Thanks.

Wink Collbran, CO landslide and fracking?

There has been mention—by me—of the possibility of fracking being involved with the landslide and subsequent disaster near Collbran, CO. That on another thread having specifically to do with this landslide.

It is otherwise not mentioned here as no proof at this point that fracking had anything to do with this landslide. If possibly so. Speculation, certain proofs, and a video presenting same can be had from Post #16 of that thread, here:

Wink Oil end run around voters

You may have heard that some of our politicians, led by Governor Hickenlooper, have come up with a 'compromise' solution in regard fracking, one that bestows certain safeguards and benefits to Coloradoans so concerned.

Fine as far as it goes. But what this—and the vast amount of oil industry advertising one may have noticed on television and elsewhere—is principally aimed at is doing an end run around and preventing serious voter initiatives come November.

Moreover, and especially, for any benefits of this deal all are in effect superseded by one huge, and quite purposeful (if little advertised) negative. Being that this legislation would prevent communities from outright banning fracking in their neighborhoods. Some ability to regulate same, yes, but then no way to keep it out if so desiring. This in direct contravention of the expressed wishes, and votes, of the citizens of such as Broomfield, Longmont, Fort Collins, etc.

Some further information on this can be had here:

I heard a recent interview with our beloved governor on Colorado Public Radio, and he said he was going to do his best to keep voter initiatives off the ballot in November, and that everybody should just go back home to their farm or ranch because everything was going to be just fine. Fine for the energy outfits, I guess; not quite so fine for the rest of us.

not really any different than George Bush telling us to go about our lives and go shopping, after 9-11.

voter referendums iare usually ill-advised and little more than mob rule, for example, if we put items on the ballot in some states to bring back the jim crow laws I'm sure a few states would pass them, i.e., tyranny of the majority regardless of constitutionality.
