    People like you have sold out to the corporate dick. It's been that way so long, you even seem to enjoy it.
    That's the best argument you can come up with?

    The truth is often simple and concise.

    You're saying that one event...in India...defines private sector businesses in The United States? And that event was intentional?

    Without proper governmental regulation, corporations can be dangerous to the public. A properly regulated industry is something else altogether.

    That's not what you said. Now, explain to us how the disaster in India benefitted Union Carbide.

    Btw, for the uninformed, the pipeline itself will be carrying nothing different than all the other existing pipelines. The tar sands are still processed where they are already processed and have been for years.
    So, I understand that the keystone is going to carrying crude waste: how is that good for US?

    Oh hell, look at the explosion in Texas, where the fertilizer plant had way too much anhydrous ammonia onhand and where way too many houses and what-not were built way too close to it. Seriously, you think the corporation didn't know what it had in its tanks?


    That's why we need regulation. Corporations will ALWAYS put the bottom line ahead of safety. Well, almost always. There might be a corporation out there who puts safety first without being regulated; let me know when you find it.

    How did that company benefit from that explosion?
