The United Mine Workers Union and its employees

endorsed and voted for Obama.

Now they are getting screwed by Obama as thanks for their blind support.

The progressive mob is driving the coal industry into bankruptcy.

President Obama is leading the charge by having the Environmental Protection Agency issue regulation after regulation targeting coal-fired power plants.

Now billionaire and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is adding his significant financial weight in an effort to kill the coal industry. Bloomberg recently announced Bloomberg Philanthropies is donating $30 million to the Sierra Club’s anti-coal campaign.

Bloomberg’s latest donation adds to the $50 million he gave to the Sierra Club in 2011.

And as a partial counterpoint to the WSJ article on the same subject, I post this for your consideration.  In a nutshell, the progressives at Mother Jones see gun supporters in the same bile-green light of disgust and noblesse oblige as they have always.   Mother’s view of the NRA, however, as some disembodied corporate entity unrelated to the will (and money) of a large number of American patriots is logically dissonant.  I.e.:
