    up to the fact that voting for morons like Rick Perry is what gets them killed and injured in the first place.  you woulnd't need a pay-out if Rick Perry helped create a government that was doing its job.

    The elevation of appearance over substance, of celebrity over character, of short term gains over lasting achievement displays a poverty of ambition. It distracts you from what's truly important. - Barack Obama

    •  To repeat from above: (0+ / 0-)
      Just to be clear:
      you would punish the victims in West to "punish" Rick Perry?  Who would really suffer by such retaliatory delay?
      This is a "wake-up" correction to get people in West, or the whole state of Texas, to change their voting behavior?  "The punishments will cease when morale improves"?

      I invite, nay implore you to please re-think what you wrote, several of you.  Even if the owner and insurers are found responsible and must pay, how will that help the town in the meantime?  How long until here is a payout?  The water system is broken TODAY, half the town is a blast site, and you want to impose delay to teach... who?... a lesson?
