    The land and the water hasn't been destroyed anywhere else. Why is it going to happen here?

    My God! They were spawned from the depths of hell!....
    So you go to ALECs website... lo and behold ALEC says that ALEC is just wonderful and this is what you bring to the table?

    About that "pure" stage, I think that part of growing up is losing some of that naiveté, that taking as gospel what the grownups say. When you're faced with facts, it's a character-builder to stand up to the "popular" view. But in these two young men's case, it surely was a 180-degree eye-opener.
    Absolutely it's a great thing. But its still hard not to empathize with those going through that.

    They'll still get the oil. Denton is not large and they can drill horizontally. All Denton did is prevent their citizens from getting paid for the minerals under their property.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    So, are you against all groups that form associations of like minded legislators? Or just those that don't line up with your ideology? I think the answer is clear, but none the less, would like to hear you say it.

    There are many folks who disagree with you, folks who actually live near fracking sites. They've made documentaries about it, but you must have missed them.

    Water out of the tap that can be ignited is what I call "pretty ****ty water". My son lives in Garfield County CO where there is much fracking, and the tap water is extremely poor, probably not really potable, as the Army used to call it. Washing clothes in the local water will forever stain them and leave a strange odor.

    In Montana, a retired hydrologist has brought suit for the damage done to his small ranch from fracking nearby. A hydrologist.

    Your claim sounds quite detached from the reality many people report.

    Most of those reports have been debunked and they were written by people with an agenda.

    LOL. Debunked.

    Yeah, people with an agenda to (hopefully) get back to having potable water in their house.

    Debunked....
