I dont hang out all night on silly topix like you lib/dem/queers do, but the quote was...."you can open up a coalmine, but we're gonna bankrupt it"

You heard it....it was along the same lines as "Well Joe,(the plumber) we're gonna spread the wealth around" and " If you've got a business, you didn't build that, somebody else made that happen" and when he was talking to the russian spy " I'll be more flexible after the election"

You lib/dem/queers really have to work hard to defend him, but it's working....I hope you 47% ers enjoy the country as it goes down in flames, thanks to your stupidity and hero worship.

That just means it past time we made it an illegal industry, just like we did with other destructive practices.

What other legal industries have you lib/dem/queers ruined? What about the hundreds of thousands of people employed in that industry?

They'll have to find jobs where they DON'T completely destroy the environment.

Thoughout our history we looked the other way as companies dumped trillions of tons of pollutants into our lakes & rivers and onto the land and into the air, all in the name of jobs. Nearly every river & lake east of the Mississippi rive has signs warning people not to eat the fish. Millions of acres of land are uninhabitable because of decades of unregulated pollution. There are thousands of superfund sites across the country that will NEVER be cleaned up.

Just one example from my own state- the old Packard plant in Detroit has sat empty for over 50 years because the site is so polluted the buildings can't even be demolished because of the risk of contamination.

Of course my favorite is when the Cuyahoga river actually caught fire & exploded because of all the pollution dumped into it.

All for a few jobs.

NEWSFLASH- some jobs simply aren't worth the damage they cause.
