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?

To be fair, all that "trickle down" theory didn't say money.

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.

Good god. Who the hell would want to live or work in view of that grotesque, tree-lined canyon when they could be next to that gorgeously strip-mined pit?

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.

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!


Ghey marriage is obviously to blame.

Corporations are people.

And people make mistakes, which is why we need Jesus.


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.

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.

LarryDan43: Smeggy Smurf: Chalji: Don't worry, the free market will fix this.

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.

And discourage other job creators from job creating?


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.

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.


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

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!
