Exxon Effoff

  Republicans Full of Gas

     By now we all know that the United States consumes approx. 20% of the world’s oil while our domestic production capacity sits at 2%.  We could not drill enough oil here in America to supply our own addicted demand, much less influence world oil prices.  Yet Republican presidential hopefuls continue to blame President Obama for the spike in prices at the tank.  Newt Gingrich even goes so far as to say,  if he’s elected President, gas prices will be $2.50/gallon.  Remember when John McCain said he knew where Osama Bin Laden was?  All we had to do was elect him President and he would tell us.  Well we all know where Osama is now don’t we?

     Interesting interview yesterday.  Matt Lauer of the Today Show asked about the increase in gasoline prices.  Rex Tillerson, Chairman and CEO of Exxon (the world’s largest oil company) stated: “What drove these prices up is entirely the crude oil price.  Supply and demand is fine.  So what’s led to this most recent run-up?  Obviously concerns about the rhetoric over the closing of the Strait of Hormuz and the conflicts with Iran.”  What?  Did he just say that?  Yes, yes he did.  The 1%er confirmed that Wall  St. speculators are responsible for the drastic and sudden increases in gas prices.  Not President Obama.  So sorry Republicans, I guess it’s back to the drawing board!

p.s.  – Drill baby drill!

Do as I Say, Not as I Do

Eric Cantor Delays Key Legislation

Some people say Eric Cantor wants to hold onto the keys to the treasure chest just a little longer – if not indefinitely.  By not allowing a vote on the Stock Act, introduced by Democrats Louise Slaughter and Tim Walz, he is allowing the congress to continue their self-legalized insider trading.  This bill is an effort to deal with the obvious conflict of interest issue by increasing disclosure, in an effort to ensure legislators cannot benefit from inside information.   As it stands, congress members and their staff can legally benefit from non- public information learned while doing their jobs.  Cha-Ching!  This explains why many go to congress members of the 99%, and leave members of the 1.

We’re Number 1!

    Los Angeles does it Again!

No, I’m not talking basketball.  No, not hockey, soccer, football, baseball or any other sport.  I’m talking about something important.  Something that will affect your future as well as that of your children and grandchildren.

An organization called Move to Amend (.org) started a petition to amend the U.S. Constitution.  The goal is to establish the obvious: corporations are not people (Citizens United vs. Federal Election Commission; the Supreme Court decision that allows anonymous, unlimited  purchase [money=speech] of the U.S. political process, and therefore, the United States government).  L.A. City Councilman Eric Garcetti heard of the Occupy Wall Street-inspired petition, liked the idea, and drafted a resolution.    It states: only living persons, not corporations are endowed with constitutional rights and that money is not the same as free speech.

The Los Angles City Council voted on the resolution yesterday at 10:00 am.  As you may have guessed by now, it passed unanimously!  Los Angeles became the first major city in the United States to call for an end to all corporate constitutional person-hood.  Councilman Garcetti said: ” We’re very proud to come together and send a message, but more than that, this becomes the official position of the City of Los Angeles.  We will officially lobby for this. I also chair a group which oversees all the Democratic mayors and council members in the country and we’re going to share this with all our 3,000 members and we hope to see this start here in the west and sweep the nation until one day we do have a constitutional amendment which will return the power to the people.”

Bravo L.A.!  Once again the trend setter. Who would have thought we would ever need a resolution like this, to castrate the judicial activism of the shady majority on the Supreme Court?

Lazy, Shiftless …

Blacks Need to Get a Job!

Once again, African Americans prove to be the laziest demographic in the United States.  An obvious lack of resourcefulness, ambition, intellect, and drive has again placed the group at the top of the unemployment list:

African American -15.5%  Hispanic -11.4% National Average – 8.6%  European American -7.6%  Asian – 6.5%.

What is it with these people that make them so slothful, so willing to avoid work but instead look for government handouts?  I mean, the numbers don’t lie right?  There couldn’t be any other reason that Blacks in America are the “last ones hired and first ones fired”, right?

Next Step: Occupy Politics

The Occupy Wall Street movement, and all the other Occupy movements inspired by it, have had incredible  success in changing the political conversation both here in the United States and abroad.  Unfortunately, we Americans are a fickle bunch.  The movement may be losing it’s romance in the eyes of the general populous.  It is time for a change in tactics.  It is time to “Occupy Cyberspace”.

This is a call for all members and true believers in the  Occupy movement to come together in one location.  We need a definitive number  to represent the strength of the movement.  We need to form a unifying body to represent all of our voices, our desires to make the United States of America great again; to balance the playing field; to secure a promising future for our children and grandchildren:  the United Occupy Party!

Show your support!  Goto:  Change.org and sign the petition.  We can do this, one signature at time!   – United we stand, divided we crawl.

Sheep Let out of Cages

Black Friday Bonanza? –or-  Baa Baa Black Sheep have you any Cents?

         How many bagfuls of money did you save today?  How many bagfuls did you spend?  Think about it.  Were you one of the sheep who were chomping at the bit this morning, waiting for stores to open?  Were you one of the sheep who spent more than they could probably afford to, in the guise of saving less than you would have if you just stayed home?  How’s your economy going?

     Early reports today indicate that the corporations are doing just fine.  Sales at stores like WalMart are brisk, as multiple reported injuries and one reported pepper spray incident can attest. ( Apparently word of Occupy Day has not saturated the public consciousness).

     Come on sheeple.  You can do better than that.  I realize that to shop is to feel a certain euphoria that helps alleviate the pain of reality, but alas, this too is only temporary.  After the feeling goes away, you’re left with the material things you’ve purchased, which ( if made in China ) will also deteriorate soon enough.  When will you end the cycle?  When will you get off the treadmill that will inevitably, by design, leave you cold, shivering, and standing wool-less at the end of the road?

     Occupy your minds people.  Think for yourselves.  Be engaged in the politics that effect your everyday lives and your children’s future.  Wake up! and realize that in the checker game you are playing, you’re a pawn in the chess game they are playing.
