A dirty word

After thorough investigation, it’s been determined that the deadly explosion in the town of West was due to an unregulated facility.

Interesting. Because whenever our president mentions regulating industries, he gets vilified as a job killer.

At least, that’s what our governor and his political cronies scream whenever regulation is mentioned. However, unregulated facilities have proven to be a people-killer, which is a hard truth they refuse to acknowledge.

But since Texas is a profit-over-people state, both employees and communities will remain endangered.

In Texas, regulation is a dirty word if it threatens the wealth of the affluent.

Just because you’re rich doesn’t mean your logic is sane.
