I am going to disregard<quoted text>
Again an ignorant ass can't read!!"That question" has been answered several times. The GD INSPECTOR told him to build the crib. If you cannot read and comprehend, what are you trying to do? I see that you can spell, but damned if you have any level of comprehension. I will say it one more time. The new foreman had timbered off and dangered off an entire break because HE (himself, the foreman) suspected a loose rock was going to fall. The GD INSPECTOR came inside later the same morning and told told him that HE (The arrogant inspector) wanted a crib built underneath the suspect roof. FOOL!! Did you understand that, IDIOT?? If not, I know a six year old who can explain it to you after reading it only ONE TIME! The mine, as I said before was NEAR one of my mines. Did you loose that somewhere in translation? Your ignorance is more tiring than my career in coal mining. And another thing, fool. Where did you read that the 'inspector' ever wrote a violation?? If you cannot comprehend, then why are you attempting to discuss an issue? Your utter stupidity has caused me to resort to childish name calling, but I have NEVER seen such ignorance in my entire life! If you tell me that you did NOT read all my posts then I will understand your ignorance, but I think you have read and are just dense between the ears.
your disrespectful sinful and vulgar name calling as I refuse to ever get on that level. I am much better than that. I am just trying to comprehend what happened. Here are my questions:
1. If what the foreman had timbered off the entire break;and done it correctly and up to code; why did the inspector tell him to build a crib.
2. If no violation existed and, no violation was going to be written, why did the young man do what the inspector told him to do.
If you are a tired OLD miner, you really should be more concerned for your soul than be calling people a "fool". You do that is a sin don't you.
I lost a family member in a mining accident. I know the tragedy of mining. He was in his early 30's. It was during a holiday and he was told to perform a procedure, by a money hungry operator, that was very dangerous. To keep his job he done it. It cost him his life. Had MSHA been inspecting that day, this death would have not occurred. So, you are preaching to the choir on this one. If it were not for Federal Regulations most of the operators who operate these little dog hole, water filled mines would have men killed daily. Most mines of these small holes are contract miners for larger companies and $$$$$$$$ are the only thing the operator is concerned about. MSHA would have fired this inspector if he had told this young man to build a crib for no reason. MSHA has obviously written you several violations. You obviously have tried to bribe the inspectors at one time and now things aren't working out so well for you. Give it up! Either mine coal according to law
or; get out of the coal business. You know the cost of mining when you got into it. You knew the regulations when you opened a mine.
If you are broke, so be it. You are not the first and you will not be the last. Quit blaming everyone else for your problems. Do it right and you will have no problems.
