Chile's Miners Would Still Be Down There if They Were Democrats
Publius Forum ^ | 10/15/10 | Warner Todd Huston

Posted on 10/15/2010 7:56:21 AM PDT by Mobile Vulgus

The world is rejoicing that the miners trapped for over a month in the bowels of a mountain in Chile are finally rescued. As the rescue was ongoing President Barack Obama said of the worried families, "the tears they shed after so much time apart expressed not only their own relief, not only their own joy, but the joy of people everywhere." Touching sentiments. These miners have to be joyful about one other thing: that they aren't miners trapped in an American mine during Obama's presidency. If they had been, they'd still be down there unable to wipe the tears from their loved one's faces.

Chile's President, Sebastián Piñera, famously set aside the bureaucracy of his country's regulations and set to work rescuing these trapped men. He threw open his arms and accepted help from as many interested nations as possible allowing their experts and scientists to lend a helping hand. The Herculean task was accomplished and everyone came out alive.

But if we can use the British Petroleum disaster in Louisiana as any indication, if those Chilean miners had had the misfortune to have been in an American mine disaster, they'd still be down there wasting away as Obama twiddled his thumbs, quite unlike Chile's president....

It would take two years of environment impact reports to see if drilling would be allowed, three court cases to determine where the material removed from the drilling could be stored, and three weeks to set up the venue so that Larry King or Wolf Blitzer could get exclusive coverage of the rescued miners being brought out so they could be asked their views on how much they loved the Obama administration.

Chile's President, Sebastián Piñera also was not stupid enough to call for a moratorium on all mining operations in Chile.

If they were Democrats, they’d have spent the past 69 days blasting the damned hole deeper!

At least you can read it. That busy blog site won’t display on my BlackBerry. If he really wanted to get his message to more conservatives, he would include the content here.

While I was watching the successful rescue, I was wondering: “Where are all the lawyers?” You know they were the first responders in the oil spill, so where are they for the Chilean miners?

If the Democrats were in charge of rescuing the miners, they would have tried two plans:

Plan A: Find the point on the opposite side of the earth and begin digging as the same speed they have been digging the economic hole into which they have spent us.

Plan B: Tell the miners to continue digging until they see light at the bottom of the hole.

No, they would not consider Plan C which would be to do both or any other plan, because Barneyly, they aren’t smart enough.

LOL, thanks. These fools are now starting whole vanity threads to attack me. Losers. I find it funny that they are making vanity threads (and Freepers HATE vanity threads) to attack a thread they don’t like! So they are making vanity threads no one likes to drum up support for their childish campaign to attack a poster they don’t like? Any hypocrisy there? YEP!

to attack a thread they don’t like!

What thread would that be?

So they are making vanity threads..

Plural? I thought it was singular. Get your facts straight.

...to attack a poster they don’t like

Again, why do you think it is all about you? That is so paranoid... The jokes are about pimps in general, although I can write a joke/song about just you if you like... :)

I find it amazing you don’t comprehend the only complaint being made is: if you use FreeRepublic to promote your blog, post the content on FreeRepublic.

That’s because his site is a trough of crap designed to act like a trawling net in the hopes he will catch something.

It’s too bad. His writing is pretty decent BUT HE IS A CULTURAL BRUTE.

Dude, why can’t you follow the community standards. We ain’t asking you to leave but to post the entire content of your writing.

You can always put a tease at the end like “For more of my magnificent thoughts to amuse you and stimulate your intellect, click here”.

I actually don’t know what it would say but it seems you are a creative writer and maybe you could come up with something?

Well...
1. We pay for the privilege of being here. You don’t.

2. We know better than to go spouting off in someone else’s home without knowing the ground rules. You don’t.

3. We do this pretty much to any poster who has a blog and uses FR as part of their life plan of self adulation or for a couple of bucks, with no regard for the rest of who pay for the privilege of being here.

4. Uhm, this loser probably makes more in 3 months than you do all year. Maybe more.

You are just some guy with a decent opinion living in his mother’s basement.

Pretty sure the rest of the losers on the Blog Posse pay their own way and have good manners. You don’t.

Know why?

You are a Mooch and a sociopath. You just literally have no conscience about what you are doing and everyone else is wrong. Thing is, you are still the common denominator.

PS Why the hell do you continue to write to yourself? It’s a bit indicative of a lone drunkard.

Good Gawd! And here I am telling you your writing is creative and loser is the only word in your quiver of insults?

And how is liar even relevant to the posts here?

All you need to do is create a vanity thread attacking their vanity thread. The circle will be complete.

He has made a claim of conservative activism before. I certainly am not the only person using a BlackBerry.

I would think he would want to get the message out to the most people. Isn't that why Free Republic exists? To get the conservative word out?

I'm not hoping he builds new formats or new systems. He already chooses to post on FreeRepublic. He also chooses to limit that content.

It appears he values blog hits over spreading his conservative message.

I'm not suggesting a law or rule change.

I suggesting that Freepers using Free Republic to promote their web site ought to have the courtesy to share that promoted content here.

We disagree, no biggie.

There is. From FR's homepage: "Do not spam us with links to your own site." What part of that do you not get?

It appears similar to the Admin Moderator's definition, although this particular complaint revolved around blogs in the news category.
