Whenever I would say "The US Government works for corporations, not we the people"...posted by The Vidiot @ 7:18 AM Permalink I'd get these sort of quizzical, stupefied faces staring back at me. Not any more. Here is your proof:
Kelly Cobiella reports that a CBS News team was threatened with arrest by Coast Guard officials in the Gulf of Mexico who said they were acting under the authority of British Petroleum.So, here we have a private company, BP, utilizing the military forces of its host company, the Coast Guard, to do their policing for them.
Still think I'm nuts?
