Too many voted against own interestsEditor:
CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- After the election, it's suitable to write about bias in religion or politics. I never heard so much slander as during the recent election.
In West Virginia, I do not want to judge why so many voted against their best interest. Badly informed, aggressive, depthless nature can still be a part of modern society. People in the voting booth carry such a poisonous outlook.
I once was at a dying man's bedside and he asked me to turn to Fox News, not my preferred station. Later came Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Ann Coulter and other wisecrackers who so many take to heart. What they say is repeated by folks clouded by their indirect streak of bigotry.
How can so many vote against Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid? How can various poor people vote to destroy the social progress that is in their interest?
Some exploiters of public emotion suggest that the president is Muslim, socialist, foreign-born and the rabble eat it up.
They were simply given a permit to hate.

Obama will finish destroying coal industry
I send my condolences to the honorable people of West Virginia. With the re-election of President Obama, your fate has now been signed, sealed and delivered.
The left has put an awful lot of thought, planning and design into crippling the coal industry, which will force West Virginians into being a part of their subservient class. After taking away your livelihood, you will have no choice but to look to the government for your basic needs.
The people of West Virginia have been a target of the left for quite some time. The real issue isn't about environmental concerns or the polar ice caps melting. It's all about obtaining and maintaining their power over the people.
A quote by Barack Obama in The West Virginia Record Nov. 2, 2008, said: "So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can; it's just that it will bankrupt them because they're going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that's being emitted."
After Obama completes his plan to decimate the coal industry, he knows you will have no choice but to turn your life over to him. He will provide you with welfare, free health care, food stamps, rent subsidies, gasoline vouchers, etc. But to qualify for Obama's benefits, you will have to first extinguish your own life savings and investments. Remember when he said: "We need to spread the wealth around."
The Democratic Party is now looking forward to having West Virginians take up permanent residence in Obama's subservient class.
