  •  This mountaintop-removing SOB was on Moyer's show (2+ / 0-)

    Tonight on PBS..."Is God Green?"

    They showed a really creepy clip of him from the 80s bragging about how everybody in WVa had better wake up to the fact that unfettered Capitalism is the wave of the future and they'd better embrace it for their own good.

    There must be a special place in Hell for slugs like Blankenship.

    •  Blankenship Reveals His Ignorance (0+ / 0-)

      A dude similar to Blankenship was one Anastasio Somoza, one time caudillo in Nicaragua and the reason the Sandanistas came to power.  He raped his country blind and even stole the relief funds sent to Nicargua to help with reconstruction of Managua after a killer earthquake.  Eventually the revolution threw him out, although he gracefully left the country to "retire" to Paraguay.  He managed to enjoy his idyll for about a year or two before he got sent to his special place in Hell by a bazooka round into his armored limousine.  People who believe in unfettered free market capitalism don't understand the other side of the equation.  No law means no law - even for them.
