Should be viewed buy all West Virginians
30 December 2011 | by See all my reviews

I am a retired factory worker, and past local union president, who was born and raised in West Virginia.

I asked my wife to get me The Last Mountain movie for Xmas after I had seen a trailer about it. We watched it this evening and I think it is the best Xmas present I received. I have 3 friends who are WV Legislators, and know Sen. Joe Manchin personally. I must say there were many things in the movie I did not know. I also think there are many West Virginia residents who need to be informed of all the facts surrounding this issue. Maybe enough public pressure could offset the lobbyist money on I am a retired factory worker, and past local union president, who was born and raised in the political front.
