Just watched the Public Message, from BP to the world. The kinda apologetic, promising to finally do what is actually RIGHT.
Looking at his body language, all through, he shows several signs that can be read as....well, INSINCERE.
1. Did not look camera/or interviewer right "in the eye" A CLASSIC
2. Did not look entirely COMFY, as in on the "hot" seat CLASSIC
Call in Robert Reich, Eliot Spitzer and Ralph Nader, ask them to choose the government position they'd prefer, can those presently occupying those positions and immediately appoint all three of these men to fill those posts giving them as much power as possible with unfettered, direct access to the president.
It is interesting that addictions are eventually fatal and that an addict has few limits when it comes to feeding that addiction. We have people in "high Places" who are addicted to power and greed and unfortunately, they are taking others with them on their road to destruction. It is so sad but I see our addiction to oil leading to the disaster in the Gulf Coast and the damage and cruelty and loss of life and livlihood are the dues for that addiction.
In case you are looking for a [edited by administrator], as it is one of the top selling cars within the US, you should keep some things in mind. A new Atlanta Honda Civic has style and every single day drive ability while a used Atlanta Honda Civic could be a great deal. Make certain you research what type of Atlanta Honda Civic you would like, make a wise purchase, and line up auto loan application.

I've never blogged before, EEeek! I came across a very upsetting piece written Monday by Chris Hedges titled "The Greeks Get It" published on Truthdig.com. It paints a REALLY bleak picture of the future. I hope you get a chance to read it and then talk about it on your show sometime soon. Below is the article ~ warning, not for the faint of heart!
On Monday's show, Thom asked if the Gulf oil disaster is Obama's Katrina. I say yes because even as the oil washes ashore, Obama is pushing for more offshore drilling, along with John Kerry, John McCain, and many mainstream "eco" groups.
I propose that we stop using rhetoric like "spill" and "leak" because those terms have the effect of minimizing. How about "The BP Toxic Petroleum Eruption" and note that it is caused by human greed?
Why does this incident in the gulf not justify seizure of all corporations assetts to send a clear message?
Tom, Mike Papantonio was on Chris Matthews yesterday and he mentioned that BP could, if they wanted to, send out their tankers to vaccuum up the oil to keep it off the beaches and marshlands. But that they weren't doing that because the tankers were already full of oil somewhere and they were waiting until the price went up to empty them! If this is the case, I wish someone could force them to empty those tankers and take their losses, and get those tankers down to the Gulf Coast!
Just wanted to let you know, the boycott BP facebook page is growing by 1000 fans an hour.
