sdd2000: Pipelines rupture, a good reason to build the Keystone XL line, think of all that free oil we could pick up where it ruptures.
Chalji: Don't worry, the free market will fix this.
Mikey1969: 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."
Zeb Hesselgresser: Chalji: Don't worry, the free market will fix this.Give it a shot, look what 13 straight years of Democrat Governors got them.
Vodka Zombie: Thankfully, they don't need any regulating or oversight. If they do something wrong, the free market will simply take care of things. If the water is toxic, people will simply stop buying that water and buy other water. If the air is toxic, buy different air.Personally, West Virginia deserves this opportunity to pull themselves up by their bootstraps.
The_Hairy_Gooch: Status quo for WV now-a-days. Nothing is going to change either. That industry is wayyyyyy too entrenched to go anywhere. You would think things like this would piss the normal townsfolk off enough to vote in better environmental regulat.... hahaha yeah I couldn't even finish that sentence, I mean who are we kidding here. Funny how history constantly repeats itself when you don't change anything.
Begoggle: 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.
August11: 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.
The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves: When the coal companies are done, West Virginia will look like a mix of Haiti and the surface of the moon.
rev. dave: rzrwiresunrise: I don't think any of you farkproglibtards get the concept of property rights.Well sure we do. You spoil the environment, then lose your property as payment.
Cold_Sassy: 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.
doyner: August11: 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.And people make mistakes, which is why we need Jesus.
Rapmaster2000: 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?
