Fracking may not be a huge issue where you live; it is where I live!
But even if you’ve never heard of it, you should care, because there is enough natural gas under our own soil to provide our needs for more than the next CENTURY.
The best way to get it is by fracking. The Left doesn’t want us to frack. They claim fracking causes water pollution. Never mind that it’s been done safely for more than 30 years in other communities across the country.
Here in Tompkins County, land-owners legally sold the rights to fracking companies to drill on their land. The Lefties sued and the local liberal judge found in their favor.
The local case will go to a higher court on appeal and I hope the fracking companies and land-owners win, because we need the gas and we can get it safely.
And also because I’m so SICK of the Left’s lies about me and my peeps.
In the 2011 local elections, the Democrat’s campaign was a non-stop barrage of “Republicans don’t CARE about water quality!”
Excuse me? We don’t drink water? We don’t have children? OUR candidates were talking about REGULATING frackers so we could have the gas AND safe water.
I’m so SICK of the Left painting me and mine with this broad “EVIL, RACIST, HOMOPHOBIC, NARROW MINDED, STUPID” brush.
Who’s stupid and narrow minded? The Republicans who learned how fracking is done, brought in representatives from communities where fracking has been going on for years, and talked to the companies that bought and the land-owners that sold the leases? OR the Democrats who just bellowed, “Oh My God Republicans Are So EEEEEVILLLLL”?
We are NOT, dammit. What we WANT is for America to SAFELY and RESPONSIBLY tap local sources of fossil fuels, so we can enjoy lower prices, a higher standard of living, and fewer “blood for oil” wars.
We’re NOT stupid. We know the fossil fuels will run out. Duh. But what’s the point of leaving it in the ground? Huh? It’s not like these green technologies are safe or affordable YET. It’s not like any of them can even heat or cool your home, never mind fuel industry.
It takes ENERGY and lots of it to have the conveniences and technology most of us enjoy. Materials have to be mined and manufactured, transported, assembled, transported, packaged, transported, offered for retail sale, and transported again until finally, you get to have it at your own home or business.
And for now, the FACT is that almost all of this requires fossil fuel.
(Unless you want to use nuclear power plants, which the greenies also abhor, but that’s another whole story.)
Why do you think the cost of food and postage and pretty much everything else you buy has gone up so much in the past 3 years?
Because the cost of FUEL has gone up.
Unless you’re Amish, even the organic produce you buy in season at the farmer’s market has fossil fuels in their past.
And why has fuel gone up?
Because Obama et al. banned U.S. companies from doing off-shore drilling (while selling the rights to other countries, whose drilling operations are not subject to the environmental regulations ours are).
Because Obama et al. canceled drilling leases that were granted under Bush.
Because Obama et al. refused to allow the pipeline from Canada to come here.
Because Obama’s bffs in Tompkins County and elsewhere are trying to legislate and/or sue to stop fracking everywhere they can.
I’m so SICK of it. And I’m especially SICK of the MEDIA’s cooperation in LYING about these things.
Fox News is the only major news source that isn’t acting like the public relations arm of the Democratic National Party. The rest of them are not just grossly left-biased, they’re PROUD of it.
I urge you to go watch the videos posted here:

Then go here. Read and watch the video.
The first clip from FrackNation and another reason to support it
All together, the four videos will take you less than seven minutes to view. I bet it takes you a lot longer than seven minutes to earn the difference between what a fill-up cost under Bush and what it costs now.
If you end up agreeing with me that getting this documentary made is important, please donate $20. It’s a great deal. You’ll help get the truth out so American voters can make INFORMED DECISIONS, and they’ll also send you a copy of the DVD when it’s done. (I own the documentaries these people have made in the past. They’re really good.)
