Jesus Mugabe, Special Macropocalypse Edition
So, remember last week, when it was curiously noted that oil industry execs weren't being sworn in for their statements? Presumably, so they could avoid perjury charges?
Well, now we know why!
"...A White House document shows that executives from big oil companies met with Vice President Cheney's energy task force in 2001 -- something long suspected by environmentalists but denied as recently as last week by industry officials testifying before Congress."
Let me skip the rhetorical questions (How is it possible for these drooling idiots to be such transparent tinpot dictators? Is this not just a little too much like a Satanic episode of Yes Minister meets Nascar?) and get straight to the point.
Like, what else could it possibly take to clue you in that Dubya, Dick, and Condi want to help their agenda and their buddies at your expense?
You've seen: a vicious terrorist attack (horrible), a war on the wrong country (amazing), the devastation of an American city (unbelievable), systemic corruption at the top (disgusting), the total mismanagement of the country's money, rendering the US a future pauper (almost inconceivable) and now, almost every day, more and more evidence of the kind of cronyism this country hasn't seen since 1929 (stupendous; congratulations should surely be in order).
Oh, wait, I figured it out.
The rest of us may want to note that cronyism like this kills economies dead.
