The Gulf and Our Future is Dying by deregulation.
DEREGULATED Financial systems that allow the insiders who have bought our government, to create a monstrous cosmic debt of one and a half Trillion dollars out of derivatives and other imaginative frauds while the SEC looks the other way. So, after the rampant looting thusly enabled, the lives and future of the majority of Americans have been crushed.
DEREGULATED Industrial extraction has now murdered the life in the Gulf of Mexico as well as countless river valleys through mountain top removal, the 5000 year old redwood forests of the west and the air of this Earth through war production with its spreading DNA ruin of 'depleted' Uranium from the nuclear industry. Just to name a few.
The chain that holds capital in check needs to be locked around this dragon and if we need to forge it still glowing with the heat of public outrage, so be it.
