Oil companies breach the basic human rights of the underprivileged and minorites. I filed two lawsuits, one against Unocal (now Cheron) and another agaist ARAMCO services company, but both were in vain due to corrupt lawyers and radical Republican judges. Now , I will be filing a third loawsuit agaist Chevron for denying my legitimate insurance benefits. I wrote to President Obma about it-but he is a very weak President who is only busy collecting campaign contribution, but has nt replied my mail. Oil companies are bunch of Ku-Klax-Klans, who employ bunch of white supremacists to trample the rights of the Asians, Blacks, Latinos and other minorites. They need to be exposed. Judgement of Ecuador is just an example; what happened to the poor people in India who have been paralyzed and maimed for life by Union Carbide without a penny of compensation ! I am an ex-Unocal employee and is writing a book "Corporate Ku Klax Klan" and will be published in India and thousands of copies I will distribute in U.S. market. These are bunch of greedy jackals, who never consider welfare of their workers and poor natives or underprivileged people. They are bunch of ashholes who are big thieves who stash billions of dollars by abusing, exploiting and discriminating agaist the minorities and people who cannot protest or have no legal resources to fight !

You know what I hate more than racist bastards? Racist bastards who pull excuses out of their asses to call blame others of being racists and pretend they are champions of equality.

CORPORATIONS EVERYWHERE IN THE WORLD do this kind of shit. EVERYWHERE. And not just oil companies, MOST international corporations do this.

Ecuador, with the 9.5 billion judgement is not doing it for the people or the environment. The government is trying to make money off of an international corporation. You think the Ecudaro's government and the officials involved in the case care about the natives or the environment? You think they will spend $9.5 billion on ENVIRONMENTAL RESTORATION IN ECUADOR??? What they are doing is even more disgusting than what Chevron was doing. Chevron exploited people and the corrupt officials are using these exploited people to make money for themselves by pretending to be fighting for the victims...
And at the same time, there is a racist bastard pretending that just oil companies are like this and they employ "white supremacists."
Hypocrite and a moron. A sublime combination.
