OBAMA REGULATIONS KILL OHIO COAL MINE, HUNDREDS OF JOBS WIPED OUT
human events ^ | august 1, 2012 | John Hayward

The OhioAmerican Energy company announced it would close its coal mine near Brilliant, Ohio on Tuesday. There is no question whatsoever about the reason for the shutdown, because the company made it abundantly clear in their press release, which I am reproducing in full below. President Obama will be campaigning in Ohio on Wednesday; perhaps someone will present him with a copy of this letter and ask for his thoughts.

———-

OhioAmerican Energy, Inc. (“OhioAmerican”), a Subsidiary of Murray Energy Corporation (“Murray Energy”), today announced the closure of its coal mining operations near Brilliant, Jefferson County, Ohio.

Regulatory actions by President Barack Obama and his appointees and followers were cited as the entire reason. “Mr. Obama has already destroyed 83,000 megawatts of coal-fired electricity generation in America,” said Mr. Michael T. W. Carey, Vice President of Government Affairs for Murray Energy. “Electric prices in the recent PJM Interconnection monthly auction were bid up 800 percent (8 times) for 2015-2016 because of this,” he added.

Can you guess who the United Mine Workers backed during the last election?

The green movement definitely cost Gore the White House (costing him West Virgina & Tennessee - either of which would have put him over the top regardless of Florida). It literally cost him his HOME STATE, and therefore the election.

Not even the unions are immune now from getting stabbed in the back by obama, except for government union employees. The private sector unions have served their purpose, and will be discarded accordingly. Public secor unions should be banned outright.

My mistake! I do not know why, but for some reason I was thinking this was happening in West Virginia? I must be losing my marbles?

Brilliant sits along the Ohio River, so West Virginia is only a couple of hundred yards away.

For some reason and in a round about manner it all has the smell of the implementation of UN-Agenda 21 so we all share in the misery equally.

Take away the massive voter fraud brought about during early voting and I believe that Ohio did NOT go for Obama. You could vote early (and often) in Ohio in 2008 with nothing but a copy of your utility bill as proof of eligibility. Technically, I could have voted 3 times in 3 different places in that election and I wasn't even an Ohio resident any more.

The miners are trivial compared to the union slaves in Cleveland.

The slaves are being courted by miners being fired.

GO DO! LTN
