In prime time. Good for the man from Texas. On behalf of his father, his wife, the Texas delegation, the grand legacy of Lincoln, the Bush family, and all right-thinking Republicans he did the honorable thing. He completely ignored the bloated, SprayNetted con man that the Republicans have picked as their standard bearer. Cruz is universally despised in DC as being a complete maverick. Not a good attribute for a herd animal. He is beloved by Texans for the same reason. This was classic Cruz. … [Read more...] about Cruz Bushwhacks Trump at Trumpfest !

Please come to your senses! Dear Governor Cuomo, As currently used by FERC, Eminent Domain is theft of private land by big corporations. In case you didn't see it, here's Bob Lidsky's letter to the editor in the Schoharie News: I am a landowner in Davenport, NY, who is about to have my property and life ripped apart by the Constitution Pipeline. I am a typical working class American, who is fortunate to own my land. I see myself as a steward and believe the care … [Read more...] about Dear Governor Cuomo…
Austin, February 17 Saying that "Israelis are no longer safe in Israel," former Governor Rick Perry has invited them to come to Texas. "Texas may not be the historic homeland for Israelis, but parts of Texas looks a lot like Israel without the mosques and pyramids and camels and such and it's really really safe because of the Texas Rangers," the plucky ex-governor told a news conference today in Austin. "Plus Texas has a long history of prominent Israelis, such as Neiman Marcus and … [Read more...] about Rick Perry Invites Israelis to Come to Texas
This from a savvy landowner who has figured out that it may be better to fight a pipeline by forcing the company to try to take the land in an eminent domain proceedings - ie. condemnation - which ostensibly would force a fair valuation of the property - substantially more than what the pipeline developers are now offering. Believe it or not, forcing a condemnation actually can be the best option - preferable to an outright sale. For openers, you are liable to get up to 100% more out of … [Read more...] about COME AND TAKE IT – Why Forcing a Condemnation Is The Best Option
This warms my heart - the good people of Nebraska telling a bunch of fracking Cannucks to come and try to take their property - if they can. The Cornhuskers know that the threat of condemnation is hollow. That they'd just get more money if the Cannucks tried to condemn them. So the Cannucks keep raising their "final offers". But the Cornhuskers won't sell out. God bless the Cornhuskers.

If the Democrats can unite behind a progressive message & platform, they will beat the Republicans in the 2018 mid-term elections and take control of Congress, because the GOP has never had the best interests of the American people first and foremost, and sooner-or-later people will come out of their comatose or zombie-like states and realize they have been betrayed by the people they KEEP ELECTING to represent them...but if the Wall Street Wing of the Party continues to prevail, all bets … [Read more...] about Seize The Opportunity Or Get Out!

Rule Number 1 - if some fracker tries to buy your land for a pipeline right of way (ROW) and threatens you with an eminent domain condemnation, tell them: "Come and take it." Force them to have to condemn it. Have blogged about this before and the word has gotten out : You're better off forcing a condemnation than selling or leasing an easement. Make the frackers have to take it away from you. Don't sell out cheap, if at all. This is a 2012 University of Texas study that shows that, on … [Read more...] about Pipeline Rule Number 1: COME AND FRACKING TRY TO TAKE IT
As the petrodollar debt bubble continues to implode. Dragging domestic and foreign frackers down. Quantitative Easing (QE), the Fed's free money policy, facilitated the production of shale oil and gas where the production decision was no longer being tied to profitability. For instance, shale producers could borrow cheaply, produce at a loss and debt investors would simply look the other way because of the attractive yields that were offered on the debt. The overriding theme of these pieces … [Read more...] about There Will Be (More) Fracking Blood to Come
