Persuasive Essay Topics of Today and Yesterday: Southern California Loves OIL Better than OJ

Persuasive Essay Topics of Today and Yesterday is living proof that there really is nothing new under the sun. Let's take a quick peek into the life and times of some early oil activists who profanely petition shamefaced oil rig guys.

The World of the Now

One fine day, along about the month of April in 2010 an oil rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico. Outside the small group of survivors, the family members of theirs, and the 11 who went down with the rig, and a handful of folks with British Petroleum, not many people thought much about it, including the President of the United States of America. In the weeks since, Obama has proven in every way that he's no hell fighter, and John Wayne was nowhere to be found.

 

The World of the Then

Historical material from the monstrously defunct Los Angeles Herald. Artfully rewritten, keeping the essential essence. October 29, 1905 Staff Writer

CITIZENS PROTEST AGAINST OIL RIGS SECOND WARD RESIDENTS ARE AROUSED

Strongly Worded Petition Prepared by Indignant Property Holders Will Be Presented to the Council Monday Alleging that a number of oil rigs are running without any permit whatever, and that some of the buildings used as oil refineries were erected without the sanction. The building superintendent, residents and property owners of a portion of the Second ward will petition the council Monday to remove these rigs from the district and revoke the licenses of all that are operating under a permit.

The petition is couched in language that is as strong as it could well be without shocking members of the council, and the names that are applied to the rigs verge as closely on the profane as could be used in a public document. But the residents of the locality afflicted with what they term these of offensive, inflammable, dangerous, horrible, dirty nuisances, believe they have plenty of cause for their strong language.

The district which presents the petition is confined by Douglas and Colton streets and Bellevue and Beaudry avenues.

Cites Two Specific Cases...

The petition states that more than seventy-five per cent of the oil wells and oil pumping plants within this district have been abandoned, and those that still are being worked are profitless and cites two instances in which violations of ordinances are alleged..."An oil heating and treating plant for which, to the best of our knowledge and belief, no permit has ever been granted, in it's nature offensive in odor and inflammable, dangerous, horrible, dirty and belonging, if anywhere within the limits of our city, only to the oil refining district; certainly not adjoining the homes of the residents in the district referred to." A corral for the carrying on of oil hauling and jobbing business, which, we believe, violates every city ordinance regulating contractors, barns, corrals, keeping of animals, hay, manure, the running of oil refineries into sewers, etc. "This portion of the Second ward believes that it has a promising future as a residence district if these annoyances can be abated.

These are:
"An oil heating and treating plant for which, to the best of our knowledge and belief, no permit has ever been granted, in it's nature offensive in odor and inflammable, dangerous, horrible, dirty and belonging, if anywhere within the limits of our city, only to the oil refining district; certainly not adjoining the homes of the residents in the district referred to.

"A corral for the carrying on of oil hauling and jobbing business, which, we believe, violates every city ordinance regulating contractors, barns, corrals, keeping of animals, hay, manure, the running of oil refineries into sewers, etc."
