12:18AM On a re-play of “The Ed Show,” I saw a journalist, Josh Fox, being arrested while covering a public hearing on “fracking.” This time it’s Indiana where GOP darling, Mitch Daniels, is governor. All over the nation, Republican governors seem to have organized a conspiracy to disenfranchise anyone or anything that stands in the way of the vested interests of those who benefit from Citizens United. I must admit that I tried to understand the Wikipedia article on Citizens United…and failed. One contributor of Big Money to the Republic Party who would benefit is Exxon. One such governor is Rick Walker of Wisconsin. There the people were so incensed by Republican Governor that they secured twice as many signatures required to invoke a RECALL OF THEIR GOVERNOR. People Power, grassroots efforts…people, they work! I hope that you will encourage US Attorney General, Eric Holder, to investigate this suspected (alleged) “conspiracy.” which is today as powerful as Al Capone‘s syndicate was when rampant crime and corruption ruled Chicago. It cannot be random that the same unheard of tactics are being used to restructure America.[To what end I cannot discern.] Mitt Romney said yesterday, “I don’t care about the very poor. They have a safety net”..and if it needs fixing, I will fix it. I suspect he is lying after seeing him prevaricate on TV. What is the safety net? Where can I sign up. (: Have you attended one of the GOP rallies this election season? Yes? Then you know of which I speak. Bless those who care to be stewards of God’s gift to man: Our environment!
Perfect time to re-publish a post on the subject. I hope it is informative. And for a chuckle, read this post.
1:12AM Hmm. Am I sleepy enough to go back to bed? Maybe I’ll have Fudge Stick (ice cream). :)
THIS IS WHY WE NEED AN ACTIVE ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY AND WHY THE GOP CANDIDATES ARE NOT TALKING ABOUT THIS SUBJECT. WHY? Republicans are heavily funded by BIG OIL! When they come to your town, attend the rally and pose questions about “fracking”.

Are you opposed to Keystone XL Pipeline which Republicans in Congress are so hot to construct across our fertile agriculture zone which includes a vital aquifer: water.
Watch Josh Fox lead a demonstration
President Obama opposes construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. Republicans make weak toeffort to justify the transportation of extremely toxic tar sands from Canada to refineries in Texas. And, there is no guarantee that you or I will be sold the gasoline produced. So, our corrupt politician will profit and we may not get the revenue. Thanks to President Obama and EPA requirements, that matter is suspended. Read this previous post about some some in the Congress who are pushing for Keystone XL.
Crime Boss Al Capone
Have noticed the quiet ads on TV which softsoap the oil industry…saying that their industry is safe? (Remember the EXXON Valdives? Oil Spill in The Gulf?
Well, this post is getting pretty long. Have a super day!
