Well cry me a river, You inbred Gomers can still poke urine sisters and get the monthly welfare check.
Then there is always Meth, just make more and you guys wont care about a job.
Or do like the Whites, make a movie and show the world what porking your siblings will create.

Who cares about a ghost town? This disgusting crater needs to be purged anyways.
Maybe all the stupid hick coal mining hopefuls I went to school with will wish that they haven't replied: "HuR HuR I don't curr!" when informed that the industry wouldn't be around much longer.
Let the pillheads completely take over the city, so they can walk the streets like zombies.

It will be a ghost town with exception of those on a check and doctors to tend to them.. fewer schools working people must move away. High crime rate for those that can't afford to move anf can't get a job and can't sell there home due to value has droppedy. Sad but true.. I love this place

Most of you people on here have never worked a day in the mines now I am without a job and I loved working underground there is no job like it.anyway don't put a miner down we just tried to make a good life with what we had for our family,pppppp

Thank Obama and the EPA for taking your job plus the fact everybody else mines coal cheaper. You want to mine coal, move to where the coal business is still going strong. They been digging coal here for 100 years, the price per ton will fall below what we can mine it for in Eastern Ky.
We lost the steel industry and people moved on, we lost most of the Textile industry in the South and the electronics industry was destroyed by the late 60's. People moved on with their life. If all a man was made for was to mine coal then there is no hope but we been losing mining jobs for over 40 years, since they started mechanizing the mines and started stripping coal.
Coal is no different than any other industry that has changed or moved overseas, it's gone! Get over it and quit crying over a job that has been going away for years!

yea it angers me pretty bad too when i see people say how happy they are about these job losses.
they dont seem to understand these arent JOBS, these are humans
men with kids to feed.
i hope one day the market swings back toward coal and this could be a ploy on the part of coal operators to help that along.
the demand for coal may come back stronger than ever one day.
i hope its soon and you can get back to work.

I bet you believe in the Easter Bunny and Santa Clause also, just hang in there honey coal will come back to Pike County and a big ole rainbow will arc across the sky!
What color is the friggin sky in the world you live in?
#51 Nov 11, 2013
its the same color as yours, dark gray with clouds that have black dark, bleak, cold linings.
cold, so very cold.
that is what you are going to be here on earth with no coal to heat your life, and then in death you will probably be very very hot.
people like you have no reason to post on here.
you are nothing more than a hate filled bitter sick twisted heartless bastard.
#52 Nov 11, 2013
There you go honey, a new market for your coal! Sell it to the devil to stoke the fires of hell!
Don't worry if he gives you a big contract Obama and the EPA will kill it, probably with the same bill as they kill all export coal with...lol
#55 Nov 12, 2013
no, i am not, i just hate to see someone deliberatly wish bad lives off on innocent children, the children of out of work miners or anyone else who will suffer a job loss from this.
i dont understand how people can be so callous.
these men arent the problem, they are just men working for a paycheck, and you yourself are constantly on here putting people down for not working, etc.
and you have hundreds of men who were working, wanted to work, liked their jobs and were doing it to not be a deadbeat, not let their kids go without, they were doing what they could.
its not like anyone in the county or state has tried to bring about real industrial jobs to replace those lost, and that rate of pay for those men.
and then you have people like that coming on here laughing and making like its the best thing to happen to this area.
do they not ever look at what is being lost??
do they not see that our own people are having to leave here, that other business will suffer due to that?
is it funny?
seriously funny to see famalies fall apart over job losses?
this is what sickens me, the callous and the heartless who dont see that while its their right to want coal gone, it isnt a great thing when those men and their family suffer.
they see it as a great win for their political party, or a great win for the environment, they dont see children who cant understand why they have to move, or men who have to leave them to go out looking for a job.
i dont hate anyone, there are a few people i dislike, such as you. but im sure the feeling is mutual.

Nobody wished anything on the coal business, nobody wished anything bad on any coal miners family. Just stated the facts, coal is dying in Eastern Ky. Don't shoot the messenger, everybody that does not live under a rock already knows the reason Eastern Ky. Coal is going away and will not be back
You can be a drama queen and cry a friggin river and it won't make any difference. One more time, clean air standards after 2015 half the coal fired plants in the country will be shut down. What is left will not be burning East Ky. Coal, everybody else mines it cheaper. It ain't that anybody is wishing anything on anybody, you hang on to a coal bucket you will starve or go on the draw.
If you are serious about working find another line of work. If you have to mine coal, start moving to where they will still be able to mine it. That won't be anywhere in East Ky.
You can sit here and cry for the rest of your life, won't make no difference...coal is gone! Don't make no difference who is happy about it or who is sad about it, it's gone. Get over it!

Yea it just might be gone, and so will most of the young people, families packing up their children and leaving here to find work, taking the children out of the schools, there go some of the teaching jobs.
Uprooting their lives, selling or simply abandoning their homes, there goes some real estate jobs, banking jobs. Babysitting jobs, daycare, etc.
You may be right, coal may be gone forever, I cant say you arent right about it, but, it just seems like you and others are indifferent to the suffering it will bring for these families.
And so they go to work at Mcdonalds and, well, never mind, not going to keep arguing with Mr. Genius.
Enjoy your night.

No argument, the scenario you painted is right on the money, seen it in the late 50's and 60's and then again in the 80's. Not indifferent about it just like to be plain about it. If they don't start working on getting some other jobs in here the young people won't have anything but a very bleak future.
Until everybody understands, COAL AIN'T COMING BACK this time no one will get on these sorry politicians to work on getting a non coal economy. Everybody was indifferent about it when I had to leave the area for work but I didn't expect them to be anything one way or the other. Only difference is, the coal business will not pick back up this time. The people now are no different than the people that have been through this before. Only difference is the coal industry is gone for good this time. Blaming Obama, EPA, Western Coal, Natural Gas, whatever is a useless endeavor! It's gone, ain't coming back so people had better figure out how to make a living without it.

What does tobacco farming have to do with coal mining you ignorant boy? The world is changing for the worst. We have more stupid people per acre than ever before in history.
The bleeding heart liberals have ruined this country and they have their communist in chief leading their pathetic lives. Some people actually still support him. I'm sure it may have something to do with "entitlements" for the lazy; which seems to be the majority now.
Who's going to pay for it? They are sheep to the slaughter; trading freedoms for "obamaphones".
Lost jobs, condoning perverted lifestyles, killing babies, sorry ass hypocrites everywhere. The majority of the nation has lost their moral compass. The nation has never been so divided.
I would never wish ill will on anyone trying to make a living for their families. The working person is a dying breed. Actually people in this area should be pushing for coal to stay in business since that's how most of the morons are collecting "assistance" checks. Go's to show ones level of intelligence.
Hope most of your check goes on heating your shack after our electric bills through the roof. That will be hilarious, won't it? It's okay though, the Government will "take care of you".
But instead of getting too upset I usually come to peace with it because everything is playing out and there is nothing any man can do about it. Just do your best and take care of your family. Best we can do.

I don't know what perverted life styles and killing babies has to do with coal contracts or the price of coal. Really if perverted lifestyles or killing babies had anything to do with the coal economy we would have lost coal a long time ago.
Kind of a rambling nonsense post there pilgrim? There are a lot of people working in non coal jobs in the county and a lot of retired people. There will be some still working for years in the mines if they are not into mining steam coal for power generation. Western Ky. and southern Illinois has coal jobs and they are still hiring out west if you have to have a coal job. The ones on the draw are not in the coal market now or will be in the future so that is also a moot point.
Coal economy is changing to a non coal economy over time, not that big a deal, it happens, life goes on! There was life in this area before coal and there will be life after coal is gone. We go on!
