Will he be freeing his slaves in West Virginia too? I mean, his wealth is largely due to all those poor smucks in WV who were so stupid and untalented that the only thing they could do for a living was go down in a hole filled with black dust and poison gas and dig the compressed remains of old swamp life. How many deaths bought him his wealth?

I know, it’s a little unfair, since it’s a really easy line to draw from his wealth to the coal mines and the generally poor treatment the workers receive, while nearly every senator has some similar wealth build based on the driving down of the populace into some slavery-like state. Well, for that matter the house members too. Good thing we have religion around to assure the slaves that God will bring everyone justice after our deaths, otherwise they might expect it now. Justice that is. And what the heck would that do to the stock market?

Finally! I have little or no respect for this guy and his guilt for having money, yet living well off of it. He is truly the live off your family name and money guy. I don’t think he ever had a real job other than politics. I don’t agree with just about anything he says or does. HE use to be good looking.
