"When Walmart has roof damage from a storm, THEY don't send me a bill for it's repair!!"

In a sense Walmart DOES send yo the bill! Storm damage would be reflected in operational costs and end up being covered by the items they sell. Like AEP those costs are paid by the consumer!

Well, I guess if it isn't a "War on Coal", then it must be Global Warming that is the reason these jobs have been cut.

I hear Mr. "Go Green" Algore sold his cable tv network "Current" to none other than Al Jazeera. A company that is owned and operated by Middle East oil money.

What Al meant by "Going Green" was grab as much CASH as you can and sell out. To big oil, how about that, the very same people that are destroying the planet, according to him.

But no War on Coal. Lol

Why should a utility company be allowed to charge it's customers for THEIR storm damage?

When Walmart has roof damage from a storm, THEY don't send me a bill for it's repair!!

AEP is a BUSINESS therefore these repairs should be funded by AEPs PROFITS!!

Maybe if shathead liberals REALLY did some digging, you will find that the NEW anti Fracking movie with Matt Damon "The Promised Land" was financed by MidEast Oil Sheiks trying to discredit NG and keep Oil alive.

There IS a War on Coal, A War on NG, and a War on Petroleum by the self interests who make money on it.

And they USE useful Idiots like AutisticPimple and Imphat as stupid pawns.

"War on Coal" is terminology of the ignorant. Laughable really. Ok..I understand that the right-wing terminology...everything is a "war", and GOP love "war"...but the real "war" is on hurting and killing workers, and on destroying the environment. Anyone who is against these two...are just ignoramooses.

Wrat and Butthead, did you read "war on coal" in that article, or did you even read it? Can you read? Do you care? I didn't think so. Your continued existence is a waste of oxygen.
