Screw The Red Cross, No More Blood No More Blood For Oil

We WORKED OUR ASSES OFF to elect Democrats who would put an stop to the Iraq occupation. What did we get: CAPITULATION to the chimperator!!! Time to vote with your BLOOD! This is war, after all.
The "Red Cross" pretends that your donated blood will go to some sweet grandma, or maybe you, in some hospital. IT WILL NOT! It will go to keep some poor trooper alive in Iraq who never should have been there to begin with (so saith the Geneva Conventions, and the ELECTED Iraqi Government). If they keep some soldier alive with your blood, they will only send him or her back to be finished off anyway!!!

Now is the time to vote with your BLOOD, since you were already denied any chance to vote in a booth in any meaningful way anyway. STOP DONATING BLOOD!!! This is war. People are going to suffer. Maybe some of us need to suffer too!

Please try to understand that Bush et al. are STEALING BILLIONS of dollars worth of Oil from Iraq RIGHT NOW, right under our noses.

THIS AIN'T ABOUT FREEDOM -- IT'S ABOUT OIL.

WE MUST DEMAND THAT UN INSPECTORS PUT METERS ON EVERY OIL WELL AND PIPELINE IN IRAQ, AND TAKE ACCOUNT OF WHERE EVERY LAST DROP, AND EVERY LAST OIL PENNY GOES.

I can't believe the silence on the issue of pushing Congress to press Bush for stipulations to require that meters be installed on all Iraqi Oil pumps and pipelines, and that the meters be monitored by UN Inspectors. The following recurring comment may always be found at

[....]
Iraq pumped 3.5M barrels daily before Bush invaded
and then they got their 2003 Halliburton upgrade
Bush is stealing $220,000,000 every day.
No wonder they were so eager to start a war,
stealing $220,000,000 every day.
It's the biggest theft in Earth's history.
Exxon made $10B profit in 90 days
$100M a day - all profit - because Bush started a fake war

Bush's "Bring 'em on" death taunt is up to...
3,409....3,422 American victims

13 more families destroyed by Bush greed since last issue.
14 if you count the families of the kidnapped.
...and how much did BIG OIL make yesterday?
Exxon makes $108M - every day
Bush can live with that,
because Iraq's oil wells have no meters
and his front company is moving to Dubai.

The Red Cross An Extension Of Republican Party
Jimbo92107's diary
Screw the Red Cross

The Red Cross is an extension of the Republican party. All its executives are Republican operatives, and its policies conform with whatever the Republican party wants.

As a result, the same dysfunctional attitudes pervade the Red Cross, as has become clear throughout this latest and largest crisis in America. The Red Cross has been turning away help from all over the country, including Atlanta, according to AAR's Mike Malloy, who tried to deliver a load of baby food and Pampers to a local Red Cross shelter.

They were turned away.

Eventually Malloy delivered his goods to the Salvation Army, but really that's not the answer, either.

Instead, try contacting Second Harvest.

These people don't seem to be hampered by the conservative compassion I've been hearing about from the first two, especially the Red Cross.

In Fact, The Hell With The Red Cross Scum

Do a little quick and dirty civil disobedience! Just go to the nearest blood donation center, try to sign up, and then simply commit a little petty patriotic perjury for the good of your country!

On the LONG form they hand you, mention that you take digitalis for a cardiac condition, thus corrupting their secret database dossier on you forever. The great digitalis avalanche could become a hot news item in three days!!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In the end, a blood boycott will save millions of lives! You need to ask which is more important: Stopping WW III, or saving a few more hospital patients. Really, a patient's chances are much more at risk from our nation's disastrous medical/legal quagmire than from any shortage of blood.

I tried to donate blood at my workplace, to Red Cross, years ago, to be turned away. It turns out blood from transsexuals isn't clean.

the Red Cross and its response to Katrina. One well-publicized story has the Red Cross throwing Hispanics out of the shelters because they didn't have 'papers'. (Who did? It was a hurricane! People were dying on rooftops and drowning in their nursing home beds.) Some people were pulled nearly naked from showers and 'escorted' to the parking lot.

After that, and other stories, I said, "Not one more dollar. Ever."
