    Isn't this man and his family representative of the "real Americans" she and others like her love to tout and defend?   Except when they dare speak out against oil and gas interests, I guess.

    I don't know anything about this man's political beliefs, and he seems like a decent person. But I must say this story somewhat falls into my "it's different when it's me" file that we see played out in society all the time.  

    I guess it's natural that we would be more concerned about an issue when it impacts us personally, but it is sad we don't have more of an ability to walk in another man's shoes and respect his point of view.  Talking to you Rex Tillerson, with your concern over property values and quality of life when a corporation proposes to do something in your neighborhood.

      no partisan angle. It is We the People against Them the Super Corporate Persons. Most of the politicians appear to be on the wrong side.

      We can only fix this like Randy has done and continues to do--by banding together and asserting our rights as real people.
