    Coal Company Cuts Off Ex-Miners From Their Health Benefits

    By Rebecca Leber on April 19, 2014 at 2:50 pm

    More than one-thousand ex-coal miners are losing their promised health benefits in eight months. Murray Energy redirected the blame in its announcement this week to the Obama administration, insisting that the largest independent coal company in the U.S. is the real victim here — of the so-called war on coal.

    “Murray Energy’s inability to provide these benefits is, in part, due to the destruction of the coal industry, including our markets, by the Obama Administration and its appointees and supporters, who have eliminated the livelihoods of thousands of coal miners, and their families, by the forced closing of 392 coal-fired electric power plants in America, now and in the immediate future,” Murray said in a statement confirming the cuts. “Due to these action and devastated coal markets, Murray Energy is unable to support these benefits.”

    The affected workers are all non-union retirees at five West Virginia mines, which Murray bought out from Consol Energy last year. Unionized coal workers were not affected, but the move impacts anyone belonging to the broad “supervisor” category. “Consol Energy’s hope and expectation was that Murray Energy would honor these obligations beyond the one year period that was negotiated as part of our agreement,” Consol said in a statement reacting to Murray Energy’s decision. “While we respect the fact that Murray Energy is a different company with different priorities, this is an unfortunate and disappointing decision.”

    @goldietaylor: Clearly Twitter is a public forum. It is not, however, the great equalizer some make it out to be…

    I disagree. Twitter IS the great equalizer because it allows regular folks to interact and respond to pundits who were once regarded as infallible and untouchable. No longer can pundits, like Goldie, spew their bs without correction, and that’s why she and others are trying to diminish the power of Twitter with these rants.

    • jds09

      So true. One of the things I love so much about twitter, it showcases the truly smart and exposes wannabees. You have to be a clear thinker to state and defend your position in 140 characters. There’s no PR department to shield pundits from letters, they get it straight up and unfiltered.

      Goldie is good when she does her series of tweets when SHE decides to “go in” on a person/or issue and her fan base rallies around to watch. This approach gives her time to think thru her comments, there’s no shame in that. But she gets mad quick when she thinks she’s under attack (and I suspect out of her depth) then she starts to block and/or dismiss people.

      I bet it’s her twitter presence that gets her those talking head gigs. She should think about biting the hands that feed her.

    The £20m Fabergé egg that was almost sold for scrap
    A scrap metal dealer bought an ornament to be melted down for its gold – until he read a Telegraph article revealing it to be a £20 million Fabergé egg

    He intended to sell it on to a buyer who would melt it down, turning a quick profit of a few hundred pounds. But prospective buyers thought he had over-estimated the price and turned him down.

    The egg languished in his kitchen for years until one night in 2012, when he Googled “egg” and “Vacheron Constantin”, a name etched on the timepiece inside.

    The result was a Telegraph article published a year earlier, featuring a picture of his egg and the title: “Is this £20 million nest-egg on your mantelpiece?” The dealer – who wishes to remain anonymous, given his newfound wealth – contacted the Fabergé expert named in the article, Kieran McCarthy of Mayfair jeweller Wartski.

    Mr McCarthy said: “He saw the article and recognised his egg in the picture. He flew straight over to London – the first time he had ever been to Europe – and came to see us. He hadn’t slept for days.

    “He brought pictures of the egg and I knew instantaneously that was it. I was flabbergasted – it was like being Indiana Jones and finding the Lost Ark.”

    Mr McCarthy flew to the US to verify the discovery.

    “It was a very modest home in the Mid West, next to a highway and a Dunkin’ Donuts. There was the egg, next to some cupcakes on the kitchen counter.

    Can we finally talk about Scandal?

    No fear of folks being spoiled?

    Come on. I know a bunch of y’all watch Scandal.

    • TresL

      That episode packed a lot in one hour maybe too much because there were so many things happening that begged for more explanation. For example, I thought Mya Pope was trying to assassinate the Prez for some random terrorist organization; but, it appears she wanted him dead to free Olivia from that relationship. If so, how and why did she hook up with Adnan?

      • rikyrah

        Killing Fitz was about:
        a) freeing Olivia
        b) making money

        There are those who believe Mama and Papa Pope were working together, but I don’t think that.

        Been thinking about it, and I don’t think Mama and Papa Pope were working together. Remember what Mama Pope said to Adnan when she said
        she would find the bomb maker and Adnan thought SHE was the bomb maker.

        ” I don’t make Bombs. I make MONEY…..besides, who would be the patsy? Certainly, not me.”

        Papa Pope made Mama Pope his patsy.

        Mama Pope being locked up for 20+ years, she didn’t know how things had advanced. Remember, she was shocked that you could use a cellphone
        to detonate a bomb.

        And, she probably wasn’t up on foreign accounts and wire transfers. She hadn’t had the time to set up her own accounts in offshore banks.
        She only trusted the money she could feel, and Papa Pope knew this, which is why he tricked Harrison into giving up the location of the
        bank, which he knew was Mama Pope’s weakness.

        He doesn’t kill her, because she’s Olivia’s mother. Has no problem holding her hostage, but won’t kill her.

        Same reason she won’t kill him – he’s Olivia’s father. Some goon code, I guess.

        • TresL

          So, did Adnan and those Ukrainian terrorists also want the Prez dead? Also, what was the point of Mya stabbing Rowan if she didn’t want him dead?

          • rikyrah

            They wanted the President dead…don’t you remember when they were planting the bomb and the guy was going on and on about America paying for what they had done and Maya just dismissed him with ‘ Yeah, yeah, yeah’ – LOL

            Mya stabbed him to make a point. As she told Olivia – if I’d wanted him DEAD, he’d be dead.

          • TresL

            Okay, I remember that but still what about Adnan? I usually re-watch Scandal at least once and sometimes twice because I always feel like I missed something. I haven’t re-watched it yet; but, obviously I need to.

            Do you agree that Charlie gave Quinn the info on Huck’s family to break them up?

          • rikyrah

            Adnan is a gun for hire. She was all about the money too. One of her specialties was making money from tragedies, which is where Harrison came in – he knew that was one of her skills. She’s set up terrorist attacks, and then find a way to make money from it.

            Charlie totally gave Quinn the file to break her and Huck up – he knew that one way or the other, it would ruin Quinn/Huck.

          • TresL

            It seems that Rowan only helped Liv take down B613 to get Jake out and plot his way back in.

            Also, drunk Mellie was too funny when she told Fitz that there was someone inside the White House that wanted him dead too.

          • rikyrah

            yes…Papa Pope has been working overtime to get back to his ‘other child’ – B613.

            Drunk Mellie is hilarious.

          • TresL

            I think it’s really deep that the SS Agent, Tom, killed Fitz’s son. When that comes out, Fitz is going to have a nervous breakdown.

          • rikyrah

            I….I still can’t handle Tom. That’s so deep on so many levels..I just can’t deal with it.

          • TresL

            The other thing that ‘s interesting is that B613 is supposed to be tasked with protecting the Republic at all costs. Did that mean protecting it from Sally too or was Rowan just trying to give Liv what she wanted which was Fitz’s re-election? Is it possible that it didn’t matter to him who won the election and that he would have killed Fitz’s son regardless of the election outcome?

          • rikyrah

            I think Rowan didn’t care who was President – as long as he got B613 back.. But, Olivia wanted Fitz as President, so he helped him. I think Rowan sees B613 as his ‘other child’, so Fitz had taken away 2 of his children, so Fitz had to pay.

          • TresL

            Poor Fitz. He desperately wanted to win a presidential election for real this time; but, look what it cost him. He lost his son, Liv, found out his dad raped his wife and that’s just what he is aware of. He’s unknowingly living his life grateful to the two people who killed his son.

          • isonprize

            I wonder if he cut himself. They ALL cray-cray!

          • rikyrah

            I honestly think Mama Pope stabbed him, but like she said, she wasn’t doing it it to KILL him – he’d actually be dead. She was just trying to teach him a lesson.

    • crazycanuck

      Is this show even about a crisis manager anymore?

      • rikyrah

        Olivia resolved the crisis by realizing SHE was problem and resolved the crisis.

        • crazycanuck

          I think it has gone to far off track.

    Obamacare helping millions register to vote
    03/28/14 06:54 AM—Updated 03/28/14 12:12 PM
    By Zachary Roth

    It’s the right’s worst nightmare: Obamacare working to boost not just the number of Americans who have affordable health insurance—but also the number who are registered to vote. And it could be coming true.

    Take it from Rush Limbaugh.

    “What do you really think is going on?” the conservative radio host asked his listeners while discussing the Affordable Care Act (ACA) last October. “Voter registration. In addition to you going to get your health care, there is obviously massive Democrat voter registration going on at these exchanges.”

    Limbaugh isn’t entirely wrong.

    Under the terms of an agreement announced this week between California and an alliance of good government groups, the state will mail voter registration forms to 4 million people who applied for Obamacare via California’s online exchange. The deal could end up creating 400,000 new registered Golden State voters—the actual numbers will be available later this year.

    Nationwide, Obamacare could ultimately be responsible for registering anywhere from 3 to 7 million voters—potentially over 10% of the total number of eligible voters who aren’t registered today—over the next eight years.

    At least eight states and the District of Columbia are still allowing

    April 14 analysis by consulting firm Avalere Health.

    These extended enrollment periods are aimed at people who struggled to complete their applications due to technical glitches on the marketplaces over the last six months.

    Enrollments can also take place for other reasons throughout the year. Marriage, job loss and interstate relocation are all factors that let people to sign up for new health insurance regardless of normal deadlines.

    HealthCare.gov’s special enrollment period ended on April 15. In several states, however, the general public can still sign up for plans relatively freely if they attest that they had trouble signing up over the last six months.

    These states include Nevada, where consumers have until May 30 to complete their applications. In the District of Columbia and

    Deadbeat on the Range

    APRIL 17, 2014

    Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital.

    Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans? No, of course not.

    So what’s the difference between the fictional loser and Cliven Bundy, the rancher in Nevada who owes the government about $1 million and has been grazing his cattle on public land for more than 20 years? Near as I can tell, one wears a cowboy hat. Easterners, especially clueless ones in politics and the press, have always had a soft spot for a defiant white dude in a Stetson.

    This phony event has brought out the worst of the gun-waving far right, and the national politicians who are barely one degree of separation from them. Hundreds of heavily armed, camouflaged supporters of the scofflaw turned out Saturday in Nevada, training their rifles on public employees who were trying to do their job. The outsiders looked like snipers ready to shoot the police. If you changed that picture to Black Panthers surrounding a lawful eviction in the inner city, do you think right-wing media would be there cheering the outlaws?

    When Bravo Comes to Charleston

    By JIM RUTENBERG
    APRIL 18, 2014

    CHARLESTON, S.C. — For the last few years Charleston has been getting the sort of high praise it has not seen since before Reconstruction.

    Travel & Leisure and Condé Nast Traveler have named it the best city in the United States. Bon Appétit has declared Husk, the pride of its trailblazing food scene, the third-most important restaurant in the country. Its Spoleto music festival has been called by The Wall Street Journal “a world-class event in a first-class setting.”

    Finally, it seemed, Charleston was getting its long-deserved due as an international capital of refined culture and distinctive taste after shaking the degradations of the Civil War, Hurricane Hugo and Borat — the “Da Ali G Show” character who blew through the society circuit here with an indelible display of lasciviousness several years ago.

    Then, Bravo came to town.

    More specifically, its reality show “Southern Charm.” The network billed it as a peek into the “notoriously closed society of Charleston” starring “a group of the city’s most charismatic gentlemen and their Southern belle equals.”

    Including the Young and the Rich
    White House Hosts ‘Next Generation’ Young and Rich

    By JAMIE JOHNSON
    APRIL 18, 2014

    On a crisp morning in late March, an elite group of 100 young philanthropists and heirs to billionaire family fortunes filed into a cozy auditorium at the White House.

    Their name tags read like a catalog of the country’s wealthiest and most influential clans: Rockefeller, Pritzker, Marriott. They were there for a discreet, invitation-only summit hosted by the Obama administration to find common ground between the public sector and the so-called next-generation philanthropists, many of whom stand to inherit billions in private wealth.

    “Moon shots!” one administration official said, kicking off the day on an inspirational note to embrace the White House as a partner and catalyst for putting their personal idealism into practice.

    The well-heeled group seemed receptive. “I think it’s fantastic,” said Patrick Gage, a 19-year-old heir to the multibillion-dollar Carlson hotel and hospitality fortune. “I’ve never seen anything like this before.” Mr. Gage, physically boyish with naturally swooping Bieber bangs, wore a conservative pinstripe suit and a white oxford shirt. His family’s Carlson company, which owns Radisson hotels, Country Inns and Suites, T.G.I. Friday’s and other brands, is an industry leader in enforcing measures to combat trafficking and involuntary prostitution.

    A freshman at Georgetown University, Mr. Gage was among the presenters at a breakout session, titled “Combating Human Trafficking,” that attracted a notable group of his peers. “The person two seats away from me was a Marriott,“ he said. “And when I told her about trafficking, right away she was like, ‘Uh, yeah, I want to do that.’ ”

    Justin McAuliffe, a 24-year-old heir to the Hilton hotel fortune, was similarly impressed by the crowd. “Hilton, Marriott and Carlson,” he said. “That is cool.”

    The daylong conference was organized by Thomas Kalil, a deputy director for technology and innovation in the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, with the help of Nexus, a youth organization based in Washington that seeks to “catalyze” the next generation of billionaire philanthropists and other stakeholders.

    Mr. Kalil moved nimbly among the affluent participants and through the ornate halls of the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, where the summit was held. “A lot of this is not just, you know, collaborations between the administration and philanthropists,” he said, “but philanthropists finding each other, finding other philanthropists with shared interests.”

    Ohio couple married 70 years die 15 hours apart

    When Helen Felumlee passed away at the age of 92 Saturday morning, her family knew her husband Kenneth Felumlee, 91, wouldn’t be slow to follow her. The couple couldn’t bear to be apart very long, and Kenneth passed away only 15 1/2 hours after his wife of 70 years.

        Thank you.

        What really struck me in the article was that when his wife was ill, Mr. Felumlee would hold his wife’s hand, but not look at her because he could not bear to see her in pain.

        They are now together forever with The Lord.

          • qosine

            I started giving the Pulitzer the side eye once
            I realized how whacked Mo Dowd was at NYT. Then when I saw George Will had one,
            like why are all these performing moralists winning these prizes? Really depressing.

            It looks like w/the rise of the Goldwater Right and Emo Left, the prizes started to both reflect and advance their brand of bitter morality tales — or something.

            I like to go back and read the works from other categories and/or decades and find really fantastic journalists/reporters. The St. Petersburg Times won a prize for this utterly fantastic series of elder abuse, which lead to
            major reform of guardian/conservatorship laws to protect our Elders from criminal lawyers, guardians, relatives.

            That’s the kind of writing that deserves the
            Pulitzer.

          it’s one of the most brilliant masterpieces in musical theater. the ‘ couple’ of the show basically is only together for a two-minute dance. that’s how they get to express their passion – a two minute dance.

    so how many people see the scene where the Isrealites are making golden idols and adorning themselves with gold and such as Moses is speaking to The Lord and think about all the people who love that bling bling???

      Ahh, the golden calf. Where’s Ron Paul and Junior? And Romney, Gingrich, Palin — well the lot of them?

    Wait, so then after Ramses comes back from the beat down God via Moses gave him, then this heffa scoffs at him like did you kill him? and Pharoah’s like naw…his God is too strong…chick basically looks at him like…punk azz bish…damn Nefertiri…lol

    Finally thought…I always wonder how long it took him to do that thing where he essentially flips that sheet over his shoulder and walked away (from this scene: You Will Be My Wife)

    I’m betting he either just had the grace of movement to do it or it took like 2million takes…lol.

    Oh, and I still say “…let it be written, so let it be done..” and my lil sister has NO IDEA what the heck I’m taling about…lol

    • rikyrah

      I think he has the natural grace of movement. Yul just seemed to roll like that.

    • GreenLadyHere

      lamh36 – –He appears not 2 need much direction/coaching in –stage movement. :>) IMHO

  • lamh36

    Also too, for the time for the film, I’m wondering if the film producers purposely mad Brynner’s skirts MUCH shorter than Heston. At first I though that Heston was just taller, but then I noticed that Brynner’s skirts were even shorter than the other “noblemen” from the film.

    I mean did they run out of fabric for Brynner’s costumes or did some enterprising costume designer see those legs and arms on Yul and think…hmmm short shirts and short skirts only for him..lol

    • rikyrah

      hey…they knew what they had in Yul. The man was walking swag even back then. you gotta use what you got, and they had to sell this movie anyway they could.
