Eco-activism is a phony ‘Religion’

Don’t say it’s not.  Because it is.  Here’s why.  Whenever a belief is spread around with little real proof, one must have faith that it is true.  No one can look into a hole and tell what is going on.  No one can tell why water taste or smells the way it does.  It out of sight, but not out of mind

Eco-activists go on phony “faith”.  They attach themselves to phony “god-like” people and hold onto their phony faith.  Yes!  It’s like a religion.

They have:

  • A ‘jesus’.  He’s Al Gore
  • ‘disciples’   They number in the thousands and can be seen on TV and in Congress.
  • ‘holy water’ in the form of marijuana.  I call it ‘Holy Hooch’.  There’s always a drug involved in phony religions.  It’s their Koolaid.
  • ‘mother mary’   in the form of any actress or actor who bothers to show up.
  • ‘mary magdalene’  in the form of whatever female or male who wants to have sex.  Sex is a very important thing when phony religions come into play.
  • ‘gospels’ written by phony disciples and kookie dope smokers.  The early Christians had scores of gospels until an emperor culled them out.   As it stands now, anti-frackers have scores of phony ‘gospels’, too.
  • ‘letters’ written by kookie people make up the foundation of this so-called religion.  The epistles are social media posts or tweets.

Here’s the reality;  Drive on U.S. 380 from Denton, Texas, to Post, Texas.   Along the way you will see drilling rigs tapping the Barnett Shale.  You will see pump jacks pumping, You will see new roads and bridges, new homes and businesses, new government building and schools.   The ranchers have new American made pickups.

The air is clear and fresh.  The night sky is clear and the stars twinkle.  The milky way is bright and beautiful.

It’s the Barnett Shale.

When I was working for an petroleum company in Fort Worth in the middle 1980’s, they were using hydraulic fracturing technology .  They only had the technology to do fracture vertically.  Now they bend the shaft and go horizontal. It was perfectly understandable to me.  I had studied geology and mineralogy at Texas A&M University.

They knew then about the enormous amount of hydrocarbons in the Barnett Shale, but did not have a way to get it out of the ground.  I went to work for another company and lost contact with the petroleum business.  I wish I hadn’t left.


Will the Keystone Pipeline Harm the environment?


The InkDemon wants to know the answer to another question:

Why did not the Republicans put this map out there?

Why didn’t U.S. House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner call a news conference and show this map?   Is he smoking dope, too?

Why didn’t my congressman, Rep. Sam Johnson, put this map on his web page?

Why didn’t Al Lee, who is running for the U.S. Congress and is promising to look out for the people, put these maps on his web site?

Why didn’t Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney, and “Slick” Rick Santorum, and even Ron Paul put this map on their web sites?

Who IS looking out for America?  Who is looking out for the folks?  I didn’t see this on Bill O’Reilly’s Show!

Is everyone too absorbed in watching, Days of Our Lives on TV?

smoke_dopeCome on people!  Republicans are supposed to be smarter than this?  Is everyone smokin’ DOPE?

It should have been simple.  Get a map and show the people where the existing pipelines are.  Overlay the existing pipelines with the proposed pipeline.   That would have exposed Obama and his liberal friends for what they really are: a bunch of liberal dope smoking LIARS!

Obama: More jobs in jobless benefits than Keystone


From the Washington Examiner:

President Obama said that he will delay his vacation and keep Congress in session until the passage of his desired payroll tax cut and unemployment benefits extension — two proposals that Obama said would create more jobs than the Keystone XL pipeline that his administration recently delayed.

“I would not ask anyone to do something I’m not willing to do myself,” Obama said when asked if he would go on vacation while keeping Congress in Washington D.C. “We are going to stay here as long as it takes [to get unemployment extended and pass the payroll tax cut].”

As Obama called for passage of those bills, he also responded to a recent Republican push to require him to approve the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline from Canada. “However many jobs might be generated by a Keystone pipeline,” he said, “they’re going to be a lot fewer than the jobs that are created by extending the payroll tax cut and extending unemployment insurance.”

Obama to reject Keystone Pipeland


Obama administration to reject Keystone pipeline

By Juliet Eilperin and Steven Mufson, Wednesday, January 18, 10:39 AM

The Obama administration will announce this afternoon it is rejecting a Canadian firm’s application for a permit to build and operate a massive oil pipeline across the U.S.-Canada border, according to sources who have been briefed on the matter.

However the administration will allow TransCanada to reapply after it develops an alternate route through the sensitive habitat of Nebraska’s Sandhills. Deputy Secretary of State William J. Burns will make the announcement, which comes in response to a congressionally-mandated deadline of Feb. 21 for action on the proposed Keystone pipeline.
