time for Pa to wise up

Im very passionate about the movement to end fracturing in Pa and across the country. It makes me sick to see commercials and ads posturing to the emotional element deep within Pennsylvanians, employing fathers and sons going fishing and farmers eking out a living. Its time for Pennsylvanians to wise up and realize gas drilling companies are spending huge amounts of money to build these campaigns and they arent doing so because they have a soft spot for family values. Once they smash up our landscape and poison our water supply, they will be able to move on with little obligation to clean up our state because theyve managed to pay off every leader who would otherwise have enacted legislation to curb the damage caused by their greed.
