Our Fine Media

So after midnight, I was watching reports that all but one of the trapped miners have survived. 5:04 a.m. turns out it was a mistake, and all but one have died. The company claims "miscommunication" according to our news station. Miscommunication?
So lets take a guess here- do you think there will be significant coverage about the safety violations of this company? Here's hoping so.

And the War in Iraq didn't actually happen. And Al Gore is president. And George Bush died by drowning in a pool of his own vomit in a Texas drunk tank.

Wish you'd throw some revisionism on the genocide that we do nothing about too while you're at it. Oh don't get me started.
Ah, see: Al Gore was also the intelligent designer! And the internet is a portal through which we can comsume ourselves...

Over at Fire Of Liberty, he talks of the campaign to build a memorial for those who died at the hands of Communism. I'll bet it's not half as much as the people who have died because of Capitalism, where's their memorial?
The media failed to get it right, because they are in a rush to get it first. And any investigations of the safety violations will be used as a distraction from the whole Abramhoff scandal.

Ahh, yet another piece to the puzzle is revealed. Who might be behind this conspiracy? We all know who, they run the stock market, and here is a bigger hint, they run Hollywood also. Got it yet?

Hey! An apologist! How does it feel to be proud of a bunch of criminals? If Dennis Hastert was so sincere about donating his bribe, he would have done it before he was about to get caught. In fact, if he was really really sincere, he wouldn't have taken it in the first place. Only going to prove that those who prattle on about family values are the ones with the least amount of values in their soul.

Thats always my gripe, and people that know me get tired of hearing about it (because boy do they hear about it!) but its tiresome for me as "Ms. Public" to have to watch these irresponsible companies continuously worry about their image and PR instead of lives.
When it was discovered that the protective suits for people in the military to protect them from chemical weapons were defective, did anybody yell? Did anybody put "protect our troops from radiation" magnaets on their SUVs?? No, these people are rewarded by more contracts for a lousy record of service.
Always great to see you Enigma.
