    Don’t know why the Democrat party is so dead-set against harvesting the bountiful sources of energy with which we are so richly blessed. Their priorities seem to be something about worshiping mother earth and lambasting business and denigrating hard-working Americans. Too bad they seem to outnumber and out-vote the rest of us who have enough sense to realize that our country is in a death-spiral and are trying to fix the real problems out there.

    Thousands of acres of rangeland in Montana and Utah, among other areas, were poisoned by improperly controlled fracking fluids. Likewise miles of streams were poisoned.


    Yes, in SOME areas, “fracking” is suitable, but since ’49 many, many, “accidents” have happened. It needs to be strictly regulated, and NOT by regulations like we have now that were written by the “energy” comanies. Among other things, declaring the content of fracking fluids as "Proprietary"" should stop and aLL contents should be released in EIS, EA, or categorical exclusions allowing the practice.

    It’s astonishing to see how much faith Republicans/Fox “news” viewers have that multinational corporations will protect the environment or the people living in it.

    Astonishing and disgusting.

    The very moment the industry drops it’s claims of “proprietary formula” and “intellectual property” when it comes to the stuff they pump into OUR ALL Eco-system we can talk. But not sooner. Put up or shut up!

    Did you hear about the story that all four nuclear plants in South Korea had to be taken off-line because the was a MASSIVE fraud with falsified security-certificates for lots and lots of critical components? That’s industry for you. You can never, ever trust a capitalist…

    “Don’t know why the Democrat party”
    .
    - So, you can’t tell adjectives from nouns.
    .
    “is so dead-set against harvesting the bountiful sources of energy with which we are so richly blessed.”
    .
    - When said “harvesting” includes turning our water into toxic sludge, it becomes a problem.
    .
    “Their priorities seem to be something about worshiping mother earth”
    .
    - That’d be the “mother earth” we live in.
    “and lambasting business and denigrating hard-working Americans. Too bad they seem to outnumber and out-vote the rest of us who have enough sense to realize that our country is in a death-spiral and are trying to fix the real problems out there.”
    .
    - I’m also glad us folk who actually think about things outnumber you more and more at the polls.

    Don’t know why the Republican party is so dead set against harvesting the bountiful solar and wind power that we have been so blessed with.

    FRACKING - It ain’t the only way home, Lisa

    SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. (MarketWatch) — America is a quitter. We’re giving up, surrendering, forfeiting. Yes, throwing the game. Throwing away our future as the world’s superpower. We’re forced to walk off the economic playing field. Not by outside enemies, by our own Congress refusing to play a job-creating economic game.
    -

    We are our own worst enemy in the biggest economic war in world history. And Asia loves it!

    Not to worry. There will be plenty of jobs cleaning up the environmental aftermath. Unpaid jobs, but jobs nonetheless.

    Well the dems sure didn’t say the same for Solyndra.That only cost a billion dollars and they got some of that back as campaign contributions.The dims want some kind of utopia or is that udopia where they don’t work or pay taxes and are supported by those that do. If people who work and pay taxes complane they are racist,greedy and they need to pay more.Unless your a big dim contributor.Warren Buffet,George Soros,Google,GE,the unions that got excempted from Obamacare that don’t pay into Social Security.

    Did it ever occur to you that we use the environment too?

    So, without the profit motive, we would still be living in the Middle Ages. That seems to be what the Dems want. A new Feudal System, with Barack Obama as king.
