one day when eastern ky, west virginia, pennsylvania, virginia, west ky, and others are out of business please don't complain because it is too late. what will our people do? do these parts of the country become a third world working for minimum wage. all of the coal severance tax money sent to all parts of the state will stop and i'm sure n ky, lousiville, and others will cry not because of lack of work for the miners!

I don't classify myself as a "treehugger", but I do work and do not receive government help, thankfully. If you ever came up to me and attempted to take anything, I'd punch you in the throat. I'd advise you to keep your hands to yourself.
