Anti-fracking charter amendment soundly defeated in Youngstown

No one has yet commented on the article's statement of fact: "The state legislature approved laws 9 years ago to take over control of gas and oil drilling from local governments." Who wrote the legislation 9 years ago for the state legislators? Could it have been the ALEC legislation mill and corporate hand maiden?

Citizens of Youngstown, smelly hippies with green teeth are not the problem. The problem is vulture capitalists who throw us a bone in the way of a few jobs and then pollute our water and poison our soil while having already removed the legal possibility of us doing anything about it.
