About: West Virginia Coal Miners: WAKE UP!

"the friends of coal are not your friends" Richard Ojeda
Why so many left off Burke Mountain... (Bluestone K2 Plant)... Jim Justice's...
Coal is dying fast the world around. And that's a good thing. And oh, yeah you voted for Republicans. Now lay down in the bed you made...
"My daughter could beat the shit out of half of them."
He is tearing it up.
I don't even feel sorry for coal worker's anymore. If they are stupid enough to continue to support those idiots they deserve them.
Ojeda is a joke.
Coal in West Virginia? If the Dems get back in, they’ll shut down the mines. The Dems most “moderate” candidate has made that clear. Keep babbling, Little Dick. No one takes you seriously.
They still will vote Republican
Ojeda is as eloquent & passionate as ever; question is, will he endorse Paula Jean Swearengin’s current run on the Senate?
Can you name one instance where the Friends of Coal® have went to bat for coal miners? Where’d the 40 hour work week that my great grandfather put himself in harms way for? WV ancestors put themselves and their families in harms way to fight against coal companies greed and domination, they keep us poor with the company store, and what did 2 generations later do? They gave it all back to the operators. All the blood that was spilled was all spilled in vain. Ask a coal miner, if you know any, when he/she last worked a 40 hour week. Ask them how their retirees are doing with no pension or healthcare. It’s too easy in WV, all you have to do is blame it on Obama. I don’t think you have to have a PhD in political science, although it would help cut down on the Obama’s fault factor, but do it for your great grandfathers and grandfathers. And most importantly do it for your children. Does anyone want their kids or grand kids to work for minimum wage with no benefits? CEO pay has went up over 350 times since the Reagan era began and most of that since the Rush Limbaugh/Sean Hannity era began. WVians are so duped that many here believe $15 an hour is a good paying job while studies show that $75 an hour would be a good paying job, for the working masses. Sociology and even anthropology plays a role in all of this along with political science. The first thing we need to do is love each other and when you see your brother in the gutter reach out your hand. Don’t hate him and wish malice upon him. Ask him how is he getting along. This culture of me and mine and to hell with anybody else only fuels everything that’s bad in a democracy. We need to remember what the forefathers knew all to well, that with freedom/democracy comes great responsibility. Think about that. People bitch about paying taxes. The very taxes which fund police forces, schools, fire departments etc. but you know what soon as they need one of these mentioned they call them up without a thought. Listen to this great man Ojeda. He’s trying to help you. Fight the good fight by doing what’s right. And always remember when they asked Jesus when were you sick, and poor, and lost because we would’ve been right there for you buddy, and he replied by saying “What you do to the least among you you also do to me.” Ask yourself what have you been doing to them with the least among you. Because you’re doing the same thing to Jesus Christ. Lord and Savior. Quit being so sorry. There’s time left, hopefully, to do what’s right. And quit whining about it. Everybody plays their part. Forgive me my grammar at least. Ojeda there’s some of us who’s got your back. You keep doing what we’ve been too lazy/sorry to do. Thank you sir.
Thank you for speaking up for the miners.
Thank you for speaking the truth that's hard for most to hear.
That is what I don't understand, people poor people, and blue collars workers follow the Republicans. I was at a republican election partiy in South Carolina in the late nineties. One of the leaders told a group of us. He hopes Karl Rove can continue to keep the low educated and the stupid poor following them for the crumbs they give them or the Republicans will lose. The rich will stay because they continue to get richer.
These things bought the mineral rights 200 years ago. For next to nothing. Now they got the coal for free.
I don't see any imigrants trying to work in the coal industry...but its what they are fighting...Democrats and Republicans can fix the migration problem in one paper and yet they don't want to fix it.... i don't hear anything about coal mine problems... but sure if your a coal miner and you are for trump supporters, go ahead and take the bullet for his fk-ups.
The good old free enterprise system and then who's going to pay to clean up his mess that he left the good old American people way to go douchebags keep on voting for Trump and that's what you get
Is it just a coincidence that the poorest states in the union are DEEPEST red states; Louisiana, Alabama, West Virginia, Mississippi🤔🤔🤔
Conman don told you he would bring back coal he lied, he also cut Obama's training and factories that would have bought in renewable energy
