|A couple attending an art exhibition at the National Gallery was staring at a portrait that had them completely confused.
The painting depicted three very black and totally naked men sitting on a park bench. Two of the figures had black weenies, but the one in the middle had a pink weenie.
The curator of the gallery realized that they were having trouble interpreting the painting and offered his assessment.
He went on for nearly half an hour explaining how it depicted the sexual emasculation of African-Americans in a predominately white, patriarchal society. “In fact,” he pointed out, “some serious critics believe that the pink weenie also reflects the cultural and sociological oppression experienced by gay men in contemporary society.”
After the curator left, a young man in a Kentucky T-shirt approached the couple and said, “Would you like to know what the painting is really about?”
“Now why would you claim to be more of an expert than the curator of the gallery?” asked the couple.
“Because I’m the guy who painted it,” he replied. “In fact, there are no African-Americans depicted at all. They’re just three Kentucky coal miners, and the guy in the middle went home for lunch.”
Yesterday President Trump signed a Bill to save the coal industry. Then he distracted everyone with an EPIC press conference. Today the hateful, unhinged, angry left is still screaming about his treatment of “Very Fake News” CNN while the coal industry charges ahead.
The man is a genius!

Fulfilling a promise he made to coal miners during his campaign, President Trump signed legislation Thursday ending a key Obama administration coal mining rule.
Trump signed legislation that nixes the Office of Surface Mining’s Stream Protection Rule, a set of Interior Department regulations that put expensive new requirements on coal companies.
Surrounded by lawmakers and coal miners, Trump called the regulations “another terrible job-killing rule” at a signing ceremony in the Oval Office.
“In eliminating this rule, I am continuing to keep my promise to the American people to get rid of wasteful regulations that do absolutely nothing but slow down the economy, hamstring companies, push jobs to other countries,” Trump said.
“This is a major threat to your jobs and we’re going to get rid of this threat,” he added. “We’re going to fight for you.”
The House and the Senate approved the measure through the seldom-used Congressional Review Act, which permits lawmakers to roll back any regulation the Obama administrated implemented from June to his last day in office.
Regulators finalized the stream protection rule in December, but spent most of Obama’s tenure constructing it.
The rules required coal companies to conduct extensive monitoring of any waterways that could potentially be impacted by mining operations.
The legislation is the second Trump has signed into law which undoes the Obama administration’s environmental regulation. He signed a Congressional Review Act resolution Tuesday which nullifies a financial disclosure requirement for energy companies.
Glenn Beck: wants to know what Democrats will do once they get rid of the coal industry and 40+% of America’s energy source?…

I found this on NewsBusters. Spread it around to everyone you know especially in coal states like Virginia , Ohio, Pennsylvania, Colorado and Indiana.
Imagine if John McCain had whispered somewhere that he was willing to bankrupt a major industry? Would this declaration not immediately be front page news? Well, Barack Obama actually flat out told the San Francisco Chronicle (SF Gate) that he was willing to see the coal industry go bankrupt in a January 17, 2008 interview. The result? Nothing. This audio interview has been hidden from the public…until now. Here is the transcript of Obama’s statement about bankrupting the coal industry (emphasis mine):
Let me sort of describe my overall policy.
What I’ve said is that we would put a cap and trade system in place that is as aggressive, if not more aggressive, than anybody else’s out there.
I was the first to call for a 100% auction on the cap and trade system, which means that every unit of carbon or greenhouse gases emitted would be charged to the polluter. That will create a market in which whatever technologies are out there that are being presented, whatever power plants that are being built, that they would have to meet the rigors of that market and the ratcheted down caps that are being placed, imposed every year.
So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can; it’s just that it will bankrupt them because they’re going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted.
That will also generate billions of dollars that we can invest in solar, wind, biodiesel and other alternative energy approaches.
The only thing I’ve said with respect to coal, I haven’t been some coal booster. What I have said is that for us to take coal off the table as a (sic) ideological matter as opposed to saying if technology allows us to use coal in a clean way, we should pursue it.
So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can.
It’s just that it will bankrupt them.
Amazing that this statement by Obama about bankrupting the coal industry has been kept under wraps until this time.
