Democracy & "deflated balls"
1-31-15 Frank from Albuquerque call to “Think Again” w/ L. Nathan Hare AM 1520
(1 of 3 hours a week Western New York gets to hear Progressive viewpoints on the radio)
“Wow Super Bowl weekend! Can u believe the last few weeks news was dominated by deflategate. When I first heard the term deflated balls, I thought they were talking about Corporate news ancHOrs. Honestly, can anyone blame Marshawn Lynch for hating the news media?
Anyways, I had to laugh at all our so-called Representatives in government making such a fuss about India's claim to being the first Democracy. ...because nothing says Democracy like India’s Caste System where ½ the population is born into involuntary servitude… and then it hit me, India’s Class System seems to be the model for Republican domestic and economic policies.
So I’ve teamed up w/ CA activist Mary Goode and NM’s Rev. Chris Ward (better known as Reverend Wrath on twitter) on a project we call:
How to destroy Republican political careers before 2016 election
This installment is in honor of India’s Republic Day celebrations. We ruin any political hopes and dreams for LA Governor Bobby Piyush Jindal.
He says Americans should be afraid those who are importing fanatical Islam but I’m more concerned with Jindal import of India’s Class system.
U talk about cheap gas prices? Yea, compared to taxpayers costs to clean-up oil company messes? HA!
Here’s a quote from CenLamar.com
“With the stroke of the pen, Governor Bobby Jindal likely saved the oil and gas industry billions of dollars in damages for which they otherwise would have been legally responsible, damages that are legitimately owed to hundreds, if not thousands, of hardworking families, businesses, and coastal communities who were devastated by and continue to suffer from the lingering effects of the worst environmental disasters in American history.
Gov Jindal’s pet legislation
SB 469 appears to have been written and deliberately designed by lawyers who represent the oil and gas industry in order to shield, reduce, or eliminate their clients’ exposure to civil damages on a wide range of pending and future claims, including, most notably, BP’s liability for billions of dollars in outstanding claims related to the 2010 Deepwater Horizon catastrophe. Indeed, according to people intimately involved in the legislative process, no one lobbied harder for the passage of SB 469 than those associated with BP.”
NOW … for all you Conservative rich guy groupies out there who say “what environmental damage?” If you have the courage, I’d like you to ask that question to ANYONE in the once thriving oyster industry around the Gulf of Mexico. Those are fighting words around the boat docks. Go to Tampa/StPeterburg and ask what happened to all the oysters-on-a-half shell bars along the shores. You’ll get the same far off blank looks and nervous giggles one would expect from Florida’s Conservative puzzle factory.
…and I didn’t even bring up all the pipeline leaks in Montana, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, West Virginia, Louisiana, etc…"
END of call.
NOTE: I’m sure after they poison the nation’s water supply the sick $ hoarding bastards will sell us the filters to clean it up
