The silent taxpaying majority are speaking here, only the dependent class say no. until you offer them free gas.

Utica....Will you be trucking in safe drinking water after you drill like in other areas ruined by big gas and oil?

utica....You show up and claim you're here to "educate" the local hicks. I'm trying to get educated so I ask you a few questions and you get your panties in a bunch. You sit behind a keyboard with your doors locked and insult people with things you would never have the balls to say to their face. Contrary to your thinking, people from the valley are not stupid uneducated uninformed hicks.

Letstryagain....Here you are. The first video should answer your question and I included some related video's. Let me know if you need more....there are hundreds.

Cambridge, ha,ha,ha...balls? I'll meet you anytime you like on GoMarcellusshale.com where the big boys hang and the weak run home to mommy Vindy where they can hide behind the hipster movement and believe everything on TV Youtube. I accept your challenge, again go to this red blood American site and you will meet the professional producers of America, the taxpayers.......I'm waiting.

utica....weak is when you shoot your mouth off about "educating the locals" and when you are asked a simple question like "why are oil and gas exempt from Clean Water and Clean Air" acts or will you be providing clean water for people whose source has been contaminated" you get all bent out of shape.

I know you want me to ignore the hundreds of videos and articles showing pollution and believe you, a shill for the drillers. There isn't any point in me going to any other site to ask you the same questions when all I'm going to get are the same answers. I'll just stay right here and call BS anytime I want.

Those that oppose drilling are against progress and economic prosperity for this region. Last week was the anniversary of the steel demise - Black Monday. It's taken over 30 years, but there's finally hope of a new industrial base. Laws are in place to ensure the safety of the citizens. So long as the city is getting market rates for its land, they have a duty to the city's citizens to drill and raise capital. Cowering to the few, but vocal so called 'anti-frackers' would only prove that our elected officials are incapable of leading with strength and conviction.

Leasing our land is a terrible idea. You think small earthquakes are bad? People were up in arms months ago about a 4.0 that lasted literally 2 seconds. And where will they want to drill? There is no viable source of "public" land other than our beloved Mill Creek Park. Let me pose a few questions: What happens when the gas and oil are sucked dry? What do we do then? Who is going to get the revenue from leasing the land? What will that money go to? What if there are more earthquakes?

You know what our city and what our economy really needs? The manufacturing facilities in China where Apple/Microsoft/HP products are made that employ 1.2 MILLION people.. That's 1,200,000 people or almost 20 times the population of Youngstown.

Stop fighting this battle and get more involved with real change that will last for generations.

You people only think of MONEY, which in the end, you don't end up seeing a nickle from it.
