a not-really-funny not-quite joke:
Q: what do you get when you cross a long drug habit, a quick temper, and a gun?
A: two life terms for murder, earliest release date, 2026.
Q: what do you get when you cross two nation states, a large corporation, 40 tons of poison, and at least 8000 dead human beings?
A: Retirement with full pay and benefits; like Warren Anderson, CEO of Union Carbide, Bhopal.

How can that which is ravenous and unleashed accept responsibility? It is drunken with blood and lust and power.

One more major case of the super-rich, mega corporations getting away with massive murder, because of their greed and lack of compassion or concern for anything, or anybody, other than their bottom line.

And, for anyone who is “sincerely” caring about this country, and wants to open their eyes to what’s really going on, please click on the link below and read this article. The author, with many, many, years of inside experience, feels BOTH THE DEMOCRATIC AND THE REPUBLICAN PARTIES ARE ROTTEN, and presents his case in a very: clear, factual, thorough, way.

Gladly noted and signed! Great petition, but do those companies ever take responsibility for anything? Fro them is't all about the money, sadly enough!

It will never make sense to me that someone can go to jail for 10 years for involuntary manslaughter because they are involved in a fatal car accident that was the victims fault, yet these guys get away with murdering 20,000 people and they walk. And it's still happening today. Johnson & Johnson is allowed to put extremely toxic chemicals in your child's shampoo and it's just okay. Oil and gas companies kill thousands with their pollution. And it's all for money. We are nothing to these companies. Such a shame. Signed and noted. Thanks

This is a shame that this disaster has gone on all these years and nothing has been done about it. It's way past time for DOW CHEMICAL to step up and take responsibility for what happened. They need to get there sorry, greedy asses back there and clean the mess they caused. And they also, need to help these people with the health problems they have. It's too late for a lot of these poor people that lost there lives because of DOW CHEMICAL. But, the people that still live there need medical help and DOW CHEMICAL needs to see that they all get the help they need. So cough up the money and do what is right!!!!!!!!!!!!!
