Congratulations, West Virginia!

We've all heard the news the last few days, out of West Virginia:

West Virginia chemical spill frustrates residents for fourth day

And what else can you say to the people of that state except a hearty congratulations?

Congratulations for voting against your own, best, self interests. Congratulations for voting Republican. Congratulations for voting for "small government" that doesn't regulate---oh, I don't know---chemical companies?

Now, could lessons be learned?  Would you join us over here on the side of sanity and reason and good sense?


For your sake and ours, both?

The last time this site was inspected was in 1991! The business leaders rail against regulations claiming that they take away jobs. West Virginia has a long, sad history of being raped by industry with very little given back.

The sad truth is that most people voted for Romney, because Obama was black. Heard at a local gas station during the '08 primary, "Well, are you voting for the nigger, or the bitch."
