Oh and I'm not sure if others are seeing the Obama Coal ad that shows coal miners on a stage for a rally and then claims:

1) They were forced to go
2) Would receive no pay
3) Mine permanently shut down due to the rally

What I have been able to learn:

1) The meeting was mandatory but nobody was forced to go
2) The rally was considered a political event and there are laws on the books that you cannot pay people to go to political rallies
3) The mine WAS shut down, but just for that day due to safety and security reasons. The mine also shuts down due to weather and power outages (power outages at a coal mine? interesting).

Coal Miner’s Donor

Coal miners lost pay when Mitt Romney visited their mine to promote coal jobs

The owners of the Ohio mines are big Republican supporters right now because Obama and Biden have declared war on coal. And what is the big difference between some of what happened above and what happens at EVERY Union rally?

Brilliant, Ohio coal plant mine[*] closes: guess why?

the regimes war on coal is one of the biggest stories out there and its all bullsh_t.

By now every one should know that clean fired coal plants are readily available and on on line. To start a war on coal and use phony stats just to close them down is nothing more than communism at work. Destroy capitalism and instal Socialism, Marxism, Communism. Its all crap and no one is talking about it.
