NO FRACKING – EVER!
Perhaps there are some that may remember when abandoned coal mines in Pennsylvania were once used as storage–dumps for chemical-wastes that were stored in metal drums that eventually began to leak and spill their toxic-cancerous & hazardous-wastes into the soil in the old mines that seeped into the underground streams and POISONED the water in wells, lakes & streams, etc. The disposal of chemical-wastes has always been a problem! The chemical, fluoride, for example, is a by-product & chemical-waste when making Aluminum – so what did Alcoa Aluminum Corporation do? They began dumping it into city water supplies & TOOTHPASTE under the pretext that it would harden our teeth – AS LONG AS YOU DID NOT SWALLOW – for fluoride inside your body will ROT YOUR TEETH from the inside out!
The same has occurred with the chemical-salts included with cinders on roadways during snow storms! The ‘hot-salts’ melt the snow & ice upon contact, just as rock-salt does on your steps in the winter, but it also RUSTS METAL upon contact as seen on the undercarriage of automobiles & trucks, etc. And anyone who has been in a northern city where ‘Chemical-Salts’ are used for snow-removal will see the salts EAT CEMENT – that’s why major northern cities are working 24/7 to repair roadways, bridges & under-passes around the clock every day of the year! And what do you think happens when these chemical-salts run off roadways into streams, lakes & rivers, etc.? Yep, they kill fish & all marine life in their path! So if this CHEMICAL-POISON kills marine & wildlife when it poisons water – what do you think it does to HUMANS when these toxic chemicals are forced into deep underground wells? IT MURDERS THE EARTH!
Since the creation of mankind, to destroy or poison a well-of-water was punishable by Death! And if any nation or people poison or destroy the drinking supply of another, it is an ACT OF WAR! Now we have multinational-corporations poisoning the drinking water resources in over 25 states West of the Mississippi already, and now attempting to do the same thing here in the Appalachian Mountains! The difference is that here we can own our mineral rights, whereby West of the Mississippi most folks only own surface rights!
Now while the WV State Legislature has permitted ‘fracking’, i.e., the forced pumping of chemical-toxic-wastes down deep drill-holes allegedly to force trapped natural & methane gas to come to the surface – the Legislature also required the drinking & surface water to remain UNDISTURBED – meaning the water has to remain as PURE as it was to begin with BEFORE THE ‘FRACKING’! As a direct & proximate result – WE CAN BAN ‘FRACKING’ FROM THIS COUNTY – FOREVER!
Since NORMAN LEE ALDERMAN (Rep-SD) & PATTI HEINEMANN (Dem-ND) have chosen to run a ‘United Campaign’ supporting the same Issues, known as their ‘15 POINTS’ – since this is the first time in our lifetime that we can elect TWO COMMISSIONERS AT THE SAME TIME – both Norman & Patti have chosen to support the great idea of BOTTLING PURE WATER from the Natural Springs owned by private-citizens throughout the county! Not only will this create a great deal of NEW & LASTING JOBS – it will bring a huge amount of new funds into this county on a monthly basis and provide a DEBT-FREE-CASHFLOW that will provide a benefit for everyone in this county!
This whole new Idea will become a PURE WATER CO-OP whereby each owner of a Natural Spring can SHARE IN THE WEALTH of bottling pure water to be sold all around the world as ‘Pocahontas Pure’! If Norman & Patti are both elected, then this concept can be fully OPERATIONAL by this time next year – since it requires a building facility similar to the empty building at Edray! THAT’S why it will take two –commissioners in agreement to make it happen! And that’s why this county needs its OWN ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY instead of seeing all our funds ‘stolen’ by the privately-owned Greenbrier Valley Economic Development Corporation (GVEDC)!
Currently the ‘income’ to this county comes in the form of ‘government subsidies’ to certain farmers; ‘minimum-wages’ for employees of local businesses, gas-stations & Snowshoe/Silver Creek; and, in the form of a ‘fixed-income’ for Senior Citizens and others. BUT a PURE WATER CO-OP means no less than $1000 per/month to those on a ‘fixed-income’ as allowed by law, and the balance to other family members to boost the family income as the CO-OP grows in sales, etc.
Bottling PURE WATER from the Natural Springs in this county will provide lots of new & lasting jobs whereby folks will be WORKING FOR THEMSELVES in cooperation (CO-OP) with others – and at the same time BAN ‘FRACKING’ FROM THIS COUNTY FOREVER!
THIS TIME…there’s no excuse…
