We are dieing here!
This end of NY State has nothing in the way of an economy any more. We NEED economic activity. The state needs tax revenues. We NEED jobs. People are losing their homes.
Drilling for the gas could put an end to all this.
But no, this is New York. Run by a bunch of stupid, stupid, stupid, stupid dumb stupid ignorant (did I mention stupid?) ignorant stupid dumb sonsofbitches.
Meanwhile, just a few miles away, across the border in Pennsylvania they are booming - extracting, selling and benefiting from the very same gas WE could be drilling.
But no, this is New York. Run by a bunch of stupid, stupid, stupid dumb bastards from downstate. (It bears repeating)
....Don't worry the drillers in Pennsylvania are horizontal drilling so they're probably getting your gas anyway. /sarc
“We are dying here ...”
Sooooo frustrating! My daughter and future son in law just bought rural land in Westford, Otsego County. You have to drive through the impoverished (although very charming) town of Worcester to get there. The number of anti fracking signs in the yards is simply ridiculous!! I think they are trnasplanted Long Islanders and don’t get it.
Can’t they see that their neighbors and the whole economy needs help?? I am very pro - environment but believe that the drilling can happen without ruining the environment. These people are not seeing the big picutre and feel virtuous about their small mindedness.
Sorry to rant, this ignorance is beyond annoying.
