  •  I'm not completely opposed to mining (11+ / 0-)

    After all, I live in an old coal mining town in Central Illinois, but mining companies (whether it be coal, iron ore, or any other mineral) are some of the most vicious corporations out there.

    •  Nobody is really opposed to mining (6+ / 0-)

      The opposition is there because the Scott Walker/GOP Mining Law stripped out environmental regulations so out of state corporations can strip mine the hell out of our north woods, pollute the water, and decimate our state to enable them to make more profits.

      Mining is a long standing industry in Wisconsin, but until now it's been regulated.  No longer.  

      Donations to Scott Walker and the GOP are investments that are paid back with mega interest and this is how GT is getting its payday.

      There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.
