    I am so tired of people saying the war on coal only affects the coal miners jobs. In reality, it affects 8 to 10 times that amount. The effects trickle down through almost all jobs in surrounding area. They never mention the manufacturer of material and supplies used by the mining industry or the stem professions created by this industry. Rebuild shops, machine shops, transportation companies, hose, fitting, safety supply, steel, tires, rubber, rock dust, ventilation, heavy equiptment, inspection, railroad, motor shops, cable companies, etc. The list is endless. Why are those jobs never mentioned. They aren't mentioned because the people leading this war don't know the facts. They always talk about how dirty it is, maybe 50 years ago. Coal preparation has come a long way and is nothing like it use to be. It is now clean energy not like the way they pull gas out of the earth. The Marcellus shale gas and fracking process is far from clean, and very destructive to the environment. There are dangers in these process that are not even known yet. The jobs created by this are temporary and usually performed by worker that don't even live in the area. Coal built this country, now they have destroyed it's legacy. They keep shutting down the coal fired power plants, with promises of jobs. Coal fired plants employ 300 people and a gas fired power plant employ 12 and have very few jobs for people extracting the gas after the pipes and wells are set up. The coal industry on the other hand would be hard to count all the jobs, you have the power plant, the prep plant, the coal mine, this doesn't count the process of getting it from the mine to the prep plant, from prep to power. You would have trucking, trains, beltline, just these 3 forms of transportation create a huge amount of jobs. Not everyone is born with a silver spoon in their mouth and can be handed a education, so they can fill one of these invented, made up jobs, that really dont serve a purpose other than harassing hard working people that have made it possible for these millennial that believe everything they hear. America needs Coal mining! Don't believe everything you hear.

    anybody feel like angering bob? visit r/bobmurrayfacts and post something loose figurative and cannot be reasonably understood to convey facts, or if you are still spooked by his legal battles, just take a read.

    If HBO gets 1 cent per view on LVclip, the combined ad revenue of this video and the one on coal mining would produce about $205,000, which would cover most of the legal fees that came from the slapp suit. And that is only considering ad revenue on just the youtube videos.

    it's fascinating how many people enjoy the natural raw wild organic sensations mother Earth has to offer, but yet the majority of the population is not doing anything to demand from leaders that we improve upon and maintain the quality of standards pertaining to our air, water, foods, landscapes, working and living environment every day home products to be made manufactured mass-produced in a way that doesn't disrupt or diminish the quality of life, by leaving excess poisonous ,toxic, wastes behind you can't be pro-life if your doing business with outdated power sources, inferior materials, poisonous, toxic substances that have been scientifically classified, religiously verified as petrified death! Better known as coal, oil and gas the chemical industry. Which now that Donald Trump has been bought off and paid out by lifting sanctions and deregulating! Putting Caps ON restricting what the EPA FDA drug and food ministration, health and human services environmentalists can present to the public. Our air ,water ,landscapes ,working and living environments are going to be facing oil spills, gas leaks, toxins being burnt off in to our airways) much more frequent with less consequence which is going to result in, cause environmental financial global collapse. Combined with all the health risks that have already been established from business being conducted in this, low-quality outdated manner, by top scientists leading physician specialist the EPA,FDA, drug and food ministration Surgeon General's warnings. They say not to use a generator inside your house or car garage for carbon monoxide poisoning is a leading cause of death! So very soon you will have pipelines from coast-to-coast burning off this petrified death! It is basically bringing the generator inside our house. The oldest trick the Republicans have been using preventing these programs from doing their job is by defunding them. It's what happened the whole time during Obama's presidency it is irritating negligent that Democrats are not bringing these points out sharing these facts would Americans. Talk about play hardball! Talk about pro-life ,women's rights and gay-rights. How about the right to clean air, water, high nutritional value foods. Democrats are only bringing up social classification rights. There not hitting the fundamental rights which is air water, foods, landscapes ,working, living environment and every day home products being made with advanced materials resources substances, that are stronger, lighter more versatile easier to work with+ plus the + these products can freely be used manufactured mass-produced as much is the people need or want without leaving any excess poisonous waste behind. Democrats are pushing how important it is that women have the right for a abortion. Will do the fathers have the right to make sure the kids have clean air, water and high nutritional value foods available 24 seven. As ignorant as the Democrats are behaving right now, the Republicans are celebrating being vindictive. By doing everything they can to keep the majority of the population of Americans) overwork, underpaid, out of shape, sick weak ,desperate ,overfed' undernourished' with them dirty low-paying jobs, that come from outdated! Power sources) inferior materials, poisonous, toxic substances, pesticides ,chemicals that never change their killing composition.
    Which means whether it is a solid liquid or burnt off into our airways atmosphere as a vapor,

    it is always going to be poisonous debilitating deadly to the body'

    at the same time"polluting corrupting devastating to mother Earth) and all the various different forms of life that live within this world. In layman's terms you cannot promote life by doing business with material resources substances that have been scientifically classified religiously verified as petrified death or worse which all stem from coal oil gas the chemical industry dirty low-paying jobs which has resulted in today's people living dying to a diminished quality of life. At the same time living dying having only used the smallest percentage of a fraction of the true potential one is first born with. Adding insult to injury Dirty low-paying jobs that have the potential of causing environmental financial global collapse. Here's the deal there is no profit to be made in the demise of the planet. The bottom line is we have the manpower technology capability resources, to create clean high-paying jobs from coast-to-coast that will improve upon and maintain the quality of our air water foods landscapes working living environment every day HOME products. We have the manpower technology capabilities resources to manufacture mass produce in a way that benefits the body planet soul spirit. We can create clean high-paying jobs coast-to-coast that come from advanced power sources that are self sustainable renewable New Age high quality material resources substances that are stronger lighter easier to work with far more versatile making the design possibility practically limitless. Allowing people to be able to rebuild faster stronger and half the time at a fraction of the cost. That type of leadership loyalty devotion and commitment passion desire to live. Will allow the best chance for each person's generation to become stronger smarter healthier happier better off physically mentally financially possibly spiritually than the previous generation. You tell me which way you think life as a whole will be better off spiritually dirty low-paying or clean high-paying S.R.F.XOXOX

    If a toddler/child asks you 'why are birds?', inform them that their question has a category error. He should reframe his question so that it conforms to the norms of the language and can therefore be answered. You can only answer questions that are formulated correctly.

    This is both hysterical and tragic. I hate these rich bastards. How much money does a dick like him or Blankenship or Murray need? Ugly m-fers. They should be made to splt the money they get with rhe miners that are being laid off and all the retirees. Why are wealthy people ALWAYS SO GREEDY? They tout how religous they are, how American they are, how much they care- but they are none of these. They are going to burn in hell for this. I can't wait.

    If coal miners want to work themselves to death in the mines, I say let them. If facts and reason can't persuade them to transition to new jobs, then we're better off letting them get sick.

    I spent 10 years in the mines .5 years ago was hurt and let go . I wish more was being done on removing our dependence on coal and at the same time more training programs for miners to take on greener energy sources. John Oliver's shows are right on amazing humor and very accurate

    Deliberately mispronouncing Obama's name is a classic right-wing tactic to help "point out" how he's a 'fur-en-er" and not Amurican. And Fox even pulled the accent thing with Fiona Hill. "She don't even talk like a REAL Amurican".
