Sadly, all it takes is one person to object and the entire country needs to change. Before we ditch our Christian roots, we need to learn from what is happening in European countries.

What this poor child had to endure was horrific. My heart goes out to the victim and his family. Praying for justice to be served.
I realize that it is in the public's best interest to know that there are incidents that we should be aware. But in the future, I deplore Vindy to be sensitive in their reporting. This was a very young victim whose name may not have been printed, but with all the other details including his mother's name, it is yet another trauma to have to deal with.

Here is the funny science quote from Walter http://www.vindy.com/news/2013/sep/07... (comment #69)
" Let me explain this to you simply: there is insufficient energy coming to the earth daily to provide adequate power for mankind's energy requirements plus growing crops. Once you capture the energy from the sun, plant life will die. Thus, we use stored energy in fossil fuels, or petroleum, which could be abiotic, or geothermal. But, this whole "green" energy sham is only possible on large scales with government tax credits or the threat of additional taxes because of some company's bogus "carbon footprint".
And yet another funny... (comment #72)
"If I put solar panels on my roof, I can generate electricity. If my neighbor erects panels larger and higher than mine, will I generate electricity in the shade?

oh13voter: The hypocrisy of your comparison is that this article states for one thing that "Wealthy foundations fighting oil and gas extraction around the country have incorporated ostensibly dispassionate news outlets into their grant-making portfolios, creating what some describe as a self-sustaining environmentalist echo chamber."
"The Park Corp has granted nearly $40 million to environmentalist groups since its creation."
"Political observers see Park as a major force in the fracking debate, especially at the state level."
Now let's compare that to the oil/gas industry money being spent and where they are putting their money. http://thinkprogress.org/climate/2012...
Oh, and also interesting to note: Oil and gas companies are funding research at major universities to counter environmental objections to shale gas drilling. - See more at: http://www.dcbureau.org/201302218310/...

13: I have to laugh! You are so predictable!

oh13voter: The study was found to be bogus you say? “Our findings are far from representing a causal effect,” says McKenzie
Remember another famous industry's in our history and their push to sell their product? Tips from the tobacco industry playbook:

13 has been sniffing fracking fluid tonight.

Aw 13, did I hit a nerve? Remember, when you point a finger, 3 others are pointing back at you.
13 loves to call everyone liberal and say sources are from leftist websitea, lack of intelligence, yada yada yada, but he derives all of his info from the industry propaganda websites to misquote articles.
The fact is that this article was quoted in yale.edu, medicaldaly.com, kidshealth.org, nh.gov, sanfordhealth.org, akronchildrens.org, epa.gov, dph.georgia.gov... should I keep going to list 77,000 or more sites? Which of these are the leftist websites you claim?
It is a known fact that exposure to toxic chemicals cases birth defects and whenever you see a rise in incidence, especially 30% it is definitely a red flag.

oh13voter: come up with a safer way to extract the gas and we'll all live happily ever after.
