Re: Louisiana Shrimper Speaks Out Against BP/ARCO: 'Today I'd Have 80-90 Guys Working For Me... They're All Without Jobs Now'
Dozens of fishermen hired by BP/ARCO to be Janitors have become ill.
They can't speak up to their friends or the Press or their friendly local politicians because they have signed confidentiality agreements which state they will not get paid and will not get any health care paid for if they speak.
Adding insult to injury is BP/ARCO's boss, Tony Hayworth. Describing BP/ARCO's take on what a likely cause is for their illness, Hayworth says:
"It very well could be food poisoning" that's sickened the men.
'When Plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men,
they create for themselves, in the course of time,
a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it.'
Frederic Bastiat, 'The Law'
"The business of the journalists is to destroy the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to vilify, to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread. You know it and I know it, and what folly is this toasting an independent press? We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes."
JohnSwinton, 1830-1901, Former chief-of-staff New York Times
"The bold effort the present bank has made to control the Government, the distress it has wantonly produced ... are but premonitions of the fate that awaits the American People should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution (The Bank of the United States), or the establishment of another like it." Andrew Jackson (December 2, 1834)
