Jan 15, 2014 at 12:57 PMWell, let's see. First, govt cries out that we must make more regulations to 'prevent' disasters and for safety reasons. Then, govt (EPA)regulates we must "clean" coal with a 'chemical'; a very dangerous chemical. Chemical leaks into river. Govt uses excuse this company was 'under the radar' as an appropriate explanation for their utter stupidity and incompetence in 'inspecting' their own stupid regulation; disaster hits WV because of govt (EPA) forcing use of nasty chemical to 'clean' our coal; and here we are.
While Democrats in WV were handing out all that federal money for FBI facility, WVU grants, etc....under RObert Byrd, Rockefeller....and since they all complained forever about regulating and making safe our mines, etc....why did they not in all the decades dems have been running WV, think to maybe put up some type of 'barrier' around the containment containers for these govt insisted clean coal "chemicals?" Govt liberals & EPA self-professed 'experts' promised 'safety first' then the chemical "they" demanded be used, causing the worst environmental disaster in WV waters. This is my 'shocked' face; :O Watch how WV Governor and democrats' EPA start blaming the company. How typical. Govt will take no responsibility for this disaster. Had the mines not had to use 'clean coal' chemical; this would NEVER have even happened. Had GOVT inspectors been doing their job; this would never have happened.
