Is there No Limit to the Deviousness of the American Capitalist?

Damn those American companies who take foreign money! Damn them to the hottest regions of the infernal! When will their treachery cease?

In a different day and age, Jeff Hart would be the most famous American in our country right now. He would be honored at the White House. Schoolchildren would learn of his skill and heroism. But because Jeff Hart works in an industry under fire by the Obama administration, more people in Chile will celebrate this symbol of American greatness than in American itself.

Jeff Hart is a driller based in my home state of Colorado. The father of two has been drilling water wells in Afghanistan at U.S. Army bases. When the San Jose Mine in Chile collapsed in August, he flew to lend his renowned expertise to the rescue effort. As part of an amazing three-way race to the trapped miners, Hart drilled for 33 days straight and was first to reach the caved-in workers.

Did you see that? Not only does he take money from shadowy foreign concerns, but he’s an enabler of George W. BushHitlerBurton’s immoral war in Afghanistan.

In the words of a great American, true patriot Keith Olbermann, have you no shame, Sir?
