The News Pauper humbly regrets his inability to post regularly. It in no way reflects on the dear readerhere is my latest attempt to say something regarding what is certain to become the most devastating disaster done to us by the Bush-Cheney Cabal.
The NP suspects British Petroleum CEO Tony Hayward is making these insane comments in order to divert attention from the fact that BP is not going to let their profits go to save a bunch of fucking turtles. Until they can cap that well and feed it into tankers, theyll let that baby spill. Hell probably get a bonus too, if he can successfully bullshit his way through the crisis and keeps those stock prices up.
I think that the South deserves to be polluted for generations. Their backward thinking and blind support of the robber barons that twisted their trust and faith and patriotism has finally come home to roost. Already there have been anecdotal stories popping up of oil-tinged rain falling in central Florida, there have also been reports of a more reliable nature telling of fisherman engaged by BP in the cleanup becoming ill with nosebleeds and respiratory ailments. How many American lives will be sacrificed to the all-powerful oil company, British Petroleum? Did we lose the Revolutionary War?
If the GOP thinks that the South will sweep them into power again simply because this accident occurred under Barack Obamas watch, they’d better think again. I predict that the presidents cool will carry him through even this horrible event. I think that even the low information reactionary will see through any attempt at steering the blame away from those actually responsible. Even with a mass media that is owned and operated by the energy concerns squelching the stories coming out and priming the memes that do come out, this event has seeped into the conversation in every room in the country. There are suddenly experts in every comment column with vast knowledge of what is being done and many predictions of varying degrees of doom about the outcome. I cant see how an entire summer of increasingly dismal news coming out of the Gulf of Mexico will contribute to the popularity of the ‘Drill Baby Drill’ bunch.
It seems that every time some really bad event takes place anywhere in the world, Dick Cheneys Halliburton is smack in the middle of it. I think this is it for BP, Halliburton, and with their demise will come an era of fierce reprisals and reassessment of the way things are done in the future. If Deadeye Dick lands in St. Helena, like Napoleon, for the rest of his natural life, thatll be icing on the cake for those of us whose peace and tranquility he has stolen forever.
