A well-dressed man spotted an attractive prospect and after chatting, charming, shelling out for drinks, leaned in and whispered: “Will you have sex with me for $100,000?”
Prospect, with broadening grin, cozied up and replied: “yes”
Well-dressed leaned back: “Will you have sex with me for $50?”
Prospect stunned: “What do you take me for?
“We’ve already established that, now we’re haggling over price.”
Election Eve 2004- 38,000 contracts sat on our Oval Office desk –oil -gas -coal -precious metals –minerals –America’s resources, rights –signed away, ready to be dealt. Who signed away OUR nation’s resources? Who got— Who used government for personal gain?
Prostitutes? Who –helped the ‘well-dressed’ get off deep, deep into the nether regions –no prophylactic, cap in case of ‘leakage’… Who –swore, promised to protect –dropped veils on watchdogs, rules, regs… Who –danced pippers’ tunes… Who took the money?
Thuggery pays well knows the frat boy who bummed long after his C-student days. He bought baseball team on investors’ money, cashed in just before it went bankrupt, left investors with memories, worthless shares. He got ‘black gold’ bug and $70 million ‘loan’ to drill for oil in his Lone Star state from daddy’s pals at House of Saud, though they already have more oil than sand and he forgot to repay –or to drill. No matter, they still hold hands.
Instead, he drilled for votes to be the ‘man’ –so-so morphed into ‘macho’ governor-man: had more people executed than anyone in US history. He stepped on that to step up with rusty, trusty pick
The Dick… war-lover, excused from Vietnam War on all five of his requests, from the Equal Rights state; willing to send anyone to war, equally. The Thug and The Dick got into the White House not by majority of voters, not by law, but by the no-longer supremes –pay-back to Republican benefactors. The Dick ‘eased in’ with $34 millions his benefactor’s way.*
All 180 at The Dick’s first meeting –benefactor, drillers, suppliers sealed in secret records –got Equal Rights from president of vice –in or out of Nation’s federally protected parks –mountain tops, wild land, off-shore, private tracts, coasts -anywhere. Plus in country after Bait & Switch on Congress to invade Iraq.
Ecologists protecting environment –water –air –endangered species –The Dick not so big, he couldn’t come, not even once, always late, late -late for a very important date –elsewhere, all eight years.
Gulf rig…Surprise, Surprise… There had been warnings… but the oily boys paid no attention, only fines –for the corroded pipes –the leaks the fires, the injuries all over the earth. ~But They did not Listen…~They’re not Listening now…. This time: The Universe made Sure, grabbed them where they ‘live’ –fish –fowl –life smothered. ~Perhaps they’ll listen …now…. Like “Lost’s” Smoke, Oil Monster kills….
WOW… wow… without oil monster
WHO Knew: oily boys lied to the feds, while they doled out the dough.
WHO Knew: oily boys Don’t have Plan B -C -ANY equipment -idea HOW to Stop it… Remove it.
Who knew… sand castles… pelicans… whales, dolphins, turtles –oysters, shrimp –boats, cafes, habitats –fishing, fun, future –way of life –all gone the way of wetlands: slow strangulation.
Who knew: Republican core value —environment –now party for corp’s that pollute???
Want to Know WHO —ordered NO Face mask??? —bad photo op??? —’People Keep Out’ —Big Profiteers bought US beaches AND Law enforcement??? —DON’T Own Everyone -Rights -A thing on Public’s Property. WHY Profiteers allowed to call Any shots? —Learned Nothing from Ground Zero??? Where the hell is OSHA?
Americans Know??? 1995 to 2006 —Republican control: House of Representatives -Tom Delay gave baby daddy donors tax breaks —drill America, baby –Multi-billons to Big Pharma, and $35 Billion to oily boys every year. Baby, If oily boys need OUR naturals to make money: Why do we Give THEM enormous breaks for drilling us, baby? —take our oil??? Shouldn’t they Pay us??? What could we do -cover -start -pay back with $35 billion Every year?
Eleven humans: murdered. Oil: rocketing out of ocean floor –no thumb large enough to put on those scales…. Sex -lies -greed, stupidity: exposed, No place to hide.
Oily boys’ deep pockets grease their ‘marks’ –Everyone except ‘non-connected’ us, Americans, Knew what was going on and on, spread the wealth to Oval Office… Congress’ pockets, un-tie rules, take Nation’s resource. —But without any recourse, exempt –Clean Water –Clean Air –Murder???
Without Oil Monster How else would we know: Republicans –president of vice installed “regulators” who ‘regulated’ with sex –lies –drugs and pencils. Pencils??? –The better to trace in ink –deceit of How to Fix what Probably Won’t Go Wrong? Good to know: Nobody Thought –Stopped –Refused the Money.
spreads…toxins -treachery -tidbits –tokenism –tyranny, reveals two-fisted takers, two-faced tarantulas in sickening slime.
The Dick –Deal?
Black shroud uncovered. ‘Equal Rights’ native drilled down way off shore, invasion of vast oil reserves with handy gulf for transport –bloody financial catastrophe. Now: Ecological economic Gulf disaster –he stands for protecting this Gulf? Now regret –remorse? Now: silent. Ex president of vice– sent his PR hack —to protect rig owners –mega-millions mouthing Toyota-type ‘sorry-ish’ ads, Clueless, Indifferent How to –remove millions of gallons. Ads.
If The Dick, Big Profiteers had ocean of Doing Right: PR ‘cure’ would cost $50 million? Or cooks shuckers, shrimpers, suppliers, innkeepers –Everyone their FREE PR division.
Uh, one question: Why Big Profiteers running TV ads –in California?
The “Deficits don’t matter” Dick thrilling –TV station managers, not so much owners with home mortgage deficit, getting the shaft without the thrill. ~The thrill is gone… daVine Remedy for Sounds of Silence: under arrest –stand trial for dereliction, baby.
…we get hi-def picture— Who looking out to protect –the living; Who protects profiteers, position, personas. No special equipment needed to see: Who has the Right Stuff, who makes you sorry -wasted the vote.
Republican Mrs. Palin –Stands for –the Right?
Drunk captain crashed –Exxon’s oily super-tanker –millions of gallons dumped on Alaskan pristine shore –wildlife, way of life killed. People picked picked picked oil —sick.
Mrs. Palin –drilled spot on Alaska Asset Management board, over $100,000 a year –did what to help –workers? Quit before term ended, baby it was “boring” she was bored, baby.
She drilled for votes moved to Mayor Palin; drilled for votes moved to Governor Palin. –Power, push, pull for ex Exxon Alaskans, baby? She quit before term ended, it was “boring,” she was bored, baby.
Twenty years later: Jury award –slashed by oily judges –to prop up their portfolios?
Over 5,000 ill pickers cut adrift -medical bills un-paid. Fish -fowl -over 800 working class not working: dead, unreimbursed.
Exxon— got another boat, still pumping Congress, lobbyists, shareholders, not reimbursed a baby, Oily debt still unpaid, baby. Drunk: got a ‘pass’ and a pension, baby. Mrs. Palin? Alaska still oily, baby….
Ignorance is not bliss: Unfiltered -no ‘nosey’ newspapers, straight from moose’s mouth— She didn’t stand for working people, wildlife, way of life –Sits still for oily boys —no rules, clean up, court awards for her, baby. Completed? Accomplished? Moans, groans Incomplete sentences -Others’ who work. Sarah Palin: stands for the speaking fees, baby, tax breaks and all, not for the ‘small.’
Alaska —Part of US?
—oily boys drill America’s resources– profits– off Public’s assets –doles out dole to Alaskans???
daVine Remedy- Oily strong-box —Everyone –share Nation’s resource -profit: 50% to Americans + an Energy savings account, 25% to feds, 25% to oily boys, Who’s your daddy now? A VERY Good Thing.
The Good Politics?
One Party: ‘party on’ -aids corporate money-making freely, no ‘annoying’ regulation. ‘Your fault you lost your house, bankers rule —why we gave them billions of taxpayers’ money.’ Workers -be grateful for the Minimum Wage, tough if women make less, bosses need to pull down 8,000% more. Laid-off just ‘take any job’— no booze for you, “get drug-tested.”
—No ‘welfare for the lazy.’ …uh, they paid unemployment insurance… but $56 Billion handed to Big Ag to grow excess corn past ten years; Texas doctors’ $15k in “ranch”-house eight-year loop-hole; $35 Billion UN-paid on Oily Boys’ taxes —Not welfare??
One Party: putting rules back on the road we all have to travel. —Corporations not “special” —don’t get to ignore law —party with paid-off regulators.
You —for corporate welfare —for fairness, choose which one?
Conservationists –morphed to“conservatives” -now: conformists —for big profiteers —for Money —for crushing people who work. Colo. town, Oakland: broke and “no taxes” = no street lights -no police -no services. Will Conformists stop using streets, roads, airports —not call Fire fighters? —But ‘okay’ gut economy –hand our money to fat bankers -Wall Street wallowers?
‘Speaker’ Sarah… apologist bankrupt Barton…The Dick… dead-eye on the prize. Now that we know– prostitutes sold their soul –purchased to ‘cheer lead’ for the ‘special,’ how about we call a spade –a dirty monster, shills whores for selling out —cashing in every -one for cash.
–Oil Monster Stinking lousy Big Profiteers: trapped all, not just the “small.” Cannot Look –drenched wildlife –not realize: exciting times. Big Oil: done us –all, Big Opportunity
How do we get more?
Go create a creature, make an animal –from a petroleum wall. The Universe not going to relent: we cannot tolerate another event, NO MORE argument. WE change our ways, give Nature Respect.
Exposed…wetlands –buffer to protect ALL, so if Strangulation is crime: what is Punishment? When is Execution?
—Haven’t got you, babe?
Sun-screen? Moisturize? Creams, cosmetics: ‘finest’ –bargain brands? If it’s ‘creamy’ baby, Larded with: propyl glycols –petroleum –through skin lands in liver, baby. No eye-cream for you? No worries: FDA says it’s OK –it’s in your drugs, baby swallow away. Oops –Moisturizer Turns skin to putty.
hmm…petroleum in medicine -Chapstick -tooth paste -hand cream -hair gel -lipstick -thousands of personal care products every day, all day FDA knows ‘okay’ —How?
Monster spreading through the Gulf –mad, sad –Angry –or not, oil Not Your Fault? Dislike smoking, don’t mind it’s banned —by banners with no legal standing -don’t Own the air, not a peep outta you?
So the 271 Million toxic carbon pounds –dumped on parks, playgrounds -crops, water –songbirds, honeybees –all creatures great & small, once-flourishing and endangered all —glaciers, oceans, estuaries —on you from 70,000 commercial flights a day, not counting helicopters -private planes —You have What to say? Ya, let’s have more walks -runs for the ‘cure.’
‘cheap’ handy plastic bag : at $20 to you —would land in landfill -street drain -ocean? Los Angeles had to use $5 MILLION pick up trash NOT in the can, last year.
—Not you, babe, your mutual funds invested in —don’t know? Call: fund manager Ask, Demand Not in oil —not any related in any way.
The shark swims to eat, eats to swim The corporation that ‘lives’ to pump –no different from any other, except for incompetence –indifference to consequences, life. They don’t care about past –’watchdogs’ -engineers -experts -labor, all merely ‘tools,’ means to juicy profitable end. Good to know….
…dead dolphins…but How Far does the Thought —the Rage —the Outrage go?
Back to the store, that one item…? —Your car, not enough miles against each gallon? —Letter to oil advocate/your Congress member —You meant to, but unwritten? Drill, baby —just a poly-tics thang, just keep on keep’n on Even if it destroys….
Cannot afford electric car –happy to have job, car —battle traffic –You: back & forth to work —solo??
Amount of oil exploded out of the pipe one day: amount we, Americans, used up on the road in One HOUR.
–frantic at $4 gas… didn’t/don’t want to pay penny -twenty -eighty cents more at the pump —so fed bean-counters could put away some beans for a rainy day, A Better way. 1980s England: Brits paid $8 a gallon (equivalent), I was there.** Now: Even more, all over Europe. You care –the humans, the creatures, the planet –but, you’re here –that’s ‘over there’ –you “can’t” spare more? Talk: a bargain, but Bus –bicycle –feet?
Greenish Ready Remedy If it was oxygen: what would you pay? We, Americans, Have to join world community: pay at the pump or pay with the planet. Get Ready: $8 -$10 -$14 each gallon of gas –till we decide, organize Real alternative. You —Letter demand: to House and Senate?
…tarred turtles… should rocket the angry straight ~To those science books… math –biology –technology –engineering –Find a Better Way to power our world –without murdering creatures –Right Now today.
Oil consuming Gulf Life. People in Louisiana: What did they expect? Voted in corporations’ Republicans = Gulf full of oilrigs.
Job –house –pension gone. You -family –friends: What did you expect?
Shop at ‘bargain’ big-box store, eat at ‘bargain’ national chain/MacDonald’s –products shipped mega-distance –on oil; pension at mega-bank. —Mega-corporations take your money: buy favorable laws -politicians –to un-regulate.
Jobs: shipped off-shore on price. Cram down wages -prices, slice/dice housing -banking -oilrig laws galore = mega-profit –Nation’s economy: Wrecked. Those ‘bargains’ —paid for with Americans’ job —labor at $.71 a Day over there.
But –Question skills, history, life experience —homework or just vote ‘most ads’ candidate? You “need” to wait for Congress not —Stop the vicious circle: don’t feed mega-corporations who buy politicians who take the money.
Mega-corporations Did not steal your creativity –energy –passion –anger, Speak up. Buddy up with others as fired up as you –make Your Own Way:
–mega-corporate money OUT of elections: Demand Public funding
Oil Monster —Gift If not now —when will we look -plan The Future? We need: Plan B, C, D to stop dying forests, disappearing species, caving icebergs —rid planet of carbon.
Are we as good as our ancestors, wise as Benjamin Franklin? We killed, we are killing…. Adopt the NRA way— ‘oil doesn’t kill, people do’? Or Really Dump Watt & co —oil passé —go Scouts way: leave forests and the rest the way we found it….
How long can we keep on pumping, polluting —still have Earth to call home… daVine…. We are intelligent, motivated —whole world demands: Change. The Universe will not relent –oil flow won’t stop –killing till we find a Better Way.
daVine Remedy Stop —Find, Go another way…. May it be soon, who WILL speak for the creatures….
daVine Remedy— Just say “HELL NO”
