The song in the start of the video is Neil Young dead man, ur welcome
Sad part is...trump dont give a flying fuck about these people. They praise and honor him but these people are just uneducated and uninformed
these are the same communities that liberal bugmen comfortably living in their suburban bubbles will tell you are privileged
I am so glad I don't have to do that anymore.
The people of West Virginia are getting a truly bad deal in life, and our government isn't doing anything to protect them. The only thing that needs to change is who they vote for. They need a governor who won't be bribed by the coal and oil industries. The time has come to help these people by not continuing the lie that coal is back and it is strong. Coal is dead in my eyes, and the sooner we do away with it and turn to renewable energy, the better. There is huge money in renewable energy that needs a strong country to bring it home to West Virginia and the entire nation.
Went from coal mining to deliverance real quick

Country roads take me home to a place where I'll get black lung
As sure as war kills indiscriminately so does coal mining.
