Was reading Wikipedia about this lady, Elaine Chao that Trump may pick for Secretary of Transportation.
Chao's family owns Foremost Shipping, specializing in shipping coal internationally? Is this right?
Foremost flags their vessels with African country Liberia where ships can be registered and they don’t have to comply with any labor regulations? And Chao was Secretary of Labor - under Bush administration the whole 8 years?
Married to Mitch McConnell - and Chao's family gave Mitch millions of dollars - read this on Wikipedia. Maybe as much as $25 million.
McConnell in the Senate - he is majority leader of the Senate. Conflict here too?
Read in Wikipedia about coal mines and Chao cutting more than 100 coal mine safety inspections back in 2005-06 time frame - then there were these mine disasters? Was there a connection? Was Chao favorable to coal cause her family ships it? Just asking. We need to check these things out, right? Or just don't read and ignore?
Do American voters just not keep up with government?
Do politicians in Washington laugh at us?
That's not what we need to abate climate change. We need green energy.
What's going on?
Are we going back 100 years?
