Sadly, I doubt they'll learn their lesson. Have fun voting yourselves out of a job, morons.

Roberts and other UMWA members were arrested Thursday marching through Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, towards the federal building where the Environmental Protection Agency was holding field hearings for a new rule that could very well force more coal mines and plants to shut down.
Curious what they were actually arrested for.  Strange that it wasn't specified in either article.

What's that line about giving them what they asked for "good and hard"?
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

Last page of that article said they were arrested for obstructing the sidewalk.

Unions and the EPA in the same place? Where's an asteroid when you need one?

Unions vs EPA is like a domestic Iran vs Iraq. Now if we can just get the DEA involved somehow...

Obama has been talking about shutting down coal plants for a while.  What was their excuse in 2012?

I'm happy the union idiots are going to feel the effects of their blind support of Democrats, however, we'll all be feeling it too.

I guess they weren't listening in January 2008 when Obama said this in a TV interview: "So, if somebody wants to build a coal plant, they can — it’s just that it will bankrupt them, because they are going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted."

It's not like they weren't warned.

Wonder if ol' Mike Day would like a copy of the that picture sent to him as a reminder....
Some days even my lucky rocketship underpants won't help.


Bring me my Broadsword and a clear understanding.
Get up to the roundhouse on the cliff-top standing.
Take women and children and bed them down.
Bless with a hard heart those that stand with me.
Bless the women and children who firm our hands.
Put our backs to the north wind.
Hold fast by the river.
Sweet memories to drive us on,
for the motherland.
