The unreported catastrophe

Another legacy of the Bushbama adminstration
It's a simple story.

Criminals take over the White House in 2000 and hand over everything not nailed down to their criminal friends in the energy industry.

One of the things they handed over in 2005 was complete immunity to gas drilling companies for damaging water wells and ground water.

The result?

PERMANENTLY destroyed fresh water sources in thousands of North American communities.

Bush & Co cheered. Obama & Co. are fine with it too.

The catastrophe on the Gulf is only the most obvious problem

DaddyWarbucks here at the DP is moving away from PA due to this exact reason. He posted a discussion about it maybe a month ago. He mentioned that he did a great deal of research, including talking to the experts (I'm not sure, but may have also commissioned research as well) into all of this. He considers it legit and serious enough to sell his property, pack up and move out west.

just watched it on hbo on

just watched it on hbo on demand...
umm..not really sure what to say....I have the city on my butt about my basement shower draining into a ditch. (It's called greywater it's perfectly safe and actually good for the environment)
And We allow, give permission to...even help facilitate the absolute poisoning of our drinking water by big corporations????
I am perturbed x 1000 to say the least.
whether they have ulterior motives or not for making this movie, it doesn't change the facts...what's true is true...They are evil dirty MF's
I may be a constitutionalist...and business and all is a good thing...but those corps are definalty infringing on my rights...they are no longer doing what they want without harm to another...

our government coddles them, owns them, profits off of them...and wants to push a carbon tax on me cause I might want to light my kitchen at night....
screw them all...

More divide and conquer.

I am not saying it is not bad but, this documentary would never have been done if it wasn't with an agenda. This is more of the same. The Bush and Obama administrations could have both produced them themselves. It would not be happening if YOU, WE, US did not put these criminals in office.

The big question is what do we do now?

"The big question is what do we do now?"

Ron Paul told me to get involved locally. I ran for a local office and it is much more than I expected. I have some influence.

Run for a local office. Even an elected spot on sanitation board of directors will increase your local influence.
Start now.

HBO? idiot

HBO? idiot

And Obama ok'd 243 more mountain tops decapited.

(I think he wants to put his castle there; good landing pad space for tinkerbell)

And never forget, “Humans, despite our artistic pretensions, our sophistication and many accomplishments, owe the fact of our existence to a six-inch layer of topsoil and the fact that it rains.”

Wow

Where can you watch the whole documentary?

HBO - all month - it is called "Gasland" - it will sicken you!

These bastards will be hung in public at some point and they know it! That's why they are taking our rights away so quickly and so blatantly! They are being found out and are scared for their lives...and for good reason! They are murderers of millions through their wars and abuse of power and resources...all for the all mighty buck! They continue to jeaporize all of our lives without an ounce of conscience or concern for anyone else but themselves and their own! And, we just continue to stand for it! When will we stop their insanity and hold them accountable for their crimes against humanity? It'd better be soon or we've had it!

Bump. Sigh; anyone else feeling

overloaded with crises?

It is a fundemental result of federal control.

If governments on the township, city, county and state level could exercise any control over local activities. Using property rights suits or class action suits many of these issues would be handled on a local level.

But the federal government has usurped or nullified those legal avenues.

One wonders if Erin Brockovich would be successful today.

[Since she targeted a natural gas company and not an oil company did that play a factor in her success.]

How do we leave those that follow with a system that handles human created disaster as a matter of course?

Natural disaster are a part of the human condition.

What good are any of the energy sources if we have no clean, safe water sources? Must not be enough money in water. I guess there will be when it becomes rare. In the mean time big pharma and big medicine will make big bucks on all the people getting sick. The funeral business should be booming too. How do we stop these fools? Is it too late? Look how much we know. Think of how much we probably don't know.
I hate to be gloom and doom, but...... What is the future of my kids and grandkids going to be?

big pharma another favorite of mine....

big pharma is tied to the chemical industry...after all, what are their products: chemical substances and compounds....

so the chems dose us, and the meds treat us....

of course most of the meds themselves are "toxic" substances....just check out SARA and notice how many meds are on the list....

ain't that just a grand scheme.......

so if WE do not buy or use THEIR products....hmmm what would happen?

if we educate ourselves and live without them...how do they hold onto the power when they do not have our money?

after all, much less expensive to clean the house with vinegar and lemon, or to do laundry with Dr. Bonners or some other plain castille soap...and to not buy their personal care products (motto: never put anything on your skin/hair you would not eat...skin delivers more chemical load to most bodies than any other method)...

and if we bought fewer consumer goods ( approx 70% of everything non-food we buy, has a petro-chem base)....

would we again, not only have more money in our pockets, but NOT empowering them?

just another direction/set of steps to take with regard to reclaiming our republic and restoring the Constitution

cee cee

This brings all the pieces together...

This is why the government is after all rights to every water source in the U.S., they want to control it. Then the cost of a gallon of "clean" water can be higher than a barrel of oil, what a revenue source. Follow the money and you can find the motive.

Always remember:
"It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds." ~ Samuel Adams
If they hate us for our freedom, they must LOVE us now....

Stay IRATE, remain TIRELESS, an

Exactly...

They will take them and then will claim that they need to sell them off because they are costing too much. They'll pretend as Bush did with utilities that it is a free market solution, but the monopolies will get them and raise the rates through the roof. Obama will finish off what Bush started.

"Industry experts largely blame wholesale power markets dominated by a handful of large suppliers. In some cases, these giants have been accused of manipulating prices in ways that echo complaints during the 2000 California energy crisis."
http://www.usatoday.com/money/industries/energy/2007-08-09-p...

We should not forget that the energy companies are the ones investing in carbon credits and will profit from cap and trade. Imagine what they'll do if they get our water? They will control our every move. Our rates will increase dramatically and they'll be putting 2 minute timers on our showers. They don't care about the environment, it is about control and taking our $$.

History repeats itself...depression era laws were enacted to protect citizens against the issues we are currently facing but legislators remove them and cause crisis. Clinton removed Glass Stegall and the banks blew up, Bush removed the Public Utilities Holding Company Act and our utilties went up, water will be next.

They know what they are doing and they are doing it on purpose.

Look up Water Privitization, Goldman Sachs, World Bank

Monopolies like Goldman Sachs are already trying to take over the water systems and it will have horrible effects just like the deregulation of electricity did.

It isn't a free market when our resources are handed over to these monopolies. Bush's energy deregulation did not bring us competition and lower prices, it is about control and making citizens poorer. I believe Enron wrote Bush's energy policy. Look at your utility company, most have someone from Goldman Sachs sitting on the board or running them.

They are buying up all the resources, farm land, utilities, and they are after water and roadways too in an effort to have control. Grain has some good articles on Goldman Sachs and George Soros buying up farmland.

Senate Bill S787 is entitled, "To amend the Federal Water Pollution Control Act to clarify the jurisdiction of the United States over waters of the United States"...

The fact is, this legislation will put ALL surface waters in the United States of America under Congressional jurisdiction.
