I figure we've "only" got (another) 2-1/2 years...before all o' the misogynists start "crawling" outta the '50s...once Hillary Clinton's secured the Dem-nomination for the Presidency.

Be patient. You can never underestimate the "creativity" of Obama's "critics", when it comes to ignorant-terminology.

Yeah...I've been thinking the same (about White-Wingers)...ever since they started coming outta-the-woodwork...right "around" the time we'd elected our (first) Black President.

Give up on coal already, NG gas is the way to go, or at least that is what I am told. So if that is the case then NNG is killing the coal industry. Or do we want to go back to acid rain again, or deal with pollution like China, Honestly you guys make no sense what so ever.

US coal production has decreased from 1.17 B tons in 2008 to 1.02 B tons in 2012 (decline of approx 15% in 4 years) with the first quarter of 2013 being less than any of the previous 6 years. Exports have tripled but are only 3% of total production.

Source: US Energy Information Administration

The administration is pushing the information that exports are up to brainwash the sheep that there is no prejudice against coal. EPA continues to promote high cost solar and wind energy that still requires backup hydrocarbon-based power generation capabilities be built. The EPA continues to push tighter environmental restrictions that leads to closure of coal based power plants and spending of money to replace them.

These all result in higher electrical rates for the consumer. If new technologies (horizontal wells combined with fracking) to increase natural gas production in the tight shales were not developed, the costs would be increasing at a higher rate.

Shaman your continuous use of words like racists and white trash is all anyone needs to hear to figure out the character of the man you are. To get on these boards daily and boast you hateful sediments and you truly believing everything you spew, is clear evidence of your narcissism. I wish you would try just one time to have an original thought.

Yeah...that's B.S., but...such sentiments DO help in keeping the most-racist T-Baggers fired-up.
