Why should people who choose to live in more represented areas suffer because the others are now regretting their choices?

Congratulations. This is the dumbest thing I've read today.

No one forced you to live in a city

Unless, you know, you want a job that doesn't involve cows.

Give me a fucking break. How many of those are retired or disabled or voluntarily not working (taking care of the kids, etc)?

Yeah, because poor people are really living it up on welfare.

He's not "bringing back" coal, coal cannot be dispensed with overnight as there are a lot of coal plants. He is trying to fuel them as efficiently as possible

Except he said he was going to bring back all those coal jobs, but "fueling them as efficiently as possible" will mean more automation, which means fewer jobs in an industry that already in terminal decline. Tough luck, all you people in coal country who voted for him. Now you're out of a job, AND probably your healthcare, AND there's no money for education or retraining.

Who's laughing?
