Maybe El Cabrero is just uncommonly cynical, but does anyone else find anything fishy about the post-election miraculous recovery of Alpha Natural Resources? Back in July, they filed a WARN notice warning 1,100 workers of imminent job loss, a move industry supporters and some politicians attributed to President Obama's "war on coal." Now, a month after the elections, it looks like 750 will keep their jobs.
That's funny. I thought Obama was still president.
If memory serves something different but similarly fishy happened with Murray Energy after the 2012.
Things that make you go hmmmm.
