three hundred thousand west Virginians have been warned not to drink, touch, or smell the water coming out of their pipes. And the company that gave these citizens this special liberty water is aptly named “freedom industries” oh the irony.
That's right, if you are a citizen of west Virginia, hopefully you didn't drink that freedom flavored H20 before the warnings came out.
Who the fuck is gonna clean up this mess? Who is going to pay for this monumental fuckup? Is it going to be the invisible hand of the free market?
If West in texas is any gauge, we won't see anything come of this. But lets not forget that unpaid volunteer firefighters died because of corporate malfeasance in texas. Now we are talking about drinking water for scores of people, is anyone going to ask why “freedom industries” was able to use the commons for free, and why they were able to poison the environment at will- who will bear those costs?
Industry has the freedom to poison and kill at will. Liberty means killing the EPA, fuck yeah. USA USA!
Hundreds report symptoms after West Virginia chemical spill.
I read about this late last night, but it seems the situation is worse than they let on at first, and it will get much worse. I feel horrible for these people, how many of them will turn out to be poisoned- how many children?
