Coal Miners forced to attend R-Money Campaign Event

The working class and the employing class have nothing in common.
I never quite understood the Regular guy Romney strategy of photo-ops with R-Money shown rubbing elbows with working class joes, his Brooks Brothers jacket off and his silk shirt sleeves impeccably rolled up (illustrating he's ready to "work"). But, at this point it doesn't matter.

Romney had a photo-op with Ohio Coal Miners owned by Murray Energy. Multiple miners allege they were forced to attend. Many being forced to take an unpaid day off. Murray Energy CFO Rob Moore brushed aside the allegations,
"Our managers communicated to our workforce that the attendance at the Romney event was mandatory."
See? They weren't forced! It was just mandatory they go there. Rob Moore did confirm pay was docked for all the workers.

Next on the Murray Energy Corporate Agenda is forcing the miners to take an unpaid day off to go vote and making voting for Romney "Mandatory" for employment.

Wage Slavery and Corporate Domination are here. And when your Corporate Owners tell you to do something you do it. It would be an awful shame if Murray Energy had to fire those miners for having the temerity to vote against R-Money...

Murray Energy has donated more than $900,000 to politicians in the last year — all of them Republicans.

With the Faux News and Mainstream Media pushing ceaselessly for Willard Mitt Romney his history as a cowardly Chicken Hawk, a slimy Vulture Capitalist, a swindler who has stolend billions of dollars and the livelyhood's of thousands of Americans are immaterial.

The 1% see an opportunity with Romney and Ryan to cement their strangehold upon the throats of the American people. Once they have implanted Romney in the White House the Rich will usher in an Era of Wage Slavery and Corporate Bondage.

The fact that Rick Santorum's grandfather worked in a coal mine until he died at the age of 72, and Ann Romney's father and grandfather, were both coal miners isn't lost on me. (she didn't mention that her grandfather suffered from black lung and was hurt in a mining accident.)The cruelty that continues to rain down on those miners as a direct result of the heartlessness of the Republican party is truly ironic. The fact that they lost their pay is tragic. There's nothing clean about coal, period. Good post Gene.

Thanks as always for your input Patricia.

Conservatives are really sold on the limiting of the vote and they're allowing the Rich to force people vote their Bosses pocketbook.

Murray Energy is another Mining Corporation which committed thousands of violations under the Bush Cheney Regime because they knew they'd never be prosecuted.

As I've shown before the only thing Capitalism has given Miners is Death.

Yeah, politics is funny, like when metrosexual Obama rolls up his sleeves. He'd never been in a factory his whole life until he started campaigning.
