      Wow, V…it's unbelievable! When I drove in to Rifle this morning, all the oil and gas facilities were gone.

      All the, hundreds of wells and countless valve stations and tank batteries. All the ratty buildings and storage yards…the huge noisy compressors …all the the dirty white pick up trucks, the fracking rigs and hundreds of water trucks…disappeared. Amazing.

      One of the last stragglers, a parafin cutter from Oklahoma, told me the fear of HB181 caused 'em to high tail it. He flipped me off and yelled "Stalinist" as he got in his truck.

      …  just kidding…😉

        Our plot worked!  The industry has all moved to Morgan County, where friendly local governments will silence the NIMBYs.

        Ain't one-party rule great?

          Sure is….

          Now about those re-education camps….

          Our first one is entitled, "Learn to love Socialism by Building a Lean-to." Camping spots are limited so register today by calling the AOC/Sanders-Warren Indoctrination center. But, don't bring your kids…we will take them away from you and send them to Arkansas.

    Structural racism, it seems, even effects who we try to poison.

    Study Finds Racial Gap Between Who Causes Air Pollution And Who Breathes It

    After accounting for population size differences, whites experience about 17 percent less air pollution than they produce, through consumption, while blacks and Hispanics bear 56 and 63 percent more air pollution, respectively, than they cause by their consumption, according to the study.

    I am, honestly, not surprised. 

    Society treats those "without" very poorly. Wealthy people can afford to live in the calm, clean, peaceful, security of places like Carmel, Indiana or Frisco, Texas.

    Poor people live where they can survive, and they have few, if any, options. The cheapest housing is always in the awfullest places.

    Nope…not surprised.

      Housing for workers often is close to the job site, too — and corporate offices of extraction companies are NOT next to the wells, mines, refineries, pumping stations, generators or transmission lines. .
