Plenty of shale oil jobs available. I suggest the coal workers get off their asses and head for fracking territory.

Are you joking?? Get off their asses? They were coal miners until their asshole boss decided to throw a temper tantrum and move them from employed to unemployed.
Except that the Obama administration now has fracking squarely within their sights...and, even as we speak, are preparing regulations that will make it economically impossible.
Those jobs aren't ever going to happen. Not after the election last Tuesday.
How long do you think it will be before the Feds and their environmentalist buddies put a clamp on production up in North Dakota?
Two things wrong with your post. Coal mining is not a lazy man's job - they could teach most of us a bit about getting off our asses. The gov't just announced it's starting to shut down areas that were designated for shale oil.
