Why Voting For a Fractavist Socialist Makes the Most Sense

Even to a gun-toting Texan.  The genius of American democracy is that it’s the first government in history that divides power into three equal branches – the Judicial, Legislative and Executive. Had the authors of the Constitution wanted to elect a leader from the majority power in the Legislature, we would have a Prime Minister, and a parliamentary democracy. The Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, would be Prime Minister as the head of the majority party in parliament. Likewise, we would not have a bicameral legislature, a Senate and a Congress, we would have one legislative parliament, a House of Commons. (The House of Lords are increasingly irrelevant.) In short, there would be far fewer checks and balances on power in Washington. Even in theory. Under our scheme, ideal balance […]

#$hillary Gets Fracked ! The Bern Wins ! So Does Insulting Fat Oligarch

In the snows of New Hampshire, where the average Democratic voter knows a Fracking #Shillary when they see one. There are only two people running for President that are not funded by Wall Street, the frack lobbyists or the Kochs. And #Shillary is not one of them. Not by a fracking mile. Only The Bern is not bought and paid for or a self-funded insulting fat oligarch. . . that uses Spray Net. . .  #Shillary’s regulatory response to fracking is local zoning – “Home Rule”. Just Home Rule. And nothing but Home Rule. Who paid for that ? (Hint: Rhymes with “smackers”) Warning to women voters: If you criticize #Shillary, you may be the target of a Feminist Sharia fatwa  Or dissed by her cadaverous sex fiend hubby . . . .

Fracking The People: Frackers Allowed to "Cheap-Out" on Safety

Once again, Industry & the “Regulators” demonstrate a “depraved indifference” – they care more about the bottom line than peoples’ lives.  Republicans want LESS regulations so Industry can CHEAP-OUT even more!   Federal Gas Storage Regulations Likely to Mimic Industry’s Guidelines   Federal pipeline agency’s response to Aliso Canyon disaster will likely lean on industry proposals that don’t require emergency shutoffs or safer pipes. By Phil McKenna, InsideClimate News Feb 8, 2016 Utility staff and outside experts jointly work on securing a relief well at the Aliso Canyon gas field. Credit: REUTERS/Dean Musgrove/Pool Federal regulators say they may propose safety rules as a response to  the three-and-a-half-month methane leak in California, but the rules may not address two key issues that turned Aliso Canyon into a disaster: emergency shutoff valves […]

BUYING SCIENCE - How Industry Fracks The System

Meet the ‘rented white coats’ who defend toxic chemicals How corporate-funded research is corrupting America’s courts and regulatory agencies BELLEVUE, Ohio — At 2:15 in the morning, an insomniac corporate defense lawyer in San Francisco finished crafting a “revolutionary” scientific theory. Now Evan Nelson of the law firm Tucker Ellis & West needed a scientist willing to publish it in a medical journal. If his theory were given scientific validity, Nelson could use it to win lawsuits. Nelson defended companies that had exposed people to asbestos, a heat-resistant, fibrous mineral. Asbestos causes several deadly diseases, including mesothelioma, a rare cancer that often drowns the lungs in fluid. Nelson had expressed frustration with the argument that asbestos is the only known cause of mesothelioma. After scouring the scientific literature and applying […]

Henry Cooper is gone.  He was, among many other accomplishments, the founder of Otsego 2000, which led the way in the fight against fracking in New York state. Henry Cooper also was the best writer the Cooper family ever produced. His insights were original and keen. His prose was clear, concise, precise and unmannered, not unlike the man himself.

#Fracking America

#Fracking America

My pal Walter Brasch tells the story of 300 Americans who got fracked so that some frackers on Wall Street could try to get rich quick while cooking the planet and shipping America’s oil and gas reserves to China. This is what happens when an industry buys Washington, then buys state governments. One politician at a time. Here is what Amazon says: About the book: Fracking America, by Dr. Walter M. Brasch, is a comprehensive and well-documented look at the impacts of a controversial process to extract gas and oil from more than a mile below the earth’s surface. It is a cross-over book that meets the demanding standards of academic scholarship, while also being easily readable by the general population. Among the chapters are those that focus upon the […]

Shocking ! Frackers Understood Science Way Back in 1982 !

Oil Industry Group’s Own Report Shows Early Knowledge of Climate Impacts A report the American Petroleum Institute commissioned in 1982 revealed its knowledge of global warming, predated its campaign to sow doubt. BY NEELA BANERJEE, INSIDECLIMATE NEWS FEB 5, 2016 The oil industry knew its impact on climate change in the early ’80s, an internal report shows. A Columbia University report commissioned by the American Petroleum Institute in 1982 cautioned that global warming “can have serious consequences for man’s comfort and survival.” It is the latest indication that the oil industry learned of the possible threat it posed to the climate far earlier than previously known. The report, “Climate Models and CO2 Warming, A Selective Review and Summary,” was written by Alan Oppenheim and William L.  Donn of Columbia’s Lamont-Doherty […]

#$hillary Supports Fracking Home Rule !

That’s the good news. The bad news is she supports nothing but Home Rule ! Shillary tells reporter, “I think we should let local communities decide on fracking.” That’s it. That’s #$hillary’s plan. Fracking is a local zoning issue. Except states where it’s not. I think maybe we over-sold that fracking home rule strategy ? To coin a phrase “Be careful what you wish for . . . .” Tweeting Helen Slottje now.

Feminist Sharia Fatwa For #Shillary !

Feminist Sharia Fatwa For #Shillary !

Madeleine Albright unleashes Feminist Sharia, condemns to hell any young woman that supports Bernie v Shillary.   No, I am not making this up. Fracking Shillary’s surrogates have gone fully fracko on Bernie.   MILFORD, N.H. — Bill Clinton uncorked an extended attack on Senator Bernie Sanders on Sunday, harshly criticizing Mr. Sanders and his supporters for what he described as inaccurate and “sexist” attacks on Hillary Clinton. “When you’re making a revolution you can’t be too careful with the facts,” Mr. Clinton said, deriding Mr. Sanders’s oft-mentioned call for a political revolution. The former president, addressing a few hundred supporters at a junior high school here, portrayed his wife’s opponent for the Democratic nomination as hypocritical, “hermetically sealed” and dishonest. He even likened an incident last year, in which Sanders staffers obtained […]
