NYS anti-fracking advocates are quite aware of the sales team inflicted upon communities to entice local-community devastation for cash. Pre-fracking contracts in NYS were followed by local boys riding around in huge new pick-up trucks with giant wheels, stretch limousines gliding through local grocery store parking lots, and invitations from industry sales teams inviting local landowners to elegant conferences in local hotels with white table clothes and sparkling crystal, and said locals dressed in t-shirts and shit kickers, colloquially speaking.
Not to be left behind, local bureaucrats, politicians, college-industry “experts”, local lawyers, and industry salesmen hosted local-media “news conferences” to ‘splain to the locals the reason industrial takeover would be good for us. Why these weren’t investigated as sales seminars that should have followed guidelines of the SEC is a topic for discussion.
This is the culture foisted onto the people of Virginia. Actually Appalachia experienced this behavior long before did NYS.
https://www.commondreams.org/news/senate-mountain-valley-pipeline –But congressional Republicans ensured that preventing an economic catastrophe would come at a significant cost for vulnerable people and communities on the frontlines of the climate crisis—and the Biden White House ultimately acceded to some of the GOP hostage-takers’ demands, declining to use its executive authority to continue paying the nation’s bills.
“These provisions are a win for polluters, and the elected officials in their pocket,” said Alice Madden, policy and political director at Greenpeace USA.

Consider a few personal anecdotes learned during the decade-long fracking advocacy in NYS.
*HO-3 which most people use to protect their home, doesn’t cover industrial-fracking incidents
*A fracking contract on a land of a private-property owner may expose the property owner to liability from other land owners
*Fracking in a region means pipes may extend from contracted personal property onto the property of others
*The roads are used by large trucks that use the infrastructure for which they do not contribute cost for maintenance
*The Broome County attorney at the time appeared to be motivated to mail letters to lawmakers warning against conflict of interest
*This feels indicative of lack of confidence in bureaucratic integrity
*Imagine how We The People feel
*Money can’t “fix anything”

I know that most of you will not share this message, but if you are one of the people who have taken the time to read this far…

For those who weren’t born pre-Iraq War, Scott Ritter was the weapons inspector who reported that Iraq didn’t possess “weapons of mass destruction”, contrary to the insinuation to the contrary of The military-Industrial Complex and the Executive Branch of the 3-legged stool, The correct report from Scott Ritter was turned into a joke by MSM, as they “thought so you don’t have to”, that Iraq was somehow implicated in 9/11 ad had WMD’s and also responded to the caution exhibited by France on the topic, by relabeling french fries as Freedom fries. It’s gone downhill from there.
So now “the enemy” is Russia, and Scott Ritter is still attempting logical reporting.https://www.rt.com/russia/577345-russophobia-reality-us-ritter/ –While the official purpose of the visit was business (I was promoting my book, Disarmament Race, which has been published in the Russian language by the Komsomolskaya Pravda publishing house), the unofficial – and for me, most important – purpose of the visit was an opportunity to better understand today’s Russia. To do this, I was going to dig deeper into Russian history, get a better grasp of the culture, and, in the process, try to understand the “Russian soul” in as precise a manner as possible.

Globalization has been based upon finances, not, for example, human and natural rights. The players and profiteers are oligarchs. The military is used to “protect US interests overseas”….AKA oligarchical rights… liability and risk are placed upon the shoulders of local-community people, including Americans. Russian oligarchs, Ukrainian oligarchs, and American oligarchs are all implicated. —
https://www.rt.com/russia/577284-black-sea-tango-grain-deal/?utm_source=browser&utm_medium=push_notifications&utm_campaign=push_notifications –The conflict in Ukraine has demonstrated just how fragile globalization can be. As a result of a conflict in Eastern Europe, many external economies have slid into recession, politicians have allocated huge funds from national budgets for aid, global trade has been undermined, and billions of people have been put at risk of having their normal lives disrupted.

Establishment claims that democracy and “Western values” are the end-goal in foreign conflicts, seems laughable. ****
As one who would be perfectly contented to retain the Senate if they adhered to Oaths of Office more than to Citizens United campaign donations, one is interested in a topic raised as to the reason we maintain the US Senate—-
