Behold the power of the neutered regulatory state

Oh the oppression of regulations industries are forced to endure in their determination to make a buck.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration most recently inspected the Texas fertilizer plant that exploded Wednesday night in 1985.
Thanks to a prolonged and sustain policy of not providing the funding necessary to hire inspectors or do inspections the United States is now officially Bhopalesque.'

no regulation or regulatory teeth. all in the name of making a buck.

it's past time we stand as people and make it clear to the gov that we've had enough of being devalued. a school. a nursing home. and a daily threat of stupidity driven death.

texas. it's an outlaw state.

Authorities in West, Texas are focused on the search for survivors rather than any criminal activity which may or may not have occurred.

A dozen dead, a town ruined, nothing to see here, move on, folks (clap, clap, clap, clap) Deep In The Heart Of Texas.
