Never let a crisis go to waste, especially one that you create yourself. Rahm taught us this cool trick. We have riled up so many on the Right over gun legislation, they don’t seem to be noticing the other new things that we are doing. New is the operative word. So while everybody’s panties are in a wad over guns, we are
sneaking in proposing bills to control your life move Maryland Forward.
Watch this trick on gun legislation. I can make your Second Amendment rights disappear.
Here’s a short list of new rabbits in the hat (and boy are they multiplying):
What is fracking, you ask?
According to Wikipedia:
Induced hydraulic fracturing or hydrofracturing, commonly known as fracing, fraccing, or fracking, is a technique used to release petroleum, natural gas (including shale gas, tight gas, and coal steam gas), or other substances for extraction. This type of fracturing creates fractures from a wellbore drilled into reservoir rock formations.
Hydraulic fracturing will account for nearly 70% of natural gas development in the future. Hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling apply the latest technologies and make it commercially viable to recover shale gas and oil. In the United States, 45% of domestic natural gas production and 17% of oil production would be lost within 5 years without usage of hydraulic fracturing.
So, what’s the Big Fracking Deal? It sounds pretty good for making us energy independent.
That’s not how we roll, yo. We are scarfing up farmland and making it off limits for development (or exploration). We attend the church of Agenda 21 where it’s First Commandment is “Thou shall have no other gods before me.” God is the sustainable earth (or Al Gore’s bank account). So, just shut the frack up about fracking!
In our alternate universe, we fantasize about a world of wind:
“Moving forward with off-shore wind could make Maryland, the new manufacturing hub for wind turbines.”
Isn’t MOM is so brilliant, so global, and so non-box thinking?
The answer my friends, is blowin’ in the wind, the answer is blowin in the wind.
