The coal industry should have died 30 years ago. It’s dirty fuel that has killed millions. The coal companies should have been diversifying. They should have been building the solar and wind industry right there to provide a sustainable livleyhood for the people that gave their blood and sweat for their profit margins all these years, and generations. But this is what they are doing. They are taking every last drop of blood, and profit as they back out the door.

Why are people pointing their fingers at the Democrates? Why blame them for the demise? And what do they expect Trump to do? It’s over. You are going to have to come up with a way on your own to make a living. You most likely will have to move. Just like we did when we couldn’t make a living mucking uranium out of the ground anymore in the late 70’s. Or like when they pulled the rug out from under the solar industry in the late 80’s. Or like the majority of workers in this country these days that have to start new jobs over and over around every three or four years.

It’s sad, and I’m sorry. But it’s time to stop pointing fingers, or looking for a savior, and do something for yourself.

Old guy. Ex Democrat. Believer in karma. I’ll get mine! You’ll get yours!
