"And it just travels threw Red States."<quoted text>
Funny that you would mention that. The oil company has quite a record after so many official say that it would be perfectly safe. What was noxious about this it was underground and up flowed right in the middle of a nice neighborhood.
They weren't even working on the pipeline when it burst but had just upped the capacity and then "boom!" Oh well, their going to have to pay for this one. But they will still deduct it from their taxes. After they have just had to pay a fine on Tuesday too:
(Reuters)- The U.S. Department of Transportation has fined Exxon Mobil Corp $1.7 million over pipeline safety violations relating to a 2011 oil spill in the Yellowstone River, regulators have said.
Exxon's Silvertip pipeline, which carries 40,000 barrels per day of crude in Montana, leaked about 1,500 barrels of oil into the river in July 2011 after heavy flooding in the area.
Of course you Okies won't complain if it happens here...that's why they put it through your property to affect your land and drinking water. And it just travels threw Red States. They know your good little soldiers! After all that pipeline is shipping their toxic oil to China. BTW just how many temp jobs did Okies get for their pipeline? Haven't heard. But don't worry about the oil company, their still going to make their billions...Spills are just a tax deduction to them...no sweat.
Correction: "And it just travels THROUGH Red States".
*Who regulates the Oil company? Federal Regulators with Federal fines attached to violations. Fines are designated as expenditures according to I.R.S. codes therefore they are by definition a deduction. Hazmat spills are monitored and repaired by federal guidelines and can only be restored/repaired by federally licensed specialist in restoration and handling of hazardous materials.
