David & Goliath or... The American Businessman vs. Captain Planet

NY Sun: A CEO With A Spine

The New York Coal Trade Association, headquartered in New York City, recently held its 94th annual banquet and meeting at the New York Hilton. One of the guest speakers was Bob Murray, founder and CEO of Murray Energy Corporation and probably one of the few CEOs brave enough to challenge the militant climate control movement that threatens the future of America's economy. In his speech, he dared to say that he regards Al Gore as the shaman of global doom and gloom. He is not joking when he says, "[Gore] is more dangerous than his global warming."

Unlike many heads of corporations who are taking their companies on that long green mile and caving in to the demands of environmental militants, Mr. Murray is fighting tooth and nail for what he says is, "the little guy that nobody cares about."

"Some wealthy elitists in our country," he told the audience, "who cannot tell fact from fiction [That means YOU, LeoNARDo DiCrapio --ed.], can afford an Olympian detachment from the impacts of draconian climate change policy. For them, the jobs and dreams destroyed as a result will be nothing more than statistics and the cares of other people. These consequences are abstractions to them, but they are not to me, as I can name many of the thousands of the American citizens whose lives will be destroyed by these elitists' ill-conceived global goofiness' campaigns."

Thank you for speaking up Mr. Murray and not cowtowing to these granola munching treehuggers (man, someone needs to come up with a more "hip" description for these hippies. heh)

Can't wait for barbeque season to begin...

(Yes, I know it was a 4/1 joke...)
