Shuster: Two more casualties in the 'War on Coal'
July 10, 2013
U.S. Rep. Bill Shuster, R-Hollidaysburg, said the impact of two Pennsylvania coal-fired power plant closures reaches beyond the coal industry — it impacts anyone who pays electric bills.
FirstEnergy, the Akron, Ohio-based parent company of West Penn Power, announced Tuesday that it plans to close Hatfield's Ferry Power Station in Masontown and Mitchell Power Station in Courtney by Oct. 9.
The closures are due to tightening Environmental Protection air quality standards.

Adapt or die. Coal is a relic of the past.

Any suffering as a result of its slow decline due to market forces comes directly from the policy decisions of Republicans who deny science and perpetuate obsolete, destructive technologies.

Want to blame someone for suffering in coal country? Take a look in the mirror, son.

LOL!

Why is the U.S. arming Egyptian terrorists?
June 29, 2013
The Obama administration should stop sending taxpayer dollars to nations that embrace Islamic terrorism — nations that behave like adversaries, not allies.
Case in point: Egypt and the radical Muslim Brotherhood. The Obama administration recently agreed to spend an additional $250 million in taxpayer money to send weapons to this increasingly unstable nation.
That's in addition to the more than $1 billion annual taxpayer giveaway to Egypt. The United States is putting highly sophisticated tanks and warplanes in the hands of terrorists — terrorists who are hostile to America and to our longtime ally, Israel.
http://triblive.com/opinion/featuredcommentar...
Sooo predictable and true to form. The wingnuts - being the true reactionaries they are - their blind hatred of Obama causes them to attack him for anything he does, even when he implements policies THEY demanded of him.

Here's the only principle the right has left - blindly attack anything the President says or does. Obama implements the policy Republicans have been demanding and suddenly it's the most horrible thing the wingnuts have ever heard of.

Honestly - could you be MORE of a mindless wingnut drone? LMAO!

Will Obamacare take bite out of dental coverage?
Dental health may suffer after law’s rollout, experts say
July 13, 2013
The Affordable Care Act has no teeth. That is not to say enforcement won’t be strict—by all accounts, it will.
No, the law literally has no teeth. Dental coverage was all but ignored in the sweeping health-care overhaul.
So while more Americans will likely gain access to medical care when the law goes into effect next year, the number that can afford a visit to the dentist for a filling, root canal or checkup may actually decrease, industry officials say.
The health reform law requires consumers to buy a health plan that covers everything from seeing a psychologist to the full cost of breast pumps—but there are no such mandates for dental coverage, or requirements that insurers pay for the care of most Americans’ pearly whites.
http://www.marketwatch.com/story/will-obamaca...
So let me get this straight. Now you're bitching because the ACA doesn't cover MORE services?

LMAO! I love it when the wingnuts PROVE they have absolutely no integrity. They stand for NOTHING. Nothing except for their blind, visceral hatred of the President.

Why Underemployment May Be Worse Than It Looks
Monday, 8 Jul 2013
The level of underemployed workers looks bad on its face but even worse when it's not the government doing the counting.
When the Labor Department released its monthly nonfarm jobs report Friday, it was all sunshine and roses except for one glaring weakness: A big jump in the underemployment rate that includes those who have quit working as well as those who have had to take part-time jobs even though they'd rather work full-time.
That rate, which economists call the U-6, jumped from 13.8 percent in May to 14.3 percent in June—a 3.6 percent increase and indicative that the 195,000 new jobs created in the month weren't exactly of the highest caliber.
http://www.cnbc.com/id/100870095
Really? This old trope?

The U6 is ALWAYS higher than the official unemployment rate, you uninformed nitwit. And under Obama's leadership, it has declined FASTER than the official unemployment rate.
Yeah right

Venerable leftist weekly demands president’s impeachment over mass surveillance
In the pages of The Nation, the oldest continuously published weekly in the country and the self-described “flagship of the left,” a former member of the House of Representatives has called for the impeachment of the president over revelations of massive government surveillance of ordinary citizens.
Democrat Elizabeth Holtzman of New York, who sat on the House Judiciary Committee during the Watergate era, powerfully yet dispassionately lays out the case for the immediate impeachment of the president.
“Nothing less is necessary to protect our constitutional system and preserve our democracy,” she declares.
The last straw for the retired Congresswoman was the revelation that the president “directed the wiretapping of hundreds, possibly thousands, of Americans”(a number that is likely conservative).
“As a matter of constitutional law, these and other misdeeds constitute grounds for the impeachment,” writes Holtzman in her bombshell treatise.“A President, any President, who maintains that he is above the law — and repeatedly violates the law — thereby commits high crimes and misdemeanors, the constitutional standard for impeachment and removal from office.”
http://dailycaller.com/2013/06/28/dc-world-ex...
Well, if Elizabeth Holtzman says so, then I suppose it's all over but the resignation of the President.

ROFLMAO!

How's that?
I'm not so sure about that. I don't think the emergence of a amateur police state where any gun-happy dipshit can self-deputize, carry a handgun, and shoot any kid who doesn't give him the proper deference without any legal consequences is ultimately pretty damn important.

And it isn't just Florida where people no longer have the duty to retreat and where the only witness testimony at trial will be that of the shooter. It's happening all over the nation.

And THAT it is most certainly NOT a "paltry distraction."

A Surge in Part-Time Workers
July 5, 2013
The June jobs report saw a surge in part-time workers, and the health care law that starts coming into full effect next year might be in part responsible. The number of part-time workers for economic reasons climbed to 8.2 million in June from 7.6 million in March.
The economist Casey B. Mulligan ran through the numbers on this blog earlier in the week. The Affordable Care Act gives employers an incentive to hire part-time workers rather than full-time workers, as they might be compelled to offer health coverage to the latter, but not the former. That’s why a number of big employers have started offering more temporary or part-time positions.
http://economix.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/07/05/...
Is there an echo in here? You already posted this.

And I responded with the fact that as a nation emerges from a recession, there is ALWAYS an uptick in part-time employment first.

Power Plant Air Pollution Kills 13,000 People Per Year, Coal-Fired Are Most Hazardous: ALA Report

The American Lung Association (ALA) recently released a new report on the dramatic health hazards surrounding coal-fired power plants.

The report,“Toxic Air: The Case For Cleaning Up Coal-Fired Power Plants,” reveals the dangers of air pollution emitted by coal plants.

One of the starkest findings in the report claims,“Particle pollution from power plants is estimated to kill approximately 13,000 people a year.”

So what's the biggest culprit?

“Coal-fired power plants that sell electricity to the grid produce more hazardous air pollution in the U.S. than any other industrial pollution sources.” According to the report details, over 386,000 tons of air pollutants are emitted from over 400 plants in the U.S. per year. Interestingly, while most of the power plants are located in the Midwest and Southeast, the entire nation is threatened by their toxic emissions.

An ALA graph shows that while pollutants such as acid gases stay in the local area, metals such as lead and arsenic travel beyond state lines, and fine particulate matter has a global impact. In other words, while for some workers the pollution may be a tradeoff for employment at a plant, other regions don’t reap the same benefits, but still pay for the costs to their health.

Go back to horse and buggy. Try running your internet on candle wax and make sure the nuclear power plant is built in your backyard. Cut all the trees down in your neighborhood to harness all that wind and make sure there are no more cloudy days for solar. Until you Einstein come up with a better way I say take a piece of coal and shove it up you azz.
