Alfonzo Rachel does a good job calling out Michelle Obama.

Does Michelle Obama Only Represent the Black Community?



There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the **** race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs-partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the **** to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.  ~ Booker T. Washington

It's funny how Hillary dodges a few questions and now the press thinks she "talked" to them...

I don't understand the media's 'love' of Hillary.  She crooked and contemptuous.  It's so plain to see.

I'm thinking Obama's obsession with climate change was a moment the graduates of one of the academies won't soon forget...   after all climate change is a greater threat now than even terrorist!

I have a bad feeling that my mug is gonna be in the paper tomorrow, probably the front page....

I was sitting front row left with CL and the township planning comission members and looked left right into a couple news media cameras....  I'm not photogenic.

Basicaslly SRO at the high school with Sheppard, Zorn, Lavoy, J. Henry, Hoffman, Ned Berkey, Mark Brandt and other politicrats all in solidarity supporting the township's position on the Trendwell injection well permit.

CL gave a good speech btw.  Proud to be married to such an articulate speaker and proud of all the residents on Summerfield Township as well as the rest of Monroe County that showed up in support of a review and possible denial of the injection well permit.

The EPA has a lot of information to digest now.  Lets hope they make the right decision concerning waste injection in a known Karst area.  Fingers crossed.

I normally can't sit that long but every new speaker broght a different aspect to the table.  Was an interesting meeting.

For everyone that attended, I thought it showed solidarity united in a common cause that could impact everyone in the county and beyond.

I don't know which you are speaking, but show me a politician that answers the question and only the question all of the time.  You won't find one.

I thought that it was the republican ideal of the government staying out of the way of business.  The free market says they should be allowed to do it (no government interference) and if there are consequences you should not buy their product. 

Sorry, not trying to be rude.  It just seems so NIMBY

I agree the evidence seems to be there that it appears to be a very bad practice.  The fact that earthquakes have gone up 500% in areas with injection wells says a lot.  I hope you are successful.

The EPA is the oversight agency and the permit granting entity.  I'm not about government intervention in anything but in this case it's all very techinical and a bad outcome could very well impact everyone in the county that depends on a well for drinking water or irrigation and could actually impact Lake Erie because the injection fluid could travel that far if the well fails.

It's a big risk and unknown.

I agree that there should be a stop, or at least no new ones, until the science catches up and the government can keep us safe, if needed.  Unfortunately the industry is paying a lot of deniers to falsify the facts to make it seems safe or not happening.  Good luck to you, I hope it doesn't happen.

My playing devils advocate was to show that the government DOES have a role to play and the blanket saying that the government should stay out of business or let them police themselves isn't a good plan.

Well I have to say I'm not all on board with fracking. Yet I haven't seen any articles regarding the contamination of water tables in various locals. Have you?

John..

No, there aren't any and from a personal standpoint I don't want to see any, especially here in this Karst region.

Any contamination could be very widespread in a short amount of time, rendering the water unfit to drink.

Our point is why take the chance in the first place, the risk (because of the Karst substrata) is so great, it borders on insane to inject hazardous fluids underground.

Our water isn't all that great in the first place.  I don't want to turn on the faucet and have down hole injected waste coming out in my sink.

There are no fracking operations in Monroe County - just conventional drilling.
