Hypocritical Asshole Headline of the Day

Cruz called Sandy aid ‘pork’ but wants ‘all available resources’ after Texas blast

And I can't help but wonder (having worked in the petrochemical industry) how much of that accident resulted from regulations being made weaker or more lax to help "business"?

The wingnuts will no doubt blame it on too much regulation by Obama.

BTW, I worked in the Standard Oil Refinery in El Segundo 45 years ago. Those are dangerous workplaces.

Yes, they are! Glad you made it out in one piece! (I was visiting a chemical plant in Lima, Ohio, about 12 years ago, and I'm getting a plant tour, when we pass a chainlink fence that had radiation warning signs--the black and yellow triangles--all around it. I ask my guide what's up with that; he says it's been cleaned up and that will be the new company parking lot. I just smiled and quick-walked the heck away from it.)
Have a great weekend,

No tribute to Texas! (from NJ)

Oh wait, yes, we can help them, NJ is not Douche Country, like Texas is.
