When you talk with ignorant “Libertarians” who are in fact the recipients of the benefits of centuries of labor struggle–before they were even born–you see a mindless disconnect. They really don’t understand the topics they are so passionate about. Useful idiots of capitalist dogma.

Inside the Corporate Utopias Where Capitalism Rules and Labor Laws Don’t Apply

I’ve never seen such a shocking explosion, like ever.

Numerous people killed and maimed in the Texas fertilizer plant explosion  so far.   Already it’s off the main news page and getting buried in media coverage.

A tale of two sets of victims?

The Boston attacks killed 3 people, but with political overtones this is the great issue of our time, according to the media and authorities.

The Texas plant explosion killed perhaps 15, but perhaps 40 or more as in other reports.  These people only showed up to work to feed their families.  But this doesn’t seem to be an issue at all.

Is that so?  Is the safety of workers who are incinerated en masse not an issue?  Not to the political class.  Is this company potentially guilty of criminal negligence and manslaughter?  When will we hear something about that?
