I want an, "Eat Shit, Bob" t-shirt. You have to start an online merchandise site.
Thank you for pronounicing Appalachian correctly John.

Why are birds though?
Hi Bob, eat shit.
Adapt or die. That’s just the law of Nature.
I find it terrifying that the Scott Pruitt scandal that forced him to resign wasn't the fact that he doesn't even have a science degree.

Coal is a non-renewable resource. It is eventually going to go away. Solar power won't go away for another 13 million years. After that that's all she wrote.
Cant really believe coal mining is still a job in USA. Its time for an upgrade people
1 billion dollars
“We’re going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.” HRC. Enough said!..

Conservatives are such snowflakes. Why would someone try to sue over the protected free speech (that is known stateside as "satire")? I am glad the judge tossed the suit out.
when is the update on #eatshitbob
Maaaaaan I like this guy... He got about 50% right about coal which is more than most people out there.. especially the community stuff. Can't argue with that.

We need to remember coal there are different types or ranks of coal. You have metallurgical coal that is key to making steel. We need steel. It helps us make big things including wind turbines.

When people who know nothing about coal and no engagement with the guys on the tools, try and put laws in to control.. they can in fact create extremely dangerous situations for workers.
