I'm waiting for those at the head of Corporations to be arrested for poisoning our water via fracking and the pipelines. Or how about using the wastewater from fracking to irrigate our crops? Monsanto, for it's ongoing onslaught to our foods, soil, and vegetation. Why are not they being arrested?

Petitions signed.

Why don't they care more about the real criminals and what is so bad about feeding hungry people? This is not only disgraceful but really asocial and degenerate (like the president...).
