“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

The age of hope and change not working out so well for the coal miners who endorsed it

To paraphrase The Duke, "Life is tough when you're a coal miner, it's even tougher when you're stupid too."
The head of the national coal miner's union was arrested over the weekend, protesting what was the stated end result of his own endorsement of an adolescent environmentalist for President.......the bankruptcy of the US coal industry.
They weren't tricked. Obama told them he would do this and they endorsed him anyway.
The rank-and-file union members who're losing their entire way of life ought to ask the leaders what they were thinking when they endorsed Obama, if not this? Oh, and what they did with the dues that were forcibly extracted from their paychecks?
