And Don’t Forget the “OTHER” Royal Wedding
The world will be glued to the Royal Wedding tonight and tomorrow. Less well known — but with far greater consequences — is the Other Royal Wedding. That would be, of course, the R-OIL wedding — the marriage of the Republican Party and the Oil Industry.
Here’s the invitation:
“You are cordially invited to the R-OIL Wedding. Please join Special Guest Speaker John Boehner in celebrating the sacred and lasting union between the Republican Party and Big Oil. In lieu of gifts, please send corporate tax breaks at the expense of middle class Americans.”
Tens of billions of dollars in tax subsidies to the oil industry, oil speculators driving up the price of gasoline — Big Oil and the GOP get married and America gets fucked.
