    We really have to get out the state Democratic vote. Otherwise big energy will take over PA for sure.

    The first time I registered to vote in 71'. I couldn't vote because I didn't know how to find my polling place.

    So I'm sharing voting info with everyone. I think it would be especially helpful for first time voters.

      you have a substance that is directly experienced by ordinary people, road salt-- this is the kind of issue that can galvanize opposition to the corrupt governor and state, in terms that people can understand vicerally. Doesn't matter if your movement is 2 people with flat tires and a mimeograph... this issue is perfect to organize around.

        Especially with the fracking waste being so toxic.

        They say these fluids contain radioactive radon.

        I remember over thirty years ago when people were finding radon in their basements and on their property.

        Here they would have been  spreading it all over. It would get on the cars and people.

        What a jerk colbert is. If I was Gov. I would do the right thing.
        What's with these fools? Don't they realize how lucky they are to have been elected.

        They should care about those who elected them, not money. Really, how rich do they need to be!

        I guess I just don't understand politics. How these idiots even get elected? But amazingly they do!
