Comment Where there is a wil.. (Score 1) 258 258

If we can drill big holes really deep in the desert and explode weapons tests there, I feel it is likely we can also bury waste in deep holes there, just as well.
Seriously folks, what is the big deal?
Oh, right. Politics. Especially right wing nutjobs.
Obstructionism incarnate

Comment Get a trade (Score 1) 509 509

Skilled construction trades will always pay top dollar.
Yes, they are usually hard work, often in harsh environments.
Plumbers, Electricians, Glaziers, Carpenters, drywallers, floor installers, roofers, etc..
Get a trade, you will always be able to get a job that pays at least reasonably well.
If you do not mind moving, then it should pay quite well.

Why does everyone respond to these situations with such simplistic bullshit "answers"
Yes, you are right, given a "solution" of ONLY penalizing executives, scapegoats shall be appointed.
Also, a "solution" of only fines means some small amount will be paid while the perpetrators walk away scot-free.
The obvious solution is for BOTH to be enforced, along with a real company value devaluing penalty.
Stock forfeiture in public companies to start with..
Suspension of trading for a significant interval for another additional penalty.

If an individual is convicted of committing a crime they risk both forfeiture of assets, AND jail time.
Why is a company or corporation immune to these measures?
