B’Man’s Guest Post: BP’s Top Kill

Recently, Greg Molenaar added a little ditty to a post and I thought I should feature it in its own post.

BP’s Top-Kill

Who knew when BP said, “Top Kill” ~
alleged to plug the errant well,
that we humans were their target too…
a billion gallons in the brew.

Who knew within the oil sludge,
Was a President who would not budge…
who would not lead his people free
from breathing all this chemistry.

It’s More than oil for our cars,
More than coast line that was ours
More than birds’ feet stuck in tars,
It’s Korporate Kollusion.

It’s Benzene in the air we breathe
A President we can’t believe,
A company bent to deceive,
a thousand parts per illusion.

Who’s Corporate Karma is so feeble,
Who Carries “Top Kill” to the people?
BP, like India’s Union Carbide
‘To the valley of death 10,000 ride.

Oil disbursed or humans scattered,
To BP all that really mattered
Is to disburse the claims
of all you “little people.”

So Hayward gets a golden ‘chute
and runs away with all his loot.

Our president should get the boot
from all us little people.

Contrarily, did you know that the ravenous right-wing red-meaters are all over themselves trying to minimize the extent of this “leak”. Old Vlad has taken the mantle from Eric the Red for the most idiotic of the posters at RedState. The commenters are equal in their idiocy.

Hell, anyone knows that the amount of oil being “leaked” is so small that it would only “so far would fill up one-seventh (1/7th) of the volume of the Superdome“. And shit, there are a bunch of pictures, too. And videos that explain how insidious those conspiracy theorists are. Old Vlad has gone to the well on this one, hasn’t he? Will they do or say ANYTHING to support and defend the corporate control of this country? Will these fools ever realize that it is their idiocy that is helping keep the Sheople in the dark?

Of course these sycophantic fools know all of this. It is their job.

Kill Switch!

ARE YOU READY TO BE TURNED OFF?

The Senate Homeland Security Committee and the office of Governmental Affairs have approved a cybersecurity bill. Joe Lieberman and Susan Collins have co-authored bill S-3840 that says to ensure national security in a “national emergency” president Obahma or any other sitting president can pull the switch on internet access to all citizens.  PCNAA (Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act)

This bill comes at a time when fears of an evacuation of the Gulf states are on the minds of some.  Mine included!  This does little to ease those fears and is scary to me.  We need this now?  Nine years after 911 and years of war in two countries and now all of a sudden it is in our best interest to give the power to the president to shut down the internet to all of its citizens?  Is the Gulf disaster the national emergency this bill refers too?  Are any other disaster such as an earthquake, hurricane, or attack of some kind all that is needed to implement this law?  How serious does a situation have to get before this goes into effect?  Who decides?  I would like to know more about this and not see this voted for, just to see what is in it!

This bill now goes to congress.  This can’t be a popular bill with GOP’s, but do they have the power to stop it?  Do they want to stop it?  The health care bill made it through, so it stands to reason this will also.  I thought the homeland security act took care of this?  How much more do they want?  Is something on the horizon or is it just the fear of what the future could bring if this is not passed?  How about a bill or ‘act’ that actually looks out for the citizens of this country instead of the elite?  Will this cover cell phone communications?  The old timey land lines some people still have?  The postal service?  What about our right to assemble?  Peacefully of course.

Is the internet already censured?  I don’t see a lot of pics or vids coming out of the area around the Gulf as it is.  No fly zones and people told to stay back from the clean up area?

Clean up worker at Fourchon Beach

Look at what this guy is wearing as he vacuums up oil.  That has got to be a hot and nasty job.  They are hiring everyday!  The pay is decent and you get to work outside on the beach!  I saw one of these the other day with a girl in a bikini and a guy like this right beside her.  (Lost the link)  I can’t see any American supporting this bill.  Write your congress critter and tell them to vote NO!  E-mail list of all congressmen. Hurry before the call for “lights out” hits us!
