Wow! Win or lose, it appears that the left wing extremists in the Obama Administration have declared all out war on coal miners and the coal industry. The EPA, with Obama's blessing, have begun an all out push to implement draconian greenhouse gas emissions restrictions designed to destroy the coal industry.
All of you coal miners and power plant workers better listen up. The new reegulations would cost the American economy about $700 Billion. Conn Carrol has the story over at The Examiner:

President Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency has devoted an unprecedented number of bureaucrats to finalizing new anti-coal regulations that are set to be released at the end of November, according to a source inside the EPA.
More than 50 EPA staff are now crashing to finish greenhouse gas emission standards that would essentially ban all construction of new coal-fired power plants. Never before have so many EPA resources been devoted to a single regulation. The independent and non-partisan Manhattan Institute estimates that the EPA’s greenhouse gas coal regulation will cost the U.S. economy $700 billion.If you ever doubted that the inmates are in control of the asylum, this should remove it once and for all. These radical environmental extremists are out to destroy our nation once and for all and in President Obama, they have a friendly, receptive audience who is totally on board with their insane proposals.

Anyone reading this believe these regulations will help solve our economic problems? Anyone believe the more jobs will be created with these radical regulations--or will it do the exact opposite?
When he was running for President in 2008 Obama promised that he would put coal-fired power plants out of business and his choice for Secretary of Energy, Steven Chu, bragged about needing to find a way to increase gasoline prices to over $7.00/gallon.
With this latest effort, no one need hesitate at taking Obama at his word--he has promised to destroy the coal industry and now he and his radical elitists in the EPA have set about doing so.
How many of you plant workers in Ohio are going to be able to afford to drive your own cars to work with gasoline at over $7.00/gallon? How are you going to heat your houses in the winter and cool them in the summer when electricity rates climb 50-100% with these new regulations.
You voters better think long and hard about the consequences of voting for the most radical leftist ever to occupy the White House, because it will be you, not the wealthy who suffer the most.
Obama can promise to raise taxes all he wants on the wealthy, it won't affect the national debt or our annual deficits to any great degree and you will still be paying the taxes you already pay . . . except now, with these new regulations, you will be paying more at the pump, more at the grocery store, and a whole lot more for you electricity.
I have said it before and I restate it now, if President Obama had set out to destroy our economy and our nation (and I believe that is precisely what his personal agenda is) he could not have done a better job.
From day one, every move this administration has made has been the opposite of what should have been done. The results of this, seemingly intentional, systematic destruction will be felt for decades. If America is to have any chance of not simply surviving, but of returning to being "that shining city on the hill," Obama and his cadre of radical, ivory-towered elites must be turned out of office.
Fortunately, Romney is on course to do just that . . . and in a landslide.
Coal miners and working class citizens WAKE UP! You are about to lose your livelihoods to these malevolent actors. This isn't about "man-made global warming." Even man-made global warming wasn't about stopping global warming, it is and always has been about power. The power to control your lives--that has ever been the liberals cause.
After all, they know better how you should run your lives than you do . . . right??? LOL!!
Throw the Democrats out and free yourselves from their chains. Vote Romney/Ryan--vote for freedom.
Long Live Our American Republic!!!!
Romey/Ryan 54 - Obama/Biden 46
[I should note that those are relative percentages and don't account for the other 3-5% of us who are simply loons and will vote 3rd party]
