Has anyone seen this story in the MSM in the States? I just stumbled across it online.

Truly unbelievable.

I hate to disagree with you, but it's not unbelievable. the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration has cited the Canadian company Enbridge with 30 enforcement actions. In fact:

"In a warning letter sent Jan. 21, the agency told the company it may have violated safety codes by improperly monitoring corrosion in the pipeline responsible for the massive spill Monday in Talmadge Creek, a waterway in Calhoun County's Marshall Township that flows into the Kalamazoo River."

This is yet another example of people refusing to act responsibly, thus indicating that someone, the government, must act in our interest.

The left-wing sees America as its home. The right-wing sees Amerca as a source of income period. The wealthy right-wing will move to metaphorical Rivieras after they WRECK America. The working-class right-wing will be left standing at the airport waiting for the rescue plane that will neve come (unless their last name is Bin Laden).
