Coal mining country struggles under Obama

BEALSVILLE, Ohio — In Obama’s drive to promote more clean energy, he has left the U.S. coal industry literally in the dust.

Coal miners and coal executives alike are upset at the recent push for environmental regulations that will cripple, if not put an end, to the entire coal mining industry. All this in the name of clean energy, which has yet to be proven to be sustainable and a viable source.

For many in America’s coal country, ranging from Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania, it is a way of life. It is a lifestyle that has passed on from generation to generation. Many go in knowing the dangers and continue to do so as long as there is coal to mine and mouths to feed.

The coal-mining state of West Virginia voted for Mitt Romney in the last election because of Obama’s strict environmental policies. However, Pennsylvania and Ohio voted for Obama, and now, they might be feeling the pinch as coal mining declines under stringent regulatory policies by Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

    Just wanted to know how the Global Warming is working on the East Coast? Do you think someone other than the government has comtrol of what is really taking place? Could it be the good Lord who created everything? Wake up everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. What really confuses me is , how did Obama win these states ? What is wrong with Americans who would knowingly support a president who willfully destroys their fellow Americans lives , as Obama has been proven to do ? How can Americans not understand how the loss of these good paying jobs would affect them , theirselves ??? There is seriously some major dumbed down Americans who would vote for charisma and social issues over the economy !

    We are dealing with people who get their news only from the old major media. Most of them have no idea of what is really going on. Furthermore, the major media tells them that the alternate media is lying to them, so don't listen to them. The fact is, the major media has been lying to us for a long long time.
