And big surprise, the folks that brought you the latest water flavoring have filed for bankruptcy!

They're claiming they only have $1 million in assets despite having paid more than $10 million to shareholders in the last three years. It sounds like they did what a lot of mines do and simply looted all the cash before declaring bankruptcy and dumping all the costs on to taxpayers. Some states, like California, solve this probably by making companies post a bond, even giving them up to 10 years to fully pay the bond, but Republicans claim that is just to onerous on mining companies.

On the upside when the fuckers try this shit in California the people harmed can always just sue and seize the bond so the fuckers don't get away Scot free. One of the biggest problems though is the bond usually ends up not being large enough to pay all the damages but at least people get SOMETHING. Naturally this is one of those regulations big business wants eliminated.
