Why was Buchanan closed temporarily? Hopefully this wasn't a federal regulator taking out his frustrations over Consol allowing the NRA talk to some union employees at the Blacksville mine. The union all ready had their response to that, with a one day shut down of Blacksville. The unions need to get over the idea that they own their members. Union members can join the NRA and they don't don't have to vote for some socialist like Obama either.
