Is it you? Is it the average American just trying to eek their way through life?
AND YOU SHOULD DAMN WELL KNOW THAT BY NOW.
It’s not that private ownership is a bad thing; it’s when most of everything is owned by an entente of the few, and protected by governments, that makes private, corporate-led globalization of markets miasmatic to all other life forms and the US government, with her perfidious politicians, has lead in this defense of this Cartel, beginning sometime after President Lincoln’s assassination.
Unfortunately, those of us stuck deeply into the media’s carefully engineered left/right paradigm have no desire to be objective, and are thus blinded to all truth that does not reinforce biased opinions.
So, instead of using safe, non-toxic ways to gather up the rogue oil gushing from their incompetence, or their planned cataclysm, this private Cartel of oligarchs is using an extreamely toxic chemical dispersant (Corexit).
In a New York Times article by Paul Quinlan, BP is using a dispersant with the trade name of Corexit, even though alternative dispersants have been shown to be far less toxic, and in some cases nearly twice as effective.
And even though scientists have warned that Corexit could cause long-term harm to marine life, BP has ordered almost a million more gallons of the deadly dispersant from Nalso, a company with whom BP enjoys a cozy relationship.
Our own EPA data ranks Corexit as being 20 times more toxic, and far less effective in handling southern Louisiana crude than some other dispersants. (Probably ones made by companies that didn’t give Obama campaign money / you think?)
