Can you say, “Wag the dog?” (I knew you could ;-)
Wag the dog is exactly what’s going here.
Glenn Beck mentioned yesterday that while Zero was partying in RIO, that the DOE had issued a permit for a BRAZILIAN company to build a storage facility in the Gulf. (para)
I couldn’t stay awake to listen to the recast. I have check the DOE site etc, can’t find anything on it. a company that SOROS invested 800,000 million in during 2008. any help?
What a sham. and a shame.
To see FRee peoples putting on chains for the sake of their gubamints.
When gubamint runs the plantations, no one is free.. or safe.
There is a day coming when the despots and elected officials will be called to task.. and it won’t be pretty when it gets here.
