Sometimes, I dream I hear Mother Nature calling.She's Calling collect.

She’s Calling collect.*

“Can we agree that everything has a tipping point? Aren’t natural resources limited? Should anyone take resources out of the ground willy-nilly like a  mamby-pamby who wants what they want come hell or high water? Are America’s politicians a bunch of jack-asses who don’t give a crap?”

Really? You don't give a crap?

Really? You don’t give a crap?

Then the phone goes dead, the line cut by fracking exploration nearby.

I run to my faucet to splash my face with cool water, hoping to shake that nightmare of questions out of my head, and my tap water ignites.

This is really someone's tape water.......

This is really someone’s tape water…….

Then I wake up. I want to forget the dream, move on, see what’s up on Face Book, but I can’t , not really. I know, you know, the dream I had is real; we ALL live the story line.  And there’s the puzzling part of living life with brain-dead leaders,worse, with greedy businesses that don’t seem to care an iota for Life on this planet. Don’t these folks ever go home to their loved ones and feel the ground shaking?

But, are things really that bad? Isn’t all the hullabaloo about Fracking  just an exaggeration put forth by liberals and conservationists? No, Fracking is a very real problem, one America must address.  Read this to understand why:

Nationwide, an average of 100 magnitude 3.0 or higher temblors occurred each year between 2010 and 2012. The average annual rate from 1967 to 2000 was 21, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

How many cups of coffee do we all have to spill before we all wake up!?!?!?

Here’s what David Letterman thinks about fracking;

Sometimes it feels like the roof is caving in! ( A real home located near fracking field.)

Realtors say values may go down.

Realtor says value may go down.

That’s five times as many earthquakes between 2010 and 2012 as America had in previous years! Think about eating five times as much per day as you do now? How would you look? Or drinking five times as much. How structured would your life be then?  Or smoking five times as much. How much time would you have left to live? Fracking is this serious to the life as we know it on the planet, and Mother Earth has left a calling card of earthquake history to let us know. The stability of Earth’s crust is five times worse off now, and all inroads of thought lead to fracking as being the major cause for its deterioration.**

Some states are reading the news print and in between the lines , too. Some states, some countries, are beginning to take action. Meanwhile, rich oil businesses are working as quickly as possible to reap their harvest from the Earth’s soil before they are stopped. Face it: some people, some companies, have NO regard for human life, or any life.

Better to know an ass when you see one than to end up on the losing end-

Better to know an ass when you see one than to end up on the losing end-

It came clear to me as I watched an interview on tv of some fellow who basically scammed funds from US workers and socked it away for himself in the Cook Islands. The interviewer asked, ” Does this bother you?” The fellow looked right into the camera and smiled, ” You and I have different morals.”

They don't give a damn about our land, or our lives.

They don’t give a damn about our land, or our lives.

Thing is, when a person feels strongly enough about something to consider the point a moral issue, it’s difficult to imagine anyone not being in agreement. Still, this is the reality when it comes to the legality of Fracking. Ask yourself this: how bad did BP really feel about the gulf spill when their answer to the problem was to lie to the US Government about the facts of the case? See? BP, and other oil companies, have people on board in high positions who think lying is better than telling the truth.

(n November 2012, BP and the United States Department of Justice settled federal criminal charges with BP pleading guilty to 11 counts of manslaughter, two misdemeanors, and a felony count of lying to Congress….)

How can we, the people, ever expect companies who blatantly lie to world governments to safe guard the World’s future?  That’s idiotic on our part. NO! It’s time for people to insist that governments tell these frackin’ people to go to hell.

Time to have them earn their keep.

Time to have them earn their keep.

Maybe, world polluters, and oil-rich greedy mongrels, will find that Hell is heated with oil? Wouldn’t that be rich?
