Jared Polis On Fracking Lawsuits: 'Stop Suing Our Communities'

Jared Polis On Fracking Lawsuits: 'Stop Suing Our Communities'

“Ignorance. If you cannot afford the legal battle, don't toss your hat into the ring. If the people who own the land want to sell their mineral rights, then they should have that right and the local Bureaucracy should not try to stop them from attaining wealth thru legislation. BTW - for the truly ignorant - we have been 'fracking' since 1949 and until Al Gore invented Global Warming (along with the internet), it was never a problem. Lastly, there is no scientific proof fracking is unsafe when done properly.”

“Zap, so much to debate in your post. Why deny climate change? These extreme storms and disasters are visible proof. Do you need more? Yes, there are studies proving fracking is unsafe. Just listen to the people that had their land fracked. Simple as that. And, when it's done properly? Seems like, it's never been done properly. But, start with that. If a company can save money cutting corners, in other words, doing it slightly, somewhat, quicker, faster, not quite as "properly" as they want, but save money, why would they do it properly? Are you saying, these corporations are altruistic, do things for the common good? No, they do it for the profits. Any way they can get the profits, because that's the bottom line. Let's get off fossil fuels and put that money into modern methods. And really, just think, if you're going to fracture the core of the earth, do you not think you will do harm. You do so when you injure your own body. Why can't you see the same for the earth?”

“We need to start taking Motor Vehicles away too, as irresponsible owners use them to kill innocents when mixed with alcohol. In fact, more innocents in America die each year from Drunk Driving, than by legal gun owners. Furthermore, we lose more innocent children to Abortion than any other means of intentional death known to man, each year. They arent about safety at all. It is about controlling people and restraining them from doing what they are given a Right to do. You say that Right isnt important? What about the Womens Right to Vote? What if the majority decided that was no longer a 'necessary evil' in America? Guns arent the problem... Stupidity is....”

“It can be wiped off the Planet. The use of Condoms, along with self respect and personal responsibility are all that is required. These poor children are born with this disease because their parents didnt care if they got it or not... elsewise, they would have done something to protect themselves. A totally preventable disease, easier to prevent than Cancer in a smoker. Yes, Hypocrites. You blame and shame smokers for their Cancer. Be truly equal and blame and shame those for their contracting HIV thru poor choices of personal safety. It is time to stop feeling sorry for those who contract this disease thru their own behaviours just as we have done smokers, alcoholics, and drug abusers.”

“In the sub-Sahara (and other parts of Africa) women are not cherished and brides are typically around 12 years of age (for many reasons). Some of the men go off to cities and return home carrying the virus from either sex with other men or with infected women including prostitutes or they have sex in their own villages outside of their marriage. Why do you condemn and blame mothers who have no birth control, no education, and no choice? It isn't like the women can say no to men in a rape culture or drive down to the local CVS to get condoms. This is not a blame and shame game and someone with an equality avatar should be more aware of the variables in these situations and how it feels to be unfairly judged.”

“A Law that cannot be implemented, is a Law poorly designed and will never succeed. Sometimes you just have to admit a plan failed and try again. All they really had to do was to start out with those qualifying for Medicare and leave everyone else alone. Then, open the same exchanges that offer over 500 different plans that Congress is allowed to enjoy, for the rest of America, at their own discretion. That would have worked, but that wouldnt give the Liberals Socialist Agenda control of our lives. I wonder how many Gay men are happy they must pay for birth control, maternity care, and pediatric care. No one is saying that the poor do not deserve medical care, so dont try that rhetoric. But redistribution has NEVER worked throughout history.”

“Umm... what we DO know, is that the customer has proof there was a tip, and the 'merchant copy' is a fraud. The only people saying otherwise are only doing so in support of the Gay Agenda.

“It is truly saddening when a child takes their own life, whatever the reason. That being said, I believe this mother is pursuing this more out of her own guilt than anything else. Id wager she feels guilty for not providing the support in the hoe, or for her daughter not feeling secure enough to go to her parents with the feelings and emotions that she could not cope with at her young age. If someone were to bully my 12 yo daughter or my 15 yo son on FB or whatever social media, I would just close my children's accounts for starters, instead of allowing them to continually bear that abusive ignorance. We will never know if there were other factors that caused her actions, but after (still) raising 5 children who all have been bullied in one way or another (kids are kids), I feel confident there is more to this story that we will never know.”

“Cobain is no mystery. He knew he was a flash-in-the-pan, and was on his way out, so he left while on top. Too bad too, as it would have proven he isnt the 'musical genius' some people make him out to be.”

BrooksP on Nov 24, 2013 at 22:43:41

“If he really thought he was "on his way out" he probably wouldn't have killed himself. Cobain hated the publicity and fame that he gained from his music, which is one of the motives of him committing suicide. However that doesn't take away from the fact that things didn't add up when it came to his death. Very high dosage of heroin would make it hard to function let alone be able to shoot your self with a long barrel shotgun without using your hands. Not to mention with Courtney Love continueing to try (even to this day) and get money off his music, kind of hints that she really only cared about the money. Which could have been a motive to hire someone.

Granted I liked his music back then, but never thought he was a musical genius.”
