Great news. I commend our Commissioners for their work. Fracking is here to stay. If it further hurries the change over from coal, all the better. But we have to keep tight regulations on the drilling and maintaining of the wells. Too many wells are too close to developments, streams and also in water starved areas. People need to be informed of what fracking a well totally involves, i.e. noise, truck trips, odors, methane leaks, etc. That check from the oil company looks good at first, but if you lose your water through contamination, the check is not worth much. Coal v. natural gas is a easy one. But at the same time, alternative energies need to be promoted. There will come a time when fossil fuels will be the death of us if we don't pursue other methods.
To all the commenters: forget the climate topic, forget Ben and the boys, forget racism and forget misspelling. My point was to read Karl's Letter to the Today on 10/25/13 under the title I gave. Then compare it to his letter above. That's all I'm asking.
Oh by the way, Mark, I may be an idiot but: I live in a strawbale home heated by firewood, my driveway is not paved, and my food is not "fertaliized".
Dan, in answer to your first question, absolutely. It's not political.
As far as Keystone, it's not the pipeline, it's the bitumen crap that it will carry. It's the horrific damage being done by TransCanada to the land and wildlife and the fact that the US will get nothing but a few temp jobs and all the risk environmentally, no oil.
We've got to get the money out of government so we the people and not Corporations Are People run the country. And that includes Obama.
In mentioning George, Ben and Tom, I'm referring to whether they would be creationists or evolutionists with 21st century knowledge. I'm sure they would still believe in God.
Interesting comments on Boxer's and other Dem's reactions to those who don't believe as they. You might find this interesting, also. Log in to: Karl Koehler: Do Your Homework from 10/25/13 in the Today.
The deist views of George, Ben and Tom are from 18th century. Wonder how they would feel if they were 21st century.
Dave, she may be "out of touch with the majority' on Amend 66. That is all you can conclude and not with all issues. Again, she won the election. Let's say you voted for W in 2000. With less votes than Gore, he must have been out of touch also. Imagine that.
I agree, Jeff. It seems that most far right groups feel that your title of the group has to include Freedom, Liberty, Constitution, America or Patriot. Does that make it better for the country? And Mr. Moloney's comment about DMB representing special interests instead of her constituency is odd because of the fact that she won her election, which was voted on by constituents, apparently mostly for her. Rove is the champion of taking the GOP's weaknesses and attempting to turn them into strengths by just saying so. Koch bros are interested in only one thing and that is enlarging their fortunes. When the far right follows the mantras of a Beck, a Limbaugh, a Cruz, a Santorum, a West and the list goes on and on, one must sit back and evaluate the actual common sense in their collective brain. And we have a smaller government than we've had in many years. Check how many months the monthly jobs report has included fewer government employees. The GOP has tried to rebrand itself since losing in '12 but somehow are still alienating the same groups as always. "You can't make a silk purse...."
I'm hoping for a great Olympics. Not just in American results, but an international gathering. Watching the Opening Ceremonies, I was impressed at what they put together. A glitch or two that I didn't even notice. The venues seem to be very nice. I understand there are problems with some of the lodgings. But the Russian folks seem to be friendly and want to make it a good experience. We don't need any negativity from our media. We should sit back, root for our kids, and enjoy the next 16 days. I'll root for the Russian citizens, too. After all, they have Putin and that's a heavy load to bear.
Ben, I agree that it is not a good thing to drink. It is a symbol of America. My point is that the ad is a good one up to the point of the product.
