If the republicans had funded mass transit instead of giving tax breaks to big oil this could have been prevented. The use of modern technology would have slowed the train if the engineer failed to do so. View Comment

Clearly Norwalk_m3 is not able to understand what she reads. He had many of these explosives that are each equal to a stick of dynamite.. This would be more than enough to level several homes in the area.
Its sad how the right wingers re lamely attempting to justify this. I wonder if they would be supporting this criminal behavior if it were a minority and not one of their own right wingers. View Comment
Actually Kenny all the people you mentioned were far right wing extremists... As a matter of fact all tbe recent mass shooting were done by right wingers. Maybe that's why they are so obsessed with keeping their weapons of mass destruction. View Comment
More would blame Republicans for government shutdown: poll
(Reuters) - More people will blame congressional Republicans than President Barack Obama if the government shuts down this week and most want a budget deal to avoid disruption to federal funding and services, a poll released on Monday showed.
Forty-six percent said that if government agencies and programs start closing on Tuesday, they would fault Republicans in Congress while 36 percent said they would blame Obama, the CNN survey found. Thirteen percent said both would be at fault.
Government Shutdown Blame Would Fall On Republicans, GOP Seen As 'Spoiled Children': Poll
Most Americans would blame congressional Republicans rather than President Barack Obama for a shutdown, and many Americans view the GOP as acting like "spoiled children," according to a CNN/ORC International poll released Monday.
Forty-six percent of respondents would blame congressional Republicans, 36 percent would blame Obama and 13 percent would blame both. Sixty-nine percent said that the GOP is acting like "spoiled children" in the budget fight, while 58 percent think that of congressional Democrats and 49 percent think that of President Barack Obama. Six in 10 respondents reject the GOP's approach and think it is more important to avoid a shutdown than to make major changes to the Affordable Care Act.
The poll is an indication that the Republicans' hard-line approach does not resonate with many Americans, and could have consequences in future elections. Nevertheless, the GOP has touted the tactic of using the continuing resolution to fund the government to demand changes to Obamacare, crafting the populist slogan "Make DC Listen."
