Area Coal Baron Loves Coal

Manchin Family Reunion

H/T Scissorhead Purplehead

Multi-millionaire coal baron and Senator, Joe Manchin considers a lump of coal in the ol’ Holiday Stocking to be a good thing:

“Being cavalier about the loss of coal jobs for men and women in West Virginia and across the country who literally put their lives on the line to help build and power this country is offensive and disgusting,” Manchin said.

It all happened because President Handsome Joe Biden was in Massachusetts visiting a coal-burning electricity plant that was being converted to wind energy, and said,

“No one is building new coal plants because they can’t rely on it, even if they have all the coal guaranteed for the rest of their existence of the plant. So it’s going to become a wind generation,” Biden said.

And now Manchin is demanding a public apology and once again saying that the Democrats deserve…

“Comments like these are the reason the American people are losing trust in President Biden and instead believes he does not understand the need to have an all in energy policy that would keep our nation totally energy independent and secure.

“It seems his positions change depending on the audience and the politics of the day. Politicizing our nation’s energy policies would only bring higher prices and more pain for the American people,” he added.

Anyway, just like Joe Lieberman, Joe Manchin wants to remain relevant, and Dawg help us all.

    Posting your occasional reminder that employment in the coal industry has declined since 1922 and the greatest decline since the 1980’s has not been because the world abandoned coal, but the coal barons (like Coal Joe Lieberman here, Eat Shit Bob Murray, and Don “I love murdering my employees” Blankenship ) have moved to methods that require vastly fewer employees to mine coal

    (leveling vast areas in West Virginia by removing mountaintops and filling the valleys with the waste, just so gargantuan robotic trucks and frontloaders can stripmine the exposed coal seams. All managed with a handful of employees, the majority of which are minimum wage security guards. )

    So Coal Joe can eat shit and die.

    I’m hoping this attempt to remain relevant falls flatter than a fritter. What a jackass.

    I feel bad for the raccoons being compared to the Mansion family. They’re just trying to get by feeding on garbage, probably the same garbage created by the Mansion family. They, the Mansion family, only care about their wealth and wouldn’t associate with the miners for any reason. It’s hard to see how Joe gets elected repeatedly except that money doesn’t talk, but it does swear (via Bob Dylan)…

    Maybe Manchin’s sensing his lame-duckedness: this election will knock down his relevance either way it goes. Still, whatanass.

    The government needs to buy wagon wheels, so the makers of wagon wheels don’t lose their jobs.

    Manchin should wear his coal. Smear it on his face and hands so we never forget what he is all about. Carry pockets full of it that leak and leave chunks and dust behind him as he slithers down a hallway.

    Manchin probably views Black Lung Disease as a revenue generator for WV.
