I am sure FRAKING has worked in other parts of the country, but here in Arkansas it caused so many earth quakes (which nobody seems to talk about) that they suspended the operations which are currently stopped. Suprisingly the earthquakes stopped also in central Arkansas. Of course nobody wants to talk about that result.

I heard about the earthquakes on the Weather Channel. They suspected fracking might be causing some of them, since it does fracture the rock, but I don't know if they proved it or not. I can agree that it's a potential problem, especially in more seismically active areas. I hope they do more research into this.

“Fracking” is one of those words that will set any given Progressive off like a roman candle. Kind of like “marriage” “Bible” or “America”. It will produce a mouth foaming, wild-eyed reaction reminiscent of the beast-man that attacked Michael York in the cave scene of the 1977 version of The Island of Dr. Moreau. I am not going to go into detail about fracking, except to say that despite the breathless propaganda, there has never been a serious incident from it, and that it helps keep many people employed and provides energy.

Oh, and if it was truly the boogeyman...
