    More gunk spills in West Virginia, turning creek black

    http://www.latimes.com/nation/nation...#axzz2t4ayYoi5

    300,000 people told not to use their water for anything other than flushing the toilet, two dozen hospitalized, hundreds treated and released.

    But Beavis would probably say it's all overblown.

        Hate to break the news to you but no jobs would be lost over regulations. Greed is a wonderful thing when it comes to this. Too much money to be made,regardless of what regulations are put in place. Canada,where I work, regulates the hell out of this industry and guess what they are are hiring like there's no tomorrow. They are making billions,those jobs are going nowhere. No business,especially when it comes to oil/energy is going to be that stupid.

          Canadian Job Growth In 2013 Worst In A Decade, Outside Recession

          Job creation in Canada this year has been the weakest in a non-recession year in more than a decade, and the low quality of the jobs being created is causing some economists to raise concerns about the country's economy.

          Looking at StatsCan’s latest job numbers, released last week, BMO economist Benjamin Reitzes notes that Canada created fewer than 175,000 net jobs in the year to date (meaning all of 2013 except December).

            they got so much work,oil/energy,that they can't man them. How do you think it is that I'm working up there. They got people from all over the world going there for work Americans,Australians,phillipinos, people from Spain. That's just on the union side of it. As I said,regulations aren't hurting the job market in oil/energy sector.

              My guess is you can't find work here, that's usually why people go to Canada to work. There are plenty of unskilled and highly skilled oil/energy jobs in the United States but they have their choice of the pick of the litter candidates that apply. The ones that don't get hired in the U.S. go to Canada.

                The 8,000 a month after taxes is why I'm there. I'm union, I don't. Need to look for work outside of when I decide to travel. I don't. Even need to fill an application to work at any oil plant here or in Canada. Except. For the visa.

                    Can't wait for the next President to apply Obama's "The Law is what I say it is" precedent in time to put the EPA on an 8-year sabbatical.

                          fear not, there is.

                          Obamacare sign-ups jump to 3.3 million

                          Americans continued to sign up for health insurance through the Obamacare exchanges in January, with 1.1 million people picking plans in state and federal exchanges.

                          That brings total sign-ups since the exchanges opened four months ago to nearly 3.3 million, according to federal data released Wednesday.

                              So really you aren't contributing to America at all right now? Just hopped the border where you can complain without contribuiting?
