Don Blankenship, the CEO of Massey Energy, blasts Reid and Pelosi as "greeniacs," while his company spent millions to defend its right to spew "coal dust on nearby schoolchildren" and the unions are kept out of its mines.
According to Crooksandliars.com:
Don Blankenship inhabits a strange and bizarre world. In his world:
It's fine for elementary school-age children to inhale coal dust while playing at school because Massey Coal "already pays millions of dollars in taxes each year".
Blankenship truly believes that government regulation means "we all better learn to speak Chinese."
He has absolutely no problem paying $3 million to elect state Supreme Court justice Brent Benjamin just ahead of a scheduled hearing of his appeal to overturn a large damage award for driving competitor Harman Mining Corporation into bankruptcy.
Blankenship will spend millions to keep the Massey Energy's workforce non-union, is perfectly happy to discriminate against union workers even if it means being sued and losing, and might hate unions as much as he hates 'greeniacs'.

All this went on while his own compensation increased beyond what a person can normally spend in a decade, let alone a year. More here: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=126072828
Blankenship and his ilk are the true enemies, not just of America, but of humanity and the planet. I know the right is foaming at the mouth, waiting to defend this man . . . but he is despicable . . . and a typical right wing extremist whose hallmark phrase is "me! me! me!'
