Drinking water comes from wells under 1000 feet down Fracking oil and gas wells are 5k feet deep or more where water is not normally found. Yeah if they don't do a good job sealing the wells you can get seepage. Most are done correctly.

Comment I LMFAO at utilitys (Score 2) 280

I built a house 1 mile away from the overhead power lines. They told me it would cost me 60K USD to run power to my house. FUCK THAT. I installed 6KW of solar panels a nice inverter a decent battery bank and a 30kw diesel genset for 20k. These leaches need to die a horrible death.

Its way cheaper to just add more panels. At 39 cents per watt plus mounting costs it makes no sense unless you do not have the room to mount all the panels you need. I run my electronics lab and whole house on solar and it works well. 7KW of panels is plenty for most people that have a normal home. After that the other factor is power storage. Buy Edison batteries for a lifetime of storage.

Sony, yet another large company, but they aren't spending the waves of cash they obtain on their customers' PSN service. End the greed."

The US of A has NEVER been a Democracy, Our founding fathers knew that a Democracy was not the way to do proper government and framed what we are today called a Constitutional Republic. What we have now is a twisted mess of a government that is controlled by the money not the people that it was intended to be controlled by.
