What is the F’n Fracking thing that is Pissing off Americans?

Fracking.

Ugh.

I hate the sound. (check it out here)

IF you live ANYWHERE near a fracking site, you know exactly what I’m talking about.

IN addition to the sounds there is a lovely (sarcastic) smell of a Sharpie Marker throughout the air that I breathe from time to time when the Fracking sites “burn off”.  It’s great.

My already sensitive lungs know it’s coming before I do.   I have a hard time breathing, my skin gets horribly filled with sores and then a few days later I either hear, feel or smell the fracking.

If you think Fracking has no effect on people, you’re an idiot and clearly do not live near a fracking site that popped up in your nice neighborhood out of nowhere.

I will move from the State of PA soon because I do not want to live in a wasteland anymore.

I used to love Penns Woods….but no more.

PA has allowed THE most intrusive thing I have ever witnessed in my life into the woods and residential areas of homeowners everywhere.

Everywhere I go in Western PA I am losing sleep due to drilling, smelling fumes, in traffic behind big rigs filled with dirt and debris or behind a huge water truck.  Even at my work, I hear sounds of trucks daily.

I am looking for a place with NO MARCELLUS Shale so I can live in peace once again because all of my efforts to speak with the gas companies and my efforts to tell the city where I live that they are breaking laws goes unheard.

Here’s how the Fracking Ninja Moves Work:

1. They come in unannounced to Residents. (The Townships know about it but they don’t tell you it’s happening)

2. They erect a giant rig during the day and at some point during the night.

3. They use EXTREMELY bright lights that go through shades in most homes (so residents have to buy new things to combat this).

4. They begin drilling as quickly as possible.

5. Homes shake. People Lose a LOT of sleep.

6. Eventually, People complain.

7. People are told that it won’t last long and that they “CAN NOT STOP” because it’s a part of the process.

8. Weeks go by and there are still complaints.

9. Finally the township says they will do a “sound test” by and independent contractor.

10. The sound test is done on the two nights of the week that the sound seems more reasonable.  Not gone…but at least you can sleep and your bed isn’t vibrating.

11. The tests come back and everything is ok!

12. You are still f’n awake because the sound picked back up again and the whole cycle of complaining and PLEADING for help starts again.

13.  REPEAT Steps 9 through 12.

 

It sounds unreal right?

 

It’s not.

 

100% Truth

 

Fracking Sucks the energy out of you one stupid fucking annoying phone call at a time.

The gas rep will say he is willing to meet with you and teach you about the process so you aren’t so scared.  He keeps putting you off and then finally…after weeks of lost sleep, they stop and he leaves never once looking your way and just giving you bullshit to keep you at bay.

Lawyers are knowledgeable and unsure because the problem is so new.

How in the world is this allowed to happen?

 

News casters show initial interest and then they disappear.  Interestingly enough…the news channel now shows a lot of positive natural gas company propaganda that happens to be the same company drilling near your home.

SHAME on you gas companies.

You can fix these problems and still help America grow but you choose to just bully the residents and lower their property values while you collect BIG CASH DOLLARS while the rest of the “little guys” lose.  You want to come in as fast and cheap as possible and don’t give a crap about who suffers through your money making activities.

 

We lose good air, quiet back yards, fresh smelling air, non vibrating homes, loss of property value and so much more…..including sleep and eventually our sanity because of your ignorance and pure neglect to our needs.

 

GAS companies…if you were American…you would help the displaced Americans that you cause by your completely irresponsible Fracking Practices.

In the State of PA alone, there are over 3,000 violations of your own rules. I shudder to think of how many of the actual rules of the clean air and fresh water act you affect.  I, for one, know that my air is different. My lungs and my skin tell me so….and you just turn a cold shoulder.

 

SHAME ON YOU!
