I hate this fracking commercial

Yes I do

Oh gag me! The golden home lighting, the half circle flag bunting, the American flag, businesses "open", and some fatherly figure & geologist speaking about how thanks to technology, we can extract Natural gas, it's just right under our feet.

Safely unlock natural gas trapped in rock thousands of feet below us!
Safely unlock this clean & very natural gas
providing energy security
AND economic growth all across this country.
It's all about "discovery" folks.

Yea well, I discovered Dick Cheney made it so that the chemicals used for fracking are proprietary & therefore do not need to be disclosed.
Wonder why they did not put THIS footage in their commercial??

Jeez. There's a commercial that lists all the things that natural gas helps us do and then the ad finishes with the line "and we'll get up tomorrow and do it all over again."

Sure, for a profit, the environment and people negatively affected be damned.

Plus, the steak they show isn't a cube steak like they claim it is. Irritating.

Yep ~ All so wholesome & energy indepedence-y, with a hefty serving of Americana.

Sure we can get onboard with the Dick Cheney brainchild... who needs drinking water, and or safe & clean drinking water. What matters is Halliburton runs a strong profit margin. They are sooooo trustworthy. Not!
