If you oppose us you are against America, against jobs and a godlesscommunist!” Has worn thin!

If you live in a house with contaminated groundwater, a mudpit chock full of benzene and diesel on your property and cracked walls in your living room….you want to see something done! Surface owners all over these shale plays have suffered damage and injury from these activities. It will cost more but should we lose our land and peace of mind and our groundwater? It may be that trial lawyers will be able to do what state legislators don’t have the guts to do…that is protect the public that elected them!!!!
