Massy coal is what put mining business`s out of business.MSHA has been doing the same thing it has always done for years.Massey on the other hand?They had to have 400 and 500 feet a shift at every mine when they were running.Now the coal market has all it`s reserves full for years to come and they can switch over to natural gas.Where did everyone think they were putting all that coal?There was no way it was used over that time frame.They did nt export.So that only leaves reserves open and as cheap as it was sold?Everyone and there hairy lipped granny bought as much as they could get and keep legally and safely by law!There is where your jobs went!

Nobody ever wants to believe the most obvious.Greed is always the very thing that starts and ends the bestthings.Think real hard.Everytime something does good.They always make do bigger,better and faster.The end result is always a complete stop!

I really don t think there sole intention was to put coal out of business?But big Don is a very smart man and I would bet he forseen the day when coal was going to be outlawed as much as possible in this country.He took that knowledge and ran with it like any Captain of Industry would do.The end result was too much,too fast and that all folks!!

its just business people. I worked for massey and saw the ways they do. Any company is gonna try to cut expenses any way possible. But when safety is a concern then, it goes beyond the company and the agency aforementioned. MSHA was at UBB the morning before the explosion. If conditions were so bad then, they sould have been issued a D-order. the rest is history. And of those 29 men that died, They had a choice, and they chose it. I had a choice and I made it back in 1998 when I left massey. Havent been back in a coal mine since. As for MSHA they are gonna pin the blame on whoever wherever before they take any credit for anything as drstic as UBB.

now heres some one who knows mining..youre exactly right!! msha is gonna try to pin whatever on anything or anyone they can but UBB explosion was msha's fault 100% all they was worried about like any other time and that's to write a ticket and collect more for the tickets they write and they fooled around a let a disaster happen like a bunch of dumb f!@K$ that they are. anyone who knows or has worked in the mining business knows msha is not about safety its all about control and making money off the coal operations. the money tickets that they write these coal companys goes to the U.S.TREASURE... think about it the gov makes more money from coal than anyone that's why I cant understand why they are against it so much.

Please tell me when the government ever laid someone off?

The USPS is loosing millions of dollars and our great politicians haven't the sense to cut the loss. Any private business person would have cut the cord years ago.

Government sucks and those in government feeding them have destroyed the U.S.A.

Hard working former miners my ass 99% of mine inspectors were lazy ass's when they were employed with a company notice I said employed not work. that's why most got inspector jobs was because they were sorry ass's before that's why a lot of them gets those jobs because they intend on being sorry ass's. that's a fact.

Actually "our great politicians" are the reason that the usps is swimming in red.

it's the Postal Service that’s currently bailing out the U.S. government. Politicians have been raiding Postal Service revenues for years, using them to make the federal deficit appear smaller than it really is. The fiscal gyrations are so twisted that the Postal Service is right now forced to pre-pay health care benefits for employees the agency hasn't even hired yet — in fact, for many future employees who haven't even been born yet — all to artificially shrink the federal deficit.

It's these crushing accounting tricks, not the cost of delivering mail, that has pushed this 200-year-old institution to the brink.
