  1. Well, when you're right you're right. And I suspect Romney is a socialist too! http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/45755883/vp ... 8#48409508
  2. http://robertreich.org/post/26903999855 The proposed tax increase on income over $250,000 shakes out a little differently than what the regressive right wants you to believe. As proud Americans we should want to take our political system back from the big money boys. [ Post made via Android ]
  3. Well, I was just trying to give you some food for thought.. you know what they say about leading a horse to water but you can't make him admit why it's on fire OK man, enjoy your weekend...like you said, enough is enough!
  4. Well said, my friend. I wish it was that simple. At least we can agree to disagree. Rather than natural gas as the panacea to our energy needs, perhaps we should look to the future. In 5 years time, solar energy will be cheaper and cleaner to produce than energy from fossil fuels. It's too bad the Chinese and Europeans will be making all the money on that new technology... the oil corporations who own all the politicians in this country sure as he11 won't allow us to invest in it. Not to add fuel to the fire, but here's a catchy little tune called "My Water's On Fire Tonight" . The truth about Dimock: More here: Please take the time to watch this particularly well done documentary with an open mind. You may or may not find it refutes all your best arguments. A simple but effective warning. I will try to enjoy the tribs, but with the way global-warming has been doing a number on U.S. precipitation levels, we'll be lucky if we get much of a run this fall. BTW, how'd you know I've been using red worms and night crawlers lately?
  5. Thanks for the link. Most, if not all professors will tell you Wikipedia isn't a reliable source of information, but if it helped you, that's good. Be thankful for activists bringing attention to the dangers of fracking. Without opposing voices (telling the truth), people who don't know any better would just bend over and take whatever the oil companies wanna give them. And some of 'em would even be happy about it! Yikes! To each his own, I guess. Good luck with the walleyes.
  6. That's just great...the people of Dimock, Pa. are getting water treatment systems instead of having to rely on water rations. Now the oil corporations can pat themselves on the back and go on to create more situations that need to be cleaned up.. With facts like that, are you sure you're not working for Josh Fox? And on what planet is the position of professor not a real job?
  7. http://www.desmogblog.com/sites/beta.de ... erFire.pdf The "Energy In Depth" project would not be possible without the early financial commitments of: El Paso Corporation, XTO Energy, Occidental Petroleum, BP, Anadarko, Marathon, EnCana, Chevron, Talisman, Shell, API, IPAA, Halliburton, Schlumberger and the Ohio Oil and Gas Association. Many of our cooperating associations have also been working hard on this campaign and I'd like to thank them as well. But we can also use more help. Please let me know if you could make a contribution to this effort. We have built a great foundation, but the battle is just beginning.

  11. Yep, it sure is...of course it's from RS, so we can dismiss any factual information therein.
  12. I don't really understand your logic with the example about Sodium Fluoride. Eating too many candy bars will give you a belly ache, but that's not the same thing as the cumulative damage to the human body over time from ingesting low doses of toxic chemicals. It's been proven low doses of hydrofracking chemicals over time will cause deadly diseases unlike low doses of fluoride in the water which is used to prevent tooth decay. What's the solution if the drinking water in certain areas becomes poisoned with small amounts of toxic chemicals? If you look at the history of hydrofracking in this country, it's a given that there will be accidents regardless of preventative measures or imposed safety regulations. Paying fines for violations is just part of the cost of doing business for the companies that run these operations, but it's a serious health issue for those who are exposed to the outcome of those operational "mistakes". I do understand where you're coming from with your fixation on the New York Times, but who really cares if the article is from the New York Times? I tend to be somewhat conservative in my outlook, yet I take positions that could be defined as "liberal" in regards to some issues. I'm not an ideologue...ideologues are forced to ignore large chucks of reality in order to support their narrowly defined ideals. Regardless of the source of information, Facts are Facts. The editorial pages of the NYT have a more liberal slant than some other papers, but good journalism is good journalism regardless of the banner it's under. I read the Wall Street Journal, cognizant of the fact that it's a conservative publication. I agree with some of their editorials and may disagree with others, but above that, I value their reporting on events and issues because they offer good journalism. Also in defense of using the NYT as a source of information, Daniel Patrick Moynihan once said, Political society wants things simple. Political scientists know them to be complex... One could argue that, in part, the leftist impulse is so conspicuous among the educated and well-to-do precisely because they are exposed to more information, and are accordingly forced to choose between living with the strains of complexity, or lapsing into simplism. He also said " Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not his own facts". Can you point to something that is factually incorrect in those articles and back up your assertion with a reputable source? I ask this rhetorically, because I don't want to get into a debate. Let's face it, you and I are never going to agree on whether or not hydrofracking would be in the best interest of our state.. So if I may, I'll respectfully ask that we agree that we disagree and just leave it at that. Deal? As for your other questions, the answer is no to all of them.... be careful about making assumptions !
  13. The day my girlfriend's son caught his 1st steelhead was a magical day.. I had just caught one and as kids will be, he got very sad, thinking he'll never catch one, so I asked him if I could cast his line for him...seconds later, I hooked one, handed him the rod and he had the time of his life trying to land that fish! It actually pulled him to his knees a couple of times, but in the end we managed to get it in the net!
  14. Thanks for the info...I didn't know you could still get them. When I was a kid, I used to catch a lot of nice trout in the local creek using the smaller versions of the EGB...when I happened to see the pic of the EBG Blinker online the other day, it brought back some good memories. They have such good action because of their weight...they certainly aren't stingy with the heavy gauge metal, and the built-in swivel is a nice feature that also adds to their movement. Essentially, they're very well-crafted lures.
  15. Does anyone know the name of this spoon and if it's still possible to buy them? I saw it online somewhere, and remembered it from when I was a kid as being very well made and effective. EDIT: I found it!
  16. A ball playing or a kite flying accident or spilling a little oil in the driveway probably won't make your children die of cancer. Ask someone who has to live near a hydro-fracking operation gone wrong, if they think hydro-fracking is safe. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/11/20/magazine/fracking-amwell-township.html In Amwell Township, Pa., the dividing line is between those who are getting rich and those who are paying the price. I expect that some people will not read this because it doesn't support their point of view. They are content to repeat the propaganda that the big energy companies promote with their big $$$ political campaign contributions and lobbying efforts. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/11/26/nyregion/hydrofracking-debate-spurs-huge-spending-by-industry.html Millions Spent in Albany Fight to Drill for Gas By THOMAS KAPLAN Published: November 25, 2011 Energy companies that drill for natural gas have spent unprecedented amounts of money lobbying the Cuomo administration as environmentalist groups have struggled to be heard.
  17. The Companies Have released the ingredients. Maybe a little reading will help you on this subject. I know it takes more time than hearing from other people talk that dont read either but you can Learn if you read it for yourself. They even have the MSDS for it That is the Material Safety Datat Sheet want to make sure you know what that is so you dont misinterpret that for something also. http://www.halliburton.com/public/proje ... tml?SRC=MP In the Pennsylvania WaterFrac Formulation, Halliburton lists hydrochloric acid as one of the primary "constituents". http://www.halliburton.com/public/projects/pubsdata/Hydraulic_Fracturing/fluids_disclosure.html Product Name.........................Additive............Purpose...........................................................................................Concentration 7.5% Hydrochloric Acid (HCl) | Acid / Solvent | Removes scale and cleans wellbore prior to fracturing treatment | 1000-4000 gal run ahead of frac Is 1000 to 4000 gallons of 7.5% HCL a lot? How the frick often does it run ahead of frac? Every day? Every few minutes? Hydrochloric acid is designated as being hazardous "as it appears on MSDS" but as a qualifier, they list some common usages of it which includes the production of olives, unripened cheese, and yes, say it ain't so...Cottage Cheese! The next thing you know, those environmentalists will be trying to take away our delicious cheese. Seriously though, anyone who enjoys the benefits of clean water and good health should read the Material Safety Data Sheets because it doesn't take a genius to understand they describe a concoction of nasty poisonous chemicals.
  18. Thanks...I'll keeping using egg sacks until I run out..hopefully I'll catch another egg-bearing fish before then!
  19. I was thinking of using it as an alternative to floating egg sacks in a small stream. The scent would dissipate more slowly, holding in concentration longer, than while trolling in deep water with a spoon...giving the fish more of an opportunity to smell it. So if that theory holds water , would it be effective?
  20. My sincerest condolences for your loss. I know it's not easy, I lost my dad last March. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. May she rest in peace.
  21. I had a somewhat crazy idea to use oil from fish oil capsules on sponge for steelhead. It might be close enough to the scent of salmon eggs to attract fish. Has anyone tried it? Would it work? [ Post made via Android ]
