why do you repeat yourself. Now I have to repeat myself again like I'm your dad. REPUBLICANS ARE FOR FRACKING anyway so what good would it do? Hmmmmm? You are acting like you're against fracking, no? Can you count past 100? 200? 300? Count the yea democrat votes on the 2005 energy policy act. Then tell me if it would've passed without the votes fom your favorite party. Aren't you ashamed of voting in a guy for potus who voted yea on that bill? Or are you that ignorant that you just assume that democrats are the enviromentalist party. Why, because your mom told you? Look at their votes.

I don't think fracking is drawn on party lines anymore. I think the line is just getting longer of those politicians who have their hand out for a payoff for their vote. The EPA is big on the act of making stuff look safe. Drinking water pollution comes in a lot of flavors, including fracking. There is now a dumping/garbage lobby that is very quiet yet alive. Notice the detect level in water tests now. Many chemicals can harm or kill at 0.001 mgpl yet the new test results won't show until it reaches 2.5mgpl. Gee, now all water is clean and safe to drink unless you see a golfball size lump of poison in it. And don't forget the other slight of hand, compound not found in test water, because they didn't test for it!!

Both parties may now be involved...but, Bush/Cheney are the ones that opened up Bureau of Land Management, taxpayer owned natural habitat...to Big Oil and the fracking that poisons ground waters for miles around.....

what a great way to recycle something that is supposedly destroying the planet! If it works, watch for the oil/gas lobby to fight tooth and nail to repress it.

I agree. The FDA also just pretends drugs and gmo are safe too. Only to pull them off the shelves when people die from them.

.......I watched a water test go from 15 years of twice the action level of lead,(which the state blamed on a bronze faucet), to non-detect. I also have seen 1/2 million $$ attempted to be given for tests to specifically claim that certain carcinogens were not present in drinking water and only certain ones were by testing for only what they wanted to find. The purpose was to provide evidence of one parties guilt, and clear another, the city. It appears there are no more tests, just results for the lawyers.

<quoted text>as I have already proven by posting the vote to authorize fracking in PA, democrats are clearly better than repubs on environmental issues. The fact that you are too cowardly to acknowledge that is irrellevant .
In pa, fracking was authorized because they had a repub legislature and governor
IN MY HOME STATE...DEMOCRAT CONTROLLED....FRACKING IS BANNED. THANKS FOR MAKING MY POINT FOR ME IDIOT
you are the pussy. You are the person who started whining about democrats, when they are your only hope of stopping fracking. Your cowardice is pathetic

I know what fracking is and would give my life to stop one from being built by me. Would fight it in the courts and if lost there I would do what it took to stop it or die trying.

Know there is a lobby now for garbage and dumping. They are already getting water tests to look safe by having detect levels changed, raised.

and you voted for a guy who voted for the haliburton loophole! Haha! You plan to nominate a woman as your next candidate for potus who also voted for it. So if its still an issue, why not worry a little, no a fu*k of a lot more about what the powers that be are doing? I understand the whole Bush was bad thing, the problem is many people posting here DIDN'T VOTE FOR BUSH and realize that unless you have a petition to get him arrested, IT DOESN'T MATTER ANYMORE BECAUSE HE'S NOT PRESIDENT!!!! Maybe get a little pissed at Obama for appointing many of the same lackies that Bush did to cabinet. Or just keep rattling off about Bush but provide this link when you do and don't give democrats a pass on important issues if you don't want look like a shoe licker. http://www.petitiononline.com/arrest/petition...
