Here in Australia, we have a bunch of mining Bobs that this song/show could have been written about by just substituting in their names *cough* Rhinehart *cough* Palmer *cough* Forrest. I hear they like to get together to swill children's tears while having poodles lick peanut butter off their junk.

I wanted to save mine too! Must have a science/lab medicine/geology interest to appreciate it! Not to mention it was three weeks of agony, alone.

  • As others here have noted, Bob Murray disputed claims for black lung disease benefits by his miners when they applied for them. In September of this year, Murray himself applied for the same benefits. Someone from his own company should have disputed his application, so he could see how it felt. Murray is the one who advocated for Trump to withdraw from any international climate change agreements we were part of, and fought to weaken regulations to prevent black lung disease. My grandfather died from black lung disease. He received no benefits from the coal company he worked for, which refused to supply filter masks for their employees. It was cheaper just to replace their employees. My grandmother and her children took care of him at home as he slowly suffocated to death, after a period of months. Bob Murray should have been in prison for 30 years because of his actions. He did not deserve the quick and easy death he had, compared to the miners who died as a result of his actions. I hope there is a squirrel in Hell sitting on his head and tormenting him while he shovels coal for eternity, with no bathroom breaks......
