Recently,  a couple of people tried to make slanderous comments on this website regarding the coal industry and about Citizens4Coal President Roger Horton.  One of the comments was an attempt to claim the photos that are shown to illustrate the success of long-term restoration and post-mine land use efforts are somehow not real.  I can ASSURE you that these places do indeed exist however I can also attest that the industry as it is portrayed by anti-coal propagandists does NOT.

The second comment was an attempt to claim President Horton was somehow responsible for the deaths of our brothers at Upper Big Branch. How? Because he was defending our industry and our jobs and not fighting to destroy them like the anti-coal radicals. This is a PATHETIC, DISGUSTING attempt to use the tragedy of Upper Big Branch to push a radical agenda that would have deprived those very men and 63,000 brothers and sisters of their jobs.

One of the commenters asked “which side President Horton is on?”

I can tell you that Roger Horton works every day for the coal miners, their families and for the communities of West Virginia and Appalachia who depend on coal.

So I ask the commenter … WHICH SIDE ARE YOU ON? IF YOU AREN’T WITH US — THE COAL MINER — OR YOU ARE AGAINST US!
