Hey kids! The Telepathic Crickets™ and I hope you enjoy today’s ClapSotOOn™ (NEW AND IMPROVED with 20% less trans fat!)
Here’s a suggestion for real hope, change and responsibility:
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
Well Cricketeers, YEE HAW, ain’t it grand that even though we got rid of g’dubya we still have a cowboy oil whore on the federal payroll? I’m of course referring to cowboy ken salazar, the former dairy queen franchisee who is now the statusQUObama appointed secretary of the interior! Aw shucks, if you’ve viewed today’s installment (above) of our new ClapSotOOn regular feature, you know all ya need to know about cowboy ken! But here’s a real pic of him in case ya think I’m exaggerating:
DAGNABIT! I think cowboy ken listens to both kinds of music, country AND western. YEE HAW! So what does cowboy ken’s boss man statusQUObama have to say about who’s at fault in bp’s spill, baby, spill? Here he is placing blame:
“The system failed, and it failed badly. And for that, there is enough responsibility to go around. And all parties should be willing to accept it,”
SONOFABUSH! Which begs the question: has statusQUObama and his administration accepted their fair share of the responsibility for this disaster? I don’t think so! After all, statusQUObama and his neolib klinton klan hillbillies have been in power for over a year now.
FAGETABOWDIT! There was PLENTY of warning that the minerals management service and other regulatory agencies were failing to do a credible job policing such industries as mining and oil drilling. There have too damn many disasters in which workers have been killed since statusQUObama took power. Those criminal dogs at bp and massey energy are just the tip of the iceberg. Remember, laBAMAnostra took over from laBUSHanostra just after the sec and other financial regulators FAILED to stop the banksters from crashing the world economy!
DOUBLE DAMNING FAGETABOWDIT! The crash of 2008 was the biggest failure caused by the bizarre and kinky neolib/neocon corpoRATe deregulation fetish so far! This disastrous bp spill baby spill, and the murderous massey energy are part and parcel of the failed anti-regulatory agenda in vogue in washingtOOn over the last three decades. This “let industry self-police” agenda foisted on the suckergencia™ as somehow freedom enhancing (get government out of the way of business) is a disaster the dirty dems and filthy repubs have inflicted on us since the early 1980’s! Face it, deregulation is the feckless appaRATchik dispensed poison that keeps KILLING US! Here’s a little something about the complete FAILURE that is the so called “minerals management service” from ap:
Federal inspections on rig not as claimed
By JUSTIN PRITCHARD, Associated Press Writer
LOS ANGELES – The federal agency responsible for ensuring that an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico was operating safely before it exploded last month fell well short of its own policy that inspections be done at least once per month, an Associated Press investigation shows.
Since January 2005, the federal Minerals Management Service conducted at least 16 fewer inspections aboard the Deepwater Horizon than it should have under the policy, a dramatic fall from the frequency of prior years, according to the agency’s records.
Under a revised statement given to the AP on Sunday, MMS officials said the last infraction aboard the rig, which blew up April 20, killing 11 and spewing millions of gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico, occurred in August 2003, not March 2007 as originally stated.
There ya have in in plain english, the regulatory agency FAILED to do the required inspections and then lied about it!
The Telepathic Crickets™ on the ClapSotronics editorial board and I have been warning YOU about the disastrous effects of deregulation and the kid glove treatment given to the corpoRATe criminals FOR YEARS! DO YOU GET IT YET? Are YOU ready to call for MAJOR increases in regulation of the criminal corpoRATeers and serious jail time for their criminal actions?
We continue to insist that the criminal statusQUObama admin:
- Cut pork barrel military spending by 50%! FUCK the military industrial complex!
- Replace the failed “down payment plan” with universal single payer health care!
Here’s my FAVE endorsement for single payer universal national health care, from the neolib who now refuses to give it to us:
Let’s see, in the video statusQUObama had a step by step process to get a single payer health care plan:
- dems take back white house CHECK √
- dems take back senate CHECK √
- dems take back house o’reps CHECK √
- PAY UP BITCH! Mauhahahahahahahah
The ongoing ClapSotronics serving suggestion:
EAT THE FUCKING pig corpoRATe rich!
laBAMAnostra and laBUSHanostra agree:
- That the disaster of a war should continue indefinitely. laBAMAnostra has the same exit strategy as laBUSHanostra did, no exit strategy what so ever! The corpoRATe pigs agree the current war should be escalated and additional wars should be started whenever possible!
- That the waste, fraud, and abuse pork barrel spending on ever larger pentagon budgets should continue and money “should be no object” when it comes to the funding of military death and destruction! paygo my ass!
- That the thieving corpoRATe insurance companies (the rotten aig being only the tip of the corpoRATe iceberg in the insurance larceny business) should be able to continue to pocket almost half of our health care dollars via the waste fraud and abuse filled current “free market health care system.” This ripoff comes in the form of over the top corpoRATe insurer “administrative costs” and corpoRATe drug pusher profiteering even as the rest of us are badly served by their wealth care, NOT REALLY HEALTH CARE SYSTEM!
- That the wal-fare system (click this link to see how I defined the wal-fare system in an earlier post) started by the klinton klan co-presidents slick willy and hillary dillary doo (she a former walmart board member and both former co-presidents are now made members of laBAMAnostra) and made ever worse by the waste, fraud, and abuse pork barrel funding of so called “faith based” organizations should be able to continue to poverty pimp we poor folks into ever deeper poverty! Punitive policies that force us into slave labor, low wage “jobs” and sermons are no replacement for the basic human needs based system we should have!
- That the inherently dishonorable corpoRATe criminals should be allowed to continue to “self police” as the idiots in washingtOOn chant the tired deregulation mantra!
It’s time to put an end to deregulation and the kid glove wrist slap treatment they get by regulating the corpoRATeers and RICO statute CRIMINAL PROSECUTIONS OF THE corpoRATe THIEVES!
The scientifically impossible I do right away
