screw that, I would've joined the military. why didn't they think it's a good idea to get an education?
It’s Appalachia “sh” in the north, dear
When coal was Kin, we were all peasants and serfs.
Liked the video. Leave your politics out of your reporting.
i live in north eastern PA,right in the middle of the hard coal region,if you want to see an area devastated by the loss of jobs,take a ride through are coming around but they don't pay very good wages,the companies coming in take advantage of the lack of jobs and screw the people here some more.
Starting off with a political statement in a documentary is a mistake
Home of the snake cult.
Any other Appalachians cringe through this whole docushort? Why is everyone always so surprised to find normal people in Appalachia? Do y'all assume we're all troglodytes?? Is the lens on Appalachia supposed to be a "new" and "edgy" take on working class America?
You have no clue about central Appalachia. Coal jobs in Kentuck number roughly 6,000 in the WHOLE state. In West Virginia, it's roughly 2% of the job market. We. Are. More. Than. Coal.
Her first words were that after ya’ll voted for Pres.Trump, it confirmed her opinion that everyone was poor, hillbilly, and coal. What an idiot. Yeah and every woman who is a Documentarian is a White, Hillary Clinton, Ivy League, privileged, environmentalist who doesn’t know that coal powers America and Milk comes from dairy cows not the market.
hii i am willing to come and set up shop to star working a mine
Coal miners have a perfect excuse for blackface.
Notice that these Leftist didn't mention their hero, Ossama/Obama Hussein (my daddy was a Muslim brotherhood organizer). During the Marxist/Muslim first campaign (2008) he said, 'your utility rates will necessarily skyrock" what the hell did that mean. It meant he would use the arbitrary power of the Federal government (not any power he legitimately had, that would have came from Congress, he knew then of course if you disagree with him you were a racist) to put such regulatory requirements on coal fired power plants that they would shut down completely, spend astronomical sums to meet absurd EPA requirements, or switch to oil or gas as fuel. Obama really didn't mind if coal mined in KY if it was shipped to China, just do not burn it in the US. And, don't forget what Hiltabeast said "I'll put those coal miners out of business". Who you vote for is important, the Dems. have a strategy to coheres you vote one way or another shut down your job in the mines, put you on welfare, and remind you every day you have them to thank..
Leis,lies more lies
awful music choice, jeez.
Run away from coal mining
Move to florida and be a carpenter
Kentucky has 3 non powered dams. Each represent a 400 megawatt potential.
Nobody wants coal anymore...there is cleaner, more abundant energy sources has made it so...Get out of the don't belong there!
