Can anyone tell me how a U.S. senator from West Virginia who owns a coal brokerage firm can effectively and honestly introduce legislation for the coal miners and the citizens of his state when the profits of his company come from little or no regulation of the coal industry?
So, have y'all noticed that the rich or well-to-do people who live on Edgewood or Quarrier streets have salted and plowed roads, but the middle class street residents do not?
Something to be grateful for. Zero. The number of wars that President Obama has started.
Ms. Harrop is right in her article about West Virginians letting corporations and politicians run over top of them. Manchin, Rahall, Capito, and McKinley, along with Tomblin, would put acid in our waters if the extraction companies wanted them to and wouldn't care how many died.
I hear people like you on talk radio ranting about how the president routinely violates the Constitution and "creates his own laws," as you noted in Saturday's Readers' Voice. Can you provide an example? Just one? Or have you belatedly remembered how a bill becomes a law?
Just wondering if WVAW drained the water tanks on Lens Creek Mountain which supply part of Boone County with water. If so, thanks! If not, why not? What other tanks have they not drained? I have asked this question several times but have not gotten any answers.
Quit your crying about the water. This is what most people in West Virginia want, a powerless EPA and federal government. Go ahead and believe that Friends of Coal, state politicians, Chamber of Commerce, and mining company lobbyists' baloney about how Obama is trying to kill coal. Besides, the coal companies have been dumping this chemical (and who knows how many others) in our streams and rivers for years.
The Internet speed is grossly horrific. Years ago it was so slow you could wash a load of cloths before you got anything done. Now you can take a vacation. Tax dollars were used to line someone's pockets while schools, businesses, and the public wait.
Right on cue and before the water even was turned back on, Senator Rockefeller was in typical Democratic form calling for more regulation, more government, and ultimately more taxes so even more people can be paid to not do their jobs.
