How Are We Not Outraged?

We have been hearing about this oil spill in the Gulf for almost two months now, and I just realized that I am furious about it. Up until now I have been reacting like I normally do to the news. I shake my head and scoff at the failure of our politicians, the corruption of government regulations, and the greed of CEOs and shareholders.

When I first heard about the spill I thought, “Wow! That sucks. They better get that taken care of soon. I’m sure they will.” I was fucking wrong. Seriously, how are we not outraged? People should be rioting outside BP’s US headquarters in Houston. I mean fucking rioting! Would rioting make the oil spill stop? No, but it might make us feel a little better.

I still see people buying gas at BP stations. WTF?!?!? Have they not been listening to the fucking news? How could you voluntarily give your money to a corporation that is single-handedly destroying the ecosystem in the Gulf? AAAAHHHHH!!!!!

What can we do about this?

I think we should have an effigy and burn the sh*t outta it.

During the burning ceremony we can get people to vow to conserve energy (fuel efficient cars, lower the heat in winter, not crank up the AC in Summer).

Isn't there some kind of petition online thing that we can make and have people can email it around and get friends and family to say that they'll do those things?

Well, I just went on-

http://new.petitiononline.com/petition.htmll

and it seems you can start an online petition fairly easily. I think we can get someone who knows about energy conservation (the kind everyday people can do at home)to write a draft (like a 10 point list) that would be a step in the right direction.

Andy, I think this is a great idea, but I'm not totally clear on the purpose.

Are we making a petition to get BP's attention? Or are we using the oil spill to light a fire under people's asses?

Do you know anyone who knows about energy conservation?

Andy said...

I think it would serve as a way for an average everydat person to commit to lowering their eneergy use. The petition would help connect the dots concerning individual energy use and the oil disaster in the Gulf. The government isn't doing enough to push energy conservation and this could be a way to do so.

I think this is great. We just need someone with a little more know-how to write it up.

Hmmm... I'm going to email PZ Meyers (that Phayngua guy and see what he thinks).

After we stood by and did nothing while President Obama allowed confessed war criminal Dick Cheney escape accountability without even a slap on the wrist, I lost hope that anything can outrage the American people to the point where we take to the streets. I fear that our politicians and their corporate masters have known this for a long time.
