Really? Then what about these as*holes? Ben Affleck, Nicolas Cage,
Leonardo DiCaprio, Steven Spielberg and a host
of other Hollywood celebrities have helped
make California the Golden State for Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes' U.S. Senate campaign. Each of those celebrities gave the maximum
allowed $5,200 contribution to the Grimes
campaign and were part of a $700,000 windfall
that Grimes received from Californians between
July 1 and Sept. 30. That is more than a quarter of the $2.5 million
Grimes raised during the first three month of
her campaign, according to a report filed
recently with the Federal Election Commission. By comparison, Kentuckians gave Grimes just
more than $500,000 for that period, according
to the report.

Economics 101 wrote:
Coal is on the way out because it can't compete economically in the free market. Eastern Kentucky coal cannot compete with Wyoming coal because it costs far more to mine Appalachian coal than it does to mine Powder River Basin coal. Appalachian coal is in thin seams and in mountain terrain. Very hard and expensive to get out of the ground. Wyoming coal is in beds 100 feet or more thick under flat land. And not very deep. It is much easier and cheaper to dig out of the ground. So the coal costs less. Users of coal buy the cheapest product. They buy Wyoming coal.
Natural gas is even cheaper -- and becoming cheaper all the time. Once a gas well is drilled there is almost no labor involved. Same goes for transporting it. Coal is bulky and expensive to move. Once a natural gas pipeline is built, it is almost labor free. Disposal of waste is also a factor. Coal ash is hard to dispose of and dangerous. Disposing of it is expensive. Natural gas has zero solid waste to dispose of.
So bottom line: Mitch McConnell's "fight for coal" is just political hot air for the coal addicts. If McConnell (or anyone else) really believes that he can change the basic laws of economics, he is delusional. Anyone trying to "save coal" is pissing in the wind.
I just found this thread and am glad to see someone actually understands why the coal industry is dieing. The rich Republican owners of our power grid are not in the game for public service. They want to make money. Cheap fuel and less labor cost is music to their ears. That you for your post 101. I have been preaching this for years. Vote Democrat!

The billionaire Koch brothers, and Senate Majority
Leader Harry Reid's favorite whipping boys , announced Friday that they are donating a $25 million grant to the United Negro College Fund. The grant will be used to provide "nearly 3,000
merit based awards to African American ...students
seeking scholarship assistance," according to the Charles Koch Foundation's press release.$18.5 million of the money offered will go toward a
scholarship program, with the remaining $6.5
million going to general support of historically
black colleges and universities.$4 million is to go to
loan assistance. "UNCF is proud to announce this new scholarship
program that will help motivated and deserving
students not just get to and through school, but to
become our next generation of innovators and
entrepreneurs. We are enormously grateful to Koch
Industries and the Charles Koch Foundation for their long-standing support of UNCF and for
helping to create new opportunities for earned
success and a better future for our students," said Michael Lomax, UNCF president and CEO. "Increasing well-being by helping people improve
their lives has long been our focus," Charles
Koch said in a statement. The Washington Post noted "such a highly- publicized gift is unusual for Charles Koch. His
foundation routinely gives away lots of money, but
typically with little fanfare." Senator Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has criticized the Koch
brothers countless times from the Senate
floor, calling them a "pair of shadow billionaires spending millions of dollars to rig our political
system" and "two very wealthy individuals who intend to buy their very own Congress." Reid also claimed that all Obamacare "horror stories" were "being paid for by two billionaire
brothers" - the Kochs - and that they were
"absolutely false." Despite Reid's continued attacks, a George
Washington University poll found that 52% of
Americans have never heard of the Koch brothers. A Wall Street Journal/NBC News
poll found similar numbers.

Fat pocket Mitch, Good ole boy from Alabama well at least he knows how to make himself a millionaire and kiss up to the koch brothers
Like Democrats know how to make millionaires of themselves and kiss up to George Soros? Fat Pocket Obama is out kissing up today and the rest of the holiday weekend begging for money from the wealthy. He don't know how to run the country but he sure knows how to beg for money. Same with Grimes...she patronizes the rich too. Surely what's good for Obama and Grimes is good for Mitch.
Grimes father was forced to resign while he was a state representative and chair of the state Democratic Party for ethics violations.....when he was convicted of a felony. Does anyone believe that Allison doesn't have the same ethic principles as her father?

The fact she is wooing Hollywood already sends a
message to Kentucky that she doesn't have or
support our values. That's enough to send her
packing in the next election, as we can't have
someone under the thumb of Hollywood liberals
voting for proposals behalf of the people of Kentucky. Accurate depiction of who and what Grimes is Shareing
