    seriously though barbie, why do you come back to a site where you know you're not wanted?
    Ironic you should say that...

    Do you suppose if you left, anyone at all would ask you to come back? When I left, you at least had a sense of humor.

    Don't panic; I'll likely be moving along before too long.
    Let's say that I suffer from a delusion. I will call this delusion "Fact-check Syndrome." I respond by citing facts.

    Most people online don't want to be corrected. They do not care about anything that does not agree with them.

    If we can get off your obsession for a moment, the OP calls.

    As you see, there are numerous reasons why the jobs aren't coming back in the Appalachian coalfields. Technology, economics, and a reduction in easy coal deposits are doing what Trump cannot undo.

    And as you see, some of Trump's own moves have made things worse. Fracking is the single largest economic disaster for coalmining jobs, and mechanization is the largest technological disaster for them.

    Kmoney was telling me coal was never coming back. I guess his MSM sources forgot a few pertinent details.

    That isn't what I said. What I did say is that regulations aren't the only thing hurting coal.

    EDIT: looking back, one of the quotes in the articles did have a pretty grim view of coal making a comeback, but there were also industry people expressing some caution.

    You have no idea if jobs will come back to the Appalachian coal fields or not.

    People who know a great deal about it, say that they won't...

    Robert Murray, founder and chief executive of Murray Energy—the nation's largest privately held coal mining company—told the Guardian that many mining jobs were lost to technology and competition, rather than regulation.

    Trump can't really change that, Murray said.

    Does that mean it's an absolute certainty that jobs will never come back? Is it as certain as the likelihood the sun will appear in the morning sky tomorrow given a clear sky?

    By that measure, how many professing Christians are on their way to the Lake of Fire?

    Here is one possible way to bring back Appalachian coal:

    American coal can fuel friendship with China

    Just let them keep digging all the while thinking China will continue to import it.

    Can anyone see why it's a very bad idea to continue to badmouth China in such a context?

    People who are taking Trump over the coals for his supposed flipping on the currency manipulation of China are very short sighted.
