Mining industry not looking for bailout
Speaking July 9 in the student union at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, President Obama stated “Well, I believe that if an American company wants to create jobs and grow, we should be there to help them do it.”
This sounds all good and well if you live in Las Vegas or anyplace else west of the Mississippi River. Here in Appalachia, those words are meaningless. We mine coal here and, to the current administration, that’s like saying a bad word in Sunday school.
