“!!!. Fracking would also be a great way to dispose of other toxic chemicals that are byproducts of other industries. Just like depleated uranium ends up in military applications, fracking chemicals could, thanks to Cheney's Halliburton loophole, be comprised of chemicals that would have been expensive to properly dispose of. I expect that the toxic waste disposal industry is contractor to contractor to contractor, no accountability in those chains.”
parts per million, already been determined as appropriate scientific measurement.
Don't worry about the problem of how will we know when we've solved the problem, as we have too many saying there is no problem. That's the problem. And...it is cheaper to use renewable energy despite the naysayers. No energy imports, no ocean spills, no wars in Afganistan for pipelines, no war in Iraq for oil. No mercury or benzene in air and water..do I have to go on?”
“www.onewisconsinnow.org. Back in Sept, the Wisconsin Tea Party and Americans for Prosperity were conspiring to supress the votes. I live in Mn, but sent $ to his campaign. He really has been a statesman.”
“Not such a solid majority. Ben Nelson, Blanche Lincoln just a couple come to mind. Loss of Kennedy and that other old senator. If the media did a better job of explaining things, and wouldn't twist things, wouldn't let lies take hold, (death panels for grandma) We'd have a populace that would push our representatives in the correct legislation.”
“The rich are costly to society and take more than their fair share of the commons. They use more natural resources, pollute more with their air travel and giant SUV's, take more US dollars out of the country by expensive vacations, corrupt our democracy, over charge on gov contracts, twist their politicians for corporate welfare programs, influence legislation for their benefit, and ultimately steal from low and middleclass pockets. They influence tax laws so that those that make $ from moving money and betting pay less % of taxes than a secretary. (Warren Buffet admits that this is unfair) They benefit from tax loopholes and shelters set up by private accountants and lawyers. They directly fight against policy that would benefit the rest of us: Koch brothers against clean renewable energy. Just one example. Dems want to give everyone opportunity to be educated and have a good job. There are rightwing Dems like Ben Nelson who is more like a republican.”
“Sorry, but you don't understand that the top earners pay more than the poor and the middle class...because they make more than the poor and middle class combined! It's just the right wing media telling you a half truth, and most people's failure to fact check and understand the real facts.”
