Response to demmiblue (Original post)

8. I can sympathize.

These guys have coal mining in their blood and family history, so like most of us we don't want to give up on the familiar - especially when it's been there for generations.

Unfortunately, like most dying industries, time and the stock market will end it for them and they'll have to move on. Some mining will remain, but on a very limited basis.

It is extremely cruel for the tRump administration to suggest to these people that coal will return to its former glory, therefore bringing in false hope.
