And so it continuesposted by The Vidiot @ 7:41 AM Permalink It's now raining oil in Louisiana
and where they are is pretty damn close to New Orleans.
Meanwhile, BP is still using our police force as their for-hire thugs.
Last week, Drew Wheelan, the conservation coordinator for the American Birding Association, was filming himself across the street from the BP building/Deepwater Horizon response command in Houma, Louisiana. As he explained to me, he was standing in a field that did not belong to the oil company when a police officer approached him and asked him for ID and "strongly suggest[ed]" that he get lost since "BP doesn't want people filming"And the reason this damn well was drilled in the first place?
According to the Wayne Madsen Report (WMR) sources within the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the Pentagon and Interior and Energy Departments told the Obama Administration that the newly-discovered estimated 3-4 billion barrels of oil in the Gulf of Mexico would cover America's oil needs for up to eight months if there was a military attack on Iran that resulted in the bottling up of the Strait of Hormuz to oil tanker traffic, resulting in a cut-off of oil to the United States from the Persian Gulf.If you voted for Obama, you have to be embarrassed about it by now, aren't you? Nobody forced him to make that decision. He could've said what 80% of the US public would say: "Why the hell do we want to go to war with Iran?" But instead, he bowed to corporate and political interests. He's a weak piece of crap. You know it. I know it.
