Tea for Carly, Crumbs for YOU!

Remember, the original Tea Party hearties dressed up as Indians to cover their misdeeds. Indians at that time were treated worse than slaves. Some protest.

What disguise will Carly wear to cloak her dismal deeds as a CEO?

Wet T-Shirts and the Gulf Oil Geyser

"There's been a lot of finger pointing and a lot of confusion about how we came to face the greatest oil spill in US history. This video lays it out. This problem started in Washington and can end in Washington, but only if President Obama and other elected leaders get real about closing the revolving door between corporate lobbyists and our government.

"Lobbyists make up 2% of Washington DC, yet they've been able to run roughshod over our democracy, rigging the rules and fixing the system so that 98% of the country gets little or no say.

"If you think it's time to take our democracy back, we think this is a video you and your friends will want to see."

Fight corporate power

Not an environmental disaster? Doh!

"This is not an environmental disaster, and I will say that again and again."
- Congressman Don Young (R-Alaska ) speaking about the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.

Yet, here is just one of many views you aren't supposed to see.

Why not send Don Young a message in your very own words?

BP - Profit over Safety?

In an exclusive and shocking report, The Daily Beast published an internal BP memo calculating cost versus risk with regard to worker safety. Do you think this could have been their modus operandi with the Gulf oil spill?

Excerpts from BP's Shocking Memo, by Rick Outzen

The refinery explosion resulted in more than 3,000 lawsuits, including Coon’s, and out-of-court settlements totaling $1.6 billion. BP was also convicted of a felony violation of the Clean Air Act, fined $50 million and sentenced to three years probation. Last year, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration levied the largest monetary penalty in its history, $87 million, for "failing to correct safety problems identified after a 2005 explosion that killed 15 workers at its Texas City, Texas refinery."


We know that the Deepwater well lacked the remote-control, acoustical valve that experts believe would have shut off the well when the blowout protector failed. The acoustic trigger costs about $500,000. How would that stand up to a similar “Maximum Justifiable Spend” analysis (especially when BP’s liability is officially capped at $75 million by federal law)?
