    has not influenced your opinion in the slightest.

    For the record, I am neither rich nor a mom, and I most certainly do not live in a mega mansion.

    I'm sure you have your own (self interested) reasons for being pro-fracking, but that doesn't give you license to extrapolate your imaginings onto an entire movement.

    Also, feel free to tell the rich moms in mega mansions here how much of a big to do over nothing it is:

    Or maybe you could help them haul potable water and skip the smug lectures.

      of contamination.  You read it to mean a fracking well, with easement and maybe royalty payments.  Wonder which of us is right.

        "our town has been fracked heavily" to imply the well was either a drilling or injection well, not water.

        can barely afford houses let alone hobby ranches for pet horses.

        I just look on it from a realistic perspective. Does fracking cause harm? Not in our community. Why do we drill for oil? Because energy hogs in big houses flying around in airplanes taking vacations in foreign countries and buying multi thousand dollar mountain bikes demand lots of energy.

        I think they should site well heads next to the biggest energy users.

      to have one, I'm legally allowed 50 gallons a minute off my well. Our water is ok if heavily alkali as it's always been. Many go for public water because it tastes better, always has.

      Fracking is like driving a car, pollutes if done wrong, no problem if done right.
