WTF Dept. Part III

We Are All Connected

In the fall of 2007 I wrote a poem titled Reflections. In it I make the claim: we are all connected - I do not pretend that this is some radically new idea. What I do insist is that this evenings news is a fine demonstration of that ethereal principle of connectivity.

.

  1. Pensacola FLA: 24 inches of rain in 24 hours

    • this once in a 500 year event is hard on the heels of the all time record which occurred within the past few decades
    • and this wasn't a hurricane
  2. Harsh winter slows economic growth

    • The American economy barely grew in the first quarter as the harsh winter weather appears to have knocked business investment and other activity even harder than previously thought.
  3. The White House proposes throwing the U.S. interstate system to the Koch Whores

    • A transportation proposal sent to Congress by the Obama administration on Tuesday would remove a prohibition on tolls for existing Interstate highways, clearing the way for states to raise revenue on roads that drivers currently use at no cost. Congress banned tolls on Interstates in 1956 when it created the national highway system under President Dwight D. Eisenhower.
  4. Another Oil Train Explodes

    • This is the second oil-train accident this year for CSX.
    • IF this is how we will lobby for the KeyStone XL pipeline, then the lobbyists responsible must be lined up and shot.

.

The ethereal relationship illustrated above may not be readily obvious until it is pointed out - themes of weather, economy and transportation predominate. But beneath all that lie the aspirations of traitorous libertarian bastards so intent on the furtherance of their own ambitions they will sacrifice not only the very best that this nation has to offer, but all of civilization itself - and even this will prove to be insufficient to assuage their inflamed and swollen egos . . .

Don't forget the Koch's actively bribing judges, so that they deal with public pensions the way the Koch's want them to.

Quite surreal, in the face of the news above.

FLAKESnews, remember NEVER dis FLAKESnews, because........MSM.

CNN is probably a comedy of errors, but it's nowhere near as deliberate as FLAKESnews.

When that was in place, things like this would have been left buried in a cave someplace.

In all the news about all these storms over the last several years, how many times have you heard the same quote?

'I've never seen anything like it in all my life!'

I heard it just today about the tornado's across the south and about the flood in Florida.

Is there ANY potable ground water left in Virginia?

Oh, and speaking on pipelines, it's apparently a great time to cut staff for a little defacto deregulation!!

Guess who they'll try and blame for the next major leak?

Poor innocent oil barons. taken advantage of by those incompetent regulators.

Gosh, why would they need more than a few, what with market forces keeping folks like the Kochs in line.
