There is nothing wrong with the White's. They are just a rough crew. At least they don't go around judging people like you do!

So you wouldn't mind your children and grandchildren showing up in society taking welfare from the government and making thousands on which they pay no tax. With those people they start out pissed off through brainwashing and end up doing the same thing their parents have been doing. From your comment I wonder if you even watched the documentary

I'm 80 years old. The first job my dad ever had was timekeeper on the WPA in 1938. He drew $6 a week for 50 hours. Then he became a shift superintendent for procter and gamble at a shell loading plant in Milan, TN. From there he transferred to Oak Ridge, TN as an inspector/supervisor at K-25....part of the Manhattan project. Before he retired in 1973 he worked his way to a department head in the maintenance division. I went to work for the government in 1952 and worked as a process operator in one of the biggest and most complex plants in the world. The last 25 years I was there I managed one of the biggest main frame computing centers in the world.

My dad had a 10th grade education and I barely finished high school....worked 40 hours a week during the last two years, 60 hours during the summers.

I've never sued anybody, I've never collected a goddam dime I didn't earn and two of my three kids have master's degrees...my son in engineering and his masters came from VPI. When people are useless it shows....they can't hide it.

Campbell, stupid comment as you try to joke. Many people are impacted by this. I dare you to take your godless soul up in the face of faily hurt by this and tell them, "the spill is an improvement"

Repubs like Ryan think "community" can replace the support Gov gives those in need. Comments like yours makes me seriously doubt that fairy tale.

...your dad raised you on a government paycheck.

You may have missed it, but repubs demanded cuts in gov jobs, which PBO has cut drastically after the growth in these jobs under Dubya

An repubs won't allow a jobs package that inculdes infrastructure jobs.

If PBO proposed a Manhattan sized now, you know it would be denied.

So give thanks yours dad had the advantage of having such a large FED GOV JOB so he could bring you up on.......ask how many blacks ("those people") got those jobs like your dad. Count your blessings old man. Stop acting like you you had no advantages over others.

For the current moment there are already dozens of getting sick people reports, 9 counties still sit under state of emergency and more than 100 000 stay out of drinking water.... Bloody hell, and after THIS another smiling representative of another damned energy corporation will come to my door and will waste another period of his life time to assure me that shale gas exploring works in less than 10 miles from my house will hide absolutely no threat neither to me and to a family of mine nor to the ecology around:

"Yeah, indeed frackling technologies use chemicals" - idiots say – "You right, indeed those chemicals may cause cancer but, please, those chemicals are used so deep under that the risk of its appearing in underground waters is as minimum as my penis"...

Monthly those cretins appear at the door of my house and leave there this shit, talking about frackling as if toy terrier is going to pee in my garden...

Murthy's law says: Anything that can go wrong will go wrong. Can just give yourself a second and you imagine it about what disastrous consequences we are to speak if one day chemicals will infect not just a river but the underground water in whole region...

That chemical spill in W.VA must become a lesson! Otherwise national calamity is unavoidable.
