    Trump Save the miners

    I got bombed about a speech Trump gave, I think yesterday or the day before, where Trump gave a speech to save the miners. I don't follow this stuff much or watch the news and all of their sound bites but I might want to hear/read this. Anyone have a link or know what speech this was part of?

    TIA

    I think that speech was about saving the coal mining industry.

    I do believe the part on Mining fits so I will allow so far.
    though I did not Listen to Trumps Ramble. I don't know if he brought up Miners

    A miner is a miner. The hacks target one form of mining, who is next ? We stick together or we hang seperately.

    Considering how many coal fired power plants are still in operation shutting down coal mining most likely wouldn't be the wisest choice of actions. Millions of people without electricity would lead to instant impeachment if not a lynch mob. (...and I DON'T mean the band!)

    People STILL need to learn that without miners and mining they wouldn't have ANY of their modern toys!

    in my opinion. the only way to shut down a coal mine is to shut down a coal fired electric plant. basic supply and demand. the only way to shut down a coal fired electric plant is to get electricity from another source . now if I get solar power on my roof does that mean im putting a coal miner out of work? probably ! How ever, how many miners have I put to work to provide the raw materials for my solar panels? We all need electricity to do our work. We can not do with out it for very long. there are clean ways to produce it but all ways need miners. Bryan in Denver Colorado

    I drive for uber in the Denver metro area and I drive lots of Eco-nazis. I love telling them about my panning hobby because they freak out on me. Then I get to tell them how everything they eat, own and use is because of mining. They then say we don't eat rocks or wear rocks. I then point out their synthetic fiber shirt(from petroleum), the salad they had for lunch(from potash and petro fertilizer) and the lights at there house( from coal/nuclear/gas). By the end of the ride I usually can convince about the positives of mining. But some are so rabid and lost nothing gets through.

    I mine and use solar as well. There's no reason that mining and using clean energy can't go hand in hand. I've been working on a design for a solar system to go on my mining trailer that will provide power for sluice pumps as well as any other electric tools I want to use. Pull up to the work site with the 8 deep cycle batteries already charged and I can go right to work. The panels keep them topped off and I'll have enough power left over for an evening rock concert with light show in the middle of the desert should I so choose.

    Some people just can't give up the only belief system they've had in their lives no matter how much sense/wisdom you try to impart to them. You might try this tactic.... Ask them to name something they use that contains nothing that is mined or grown! That makes them have to think it out for themselves.

    It's sad to witness the disconnect from fundamentals that modern day society had created. It's scary to think that some are so ignorant to truly believe that mining is evil when in reality it is the most basic and important fundamental of just about everything that modern day man has to his benifit today. Shame on those that belive otherwise. Ignorance at its best.

    I think it's all a scam, No matter where they think the energy or whatever is going to come from? Something has to be mined!

    Ok, so we all go to solar? We need batteries! Lead or Lithium, copper,etc.. Has to come from somewhere! It's who ever has interest in what? Or goes along with the Human caused global warming scam.

    I've never been in the big operating coal mines. I've seen the monster piles and miles of train along the ohio river though! Barges full of it too! These are huge mines! And I can't remember the name off hand. They are huge and employ thousands of people. You shut those down? Those towns are gone! It is the only thing supporting some area's. Same in Alabama and I'm sure many other places! Can't be done! Shutting those down like she talks about? would be A mess and effect a lot of families! From miners, trains,trucks,barges,equipment and tools,towns,business's etc....And the people behind her cheering! Have no clue what they are even cheering for! It's like a cult type following!

    I don't even live out West and can't believe what laws and regulations some of you have to know just to be able to go work a high banker or dredge!! If your even allowed! It's dirt!!!!
