Difference of Opinion
God bless, America! I'm so glad we can freely express our opinions. We are very fortunate to be able to exchange differing ideas--even with those who express their opinions and thoughts with vitriolic gusto!
- 12 miners died in a West Virginia coal mine explosion. How unfortunate. We extend prayers and condolences to the families and friends of those workers who died.
- There is one survivor who remains hospitalized. We pray for his recovery.
- We are grateful for the work done by the rescue teams who were dispatched to attempt to save the mine workers.
- Some "always-right-wing" bloggers are predicting that President Bush will be blamed for this disasterous event. Let's not jump to hasty conclusions with this kind of pre-emptive attempt at spinning responsibility for regulations which protect workers. I guess the reduction in the number of Mine Safety Agency inspectors over the past five years isn't the fault of a Republican president or Republican congress. Oh, well if the shoe fits....
