I work in a field where the risk of AIDS and Hepatitis is high risk. All jobs have risks. My Dad worked in the mines almost 20 years and he is 91 years old, great lungs, and no chronic conditions that are related to the mines. My cousin does not have any health issues at all and eats the fish and game on a regular basis. My uncles all lived up into their 80's and did not have mine related health issues. Most black lung patients were smokers in addition to the mines.So, you and Macduff are both arguing that we should simply NOT CARE about stuff like this:
The authors note that coal mining's impact goes beyond aquatic species and can affect the health of communities. It is linked to increased human mortality from lung cancer, chronic health problems, and kidney disease. It also can affect recreational opportunities, including fishing and game hunting, by killing off fish and animals and making the surviving fish too dangerous to eat.
Well then some Buzzfeed or Huffington Post writers can now take that same advice.
And the average salary for coding isn't near 6 figures.
Why are you advocating for pollution?That poster claims he taught economics for something like 33 years. Well, it is a partial explanation as to why two generations of Americans are economic illiterates.
Øbama, President Zero.
In January 2008 when he was running for President, then-Senator Obama, said, “[E]lectricity rates would necessarily skyrocket…. [W]hatever the plants were, whatever the industry was, they would have to retrofit their operations. That will cost money. They will pass that money onto consumers.”
President Obama Keeps His Promise: Electricity Rates Will Skyrocket Because of Carbon Rules
Not quite so bad as Pocahontas or mocking a diabled guy.Help me out here. I thought I was up on all the cyber abuse possible.
How is the phrase "learn to code" abusive? Why is it a dogwhistle on Twitter? (Which may be a dumb question, considering Twitter's volatile nature.)
I really don't know. If professional coal miners could switch to a higher paying career in computer tech and avoid the black lung that is certainly coming their way, how is making such a suggestion abusive?
I do think it's kind of tacky for a president to use that phrase, but Obama (besides being the worst president in history) is also the most classless. It certainly sounds like something that would emanate from that entitled, spoiled brat's piehole.
It’s kind of mind boggling how the OP managed to turn this into a negative and then get all his RW friends to jump on the dog pileSo we’re making progress — progress that’s possible only because of the strength and resilience of the people in our rural communities.
In Clinton County, Ohio, young people have organized to tackle the brain drain, creating a fellowship program that matches local businesses with college students home for the summer. And those young people aren’t just learning, they’re leading — just last year, Wilmington, Ohio elected a majority-millennial city council.
