TOM RIDGE - A BIG FRACK'N SHILL

$75,000 PER MONTH
Shale gas industry adds Tom Ridge to its lobbying stable.
$75,000 PER MONTH
The Marcellus Shale Coalition, which includes most of the natural gas drilling companies in the state, announced Friday that Mr. Ridge will become a "strategic adviser" working for their interests.
$75,000 PER MONTH
His duties and compensation weren't given, but Kathryn Klaber, coalition president, said the ex-governor will stress "our industry's commitment to environmental and work-force safety [and] the positive and overwhelming economic benefits that responsible shale gas development continues to generate across the region."
$75,000 PER MONTH
Mr. Ridge...said the thousands of deep underground wells being drilled in areas of Marcellus Shale will produce much energy and many jobs, bringing "environmental and economic benefit" and "forever strengthening our homeland security."
$75,000 PER MONTH

(My view? Very frac'n slimy - merely requires no character)

From Jim Quinn:
INFLUENCE PEDDLING - SCREW YOU
"The great former governor of PA and former head of the Dept of Homeland Jackboots (Security) Tom (Code Orange) Ridge has got a new job. He will now sell his services to the natural gas companies that are polluting drinking water throughout the Marcellus Shale region of PA. His job will be to convince people in Washington DC that drinking water is suppposed to catch on fire. His job will be to convince you that the documentary GASLAND is propaganda. He will make millions using his connections in Washington DC to screw the little guy. Who is using their influence to fight for the family in northern PA that can’t drink their water for fear of a slow agonizing death? Just to show that this isn’t just for Republicans, 3 top officials from Fast Eddie Rendell’s administration have been hired by the natural gas companies too. I bet Fast Eddie is counting the days until he can cash in on his influence. What a great political system we have. If you want the truth about these corrupt politicians and corporations read this:"

  1. That article by JimQ is the best I have read.

    Should be required reading for every American.

    If revolution should come..... it is l-o-n-g overdue.
    What I have observed living among my fellow Americans, a common behavior is to do nothing about social problems until it directly affects their OWN pocketbooks..... and then they begin to agitate.
    Health issues, . . . sometimes. Unfairness . . . well no, not really.

    If it could be shown that fracking is going to drive up the cost of water across the State, we'd have a crowd with pitchforks in Harrisburg tomorrow....

    ....And eventually it will, and by then it will be too late.

    Moratorium NOW.

    Otherwise they don't seem to give a shit.
