    i most certainly can when the argument is whether fracking is safe or not,especially when you were arguing it was perfectly safe to frack in city limits.

    What about jurisdictional authority? Are you in favor of any government entity claiming jurisdictional authority, at will?

    Again, I never claimed ANYTHING is perfectly safe.

    Second, are you going to show us evidence of anything other than methane contamination of water wells? I asked for that already and you're working your ass off to dodge the request.

    So you're going to appeal to law-and-order now to overrule Denton's right to govern itself. Because this decision didn't go your way.

    Since when does Denton have the right to govern private property?

    Of course it's a serious question; especially since you erroneously believe that any government entity has the right to do anything. Show us what rights the government has. Let me help you out: government doesn't have the RIGHT to do a goddamn thing. Now that we have that cleared up, show us what AUTHORITY The City of Denton has to restrict the exploitation of mineral RIGHTS. Can't wait to see your evidence.

    Awesome! Then we are in agreement that "states rights" are a crock of ****!

    Wow, we were on the same page all along!

    Since it was founded. Cities, states and the federal govt have always had some control over what can and cant be done on private property especially in cases where the effects can spill over to others. Not to mention unless you are doing the fracking on your own property it is a commercial venture and that definitely falls in the realm of govt authority
