I bet the whaler's were not OK with John D. Rockefeller started making kerosene for pennies on the gallon, created a demand for it and distribution system and drove whale oil out of the market "the main source of lighting for the country back then.<quoted text>
So you are ok with the President destroying our economy?
It didn't make a dime's worth of difference what the whalers thought about ole John D. their whole existence went away within a 10 year period. You will see the same thing with coal. You will even see supposedly wise men investing in coal as it dies and investing primarily on emotion.
Go up to Millard and look at that brand new multimillion dollar coal facility that has not loaded out a coal train for months, millions of dollar facility, just built and sitting there idle. I bet the jerk that probably got fired over that brilliant idea said, well it's not my fault, Obama caused it!
