John Conyers said a very rational thing about the coal industry yesterday:
There’s a big campaign going on about how you clean coal and we want to examine that as critically and fairly as we can, but here’s the problem: I’ve been to West Virginia, and that’s about all they’ve got there.
We’ve got to work out a situation in one state of the union, there may be others, in which we come up with alternative ways of creating full employment without just putting everybody out of work.
Sounds perfectly sane, right? Go read about the resulting shitstorm.
