  •  Smoky Joe Barton Territory (6+ / 0-)

    While my heart goes out to those injured and to the families of those killed, I am not a bit surprised this horrific explosion occurred.  

    This is Smoky Joe Barton territory.  Smoky Joe is well-known in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, mainly because the huge cement plants in Midlothian, a town midway between Waco and the DFW area, spew tons and tons of particulate matter into the air, resulting in the area's reputation for one of the worst places for asthmatics in America.  

    Smoky Joe Barton is a well-known "crony capitalist" U.S. Representative, and he knows damned well that the mess he allows in his district is having unhealthy consequences for millions of people.  

    The only word Smoky Joe Barton knows is "money".  

    If you go to Smoky Joe Barton's Facebook page, you'll see Smoky Joe himself looking somber and serious as he investigates the disaster.  

    Smoky Joe Barton should be investigated.
