Point is did all the blacksmiths starve to death with the invention of the automobile ? I don't think so, maybe some of them learn't to forge spare parts who knows. Were there any picket lines protesting against Henry Ford, he would have been the villain then. But it was progress, and Republicans use to embrace it once. Only in the past decade not so much.More voices from the coalfields.
“Coal miners are people who want to WORK, not be on welfare, food stamps, unemployment ect. For those who say get another job. Well those aren't out there. This event is to support our miners in hopes of bringing attention as far as to the white house, so they don't lose their jobs. Yes, this won't solve the problem. But it is a start in getting attention through strength in numbers. No one thinks this will fix it but I can assure you that everyone in that line will also be voting and that will make a difference. Bottom line is, anyone who cuts down a hard working person or a person trying to help people they don't even know, is pathetic. We need our jobs and we appreciate all the support but feel sorry for someone who doesn't respect their neighbors when they are scared and need help. Me and my family will be in that "silly" line on saturday, because we support our friends, family, neighbors and our community!”
Clean energy is progress, there is just as much money to be made to have processes to burn coal clean than it is to dig it up.
If not then it will become worthless in the modern age, either adapt or die. It was how the country was built.
