14 dead in Waco. How many folks will go to jail?

More than 3x the recent Boston Bomber Brothers death toll. How many will pay for cash over safety? What's your guess?

1. I heard on the radio that the police have determined that no criminal act was involved

That probably means they couldn't find a Mexican to blame it on and they sure as shit weren't gonna blame it on the negligence of the asshole that thumbed his nose at worker safety.

3. Sorry babe the story just isn't sexy

4. This is crazy, but here it is

On at least two Utubers pages are vids of the explosions.

What's crazy is that during the fire, but just before the explosions, one can see a fireball racing toward the fire. Yes, a fireball in the air that is moving back into where the fire is. Some say it was a meteorite. Some say it is unburned gas catching fire and burning back towards the ground fire.

Whatever it was, it is what caused the explosion. Or so they say....

5. The last 2 Governors of Texas were W and Rick Perry. Make them pay at the voting booth.

 

Vote Perry out.
Don't vote Jeb Bush in.

6. It just goes to show

how profit and terror are opposite poles of the same thing, essentially.

While that may sound ludicrous, you just have to think it through in a larger sense.

The rule of thumb in the US is: If it is profitable but deadly or harmful it is not terrorism. If it is not profitable and deadly or harmful it may be terrorism.

The war on terror is a war on a word, i.e., a useful abstraction that can be defined as needed and applied when necessary. No mention is made of the impact of the relationship of foreign economic/military policies that might insight retribution and anger.

Yet, terrorism is directly related to profit because, and you just have to check it out by researching it, it assures that huge amounts of money are spent on defense of said, from the military to its contractors and suppliers.

They could do a commercial with smiles winks and thumbs-up about how terror has replace the cold war as a money maker for defense/offense and the MIC. Wink! Thank you terror for billions in our pockets and plenty of jobs in our industries! Keep it going.

Seeking profit continues the cycle. Rinse and repeat.

Profit = good under any circumstance from pollution to work conditions to exploitation, etc., etc.

Terror = bad, except in the sense that it is a result of profit and also a means to create it.

7. I don't give a damn who goes to jail or how many.

The problem is that whether anyone goes to jail or not... is the problem going to be fixed? I mean the industrial/corporate/congressional problem. Jail means nada. Punishment means nada. The power mongers in congress and industry... that's the problem.

11. Yeah, I just Google mapped it, and West is 19 or 20 miles north of Waco.

Close, but not exactly the same. Waco is probably The Big City for people from West.
