    Tea pubs are not at all opposed to giving billionaires tax breaks.

    Shallow fracking is MUCH more profitable, so your opposition to shallow fracking is an unAmerican attack on our basic freedoms.


    And no one except trash drinks tap water. Every decent, hard-working American drinks only bottled water imported from regions with nothing worth fracking.

    Fracking hell!

    Fracking would be much less disturbing if the companies doing it were willing to show America what they are pumping into the earth in their efforts to extract the gas.
    When water suddenly become flammable within a few weeks of fracking occurs, for the company to say it’s a natural event is disingenuous.
    When areas where fracking is being done start experiencing new or increased levels of seismic activity, people have a right – and perhaps a duty – to be concerned.
    Natural gas, oil, and coal are all finite. Oil rigs go silent, coal mines close, and areas being fracked will also close. What will be left behind?
    We became a great nation through education and innovation and invention. Our education system has dropped in world standards, and patent law and corporate copyright protections prevent innovators and inventors from developing competing industries.
    We must change patent and copyright law and we need to invest in renewable energy sources.

    Better than giving billions to the Government.

    Paul Ryan’s budget would increase my taxes vastly, once he tells us how he’s going to cut tax rates for the rich by one third and still increase revenues. That difference has to come from the poor and the middle class. Or maybe he can’t do math. Hmm. Which is it?

    I own property on the Marcellus Shale with well water. Before I can even begin to consider supporting fracking I need to know what chemicals are going to be used. “Trade secrets” doesn’t fly with New Yorkers even with the governor in the pocket of the fracking companies.

    Well this is awkward. Going after an oil company’s deductions on her day off.

    I did not call either a thief, I am saying giving tax breaks is a better use of funds then to tax and spend.

    “I did not call either a thief, I am saying giving tax breaks is a better use of funds then to tax and spend.”

    Not that this has anything to do with today’s cartoon, but are you willing to allow that tax and spend is better than borrow and spend?

    “Oil rigs go silent, coal mines close” – & the sun does not always shine & the wind does not always blow. So those are out, too.”

    The sun is not projected to go out for a few billion years. Wind will be around at least as long as sunshine. The sun is always out somewhere on the planet. Ditto for wind. Coal and oil are much more finite, and their mining and the emissions that result from their burning is much more dangerous. Otherwise, you make a good point.

    Coraryan, once an oil field or coal mine goes empty, it stays empty. Unless something terrible has occurred, the sun will come out sooner or later, and, the wind will blow again, sooner or later. There are other things such as hydrogen gas, geothermo, hydro, and even humans peddling bikes to generate power. There’s a way to deal with the obesity problem AND reduce dependence on fossil fuels.
    Dealing in absolutes does you no service, Cora. Shutting up doesn’t help one learn, and freezing to death is an uncomfortable way to die. Open your mind, neighbor. If you don’t like my ideas, offer some of your own.
