    Obviously Perry realized lack of regulations was a major factor in the tragedy. He figured the best way would be to blame the messenger and discredit anybody who would point out the obvious. Lack of job killing regulations kills the actual people.

    Look, it is hard to argue that deregulation creates a greater incentive to businesses. It is also hard to argue that businesses are not as safe when there is less regulation. These are both facts. So conservatives should not pretend that there are no safety concerns when less regulation occurs.

    Rick Perry would gladly sign an order of execution without batting an eye. Guilty or innocent, who cares? Just kill em all and let God sort them out! But when it cums to plant owners whose negligence kills? Well it shows where his sympathies lie!

    Liberals, such as this cartoonist and the editor of the Sacramento Bee, are "compassionate" only when it's convenient. Otherwise, they'll stomp all over the innocent dead just to score a few cheap political points.

    When it's convenient? Lol! No. This is Texas policy. The people of Texas vote for people that have these policies. Low tax, low regulation, and the government shouldnt help anyone. THAT is a lack of compassion. Cons dont like it too much when the policies they love so much are applied to them! You can all wear it because it's what you want! Enjoy it!

    Rick Perry should apololize to the state of Texas for allowing this to happen by not regulating the industry!

    Two things occurred to me. First, the timing was indeed pretty callous. Second, California is so safety conscious, at least in their political rhetoric, that companies who can not afford all that safety are moving to places like Texas to escape it. How about a cartoon about how PGE is so strapped by California's over regulated environment that they couldn't afford to fix the pipeline in or near Pacifica that killed many more than 14.Self rightousness does not become thee California.
