I will never understand what it takes to be a Democrat. Or how incredibly stupid one really has to be to continually vote for Democrats. I mean the logic for doing so totally escapes me. Because it’s every single day that I am presented with yet another reason not to, and another piece of evidence that makes it all the more obvious just how much those who comprise the Democrat Party truly do hate this country. And it was as recently as this past weekend that Hitlery provided us all with yet another reason not to vote for Democrats. That reason being, SAVING JOBS!!
Because it was then, while appearing at a CNN town hall held there in Columbus, Ohio, this past Sunday, that Hitlery sounded so much like Barry that it was more than just a little creepy. You see, Hitlery promised that in her administration, “We’re going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.” So I guess my question would be, why? I mean, is it all nothing more than attempt on her part to convince us all that ‘global warming’ really does exist? Or, is it seen by Hitlery as a convenient way to force more people out of work and dependent upon government?
While I don’t suppose Hilery’s declaration came anywhere near to being music to the ears of the thousands of people who depend on the coal industry as their means for providing for their families, I am quite sure it was very well received by the climate change nuts who support Hitlery, as well as Bernie. And, I think, it can also be seen as an endorsement of Barry’s policy, as well as an acknowledgement that she plans to continue waging Barry’s “war on coal.” In fact, it was a clear sign that she intends to accelerate the destruction of one of our country’s leading energy sector industries.
However, her decision to so openly declare her intention may result in what could be, at least potentially, a rather undesirable political effect in Ohio, which, as it just so happens, was the ninth largest coal producing state in 2013. And Ohio, as some of you may be aware, is one of five states holding their presidential primaries today. And it was just a week ago that we saw old Bernie came from behind to defeat Hitlery in the Democrat primary held in neighboring Michigan. So I guess I’d be a little curious as to what her rationale was for making such a declaration when she did.
But, never fear, because Hitlery says that she has a plan for all those coal miners currently working at those coal companies that she fully intends upon putting out of business. And, as we all know, if there’s one thing that Democrats are pretty well known for, it’s their ability to come up with a plan. Not always a good plan, but a plan. She said, “I’m the only candidate which has a policy about how to bring economic opportunity using clean renewable energy as the key into coal country — because we’re going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.”
Hitlery then went on to say, “And we’re going to make it clear that we don’t want to forget those people. Those people labored in those mines for generations, losing their health, often losing their lives, to turn on our lights and power our factories. Now, we’ve got to move away from coal and all the other fossil fuels, but I don’t want to move away from the people who did the best they could to produce the energy that we relied on.” So excuse me if I seem to be more than a little confused here, but why is it, exactly, that we have GOT to move away from coal?
It was back in November that Hitlery first announced a “$30 billion plan to ensure that coal miners and their families get the benefits they’ve earned and respect they deserve, to invest in economic diversification and job creation, and to make coal communities an engine of US economic growth in the 21st century as they have been for generations.” Which, I guess, all sounds pretty good, but am I the only one who doesn’t see anything in the way specifics when it comes to exactly how she intends to bring that about? But then Democrat plans rarely, if ever, include any specifics.
But this little plan of hers does kind of summarize things: Coal is not the only resource mining and power plant communities possess. From Appalachia to the Uinta Basin, coal communities have rich human and cultural capital, diverse natural resources, and enormous economic potential. Hitlery will partner with the local entrepreneurs, community leaders, foundations and labor groups working to unleash that potential, making federal investments that help people to find good jobs without having to move and build a strong, diversified economic future.
But as Thomas Lifson of American Thinker took exception to this plan and was quick to point out, “The idea that coal miners in southern Ohio are going to make solar panels is ludicrous.” Which is a statement I have a hard time disagreeing with. And he goes on to cite how it was that Barry chose to subsidize a solar energy panel producer that went bankrupt after receiving hundreds of millions of dollars from the federal government. He said, “How long did those Solyndra jobs last? They cost taxpayers only about half a billion dollars.” So how much will Hitlery’s plan cost?
And then, it was in referencing these soon to out of work coal miners that he posed the question: “How many of them are willing to wait for highly subsidized jobs in place of well-paying coal mining jobs? It is fashionable for liberals to assume that today’s coal miners are all suffering from black lung disease. What they don’t realize is that strip mines like those in Ohio and Wyoming are capital-intensive affairs paying top wages to skilled operators of expensive machinery. Not for the first time, Hillary is stuck in the past.” Hitlery is more than simply stuck in the past, she IS the past!
And Hitlery mentioned Ohio specifically in her November plan: Hitlery will increase funding for technical assistance for entrepreneurs and small businesses in impacted coal communities, through programs like the Innovation Center at Ohio University in Athens. However that comes a sizable ‘but’, which is that that increased funding for technical assistance and the promise of solar panel jobs are highly unlikely to ever materialize. But that doesn’t matter for now, the purpose is to offer some manner of solace to those Ohio coal miners whose jobs Hitlery has now promised to destroy.
