I hope they and their families, and other like-minded folks in Ohio and Pennsylvania, vote to end the self-inflicted war on American energy production.
Thanks to ChicagoBoyz reader Bob Skinner for the picture. Bob half-expected our Commander in Chief to call in a drone strike on these guys, partly for the yucky coal, but mostly for the flag.
This election is a nail biter. I am struggling not to obsess.
God bless America.
I would bet that is one Consol Energy’s barges. A better company and better bunch of safety minded guys couldn’t be found anywhere.
Larger version here.
I cut and pasted this on FB...(hope that is ok...but for us Yinzers, a/k/a “ BITTER CLINGERS” that is a POWERFUL image!!!)
DON’T TREAD ON COAL!!!
I am pretty certain that George Washington is smiling.
If you want on/off the PA Ping List, please freepmail me.

I wonder how Warren Buffett will feel when he realizes that millions of tons of coal are hauled by the railroad he bought a couple of years ago are no longer a commodity he gets to charge freight for??
“I wonder how Warren Buffett will feel when he realizes that millions of tons of coal...”
