    Despite the silly personal attacks, you are wrong, they are targeting fracking.

    As I said, some cracked wells, not fracking itself. Even the Duke researchers say so.

    I like Battlestar Galactica's version of frakking better.

    Just like businesses aren't allowed to dump their waste in rivers, these fracking companies shouldn't be allowed to contaminate your or anyone else's water supply.

    It is a proper use of government authority.

    If someone was contaminating my water, I'd prefer to deal with it myself than be forced to pay some bad actors to do what's in their best interest, including keeping me from mine.

    In fact, the government already contaminates my water, purposefully.

    Further, your assumed premise that government "authority" is legitimate is demonstrably false. You conceded yourself that you couldn't explain it, yet you persist with your rote malformed opinions.
