You know, about now you can say that there is some real NIMBY going on here with the consequences of wealth concentrating behavior. Consider that it is very likely (as Rex Tillerson so aptly illustrated in his successful ban of fracking near one of his many homes) that wealthy Wall St types don't want frackers mussing around their country estates, but it is more than welcome to take place near, on, and under Main St and the "Flyer Over" in general. Sometimes I get the impression that the entire interior of the United States is one big red lined zone, where corporations are welcome to do alls sorts of horrible bullshit to max out their profits. Think about it, you think Monsanto and GE are trying out their franken-veggie agent-orange crops on farms that abutt homes in, say, the Hamptons, or White Plains - hell no! That shit is for the 99% to burdened with, and oh, don't cha know they'll say, that's just because that's where the crops or shale deposits are afterall!? It's just a coincidence that's were the 99% live and play. And by the way you'll get the necessary vacine after Wall St banks have stock piled enough for the mail room attendants great great granny three times removed! (remember that?!)

I really liked how Obama recently overrode the Gov. of Virginia and is allowing fracking in the George Washington National Forest. AWESOME!!!!! What a legacy!
