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.

    Good win !!!!

    ALEC is a particularly bad organizations because it is extremely well funded by a small group of people pushing their business interests over the public good and they favor measures and tactics that deceive and undermine democratic (representaional) policy making.

    They said that they were going to only use the tower for radio communications. I figure they would put an antenna on top, use it for radio communications for a couple of weeks, then think to themselves, "Hey, we could frack from that tower, now that I think about it!" LOL

    I was not fooled for a moment. My neighbors had a block party to fight a proposed sewage treatment center that they heard about in a rumor. They were incorrect. I was on a bike run that day and couldn't attend the party, but I saw their signs at the main entrance to our kingdom.

    Hell, I've told you too much now and you're just going to be confused. Let's keep this simple:

    The citizens of Denton, Texas voted to ban hydraulic fracturing within the city limits.

    You watch out for your city and we'll watch out for ours.

    I knew I told you too much to process.

    They wanted to build a fracking tower under the guise of it being a radio comm tower.

    At this point I'm wondering if you inow what frac'ing is, much less how it's accomplished, which begs the larger question: how can you possibly know it's bad? Some tree-hugger blog told you it is?

    This is what a frac job looks like. Note the absence of anything remotely resembling a communications tower.

    I don't think you should frack in a bar either.
