Ha, Lee County has voted to erect a fake statue called Mount Racemore in order to draw Bristol business to their town. Do you agree with this?

HA why would it bother anyone in Bristol? What else would Lee County have other than a "FAKE" statue to offer. Maybe they could get some of the race fans to swing up and see it but as far as "take Bristol business" not a chance. At best your counting on fans well taken care of by Kingsport, JC and Bristol to drive an hour and a half to see a "fake" statue. Funny thing about race fans is they want to see racing. Even if you offered free beer with a ticket they won't cratch the surface of the race business in Bristol.

It's causing so much contraversy in Lee. No one in Lee wants this statue except the IDA. Even the Tobacco grant people were against it and gave zero dollars.

Maybe they could pull a 100 ton piece of coal out and put Obama's head up and then maybe he won't hate miners so much.

This is actually the stupidest thing I ever heard. Leave it to Lee County to come up with such a retarded waste of tax payer money. It is actually the town of Pennigton Gap doing this. They must need to steer away from the chiefs drug dealing fiasco! Or, need the money brought in from the sight seeing trap to pay for any pending lawsuits. Evidently the mayor isn't the only one over there that has lost his marbles. Good ol' Lee county, the a$$hole of the state of Virginia. No wonder it smells like $h*t over there all the time. Do you know what happens when you shake a pill bottle in public over there? All the women drop to their knees!!!

"just maybe" have you ever seen anyone suffer and die from black lung?
word to the big coal owners either clean up your mines or take the consequences. so many people don't know the meaning of the words clean air. the big coal owners don't want to be bothered because they don't get down in the mines and work. the poor actual coal miner is the one that will suffer the consequences. the big shots don't want to dole out the money to clean up their act and it don't really matter how much you little guys suffer.
