    The organizations represented by those speakers suggest “Boulder” or “Yugoslavia” to those who demonstrate their frustration at being prevented from adding their bile to these threads. These folks might wish to check out recent employment performance in Boulder or Ft. Collins (fracking there largely a who-dat concept), versus Greeley (LOUSY job growth last year) or Grand Junction, also an oil and gas haven. You can drill, baby, drill, but nobody else will want to live nearby or have their children attend school there. Then what you gonna do for retail sales, etc.?

    There’s a person who lives in Frederick (go count the jackleg pumps) who wrote to the Times-Call today. It’s a rather safe bet he works for or benefits financially from, the natural resource industry, or else IS one of the 1%. Go read his stuff.

    Mr. Graham, I can guess you are watching. How you have the time is a puzzle, though, because I’m sure you have been very busy inventing the cracker. Get out beside that gas compressor and breathe deeply!

    A very cursory Google search reveals Mr. Graham’s connection to the Times-Call (was VP of IT for MediaNews Group) as well as Phillip Anschutz. Of course the TC carefully omitted that information. Bra-vo. ARF ARF.

    PS – apparently Googling someone is now stalking. *cough* Longmont’s worst haters keep trying (and failing) to deflect the truth. Truth keeps scraping them off the windshield like the mosquitos they are.

    Mr. Anschutz qualifies as a one-percenter. BUT, I know beyond doubt that Fr. Woody’s (Roman Catholic Monsignor Charles Woodrich) ten-dollar bills, which were handed out to the homeless weekly at the Church of the Holy Ghost in Denver back in the early 1990s, came from Anschutz personally. He’d supply a wad of them, and demanded total secrecy about it. So there is fairness and balance in reportage. Is this a hint to the forces of the “dark side” to try the same? Does dog poop stink?

    I have no idea who these people you’re speaking of are. But I DO know a jackleg pump when I see one, and I wonder if “jackleg” wasn’t some kind of play on an acronym. Try “JAAC” – Leg, for Jobs at Any Cost.

    We’ve got ’em right where they want us.

    The federal government gave the fracking industry exemptions to environmental regulations in the 2005 Energy Policy Act.

    The scary thing about the well injections is that they’re operating under energy industry models that assumes that the toxic fluids won’t rise up to the water table for 100 years. We may find out in the next ten years that those assumptions are overly optimistic.
