I was going to blame Bush, but Jesse Jackson beat me to it:

FTFA:Officials say the building was in the process of being demolished when a large portion of its interior came down on its own.

Sounds like they just got a lot of free work done for them.

I heard someone saw a kite crash into the building. All kites have been grounded until further investigations are complete.

I find it ironic that the building was already in the process of being demolished when it collapsed. The problem here is that the people were surprised that it collapsed as they were demolishing it.

Damn the Demoncratic Congress keeps spending insane amounts of money on a war that they have yet to get us out of. It could be better spent giving congress another raise, more tax breaks and bigger tax breaks for the struggling oil companies.

From TFA: "four-story building under construction"
Also FTFA: "in the process of being demolished "

Is this a scam?
I get it ... the building "under construction" never gets finished because it's being demolished at the same time!

[dammit, I made a nice ASCII art of a building being built on one side and the wrecking ball swinging in on the other, but the filter ate it ... just imagine some awesome ASCII art inserted here]

I blame Clinton... no, fark it, I blame Carter.

The crash on 116th a few months ago was way cooler.
 
2007-08-08 04:35:07 PM
This goes deeper. I blame not only the Democratic Party but also the Trial Lawyer Association, Mormons, and the Vivid Video Girls.

i'm going to S Myself TFU on that one. didn't RTFA.

so they were demolishing it and it collapsed unexpectedly.
might be the first time I've EVER seen a construction job move ahead of schedule. The Union's gonna have their overachieving asses for that!

So small buildings fall to the side when collapsing but tall ones straight down?

/logic surrenders
 
2007-08-08 05:22:22 PM
Now the question is could this collapse been prevented?

Dun, Dun, DUNNNNNNNNN!

Why is that always the question? Who the hell cares if it could have been prevented. Lots of things could have been prevented. We don't go around preventing them, usually because the probability of failure times the cost of failure
Why is it that our society is nowadays so focused on removing all traces of risk from daily life? I swear, some people won't stop until we're all walking around in germ-free plastic safety bubbles. Life is risky. Don't try to mitigate it away! Relax and enjoy yourself. A piano could fall on me today as I walk outside. Should I be worried? No.

I blame Bush for that time I started to cook a package of Ramen Noodles and then I realized that larvae began to float on the surface of the boiling water.

That was a dinnertime disaster, and bugs are natural. He could have prevented it somehow I'm sure.

I mean I'm not sure how... but I know he could have.

He probably put that package right there on the shelf on purpose just for me, because he knows I don't like him very much...

Wouldn't put it past him.

Well, Katrina and Rita for starters. The virginia mine disaster isn't technically a " natural disaster " but they blamed that on him too. They've blamed the genocide in the Sudan on Bush, Typhoon's, earthquakes, whatever. Everything is Bush's fault to people without an ounce of sense. BTW, that's one of the qualifiers to become a member of dailykos.com: " are you SURE you have no sense " ??????

I didn't say it, but I read it as a joke the first time... then I went back and read it... and I wasn't really sure how to take it.

I mean, DO the people in congress really care about us or just about themselves? And well, congress is half republican which explains not getting much done. Can we even really just have the war stop all of a sudden anyways?

For some reason suddenly I can't decide what the statement is supposed to mean... aside from "nothing good" and "Doomed! We're doomed!" which I totally agree with.

I'm biatchy and on edge today, sorry!

The only thing I blame on Bush is the Iraq war.

Too bad that's such a monumental farkup it guarantees he'll go down as one of the worst presidents in US history.

meh you can't take a lot of that stuff seriously. I think a lot of the time people are just venting their frustrations and joking. Altho Bush hasn't been as on the ball as many would like him to be. But no way he controls the weather... or well if he does thats a conversation that requires a tinfoil hat and probably has little to do with him directly.

Give journalists a break. Knowing the difference between effect and affect is hard and sometimes you need to use the grammar checker and then sometimes you don't check to see if it corrected it or not.
