We're fighting a FRACKING nightmare in mid-NY and PA. The Susquahana is in jeaphardy. And now they're going for the Hudson and Deleware watersheds too.

Just like in Starhawks 5 Sacred Thing... the fake Christians money pigs are getting everyone killed.

Ah so the Hunger games becomes a reality one day. I can see it now every year each region sends its best to compete in a life or death competition. Oh but the twist is they will have bombs strapped to their necks and so will have to keep moving and have to make a kill in timely manner to stay alive. A kill every 2 hours id say. No rest or breaks allowed constant moving or the bomb goes off. I do not see how they got away with basically using Battle royale source material in such a way. I wonder if the top 1 percenters would like that kind of thing?

All power to the people!

Classic, I have two wells and a 3 acre pond on my land. I own 140 acres - which ought to rile your leftist feathers since it's more than I need. And yes I own them title and deed - I have no loans. You have no right to my water.

The wells cost me money to maintain and operate - good luck striking your claim to water from it. I suggest you bring something to trade or lots of guns. I run my business from these wells - I run a herd of dairy cows and goats. I am horrible business owner. Do the milk my cows produce belong to the people too? Did they pay 2.5k each for the starter herd? Do they milk them twice a day 365 days a year?

Resources are not divided equally the people who develop/mange them take risk - risk equal reward plain and simple. It’s all easy to sit there and say "all your base are belong to us" if you don't actually have anything. I would wager people who advocate the common ownership nonsense own little or nothing themselves.

They want something for nothing - take no risk, do no work, reap the rewards.

Power to the people indeed. BS make your own way.

Here in Sydney, our politicians went boots and all into building a desalination plant (vdesal). It is being put into a hybernation mode now, as our dam Warragamba (aborigine for place of little rain) is over flowing, well beyond capacity. Just a thought.
