  1. what I want to know is why if this is obviously something we as a country need,coal,why is not the government’s responsibility also to make sure that these mines are safe when our citizens go down there,we cover it as soon as we have a collapse but what’s goin on before that,we should make sure as a country,if this is something we are benefiting from that these men are safe when they go down inside the earth,because I have watched this since the beginning,I watched when the sago mine disaster happened and I thought then they were going to try and make it safer,obviously not,we can only do so much,where were all the equipment that these men needed to get these other miners out before it ended up in death,I don’t understand it and I guess I never will.but I do our government if we can get bush out of office needs help,we are spending soooo much money on this war that is going absoultely no where we don’t have any money to help ourselves,if I was president I would of already been at the mine,but what does he not think it’s worthy of visiting,please remember this when u vote!!I don’t know any of the miners but I feel so bad for them and their families!!I love you guys!!
