23 years ago today, the Exxon\BP Valdez spilled more than 11 million gallons of crude oil off the coast of Alaska and today obama’s Shell Oil is preparing to do it again.
And to top it off Obama's Shell Oil somehow stumbled on to the idea of suing Environmental Organizations in the American Judicial System? Kind of like Hillary counseled TransCanada to do agains the People in order to build the Keystone Pipeline using eminent domain.
Obama’s Free Market.: Fidelity Investments advertising profit opportunities in Water being traded as global commodity.
Is profiteering from a dying planet wrong? How about when it is done by those that are killing it?
Because nothing says fair like putting a mugshot looking photo in "county orange" next to a 5 year old picture of the victim as a child.
But hey, two can play that game.
Hello THP community --
I listen to every minute of Thom's podcasts, am a long-time listener, and agree with most things Thom says. As a young(er) person still forming my ultimate positions, Thom has been a great teacher. However, a libertarian right-wing friend who I civilly debate turned me on to a free podcast by a right wing ex-radio person who now exclusively podcasts, named Dan Carlin (Google him, or "Hardcore History," for his podcast).
Last week on Tom's show I heard callers comparing the trajic shooting in Florida with a burning of a brave young man supposedly by two African Americans. I did some research and found the original news cast. I'm including the link to the real story.

Tragedy: Trees are Non-Renewable at +11F and burning them for electricity discharges their C02 immediately vs. over decades by decomposition.
But this doesn’t there won’t be dead trees available to fuel electrical generators because there will be. Many species of trees will die in the heat waves Obama’s inaction on Climate Change has brought us. These dead trees will invariably be finessed into the definition of “waste wood” by politically powerful utilities like Domtar\WE Energies in Rothschild, Wisconsin and elsewh
obama’s “my son” comment regarding Trayvon’s tragic slaying was a distasteful attempt at redirecting Public emotion to support his campaign.
Don’t politicize people’s deaths – don’t even get close to it. Their lives amounted to more than offering someone else, even the president, a tasteless opportunity to try to manipulate public sentiment.
A Capital Idea Part 113: A Model for Progress
I think I may be nearing the end of my capital ideas blog post series. I say I think I may be nearing its end, because new topics keep popping up. I want to endeavor in this post and the next few most likely, to discuss how to build a lasting social model for continuous progress in the economic and political realms.
Two obscenely wealthy brothers-playing with peoples lives for fun? HMMMMM? ANYBODY EVER SEE -"Trading Places"?
Peace my friends
