WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama sought to reassure Americans on Monday that the Gulf Coast would "bounce back" from the worst oil spill in the nation's history, but not without time, effort and reimbursement from BP. Surrounded by Cabinet members, Obama said that not only is he confident that the crisis will pass but also that the affected area "comes back even stronger than ever."I don't even think that this needs to be commented. This is on the level of Tony "I want my life back" Haywood's now infamous quote of "This is not a major catastrophe, the ocean is pretty big".
Stronger! Than! Ever!
Well, if that isn't easier to swallow than a black man's cock at a gay club's gloryhole!
This is the guy we believed was the smartest guy in the room? This? This was supposed to be the Mr. Spock of US politics? This guy? This guy who has been "briefed on your pain"? Are you shitting me? This is the guy?
All you have proven in the first 1.5 years of your presidency is that a black politician in the White House is just as corrupt, just as adverse to the truth and just as deep with his head in the ass of multinational corporations as the next best white politician. And if the hell that isn't a good indication of being fully integrated, then I don't know what is.
In related news, 25 years after the Bhopal catastrophe (and if you don't know what that was, look it the fuck up)... India served up its first convictions. Let me point that out. 25 years! A quarter of a century! And the guy who was responsible for the deaths of at least 15,000 people back then, wait, was was thatagain? Criminal neglience by a major corporation? That allowed a catastrophe to happen? Killing people? Soiling their land? Oh, wait, that was in India! Who the fuck cares! We all know they bounced back, didn't they? Except for those 15,000 people. But hell, who's counting?
The guy responsible, in the end? The head of Union Carbide. A guy named Warren Anderson. An American. Who the Indians would really, really like to be extradited, so he can face criminal trial.
Guess who isn't giving him away?
That's right, class.
The US White House. This White House. And every other White House before it.
You are exactly like Dubya. Like Clinton. Like Papa Bush. Like Reagan!
Now, go and suck your corporate masters' dicks some more.
And so, to all those who think that any or all CEOs – who can and will destroy your life with the stroke of a pen – will ever held accountable by any or all governments, I'm sorry, kids.
Your life or livelihoods are worth shit-all.
But don't worry.
You'll bounce back. Stronger! Than! Ever!
