  •  One of my biggest pet peeves - (8+ / 0-)

    We're thirsty for water, and they're shoving it into the ground for fracking.  Or using it in coal plants.

    What makes things even worse is the condition of Lake Texoma.  It's infested with zebra mussels, and they're invasive and impossible to kill.  I don't know why they don't take the water from Lake Texoma and use it for fracking - if it's going into the ground where we'll never see it again, at least use water that we can't use for anything else.

    Considering how often they promote themselves as "rugged individualists," it's pretty amazing how devoted Republicans are to marching in lockstep. - BiPM
