Mood: on fire
Topic: "Boycott BP"
Frodo has a few questions. Why aren't we refusing to purchase British Petroleum products? Who in the name of good sense agreed to a "cap" on damages to be paid by oil companies in the event of a catastrophic oil spill? Why aren't the tides carrying all of this crap right onto the beaches of Texas? Why haven't we, as a nation, set a deadline for British Petroleum to shut off the leak or to suffer the consequence of a government nationalization? And whatever happened to Sarah Palin?
Does anyone doubt that nationalizing their multi-billion dollar profit might change their priorities? Is there anyone who is satisfied with their planning, their response to the disaster, or even their attitude? Frodo is suggesting that we give these executives 48 hours, and not a minute more. All we have to do is declare a National Emergency, and do something similar to the actions taken by President Truman when he nationalized an entire industry.
Hasn't anyone considered a whole bunch of big fans, pointing west, right toward the Houston Ship Channel? That place was so polluted by oil leaks for decades that the surface of the water burned continuously for months on end. So why not send the problem right back to the tax-dodging, reactionary hypocrites with names like Hunt, Bush, and Graham who have been giving each other tax breaks and crippling any effort to regulate their own passage to Valhalla?
Why hasn't somebody printed a list of every member of Congress who ever voted to support a "cap" on oil company liability? We've heard from Snarkowski, Republican of Alaska, and that Republican dork from Okiehomey named Incontinent, who have argued that failure to maintain such a "cap" would hurt "mom and pop" oil companies. Holy Moley, and nobody, and Frodo means nobody, has stood up, undid a belt, turned around, and "mooned" either of them. How blatant do they have to be? They think, like Sarah Palin, that if they just recite enough words, we will get bored and go away.
Pass it around. Don't buy BP. Go to any other gasoline station. Ride a bike. Do anything, but don't give them a damn dime until they stop the leaks.
Don't buy BP.
Your life depends on it.
