This is perfect example of why Hatch should not e in office. And I emphsize NOT. A senate panel said the mine owner know of the dangers uet Hatch came to Murray's defense saying that a full investigation needs to be made before Congress makes a decision. That, to me, soounds like Hathc was taking money under the table for that, along with a lot of other stupid things he has done in the past


Tedd Kennedy says, "This warrants a criminal investigation", because Murray failed to tell federal regulators about dangerous conditions in the mine? It's the federal inspectors and regulator's job to tell Murray about the danger in the mine. That's the whole reason MSHA is there!

I wonder if Kennedy thinks there should be a criminal investigation of the drunk driver who drove off the Chappaquiddick bridge and then went home to sober-up while his passenger died? I wonder if Kennedy withheld any information from the Feds in his case.


Man all you people are something. Every one of you seem to think there is a conspiracy on both sides and in the middle. If no one is capable of being honest in their efforts to do right then we are really in trouble. There are for sure the "bad eggs" but most people are just trying to make a living and make a difference for good in the world. If we should forgive Kennedy should we not forgive Murray? If every report that comes out is biased if it doesn't agree with the one Kennedy put out, I guess we should just let the politicians decide all the details and technical understanding and forget the experts in the field. To wait to hear all the reports seems very realistic to me and responsible. In fact to jump to conclusions before that would be irresponsible.
By the way if we go nuclear? where to you put the spent rods and other waste? In Utah??? oh not here for sure. Is nuclear without risk? Churnoble comes to mind.
Unintended consequences seem to happen all the time. Plan as we will, life is a risk


As in 1854 at the Eureka Stokade - you just can't trust a boss and you never should
