The base of the conservative movement is old, white, Christian and extremely bigoted. As they die off (while draining every penny from Medicare, the kind of government program they claim to despise), they will not be replaced and the right knows it

I am reposting this as per Priscilla B.’s request.
1- Contamination of potable ground water with methane or traces of fracking chemicals; 2-surface water pollution from dumping hyper-salty post-frack wastewater into rivers; 3-harmful air pollution levels at fracking sites and nearby; 4-methane leakage, which may massively boost the greenhouse gas impact of fracking; and 5-earthquakes caused by the injection of post-frack wastewater deep underground.
/ Just some of the things Fracking does.
Its next Tuesday, June 5th, and should be a nice peaceful protest. Its getting closer to the time when a decision will be made on Fracking in NYS. I believe we need to be vigilant and not let the Governor forget about this & know how many New Yorkers (overwhelmingly) oppose Fracking in our state. I am going to try to go to this event. Feel free to contact me, (Bob Dorn) at 8453452160 or 8458265925, should you wish to carpool to Albany for this event.
Environmental 'plea' in Rap mode from a group of NYC kids.
I HEARD THIS ON ONE OF MY PODCASTS WHILE WALKING YESTERDAY IN WOODBOURNE TRAIL PARK. IT REALLY GOT TO ME. SO SIMPLE AND SO WELL DONE.
An inspiring article from ‘ClearStreamMedia’ and our sister in MoveOn, Barbara Upton.
I found this group on FB called, PROTEST MOVEON.ORG, whose mission, is stated as: “… to defend and protect against the intolerance and hate towards people of Christian beliefs and values. To support the sanctity of marriage between a man and woman and the sanctity of all human Life.
So, they are really a group of fundy christians, and anti “marriage equality”, anti “LGBT” or Gay group, i.e. just another HATE group hiding their ‘agenda’ behind a FB page.
