When are people gonna start talking to the Feds like the activist do? Sanctuary cities flout federal immigration law and the Feds DONT send in the Airborne to enforce like they did in the South with integration so why should we listen to the law?

"Seek training and employment that has a future, or sit and wait for that unemployment check...either way, change is happening...is that change going to be positive for you personally, or will you sit and rot in hopes of the past? It's really up to you," acoustic portal.

Well stated and succinct. Now comes the childish wordplay from the flat earth society.

acousticportal "Go ahead, Troll, Mike...hang on to a dying industry..."

...said the liberal loon whose political party is KILLING that industry. To save Al Jazeera Gore's polar bears.

acousticportal "Seek training and employment that has a future, or sit and wait for that unemployment check..."

...said the sycophant of the party of extended unemployment and Big Government welfare programs...

You vote-buying, parasite-pandering leftists may win your War on Coal, acoustic, but unless your pixie dust and wishes energy replacement non-plan works out better than I expect it will you'll get to enjoy the fruits of your socialist utopia just like the rest of us. Enjoy the cold and dark. LOL

Go ahead, Troll, Mike...hang on to a dying industry, just like those who are still waiting to be called back to the steel mill and Fostoria Glass...it's not happening. Adapt and adjust, or die. It's that simple. Seek training and employment that has a future, or sit and wait for that unemployment check...either way, change is happening...is that change going to be positive for you personally, or will you sit and rot in hopes of the past? It's really up to you.

The replacement of your electric meter with a Smart meter will enable real time electricity pricing. The Smart meter will not only bill you for the electricity that you use it will also bill you on it's availability.

You are so right, BigMike. But the Demorat Party takes care of it's parasitic voter base by boosting welfare and food stamps and tax credits and housing subsidies and unemployment and all those other forms of wealth-spreading to minimize the impact of such business-crushing measures so the conservative middle class bear the brunt of its socialist agenda.

If you vote for another Demorat in your life, no crying when the economic pain hits YOU, because YOU built that.

Trollslayer, This go's beyond WV and it's coal miners, it will impact the entire population and lower the standard of living of the majority of Americans. The 50% dependent on government will become the 65-70%.

What about jobs? Fugettabout it.

That's inspiring, acoustic. Maybe you can feed those pixie dust and wishes to starving West Virginia families when you bankrupt the coal industries that have reliably provided them with employment income for a century.

Derrrrr......

"GE’s business is generators. Since wind energy is variable and intermittent in output due to the vagaries of weather, one cannot simply replace 1,000MW of baseload coal generation with 1,000MW of wind generation.

Replacing such a coal plant with wind generation requires one to construct approximately 1,000MW of gas-fired generation to balance and backup wind’s erratic output. For GE that is win-win. They get to sell 2MW of new generation to replace 1MW of perfectly serviceable coal generation being prematurely retired by EPA regulations.

But even better for GE is the fact that wind turbines last 20 years- at best. Thus, over the 60 year life of a typical coal plant, not only do ratepayers need to pay for a new 1,000MW (GE) gas generator, they are also compelled to buy 1,000 MW of GE wind turbines AND replace them at least two more times."

(Master Resource 5/30/14)

Who is going to finance all of this? You are.

Time for WV, my beloved home state, to dig itself out of the mounds of coal dust and filth, and embrace this opportunity to develop and deliver cleaner energy, for all of life on earth. It's so refreshing and inspiring to see this kind of change taking place, and so many supporting it, for us, and for our children.

" There is clean coal technology available. Is it more expensive? Sure it is. Will it cut into profits? Sure it will. Tough! Don't try to just pass it on to the consumers. Typical capitalist response."

So simple, why didn't I think of that!

What economic theory is this brilliant revelation based upon?

Maybe you should have been put in charge of health care reform!

caltransplant you are a clueless, 'whistling past the graveyard', idiot.

Nor can I help from laughing that you are nothing but a bullhorn with no facts.........only some unjustified hate for the President and the country. You should move with Rushbo..........wait.......he said he would move.......he's still here. Typical right wing NUT JOBS!
