republicans took 8 years to get us in this mess. you can't expect obama to get us out in 18 months
IMHO what it really took was over 50 years.
It started with "....Floats all boats" and the erosion of Eisenhower's 92% TMR, and became "trickle Down," anti unionism, NAFTA and the Gramm/Leach/Bliley Act (=GLBA.)
Then when inevitably it broke, the "fix" was TARP and bailouts of the culprits.
No w the extractionists are having a field day, exporting ur energy security, by stripping the country (especially WV) of its remaining resources to ship overseas, like a stolen car in a chop shop.The immediate effect being rising domestic prices as we compete with the FIVEfold prices Japan pays for our own gas. Our taxes will go sky high as we subsidize the gas companies' enormously dangerous and expensive export ports and Chinese steel pipe-bomb pipelines. All to line the pockets of gas & oil companies; greedy something-for-nothing major investor/gamblers, and thousandfold-overpaid CEO's. And our health, environment, economy, and communities are the stripped, discarded frame of that stripped car.
Wake up RISE up West Virginia - get up,get out there, BLOCK the gas companies' hostile chemical warfare invasion, and vote Mountain (GREEN) Party (and support local anti-extraction candidates)!
