    Obama's plan to bankrupt our nation's Coal industry seems to be working.

    Irony is that most natural gas E&P companies are also losing huge sums due to suppressed prices.
    Yet Obama is stalling on approval of LNG terminals that would allow exports.

    Coal's getting off cheap, the nation will be paying to clean up coal's pollution of the environment for centuries, the industry better hope it goes bankrupt before the class action suits start rolling in.

    If they want help in retraining into a useful, sustainable industry with a future, Obama is certainly better than Romney, though to tell you the truth the difference is so minorly distinguishable that I'm still not certain who I will vote for.

    Now watch as President Obama sends his EPA nazis in to put a stake in it's heart to finish it off.
