It's exactly what I was thinking and feeling only in a smaller, dumber, more Hillbilly Taliban sort of way.

9-11 got full lemming consideration and Patriot Act EXPLOITATION! The filthy RIGHT WING is already blaming the "black" in the White House!!

And they vote down Background Checks.

Wake Up!! It's Class War and they are pitching their Zombies at us as fodder!

in response to our waco discussion:

Obviously I can't say why or even if. I do think their is a possibility this secondary event could be just an effort at confusion, disruption, attempt to shake confidence, dominate news cycles.

And of course if it's a planned explosion they may have desired mass casualties.

It's an easy target, ain't it?

(responded here to get the exchange off the worker rights post)

Ok. You think it was an accident or sabotage in Waco.?

Yeah I think the timing leads me to believe someone used the lax safety measures, features, procedures to engineer an easy massive explosion that can later be characterized as "not criminal".

CNN article on Texas Fertilizer Plant Explosion in which:

"Worst-case scenario

In 2006, West Fertilizer had a complaint filed against it for a lingering smell of ammonia, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality website shows.

Separately, the plant had informed the Environmental Protection Agency that it presented no risk of fire or explosion, according to The Dallas Morning News. It did so in an emergency planning report required of facilities that use toxic or hazardous chemicals.

The plant's report to the EPA said even a worst-case scenario wouldn't be that dire: There would be a 10-minute release of ammonia gas that wouldn't kill or injure anyone, the newspaper reported.

What happened Wednesday night was much worse. "

Yes I saw that. I'm not surprised the corp was careless,& dishonest. I guess I'm saying someone who knew that decided to take advantage and nudge them into a massive explosion.

We do not know for sure yet but it is a plausible hypothesis to check into. 'Things happen' but there are also engineering that make them likely to happen, especially in cases where there have been bad omens left unaddressed, silenced, or covered up.

Yes, the three monkeys got it right -- see no evil, hear no evil, and speak no evil.

Because of what the U.S.A. government is doing overseas and here at home, there are a lot of pissed off people running around the world these days. What else does one expect?
