Normally I am a big fan of Micheal Moore, but I must say I was dissappointed with his dogged insistance to be so negative on a night when the world was celebrating the rescue of the trapped miners. He came accross as being extremely pesimistic and bull headed in the attempt to shift the message to his desires. Even when Larry tried to redirect him, Micheal was determined to whine away on his injustice to jour. To bad, it was an oppourtunity to look like a resonable human being!!

Moore blames the decline of unions in the US on Reagan's handling of the air traffic controllers union and then seconds later rails against 25%unemployment in Michigan. He blasts Corporate America and then wants them to employ more workers. He wants everything fixed and his plan is to simply laugh at everyone who doesn't agree with his drivel. Brilliant!!! He's as crazy as the tea party. Let me know when he leaves his current position of being the "all-knowing and all powerful one", I'd like to apply.

Much of the entire world's easily accessed mineral deposits have already been mined and removed many decades ago, leaving difficult to mine and much poorer concentrations of mineral deposits as all that is left to satisfy earth's insatiable appetite for Iron, Steel, Gold, Silver, Chromium, Cadmium, Lithium, Tungsten, Magnesium and Uranium.

Some of these strategic metals and elements 'can be' recycled but no where at a 100% level, leaving much of Steel, Gold, Silver, Copper, Cadmium, Lithium etc. in America's and the earths massive landfills.

For technology and society as we know it today, natural minerals and elements are like drugs which would be very difficult to live without as civilization as it is now is totally dependent and addicted to using mass amounts of natural minerals and element metals.

A nation much less the entire world would be very different without Gold, Silver, Copper and Iron.

I have worked in tunnels underground and have known many miners across America. There is very little lee-way for any lapse in safety, any gross neglect of miners safety and people are crushed to death.

No matter how difficult mineral resource mining becomes in the future, Nations and their Governments must protect mining employees with strict safety regulations and keep a boot at the neck of mining corporate raiders which lengthy mining violations and are known to skirt the laws and repeatedly place their employees safety in great risk in making a quick profit for those corporate shareholders and CEO.

@ Smith in Oregon. I salute your comment.
Can any one tell us why witches, goblins and crazy people are allowed to run for office and given so much air time? What is going on in America we are sending our job overseas and our brain is being drained by the tea bagers and killing our brave young men and women in wars we started based on greed and lies ?
Lets love America this is the only country we have.
