Is It Time To Use The “N” Word?
Excuse me for a moment while I push yet another large and (for some reason) invisible elephant into the middle of the room for all to finally be able to talk about. No, what I said was who has “Peanuts Breath?”, not “Penis Breath”.
And of course the “N” word in the post subject is from Nationalize. Even for many life long republicans, it’s become obvious that Somalia does not hold the exclusive patent on piracy, it takes place in other parts of the world as well. Some have said that it’s time to seize control of the oil industry away from the few (speculators please see this, and this too) who pocket the profits and ignore the grief they cause for the many by ramping up their export of petroleum products to Asia and Europe to create a jump in their prices / profits here.
Strangely, it seems it isn’t just about the money this time, they are also doing to this to foist a regime change upon us, abetting in the failure of any chance that the American economic recovery will happen at the same time that a (more or less) black guy is in the White House. My Ford Giveth, and my Ford taketh away
It should be clear to everyone that the oil oligarchs would happily allow the industry to be taken over and run by people who have America as their first priority, but only if the alternative was announced to be a targeted shooting of one or two of them a day, either picked out at random or popped sequentially determined by the price of their suits or the amount of their weight that’s over the A.M.A. suggested guideline for “Normal”. There would be some rapid changes in their priorities (diets and wardrobes) shortly after the first few of these “career adjustments” took place, and someone with the right kind of foresight could make a fortune by locking up the rights to a “Pay-Per-View” live action show. Hell yes, I’d pay cash money to watch these weasels spend a large part of each day trying to become even more invisible than they’ve managed to be in the past, they’d shame the witness relocation program in no time.
One easy to do thing that could boost the ratings for this new show would be to run advertisments for it in advance of the premiere that would feature the feeding of lobbyists to the sharks. True, it’s only a symbolic gesture, but it is certainly a nice start. With the tens of thousands of lobbyists lurking out there, this preview could be spun off into a show on its own, imagine the laughs watching them rat out their competition, it could morph into a series that I’d call “Betrayal Island”, a program that would actually be worth following each week.
If you understand that “You snooze, you lose” has context here, this may be our last possible chance to wrest what’s left of America from the grips of these “greed is good” bastards. And just to clarify, I’m not in any way advocating the shooting of any oil company exec or making chum out of lobbyists, no matter how much they deserve it, because that would be illegal and legally actionable. Using an update of the Richard Nixon defense procedure, I publicly say “That would be wrong!”.
Not saying it would necessarily be a bad thing, just wrong….
