5,000 Americans die each year from food related illnesses, 325,000 are hospitalized. But they aren’t related to the President and don’t have the money to ensure their food is safe. The sad reality is that in our celebrity-driven media culture not all lives have equal power when it comes to media awareness and political change.
There is a food safety bill languishing in the Senate because the people who have died just didn’t have the right connections, a good narrative and someone who has the power to follow through.

Two stories on The Gulf. One, from front lines, the other, from corporate lines.

One hundred days after the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded creating the worst environmental disaster in the world’s history, those who live down along the Gulf coast in the areas that have been most impacted are standing strong and reminding the world that, while the well gushing oil may have been capped and while BP CEO Tony Hayward may be going to Siberia, the disaster is not over.

“By sinking and dispersing the oil, BP can amortize the cost of the cleanup over the next 15 years or so, as tar balls continue to roll up on the beaches, rather than dealing with the issue now by removing the oil from the water with the proper equipment,” McCallister testified earlier this week before the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation. “As a financial adviser, I understand financial engineering and BP’s desire to stretch out its costs of remediating the oil spill in the Gulf. By managing the cleanup over a period of many years, BP is able to minimize the financial damage as opposed to a huge expenditure in a period of a few years.”

Questions the “Oilwellian” happy-talk about the minimal toxicity emanating from the chemical soup in the Gulf.

A fisherman’s wife sees behind the scene’s PR tricks of BP. CNN could have revealed these same tricks to viewers, but fish don’t discover water. They are oblivious to the standard deception that an “uneducated housewife” reveals. The media need stories like this because they don’t see their job as pressing the corporations. However they will reporting on other people pressing the corporations.

OSHA’s director claims the workers trying to clean up BP’s oilpocalypse don’t need breathing protection. Hey, at least OSHA’s consistent. OSHA pretended the 9/11 rescue and clean up workers didn’t need respiratory protection. We all know how well that worked out. Now that EPA OK’d dumping a million gallons of incredibly toxic dispersant into the Gulf, NMS OK’d the catastrophically negligent and incompetent drilling/clean-up permits, and the Coast Guard’s OK’d their owner BP’s orders to detain and repel media from BP’s crime scene, why should we expect OSHA to do any better? As with all the other Executive Branch “regulatory” agencies, the corporatist servants revolving through the Oval Office long ago perverted the agency’s mission from one of public protection into one of permitting pollution.

Do you ever get the feeling that you are living in historic times? I don’t mean “historic” in the common sense, in which we record whatever happens as history. I mean “historic” as in, a really, really, really important era; one that will change the way man governs himself forever. A time that will set us free from the lies that the wealthy and powerful few tell us to control us; a control they have exerted for as long as history has been recorded.
How would such a time distinguish itself from all of the rest of history? How would future generations know that when they looked at our history, it was set apart, holy (holy literally means set apart; a religious connotation is not necessary). How would they know that when they read of the events in our time, they were discovering a moment in mankind when the masses shrugged off the chains that bound them, and never again would they allow themselves to be enslaved? What sets us apart? What sets now apart?
