Our country is no longer controlled by, and for, We the People, but instead by, and on behalf of, international banking and multinational corporate interests. While the gradual, almost imperceptible takeover of our government by this corporate fascism has been evolving by design for many decades, it is a coup d'etat nonetheless and has been disastrous for the vast majority of Americans. This blog is an exploration and discussion of how this occurred, and the damage it has done to our democratic processes.

Gulf Coast is "Open for Business" (Just Don't Eat the Seafood)

Here's one of the insidious results of a government that's beholden to special interests (i.e. corporations) and not to the presupposed citizens who create and allow that government to exist. Just when you thought the news cycle was over for the cataclysmic BP disaster in the Gulf of Mexico (which, honestly, I never did), you find there's more hidden truth and misleading innuendo. Our president himself, toured the Gulf region on a short family outing last summer, proclaimed the seafood was safe to eat, and assumed all attention would divert to something else. Well, President Obama, I think it's time to look again. 

Link to: URGENT: The Video NOAA and The FDA Are Afraid You'll Watch. Lab Finds 193 ppm Oil in Gulf Shrimp, from OpEdNews.com, and tell me whether or not you'll pass on the jumbo shrimp at your next family gathering or office get-together. Be sure to watch the video of Nancy Mackenzie, as she's interviewed by the press recently about what she discovered. I'm not sure the corporate-owned mass-media ever mentioned this on the six or ten-o'clock news, but my guess is they didn't. I wonder why? (Not really.)
