Fertilizer Plant Explosion Cover Up in Progress

well maybe not a cover up but it looks like theyre trying to sweep a criminal event that has dozens dead and missing under the rug. the fact the regulators didn't know about 700 plus tons of explosive materials in a residential neighborhood is un-fucking-believable.

now newspapers trying to find out about about the plant's safety and violation records are getting stonewalled by the regulators. the rationale? 'because we said so'

city planning

My favorite part: who gives out building permits for a middle school and high school just a few blocks away from an ammonia nitrate factory? What if this had happened at 8am on a school day?

Conspiracy aside, did 'ya all' see that they requested federal aid to assist the disaster? Recall that the Texas Senators voted against federal relief funding for Hurricane Sandy. Total self serving douchebags.

That was the first thing that I thought of as well. Also Perry had big talk about having nothing to do with Fed Aid and then took it when they had all the fires. Their politics suck right now and Cruz may actually be the king of the assholes.

Hey don't worry he's a rich white guy.... nothing to worry about there. Personally I think they should hang the guy, sterilize all his offspring confiscate all his property and if it's a corporation do the same to all the board members. There's more than enough blame to go around and the blood sucking attornies will wring out every dollar they can from anybody they can. But lets start with they guy who decided to run his buisness without following the rules then go from there.

but GH,Cruz and Rubio are the new breed magnets that will draw Latinos to the Republican party 's ever shrinking base of crusty old white people...like blue collar Mexicans and Centro-Americanos who fled oligarchies are super eager to jump on the band wagon with Tio Tomas free market zealots who would be considered white guys in Latin America
