Now kentucky needs A. Judd!!! She will help the remaining coal business finish shutting down. She and Obama can't look at anything but what they chose to. We need less goverment more work force and less regulations and more of the right to work!!!! I lived a long life and I have NEVER seen more silly bull than in the past few years!!! Corn is for cows. Fossil fuels are for fuels, and vacations should be for working people. Goverment employees flying around the world on your tax dollars, what progress has that made for you and me? NOTHING!!!! Military men and women getting ready to come out can't find a job!!! Huge unemployment rate. At least for the ones that still do have their arms and legs!!!! People with degrees can't find a job!!! People with masters in many areas, wait tables. This country is nothing like it could or should be!!! It makes me sick!!!1
