West Virginia\’s governor has ordered the company at the center of a chemical spill that tainted the water supply for the state capital to begin the process of removing all above-ground storage tanks from the Charleston operation.
They can remove the spill from the people that were affected, but they cannot remove the people, who were willing to let the corporations spill things into their environment, exist.
It just seems to me, in the context of regulation (history), that the people of West Virginia are more than willing to trust corporations, than their elected officials.
At least trust them more than their Republican leaders.
Of course, during the 2016 elections they will probably all vote Republican, ha!!!

Why is your Headline important?
Well it is important, but certainly, as the author apparently agrees, not important enough to comment about.

While bombings in Baghdad killed at least 20 people Sunday, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said America would help Iraq battle the al Qaeda militants that overtaken two of the nation’s western cities — but emphasized that the fight belonged to them
This sounds like one of those, “I will fight no more forever” moments, but I wonder if we can call Kerry Chief?
Probably not, but I think he does speak for most Americans.

Occidental Petroleum had a fairly solid 2013. The company kept pace with the market for most of the year, only recently dropping off and underperforming. That could change in 2014 as the company has a massive catalyst that could unlock billions in value and send its shares higher.
Many analysts on Wall Street see the company selling its oil and gas operations in the Middle East and North Africa in the year ahead. These operations are worth an estimated $22 billion, which is more value than investors currently ascribe to Occidental Petroleum credit for the assets. Many analysts suggest the company could sell a partial stake in these assets for $8-$10 billion and use that cash to buy back stock and pay down some of its debt.
Analysts at Merrill Lynch, for example, see Occidental Petroleum\’s shares being worth up to $130 if the company makes such a move. In fact, Merrill Lynch recently named Occidental Petroleum as one of its top energy stocks for 2014. Others aren\’t quite as bullish as the average price target for the stock is $108.45 for the next 12 months.
Excellent!! In my most The Simpson’s favorite voice.
