If you're in the neighborhood please join us!

This one well (please read the article referenced in the flier) has FINALLY gotten the attention of many people who had been insisting that fracking is perfectly safe.

What would you say?

Okay, this was just posted to my facebook wall by someone I'm trying to bring 'into the light', so to speak. I've already responded, but I'm curious how others would answer this. My own response was worded to keep in mind that others will see the post. Given that same consideration, how would you respond?

Colorado regulators halt drilling at old landfill


May, 1 2012
By T.M. Fasano and Jason Shueh

WINDSOR Colorado regulators have ordered an energy company to stop drilling an oil well in a closed landfill in Windsor after the site was deemed a risk to the public due to hazardous toxic waste.


Amanda Barnes and her husband, Jim, along with their three children, have the best view of the oil rig and the drilling operations from the large windows from the west side of their River West home. Amanda, 38, and her husband arent concerned with the well or the health and safety ramifications.

I dont drink from a well, so Im not worried about my water, said Amanda, who has lived at River West since 2000. Were sitting on top of oil and gas. Our culture is dependent on that, and if we have the commodity right here why am I going to pay to import it. Fracking is going on everywhere, and its all over Weld County. People arent used to seeing it in their backyard. You cannot fight the oil companies. Its not my battle. I have so many other things to worry about. (emphasis added)

Amanda, who found out Tuesday that the drilling was stopped, said her family actually likes the way the oil rig looks instead of having to look at a landfill full of garbage.


Sometimes I don't know whether to cry or to just smack my head against the nearest brick wall.

According to Republicans

According to Republicans, it was just fine when Bush donned an enhanced flight suit to board an aircraft carrier in celebration of something that hadn't happened, but it's pure evil politics for Obama to mention having taken responsibility for doing something that Bush should have done and didn't.

Leftwing media bias, huh?

Reality is still on "ignore"

In Denver yesterday, a couple thousand people rallied to protest the Republicans' very real war on women. The media, both print and broadcast, chose to ignore the event. Among those ignored, this family:

I dream of the day when liberal media bias is a reality. . .
