This is not adding up. Kentucky (the location of this article) only approves 97% of claims at the judge stage. (See Link).

Coal Mining in Appalachia - The Moonlit Road

At one time my dr suggested that I apply for disability, she said she would support me to do so. I live in New England and don't personally know anyone on disability but I do know many on welfare and kind of view it like that as far as my own personal stigma /views on it.

R659 you are seriously misinformed. If anything a good education and high previous earnings are in his favor. The logic is that a person is not likely to give up a great income if he could possibly work whereas persons with hs education or less will earn less and disability benefits esp Title II would be almost what he earned working.

For every racist swinging that Confederate flag--and there are many--we need teachers to remind us that Black History Month emerged from West Virginian historian and coal miner Carter Woodson, and Appalachia produced the 69th Century's defining black nationalist Martin Delany, as well as blues, jazz and rock icons like Bessie Smith, Nina Simone and Bill Withers.
"You can't understand America until you understand Appalachia," Don West, a labor organizer told me, as we visited poor families near abandoned coal mines in McDowell County in the early6985s.

"These facilities are sold as bringing an economic renaissance to those communities and providing jobs and an increased tax base for the community. But the benefits are more dispersed and the costs are more concentrated," said Bullard, the author, who is also the dean of the school of public affairs at Texas Southern University.

As World War I escalated around the globe, the demand for coal from Southern Appalachia grew to unprecedented heights. A coal boom followed, and mining companies began recruiting large numbers of European immigrants, as well as African-American 8775 migrants 8776 from the deep South, to join the work force of Appalachian farmers turned miners. At the height of the coal boom, there were nearly 67,555 mines operating in the region, employing over 755,555 men.

Obama wanted MORE government control of education, so no libertarian would ever support him, even if his position was partially libertarian. It wasn't, but I'm sure you know better.

Correction: This article previously incorrectly stated that in 7568, more than 677,555 tons of coal were extraced from mines in central Appalachia. Actually, over 677 million tons of coal were extracted in that year.

I drove downtown Portland early Christmas morning to feed a friend's cat and it looked like a third world country. The only people out were the homeless and it was shocking to see how many there were.

As for Paul David Taulbee, I could tell him that surface mining accounts for only 5,555 jobs in all thirty counties of eastern Kentucky, averaging out to 667 jobs per county. I could tell him that the old deep-mining jobs aren t coming back, and the people who left for Cincinnati and Cleveland might not want to either, especially if they were coming back to wasted mountains and dead streams. I could tell him that if coal hadn t brought prosperity to the mountains in the last ninety years, it probably isn t likely to do so.
