So, according to "proudredneck", because he was elected president, it's West Virginia's fault that he won...even though Romney won the state.

His name should be "ignorant_hillbilly" .

F*cking dumbass.

Morons like you make the educated populous of this state look stupid.

Crawl back under your rock with your snuff & your beer.

Obviously YOU haven't looked at the statistics.
More ppl are employed in the coal industry today
than 4 yrs ago. LOL

Who needs coal?

Well....for starters India.
They are buying up a lot of coal.
Own a few mines here as well.

No one said that at all, coal is the worst for emissions, that's why we do use it in our homes anymore. There is a need on an industrial level, in WV we use it for our power plants to get electricty. Politics have nothing to do with it!

Coal is being fazed out in areas
like power production.

All coal fired electric plants are
going natural gas. Another resource
that WV has plenty of. It's going
to take some time yet to switch.
(Plus that "fracking" sh1t they are
doing...could be a good source of jobs
but destroy the environment in the process)

But coal still has a large market
in the world and other areas of sales
are being opened up.
hmmmm

"Arctic" I guess you missed the part that this administration doesn't even want it to be mined, period.. they want to tax exports so high that it would be too expensive to buy any coal from the US, therefore shutting down the entire industry..... Obama just put the nails in the coffin on coal, everyone is just waiting for him to start hammering them in..

You are all a bunch of dum azz's , coal mining in wva will never stop, it will one day not be union organized, might be now I'm not sure, but if we don't use it it will be shipped overseas, no matter what bam bam wants, he don't have the final call. And I figure if he did they will be looking for him in 30 years like there looking for jimmy! And no I'm not threatening him lol, I don't give a sit one way or the other

Now you want to blame the government because you decided to terminate you education in 10th grade.
All of the easily mined coal is gone or will be gone in a couple of years (Eastern coal).
The coal companies and electric companies are not in business to ensure that a few thousand uneducated people in Appalachia have a job to buy a gas guzzling 4-wheel drive truck, go deer hunting, dip snuff and drink beer. They are in business to make money and please their stock holders.
Natural gas is cheaper and the power companies will use the most economical means to increase their returns.
Miners are not the only people in this country that have lost their jobs!
GO BACK TO SCHOOL, GET YOUR EDUCATION AND MOVE ON!!!

Coal is far and away the largest industry in the state. Take that severance tax away and you can stick your diploma where the sun doesnt shine. Doctor, lawyer, teacher, etc. Who the hell will you be collecting your income from? The state cant fund every job. Sure, you could leave the state like a flock of sheep listening to the shepherd.

Go in there and tell that big hog to get off her lazy butt and get a job. You are no better than the other people in this state that require both husband and wife to work to support the family. I love this state, but put my family first. Find another job, move or shut up.
