I was amused to see the full-page ad paid for by the United Mine Workers of America in the July 31 Trib. The ad warned of dire consequences for electrical consumers, coal miners, boilermakers, etc., as a result of the EPA and its Clean Power Plan.

The part that amused me was remembering when the UMW endorsed Barack Obama for president. He said in plain English that he would do this, but the union members marched to the polls like good comrades and pulled the big “D” lever.

To quote Obama's favorite reverend, “America's chickens are coming home to roost.”
