Two Years Later: The Oil is Still Here and So Are We - A Message from the Healthy Gulf Organization
April 11, 2012
Two years ago the BP drilling disaster began, killing 11 workers and threatening an ecosystem and the unique communities which rely upon it. Musicians, GRN supporters and community members are reminding you that BP's oil is still affecting the people and places of the Gulf. Despite this fact, neither BP nor DC have taken adequate steps to protect or restore this precious natural resource.

Who Wrote the Rules?
Looks like it's the Plutocracts who write the rules and the White House, Congress and the Supreme Court follow. I don't believe that this was the original intention of the Founding Fathers. So much for checks and balances. The checks come from Mega Corporations and the balance has been replaced by greed and corruption.
And the common people suffer as their tax dollars pay for their own demise.
