lets put it like this, my husband has lost wages now because of these tree huggers and if he losses any more, we will have no choice but to get a lawyer and demand the person who is over this bunch of stupid followers that don't know how to think on there own to pay back our wages. If any of you all want to really know why they are marching now and didn't march and will never march between the months of Sept-April is because the leader over this bunch is a teacher at a local college brain washing our childern and would never give up his wages for no cause.

Theyre paid a wage but its all a scam. After protesters go to jail the man claims he needs "bail money" to get them out so people all over the country send him money to pay some idiots 500 dollar bail. After his mountains of donations come in he has enough to bail them out and then some. People think the coal industry is the bad guy in this fight but they need to look at the other players in the game as well. Theres corruption on both sides of the fight people, you need to open your eyes and quit listening to all of the brain washed tree hugger cult!!!!

Just a bunch of twig pickers living off everything we earn. Get a life and a job!!

If all I had to do was make my way around the country and protest men and women's lively hoods, and yes this includes you stuttering Kennedy. Then I would jump on board. But I don't gave that luxury, "I" mine the coal that keeps you cool in the summer and warn in the winter. Get a life you bunch of fools!!

I agree, if alternative energy is the way to go why don't the great enviro Robert Kennedy have a windmill in his back yard and solar panels on that big house in Martha'a Vineyard and yes I have seen it. Some of us hillbillies get out of WV. He is a hypocrite as is all treehuggers. I expect since they are so against coal that they live off candlelight and ride bicycles everywhere. Electricity comes from coal and trees cut down can be replanted. We won't have to worry long, soon we will belong to China and they have NO regulations. Maybe we will be pumping out 6 million tons a year and all that carbon just like China. Why regulate one part of the world and let others do what they want. Do we not all share the ozone layer? They are the dumbest people on this planet.
