Kick Them When They're Down?

I find it the Monday morning quarterbacking we see after an incident such as the collapse of that freeway overpass in the East Bay disturbing, to say the least. People immediately look to blame someone and in that case, naturally, the driver falls under scrutiny.

Now we find out the driver had a criminal record of sorts and some are questioning why he was allowed to haul hazardous cargo. Sorry, if I don't go along with that one. Isn't the guy allowed to have a job after he's paid the price for his past criminal activities? Some people apparently think not.

Enter the San Francisco Chronicle's, Debra Saunders. She takes a look at the issue and, as far as I'm concerned, leaves little left to be said.

"...Sacramento cannot pass a law prohibiting steel from melting at 3,000 degrees."
Since when did that deter the idiots in Sacramento?

although I believe that structural steel melts at 2200 degrees (maybe a little more) not 3000, the rest of her article is great and I agree with what she said completely

One of Rosie O'Big Mouths arguments that 9/11 was an inside job was her claim that "fire cannot melt steel", e.g. the government blew up building #7.
D'oh

I blame the refinery. It is manufacturing flammable fluid. How dumb is that?

Speeding in CA? Never, I mean 55mph is fast enough for everybody isn't it? I doubt speeding had a thing to do with it. Otherwise we would all be dead a long time ago.

This was a terrorist attack plain and simple. It was obviously foiled. I have seen '24', they are out to get us. We are lucky it was just an overpass and not diablo canyon!

Thank god for Jack Bauer!

CRITICAL UPDATE...

The 4/29 Truth site previously linked to has been excommunicated from the movement. Having first secured solid evidence that 4/29 was caused by a nuclear blast, the aforementioned blogger has caved to the Amerikkkan propaganda machine and retracted the story.

From now on, all 4/29 Truthers should shun this turncoat coward who is clearly being paid off by someone, and instead turn their attention to True heroic voices like 429truth.org and Ikea Did 4/29.

Every movement attracts its quislings, but we are growing stronger by the hour! Google it, people!

Every blog requires some levity occasionally that both ends of the spectrum can be amused by.
Thanks Fred and Debra Saunders.

I'd almost agree, except BoHn doesn't work for Rennner anymore. He works for Evergreen.

I'm sure there's a conspiracy in there somewhere.

You are all showing your absolute ignorance. You must all be republicans you are so clueless. I just talked to Yugo-Free.Com, you know our DA's main man on all issues 9/11. He has it on good authority,(Kim Starr) told him that in a drum circle the other night a rightoues rasta rambler whispered these sweet nothings to her as she serviced his unwashed glory. "Yugo, I thought I was in a dumpster he was so tasty like old tuna fish and sweet old socks" and he told me " the government did it". ",They hid explosives in the steel super structure,ready to blow(excuse the pun) by remote control". "The only screw up was the truck driver was ment to die". Kim is so,so hot in an infectious way.
