Where do the saddest people in America live?
The residents of many of America’s red states are feeling decidedly blue, according to a report issued this week (PDF) by research firms Gallup and Healthways. The annual well-being report found that there’s a sadness cluster made up of 10 contiguous states in the Midwest and South.
Citizens of Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, West Virginia, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana and Oklahoma scored poorly for multiple factors that affect well-being, including emotional health, work environment, physical health, healthy behaviors, and access to food, shelter and health care.
Respondents in the saddest states scored especially poorly for physical health and healthy behaviors. In fact, many of these states lead the nation in incidence of diabetes, obesity and other metabolic disorders. These respondents also were more likely to smoke, exercise infrequently, and consume few fruits and vegetables. In addition, they reported more worry, sadness, anger and stress than did residents of happier states.
So, with our saddest citizens clustered in the South and Midwest, where are the shiny, happy people? According to the report, the states where citizens enjoy the greatest sense of well-being are Hawaii, Colorado, Minnesota, Utah, Vermont, Montana, New Hampshire, Nebraska, Iowa and Massachusetts.

Rove, RNC and GOP bigwigs rig the rules against the right
By Brent Budowsky - 03/19/13 09:57 AM ET

For insider Republican bigwigs, 2013 is the year of the double deal. They pay homage to CPAC while they write rules for the 2016 presidential campaign designed to fix the game against conservatives whose issues they claim to champion. The new "blueprint" from the Republican National Committee should be read with a calculator, an abacus and a copy of Machiavelli's The Prince to understand that the real blueprint is to freeze out insurgent conservatives (does Rand Paul ring a bell?) and lock in establishment Republicans (does Bush 45 ring a bell?) at the presidential campaign level. Will we soon read a headline on Drudge revealing "GOP insider fix exposed?"

The plan is to shorten the 2016 campaign, to compress 2016 into rapid-fire battles, to end or limit caucuses that help insurgents, and to dramatically cut down the number of debates. Taken together, these actions give a great advantage to establishment candidates with better-known names and access to lots of money. Couple this with the ubiquitous Karl Rove (the power-mad insider whose recent record is worse than the defunct Intrade) who is raising the big dough for the favored friends of the bigwig elites, and we find a game that is being fixed and a deck that is being stacked.

Bad news for the bigwigs — they will not trigger an insider triumph, they will trigger an all-out GOP civil war when grassroots conservatives realize they are the target of a nefarious (for them) fix.

This will lead to what the media will call, and I am coining a phrase here, "the battle of the GOP super-PACS" as the big buck Rovians battle the big bucks right (as in Adelson and Koch) for ownership of the 2016 nomination.

Will this intra-party coup d'etat from the GOP establishment work? Probably not. The GOP base will not take kindly to those who address the CPAC meeting with friendly words as Brutus once addressed Caesar. Stacked-deck primaries can backfire if an insurgent catches fire early. The money advantage for GOP insiders will mean nothing unless Messrs. Koch and Adelson et. al. buy into the fix, which is unlikely.

My guess is that the word got out too soon. The conservative base will figure out the fix and move to bring the demise of this baby before it leaves the crib, leaving chastened insiders to give speeches at next year's CPAC event wearing trench coats and gloves and saying: "don't blame me, the other guy did it".

What is Mountain Top Removal Mining?
Mountaintop removal / valley fill coal mining (MTR) has been called strip mining on steroids. One author says the process should be more accurately named: mountain range removal.

Mountaintop removal /valley fill mining annihilates ecosystems, transforming some of the most biologically diverse temperate forests in the world into biologically barren moonscapes.

Ashley Judd on Mountaintop Removal Coal Mining
Click on the image to view Ashley Judd's speech on Sierra's Club Web site.

Mountaintop removal coal mining really strikes a nerve with celebrity Ashley Judd, who grew up in the middle of the Appalachian mountains in Kentucky. In response, Judd teams up with the Sierra Club in a new video that details to the Obama Administration why our nation should put an end to mountaintop removal coal mining."I grew up in Kentucky, and like so many Appalachians, just seeing our beautiful mountains and valleys tells me I am home," Judd said in the recent video. "Our mountains are our heritage and our legacy to future generations. But big coal companies are using explosives to literally blow the tops off the mountains, extract the coal, and destroy Appalachia."

The Sierra Club has geared up its oppostion to the practice since a panel of federal judges recently allowed the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to enable further mountaintop removal coal mining. It's feared that the recent opinion has set a precedent for future courts to allow new permits for mountaintop removal coal mining operations, which could destroy portions of the Appalachian Mountains by turning them into moon-like landscapes. In an effort to avert such a disaster, Judd urges the new Administration to ban mountaintop removal coal mining before it destroys all the mountains that she holds near and dear.
What is Mountaintop Removal Coal Mining?Companies practicing mountaintop removal literally blow up mountains and fill nearby valleys and streams with waste rock, which can ruin entire watersheds and the water supplies of nearby communities.

According to Mountain Justice, mountaintop removal coal mining can annihilate entire ecosystems and has already transformed some of the most biologically diverse temperate forests in the world into biologically barren moonscapes.

Mountaintop-removal mining is devastating Appalachia, but residents are fighting back

I guess since you don't live there or know what it is all about you ASSume fauxbox pundits know what they are talking about as usual. I agree 100% with her. That area has gone down for years, a beautiful area in Eastern Kentucky and West Virginia looking like a war zone. A real shame for anyone who loves the mountains, hills, and trees in Kentucky. Only a repuke lemming loser wouldn't get that! You idiots need to educate yourself.

It's not the coal...it's the method.$$$$$ more important than human lives, environment, clean air/water, and personal property....TYPICAL REPUKE WAY!

Let's see what grandrand was saying about the KY mountain top removal as he travelled through a town he couldn't remember and thought it was named after the Dukes of Hazard. lmao He didn't care about those people, just a vote and nothing more:

Rand Paul: Controversial Mountaintop Removal Coal Mining Isn’t So Bad — It Enhances The Land!

July 29, 2010

In a wide-ranging profile due out in next month’s issue of Details, Kentucky’s Republican nominee for Senate, Rand Paul, stands up for all the good things the controversial practice of mountain top-removal mining can do for the environment. Despite warnings from conservationists that blowing the tops off of mountains to get the precious, precious coal underneath can have a seriously negative impact on the surrounding land, Paul says that when you really stop to think about it, losing those mountain tops is actually a net positive.

Paul believes mountaintop removal just needs a little rebranding.“I think they should name it something better,” he says.“The top ends up flatter, but we’re not talking about Mount Everest. We’re talking about these little knobby hills that are everywhere out here. And I’ve seen the reclaimed lands. One of them is 800 acres, with a sports complex on it, elk roaming, covered in grass.” Most people, he continues,“would say the land is of enhanced value, because now you can build on it.”

Paul can’t seem to remember why the area is important to Kentucky:

Something about Harlan has lodged itself in my brain the way a shard of barbecue gets stuck in one’s teeth, and I’ve asked Paul for help.“I don’t know,” he says in an elusive accent that’s not quite southern and not quite not-southern. The town of Hazard is nearby, he notes:“It’s famous for, like, The Dukes of Hazzard.”

Mountaintop removal mining (which, as Details reporter Jonathan Miles reports, has been called “the greatest environmental tragedy ever to befall our nation” by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.)

http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/2010/07/ra...

Mountaintop removal mining

Peer-reviewed studies show that mountaintop mining has serious environmental impacts, including loss of biodiversity and toxification of watersheds, that mitigation practices cannot successfully address.[5] There are also adverse human health impacts which result from contact with affected streams or exposure to airborne toxins and dust.[5]
Published studies also show a high potential for human health impacts. These may result from contact with streams or exposure to airborne toxins and dust. Adult hospitalization for chronic pulmonary disorders and hypertension are elevated as a result of county-level coal production. Rates of mortality, lung cancer, as well as chronic heart, lung and kidney disease are also increased.[5] A 2011 study found that counties in and near mountaintop mining areas had higher rates of birth defects for five out of six types of birth defects, including circulatory/respiratory, musculoskeletal, central nervous system, gastrointestinal, and urogenital defects. These defect rates were more pronounced in the most recent period studied, suggesting the health effects of mountaintop mining-related air and water contamination may be cumulative.[34] Another 2011 study found "the odds for reporting cancer were twice as high in the mountaintop mining environment compared to the non mining environment in ways not explained by age, sex, smoking, occupational exposure, or family cancer history.”[35]
