And now, a commercial for Great Gazpacho.
“Without oil, there’s no plastic for those toys”
And nothing has changed…
It’s starting to sound like a conspiracy.
Yay, let’s hear it for OIL!!!
What country should we invade, next?
Ruben must have read General Smedley Butler’s “War is a Racket.” Butler came to that conclusion when the US military took a lesson from England and went to Central America to defend the Chiquita Corporation’s banana empire. They didn’t want to pay fair prices to their slave labor. It wasn’t so much about oil at that time, but certainly set the 20th century precedent for using a standing army to go after whatever the oligarch families wanted.
As a kid, just gimme a bag full of army men and a hot light bulb (or a hot hibachi grill) and I’d be a happy camper!
Yeah, I was a disturbed child.
