    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

    By Paul B. Farrell, MarketWatch

    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!

    That has been debunked so many times it is now a out right lie. But that is what happens when liberals get their news from the entertainment industry.

    Well let us see here, something we have been doing? Let us take the pipeline. It is a reality but the real question is can the USA benefit. But since it crosses a border Obama gets a say. now instead of the USA getting a cut of something that is going on anyway. Something that has been studied and compromised and reworked to be be safe, it no longer goes near the water, We are doing what we have been doing which is shipping it by rail. And rail is more expensive and more dangerous.
    Same thing can be said with fracking. We have enough of you green weenies as watch dogs. Problem is to many who have no clue and keep barking at every last thing you do not understand.

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