Forum Post: Let's Wreck the Water!!

Real capitalists don't need no fresh water.

Now when they can ship oil in and around it.

"Two oil projects in the works could significantly increase the amount of heavy crude oil moving on -- and near -- the Great Lakes, causing alarm among environmentalists because they involve the same heavy oil that was behind a $1-billion oil spill on the Kalamazoo River in 2010 that remains an ecological disaster.

The company fined for that spill -- Canadian oil transport giant Enbridge -- is behind one of the new projects. Its new venture would nearly double the amount of crude oil shipped on a major pipeline from Canada to Lake Superior -- transporting more oil than the controversial Keystone XL pipeline that has caused an environmental outcry and fierce debate in Congress. The second project involves a refinery on Lake Superior's shore building a dock to load oil barges, allowing the shipment of up to 13 million barrels of crude oil per year throughout the Great Lakes to Midwest refineries and markets beyond."

They don't care.

They make us pay for the cleanup, one way or another.

After they foul the Great Lakes, they have investments in water bottling corporations to gain them even more profit.

You can't trust drinking the water they've been leaking oil into you know.

It is self destructive, and more of the profit over people mentality that corp 1% oligarchs are engaging in that motivates occupiers everywhere.

These guys should be working on this.

Depressing. I know Exxon was very effective at keeping news away but activists snuck through and posted pics.

Here's their video:

I especially like the paper towels used to soak it up. Pathetic.

Stewart/Colbert had a field day with that.

I said a long time ago, that that is the purpose behind all the pressure being put on Michigan, Wisconsin and even Ohio.

To get the States to give up the Lakes.

They're busy watching the puppets, and pretending libe(R)tarians have nothing to do with anything at all.

Because you openly campaign for those who accept that very money from the most corrupted companies on the planet?

That might have something to do with it. Ya know, being a fraud and all.

Destroy the food, the water, the air. everything....

Why not.

All in a days work for the duopoly.

[-] 2 points by shoozTroll (17632) 7 years ago

Yes of course, sure.

Whatever is easiest for you.

No point in thinking too much.

You get what you vote for. Not very difficult to comprehend.

Go to the store and buy a loaf of bread and you may find in that paper bag when you get home......wait for it..... a loaf of bread? "How the hell did THAT happen?"

haha

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 7 years ago

Sure, right whatever is easiest for you.

No problem. It could only be whatever.

No point in actually thinking.

HOhohohO

"Let's Wreck the Water!!"

Follow the money.

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 7 years ago

I did.

You don't care.

You should go back to doing what you do best and chase liberals away from the forum.

[-] 1 points by OTP (-203) from Tampa, FL 7 years ago

Of course I care. I believe that PepsiCo and Coke are the largest manufacturer of bottled water. Where does their money go?

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 7 years ago

Go back to chasing liberals off the forum.

You really don't care.

That's why you can't hold focus on a subject.

So like I said.

Whatever is easiest for you.

As thought free as possible.

[-] 2 points by OTP (-203) from Tampa, FL 7 years ago

Hey dude, you were the one that stated they could be chasing people into the plastic water option, and I thought that was a good call.

The next logical step is who runs those companies, and what have they done recently, politically. What do they have to lose/gain.

Im speaking on what you brought up. What more do you want from comments?

[-] 0 points by shoozTroll (17632) 7 years ago

Whatever you say.

There's no point in you starting the thought process at this late stage.

You only use it as a divisive device anyway.

Go back to chasing folks off the forum.

It's your forte.

Wow. Great convo. Later dude.

For anyone else, here ya go:

Let's not forget Canada.

They want to help poison the lakes too.
