The new plutocracy

ExxonMobil, the world's largest international corporation, has hired a
Dutch company to transport 207 loads of Asian-made equipment bound for
Canada across Idaho and Montana.

They also will hire the Idaho and Montana state Ppolice to make sure
American citizens give up their right to free-flowing travel on U.S.
highways and access to "public" turnouts along those highways.

Once Harvest Energy begins its 40 to 63 shipments, our state police will
actually be contracted to a foreign sovereign power. Harvest Energy is
fully owned by the Korea National Oil Corporation, an arm of the Korean

Idaho Transportation Department records show that 247 to 270 shipments are
already planned for 2011. Evidence grows that the megaload transports to
Canada's tar sands will continue for at least the next 10 years.

The new high and wide transportation corridor now being developed will
facilitate the export to Asia of billions of dollars worth of American
manufacturing jobs. Idahoans and Montanans will subsidize international
corporations and foreign governments with lost time at rolling roadblocks,
taxes to repair damaged roadways, lost property values along the
transportation corridor and our personal freedoms - and even our state

Welcome to the new plutocracy where wealth and power reign.

Once the megaloads begin to roll through the highway 12 corridor, the
region's prestine beauty will slowly and irreversibly deteriorate until it
is nothing more than a memory.
