    Check this one out!!!!

    RICO law made to combat Mafia used in BP lawsuits By CURT
    ANDERSON (AP) 8 hours ago

    "Attorneys are using a law enacted to combat the Mafia in
    lawsuits accusing BP and Transocean of committing crimes
    that led to the Gulf of Mexico oil spill....RICO, which
    stands for Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt
    Organizations....Civil RICO cases can lead to criminal
    prosecutions. The Justice Department is looking at all
    possible criminal violations. Copyright 2010 The

    Wonder if I could get a copy of this RICO filing so I could
    just white out some names, insert others and file a new
    RICO suit. With the way things have been going of rampant
    agnotology in the US, seems like someone should just make a
    template for filing these things with fill in the blanks
    for the named co-conspirators de jour.

    It's all the same game. Many of the same players are seen
    over and over again - just a different day, different cause
    of environmental illness to deny and to profit from casting
    doubt upon.

    Agnotology is "the study of culturally-induced ignorance or
    doubt, particularly the publication of inaccurate or
    misleading scientific data. Ignorance is often not merely
    the absence of knowledge but an outcome of cultural and
    political struggle."
