What we need here are not government regulations, but free market solutions.  If there were no EPA, consumers would simply choose another supplier for their coal foaming agent needs.  Now, because of onerous regulations, Freedom Industries might pay a fine.  An eagle is crying - possibly because of coal foaming agent in its eyes.  This is on you libs.

d23: Most of the West Virginia citizenry continue to felate the big coal machine.


In a smelter town next door to my home town (not anywhere near WV), the state was testing school kids for lead, since, you know, smelter. Sure enough, the kids had lead. So did their lawns. So, naturally, the kids' parents did what any responsible parent would do: they made the state quit testing their kids. Problem solved.

No kidding. That was probably the most generic and least heartfelt apology I've heard in quite a while.

Freedom Industries: "Look its been a long day for me and I'd like to wrap this up"
WCHS reporter: "It's been a long day for us too and we have a lot of questions"

Then, have him eat one of the fish from the river:

Mrbogey: optikeye: But the libertarian's say the free market will take care of this kind of thing because people won't buy Freedom Industries product now.

In the libertarian world the aggrieved would demand recompense for the damage done to them. If they can turn a profit while still paying people they keep hurting then they'll stay around. However, it's never a good business model to throw money away just because you're careless. Unless a company gets some kind of subsidy because they're too big to fail, they'll either have to stop leaking chemicals or go out of business.


Now does all this happen before or after the Dance of Liberty around the community garbage fire? And when demanding recompense does the defendant have to be wearing the Speaking Coonskin Hat or is open discourse encouraged?

Hobodeluxe: Oh no. In libertarian paradise there is no such legal term for tort. it's every man for himself. the public would have to exact their revenge with guns ,pitchforks and torches.


Any time you talk to a libertarian and you ask them questions about how their system would deal with various real world situations, eventually they end up describing a system essentially the same as what we currently have in the United States.

At least Freedom Industries owned up, accepted the blame, and did something about it. Unlike Obama, who has yet to apologize for ordering the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi, ordering the IRS to spy on Americans, and ordering Solyndra to take a $500-billion government handout, knowing they would go out of business.

organizmx: I'm sure plenty of West Virginians would rather die from drinking contaminated water than have a government agency like the EPA getting all involved in their lives to clean it up.

/another red state racing to the bottom


And what makes you think that?

Have you ever been to West Virginia?

Beautiful place, nice people, horribly poor for the most part.

I wouldn't say they're all as crazy or dumb as you may think.  Some of them may be worse.

WTF Indeed: It's West Virginia, no one should feel bad for West Virginia.


Part of me wants to agree, but then most of the residents are doing their best to keep a job and a home.   They are likely contagiously stupid, but at least it is contained and less likely to spread.

Mike_1962: a particular individual: If Freedom Industries didn't pollute the water, some other company would. You can't legislate responsibility. None of the Marxists complaining about this see the irony that they're using computers/iPads/smart phones which would be impossible without oil. All you worshipers of Al Gore just want to make the rest of us live in caves and outlaw the internal combustion engine while Al Gore's carbon footprint stamps on a human face--forever.

Go live in Love Canal...
