    If fracking and getting all this natural gas is so important for us, why is it that even with all this fracking, all this destruction to our own backyards, is the price of natural gas rising here?
    Because it's being shipped overseas. This has nothing to do with the American People or America's national interest. It is about boosting Big Oil's profits. Big Oil is multinational and quite happy to treat the United States like Nigeria or Ecuador: drain the carbon fuel, destroy the land, poison the water and move on. Before Obama, we had people protecting us against such depredations but now we don't. It is open season for Big Oil and the U.S. is offering itself up like a cheap whore.
