Gaffe machine Joe Biden may already be affecting his VP. It could be that the job of VP has significant side-effects, and Harris is unusually susceptible. Or, as some suspect, Harris is just another Marxist Muppet out of her depth. A problem when it comes to coal country.
Harris was asked about the state’s coal industry. She reassured West Virginia coal miners that even if their jobs disappear under the Biden administration — and the implication was clear that they would disappear — mine workers could transfer their skills to new industries. She then listed several exciting new careers coal miners could consider. The first of these was, and I quote: “reclaiming abandoned land mines.”
Confused Kamala Harris Warns Of West Virginia’s ‘Abandoned Land Mines’ https://t.co/WYmxESG4yx

What she meant to say were mine lands. Land previously mined for coal that could be recovered. Good paying jobs to be sure to what end other than skyrocketing electric rates and dependence on foreign energy?
Harris is on a PR tour to sell her boss’s 1.9 Trillion dollar “American Rescue Plan.” It’s a sleight of hand with which we are all familiar—another form of dependence.
You say some stuff about handing out jobs and money with revenue you don’t have but whose acquisition will destroy jobs (and therefore the ability to pay for that money or the interest on it). It’s a political pyramid scheme.
Politicians pilfer the pockets of generations not yet born for a political point today. By the time they are here, the politicians will be gone, legacy in hand.
And, if Harris is to be believed, fewer West Virginia land “mines.”
