A documentary that declares the gas industry's portrayal of natural gas as a clean and safe alternative to oil is a myth, and that fracked wells inevitably leak over time, contaminating water and air, hurting families, and endangering the earth's climate with the potent greenhouse gas methane.Written by
It's us. The people. Jobs. Security. Television. Private property. Yale. West Point. Wal Mart. CNN. A new truck. A roasted turkey. Everyone of the complaining parties in the land "Gasland" portraits seems to own a pickup truck. I saw only big trucks. New trucks. Bought with the money the gas and oil corporations paid them for their land to be fracked. Then the chemicals started leaking. Water ruined. The big wake-up. Too late. Money already pocketed, truck bought, TV bought, disclosure agreement signed. Too late.
Truck drivers don't care. We don't care until our own water supply is being taken from us.
I genuinely do appreciate this documentary. It does not only expose the irreparable damage caused by fracking, but it exposes (perhaps without being aware of it) how it is happening. What Homeland America made of? It shows who is fracking who. Corporations only pocked the profit. The 1% doesn't drive hundreds of thousands of trucks. The 1% doesn't drill and operate hundreds of thousands of wells. They pay off our government the same way they pay off us. Disclosure agreement signed.
Vietnam veterans. Iraq veterans. Afghanistan veterans. War criminals in my eyes. Or perhaps 'only' the truck drivers of war criminals 'protecting' the Homeland by destroying other peoples home land continents away. Where is Iraq again? Afghanistan? Is there perhaps oil to be drilled or pipelines to be build in these far away foreign home lands? Let's get them some freedom. Let's get them some truckloads of freedom. Bombs first. Then American Sniper. Then American Halliburton. It's also red. Like Coca Cola. And blood. Blood and stripes.
American war veterans are now being the victims of the corporations they helped so successfully to grow in power.
America is fracking itself.
Go and watch American Sniper. Support war. Don't care about Iraqi citizens. They are all terrorists. They are not citizens anymore. They don't have a country anymore. It has been fracked away from them. It's been drilled apart by Halliburton. You were driving the tanks and the trucks then. You are still driving the trucks now, in your backyard.
How many wells across the US?
How many truckloads needed for one well?
How many truck drivers?
Who cares about your water?
There is no Corporate America. There is no Halliburton. There is only us working for them. To have a job. A new big Ford F250. A TV in the kitchen, to watch the 'news' while we roast our turkeys. Two cars. Three cars. Thank you very much.
On another note, how many ethnic, African American, Native Indian, Asian American, Latino American land owners did we meet in this film? None. The only African American we encounter in this portrait of America are one child and one President.
Also, once we ruined all our drinking water what do we think will happen next? The price for drinking water will sky rocket. And guess who will own the only clean drinking water wells then? I've got a good feeling about it. Thank you very much.
