If Al-Quaeda had done it, we would have already attacked Iran. When a CORPORATION does it,m it's just an unavoidable part of our greatest religion, "CAPITALISM&quo t;, to be cleaned up by taxpayers then forgotten. I say "Never forgive, never forget."

All the recent derailments in the United States are more evidence of our crumbling infrastructure and lack of needed maintenance on rails and everything else. We have millions of unemployed people, billions of dollars sequestered in the bloated bank accounts of the super rich, and lots of work that needs to be done. Unfortunately, those rich people control the government, and they are going to make sure they never have to pay their share of the taxes. That means no money will be available for maintenance, and this situation can only get worse and worse as time goes on.

Hey all ya! The dump is open for busines! USA needs jobs so bring your toxins & we will inject in the ground & call it Frak jobs! Or we will simply accidently spill toxins in the water like west virginia after we legally get your corp off the legal hook getting tax payers to foot the clean up bill! Finally we can go old school , & just have the all to common train derailment! Don't worry , about the toxins, USA just see's potential jobs! Can you imagine how low IQ & gullinle the next generation will be! Aaagh!

When you're shipping oil, methanol, and fertilizer between Mississippi and Alabama wouldn't it seem appropriate and certainly not a waste of time and money to inspect the tracks? Being from the magnolia state myself I am grateful they haven't the money or concern about reducing carbon emissions enough to put in cable cars, a monorail, or God forbid, a subway system! The only safe mode of travel there is in a tractor. Great job, y'all! And certainly there's no need to spend more than a day cleaning it up! Duh, that's what topsoil is for!
