God these people are stupid. Obama did not take away jobs or coal. Coal is a dead industry and has been dying for 30 years. It is absolutely horrible for those who get stuck living by the mines as the coal dust end up in their homes, water and lungs. In coal mining areas the rate of children who have asthma is like 75% compare to 10% in other areas. The world also has cut back on coal also. The problem is that things change and you either move forward (like they should have been screaming about having programs set up for retraining coal miners to renewable jobs when jobs were start being lose) instead of fighting a losing battle. We will never go back to the 1950's the world is a different place with different people. In fact many of these people whining about wanting to go back to 1950's where not even alive then or where small children at the time. Some American are horrible with change and you will find many of these people also do not know or even really care if they get back on their feet if they really have to work for it. One town whined about how it was dying. But who would want to open a business their if you are not going to welcome outsiders to begin with. They want everything their way with no comprises and that is why we are falling futher behind the world everyday. We have embraced false Christian religion practices instead of the Constitution or reason and it is showing. No we are no longer that country who sent the first man on the moon. Instead we have become a nation who listen to politicians instead of scientists when it comes to things like climate change. With that kind of thinking it's no wonder we've become so pathetic as a country.
