An Ad I Just Can’t Resist Sharing: “Exxon Hates Your Children” Not Exactly Breaking News, but—

Random and free associations Alert!

Yes, this beauty came my way via an email to sign a petition and–well–it’s just too wonderful to not share with folks who understand the ways of the world as they’ve been–AND–that this insanity must stop!  I think it’s a great ad because while the likes of Exxon have tons of cash to spread their view of how things “are” according to their well oiled brainpans, those who don’t exactly cozy up to their thinking aren’t exactly swimming in equal amounts of cash oceans for sharing a very different view of the status quo.

In other “news” which I’m still processing–I saw a video on Yahoo News about some whales trapped by ice (they’ve since found a way OUT) and the refusal of the Canadian government to render aid. Hmm. The fate of eleven killer whales isn’t of much concern to world governments–unless people start doing something about it and getting press coverage.  Ouch, I think this could be applied to Indigenous/First Nations issues in Canada, the United States and pretty much around the globe.  Shhh, hear that?  Idle No More is dancing somewhere in the world to the beat of a very different drum.

Yikes, can I connect this thought dot with the Powertech Uranium Corporation? O hell yes I can!  Do you see where this is going now? Yeah to more utter disregard for Earth, people, animals, and everything that does not bring in BIG PROFITS!

Is there a problem with some values?

Only if you’re thinking along the same interconnecting dot lines.  Or perhaps some other routes too–routes that don’t lead to Wall Street, stock shares, investors and profits by any means no matter what the price in environmental degradation.

Exxon is probably well aware of this ad by now as it has 122, 457 views on YouTube thanks to the other 98% and Oil Change International. Hence, I’m sure they’re all primed and ready for PR spin. If they bother. Afterall it’s only a 30 second sound bite–just the sort of thing the multitasking population feeds on and tosses off while reaching for the next bite.

Oh and for some relief here’s some Cohen and The Last Trapper/Le Dernier Trappeur:

It all works for me. Sorry if you’re confused by all these seemingly random “dots.”

Also, sorry to break the poetic streaming. Will resume soon.

    It does make many important points. Why do we need to continue subsidizing an industry that boasts such record profits? We have so many things backwards in this country.

      Those record breaking profits are astounding indeed. And the prices for “us” keep on rising. Perhaps the intent is to provoke a revolt? Or the intent is profit minded and damn full steam ahead? Uspide down, inside out and backwards indeed. Where are all the enlighted progressives? Hmm?
