Illegal BP Oil Spill Photos?




The below re-posted [from here]

You Are Not Authorized to See These Pictures of the Oil Spill, Citizen ... Do Not Look!


Preface: The title is a parody of the fact that the government has effectively made it a felony to take pictures of oiled wildlife.
While most of these pictures have previously been published by the mainstream media - and presumably will remain publicly available - that assumption is not 100% certain. By way of analogy, the government sometimes reclassifies as top secret information which was previously declassified.

More importantly, while some of these photos have been widely seen, most have not, and I have never seen them rounded up in a single page before.

Jonathan Elinoff has rounded up rarely-seen videos and pictures of the gulf oil spill:

This is a photo of a dolphin pulled from the gulf....

Below you will find a picture of millions of dead fish. These are small fish, possible baby fish. They are slowly washing ashore and towards the ports. Over 9,000 species of animals will be under threat of extinction in this region, we might not ever see again on the planet. Click the image to enlarge it.

meal·y-mouthed (ml-moud, -moutht)
adj.
Unwilling to state facts or opinions simply and directly.
Word History: It seems fitting that Martin Luther, a man noted for the forthright expression of his ideas, may have had a hand in giving us the contemptuous term we apply to those unwilling to state facts or opinions directly. Mealy-mouthed may come from a saying such as German Mehl im Maule behalten, "to carry meal in the mouth, that is, not to be direct in speech," which occurs in Luther's writings. In English we find the terms mealmouth (1546) and meal-mouthed (1576) recorded around the same time that we find mealymouthed (around 1572). Mealy-mouthed is the only form that survived to describe this trait described by Luther, which not only survives but flourishes in our time.

The Power of the Boycott - Max Keiser on Economics 101


Text with video:
corbettreport | July 14, 2010
Max Keiser joins us to talk about Karmabanque, a way to use the leverage of the hedge funds to turn Wall Street against the multinationals. We discuss the Coke boycott and the power of strategic activism.

http://www.karmabanque.com/

Exxon/Mobil is out to purchase BP. One, even bigger oil company, might be even worse for the world. Freedom might involve boycotts and making big companies split into smaller ones. People should not be second, or even put last, by "elected" officials. The people's perception should not be that it is a one world government run by corporate heads. The fight is necessary and will be steeply uphill.

I was asked by "anonymous" this morning why I would post the Mark Lanoue story with BP Oil Spill photos.

Well, if there is no justice in the courts on the lowest level, small claims, and there are no investigations, or a rigged one, when a citizen without political, organized crime, and police connections, pisses off someone who does, is it okay for the connected one to hire thugs to kill someone who pisses him off?

So, the crapulent justice and policing on the lowest levels, mirrors what we have in the US on the highest levels.

If I take a picture of a bird soaked in oil on a beach I can be arrested and serve time as a felon!!! I would not be able to vote, own a gun, get a job, or travel outside the US for that!!!

Fuck it, let me out before they close the border!!!

I guess the rednecks in the coast guard and BP forgot about the internet lol. The pics are everywhere.

Also, these contractors and coast guard guys marching around preventing people from taking photos will most likely come down with some weird disease. Karmas a bitch.

An aspect the pictures and video don't have is the smell. Your eyes and nose burn. You don't know until you see, smell, and feel it that the government lies and they always have.
