BP Spills Coffee

Our hearts are broken by the catastrophe in the Gulf and our rage is unbounded.  This nation is under assault by a vile and grossly incompetent cabal of corporations, BP, Halliburton and Transocean.

BP has a history of outrageous behavior.  It was formerly the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company. In cahoots with the CIA in 1953, it orchestrated the overthrow of the democratically elected Prime Minister of Iran, Mohammed Mossadeq, to protect its oil interests.  This set in motion a chain of events that bring us to the situation we find ourselves today in the Middle East.

Do not allow the corporate news media, in league with BP and their advertising dollars, to rebrand this event the “Gulf Oil Spill.”  It is the BP Oil Spill, or if you prefer, the BP/Halliburton/Transocean Oil Spill.

Please do not misinterpret the humor of this video produced by the Upright Citizens Brigade.  This parody does not dishonor the eleven men who died in the initial event.  Neither is it an insult to the thousands along the Gulf Coast whose lives may be permanently destroyed.  Even those gentle, bewildered pelicans are not further harmed by it.  It is intended solely to dishonor BP.  Period.  Can you believe, there is now speculation that this company will file for bankruptcy protection and skip town?  This could become the worst environmental disaster since the K-T boundary event.  If the oil reaches the Gulf Stream, is it possible to find it eventually washing up on the shores of Iceland, Cornwall or the Hebrides?

This was my last post at Windows Live Spaces.  I thought it fitting to make it one of my first ones here as a transition
