The American coal industry is accusing the Obama administration of using the Environmental Protection Agency to end the use of coal despite the president's claim of having an "all of the above" energy policy.

"I would say this administration is certainly unfriendly towards coal," Wyo. Governor Matt Mead said. "And in my view it is a war on coal."

Mead proudly pointed out that Wyoming is currently the nation's largest coal producing state. "We export more coal than any other state by far...about 400 million tons per year. Wyoming coal produces a lot of electricity in this country," he

What did they expect? We all knew Obama's agenda when he was campaigning.

Americans were warned. But nooooooo. . ."hope and change", right?

It is time the coal workers and their unions stopped blindly supporting Democrats and started supporting the Republicans who support them.

The workers in the coal industry need to get out and vote (or in many cases the unemployed coal workers)!

The coal industry has had the worst records for safety, ruin of the environment, and danger to public health of any industry that I can think of. They are just unhappy that they don't control everything anymore.

"Obama has a war on coal. The question is why."

=============================================================

As painful as it might be to face the truth, BO is an enemy of the "Middle Class" and every policy that he has is consistent with this. If he was merely stupid, he would make an error occasionally which would be in our favor.

Most people who have ever lived on this planet have lived in bondage (as peasants under the authority of the nobility). America with its free market system allowed those who wanted to work smartly could take their talents to the next level. But socialism is not a movement of the downtrodden. It is a movement of the wealthy to use the downtrodden to eliminate the middle class.

Karl Marx wrote a ten point plank for taking over developed nations. Some of these include a central bank (Federal Reserve), a progressive income tax, public education, etc. America (BO hasn't acted alone) has adopted nearly 100% of the Marx platform. It's only a matter of time before they control everything
