i don't think anyone supports families losing jobs or being driven into poverty. people are however concerned about global warming and all of the negative environmental effects it is having on us. Coal is not very clean lol<quoted text>
I'm not "getting over" anything you cretin. We have more coal than we do oil in the U.S., hundreds of years, the tech is there for clean coal plants already in place. So you support all these families here losing their financial independence/jobs and also the right to defend themselves? To just "get over it" and suckle at King Obama's teet while he bankrupts and ruins the country? WE can tell who you voted for You're a complete moron and don't deserve to call yourself an American, let alone a West Virginian. It's cowardly "progressives" like you who need to move to North Korea then re-evaluate the tripe you just let drool out of your mouth.
Our community is riddled with enough poverty, what would it be like if we lost all of the coal mining jobs in Southern WV? We need to find another means of production FAST! We need financial independence from the coal companies. If you want to keep coal around, we should at least take it and make our own $$$ let's get rich!!
