In 2005 a law known as the "Halliburton loophole" exempted toxic chemicals that are used in fracking -- like arsenic and lead -- from regulation under the Safe Drinking Water Act with the exception of diesel fuel.

Did you know that Soda Ash and Costic Soda beads are used as well in fracking. Costic Soda Beads will eat you flesh on contact. Their is so much more I could mention from growing up in the oil field as my dad was a Mud Engineer and I even worked in the oil field when older with Halliburton and a few others. I'm so happy to sign this as this is serious and an important issue. Mud pits like in the picture are burried after their drained. Long story.

If you have seen rig blow outs and the grounds cave in like I have from fracking, you'd panic and sign this petition. If you want to see a rig blow out, etc. type in your google search: Drilling Rig Blow Out.

Song of the American Eagle
Poet Unknown

I build my nest on the mountain's crest,
Where the wild winds rock my eaglets to rest,
Where the lightnings flash, and the thunders crash,
And the roaring torrents foam and dash;
For my spirit free henceforth shall be
A type of the sons of Liberty.

Aloft I fly from my arie high,
Through the vaulted dome of the azure sky;
On a sunbeam bright take my airy flight,
And float in a flood of liquid light;
For I love to play in the noontide ray,
And bask in a blaze from the throne of day.

Away I spring with a tireless wing,
On a feathery cloud I poise and swing;
I dart down the steep where the lightnings leap,
And the clear blue canopy swiftly sweep;
For, dear to me is the revelry
Of a free and fearless Liberty.

I love the land where the mountains stand,
Like the watch-towers high of a Patriot band;
For I may not bide in my glory and pride,
Though the land be never so fair and wide,
Where Luxury reigns o'er voluptuous plains,
And fetters the free-born soul in chains.

Then give to me in my flights to see
The land of the pilgrims ever free!
And I never will rove from the haunts I love
But watch, from my sentinel-track above,
Your banner free, o'er land and sea,
And exult in your glorious Liberty.

O, guard ye well the land where I dwell,
Lest to future times the tale I tell,
When slow expires in smoldering fires
The goodly heritage of your sires,
How Freedom's light rose clear and bright
O'er fair Columbia's beacon-hight,
Till ye quenched the flame in a starless night.

Then will I tear from your pennon fair
The stars ye have set in triumph there;
My olive-branch on the blast I'll launch,
The fluttering stripes from the flagstaff wrench,
And away I'll flee; for I scorn to see
A craven race in the land of the free!

F.Y.I. - I have also reported all the ones that have ads on this page. I feel that all should be ashamed of themselves and that Customer service will soon take care of them.

I was wondering why all this concern about fracking chemicals when there are millions of times more chemicals being forced down injection wells all over the US>
