If you recall when Obama was first running for president in 2008 he gleefully stressed that he would make it unaffordable for survival of the coal industry, a person who wanted to keep up with the industry in other words would have to pay through the nose. So what has this socialist now decided to do but to halt any new coal leases on federal lands until a review is made to determine if fees charged to mining companies provide a “fair return” to tax payers. Of the millions of dollars the government spends on useless pork program they are now worried that fees being charged to mining companies may not be high enough. God has provided America an abundance of resources coal being one of them and this poor excuse for a president wants to destroy a whole industry that provides the United States much of it’s needs. This is so obvious it stinks.
The following was published by Fox News: “Karen Harbert, president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Institute for 21st Century Energy, slammed the decision. Herbert called the move “a foolish crusade” that strips America of one of its “diverse mix of energy sources.”
“Another day, another front on the war on coal from this administration,” she said in a statement following the announcement. “At this point, it is obvious that the president and his administration won’t be satisfied until coal is completely eradicated from our energy mix.”
“Roughly 40 percent of the coal produced in the United States comes from federal lands. The vast majority of that mining takes place in Wyoming, Montana, Colorado, Utah and New Mexico.”
I have heard Bill O Reilly, of The Factor, on Fox News a number of times stress the fact that Obama has left wing tendencies, but he means well he says, Obama is not out to purposely hurt our country. Well I’m going to tell O’ Reilly what he tells people when he disagrees with them and that is Bill O’Reilly you are drinking the Kool-Aid. I want Bill O’Reilly to look at the whole picture of what Obama has done to out country over the last seven years and if he still thinks Obama is not set out to hurt the United States of America, you O Reilly can not see in front of your nose. Just because Obama has helped O’Reilly secure some motorized wheelchairs for the military which is nice does not mean that Obama has not been out to hurt America. It is people like O’Reilly who have gone to universities like Harvard that the curiosity of investigating tyranny when it is right there in front of them, are contributing to Obama’s tyranny by not seeing the real picture, but the day has come. We The People have figured out the real picture and we are going to take our country back.
