If that was serious, you're probably one of those who would blame him for your own flatulance. Get outside of yourself...there are human beings suffering right now and it has NOTHING to do with politics. Shame on you!

I believe George was on his knees praying---Lord maybe we need some more damage, Winds ,floods or Quakes---what ever it takes to wake the people up in America. To get Right or get Left-behind. This could be True? Yes, Lord have Mercy on America--don"t let the Liberals run this land.

Bet there would be better safety measures in USA mines if the owners of these companies/mines had their family & friends lives on the line.

Hey Dunkin... Just what kind of mining safety equipment would you propose to withstand an eartquake in an underground mine shaft? Sometimes one must think before being prepared to blame owners for something like this. I think these kind of accidents are called "act of God". Stick with positive thoughts on their behalf rather than looking for someone to blame just yet.

I wonder how long we can keep digging holes in the earth and removing the minerals before the Earth starts collapsing in on itself. Oh wait. That is already happening...sink holes.

that's not cool either.

it doesn't matter what religion a person believes in, if you were honestly a good person, your (hopefully) good thoughts would be for a good outcome.

just because it's in utah doesn't mean that everyone is mormon.
