    I saw that in previous cases. They decline to admit that their crap chemicals are coming up in water supplies then a study is done on the water contamination and they find all sorts of chemicals in the water. They then ask the company if this is the chemicals they use and the refuse to answer citing that proprietary claim... then of course full circle.... deny that they are poisoning the water.

    Yep! about 250 miles, and even further politically.

    That sucks. When you're young and idealistic it's kind of pure stage to be in mentally. It's harsh when it gets served in your face in a bad way like that.

    What do you mean to foundations? Water and air?

Coincidentally, that is the same height as a fracking drill tower. They even said that it would not have guide wires. That led me to believe that it was going to be planted quite deep into the ground. My house would have been within 500 feet of the tower.



    You lose some and you win some.
    While I don't believe fracking is the big boogie man that many claim, I have to give you props and congrats on taking your civic rights and duties seriously and speaking out in the public, political forum and being successful. I always respect and honour those who go about things the right way - it's what makes democracy so great. Well done.

    ALEC is working hard to pass state laws that would overturn and prohibit local governments from passing laws regarding the environment and labor issues. Beware!

    ALEC is the worst political abomination we have. It is disgusting on a monumental level.
