I notice on the helmet of the coal worker in the picture above there is a sticker that says "I pledge to vote coal." I wonder who his Union is telling him to vote for?

The UMWA has said that it won't be endorsing any presidential candidate this election season. Being a union, they WON'T endorse a Republican, no matter what. Since Obamao has been so disastrous (BY DESIGN) for the coal miners, they won't endorse him for fear of the miners actually deciding to elect REAL miners to head up the union instead of one Union hack after another.

If voters knew how America's economy would look after two terms of President Barack Obama's administration, Mitt Romney would win in a landslide.

In the 2008 campaign, President Obama told the San Francisco Chronicle that the “notion of no coal...is an illusion.” He noted that he favors a cap-and-trade system “[s]o if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can. It’s just that it will bankrupt them because they’re going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted.”

While Obama did not get to implement cap-and-trade, he found other ways to shut down coal...
