Pizza! Pizza!

By mike flugennockWednesday - February 19th, 2014Categories: environment

In the aftermath of a massive hydraulic fracking well explosion in Bobtown, Pennsylvania, near Pittsburgh, Chevron Oil engaged in what had to be the silliest, most boneheaded PR gesture ever — offering free pizza to local residents near the well.

Christ, man… where the hell do you start with shit like this?

Almost Hell

By mike flugennockTuesday - January 21st, 2014Categories: environment

Back in the ’70s, the entire DC Metro area — especially the Virginia suburbs — was awash in tourist shop T-shirts bearing this design with the two-word slogan taken from the notorious John Denver song being beaten to death on Top 40 radio at the time. As I let my mind chew on the Al Jazeera America news reports on the continuing chemical spill situation in West Virginia, I somehow stumbled over the memory of this cheesy T-shirt art.

Chris Christie Festival

It’s time once again for the latest headlines of the day on MSNBC… and here with the headlines is Barbie Anchorbabe…

It’s not as if there hasn’t been a metric shit-ton of important news happening in the past week or so. You’ve got the Mexican “autodefensas” battling the drug cartels, the Fullerton, California cops who beat and tasered a homeless man to death, Obama’s worthless tap-dancing NSA speech — but probably the biggest story of the week has to be the massive chemical spill in Elk River, West Virginia, which left 300,000 people in nine counties without fresh water.

Of course, you wouldn’t know that from watching the Democratic Party noise machine in action at MSNBC, which has spent almost all of its available air time this week on the trumped-up “Bridgegate” scandal in New Jersey involving Governor Chris Christie, who’s also considered a major hopeful for the 2016 GOP Presidential nomination. Coincidence? Naahhhh.
