I'd love to see them shut that down for good its stupid the rides aint worth crap and all the food sucks plus it screws up the traffic the hole week instead of wasting money on that they should put it on fixing these roads or make something for these kids to have something to do maybe it might keep them out of trouble.

They ought to make those rides,food and games free for miners and their families. After all, we are the ones that keep the lights and power on and it is supposed to be for us. Them check drawers, tree huggers and other gay types shouldn't be allowed into the coal festival.

You re right, however only union miners should get to go for free. Scabs aren't real miners. Scabs are replacement workers that cost the union big time. The new generation of scabs don,t know how to mine coal safe. Their dads were scabs, I don,t blame the new generation scabs, they don,t know any better. I blame their dads. Union miners is what made this country great, Union miners know how to run coal by the law. The boss says to the scab, jump, the scab jumps. The boss says to the scab , take a extra cut, the scab takes a extra cut. Thats how it works. Scabs are unsafe workers, thats a fact.

ive been mining coalfor 32 years. i can run any peace of equipment in or out of the mines. i beleive the coal festival should only be open to coal miners and there familyies. rather they be union or nonunion they still should be the onlye ones at the coal festival.

I find it hard to comprehend anything that you're saying, because your grammar is horrendous.

The Coal Festival is what it is.
It's a get together for local friends and families, allowing them a few days to have some fun and enjoy things they wouldn't normally enjoy.

That being said, it shouldn't be open to coal miners only.
Coal miners are just coal miners. I am one, and understand the type of work it is, but it doesn't make us more important than anyone else.
