    Seems like, as he does so often purely to get votes, that Trump campaigned on "we're going to bring back coal." Well, that was laughable at the time and it's laughable now. Ain't no way; it's a dying industry, barely on life support. Perhaps now folks will realize that Trump was never in this game to "bring back coal" or help those in the industry who are suffering now. He was strictly after votes.

    Perhaps if you could get him off the golf course and away from his many photo ops, he could really accomplish something for coal miners. But, don't hold your breath.

    The Rumpsters who believe this should all have a lump of coal in their stockings for Christmas. In fact, they all should have to have a lump of coal in one of the stockings at all times. It would make it easier to identify them from a distance by the pronounce limp. Think about that 63 million lumps of coal being mined for that purpose. That should bolster the coal industry.

    China isn't putting their coal mines out of business. Why are we so backwards about this in the US?

    They have their purposes when needed. However, in every way possible except one...Beta the main video tape competitor was better then VHS.

    But the Beta had trouble handling full length HD movies. It lost out because it was better but the run time was shorter. And the Market spoke. And the winner is........
