Latest BP offer: Fire the employees who wear protective gear while cleaning up their toxins

Because it looks bad on television reports if people around the world see that their Toxic Waste is actually Toxic Waste. There’s more to it than just threatening their (Temporary) Workers, those who are being forced to choose between risking their lives for the Good Image of BP and starving, losing their homes, money and eventually their freedom. There are unenforceable laws on the books in Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida that make it illegal to be unemployed and in debt, and they’re punishable by confinement at Hard Labor. Meaning, they’ll be GIVEN, with no charge to the company, as Slaves, administered by BP affiliate corporations like WackenHut and Corrections Corporation of America. Private prisons built partly with Inmate Slave Labor by another Affiliate Corporation, Halliburton KBR.

Seems the TeaBags and other Corporate Suck Groups back Governors Jindal, Crist, and Rick GoodHair (and probably the Alabama and Mississippi governors) to be able to annul and over-ride Supreme Court Decisions, like the ones which made the Vagrancy Laws and Debt-as-a-crime laws unenforceable.

They’re already using Texas and the other states’ Prisoners, unpaid Inmate Slave Labor, pressed into working on the oil spill.

And using Public Funded Police and courts as Private Enforcement of their “right” to censor reporting on the Real Story.

The Horror Show story, not the commercials for Sea World showing happy, sparkling clean Healthy Pelicans and other marine animals being released onto a sparkling, pristine beach.

Meanwhile, Lake Pontchartrain, staple of the non-Oil industries in Acadiana… contaminated. Those of you who have traveled east on I-10 recognize that as “that huge freakin’ lake with the bridge over it”

The link at the top is a video that was aired on Olberman and a petition to the President to actively enforce workplace safety laws over the objections of BP. As it looks now, the Chairman of BP is Bitch SlaPping the Obama administration and the U.S. Coast Guard and Navy.

That SHOULD get even the far-right lunatic fringe on board, because the last time the British bitch slapped the U.S. Navy was during the war of 1812. (by American naming standards and by U.S. military tradition)

Meanwhile Queen Bess2 addressed the UN and laid a wreath at the 9-Eleven monument. Maybe she should be publicly offered a plate of Fresh Caught Gulf Seafood. I hear the Sea Turtle Flambee is excellent. She could legally dine on Endangered Species for the first time in 50 years. Peasant under Glass excluded.

Military Intelligence Inaction

The Coast Guard is going to set fire to the oil slick from the Deepwater corporate boo-boo. Deliberately. You know, the Coast Guard DO get first pick of the finest confiscated Recreational Psychopharmaceuticals.

While their official Irrationale is that they’ve screwed up the ecosystem so badly that this little bonfire will be just another Fart In The Breeze, so to speak, the Unofficial Reason probably works out to be something like “Wow, man, far out, the colors, man, the colors!”

Speaking of colors, about the only thing “green” about the military is their uniforms.

Maybe Glenn Beck and the other Morons at Fox will have a new conspiracy theory to work with,as soon as they get their monthly quota of that Coast Guard dope, that is.

See, Liberal Agents Provocateurs have infiltrated not only the top levels of the Political spectrum but also the Banking, Mining and Petroleum industry and are deliberately sabotaging them from the top down, and that somehow Greenpeace and MoveOn and PETA and just for giggles the American Cancer Society have deliberately gotten Goldman Sachs and Massey and Deepwater to make really stupid forking decisions, just to embarrass the “conservatives”.

Let’s go forward with that, let’s say that Al Gore deliberately set up George Bush by throwing the election in 2000.

The possible combinations are endless. Pointless, too, but then, we’re watching Capital eat itself so any inane statement about it would stick if thrown hard enough.
