Sorry you don't think our air and water is more important than providing transient jobs.

I wish people in this valley would wake up and try to ne constructive and work for a good future instead of more Obama candy in the mailbox. The fracking they complain about could be putting good money in their pockets if they get off the couch and go to work.
