As has been reported & evidenced on numerous videos,

BP is STILL violating the 1st amendment,

AGAIN with the help of treasonous government thugs.

In this particular case using Louisiana local outlaw police.


. . . Commander Thad Allen issued a written directive weeks ago ordering these media blockades to be lifted.

Smash cut to the Associated Press's senior managing editor Michael Oreskes, seeking redress from White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs to no avail.

McClelland also provides a video of an encounter between Drew Wheelan of the American Birding Association, getting

hassled by a local police officer for shooting a segment across the street from BP's facility in Houma, Louisiana. Wheelan was not on BP's property at the time, but still caught a share of Kafkaesque static:

Wheelan: "Am I violating any laws or anything like that?"

Officer: "Um...not particularly. BP doesn't want people filming."

Wheelan: "Well, I'm not on their property so BP doesn't have anything to say about what I do right now."

Officer: "Let me explain: BP doesn't want any filming. So all I can really do is strongly suggest that you not film anything right now. If that makes any sense."

Making even less sense is the fact that

Wheelan was subsequently

pulled over by the same police officer some time later, and then

tailed by "two unmarked security cars" for 20 miles!

As McClelland remarks, this "is a whole other level of alarming."

You live in an unconstitutional police state.
A fascist state run by corporations, where you are forced at the point of a government gun to pay taxes to subsidize the corporate welfare crooked, treasonous government officials give away to these same corporations.

Your government has been hijacked.

Hijacked by corporations.

Using their Al Qaeda lobbyist hijackers to steal your government away from your control & interests.

This may seem trivial at any given moment, but left unaddressed over the long run this is a paved freeway into the worst most nightmarish caverns of hell.

It doesn't require everyone to move mountains,
if just a significant number of you who have selfish AND patriotic interests will keep your elected representative phones ringing, & ringing, many of them will be forced to listen & start making outlaw government thugs obey the US constitution & instead of corporate mercenaries.

In a democracy if you can't get information & only get government, corporate & military lies & propaganda, you can't even know how to work in your own best interests.

America is all about you taking care of you, both in & out of your government(s).
Stand up. Tell the truth as you see it. Loudly Clearly.

Show everyone you are one of the American ownership society.
You own your government & You [& I] need to let the politicians & corporations know you do & you won't put up with anything less.

This is true freedom my friend-

BP is not the government... As I am told the government should stay out of it, lets
do it. If theory states you cannot tyrannize others with your influence, money and power
this is a good testing ground.

Maybe people will stop doing business with BP, so the market will punish them as the theory goes; which will surely happen as the book of Rand and the faithful proclaim everyday.

Let the market take care of it, I don't want to pay for it, the people of the region need to take responsibility for their state's policies, no more socialisms!!!

Incremental progress (or decay) is the way to go. This will be the testing ground to se the extent to which this can be done. If it remains as effective as it currently has been, it will establish a new paradigm by which mega corps will operate in the future.

Many of us here have dreaded the revival of the aristocracy as a visible power rather than something vacuous and seen only on pop television. I believe this is the first very public step along the way. I don't believe that they will necessarily use martial la, but if it does happen, I guarantee you, it will be under the guise of BP claiming that civilians have been hapering cleanup efforts and the government rushes in to "save the day".
