Black Oily Swan

May 29, 2010

A man-made disaster of epic proportions, I think we better start getting used to the idea that the leak currently hemorrhaging oil deep in the Gulf of Mexico may never be plugged.

I know it's a pelican

I expect that soon BP will throw up their hands and simply walk away. Taking a page from the Wit and Wisdom of Lloyd Blankfein, BP will announce “We did our best, this tragedy is now in the hands of God.” And of course the Gov will “take charge” of the disaster, and the money of course will come out of your pocket.

There will be no recourse for We the People. Just like Wall Street,  the Oilcos have engineered the law so that they will be untouchable.

Up to this point, BP has presented what in this age of centrally controlled media looks like a good faith effort. In fact it appears to cynics like me that every move they make is only to cover their ass. Corporate controlled media will make the case for their cronies offering the valuable assistance of helping form public opinion. Expect the slant from Faux Nooze(tm) et al along the lines of “If this is the Good Lord”s will, what you going to do?”

Obama will continue as an ineffectual figurehead who will make the right noises to keep the tongue clicking to a minimum. Meanwhile he will continue to reward Corporate America with the riches they so deserve. He might even get re-elected.


Meanwhile, Louisiana continues to get treated like a prison bitch.


Campaign to cut Soc Sec and Medicare Benefits Part Two

They’re gonna pull out all the stops and steam roll right over each and everyone of you.

Just thought you would like to know.


No soup for you

The MSM has successfully done .gov’s dirty work for lo these many years. Their valuable assistance? Framing the debate (aka “true lies”). Through their controlled channels, anything the kleptocrats don’t want to get through, doesn’t. Alternative voices with better solutions that would benefit taxpayers never even have a chance to get on camera.

Obamacare was framed for the benefit the insurance companies and big pharma. Invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan were framed to benefit military contractors and oilcos. TARP was to save capitalism (heh, well your 401k, but actually banker bonuses).

This past weekend’s ECB bailout (I dub it TARP Deux: We have a Bazooka II) is a reaction to keeping the entire worldwide economy from going tilt. Not exactly a positive purpose- borrowing money to pay off bad debts just can’t be good for anyone, ultimately. But the market doesn’t seem think so, for now.

Next up: entitlement programs.

The entitlement program debate is- haven’t you heard?– that Soc Sec and Medicare are going broke. Soon. So, good people of these United States, you’re going to have to cut back your expectations because obviously the ONLY solution is to cut these programs back. Or maybe eliminate them entirely.

Oh and by the way, .gov fully intends to confiscate your 401k and IRA too, in order to pay out what they can. It’s okay if you have to eat dog food (hey, aren’t you a patriot?), but why should retired .gov employees have to suffer like you, after having sacrificed a chance to make it rich in the private sector in order to toil in the public sector.

This video does a nice job of revealing how they operate, it is kind of an inside look at how kleptocrats and their cronies work in tandem to rob you.
