The Chinese are keeping many people in the Appalachian coal fields at work.

Strange world. Communist China is paying the salaries of American coal miners, haulers, barge company workers, dock workers, and tens of thousands of other American workers. American environmentalists in California, on the other hand, want to put those American workers out of their jobs.

I agree with your feelings toward these POS liberals.
But understand that we are all not like that here in California.

Like all other human beings, the modern liberal reveals his true character, including his madness, in what he values and devalues, in what he articulates with passion. Of special interest, however, are the many values about which the modern liberal mind is not passionate: his agenda does not insist that the individual is the ultimate economic, social and political unit; it does not idealize individual liberty and the structure of law and order essential to it; it does not defend the basic rights of property and contract; it does not aspire to ideals of authentic autonomy and mutuality; it does not preach an ethic of self-reliance and self-determination; it does not praise courage, forbearance or resilience; it does not celebrate the ethics of consent or the blessings of voluntary cooperation. It does not advocate moral rectitude or understand the critical role of morality in human relating. The liberal agenda does not comprehend an identity of competence, appreciate its importance, or analyze the developmental conditions and social institutions that promote its achievement. The liberal agenda does not understand or recognize personal sovereignty or impose strict limits on coercion by the state. It does not celebrate the genuine altruism of private charity. It does not learn history's lessons on the evils of collectivism.

What the liberal mind is passionate about is a world filled with pity, sorrow, neediness, misfortune, poverty, suspicion, mistrust, anger, exploitation, discrimination, victimization, alienation and injustice. Those who occupy this world are "workers," "minorities," "the little guy," "women," and the "unemployed." They are poor, weak, sick, wronged, cheated, oppressed, disenfranchised, exploited and victimized. They bear no responsibility for their problems. None of their agonies are attributable to faults or failings of their own: not to poor choices, bad habits, faulty judgment, wishful thinking, lack of ambition, low frustration tolerance, mental illness or defects in character. None of the victims' plight is caused by failure to plan for the future or learn from experience. Instead, the "root causes" of all this pain lie in faulty social conditions: poverty, disease, war, ignorance, unemployment, racial prejudice, ethnic and gender discrimination, modern technology, capitalism, globalization and imperialism. In the radical liberal mind, this suffering is inflicted on the innocent by various predators and persecutors: "Big Business," "Big Corporations," "greedy capitalists," U.S. Imperialists," "the oppressors," "the rich," "the wealthy," "the powerful" and "the selfish."

The liberal cure for this endless malaise is a very large authoritarian government that regulates and manages society through a cradle to grave agenda of redistributive caretaking. It is a government everywhere doing everything for everyone.
The liberal motto is "In Government We Trust."

Radioactive Oil

The twin disclosures highlight a growing problem from North Dakota's booming oil development illegal disposal of oil filter socks, which are tubular nets that strain liquids during the oil production process and contain low amounts of radioactive material.

Health officials have said that radioactive filter socks increasingly are being found along roadsides, in abandoned buildings or in commercial trash bins sometimes those of competing oil companies.

A certain amount of nuclear powered oil production.

Figured that out already, Billy Bob, by your unprovoked crack in post #7948. But oh boo-hoo does it hurt. It's emotionally devastating to be so horribly disliked by a toothless Kentucky hillbilly who probably never made it past the eighth grade.

Thanks.

I've been told that there are really 2 Californias. One is LA-Santa Barbara-San Francisco and the other is all the rest.

I'm not altogether certain that burning coal is not causing climate change. But why should the U.S.A. cut back on the cheapest, most reliable source of energy that we have when China, India, and a huge group of developing nations do not and will not? All we will do is put ourselves at an economic disadvantage to them.

Bit of advice for the Libfucktard who likes to make toothless jokes about Kentuckians, too. I don't advise him coming here and doing it face to face with anybody. He will most likely end up picking his own teeth up off the pavement.

If you came here and made your anti-California cracks, I guess you'd have to pick something else up off the pavement. I actually had nothing against Kentuckians until one of you decided to attack us with sweeping generalizations. If you can't take it, don't dish it out. It just isn't that difficult.
