last throes, turning the corner....
We lost more people in the mine disaster in our own country were we are supposed to have Safety programs and etc in place. While I greive for the soldiers, they knew they might risk their life. The miners didn't.
Thank God and our Armed Forces for The Bombs are not falling here in our front yard!
Because mining is just as safe as going to the grocery store. Let me tell you how many times my canary has saved me from some 300LB. Wise Countian sitting on me and crushing my air supply because she wanted her pork rinds and I was in the way.
condoleesa The miners didn't know they were at risk? Come on you go down 1,000s of feet? That is a very high risk job! There have been 1,000's that have lost their lives in the us doing that job over the yrs. Health reason etc...I would think I was safer in a war than going down a mine shaft.
Should we stop mining then? Why lose American lives?
It's called greed
Unfortunately we will have to go back to mining coal more and more. The retarded decision to build primarily natural gas-fired power plants is going to bite us in the ass. Natural gas production is in permanent decline in the US. And the fear of OMG ATOMS!!! precludes the construction of the vastly superior and cleaner (yes, out of all power-production methods) nuclear power plants.Coal can be clean(er) than it has been. We've made our bed, it is time to lay in it. Get ready for more Loretta Lynn coal songs.
Everyone with average intelligence or above knows that the war againt terror will not end, the theater will change, but they will always be there.
The insurgency will continue as long as the US had troops in the Middle East, supports Israel and depends on oil from that region. That means - forever. The question is, how long will we continue to sacrifice our troops in defense of oil supplies? By the way, our great success in Afghanistan has insured a plentiful supply of heroin from that country. And we continue to protect those who produce it. Kinda stupid, isn't it?
