    So stupid honestly put the effort in to your personal health and well-being and stop blaming the world. Maybe you should go after McDonald's. Maybe you should focus on how you can help yourself

    So they don't want industry, good paying union jobs in pipelines, small businesses, or big businesses? What do they want?

    Funny how she is worried about pollution but not the hamburgers or donuts. Side effects of obesity 1. Diabetes 2. Heart disease I could go on and on. This lady is after the$$ she reminds me of the lady who spilled coffee on herself at McDonald's. Calm down Karen! These steel mills employ hundreds and thousands of people who are able to provide for their families because of these mills

    Green is nice and all but the only solution is to go poison some other country LOL. And I find it humorous that you think that these companies make money hand-over-fist but have no idea what the actual profit margins are. You say hold them accountable they say hello Asia.

    I think it's time to close public school's. I'm tired of people complaining about education. If you want to educate your child you should have to pay for private education or home school. All public school teacher's are spoiled and lazy.

    So, its ok to irreparably damage and pollute the environment and poison people because they need a paycheck? The owners and shareholders of these companies are making money hand over fist, but they sure as heck dont have to live with the consequences. No one is saying destroy all the factories, but how about we hold them accountable? In most of these cases, the mishandling of toxic materials is not due to ignorance of their affects or lack of a better option, but because its cheaper to dump pollutants into the ground, air, and water than to dispose of them in a safer way. God forbid, we cut into millions or billions in shareholder profits to make sure innocent children can breath. And even if theses families could just pick up and move, what then? When an area becomes too toxic, theyll just move on to anotherlikely another with the same poor population that doesnt have the option to fight against it.
