I'm glad our elected officials are always so busy giving the EPA a hard time. Otherwise they might have had too much free time and might have inspected Freedumb Industries and might have made them fix the tank and that would cut into their profits, God forbid. One thing we sure must avoid is useless, expensive inspections. We can trust industry to look out for us. Now where can I get a little clean water?
How does WesBanco justify being closed 'due to the water crisis' when other banks are open as well as retailers? We have a right to get to our money and conduct transactions. I thought it was illegal for banks to close their doors arbitrarily.
No company is responsible for the chemical spill. Some individual(s) are. Find these persons and hold them accountable, not the entire company. Someone didn't perform their job duties correctly.
It seems like all the right-wingers have conveniently forgotten the absolute disaster of the eight years (or was it an eternity?) of the George W. Bush presidency. Bush failed to protect us, got us involved in two unwinnable wars, and aided in the Wall Street robbery of our economy, while he smirked like the damn fool he was.
Did the global warming skeptics hear about the heat wave in the Southern Hemisphere? Global means the whole earth, not just the small part of it that is southern West Virginia or the eastern U.S.
Is almighty coal causing another Bhopal in West Virginia?
To all you anti-government people out there, just look at this water situation. Business hurt thousands, including other businesses, now government is trying to pull us out of this situation, and of course the cost is born by government, which is really all of us. Once again we all are paying for a business problem.
West Virginia American Water has given the impression that they are paralyzed and incompetent.
I don't attend church on a regular basis. I am not allowing the devil to rule my life. I lead a better Christian life than a lot of the hypocrites who go to church.
With the recent episode with the chemical leak into the major water supply, I am reminded of the comic strip "Pogo" of years gone by. We need not waste time on concerns about terrorists' activities and attacks. Pogo stated: "We Have Met the Enemy and He Is Us."
We love how state government workers are treated in an emergency; twenty cases of water were delivered to the sixth floor of 112 California Ave. However, it seems that none of the water ever reached employees on the lower floors. No hand sanitizer provided either when you can't wash your hands in the bathroom.
The situation with the Department of Agriculture and Democratic career politician Gus Douglass pretty much sums up what has been wrong with this state for over 80 years.
The endlessly polluting chemical and coal industries have now poisoned the water in Charleston. Why don't our governments protect us? Does anyone think there is too much oversight of industry by that communistic, overreaching, Obama tool EPA? This chemical spill shows that the problem is with greedy chemical and coal industries willing to put our welfare at risk.
