Good for them - seems Maine is full of inconsistencies, oh well - they're sometimes right!

National awareness of the dangers of fracking is growing all the time, isn't it?

GOOD!

Stop these bastards before they get started!

Wonderful. We have to do everything in order to stop all oil tar sand pipelines.

Noted. Thanks, Cal. Well, if we have to do this in a piecemeal process, I guess it's better than nothing. I still say we should just have a nationwide moratorium.

Good. I guess this is what it will take since Congress isn't going to stand up for the people. Congress is really raking in the money to vote for it so they don't have our best interest in mind.

HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL ~ People always hope for the best, even in the face of adversity. Thank goodness the citizens of Waterford, Maine are paying attention.
Perhaps, more communities should take heed and learn a valuable lesson.
The more we learn about the negative effects of these pipelines, the less we want them EVEN near our living areas, let alone through the towns.

We must remember, WE ARE, 'We the people'.
