This was very distrubing....

Driving into work this morning, I head this story on NPR.  I found it very disturbing; a sign of just how far this country has devolved.  I'm not sure if I should hope Mister Obama is aware of what's going on or not.  It's a sad state of affairs to be sure.

First of all... Why the fuck are BP employees calling the shots here?! Why are they standing side by side with our coast guard and police force? Are you fucking kidding me?! This is NOT what's meant by "civilian control of the military!" This has been going for some time now, and it grows ever more disturbing as time goes on. Welcome to 1984, folks. If you ever wanted to see the freedom of the press utterly destroyed, well HERE YOU GO. It’s just like George Carlin once predicted: When fascism finally comes to this country, it won’t be wearing jack-boots, it will be wearing Nike’s.

A few points, that highlight the absolute absurdity of this, from the transcript:

"You are not allowed, as a police officer, to rummage through the notebooks and photographs — not published — of newspapers," Engelberg said. "That's not how we do it in this country."
Well said, Mister Engelberg. Have you contacted the ACLU yet?

"We have more than 40,000 people working on this response," [BP spokesman Scott Dean] said. "We're working around the clock to make this situation right. And we very much want that story to be told."
Yeah – they sure do: THEIR VERSION of the story. How else does he explain away the fact that the press has been HINDERED by HIS OWN company from telling the story?! This man is not only a whore, he’s a cheap whore, and doesn’t even try to hide the fact.

The flap in Texas City over the police stop of the Pro Publica photographer involves practices initiated in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. FBI Special Agent Shauna Dunlap, of the agency's Houston field office, said that such stops have become common around sensitive sites like refineries and nuclear power plants.

"People don't think about it, but there are people out there who want to do us harm, and it's our obligation to protect our territory and these critical infrastructures that are targets," Dunlap said
Riiight… I’m sure an already demolished oil well, 5000 feet below sea level, is a really high level target on Al-Quaeda’s hit list.

...adding that the oil company had also been threatened by what she said were environmental terrorists.

"There is a heightened security around those facilities, especially with BP," Dunlap said.
Oh, I get it. It’s environmental terrorism, they're worried about. Because, yeah, again, they’d accomplish SO MUCH by screwing up the cleanup effort, after the rig had burned down, sunk, and spilled X-Million barrels of oil into the gulf. Yeah, that’s when they "eco-terrorists" would SPRING INTO ACTION.

Is our FBI really this stupid, or are they just blatantly insulting our intelligence? If "eco-terrorism" was involved AT ALL, it would have been at the BEGINNING, when the rig was still WORKING. Now, it was already shown that the initial fire was entirely the result of BP’s own negligence.  That’s been clearly established.  And that’s was the only possible oppotunity for “eco-terrorism.” Destroy the RIG. (Something that is completely without precedent, I might add!)  Not showing up three months later and sabotaging the CLEANUP. That doesn’t make any damned sense at all!

This situation is now nothing more than corporatism using out irrational fear of terrorism to PREVENT the real story from being told here. (Behold your LIBERAL MEDIA!) And the only really terrifying thing going on here, is just how much this FOREIGN (not even US-based!) corporate entity can manipulate our gov’t into doing its bidding, even getting them to violate the first amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

No only should BP’s heads roll over this (and as far as I’m concerned, that BP Corporate Whore Scott Dean should be boiled in crude-oil as an example to other professioanl liars) but there needs to be some serious investigations into the gov’t actions here; Not in dealing with the spill itself, as the right have hypocritically called for, I’ll stand by my earlier judgment that President Obama is doing exactly what he should be in terms of the cleanup, (althought how would I know otherwise, seeing as how the press has been largely shut out?!) but of the way the Coast Guard, FBI and Police have denied press access, intimidated the press, rifled though their private property without warrant or propbable cause and have conspired with BP to keep the Public minimally informed at best, and misinformed at worst. Heads should roll over that.

Hey right-wingers? THIS is what “big government” or "big borther" REALLY looks like: Corporate interests being protected over public ones. 


  1. Are you really this stupid or do you just play a dumbass on here and media matters AKA the gay mafia? If there ever is another civil war there will be nothing left of the left, and what a great day that will be.

  2. The greatest threat to the security and survival of the United States is the democrat party and its blind sheeple followers.

  3. Anon,

    Allow me to prostrate myself to your superior intellect. I mean... how could I possibly debate with so well reasoned an argument as "the gay mafia." I mean... wow... 3rd grade-level school-yard insults. I'm so hurt, I might just start crying!

    (Yeah, I'm kidding, you semi-literate baffoon.)

    Why don't you try actually making a POINT? I know it requires SOME effort, but I've met some pretty stupid people in my life who still managed to make one or two in their day. (Shit, one that comes to mind manages to get elected President.) But no... I'M a dumbass, liberals are GAY, teh Democrat Party is teh stupid... Wow. Do you have ANYTHING of substance?! Anything AT ALL?

    No? Didn't think so.

    BTW... "Sheeple?" Are you fucking FLOYD?!

    If so, you're such a moron, you don't even realise not only how utterly assinine your "reasoning" really is, but how self-contradicting it is as well! Did you seriously FINALLY come here and this is the best you can do?! I've already dealt with SHEEPLE. Do a little digging, TRY thinking for yourself for a change, and you'll realize that the epithet "SHEEP" can ONLY, EVER apply to conservatives.

    And finally, like a typical RW'er, your post here has absolutely nothing, whatsoever to do with the topic at hand. So you're not just a troll, but you're apparently an illiterate one as well.

    I normally say "welcome" and "thank you for your comment" even when I disagree with a new poster, but if this is the best you can do, you're not even worth my time to argue with. (And you didn't even give me anything to agure AGIANST!)

    So I'll confine myself to saying, "Go fuck yourself." And asking if you were born this useless or if you had to work at it.

  4. Pretty tough on a keyboard aren't you you little boy. I bet your mother's basement gets pretty funky with you being in it all day. Why don't you take your worthless shell of a body and go find a job? Or do you like living off the people's money? It is people like you, and your messiah Hussein Obama, who make America a joke around the world.

  5. LOL...

    OMG! The big meanie RW troll is back! Waaah! Make him go away mommy!

    You REALLY want to get personal? Fine, here's my life's resume: Automotive Safetey Restraints Engineer w/ 13 years experience and a Patent, MBA (with Honors), Homeowner, Taxpayer, Family Man.

    So... Nice try, but you've squandered your oppotunity to take your best shot and try to make me look stupid and ended up doing the same for yourself. Again, a reasonably intelligent person can only assume that if you HAD a SUBSTATIVE ARGUMENT, we'd have HEARD it by now. At least your insults have graduated to middle-school. You got though a post without calling me "gay." That's something, I guess.

    As for who's "tough behind the keybord?" Puh-lease. You think I can really be called out like that by an ANONYMOUS poster? REALLY? SERIOUSLY? You don't even include an e-mail address to risk getting a response sent to, so who's the REAL coward here? You're not just an illitterate troll, you're a GUTLESS one as well.

    (And to think you're actually afraid of LIBERALS! As if any of us would bother trolling YOU! That's the REALLY pathetic part!)

    Oh, and Floyd? As amusing as your brand of purile ignorance IS, I'm going to delete any more trolling, off-topic comments that you post in THIS thread. (I really only have one rule, and you done broke it: http://eddiecabot.blogspot.com/2009/09/first-post-about-me-da-rulz.html) So if you insist on posting in THIS thread, either say something about BP, or SUCK my BP!

    BUT: If you want to continue your five-ring circus of ignorance, please feel free to post all of your worldly stupidity in: http://eddiecabot.blogspot.com/2010/06/how-not-to-argue-point.html; That's your very own thread, where highlighting your idiocy for all to see will NEVER be considered "off-topic."

    So knock yourself out, Floyd. (Or come on by and I'll oblige you.)

  6. Anon, I don't know where to start. Your silly rant and personal insults do not speak well for the politics you appear to be embracing. Obviously you dont like Obama and calling him Hussein is often a tell for a racist. Your gay mafia crack screams homophobe. You seem to embrace the idea of a civil war. Hmmmmm....tea party member? Oh let me guess...you are also a Christian and this is a Christian nation right? I also suggest you "knock yourself out" and give me, a bleeding heart liberal and card carrying memeber of the ACLU, a piece of your highly intelligent mind. Please please please.
