Public safety and health? They've gotta be kidding. Just another liberal's Big Brother effort to stop capitalists from doing what they do best, make profits by destroying the environment. A few sick children on account of a job creating hero's negligence? That's the price of freedom my friends! And according to my research and extensive calculations, a tick upward on the Dow is worth far more than any child's life. Give us back our tax money!

Yes, Steve, the equipment upgrade that Chevron required to utilize additional raw materials and to upgrade the safety of their infrastructure was prevented by 'community activists' and their lawyers, who misrepresented the project as one that would greatly increase capacity (as though that was bad thing). I guess you reap what you sow.....their actions resulted in compromises in safety and prevented increases in the number of people working at this facility.

Of course, that's what 'community activists' try to do. Stop health and safety upgrades. Do you know why? Because 'community activists' hate people.
Further, need I add that Obama is/was a 'community activist'? Have you heard the invective coming from that incompetent, Muslim, nonChristian, Kenyan terrorist socialist and tyrant who is a dog-eating hater who wants America to fail? He has the audacity to laugh at the Mittster and have his surrogates ask him to prove that he's not a crook, which he can't do, but so what? How undignifying to launch hateful invective like that!
The real tragedy here, however, is that all this is costing American taxpayers. We have inferior cultures in this country taking taxpayer money straight out of the sharks' teeth of us superior ones.

troll posing as Arnold: You're right--obama is an incompetent boob.
As is Harry Reid, falsely accusing Mr. Romney of criminal acts without any factual evidence. Of course, he chucked that grenade right before their most recent recess, so the gutless old fart wouldn't be questioned about his sources for his claims.
So, yeah, let's have four more years of the wonderful prosperity, openness, transparency and post-racial bliss that this administration has brought us.
