      G*ddamn, this must be what makes America great again, filing for bankruptcy?.

      Where's the orange POS when those workers need someone who will fight for them as was promised to them by the dotard dolt?

      Probably on the golf course cheating or running his mouth off with more ignorant comments.

          Trump’s campaign promises to save the coal industry were just like his promises to bring back all the lost manufacturing jobs. These promises were impossible to keep, because they defied economic realities. Well informed people saw these promises for what they were. But Trump was speaking to constituencies that were so desperate and feeling neglected and forgotten that they were eager to vote for anyone who expressed concern over their plight.

          Both political parties wrote off the workers displaced by globalization and automation. Fareed Zacharia wrote that effective solutions for those people are just “too difficult and expensive.” But FDR found solutions in the 1930s, and Democrats need to revive that cause. Improved public education and job training. “Make work” public infrastructure programs throughout rural and urban America. The ability to find work with dignity. Programs proving that the nation cares about its people.

          We can hope that “coal belt” and “rust belt” people won’t be fooled by Trump’s empty lies in 2020. But the Democrats need to have positive solutions for these people.

              On a talk show the guy was asked what we should expect by winter and he said start stocking up on food now. can veggies you purchase and stuff like rice. noodles, etc may be costly too. the big food item you might want to get now is pork. oh and cleaning products.

              It's not just going to be electronics, or cell phones. Even though we may be unscathed by this not in real bad shape certain things will be. Like those little party favor items you get for grab bags, All the cheap stuff from china is going up in price, or a lot of CDs DVDs televisions cellphones. Big ticket items are the ones that will really cost us. That and food items. If you need any cables of any kind internet modems, or accessories for any of your electronics then get it now because those will be going up in price sooner than later. I would run because stores don't stock up on some of this stuff. The prices start going up in two weeks. Plus expect the unexpected. Just stock up on the stuff you can't live without, because even if the price doesn't go up on that ticket item it will on others and money saved to purchase other goods you didn't expect to be expensive.

                  The coal industry today is a little bit like days of the companies that made buggy whips. I’m sure they fought hard to keep the jobs for their workers, but in the case of coal their downfall was not due to the invention of the automobile, but due to the ability of compaines to develope massive amounts of natural gas at a super competitive price sealed the fate of coal industry.


                  This was a trend that started long before Trump arrived on the stage, I have no idea what Trump actually knew when he sat out to ‘save’ the coal industry. I doubt he gave much thought about what he was doing or what a hopeless task that was likely to be.


                  Certain types of coal are cridical to the steel industry, but beyond that, it is not so much that the ‘greens’ killed coal, but that basic cost to get you product to market killed them. The fact that natural gas is cleaner than coal is a positive, but not the only factor.
