Skip to comments.Chile's Miners Would Still Be Down There if They Were Democrats
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....

Now that’s funny.
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.
There oughta' be a law! (How's that for a "conservative" message?)
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?
Your new and expanded definition of the word, “spam.”
> “Clicked on your blog a dozen times just to piss people off.”
FR’s, not mine, pal. How do you not understand that?
We’ll send someone over pronto to change your diaper.
Better give your hard drive a bath. You can pick up a bunch of unwanted crap at that site.
Wow...four more new spam posts on our thread after the other two got pulled? You are sooooo asking for a zot!
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 dont like! So they are making vanity threads no one likes to drum up support for their childish campaign to attack a poster they dont like? Any hypocrisy there? YEP!
You lost me at, "This is unacceptable."
Let me know when you find something, like the name of the virus/adware/malware, etc.
