West Virginia Should Support Power Plus

President Barack Obama's Clean Power Plan has received a lot of attention recently, and in coal-dependent states like West Virginia, the attention has been mostly negative.
One example of this criticism is a rather poorly written opinion piece that recently ran in the Bluefield Daily Telegraph. attacking the President's stance on fossil fuels and dismissing global warming as bogus because our area's summer has been a bit cooler than normal.

Dollar Signs in Kim Davis' Eyes?

Rowan County, Kentucky Clerk Kim Davis
To absolutely no one's surprise, Kim Davis, a county clerk in Kentucky, has seen her mugshot become a rallying banner for religious wingnuts and various conservative presidential candidates.

Davis, as you may recall, was recently sent to jail on a civil contempt charge for defying a judge's order to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. She's become a symbol for those who believe Christianity is under siege. They can point to her mugshot and paint her as a victim of persecution; a hapless believer willing to suffer for her convictions.
