What a wonderful world we live in!
Arizona has decided that life begins before conception.
Peru has had about 3,000 dead dolphins wash up on its shore in the last year. Gas/oil exploration is going on out in the water, the likely cause, but is anyone covering this story? Haven’t seen it in either the mainstream or alternative press.
Some 14,000 Americans die every year for lack of health care. When 3,000 died on 9/11, we couldn’t spend enough money quickly enough to avenge them. They worked in the important industries and were white (mostly) so they count. The 14,000 we let die are poor. So fuck them.
Bradley Manning has been tortured by his own government, with the express permission of President Obama, who’s running around the country trying to convince us that he’s different than the rich white guys running the country. Since he’s prosecuted more whistle blowers than any other president, we can see that he is different. As in, worse.
And in an old piece of news, Dick Cheney finally got a heart. I used to be proud of being an organ donor. When I heard Dick picked one up in Florida, I immediately wondered if the donor was actually dead at the time, or if Dick just ripped it out of his chest. I’m re-thinking being an organ donor now. Apparently, there really aren’t any standards for who gets a new organ.
We just watched Gasland recently and Dick’s hands are even bloodier than I thought. It’s not just Iraqis old Dick likes to kill, it’s Americans too. He made sure that his oil and gas pals can drill all they want with no environmental oversight at all. The Clean Air, the Clean Water Acts do not apply to Dick’s buddies……he got them their own very special exemption. No wonder Halliburton has paid him off so handsomely. Now every living thing residing near a well can get sick and die with no recourse at all.
These people really shouldn’t complain because they’ve got a great party trick out of the deal. They can light their tap water on fire. Isn’t that cool?
