Hey at least we almost lead the nation in something besides college football!
What is the Republican response to this wonderful news? Burn more coal!

Notice that this smear campaign states that the deaths are estimated. Porbably all a big liberal, clap trap lie.
The real problem with coal was when everbody burned it to heat their homes.
In the wintertime back in the time, the whole town would have thick smoke, soot and a bad sulphur smell. This went on for a few centuries. Electric and gas heat stopped all of this.
I can remember driving through Pittsburgh and choking on the smell and seeing the smog. All of this is gone now and so are the jobs. Steubenville,Youngstown, Akron and Canton were not much better.
The air and water are both ten times better than the decades of 1940,50 and 60. The Cuyahoga river hasn't caught on fire since 66.
You young people are so spoiled and indoctrinated at school with liberal, anti-business crap that you can't see or think straight.
Why do you think all the real jobs have gone to China? Its because of taxes and excessive government regulations.
Go back to your burger flipping job and enjoy it or finish college with a political science degree and manage a convenience store.

Excellent post - and spot on, especially about the indoctrination in our public schools. Pick up a new history textbook, if you are over 50 you will wonder what country produced the text. Re-writing of history is appalling, and scary.

Because the corps pay $1.00 an hour.

More people die from liberal progressive pollution. Airplanes and cars for example! Stop using them. Ride your bikes! Stop using toilet paper too! Scoot in the grass! Do not use any paper, save a tree. Carve a stone instead!
