Radio talk show host and former Reagan cabinet advisor Mark Levin has slammed President Obama’s bizarre announcement that he will be sending SWAT teams to deal with the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, alleging that the response is part of a plan to grease the skids for government takeover and nationalization of the oil industry.
In a move that has shocked and dumbfounded political observers in equal measure, Obama said yesterday the “Department of Interior has announced that they will be sending SWAT teams to the Gulf to inspect all platforms and rigs.”
Levin alleged that the response was a precursor to government nationalization of the oil industry via the back door. “I think those SWAT teams are there in coordination with the attorney general’s office, the Interior Department, Homeland Security, maybe the EPA….to seize records at these sites and to lay the foundation for more government takeover,” he stated.
Levin added that he was stunned with the media’s nonchalant reaction at Obama’s flagrant abuse of power.
“It just stuns me that we’re sending SWAT teams to all platforms and rigs, not ecological experts, not various scientific experts, not engineers – we’re sending SWAT Teams – we don’t even send SWAT teams to the border….you don’t send SWAT teams to rigs in the middle of an environmental problem,” he said.
Do you remember those flea markets in Orlando I told you about? There were two kinds. The first kind of flea market had rusty old bicycles and cardboard boxes full of drill bits and broken record players. Something for everyone.
The other kind of flea market had all the vendors selling BluBlockers sunglasses and Sham Wow cloths and other as-seen-on-TV stuff. Everyone selling the same junk.
In America's new economy --if these bankers have anything to do with it, and they will-- there will be five available jobs: WalMart clerk. Goon. Snitch. Jail Guard. Goon.
Welcome to Goon Nation. (And your freedom --for those with big shiny trucks and Freedom Isn't Free! bumper stickers-- is inversely proportional to the number of goons you see running around with guns.)
Goons are just guys who once would have worked in an auto-body shop and beat each other's heads in at a bar on Friday night.
Now they're barking orders. Enjoy your new police state. (And you maintain that you're free and No. 1 because why again?) They're not here to protect you. They're here to enslave you. It was an ol' switcheroo.
Sounds like it's time for some oil company private security to escort these idiot goons back to their harmless jobs knocking out dents or changing tires.
Ah, that'll do it: More goons! We need more goons. Goons invent linear accelerators. They explore the stars. They develop new medical procedures. Goons pioneer new technologies. Goons make art. Vivaldi and Michelangelo were goons. Every society needs more goons barking orders and waving guns around.
You can be sure your society will never make it to the pantheon of human cultures if all you're known for is your goons.
Can you guess what two things you will immediately do when you jump inside your exoskeleton jurisdiction? One, you will flood the market with all sorts of brand-new legal mechanisms, just like the Patriot Act. (That is, you will increase the number of finger-tip legal switches in your Powerloader.) The Patriot Act is a magical compendium. It's good for what ails ya. There's something in there that sticks on anyone, just look hard enough.
And, two, you will hire all sorts of new goons. (That is, you will install additional hydraulic hoses and pumps on your Powerloader. Strong like bull!)
You got cuckoo law now and you got more goons than you know what to do with. And if you want to de-industrialize your slave nation, you can have your goons attack the methods of energy production and the methods of manufacture.
Yeah, I'd say your country's done for. Ya been hoodwinked. Enjoy your candy, though. Idiots. It's democracy in action. Democracy is idiots weighing in on matters.
Don't speak next time. Remain silent if anything out of the ordinary happens.
