Would we let terrorists poison our water, if they promised jobs?


Great, potent question.

What do you think?

And, where did that photo come from?

Protester in West Virginia:  "Would we let terrorists poison our water supply, if they said it created jobs?"  Photographer unidentified; so is protester.

Keep your eye on West Virginia.

Here’s why:  Do you know what factories may lie upstream from your drinking water, and do you know how they are regulated?  Is the regulation done well?

    Black Flag is not dead, James. Not sure he’s much alive, but I did get a response from him at his blog: https://freedomfliesblackflag.wordpress.com/2011/11/22/bizarro-world-censorship-and-cowards/#comment-798

    Is our friend Black Flag even alive any more? I find no evidence of activity for several months.

    Do you like living in your own little fantasy world, BF? Do you honestly think pollution wouldn’t exist if there was no regulations against it? And do you honestly think there would be a way to stop polluters if there was no regulations?

    To be blunt, BF, quit smoking whatever drug you’re smoking and come back to the real world.

    And corporations aren’t terrorists? Really?

    If ISIL managed to poison 100,000 people in a US city, BF, would that not be an act of terrorism?

    So how is it any different when a corporation does?

    Indeed. That’s what prompted my search for this photo (previous search attempts had come up short). It’s hard for me to comprehend anyone not prioritizing water when we cannot exist without it. It seems like greed is the type of disease that makes you as irrational as a drug addict.

    Thanks for the details on the photo. Especially relevant today, with the Michigan disaster.

    That’s actually me in the photo. It was the “Forward on Climate” march in DC.

    I wanted to address how hypocritical it is for us to fight to protect our citizens from outside threats, while we are so willing to risk being poisoned if money is involved. I’ve heard some call it self-colonization; we’ve no where left to exploit so we’re doing it in our own back yards, sometimes literally.

    I was heavily involved in the antifracking movement in NY where we, successfully, banned fracking after many years of protest.

    Riighht!
    Typical mindless nonsense.

    As if industry are terrorists…..

    Remember, Ed, pollution exists because it is regulated.

    The regulations do not stop pollution, it is created to allow it and prevent YOU from doing a darn thing should it poison you.
