Have they filed for bankruptcy yet?

Don't worry, the free market will fix this.

Maybe all that coal will filter the water, right, RIGHT?

The market will speak. This river will take its business elsewhere.

Maybe they should, you know, not spill shiat!

Pipelines rupture, a good reason to build the Keystone XL line, think of all that free oil we could pick up where it ruptures.

In Russia?

Isn't "thing happened that happened last time" the definition of "repeat"?
 
2014-02-11 02:54:00 PM
Before you libs go and impugn the coal slurry job creators, you better sit back and think about what you'd do without all that coal slurry does for you.  You'll be sorry when these hard working coal slurry job creators GO GALT and then there is no place for you to get coal slurry.  Didn't think about that, did you?

It would if there was a little incentive called hanging the execs of the company that makes a spill.  The next batch of execs won't cut corners.

Coal. It keeps the water off.

Let's just hope the regulators don't let a good crisis go to waste.

FTA: "The team found that existing policies and procedures are not effective in reducing or preventing blackwater spills," said the OSM report, issued in October 2009.

Corporations are people.

No I was told oil pipelines never rupture and are 100% safe.  Of course this was told to me by the same people who told me that tax cuts trickle down, so take it for what it's worth.
 
2014-02-11 02:59:50 PM
That's it.  We need to take away white people guns again.

I like coal slurry poured on my flapjacks, stirred into my coffee, and fried to a golden brown in a skillet. Coal slurry: it's what's for breakfast!

Remember, according to Ted Cruz we need to invest in more coal production and reduce regulations on the coal industry.

The follow ups will read something like...

Exxon oil spill town 'deserted land', residents still getting sick, forced to abandon homes

Former Mayflower resident Ann Jarrell said she "tried to stay here for as much as I could," but every time it rained, oil vapor would return. Like many other locals, she started having constant headaches and coughing after the spill, she said.

"I have friends who still live here. They don't have a place to go. They have small children... and they're all sick," she told RT.

Don't worry guys, Homeland Security says it's a a big bunch of "nothing"...

Jimmy Gianato, director of the MAPS Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management, said he didn't have a lot of details on the incident, but was under the impression it wasn't that serious.
"I don't think there's really anything to it," Gianato said. "It turned out to be much of nothing."

Jesus Incoporated.
Entire business plan based on extracting money from people to buy forgiveness from Jesus Inc. That way in press conferences, industry titans, executives, CEOs and other people who are rich can say with a sincere glint in their eye "Jesus has forgiven me."

And now Jesus Incoporated serves smaller clients too! For a low subscription price, you too can claim Jesus' forgiveness as often as is required.

I wouldn't worry. The free market will crush Exxon any day now, and then all of Ms. Jarrell's problems will be solved.

Genetically engineer aquatic pets to live off coal slurry so when the local wildlife dies off, you can be rest assured the pets you flushed will flourish and clean the rivers for us.

I prefer this kind of energy biproduct disaster to, say, 100 nuclear reactors simultaneously having meltdowns and releasing radiation into our air and water.  So really, we've lucked out here and everything's OK.

And discourage other job creators from job creating?

I found this disturbing.

You want to feel bad for West Virginia but they are like the dude who owns 200 poisonous snakes and spiders and then gets killed by one. Coincidentally this guy would also be living in West Virginia.

Today its a much of nothing, but I bet in a week they will admit that its actually a nothing much. Slurryghazi!

Of course. Coal is mostly carbon, and so is the activated charcoal that they use in water filters.

West Virginia is just jealous that North Carolina temporarily stole it's spotlight.

Just for kicks I checked Wiki on this. it appears that WV isn't so lucky with these types of disasters.
In '72 there was a massive disaster which was defined as an Act of God.
Holy sh*t!

The good Lord has created a giant Britta filter for WV. They should be thankful.

Buffalo Creek. My grandfather helped with the clean-up after that. 125 people were killed. Glad I got out of WV as soon as I could. Although, now I'm in NJ, so...

You guys can laugh, but the reality is that there's a bunch of jobs being created in the hazardous waste cleanup industry.  Business is booming!  And oozing.

The fact that nothing has been burned down yet shows how whipped we are as a people.

Huh, last time it was Freedom Industries, this time it's Patriot Coal.  Go USA.  Pretty soon WV is going to be one big toxic waste dump.  Which is too bad because most of the state has some really beautiful scenery.
 
2014-02-11 03:29:17 PM
It's OK.
White conservatives don't like any government regulation.
It only restricts businesses and prevents jobs!
Also, "pollution" is liberal propaganda.
Obummer hates coal.
