*Shell Oil Comments - A MUST READ**!


> The  Shell Oil Company recently issued a warning after three incidents  in
> which mobile phones (cell phones) ignited fumes during fueling  operations 
> **
> **     ** In the first case, the phone  was placed on the car's trunk lid
> during fueling; it rang and the ensuing  fire destroyed the car and the
> gasoline pump.*

> *  **     **In the second**, an individual suffered severe  burns to their
> face when fumes ignited as they answered a call while  refueling their car!
> **
> **   **  ** And in the third,  an individual suffered burns to the thigh
> and groin as fumes ignited when  the phone, which was in their pocket, rang
> while they were fueling their  car.
> **
> **     You should know that: Mobile Phones  can ignite fuel or fumes **
> **     Mobile phones that  light up when switched on or when they ring,
> release enough energy to  provide a spark for ignition
> **
> **     Mobile  phones should not be used in filling stations, or when
> fueling lawn  mowers, boat, etc.
> **
> **     Mobile phones should  not be used or should be turned off, around
> other materials that generate  flammable or explosive fumes or dust.  
> (i.e., solvents, chemicals,  gases, grain dust, etc.)
> ** **
> **   Bob Renkes of Petroleum  Equipment Institute is working on a campaign
> to try and make people aware  of fires as a result of 'static electricity'
> at gas pumps.  His  company has researched 150 cases of these  fires.
> **
> **            His results were very  surprising:
> 1) Out of 150 cases, almost all of them were  women.
> 2) Almost all cases involved the person getting back in their
> vehicle  while the nozzle was still pumping gas.  When finished, they  went
> back to pull the nozzle out and the fire started, as a result of  static.
> 3) Most had on rubber-soled  shoes.
> 4) Most men never get back in their vehicle until completely
> finished.  This is why they are seldom involved in these types of  fires.
> 5) Don't ever use cell phones when pumping  gas.
> 6) It is the vapors that come out of the gas that cause the
> fire, when  connected with static  charges.
> 7) There were 29 fires where the vehicle was re-entered and the
> nozzle  was touched during refueling from a variety of makes and  models.
> Some resulted in extensive damage to the vehicle, to the  station, and to
> the  customer.
> 8)  Seventeen fires occurred before, during or immediately
> after the  gas cap was removed and before fueling  began.

> Mr.  Renkes stresses to NEVER get back into your vehicle  while
> filling it with  gas.
> **
> **            If you absolutely HAVE to get in your vehicle while the gas
> is pumping,  make sure you get out, close the door TOUCHING THE  METAL,
> before  you ever pull the nozzle out.  This way the static from your  body
> will be discharged before you ever remove the  nozzle.
> **
> **            As I mentioned earlier, The Petroleum Equipment Institute,
> along with  several other companies now, are really trying to make the
> public aware  of this  danger.

> I  ask you to please send this information to ALL your family
> and  friends, especially those who have kids in the car with them  while
> pumping gas.   If this were to happen to them, they may  not be able to get
> the children out in time. Thanks for passing this  along.*

 President Bill Clinton de-activated The glass-steagall act in 1999 which was put into law in 1930s after the stock market crash in 1929 to make it a law that banksters couldn't GAMBLE with peoples deposits. Bill Clinton Un did it, Hence: economic collapse !

  Americans MUST unite and stand together for ONE common mission if for nothing else: To take back OUR country, OUR jobs, OUR bank accounts, OUR homes, OUR currency and OUR youth's american rights and seal OUR borders to keep their drug trafficking out! FDA is a joke!

 Please write your rep a letter or e-mail and demand accountability! We can have bigger tea parties people!!!!

                    Thank you and peace whereever you are and FIGHT for what is RIGHT! never, ever give up!!

Instead of new jobs, we got unprecedented CEO salaries/benefits, stagnant wages, the impoverishment of the working class. And billions of tax dollars have been used to move jobs to foreign countries, further harming the economy and the American people.

The solution is to simply reverse this. Restore taxation of the rich/corporations, dare to put conditions on any taxpayer dollars they enjoy, and rebuild our workforce via easily available education, job skills training and health care. We had a world class workforce, but it has dramatically deteriorated since 1980, due to a range of policies (cutting aid to schools, ending poverty reduction programs, letting college tuitions to soar beyond what anyone but the rich can afford, etc.) Our workforce can no longer compete internationally. So -- go back to doing what actually DID work. Invest in the people.


Investing in corporations didn't work. It';s time to invest in the American people

 This article written by DH on care2 is the absolute TRUTH!! don't forget the drugs in america and their prison slave system and the North American Union, Rockerfeller wants the internet shut down!!!
