Another FOX brainwash session

They're reporting the mine collapse in China as being a failure of the Communist economic system, and just not pointing out that it's CAPITALIST deregulation that caused it, just like the mine collapses in New Zealand, Chile, Peru, West Virginia.... and the Deepwater Horizon oil rig in the Gulf Oil spill Massive Petroleum Hemorrhage were caused by the POP principle. Profits Over People. The difference is that in China the Death Penalty applies to murder by Corporation. The CEO of the Chinese mine is likely to become an unwilling organ donor. Don L Blankenship, the Retired CEO of Massey Energy, who created 29 job openings with one (predictable AND predicted) reaction to defiance of existing regulations, will continue to be a multi-millionaire and will continue to donate to Right Wing Causes like, loosening regulations even further... so he can KILL more miners, Oil workers, factory workers, construction workers, farm workers, unlike himself REAL workers, and feast on the proceeds of their life and death. Those who like myself are merely crippled by their policies will be discarded, jailed, treated as psychotics and criminals and, if the plans of Blankenship and his allies, and their political appointees, to buy the entire governance

A thuggish murder of Queen’s English

Christine O'Donnell is being audited on her campaign spending, as well she should. She made a devil's deal, sold the remaining fragments of her soul on a bet that she could become a Congress-critter. The Korporate Kampaign-fund Kartel fronted her undisclosed amounts of bread. But she didn't follow their rules. There's a quotation from Shakespeare, from the funeral of Falstaff "this huge hill of flesh, this breaker of horses backs, ... he was never, yet, a breaker of promises, he will give the devil his due." She's not given the devil his due. Devil says, look, all you have to do is occasionally chant "9-11!" or "Tax and Spend Liberals" and we'll do the rest, for lack-of-gods-sake don't try to write your own speeches or ad lib anything, because you're a moron." Did she listen? No, she did NOT listen. There's another quotation from a drill sergeant, "it's impossible for the ears and the mouth to work at the same time, you're either listening or running your head." 21158

“Clean” Coal on defensive, downplaying REAL Clean power

So they're spending a few hundred million nationwide promoting their bid for MORE unsupervised unregulated Mountaintop Removal Coal (and other minerals) Extraction, with the accompanying subsidies they'll get if WHEN the Tame Departments of Interior, Defense and Energy and the even Tamer Congress grant them the Official Clean Energy Okey-Dokey. They downplay wind and solar as not being viable ("the sun doesn't always shine and the wind doesn't always blow") AND claim that even when they're used they'll "need" to Strip Mine and destroy the environment for the metals. Which is bullshit on several levels, there's far more recyclable metals ready for harvest than can be gotten from any level of mining in the conceivable future. One Industry LIE down the tubes. With Solar and Wind producing their PEAK output at the same times of day that the PEAK demand is, there isn't actually any need to build MORE coal power plants or start new strip mines. AND the production of Wind and Solar is going up even with a tiny fraction of a percentage of the Public Subsidies that the Coal, Oil and Gas industries have enjoyed for more than a century. Almost a century and a half.

Don Blankenship Massey Energy thug

Think these coal goons care about trashing the earth, killing miners, or intimidating jurors? Here's a mob boss doing his own strong-arming: threatens, assaults cameraman. Don Blankenship, he's not just the president, he's a front line thug: "If you're going to start taking pictures of me you're liable to get shot."
