The ideologues at EPA and Dept. of Energy are not only contracting the American economy with their bizarre war on carbon energy sources but as those pictures show, are creating real misery. If Obama is defeated and they are thrown out of office, they themselves will not experience the hardship those miners and their families are now knowing. They will simply return to their tenured positions at largely tax supported universities or tax sheltered foundations.

Coal miners salt of the earth. Every last one will help us throw Obama out on his ass. Mitt will win Ohio

This is the war between the private productive sector and the parasitical public sector

It will boil down to this: Obama will sweep...

* Hollywood
* The faculty lounges
* The government unions
* The ghettos & barrios
* The newsrooms and...
* The bath houses

Romney & Ryan win everything else. Except for the inactive die-hard conservatives admiring their principles.

Landslide 2012!

It’s not just coal miners but construction workers as well who’ve had it up to here with illegals taking their jobs, even though the wack jobs running the construction unions are ultra-leftists (and corrupt as shiet), the workers themselves are not and are ready to boot Obama out on his ASS!

Romney can make a good dent in the unemployment numbers simply by putting the coal miners and oil field workers back to work. This in itself would be a huge boost to the American economy. After that Romney needs to fire a bunch of meddling and unproductive government bureaucrats.

Are you sure about CA? :)

Today in a grocery store I saw some guy wearing a Kerry-Edwards T-shirt. No joke. Last weekend I saw someone else wearing a "Hillary" T-shirt.

Maybe a bunch of Dems are going to conduct their own private write-in campaigns.

It may be interesting to note that the Chicago Climate Exchange in spite of its hype, is a veritable rat’s nest of cronyism. The largest shareholder in the Exchange is Goldman Sachs. Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley is its honorary chairman, The Joyce Foundation, which funded the Exchange also funded money for John Ayers’ Chicago School Initiatives. John is the brother of William Ayers.] [In 2000 and 2001, while Barack Obama served as a board member for a Chicago-based charitable foundation, he helped to fund a pioneering carbon trading exchange that is likely to fill a critical role in the controversial cap-and-trade carbon reduction scheme that President Obama is now trying to push rapidly through Congress.] Big Red Bow (#19) [In 1997, Strong went on to accept from Tongsun Park, who was found guilty of illegally acting as an Iraqi agent, $1 million from Saddam Hussein, which was invested in Cordex Petroleum Inc., a company he owned with his son, Fred.] [In 1953 Strong was hired out of the UN Security section and sent to Kenya by the Sidley Austin law firm acting for New York-based Rockefeller Family trusts which now handle university endowment funds and $55 trillion in the Carbon Disclosure Project.] “The social experiment in China under Chairman Moa’s leadership is one of the most important and successful in human history.” ~ David Rockefeller scary stuff and more at links, in connecting links, and threads..

These were some of the comments - thanks for suggesting freepers check them out - interesting stuff...

Question:

How many coal mines in IL, PA, OH?

If there are enough miners and their relatives to overcome the corruption votes in Chicago, Philadelphia and Cleveland, Romney-Ryan might just take them.......

Not sure I agree with that. It's not entirely wrong either though. However, I doubt we will get anywheres near the cast of micreants we currently have in the White House.

More of these ideologues are going to feel it alright. When the coal mines are shuttered and refineries shut down forcing energy costs to soar . . . just who do you think is going to pay for the increase in energy costs for folks (elderly/disabled) on fixed incomes? What about all the folks relying on public assistance?

Don’t folks voting for Obama and his suicidal plans realize these policies are going to hurt them directly, for their own needs in addition to the needs of those who rely on our taxes to cover their benefits? How can they be so blind?

Yes there are tons of construction workers and they spend most of their days protesting outside construction sites that have hired illegals, at least here in New York city where I unfortunately live. And it’s not just construction, but road work and bridge repair, all taken over by illegals.

Some day I gotta take pictures of this stuff, it’s pathetic. Mexicans doing construction with USA citizens standing outside unemployed. And if that doesn’t boil your blood enough, right near me is the welfare office 33-00 Northern blvd. in Queens. Everyday it’s an around the block line of Mexicans getting their food stamps. So not only are they stealing jobs, they are also stealing taxes which they do not pay all courtesy of the pond scum liberals that the fools around here keep electing.

I saw the same thing here in Chicago. A couple of years back there was more road work than usual (there is always lots of road work here) and it seemed that most of the laborers were Mexican. Very few Blacks, yet these fools still vote as the Unions say even though it is killing them.

Obama is waging a one coast war on coal. While Obama wages war on the privately owned and operated coal mines in the East, he is promoting the sub-bituminous coal in the Powder River Basin in the West, which is on federally leased land, mostly owned by Indian tribes.

The rest of the Obama coal plan involves shifting the center of shipping away from the Mississippi to the West coast, where the natural resources, grain and soy beans, can be more easily shipped to Asia. Some of the crony partners in the scheme are Warren Buffet, who owns BNSF, Goldman Sachs, which owns a controlling share of CARRIX, which operates terminals, SSA, the stevedoring company that happens to employ Patty Murray’s husband, and Trumpka, as current head of the AFL and former head of the United Mine Workers.

The sub-bituminous coal is headed for China and other developing countries, where the manufacturing and jobs will take place. So, Obama is not just shipping out the natural resources that he won’t let US companies use, he is shipping out the manufacturing jobs, as well.

Sunoco and Conoco did shut down refineries in the Philadelphia area, but they are still operating, or will be when they are updated and re-built. DELTA airlines bought the CONOCO refinery and are going to refine their own fuel. The SUNOCO refinery was bought by an investment group and will be re-furbished, updated and supplied with crude from an old pipeline from the midwest, that will also be refurbished.

A group of Texas investors bought the SUNOCO marketing end of the business and were going to sell gas from that new refinery in Texas, that was recently enlarged, refurbished and modernized to refine ANY type of oil. Now the investors, which include George Bush, are have agreed to market the new SUNOCO gas, instead. It’s a great deal, not only for the Philadelphia region, but for the whole country. The oil industry is moving forward, revamping, and changing to get past the political hurdles that Obama has been putting in their way.

The oil and gas industry has the potential to pull this country out of the economic slump, if the government would just get out of the way. As for the coal, I am afraid that coal is going the way of the vinyl record. Gas is now a cheaper source of power and the environmentalists have already driven out most of the manufacturing.
