grenade, I pick it up, pull the pin, and toss it back.

But the Obama Administration extended their leases and granted them new leases, hardly the actions of somebody who is an Anti-Corporate Socialist as they paint him to be. When they break away from calling him other names they consider to be damning, like Black, African American, and Muslim. They have to break away from their Racist and Religious Bigotry to toss in the lie about him being Anti-Corporate. Which they’re loath to do, as the Racist and Religious bigotry sells better to their intended audience.

In case you didn’t follow any of the links, what happened is right after this Pity Us For The Wealthy Are So Badly Victimized rally, another Oil Well exploded in the Gulf of Mexico.
Something the Oil-Company controlled Media are reluctant to report.

Generals say “we’ll only resume combat operations in Iraq if..

..the Iraqi people reject our Puppet Dictatorship. Meanwhile we’ll keep our bases there to intimidate them into not developing a rebellious attitude, like thinking they’re good enough to rule themselves without our intereference. And of course make sure the Iraqi government lives up to the agreement we forced them to sign to give all their oil to Our Great And Noble Oil Corporation Masters. Alle Sieg Heil am das Oil Corporations! HEIL! HEIL! HEIL!”
So, if the Iraqi people use that Freedom To Obey and vote for people the Oil Company Pentagon Puppets have forbidden them to elect, the Army is going to go back in and “liberate” them again.
And the Corporate Death Squads like Blackwater will continue to patrol without any possibility of ever being prosecuted in U.S. Courts for the murders, tortures and other crimes they commit.
And them there Sand N——s better not try to prosecute any Blackwater “employees” either, because that “freedom” America The Corporate Puppet Army gave them doesn’t extend to actual, you know, Freedom. Alle Sieg Heil am Prince Erik von Blackwater!
