The coal industry is behind keeping a cracker out of the state. Part of their conspiracy to keep West Virginians poor.

Not the coal industry. The state is run by idiots. Hell even Michigan is a right-to-work state now. WV is poor because the people that created WV in Baja-Ohio...I mean Wheeling...were corrupt and sold all the timberland and mineral rights to the invaders that put them in power in 1863. WV should have the wealth of Texas or Oklahoma but robber-barons of industry from Ohio, PA and New York took all of that when they invaded. I bet you aren't taught that in school around here. Your people's wealth went on to build Cleveland, Pittsburgh and NYC while your ancestors got nothing but black lung and coal company housing. Natural Gas is no different today. Look at the company names on buildings in Pittsburgh and Akron Ohio. The corporate offices are there and the money goes there while the fuel leaves here. It's a crime but how many of you people are smart enough to care or do anything about it?

And nothing's going to change under Earl Ray Stumblin.
