I don't know how a journalist can get to sleep at night knowing he's backed up the goliath thieves whose laws allow them to steal riches right from under our feet while they ruin our land for generations.

Then again, I'm asking our local news writers to stand up to Goliath and risk losing a good job. It's understandable if they won't. However, at least they can retract that crapola about fracking being 100% safe! People are so gullible. It's hard to believe we are living in the 21st century with people as gullible as they are in "the greatest nation on earth".

It's very sad. Our founding fathers would have wanted us to rebel against Goliath corporations who corrupt everything they touch.

A landowner in Mantua, 25 minutes from here, claims his well water lights on fire, from the faucet, since fracking began on his property. Isn't this Ohio headline news? Our new$ allows ga$ and oil companie$ to hide behind lie$ that it is 100% $afe, even when they know full well that it isn't. This fact make$ all of their legal contract$ to frack in Ohio null and void, being agreement$ made in bad faith.

There are countless examples of fracking-contaminated water tables across America. That's exactly why fracking laws were changed to exclude the Clean Water Act before "leases" were signed. Now giant oil and gas corporations can legally rape our land and move on without any legal obligations to clean up messes they leave behind for us and for generations of Ohioans to come...

The corporate-friendly law states: the entire burden of proof is on the landowner in Mantua to prove his water was good, $30,000 in tests, 6months before drilling began! Good luck!

Turn it over to the EPA. The ODNR is understaffed and unqualified to deal with the impending Fracking environmental disaster in Ohio.
