Bernie HerPin, Billionaire Propagandist Rush Limbaugh, have a lot in common

–Like business ties to BP. The USOC deal the City Council made was also a BP front.
 
Then there’s their Anti-Worker ARROGANCE like this. Neither I nor Miss Johnnie can actually WALK anywhere. Both of us thrown to the wolves by the Corporatists, told that the medical treatments that could have kept us from becoming this badly disabled were “Too Expensive” and the Governments which THEY own, and are going to spend BILLIONS to stack with even more of their Greedy Political Whores, such as at local level our entire City Council, enforce that Corporate Welfare decision with “right to work” Slavery and “Tort Reform”.

My feet were broken by negligence on the part of Halliburton, who were making 4 times as much from my labor as I was paid, and wouldn’t pay so much as Workmans Compensation Insurance before the fact, fat chance they’d pay any of their bills for their Negligence afterwards.

AP and other Tame Propaganda “news” sources for BP come off with an “aw, gee shucks, it ain’t that bad, look, the Seafood Industry isn’t suffering as bad (at one level) See, there’s these chefs who are proving the shrimps and such are safe to eat, don’t y’all worry your heads”. Not mentioning the massive hole the Bastards Punched into the Ecosystem.

Miss Johnnie and I were in a cab going to the store. When I travel around town with her, because she can’t ride a bicycle anymore, it would be a choice of WALK which NEITHER of us can do, ride the Bus which doesn’t run on weekends or after 6 any other day, or take a cab.

The Cabby is one of those Socially Inept types who feels he has to make his passengers listen to Rush Limbaugh spout his SHIT about how those Poor, poor misunderstood Rich BITCHES at BP are taking such a huge hit from all these Greedy Freeloaders who expect to Be Paid for the damage that BP did to their lives.
The Billionaire Pussy Professional Liar claims he’s fighting for the “little people” who had invested their money into BP.
Had to fix the code on it because everything from this point was in All Bold fonts.
Why should THEY have to pay for the damages which were caused by the Business Practices, just because for years they’ve had a comfortable living off exploiting the workers not only in their own corporation but every ancillary and auxiliary industry around them? Claiming that they’re Being Punished By President “socialist” Obama, the one who has obviously Been Punked by the Oil Companies, Hell, he’s extending the wars Being Publicly funded for their Private Benefit. That somehow all the Corporate Welfare that has been funneled into their pockets and by extension HIS pockets is just their due reward. And the Taxpayers who have supported their Parasite Class for so long don’t have any right to demand compensation when they break OUR ocean and OUR planet.

Meanwhile “our” City Hall representative, Bernie HerPin, says the same thing in Basically Paraphrase, that those of us who Made The Money for the Billionaire Pussies who subsequently destroyed the economy from under OUR feet, don’t deserve a God-Damn thing in compensation for it. I recognize the writing style as belonging to a certain prick who chided me for even MENTIONING that Halliburton caused my disabilities, while I was WORKING putting money in THEIR POCKETS, much more money than they were putting in mine, and said that any claims I make for the damages done to me…

Said I was “looking to get a sack of gold” by exploiting their wealth.

Same as he claimed in his email to us that we don’t deserve to Be Paid wages (including Bus Service) that don’t even equal what WE have to pay to LIVE. We don’t have the right, in other words, to organize ourselves in Unions and bargain to get what it costs US to produce our services, our Labor…
Heaven forfend that we should actually make MORE than that, actually profit from our labor.
Breaking even, you see, and actually getting ahead, making a profit, that’s a Big Privilege that’s only afforded to the Bitchy Phonies who make their money from other peoples labor.
Bad Politicians! Very Naughty! Hell yes they need to Be Punished. I’d seriously consider relaxing my opposition to the Death Penalty just for them.
Mr Herpin and Rush and BP are basically saying “Ha-ha-hah! We broke any chance YOU PEASANTS had of working your way into wealth (which is a Capitalist MYTH in the first God-Damned place, propaganda to keep the workers happy as Underpaid Slave Labor) and we don’t have to compensate YOU anything. You should be GRATEFUL that we allow you to Be exPloited by us!”

Yassuh, Boss. Do you want us to tongue wash your Boots in aPology for our insolence before slinking out of your Royal Presence?

The entire City Council are made of such Assholes.

Would you sell your kid for 253 dollars?

That’s what the people of Bhopal India were told to do when the “compensation” was announced 24 years ago. That’s after 2 years of LawyerFights over Limited Liability and “Tort Reform”. The Reaganites including Ron Paul, the Dad-part of the Paul and Paul Father-son Hate Team, rather than celebrate the judgment of 12,400 rupees per each dead Indian, bitched and whined that it was Too Much.

The BAIL for the Guilty Parties, or at least the lower level Guilty parties, nine in all, one deceased and one “hiding” in a Country Club gated community on Long Island, was 25,000 rupees apiece. $502. For 25,000 counts of Murder. That’s three times the “official” count. The official count was 8000 initially and another 9000 since.
If Union Carbide wants to call that libel or slander, it would be up to them to prove it.

The Union Carbide Corporation, the truly guilty party, is not required to meet the responsibilities of a Real Human Citizen even though they have more “rights” than a real human citizen. Ron and Rand Paul and all the other Reaganite Corporate Sucks say Amen.

I was charged with possession of a knife that doesn’t fold up in Texas once, the bail for that was $800. The actual BOND for it was $2000. You know, that makes me feel especially hard core when my bond for merely carrying a knife was 4 times that for 25,000 counts of Capital Murder.

Incidentally, the BBC report only counts the initially killed, not those who have died subsequently. The clinic that Union Carbide opened to “treat the injured” closed about 12 years ago. The residues of that explosion and all the accumulated Union Carbide waste chemicals over the decades are still killing people. Sans the $253 payout per dead kid.

Maybe the criminals at British Petroleum will receive a stiffer payment. It would be next to impossible for the punishment to be lighter than that.
No, Really. Look up “impossible” in the dictionary and right next to it will be a picture of somebody getting a lighter slap on the wrist for a heinous crime.

But, after all, the economic victims of BP are (for now) mostly American citizens, a large part of them White and there’s even the damage to some of the Playground Beaches where the richest like to go, when their Very Important Jobs holding down their office chairs, keeping them from drifting off into space, become too wearisome and they need a break.

I figure one oil stained beach on a Private Island will fetch more in damages than 25,000 dead Indians.

BBC Headline: BP to decide

BP to make decision on ‘top kill’ plan to stem oil leak uhh… Yeah. Like they’re in a position to dictate terms. If they really ARE in a position to dictate terms then we, the people of the world, are well and truly screwed. (I was going to say “fucked” but then that would be potty mouth) I realize that “The Crown” has a large investment in BP as well as the BBC. They also have a large investment in the continuing occupation and attempted subjugation of Iraq, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Gaza and coming soon to a War Theatre near you, Iran. The term “calling the shots” almost applies, it’s really an artillery term for the person who looks to see where the shells have hit and tells the cannoneers, essentially firing blind from their perspective (deaf, too) to adjust the angles of the gun-barrels to hit the targets more precisely. The “targets” being “Human Beings” a point that I compel myself to make at every opportunity.
But who gets to “call the shots”?

Either side could logically use “OUR Troops” as pawns in this as easily as they use them as Pawns in the War. Which, incidentally, is being fought on behalf of (mostly) the Oil Industry. It wouldn’t bother me overmuch if the Emissaries of The Crown (Queen Bess2, speaking on behalf of British subjects) get all huffy and threaten to pull their part of NATO out of the Occupation. Not that they would do it any more than the behind-the-curtain puppetmasters in Washing Tundy Sea would. Plugging the hole is what needed to be done no later than a month and a half ago, before the well blew up. BP has been allowed to muck about pretending to try to stop the Killer Well but on their terms, which simply were that they would keep the bastard in production. Screw that.

They need to call it a loss. The U.S. government needs to tell them “NO” to several issues, and never mind the Killer Wails that will come up from the mouths of the British and from the BP supporters here in America.
No, you can’t salvage the production of the well.
No, you can’t drill there again, ever.
No, you can’t keep your OTHER poison dispensaries working in OUR waters, the waters that really support the entire life-support Ecosystem of the planet, thus belong to Every Son or Daughter of Adam on the face of Earth.
You no likey, we no givey damn you no likey.

They’ve already got the Corporate Suck Morons in the Tea Party movement and their sponsors and organizers at Fox News uptight about raising the arbitrary cap on liabilities given to corporations. “Yes, we can do trillions of dollars worth of damage but our liability is limited at less than a tenth of a percent of that” $750 million, was it, or did I mentally add a digit? Either way it’s obscenity.

This arrogant attitude BP and The Crown are assuming is like a declaration of war. Not against their Corporate Partners in Washington, or indeed against the people of the United States. It’s against the people of the entire World.
