Connecting the US dots

Green presidential candidate has been arrested again for taking food to protestors attempting to stop a tar sands oil pipeline. Apparently 33 people have been arrested on this protest, the previous person was a 78 year old grandmother arrested for trespassing on her own land - and we think that UK democracy is crap!

This Jill Stein's quote from Think Progress:

“I’m here to connect the dots between super storm Sandy and the record heat, drought, and fire we’ve seen this year – and this Tar Sands pipeline, which will make all of these problems much worse. And I’m here to connect the dots between climate devastation and pipeline politicians – both Obama and Romney – who are competing, as we saw in the debates, for the role of Puppet In Chief for the fossil fuel industry. Both deserve that title. Obama’s record of ‘drill baby drill’ has gone beyond the harm done by George Bush. Mitt Romney promises more of the same.”
