I seriously doubt many "Weinee Greenie" liberals, Give a Damn, whether you chose to heat your home with coal. some may be concerned about the environmental impact of some super big industries, and their sometimes irresponsible negligence. Some say that they like that coal does not spill into creeks, are you secretly an environmentalist after all ?. and if you are in a Public place, woods, fishing etc, you don;t own the world. " some berk gets in my way". coal mining sounds like a lousy way to make a living. would you work in a coal mine,? but it is ok with you to send Americans to an early grave, so you can feel "Very American", and save a few bucks. I like my coal stove, it does give that warm, fuzzy feeling, and i enjoy reading most of the posts written, by intelligent Gentlemen on this site. but when the racist, bigoted, uninformed political garbage spews out, it makes me believe some coal burners are just angry back woods hillbilly's.
