Since I know who paid for this "needed item", my question is how much did it cost me?

Well, for people sitting on a huge fault line, with a gas storage underground, do tell what they will come up with next. """Who was the fortune teller who foretold of the USA being split, and the great Lakes flowing to the ocean via Mississippi""" I I'm beginning to believe he was onto and not on something...

We need Fracking in Washington County. Memphis, Tennessee is holding their breath for that. And all this progress comes on the coattails of getting enough bleach in the toilet water to make it drinkable. Call back Olin Chemicals, we're not out of poisons yet.
The third world countries have been subjected to the consequences to the health benefits of poisoned water.
Do these people actually plan to take their children and grandchildren out of this country. Greed has always been a motivator for our leaders, what they want now is equal opportunity gain, but fact is their children's children will also be affected the same as our children's children.
When i was a child seventy years ago, there were springs flowing every where, has any of these greedy people taken a look at "NOW". Do we really need to poison what few water sources we have.

Sandra must be crazy. If things don't go your way then they always make an excuse up. The fact is the state controls gas drilling in Virginia. The law says only county officials can say what zones they can drill in. Complain to the state they make laws not localities. We still have the right to sell our mineral rights even if you don't like it. My land I can do what I please and I don't care if you don't see any more flowers on my land. Yes my land not yours. I say drill baby drill. Don't want no more oil from the Muslims.
