More on the Wise County Power Plant Groundbreaking
First thing - No Protesters! No Larry Bush and the rest of the anti coal idiots were not present. No jackasses hanging from bridges or concreting their arms in barrels blocking the road like they do in NOVA. Two reasons for that - Common Sense and Fear.
Now for some quotes.
“This is the largest economic development project in the history of Southwest Virginia. You very seldom see an economic impact this project will have.”~Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling
“This will benefit the whole state, That’s why you have people here from the whole state today. This is a victory and a celebration for all the citizens of Virginia.”~Attorney General Bob McDonnell.
Indeed! But the stage was all Sen Wamplers. He received a standing ovation for his work. This was a great day for Wise County and the state of Virginia as it will soon be the home of the cleanest coal fired power plant in history that uses only VIRGINIA coal mined by the best workers in the world!
When you boot up that computer, flip that light switch, get that cold milk from the fridge, heat that bottle for your baby, etc.....Thank a coal miner. To the Raising Kaines and the Green Miles who enjoy the luxury of the power miners provide them, yet they would cut our lifeline in a heartbeat. we give them the one finger salute and leave them with this thought - 2 million tons a year feeding this plant,,,year after year after year.
