But there’s consent

Apparently we require the “wisdom” of Richard Cohen, America’s Concern Troll, to determine whether things get too rapey. So this one is a conundrum, can a country be physically abused if the government consents? Probably not.

A project that would use cyanide to mine gold and silver has prompted thousands of Romanians to protest.
The planned mine, near the small town of Rosia Montana would be Europe’s largest open-pit mine. Its four pits are estimated to total more than 8 kilometres in diameter and would be visible from space.

The government last week approved a draft law that would allow the project to move forward if passed by parliament. The $7.5-billion project is controlled by a Canadian company, with Romania’s government holding a 25 per cent stake…

“Four pits” means the destruction of four mountains by the way. The area is also full of historical ruins from the Roman Imperial period — oh and people, lots of people who will get jobs of some modest quality in exchange for working or living near an environmental ruin offset by the copious application of cyanide.

Sounds like a real thought-out plan.

How are the Koch brothers not involved?

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
