If only there were some sort of pipe line…
Pipes are literally violence
Pipes disproportionately harm people of color.
I heard they paint them black to remind the black community they're being shafted and purposely run pipelines through black residential schools so the kids can't learn to play in the yard.
Yo, I heard dat kinda shiit, too. Dat's rayciss!
We deserve dat oils reparashunz!!!
5 million gallons each, bro!!
Women drivers, brah! Just put a woman at the command of EVERY train! It'll be spewing reparations oil like Scrooge McTrump!👌🐸
Your bank account gets pretty shafted for tax and welfare for those roaches. Sigh 😔
Lines do it even more so pipe lines are even more toxic than just pipes.
Systemic racist pipes
Pipes tend to be round. The shape "round" is the same as "circle". A circle is from geometry and geometry is a field of mathematics. Blacks can't do math, hence RACCISSSSS! You're a bigot for not understanding this.
I've am accused of a micro-aggression for even thinking it. Thought crime = 10 years in the DC Gulags.
Greta Thunderburger: How Dare You!
All these idiots, Al Gore, Thunderburger, and the rest of the Green Religion Cult all said the world would be gone by now, Miami and the key underwater, and none of it has even remotely come true. Obama has a 14 million dollar mansion on Martha's Vineyard and is building another summer house (8 million) on the shores of Hawaii and they all know it is a scam for the WEF and Great Reset.
2023 is going to be a shit show for sure. Take care pede.
Surpassed only by systemic anti-semitic pipes.
I thought they liked handing out free pipes. Sure, maybe one is a little bigger.
And perpetuate the ongoing genocide of indigenous LGBTQIA+ folks
All because of that Trump, of course! 🇺🇦 (insert appropriate degenerate emoji)
Pipes remind women of penises and bring back all their rape fanta- I mean generational rape trauamas
Unless you're talking about crack pipes

not to be confused with a crack in the pipe.. or crack in a crack pipe
Pipes (and the laying of) is ToXiC MaScUlInItY
They should just light it on fire. It’s Washington so… two birds one stone.

Where are the train cars derailing with wind turbine blades or solar panels?
Where's the trucks full of vegan meat spilling over highways?
Oh yeah, it's not popular nor of any use. Trains are for important things.
This is the fuel for the engine, not cargo
Wind turbine blades are mostly transported by truck too
But that would endanger some bug species that is important, maybe.
That poor purple belly yellow wing flat beak slug swallower
What's the purpose of the pipeline that's literally Hitler?
Its to kill native americans, you bigot!!!
We had one. It got popular really fast. Literally blew up over night.
A train also just derailed in Arizona spilling high fructose corn syrup
Let's not sugarcoat the situation
Indeed. The situation is sticky.
The plot thickens.
This looks like a job for Souperman!
They turned the desert into dessert.
They're just trying to syrup trouble
Or soda say
Nothing much of value lost there.
Not how I thought America would come to a halt. HFCS is like an infinity stone.
It certainly keeps Big Diabetes in the money
RIP Wilford Brimley.
Thank God we don't use that unsafe Keystone. TrAiNs are SAFE and Effective!
The diesel that spilled was used to power the train. It wasn't shipping it.
Check your privileged idioms, man. Don't you know urban peoples of color don't have access to forests, much less trees?
Forests are terrifying to urban folk, so this talk is bigoted violence.
That's kinda worse. That's like finding out electric busses generate extra microplastics and brake dust compared to normal non-retarded busses. "We're saving the atmosphere but absolutely fucking the soil and water"
yeah, 5000 is less than ten times the fuel in my basement
Hmm timma let me know where to fill up.
You do realize Canada's going to build a pipeline to chinese oil shipping containers. That was the point of blocking keystone.
The US governmentRussia would just blow it up
Trains: very safe, very effective and Warren Buffett approved.
We need Booster trains every 3 months now

Generally speaking they are very safe. It's only when the government appears to be sabotaging the population where it gets dicey.
I keep coming back to this cesspool because top comments are always on point. I'm not the only one who gets it. I'm not alone.
Only 5000? Bro... thats... not a lot.
Yeah, not a lot. I am guessing it is just the fuel from the locomotive and not cargo. Just a couple days ago we also had another in Washington. https://www.kiro7.com/news/local/double-semi-tanker-truck-carrying-gasoline-rolls-over-spills-fuel-i-5-lacey/H6KZJU3WJBAZ7GYOYV4R3PG4GA/
Yep, that is what, half a semi tanker?
But it devastated multiple anthills!
I would have guess a tanker carried a lot more, but looks like you are close:
80,000 pound weight limit, gas weighs 6 pounds a gallon, an empty tractor is like 15k and a empty trailer is another 15k, that is why the average tank is about 7000 gallons presuming no permits in which case that bumps up to 10k
but it’s rayciss
Smaller than an average size swimming pool.
That's, like. ... nothing.
Industrial generators will use 2500 gallons a day....
I think that is the fuel for the train's engine
And yeah the mining truck one of my grandkids operates gets like 3-5 gallons a mile
I am too old to be a boomer, meanwhile you worship them and their mentality of "don't trust anyone over 30"
Damn near no one under 30 works, that screws everyone over
I think he meant "Nobody under 30 has screwed me" and he is upset about it.
"damn near", you know it is only 15% of your generation.
He is 27 I believe
Brandon is coming for those next.
Can we stop posting these dumbass derailments that were regular back page news before qtards started paying attention and now think they've stumbled onto some new pattern?
What's next? Are we going to post every car accident in the USA too because a bunch of dumbfucks aren't aware there's one every 6 seconds?
I have come to the conclusion that is how most narratives are created. Find some regularly occurring event and highlight it. Whether it is holes in the ozone layer, train derailments, latest flu, or people killed by police, just give it some attention and suddenly we have an epidemic.
But… you’re the OP.
I'm afraid you're wrong about that sir.
You're right, but think of it from the standpoint of the MSM: some rare event happens and now you can immediately front page shit that seems related and actually make even more money off of what used to be garbage news that no one cared about before.
Yeah...seems we've kind of shelved the notions of confirmation bias and within normal range around here.
Not saying the country isn't being sabotaged. It is. But we (collectively) get after the useful idiots all the time for not thinking clearly and critically. Need to apply those same standards to ourselves. If we're on the side of truth, that's our weapon. Let's use it properly.
Agreed. It's a complete lack of people willing to dig and establish a baseline for what is/isn't "normal".
The thing that bothers me more than people not doing the research though is how easily they let the media guide their attention. This is how media controls the country. They can easily guide masses of people towards issues they're interested in and then get their own way by public pressure they themselves manufactured.
Just consider a national election. Every election cycle there are thousands of people who run for the office of the President. How many of them do people hear about? That's right - only the ones the MSM pre-selects.
Can you really say "the People" elect these cocksuckers if the MSM gets first choice regarding whom is "electable", essentially eliminating 90% of those running right off the bat? That's why the MSM is so fucking dangerous, they have the power to easily usurp our people and veto our decisions. They have more power over our government than the People do.
Spot on. I often use the metaphor of a buffet to describe this phenomenon. By that I mean that you're not gonna get tenderloin if all that's on offer are twinkies and hot dogs and soda. You're just not going to get steak if it's not on that (the media's) prepared menu.
Fuck trains though they just started some "brightline" shit in Florida that's basically a bullet train. It hasn't opened up fully yet but it's already killed like 6 or more people. It only benefits people in Miami and Orlando and is fucking up small old Florida towns that were built along the railroad tracks over 100 years ago. Like salerno Florida where I live. The railroad track goes straight through our small town, where the roads were not meant to accommodate traffic at all.
Ya fuckwad, if people didn't stop on the tracks or decide to take a nap or go for a stroll on them, people wouldn't be getting killed. It's not brightline's fault that people aren't very bright. Btw, it's way more than 6. Maybe 6 in the past month. But there are more stops than just Orlando and Miami. Infact Orlando isn't even a stop yet.
Car accidents are much more common than the train derailments we're seeing and the problems they cause. Given trains represent a backbone to our country's daily operations and mass supply line, I'd contend that we should instead raise awareness of their derailments, especially if it highlights the shoddy leadership the current administration and or Buttigieg is providing where our infrastructure's maintenance and overall failures is / are concerned.
But if you look at the amount of miles rail covers, it's around twice the length of the highway system and moves so much freight it's impressive that the number of accidents is so low.
Just ignore car accidents and look at semi-trucks. I haven't looked into it but I have a strong suspicion they cause more chemical cleanups and deaths than trains do while moving less freight by weight/volume.
If we're focusing solely on the environmental aspects, then the question boils down to the effect of the accidents. From there, you get into a wide margin of issues ranging from water table and soil contamination and respective cleanup costs to required personnel, how much they cost to do what they do, the breakdown of systems involved during the accident and cleanup efforts, and anything else that the situation merits. You'd get no argument from me that semi-truck accidents cause problems, but how many have caused equivalent problems when compared to a freight train that's hauling no less than 20 railcars full of something like diesel or whatever else that derails? There's a lot there to cover, but my bet would be that the more destructive situation would be absolutely from the derailments, especially when considering how these are happening during an economically-stressful time and right after a pandemic state.
There have been way too many "accidents" for them to be coincidental. We are under attack.
Have to agree. Them, combined with all the factory fires, the balloons, and similar problems we've seen this past year alone, it's awfully hard to believe otherwise. I wouldn't be surprised if Russia, China, or anyone in between is using sleeper cell / espionage groups to do this in response to the proxy efforts Biden keeps making.
Then again, it could be the current administration's underhanded efforts to keep pushing a climate agenda. After all, it's rather uncanny how you see a lot of these "environmental disasters" crop up during an administration's tenure that's known for pushing agendas like the Green New Deal, a similar tactic I've seen many on here claim to happen when you see a rise in mass shootings on the same administration's clock who is also known for trying their best to outlaw gun ownership.
Ever heard of the summer of shark attacks

from: some guy in black
Dear Sirs; please send train schedules to: Antifa Headquarters, care of Mr. G. Soros.
This is up near Western Washington University, where Retard is the highest earned degree.
PETE BUTTIGIEG CAUSED THIS - IT'S HIS FAULT!
I just thought I'd do what the Democrats did & still do to Trump.
Inslee in response: trains should be electric
Where are all those Green fuckers worrying about the climate?
Putting in the shunts to derail
So....... why does everything in thos administration happen like 20 times in a row. Food Plants burning down, train derailments. I am sure there are others. Like it's more than coinicidence right?
Did you actually look up the list of food plants burning?
Did they not? Was it a psyops?
The list was ridiculous.
A trailer caught fife behind a tmchicken tender packing facility.
A plane crashed into a parking lot.
A food processing plant caught on fire and the plants volunteer fire brigade put it out. The plant has one because industrial fires are so common in that industry.
It's confirmation bias on steroids.
Then when you post the fire Marshall's report that says it was an accident the pede responds of the local fire Marshall was paid off by the feds.
Wtf happened to this site
The reasonable people are slowly backing away, so the demographic here is skewing older and stupider by the day.
Then there are the concerted trolling efforts, which are getting hilarious, honestly.
Tomatoes yesterday was pretty peak stupidity.
Because Biden rolled back all of those railroad safety rules like a retard.
If only the railroads would protest for safer work environments and more safety workers...
Feds are getting good at this
But but the infrastructure bill...
Is this a deep state attack by the left wing goonies in the government or a payback by a foreign government
Why not both?
Is it still hazardous train derailment season? I thought we were moving on to financial collapse.
That’s one side of a power unit fuel tank
The real secret about climate change is this. This is an actual environmental problem, these derailments happen all the time. The pollution of our land, water, and air with industrial pollutants and plastics. People are just now beginning to grasp the scale of it, so they are going hard at "carbon emissions" to keep peoples eye off the ball. If the news or government cared about the environment AT ALL, this shit would be the focus, not carbon dioxide. They arent even GOOD liars, but people are fucking dumb.
I hear unnecessary proxy wars full of countless fuel sucking vehicles, explosions and destruction of landscape and infrastructure are great for the environment
That was diesel being sent to power the generators that are charging Kamalas electric bus.
There is never going to be a shortage of derailment stories
When is our government going to admit that our critical infrastructure in the United States is under attack by a hostile force?
the derp state rolls on
5000 gallons is just the locomotive fuel tank right?
I wonder if their procedure manuals are up to date. Last time there was a diesel spill because of an overturned semi truck in Seattle they didn't know what they were supposed to do lol.
What a bunch of dumbfucks.
There's what, 1700 trail derailments a year? Are we going to sticky a post about every single one of them now? lol
This is retarded
We call these “west coast pipelines” as they go by our rural land. We especially call them that when they leak more than the regular pipelines that we wanted would have done.
“Wait… you idiots! When we said we wanted a disaster in Washington, we meant Washington - the nation’s capital, not Washington STATE! Washington is a BLUE state you morons!”
Quick, set in on fire!
