Emma Morano, the last person on Earth to be born in the 1800s dies at 117. Born November 29, 1899.

The Kentucky Coal Mining Museum in Benham features an exhibition coal mine; artifacts from miners and their families; fossils; a 2-ton block of coal cut especially for the museum as a photo backdrop; and even items from the personal collection of country music star (and coal miner’s daughter) Loretta Lynn.

It also will soon have 80 solar panels on its roof to generate the electricity the facility needs, withthe excess helping to power the town of Benham. The switch to solar is expected to save the museum between $8,000 and $10,000 a year on its energy bill.

President Donald Trump campaigned on a promise to bring coal to the forefront of America’s energy policy, in part by eliminating environmental protections and President Barack Obama’s Clean Power Plant policy. Meanwhile, the coal industry has been declining for years, in part because other energy sources such as natural gas and renewables have become more cost-effective alternatives.

McCain always says what’s morally right. Then he does the opposite.

Who wudda thunk it? Tesla stock rose today to $298 and surpassed Ford in value. Which is insane. Not not too insane. I sold my TSLA stock today @ $293. I’m still an Elon cult member. But I think I’ll be able to buy back in at a lower price.

I think in the long run Tesla will become the worlds biggest auto maker, the worlds biggest solar installer, and the world’s biggest battery maker. But I think the likelihood that the stock will go down in the short term is good.

How incompetent does Trump and the Republican Congress have to be to appoint a communist agent as head of American Intelligence? Now disclosed that Flynn was being paid by the the Russians. This presidency is illegitimate. Trump didn’t win the election, Putin did. So many Communist links. It seems to me that if you have to commit treason to win the presidency then you really didn’t win. The Trump administration are all agents of the Communists.

Are there any Republicans who are not either Communist agents or actively covering up for the Communists in their investigation of Communist links? What is our duty as citizens to fight the enemy when the government becomes the enemy?

Spacex has finally done it. Today they reused a recovered rocket booster and sent it back to space a second time. Since the first stage is 2/3rds the cost of the rocker they just cut their launch costs to 1/3 of what it was.

Warning, coarse language

The Democratic party has been losing ground in rural white America because of the their opposition to having sex with miners. “Just because I work in a coal mine doesn’t mean I shouldn’t be allowed to have sex!”, a coal miner might have said if he were asked. “These liberals want to control what I do in bed!”

I reporter might have said in response, “It’s not sex with miners, it’s sex with minors. That means you can’t have sex with your daughters.” “Oh – I get it now,”, the miner might have responded. “But that’s even worse!”

Looks like getting the rural white vote is going to be a challenge for Dems as Hillary plans her next run for president in 2020.

The Department of Justice just unsealed an indictment against a Lithuanian scammer who managed to trick two American tech companies into wiring him $100 million. The scammer, 48-year-old Evaldas Rimasauskas, did so by masquerading as a prominent Asian hardware manufacturer, according to court documents, and tricking employees into depositing tens of millions of dollars into bank accounts in Latvia, Cyprus, and numerous other countries. Rimasauskas was first indicted back in December, but the DOJ only unsealed the documents after arresting the man last week.

After voting some 61 times to repeal Obamacare when they knew Obama would block it – Republicans for the first time failed to repeal it. I guess there’s a difference when you’re in power and you can make it actually happen. Republicans are a disaster and this is yet another example. They can’t get together when they are trying to deliberately screw things up. They failed at being a failure. I guess 2 wrongs do make a right.

Keep in mind that the “vote” occurred in the back rooms where members were polled and they didn’t have the support to pass it. So even though there wasn’t an official vote on the record – there was a vote – believe me!

A little something for the right wing readers:

DNC chief Donna Brazile’s confession that she fed Hillary debate information is troubling on so many levels. First she lied about it saying “As a Christian woman I understand persecution, but I will not sit here and be persecuted,” Ms. Brazile told Fox News. “Your information is false.” It’s not just that she lied, but that she invoked Christ as part of the lie, which makes her claim to be a “Christian woman” a lie too. Even as an Atheist I know that if you’re willing to lie in the name of Christ – you’re not really a believer. Thankfully CNN fired her for her ethical malfunction.

Then she goes on to justify the cheating by saying that she was an advocate for women and minorities. But what this really means is that she thinks women and blacks are inferior and that cheating is justified to make up the difference. That’s just so racist!

Now she’s blaming it all on the Russians hacking the DNC email server. But when the FBI showed up to investigate she denied them access to the evidence, concealing the possibility that the supposed hack might be an inside job. Ultimately Brazile, through helping Hillary cheat helped Trump win the presidency. So we are all stuck with the consequences of her dishonesty.

How do you think Trumpcare will affect you? Looks like it will cost me 2 1/2 times for less coverage. Share your opinions and be respectful.

It’s just too weird having Comey testify about whether Russians hacked the election for Trump when Comey himself hacked the election for Trump. If not for Comey Trump would not be president. But will they ask him the question? I doubt it. All part of the big lie.

Ultimately Trump’s win was Hillary’s fault. But Comey put him over the top, and now he’s testifying about if the Russians did it. This is weird no matter what your political bent is.
