The future of mining

The future of mining
They talk about mining overseas in this report, but mining is important around here too. As other countries start taxing more and requiring higher wages the USA becomes more competitive. We'll see what happens...

With all the environmental regulations and red tape it will never be cost-effective to mine in California! Boxer, Pelosi, and Feinstein will make darn sure of it too!

The apparent plan is to sell our coal to China and have them burn it over seas so the wind blows it over America. Then use up our farming resources to produce less green energy than was initially put in and offset the loss to the farmers with government subsidies from an already bankrupt nation. If we were being bombed we would be able to see our enemies.
You know why single men live longer than married men? Because they want to.

CRUSTY: Mining is what made American strong! We have all the natural resources we could possible need if only we didn't have all these environmental restrictions in place blocking our ability to use them. No wonder our economy is on the brink of collapse.

Some in the “Know” want us to stop using the natural resources that built the Nations dominance in the past and replace that with tech based industry. Then those same in the “Know” crowd dumb down the schools. I’m sure I’m wrong but that’s what I see.

Just a little ways down south near Mojave, they've got themselves a major gold and silver mining operation.
