In The News:
Thanks this morning to ChrisM, my MP3Angel, for supplying the commentary audio file.

The Clean Air Act, intended to ameliorate air pollution by forcing US energy generators and industrial companies to control their emissions output, came back into play yesterday in Congress after a ruling by the Supreme Court that the EPA DOES HAVE THE RIGHT TO CONTROL OF THE EMMISSIONS OF GREENHOUSE GASES (Therefore the EPA is planning to identify YOUR CAR as a 'hazard to human life'). The Republicans tried to block it's enactment in the Energy Bill and failed, but it doesn't kick in until 2016, by which time new regulations will be needed.

Arlington Cemetery's civilian administrator and his chief deputy have been fired due to mishandling of at least 200 soldier's remains including mis-identification and burial of 'knowns' in unmarked graves

There is ten times the amount of oil leaking from the Deepwater Horizon oil pipe into the Gulf of Mexico than initially thought (or perhaps they just bald-face lied).

Fouled Birds - Gulf of Mexico

Consider this fact from Open Secrets:
"About 40 percent of [Big Oil] donations went to Democrats. The top recipient of BP-related donations during the 2008 cycle was President Barack Obama himself, who collected $71,000....The oil and gas industry, of which BP is a member, reported $169 million in 2009 lobbying expenditures." [In Full]
...and this fact too: A SECOND BP oil rig is leaking into the Gulf... The Ocean Saratoga, and there may be more... The Ocean Saratoga rig was built in 1976 and has been one of the rigs with ongoing leakage problems since 2004 operated by Taylor Energy.

Speaking of disasters... General McChrystal now says the Kandahar Afghanistan campaign will take much longer than expected... He's said something similar before but who's REALLY listening?

Perhaps he's stalling for an Afghan take-over of their war that WE created for them so they can declare peace.

The world teeters on the brink of a new age of rage

By Simon Schama

Far be it for me to make a dicey situation dicier but you can't smell the sulphur in the air right now and not think we might be on the threshold of an age of rage. The Spanish unions have postponed a general strike (ed. 6/11: Not anymore!); the bloody barricades and the red shirts might have been in Bangkok not Berlin; and, for the moment, the British coalition leaders sit side by side on the front bench like honeymooners canoodling on the porch; but in Europe and America there is a distinct possibility of a long hot summer of social umbrage.

Historians will tell you there is often a time-lag between the onset of economic disaster and the accumulation of social fury.

In act one, the shock of a crisis initially triggers fearful disorientation; the rush for political saviours; instinctive responses of self-protection, but not the organised mobilisation of outrage. Whether in 1789 or now, an incoming regime riding the storm gets a fleeting moment to try to contain calamity. If it is seen to be straining every muscle to put things right it can, for a while, generate provisional legitimacy.

Act two is trickier... [In Full]
Meanwhile, in America, scapegoating immigrants due to economic policies like NAFTA that destabilize the surrounding nations causing mass migrations for physical and economic survival is ALL the vogue, along with the MURDER of countless civilians across the globe.

To wit, General Stanley McChrystal's observation, gone un-noticed and uncommented by the average American:
"We've Shot 'An Amazing Number Of People' Who Were Not Threats", and the American public's reaction to Arizona's unconstitutional state immigration law:
The American public’s reactions to the Arizona law has been one of “broad approval,” as revealed in a recent survey from the Pew Research Center. A quick review below provides some basic details:

         * 59 percent generally support the Arizona law.

         * 73 percent approve of the provision “requiring people to produce documents verifying legal status.”

         * 67 percent support “allow[ing] police to detain anyone unable to verify their legal status.”

         * 62 percent support “allowing police to question anyone they think may be in the country illegally.” [In Full]

Finally, The Opinuary Column, from Jesus' General
(An 11 on the manly scale of absolute gender... The general IS NOT a homosexual!)
The Opinion "A Corporation deserves the same rights as a human being"
has died
a tumor has more claimants

it leaves no known survivors
in its terrible wake.
it could not love
nor feel empathy,
it turned on its side
one last time
it waited

all that is left
is someone in billing
and someone in security
and the cleaning crew,
but they will stop coming around
when the checks start to bounce

the opinion was born as a theft,
the product of one cipher well-placed
positioned to destroy the world
once employed never to be relinquished
once empowered never questioned
once unleashed never to be captured
a multi-limbed shadow darting in the margins
strangling the light

raised by he-wolves of legerdemain,
by warcraft and guile
and assembly and currency derailment
and product and death
it grew fat and sassy and proud and worried:
there was always another corporation in the way
one fatter, sassier
one that must be bought-out or dragged down
or taken from behind
rutting and strutting and stamping its feet
the great corporate person
a child of the titans
a force without rival
the great american god

the Opinion died, and was replaced
before it hit the sidewalk
before the dull thud and hopeless gasp

in lieu of flowers, the family of the deceased
ask that you begin to sway in a velvet curve of motion
and hum and sing, like machines being
born in a cave,
let your life recede from view
your loves, your dreams of a natural world
as you thrum the corporate song of life
the great edict in a bloodless memo
please, dance to a carefully selected tune
chosen just for you

dance within the lines already drawn
the tension is noted
the authorities are on alert
the corporate person cannot dream
it spies you in the dark
and clutches envy to its heaving, hollow chest


The Opinuary Column appears most Fridays at Jesus' General.
