In Topic: Russia claims Arctic region. Sends troops, warships and airplanes.

Yesterday, 01:03 PM

Exxon is an American company and they are even considering working with Russia?  They have proven to be scum but this may take the cake.


Exxon Chief executive Lee Raymond "I'm not a U.S. company, and I don't make decisions based on what's good for the U.S." 


Patriotism is simply not part of the culture at a multinational corporation like Exxon. Years ago, the company's then-chief executive Lee Raymond was asked about building more U.S. refineries to protect the economy and consumers from fuel shortages. Raymond's response, memorialized in a book about Exxon by Steve Coll, was this: "I'm not a U.S. company, and I don't make decisions based on what's good for the U.S."

For Exxon, its shareholders and other energy companies, Russia's allure is a simple matter.

The country, already the world's top oil producer and the largest exporter of natural gas, has promising fossil fuel prospects in shale formations, heavy oil, the Arctic seas and elsewhere. That bounty has led to Russian deals with Exxon and most of its global brethren, including BP, Shell, Chevron, Eni (Italy), Total (France), Statoil (Norway), PSVSA (Venezuela), Petrobras (Brazil) and plenty of others.

They are all doing business with Russian oil and gas companies and Putin, the man House Speaker John Boehner has called a "thug." BP even owns nearly 20 percent of Rosneft, the state-controlled oil company that is now subject to U.S. and European economic sanctions.

What we all need to realize is that the CEOs of these National Multi-National Pan National, Mega Corporations don't give a fug about us or the USA. 

 

The only thing that keeps them up at night is the thought that they failed to squeeze every last dime out of a business deal.  If that means putting our nation's security at risk, then so be it, they will still sleep like babies.
 
That is why unfettered lobbying and political donations by these immoral, soulless, profit driven institutions are by far the biggest threat to our nation's security and our American way of life.

How many lawless teens were shot during this unprovoked riot in NH?

 

Based on the destruction, I'm guessing the number must have been substantial.


In Topic: What if we distributed private school vouchers

20 October 2014 - 02:04 PM

You're talking about a voucher...not the curriculum.  Curriculum and testing still has to meet state education guidelines.  I think that's pretty clear right now except to religious bigots that use this as a way of mocking believers or the racists they believe to be behind every door.


Fourth-grade creationist science quiz: Dinosaurs lived millions of years ago — False

The test questions and answers reflect the beliefs of Young Earth creationist theory, which holds that the universe and everything in it was created by God some 6,000 years ago. Dinosaurs and humans co-existed, in this belief system. This explains some of the answers on the test.

There are religious schools around the country that teach this, including some that take students who have publicly funded vouchers.
