Obama's War Against America's Jobs Continues! Over 1,600 Coal Layoffs In the Last 48 Hours!
HOPEY-CHANGEY, SUCKERS....
The UMW actually SUPPORTED OBAMA, and gave him over a MILLION DOLLARS of members money in 2008. Talk about the chicken voting for Colonel Sanders!!

Alpha closing 8 mines, cutting 1,200 jobs in all
Coal producer Alpha Natural Resources said Tuesday it was cutting production by 16 million tons and eliminating 1,200 jobs companywide, laying off 400 workers immediately by closing mines in Virginia, West Virginia and Pennsylvania.

Patriot Coal cuts more output, jobs
Patriot Coal Corp., the coal producer that filed for bankruptcy protection earlier this year, is making additional production cuts at three mines in Central Appalachia and laying off 250 employees and contractors.

BOONE COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- More than 100 miners are set to be laid off in Boone County, according to the County Commission.

County Commissioner Mickey Brown says a Newton Energy Mine in Comfort will be laying off 116 employees starting Nov. 12.

Brown says a mine own by Patriot Coal in Wharton is also planning to layoff workers. There's no word yet on how many will be affected at that mine.

Obama's EPA hates coal - it's just not "green" enough for their yuppie asses.

Supporting the few remaining productive domestic jobs is not really their thing either.

Background of my avatar: [link to en.wikipedia.org]

The religion of submission cannot survive an open and honest discussion of its convoluted and foolish scriptures, its sexually perverted terrorist prophet, or its deceitful and demented god. When Western leaders become unified and resolute in their hostility to Islam's violent and ungodly beginnings, Muslims will flee the religion because they will be horrified by its endorsement of terrorism, mass murder, slave trading, plunder, kidnapping, and rape.

If Muslims & their apologists really want to cure "Islamophobia," here is an easy way. Focus their indignation on Muslims committing violent acts in the name of Islam, not on non-Muslims reporting on those acts.

Ecclesiastes 10:2 “The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left.”

We are all born ignorant, but it takes a lot of work to keep looking the other way to remain stupid.

Islam is not a race - the racism rant is lame, used by the intellectually lazy to derail the debate.

It boggles the mind the umwa supported 0bama when he tells them he will bancrupt coal.
It boggles the mind when Bush was called big oil with gas less the 2 bucks and we are over 4 bucks now without a wimper from the liberal media.
It boggles the mind when we have a president preaching redistribution of wealth, socialism, and still no outrage.
It boggles the mind 0bama isn't tarred in feather instead of running the greatest country ever known to mankind, into the ground.

They did so because he threw token support behind strip mining in West Virginia. Mostly because it's a Rockefeller owned state that no one gives to shits about. Another Bait and Switch situation, the favorite play of this administration.

"Alpha said it was closing four mines in West Virginia, three in Virginia and one in Pennsylvania. They are a mix of deep and surface mines, and all are non-union operations."

"Company spokesman Ted Pile said most of the displaced workers may eventually be rehired, either assigned to new jobs in other locations or replacing outside contractors. Only 150 workers in West Virginia and three in Pennsylvania will not have any other employment opportunities with the company, he said"

can somebody explain what the UMW has to do with this?

it also appears most of these laid-off employees will be rehired

No, its to steer everything to oil to support the dollar through petrodollar use worldwide. The Rockerfellas have a choice, make the billions of dollars they have amassed worthless or support the coal industry employment in this country ? Well guess what ? employment causes inflation too. Could it be that is why everything always goes back to oil ? Green, Alternative, coal, NG, Nuclear and fucking thing for that matter is bad except oil. A little telling is it not ?
