It looks like Obama will have to go back to the drawing board on getting his energy plan out to the public! The Democratic hopeful had originally planed to broadcast campaign ads detailing his energy plan on gas station televisions around Florida, but Gas Station TV pulled out of the deal last minute denying they had ever made the agreement at all.

CEO David Leider said, “At a time when presidential campaign ads monopolize prime time, we believe it is important to be able to provide traditional advertisers with a clutter-free environment to showcase their brands and target marketing messages to a captive audience.” Re-read that statement!! A clutter-free environment for advertising? Umm…oxymoron called, they want their concept back!

Oh and you better believe the Obama camp thinks it’s way deeper than that. Obama spokesman Mark Bubriski said, “Once again, the oil companies and their friends are standing with Sen. McCain, the candidate for President who is proposing to offer them a $4 billion tax cut.” Adding, “It looks like Gas Station TV doesn’t want the American people to know about Sen. Obama’s plan to offer working families a $1,000 energy rebate.” 

Between the recent McCain/Paris/Britney television controversy and now this, it kinda makes you wonder what’s next!

Prisons profit from exploiting life and labour

Most young workers don’t want anything to do with manual labour jobs in meat and dairy, and as a result, a large majority of agricultural workers are marginalized people

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.
