So, About That Ethane Cracker…….

Symbolic vessel of W.Va's hopes & dreams.


So, when a state is trying to attract billions of dollars of new investment, the best way to scare off new capital is to increase costs. That’s what unions do. When you can find a union that saves the consumer the first dime, let me know.

Luckily, the folks who run the unions are just as tone-deaf to the voters as the politicians whose strings they pull.

Meet Sue Edgel. Public employee. Union member. Moundsvillean. Carbohydrate enthusiast. Seems like someone you wouldn’t want to sit by on a plane.

Now, she’s a video star, and budding meme in the tradition of William Hung.

The face of a trade union campaign in West Virginia whose goal is to prevent construction of a half-billion dollar natural gas facility unless it uses all Union labor.

Sure, a Chas. Daily Mail piece this morning goes a long way this morning toward debunking the complaints of Team Obama’s local labor unit.

Dominion spokesman Chuck Penn said six of the seven subcontractors hired so far are union. Currently, 50 of the 80 employees at the site are local, Penn said.

In the union’s TV ad that has been airing across the state, a woman asks, “What do we get if we don’t get Dominion’s jobs? We’re going to get nothing.”

Hilariously, in the buried lede, Edgel’s husband reportedly works for one of the union contractors on the massive project, perhaps even on the Natrium Dominion site.

According to Facebook, her son Matt works for an out-of-state drilling & trucking contractor; it’s unclear whether she believes Pennsylvania should stop him or his paychecks at the border. Matt appears to have a poor opinion of Barack Hussein Obama via MySpace, so I can’t imagine he’s popular in this union home.





Sue Edgel is straight out of Big Labor central casting. At least she’s better on TelePrompter than POTUS. She’s been a secretary in Marshall County schools for years, and a member of a public sector union. Just a couple years ago, she helped cost taxpayers thousands of wasted dollars in lawyer bills when she and co-workers sued the school board for alleged employment discrimination & favoritism.

Luckily, judges didn’t agree that she and her litigious mob deserved to be paid the same money as secretaries who worked a full month or two more every year. If you work 260 days, you deserve more pay than those who only work 200 with less responsibility.

Oh, and was her attorney a supporter of former Supreme Court Justice Warren McGraw’s rape-themed re-election campaign? Absolutely. #McGrawObamaUnionsRapeTortTeam

The people trying to keep jobs out of West Virginia are exactly the same ones who’ve done such a swell job running the place for the last 80 years. Trial lawyers, socialist union leaders and incumbent politicians. Lather, rinse, repeat.

What does this all mean? It means unions are willing to spend thousands of their members’ dollars to try to keep the rest of us from getting and having new jobs. It means they would rather choose who gets to eat the only pie, rather than trying to make more, larger pies.

It means they will have succeeded when anyone sites an ethane cracker or styrene plant on the Ohio River shores…..in Ohio.

Why would anyone choose to do business here, with people like these at the tiller?



Possibly a Sue Edgel sighting (at far right of photo) with anti-commerce Del. Orphy Klempa and “self-described Obama Democrat” Sen. Jeff Kessler. Like Snoop, these folks often travel in packs.

If anyone near a DiCarlos can confirm this photo, we’d be much obliged.
