Well Cricketeers, the crimes of bee pee just keep getting worse! The reports of poor treatment of cleanup workers in the gulf are flying all over!
This from yahoo! news:
Oil cleanup workers protest ‘flotel’ housing
By Brett Michael Dykes
…Many workers have been housed in floating hotel/motels — structures similar to trailers or shipping containers stacked on top of each other on a barge.
BP told a New Orleans Fox affiliate that the flotels were useful for keeping workers close to cleanup sites, thereby eliminating travel time.
But some aren’t happy about it. In fact, a group of fishermen decided to go on strike in protest of their accommodations, and some workers have expressed concerns about safety.
“We’re on strike, so we’re not going to work,” Jules Dag told WDSU, an NBC affiliate in New Orleans. “I’m not living on no quarterboat,” Dag said. “When I signed up, the agreement was we lived at a motel or somewhere they supplied us to live.”
Dag said that some workers have no choice but to accept lodging at a flotel because they’ve yet to be paid and have depleted whatever savings they had as a result.
“We ain’t been paid yet,” Dag said. “We’ve used almost everything we got to live out here already. Forty days, we ain’t seen nothing yet. What we supposed to do for money?”
SONOFABUSH! So the bee pee dogs hire people then treat em like shit? What a surprise huh?
DAGNABIT! It’s the same as it ever was. The useless corpoRATeers sail by the cleanup site in their yachts while the workers are packed into shipping containers! It makes me sick!
FAGETABOWDIT! bee pee don’t even have enough sense to pay these people.Many have been working for WEEKS AND STILL HAVEN’T SEEN A SINGLE PAY CHECK! I bet the bee pee executhieves get payed right on time, if not in advance!
The Telepathic Crickets™ on the ClapSotronics editorial board and I are tired of those fucks at bee pee getting away with this shit!
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
