The ones who fake back injuries to get oxycontins when some others are really hurt make me sick. The fakers are disgusting, and I report the ones who I know are faking their injuries.

I don't think that any of the politicians care about us in eastern Kentucky.

Yea, we have some politicians that are for coal. They are few and far between. They are not only in our state but neighbors as well. When it down to the basic facts, Nobody wants their power bill to be any more than what it already is!!!! Obama said he would "bankrupt" the coal industry and the power plants. This to fuel up his "green engery" plan, where he has put millions and millions are your tax dollars. Where is his green plan now? Reports everyday that they are bankrupt and going out of business. Where did your money go? In somebodies pocket!!!!! Not any of us!!!! Coal did not get a bail out nor tax dollars to "go clean"!!!!!! But we are still hanging on. Not green engery, they are leaving as quick as they can draw YOUR tax dollars out of their accounts!!!! Green plan people got rich, coal people got broke, and coal is still leading in the engery supply for our nation. It's like kicking a old faithful dog that has always been there for you!!!!!! Bail out auto industry, thats a JOKE!! If you can't have JOBS, than you will contiue to bail them out!!!! Maybe he needs to bail out the drug dealers, I don't think their business in so great, with the ecomony and all. Nobody has anything left to steal, so druggies can't get the pills!!!!! Time to think!!!!!

Help me I will like I promised in 2008 to a crowd out in California, help coal out. I told the environmental crowds that old nasty coal would be hurting. Look the votes are in big city states. Please work hard for me and blame old bush for everything.

your saying that now but when the coal jobs are gone you'll be lucky to have a job because when your unemployed toy can't pay for medical insurance which means no jobs here no jobs there, just wait and see

If they really want clean energy why don't the corp of engineers damn up buckhorn and cares fork lake, because they won't spend our tax money to put the generators in, it goes in the back of stock marketers pockets. That's where solar and wind is now, like back in the 70's coal was
