The greatest Corporatocracy on the planet . . .

Apparently I have not been paying close attention to what's been going on in my country -- otherwise I would have known that America had officially changed it's name to The United States of British Petroleum.

When CBS tried to film a beach with heavy oil on the shore in South Pass, Louisiana, a boat of BP contractors, and two Coast Guard officers, told them to turn around, or be arrested.

"This is BP's rules, it's not ours," someone aboard the boat said. Coast Guard officials told CBS that they're looking into it.

As the Coast Guard is a branch of the Armed Forces, it brings into question how closely the government and BP are working together to keep details of the disaster in the dark.
