In the northeast the Molly McGuires evolved due to the company stores and company practices.

Only coal crackers know the lives of the breaker boys,
Common to joe Bidens region of Scranton patch ....

Joe never worked a day in his life by the way,

Coal strikes were common,
I was taught First Aid by a wonderful man, a community leader,
Jock Yablonski....

I also met John L Lewis, and watched Tony Boyle rot in prison...

There's only one way to win,

Allowing the tyranical boy king wannabe ho'bama to bankrupt the coal industry will have dire far reaching unintended consequences, as usual. A big jump in energy costs will force a whole new round of US industries off shoring themselves. New massive unemployment,bigger trade imbalances, middle class energy costs skyrocketing, etc., etc.

On the water report, watch the detect level. That is the level that poisons are detected at. Like the action level for lead in Ct. is 0.015, yet detect levels are at 2.5 for some tests. I have had private tests cost me $1,000.00 and got that cr@p since the state gives the standards to the labs. It's also EPA standards. On the coal, remember Boone Pickens? He was on T.V. a lot before the first obama election talking about how natural gas was the new nation saver, now fracking is out of control. I think that is one of the people that own the president. I see Carter as the last real president. I also see Mlakin and big oil owning obama. Where did my country go?
