Ahhh! An activist action for the liberal enviro-whackos that has multiple benefits!
1.) Shut down an evil energy producing, polluting coal mine
2.) Deny profits to some evil energy conglomerate.
3.) Save the habitat of the Horned European Blowfly
4.) Puts people out of work, hurts unemployment figures
5.) Puts people out of work, makes them more dependent on the government
6.) Increases American dependency on foreign energy sources
What more could they ask for?
You missed "puts people OF COLOR (standard Lib classification for Native Americans) out of work"
