Coal ash is leaking into the water?

So what? A coal company has the right to poison the water. It's called "free enterprise" fer crying out loud.

To regulate or interfere is socialism.
Just ask a conservative.

What the frack!!

It has been scientifically proven that coal ash is a deadly byproduct of coal and should never come in contact with any living tissue. The states that are swamped in coal ash have epidemic proportions of disease and illnesses. In West Virginia, there is so much disease and illness caused by coal and coal ash that you cannot afford health insurance...if you can even get health insurance in the state -- which you cannot.

But, hey, what's to worry?

What the frack!

These politicians and the insane laws passed over the years has stymied the growth of America. We are in trouble with a selfish people and every avenue of reducing the pressure on us is stymied by rights groups for everything! Open up oil! Open up natural gas! Open up coal! Build some new refineries! Gasoline should be a buck a gallon! These crazy azzholes with their causes are destroying us! We can mix environment with common sense energy policies. If they keep opening their mouths while at their self serving parties giving the answers to all of our problems, eliminate them!

Actually my windmill & solar panels pay for my electricity. Most months I actually get a check from ComEd for the excess electricity I sell to them.

Why should gas a "a buck a gallon"?

Why do you oppose the oil/gas companies making a profit?

That's unAmerican.

Support the 10+ million Americans employed in the oil/gas industry, buy $5 gas!!!!!!!!!!

History proves otherwise.

The environment has ALWAYS suffered in the quest for cheap energy, whether that was wood, whale oil, coal, oil, natural gas, nuclear, ethanol, etc.

Considering our past record, what makes you think energy companies are suddenly going to put the environment & humanity above profit?
