Did you read that great story yesterday on how taxpayers are helping the gas industry? I bet the industry is laughing at you all.

Yes I read it rick and the first thing I thought of was how some people on here said that the gas industry does not use any taxpayer monies, well I guess they were WRONG.

If our leaders had any willingness or ability to think beyond the next election cycle we would be building sustainable energy sources with this money.

All this gas money for water infrastructure improvement... yet water rates continue to climb. My monthly water bill is what most residents in Williamsport pay quarter. The last rate increase in Montgomery was due to old and aging water pipes. The water and waste industry is out of control. I think all of them need an audit and wasteful spending needs cut.

Natural gas development benefits our county, state,local gov't and local citizens, you just can't deny that no matter what your feelings are about the gas and oil industry.

Leaning right, ummmm, I sure can deny it. It is destroying our environment, ripping apart communities, pitting neighbor against neighbor, poisoning the water, poisoning the air, destroying our core forests, bring drugs and violence into our schools and neighborhoods, taxing our police forces, ruining our roads, endangering our lives (have you seen how these people drive?????). Should I go on??

Mismac-They work under very stingent rules and regulations and put things back to a condition better than they found them usually. How do they rip apart communities? If they were poisening the water and air they would be in big trouble, Do you drive? if yes, you pollute the air too. Our roads are in better shape now because of them, are you kidding me, Sounds like you have an axe to grind, whats the matter, aren't you making any money off of them Mismac? Sounds like you are a sour grape. Please go on.......Im waiting.

"I have a conscience."- Mismac

So do i, so what is it your trying to say here? You insinuate that i dont, Had you left that out of your comment, i would not have responded. You can post whatever you want, but it doesn't mean everybody is going to agree with you, I am glad i dont know you so that i have to have all of your negativism around me.
