Shocking! Just kidding. Of course, it’s Pennsyvania, the origins of the oil industry, then the pawns of coal, now the gas industry. And all these great industries have done what? Well, they have made Pennsylvania into one of the slum centers of the US. Please visit Pittsburgh and Harrisburg and Philadelphia to see the squalor produced by these great industries. The word ugly comes to mind. What’s really amazing is that there are people healthy enough to protest.

Who has been purchased by the gas industry? Is it the Governor? The legislators? Who, but other Pennsylvanians will suffer from this outragious attrocity purported for the good of all? Looks like you need to take back your state or import water, put up with earthquakes for the sake of the almighty dollar. How much is your house worth, your cattle and horses, your family without clean drinking water? What a disasterous state of affairs your commonwealth is buying into.
