Why Pennsylvania is a lost cause, unless We use Direct Action.

 

 

Sign all the petitions you want. Attend the rallies. Do you really think an “impact tax” is the solution? Just the idea of a chemical or in  Fracking speak a “trade secret solution” impacting an area is ludicrous. It is time for people to stop the machine, to bring the gears to a grinding halt. Speaking and being reasonable has no place in today’s word of protest. Step away and let the people who are willing to give it all to stop the assault on the game, flora, fauna and our fellow citizens in need.    FFF     OWS    OCCUPY    OCCUPY  BRADFORD

Utah Governor Gets it Right (unlike corbett) Charlee’s Law

“Charlee’s Law” will go into effect on July 1 and only allows certain patients with severe epilepsy to be prescribed a marijuana extract that is low in the high-inducing chemical tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, but full of cannabidiol , or CBD — a chemical that many say is unmatched when it comes to conquering seizures but stops short of getting users stoned.

“Cannabis oils show promise of offering some relief to Utahans suffering from seizures and epilepsy and we should do all we can to help them,” Gov. Herbert said last week. “My concern has been that the products are produced properly and that we have the adequate protections in place. Ultimately, I am satisfied the bill provides for that and I decided to sign it.”

Finaly a man who realizes that I (we) don’t want weed to get high. I could care less if the plant has any THC in it. Only until you have lived a life with uncontrolled siezures can you understand what it would be like not to take several AED’s twice a day and still not know when the next siezure is going to hit or where it will hit.

The idea of actually having my siezures under control by taking an oil or paste naturally is enough to uproot me from my home and look for land in area that isn’t  being bought and sold by bankers, big oil/gas, and the Sickness Industry that has transformed America’s healthcare system into just another business.

CORBETT YOU ARE A FOOL.

 Hospitals should not be listed on the NYSE and Real Medicine should not have a warning label. bfy.   FFF   OCCUPY  OWS  OCCUPY THE FARM      

Not in YOUR BACKYARD, THINK AGAIN…another week of Drilling in Pennsylvania.

          The whole concept of “fining” giant gas and oil companies after they have violated the earth is as ridiculous as the nation’s idea of having a healthcare system based on sickness not wellness. 

Mixing chemicals with water and then trying to seperate the two after the fact is essentially what the idea of  responsible hydro-fracturing is in PA currently. There is no way natural gas can be affordable in PA( unless you had your own well to fill your own #natgas converted vehicles and enclosed your whole property in concrete and even then the water use would make it a #negativesumenergy source.)

NOT forgetting The West Virginia Spill

donate-897x1024  So many times these events are forgotten, and as usuall, this is no exception. The people that have been awakened by the irritation, burning and inaccessibility to clean water are still suffering. YOU CAN’T POUR 25,000 GALLONS of  4-Methylcyclohexane methanol into Elk River and think it will just “dissipate” over time. The sad thing is little is known about the Toxic Chemical because Freedom Industries (responsible for the spill)is a typical case of corporate abuse . “In West Virginia, both the Republicans and Democrats are bought and paid for and regularly mouth Wall Street’s deregulatory dogma. West Virginia’s Department of Environmental Protection is in the pocket of the coal and chemical industries. The state’s mainstream media — with the exception of the Charleston Gazette — is asleep at the wheel.” Was quoted from a post shortly after the spill. They also admitted to spilling a chemical called  “Stripped PPH”, that was the second release of facts though. Stripped PPH is mixed at a rate of 6%, with “Polyglycol Ethers” and with the rest of the chemical is a “Trade Secret”.
