FRACKING UNDERGROUND - DAS ENDE


Renegade announced yesterday that he is leaving our corner of the blogosphere to go fracking underground.

I'm sure I'll see him there further on down this road.

I have felt a kinship with him and I'll miss his rebel spirit.

I wish him success.

Here's to you, Renegade:

GO BACK TO SLEEP


Don´t fret precious I´m here,
step away from the window

Go back to sleep

Safe from pain and truth and choice
and other poison devils,

See, they don´t give a fuck about you, like I do

Count the bodies like sheep
Count the bodies like sheep

I'll be the one to protect you
from your enemies and all your demons

I´ll be the one to protect you
from a will to survive and a voice of reason

I´ll be the one to protect you
from your enemies and your choices son

They´re one in the same, I must isolate you...

Isolate and save you from yourself

COUNTING BODIES LIKE SHEEP

Perfect Circle

Count the bodies like...

OR?

WAKE THE FRACK UP

HARD TIMES

Song by Peter Gabriel

"The jobs are there. But if we keep extending unemployment, people are just going to sit there, I've literally had construction companies tell me, 'I can't get people to come back to work until . . . they say, "I'll come back to work when unemployment runs out."

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC on FRACKING WITH PENN'S WOODS

Extensive Reporting by National Geographic

"It’s ruined our lives." 

"It’s ruined our plans that we had for the kids."

"It’s ruined what we thought was
our perfect ten acres."

A Changed Environment

University of Pittsburgh environmental researcher Conrad Dan Volz, whose center, along with the University of Washington, Seattle, is researching the Hallowiches’ case as part of a larger study on the industry impact, believes the Marcellus air pollution risk is largely being overlooked. Air pollution is one of Volz’s areas of focus in a $1.8 million, three-year project funded by the Heinz Endowments, which includes the launch of a web site called FracTracker, to be used by citizens, community groups, government agencies, and public health officials. Information, he says, has been as dispersed as the industry. “If any new industry moved into an area and essentially wanted to build a factory, they would have to submit all these environmental plans,” he says. “This industry, because it’s more diffuse over such a large geographic area, has avoided getting that kind of scrutiny. The [federal] Clean Air Act is very much devised to regulate the largest industrial processors, not necessarily an industrial process spread through an entire region.”

FRACKED vs FRACKER

Welcome to The Fracking Zone
video

Here is as penetrating a discussion as I have found.


"The tools of conquest do not necessarily come with bombs, and explosions, and fallout. There are weapons that are simply thoughts, ideas, prejudices, to be found only in the minds of men. For the record, predjudices can kill and suspicion can destroy. A thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has a fallout all it's own for the children yet unborn. And the pity of it is, is that these things can not be confined to the Twilight Zone."

"PUBLIC COMMENT" - ATTENTION PLEASE


AN OUTSTANDING NEW BLOG

Dissenta's blog has only just come to my attention.
It is simply awesome - I love it.

"ALL HANDS:"
"Welcome aboard Public Comment. This is a humble web journal begun in late summer 2010 as a place to park essays, posts, photos and videos on issues of the day and especially public comments such as to the EPA and other forums."
 
"INAUGURAL ESSAY"
"Fracturing the Talking Points
"Welcome to Public Comment, a site that champions the public interest as opposed to private/corporate interests. We need both, but these days they're out of balance.
"Our first post addresses the PR surrounding the headlong push to develop shale gas like there's no tomorrow, contrary to stewardship of the "public estate" described in the PA Constitution, Section 27, known as the Environmental Rights Amendment (see right column in green text), which speaks of the physical environment of the state of Pennsylvania, "Penn's Woods," as an asset belonging to the public. There is private property, to be sure, but there is also a shared moral responsibility to preserve all the public estate of Pennsylvania for current and future generations, to be stewards -- caretaking servants -- of the land, public and private. The commons."

Besides having a great name, Dissenta explores important perspectives too often ignored.
His blog is special and will be of great value.
Please check it out.

IMAGINE THERE'S NO FRACKING


John Lennon
9 October 1940 - 8 December 1980

“Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives. I think we're being run by maniacs for maniacal ends and I think I'm liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That's what's insane about it.”

Gimme Some Truth
video

Ah, I'm sick and tired of hearing things
From uptight, shortsighted, narrow-minded hypocrites
All I want is the truth
Just gimme some truth

Instant Karma
video

Instant Karma's gonna get you
Gonna knock you right on the head
You better get yourself together
Pretty soon you're gonna be dead
What in the world you thinking of
Laughing in the face of love
What on earth you tryin' to do
It's up to you, yeah you

Imagine
video

Imagine no possessions I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger a brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing for the world
You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one



He would have detested fracking

COME TOGETHER

"Frackin Assholes" by Mrs Pain


 Brand New on YouTube


"This is a song about the fine state of Pennsylvania. I am quite fond of Pennsylvania. I have lived here all my life. Sometimes when I hear news about the gas drilling and water pollution on the radio, I cry. Dear Pennsylvania, I love you. You are beautiful all over. I hope everything works out okay for you in the end. This song is for you."

FRACKIN' ASSHOLES
by Mrs.Pain

Why did we think that it was a good plan
to shoot up our land with a needle full of heroine...
Why don't we drink that dirty well water
to wash down the money in our mouths...
Think of your sons, man, think of your daughters,
Think of your mothers man, think about your grandfathers,
Think about the other men, you won't get a chance again when
food mass and crude gas and rude greed
have ruined you...

What's with all these fracking assholes?
What's with all these noisy trucks?
Why is it we let them kill us,
just to make a couple bucks?
What's with all this nasty fracture,
dirtying our water flow,?
Why is it we keep forgetting
we've got no place else to go?

Why did we think that it was a good practice
to fracture our farms and frack without facts in
while sounding alarms for poisonous gases
beneath our green farms to poison the masses,
Think of your sons man, think of your daughters,
think of your grandchildren drinking well water...
Think about me man, think about you,
think for a minute about what you should do,
before you do it...before you drill us all to hell
and poison well, and now you have ruined it...

What's with all these fracking assholes?
What's with all these noisy trucks?
What's with all these big explosions,
devils dressed in tie and tux,
What's with all these floating fishies,
croaking swans and dying ducks,
Why is it we let them kill us,
just to make a couple bucks...

We have no time left for play now,
No time left to try our luck...
While the reaper buzzes busy,
from our green hills nectar sucks,
bringing only nasty fracture,
and a trail of dirty dough,
Why is it we keep forgetting
we've got no place else to go?

ABSOLUTELY

MARK RUFFALO on THE RACHEL MADDOW SHOW on FRACKING



"If there are no problems with fracking,
then why are there
so many problems with fracking?"

Rachel's interview with Mark Ruffalo


Mark: "The Delaware River Basin Commision, which has been charged with keeping the delaware river watershed safe, is on the fast track to begin drilling asap. They want to put 30 thousand wells in there."
Rachel: "You hollering about that may stop them from doing that, I'm getting the sense."
Mark: "AHHH - don't make me mad - you wouldn't like me when I'm mad."

Mark, please get mad.
Rachel, please get mad
Everyone, please get mad.
Then get busy

Let's all let Rachel know
we need more fracking coverage

MARK RUFFALO ON RACHEL MADDOW SHOW TONIGHT


From the CITIZEN POWER ALLIANCE

Actor Mark Ruffalo on the Rachel Maddow show on MSNBC Monday October 4th at 9PM - Hydrofracking

Actor Mark Ruffalo, Upstate neighbor and friend will be on the Rachel Maddow show on MSNBC Monday October 4th at 9PM. Mark has been our voice, getting out the critical message about the dangers of Hydrofracking for Natural Gas and it's threat to our precious farmland, and the threat it can pose to the drinking water of 15 million people, who depend on the Watershed for their supply.
Mark will bring to light the plight of our Family farms and how this correlates to the Gas drilling nightmare that threatens us all.
Please pass this on to all your friends and family. The Gas industry with their $$$$ and their hold on many of our legislators has kept their practice of poisoning water supplies under the radar for a long time.

Link - HERE

As far as I know her show has not yet covered fracking in the Marcellus.
This has puzzled me - the show is from NYC.
She probably lives in the NYC area.
Here's hoping the segment is long and well done.
Here's hoping she begins to cover this frequently.
Here's hoping she goes on a MISSION to BAN FRACKING.
Oh, Yeah.

PLEASE WATCH
LET HER KNOW YOU WANT MORE
MUCH MORE

THE MARCELLUS SHALE COALITION - MORE FRACKING PROPAGANDA

LOATHSOME

Here's the latest in profane propaganda
from the Marcellus Shale Coalition

I have no image or adjective that comes close
to expressing the contempt and disgust I hold
for these utterly depraved people and their industry.

A perfect example of
"post-modern, focus-group, fecal marketing."



(NOTE: It seems the coalition has withdrawn permission for me to embed their video. Just click your cursor on the youtube logo in the lower right corner and watch on youtube - if you can stand it)

I believe these individuals and their organizations
meet all the diagnostic criteria to be accurately labeled

SOCIOPATHIC

Otherwise they could not sleep at night.
OUR State is being harmed.
OUR people are being harmed.
OUR CHILDREN ARE BEING HARMED
They all know - They just don't care.

Heart-Felt Truth from Bill Hicks

They and their work are
 literally & figuratively

VILE

TIME TO WAKE UP
TO THE DECEPTION

WOKE UP DREAMING


Devil's risin',
You don't have a chance.
Devil's risin',
You don't have a chance.
Where there's fiddles playin',
Shake your bones and dance.
