    Default Mine Safety Regulations

    New U.S. mine safety rules may bring light to a long, dark tunnel

    For 19 years before W took office, there were no major mine disasters. Under his leadership and direction, mine safety regulations and enforcement were drastically cut. The tragic result of this was 70 untimely deaths: that is, 70 fathers, sons, brothers, and husbands who will never go home from their toils in the mines to see their beloved families again. This is just another example of why we need strong government regulation because companies are unwilling to regulate themselves. Thankfully, President Obama has appointed a new man to clean up these mines and once again make them a safe place to work.

    Lack of border security and immigration enforcement has killed more than 70 people. Who would even waste there time on this subject? I bet there's more illegals killing citizens in a month, probably so much it would dwarf this number. Heck, add in those killed by illegals in accidents as well and yeah...

    BTW, Mining isn't even in the top 10 of deaths caused by occupation.

    If you want to start a thread about how Obama has also increased spending for border security over Bush, go right ahead.

    Default What has happened to our Country???

    Why are so many people on here so cynical about basic human rights. Do you feel that your entitled to a life of luxury while others suffer for your benefit?
    There are regulations already in place,Just enforce them. Why did the government chose not to enforce them? Stop devaluing the safety and health of workers. I bet if it was your loved one you would feel different if they were forced to work and live under unsafe and hazardous conditions. People in Eastern Kentucky don't have the luxury of finding other jobs. Mining or related jobs are all thats available.
    All employees are entitled to a fair day wages for a fair day of work in safe working conditions as possible.
    We better learn a lesson from Egypt, it could happen here.

    There is no question that we in the US are over-regulated...but that does not mean to "Throw the baby out with the bath water".....We need to cut regulations that hurt biz, while not eliminating necessary protections for worker (Or customer) safety. There needs to be a balance...who the heck wants regulations that strangle biz, yet don't return any real benefit? On the other hand, workers definitely need to have safety provided...A difficult balancing act.

    Mining is an inherently dangerous job, there's no way around that. That's not to say safety shouldn't be high on the list. But the "regulation" has gotten so bad in this country that it has virtually paralyzed many industries.

    19 years of no accidents? So Clinton slacked his 8 years (before Bush) and it happened on Bush's watch. Just like 911. It was Clinton's fault....

    Anyway, back to your scheduled liberal brain washed diatribe.

    And watch the cost go up exponentially because you are moving numerous times the material.

    Absolutely! While they were skipping school and getting high by whatever means available, not working and on the government dole, while some of us sacrificed the good times to get an education and develop a career. You bet cha we deserve it. Fock your sob story and PC. They had the opportunity if they wanted to work for it.
