The Glowing Hogan; An Afterthought

The BP gulf oil spill should prove how little the English businessman cares about the American environment. BP was originally labeled the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company, an organization directed by the English Crown to extract as much of Iran’s petroleum as possible for the Royal Navy. They did so, until the people of Iran kicked them out, hence, the name change. History repeats itself. An English firm is granted the authority to destroy one of the seven wonders of the natural world, decimate a local population, and destroy an enormous aquifer, all in the name of filthy lucre. It is joined by a Canadian firm with the same purpose.

Americans do denial very well. Our media bombards us daily with  a plethora of nonsensical and useless information. We are mesmerised into a nebulous apathy. It is no wonder that we are so easily led. It is intended. The American people must never forget the looming crisis being nurtured at the Grand Canyon as they flip through multiple TV channels with their remotes. We can avert this disaster before it happens. Influence Congressmen Gosar, Franks, and Flake to reverse their positions, or vote them out of office, replacing them with more responsible legislators. Show your representatives, your senators, yes, and even the White House that you are watching, before it is too late. The clock is ticking.



About Stefan Jacke

MagicRobert presented me with a vellum document, composed in an insane script. We were in a well secured vault in the Michener Library. His face exploded into a broad smile, as he saw me recognize the words, "That government governs best which governs least." It was a copy of "On Civil Disobedience" in the author's own hand. The experience called to mind a conversation Henry David Thoreau had with Ralph Waldo Emerson, as Thoreau sat in a jail cell, incarcerated for protesting the Mexican War. Emerson asked, "David, what are you doing in there?" Thoreau responded, "The point is, Ralph, what are you doing out there?" Once, long ago, I jumped off of big red trucks, lifted weights, and cleaned toilets for a living. Then I wrestled drunks, ran around in circles, and got splattered with blood and all manner of body fluids for a living. Now I enjoy the stillness of early morning in my rocking chair on the porch, with a hot cup of coffee, trying in vain to forget the past. Thank you, Robert!
