The president's bold declarations - both public and private - are not always carried through to implementation.

Anyone who has paid attention to Trump's history would already know this.  How many times has he been taken to court to get him to pay on contracts he's signed and didn't want to pay after the work was done?

Surely not my face, though. Those were all mean NYC types that had it coming to them. He really cares about the common man.

Gosh, that's quite a startling revelation. How could we have possibly not have seen this coming?

And the coal baron and the remnants of coal country will still vote for anyone the GOP fields--including a Trump re-election.

Trump broke a promise?? Prove it. That's as impossible as him having small hands.

How's that Diggie Changey going for you, West Virginia?

It doesn't matter, does it? Trump could sign an emergency EO shutting down every mine in the state indefinitely and you'd still vote for his orange ass.

You lie to the peasants.  Everyone expects that.  That's why peasants have ears after all.

But a gentleman does not lie to another gentleman.  That would be unthinkable.  It's just not done.  Harumph.

Simple editing error in the original. Fixed now.

There is nothing more stupid on this planet in its entire history than a Trump supporter.  Expunging them and their genetic taint would be one of the greatest beneficial events that has ever occurred in humanities history.

Not that I have an opinion and not that I've ever been accused of hyperbole.

fark Robert Murray.  His personal actions has killed people.

It's not a wonder why he was so taken with Trump.

Fake News

President Trump has fulfilled every campaign promise he made.  We've deported every single illegal alien in this country, done away with that horrible Obamacare, built the wall on the Mexican border with American labor and Mexican money and in just a few months, made so much profit from that wall that we were able to build the Gadsden Canal, running from San Diego to the Rio Grande, so that we did not have to pay to use the Panama Canal.  Unemployment is at zero and the stock market breaks records every day.

You Liberals are such damned liars.

Bold declarations not carried through to completion is a very wordy way of saying "Lie".

"As stated, disastrous consequences for President Trump, our electric power grid reliability, and tens of thousands of coal miners will result if this is not immediately done," he wrote.

Robert Murray does NOT GIVE ONE SINGLE FARK for any miner or the power grid or the country.  He is the WORST that capitalism has to offer.

Again... it's not surprising he went for Trump.

Are we running out of faces yet?
 
2017-08-22 04:00:04 PM  
Look Bob,
It's time you realized that once you've knelt down and puckered up, Trump's gonna say whatever you want to hear to get the sucking started. Once he's gotten to where he wants to be though, you're out. He has no reason to continue your "relationship".
 
2017-08-22 04:00:31 PM  
Give it a little more time, Bob. Trump and Pruitt aren't finished repealing environmental safeguards. You'll be polluting our water supply and chopping the tops off mountains in no time.
 
2017-08-22 04:00:41 PM  
I received an 95 on my Environmental Science final for tackling "clean coal" and making a convincing argument.  At the very end of the presentation I stated, "just like coal, that felt very dirty."

Owner of company that says federal regulations stymie business innovation, wants emergency federal regulation stating other companies can't act in their best interest by switching fuels.

Color me shocked.

its ok trump is now going to not give them any money for retraining either... they better find some good bootstraps...

I never understood Trump supporters love for coal power plants. I thought they hated coal burners.
 
2017-08-22 04:03:53 PM  
Damnit and I just sold my place so I can move to coal country and get me one of them sweet sweet coal digging jobs.

So like every other politician?
api.ning.comI would also like to explore intersectional linguistics of privilege and problematize the use of "biatch" in this context, which indicated heteronormativity and homophobia by implying that a receptive anal position is inferior or debased while the penetrative partner is exhibiting possession and superiority. Please report to the cultural diversity center for sensitivity retraining.

If you have money, and a guaranteed source of money coming in, why wouldn't you invest money in something that could continue making money in perpertuity?

I don't get all of these old oil and coal folks that are just riding out what they know for a fact is a diminishing commodity and not actively trying like hell to get in on the ground floor of new technologies that the world needs?

Then STFU, Mr. Coal.

What the hell is "moratorium on coal plant closing"? If a private owner of a coal plant wants to close down its plant, the government should order him to continue operate it, at a loss if necessary? When the USA have became USSR?

That takes work. Bribing politicians to use the power of government to prop up your dying industry is easier, well except when you're trying to get Trump to follow through on a backroom deal. Murray should have known that Perry's bribes fromties to the fracking industry wouldn't let me prop up coal at the expense of natural gas.

Okay, now that I've read the entire article, I'm even more pissed at these big babies.  The emergency exception was to allow plants to keep belching smog beyond their expiration date because the closing might impact the local power grid?  Well maybe the assholes who own those plants should've done something about that.  That is not something that sneaks up on you. I'm sure they would have had plenty of time to work on new plants if they wanted to, but that costs money in the short-term and they'd rather just be lazy and beg to be allowed to bend the rules.

I'm sure I'm oversimplifying here, but Jesus Christ, these bugfarkers cause half their own problems because they can't be bothered to even pretend to try.

Ironically, that's one of the things the evil "looter government" wanted to do in Atlas Shrugged.

First of all, the only intersectional linguistics that really apply to you are whether you are a really inept Neo-Nazi or just a painfully unfunny troll.

Secondly, what else would you call a complete coward that is currently trying to sue a major entertainment company because a comedian made fun of him with a squirrel costume? "Biatch" readily comes to mind and it just flows from the mouth.

/Remember, most "biatches" are in fact straight white men
//You never heard Jesse Pinkman call a woman a "biatch" on Breaking Bad, did you?
