Gulf Dead Zone - NASA-NOAA





“The Supreme Court says that corporations have the same rights as individuals. When they misbehave, shouldn’t they face consequences as serious as those imposed upon an individual?

“It goes without saying that a person who commits a crime ought to face punishment proportional to the offense. Large and midsize corporations, which employ thousands of employees, have far vaster reach and power than even the wealthiest ordinary citizens. So their crimes can be breathtaking in scope. The 1984 industrial catastrophe at a pesticide plant in Bhopal, India killed 15,000 people. An additional 200,000 have since suffered serious injuries. Compared to the boards of directors of Union Carbide and Dow Chemical, which bought the company in 2001, Ted Bundy was small potatoes.”

Nationalize BP and Other Criminal Corporations by Ted Rall

This may well be the environmental crisis that tips the giant snowball off the cliff.  Why in the hell doesn’t Obama declare dog-pile on the rabbit?  Every available resource and every affected and concerned country should be invited to help plug the oil leaks in the Gulf.  BP either criminally wants as much of the oil as they can salvage, or they’re criminally incompetent.  Whatever the case, we can’t afford anymore of these sucking super corporations!

Not so dumb now, huh?
