TDS:

Here’s a tribute to a few Republican senators who find comfort and advantage in invoking the heroes of 9/11 but refuse to give them health care.

    9/11 has been the last refuge of scoundrels for a while now, from Giuliani, to the war in Iraq to nowadays and the bought-out politics.
    Lame-as-fuck society.

    There is NO evidence that 9/11 responder’s ailments are greater than the NY population as a whole. They are not entitled to monetary damages. At once the Reps make rationale decisions based on evidence, or in this case no evidence.

  3. Wow, you are quite the asshole — Not only are you factually incorrect — the data is rather overwhelming — but you are repeating really hateful, creepy wingnut talking points.

    I have 3 suggestions:

    1) Go fuck yourself,
    2) Hit the bricks,
    3) You ain’t welcome here

    I am tempted to hunt you down and kick your ass myself. Either that, or have you thrown out of high school.

    EPA Misled Public on 9/11 Pollution; White House ordered false assurances on air quality, report says by Laurie Garrett, Newsday (August 23, 2003)

    The dust from the collapsed towers was “wildly toxic”, according to air pollution expert and University of California Davis Professor Emeritus Thomas Cahill. The thousands of tons of toxic debris resulting from the collapse of the Twin Towers consisted of more than 2,500 contaminants,[3] more specifically: 50% non-fibrous material and construction debris; 40% glass and other fibers; 9.2% cellulose; and 0.8% of the extremely toxic carcinogen asbestos, as well as detectable amounts of [4] lead, and mercury. There were also unprecedented levels of dioxin and PAHs from the fires which burned for three months.[5] Many of the dispersed substances (asbestos, crystalline silica, lead, cadmium, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons) are carcinogenic; other substances can trigger kidney, heart, liver and nervous system deterioration. This was well known by the EPA at the time of collapse.

    This has led to debilitating illnesses among rescue and recovery workers, and the pulmonary fibrosis death of NYPD member Cesar Borja.[6][7][8][9] Increasing numbers of cases are appearing in which first responders are developing serious respiratory ailments.[10] Health effects also extended to some residents, students, and office workers of Lower Manhattan and nearby Chinatown.[11]
    Ground zero workers and cancer

    On November 28, 2006, the Village Voice reported that several dozen recovery personnel have developed cancer – as opposed to having contracted respiratory ailments, and that doctors have argued that some of these cancers developed as a result of the exposure to toxins at the Ground Zero site: “To date, 75 recovery workers at ground zero have been diagnosed with blood cell cancers that a half-dozen top doctors and epidemiologists have confirmed as having been likely caused by that exposure.”[12]

    @EvilTraderDude:

    When I read your post, a song popped up in my mind. A song by Biggie Smalls; you know, the one with C-Rock. Wanna play Puff’s part…bitch?

  7. FrancoisT says:

    @Prince Charming;

    Any ass, as ugly as it could be, would be deeply insulted to be compared with such a Grand Apostle of the Extreme Fucktardism as ETD.

    Antisocial personality disorder would be my diagnosis. There is no cure while alive.
