    "Accidentally" my tailfeathers!!! This is the only thing that might just smell dirtier than the oil spill itself!

    OMG! They got him! I was afraid that this would happen. To those evil poisoners this man was "too dangerous" so they silenced him. It's probably meant to scare other whistle blowers into shutting up.

  • Whistleblowers know the risk and do their duty anyway. Their lives are never wasted for they inspire others to step up and do the same.

    If we "turn the other cheek" like Benny the Rat wants us to, they will continue to kill us off. I generally believe in the Bible as devine guidance. But the first one was assembled by Benny's role model, Constantine. Changes were made. And God warned against that. Throw in The Queen of England's and Rothchild's U.N. and we have real problems.
    Matthew Simmons was a class act, even if he pushed the wrong reason for conservation.
