Is it enough for Americans to only expect employment, even of the most dangerous sort? Do we even have a right to demand a safe-as-possible working environment? Who gets to decide what 'safe-as-possible' means?

Or is it merely, as our wrong-wing wregulars shout out loudly, "Take what you get from the wealthy man and like it!" without complaint from the working rabble?

I think the comments from the grieving West Virginia family members tell it all, but I am just one of those horrible 'liberal bloggers' that invoke fear and loathing among the rich by exposing their limitations.

What do you have to say about this - or anything else you want to discuss? The floor is yours.
