    That is fairly accurate. Same old same old. Nothing has changed according to the Huffpost. On the other hand, Huffpost isn't suggesting anything that will help fix this same-old situation. Which is generally true of everyone involved in journalism. They can only take us back to where we have already been. They are, as usual, focused on the problem. Huffpost is very nice sometimes, but it depends on popularity with its base. Its hamstrung just like Fox is, can't pivot, can only say certain things.

    George Carlson the late comedian says that our politicians don't care about us. They want us to believe that they do but don't, actually. Is Huffpost unaware of this? Seems like it. That makes me wonder if it can have anything productive to say.

    This isn't surprising, right? The Dems could have claimed the same in 2017 (and they did).

    One of my heroes (yes, I'm a geek), is a guy named Alan Kay. He's a luminary in the world of programming, and he's a purveyor of pithy quotes. One of my favorite Alan Kay quotes is:

    "The correct perspective is worth 80 IQ points."

    It's a sort of meta-perspective. So while I agree Huff Post didn't offer solutions, I feel like they've provided a really well stated, powerful perspective.

    That one. I know it looks like I'm a terrible speller, but the truth is that one day the server got mad at me and inserted a script that misspells one or two of my words whenever I post. I think its a rotten Xenforo addon that got hit by a cosmic particle. That can happen very rarely. I've tried fixing it, clearing my cookies and switching browsers. Nothing works, so I know its got to be a problem with RF's servers.

    All necessary losses. But think about how much good we can do with a massive infrastructure program - something polls show most people want - making up for the losses in coal, pipeline closure, etc.

    Be forward looking, brother!

    That was back during the height of the Tea Party. It hasn't changed, apparently.

    Yes!! who cares if these people loose their homes.... it is just necessary collateral losses. Forget "build the infrastructure and then transfer the people from one industry to the other"... NOPE, KILL the jobs and hopefully in 3 years they can get another.

    That's great planning in looking forward. ;)

    I knew as soon as Biden became president all of a sudden these metrics would matter.

    We can't keep doing idiotic things just because there will be job losses. Slave traders? Whalers? Buggy manufacturers? It is now time for the coal miners to move on.

    And like I said, we could generate many jobs (more than would be lost) by fixing our infrastructure.THAT is the future.

    The article's tile sounds like pure snark.
    Pubs would never expect Dems to unite
    around the opposition's agenda.

    Clearly Trump should have saved all the coal jobs even if it meant killing cheaper renewables and turning us into a 3rd world nation.

    The answer is total Marxism of course where job loss just can't happen because the state does not permit it. After all, capitalism means that sometimes people become unemployed and that is just too horrible to allow.

    So, comrade, are you with us?
