Some people make comments, and have no idea what
is going on. If you don't know anything about

democrats run that state the majority of the time?
THE mines are run by the unions and they are

by the fact you are going to vote democratic.
Please speak what you know about and not by what
rumors you are wanting to throw out there...
If you want to keep your jobs in WV, vot democrat.

The Bush regime did not believe in any type of regulation and the mine disaster in W.V. and the
catastrophic oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico proved it.

The mine owners and the oil drillers were in bed with Bush.

The union does not run the mines around here. massey just about did away with the union. If they was union the men at the upperbig branch mines would still be here with us today.
