Yoko Sets Her Sights
on Breaking Up Fracking

Washington Free Beacon, by C.J. Ciaramella

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 12/12/2012 5:43:55 AM

Yoko Ono and Sean Lennon took out a full-page ad in the New York Times Monday to protest natural gas fracking in New York state. “Governor Cuomo: Imagine there’s no fracking …” the ad states and urges New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to “give clean energy a chance.” Ono and Lennon are part of “Artists Against Fracking,” a loose coalition of celebrities united in their opposition to hydraulic fracturing, a process by which natural gas is extracted from the earth. Other artists in the anti-fracking group include Grumpy Old Men actress Daryl Hannah and transcendentalist fraudster Deepak Chopra.

Imagine that John Lennon was still alive and was supportive of breaking up fracking.

I still wouldn´t care about it.

Celebrities, is there anything that they don´t know?

The price of energy means NOTHING to a wealthy person. It is pocket change to them. But a family struggling to get by has a different outlook, especially when they are cold and want to turn up the heat.

Yoko leads a lynch mob!

Lisa Jackson, the Obama apointed head of the EPA says there is "No Evidence" that fracking causes environmental damage.

If you still want to condemn it with NO EVIDENCE, you are leading a lynch mob.

The truth is that the Russians hava a lot of gas to sell, and they don´t want you to have cheap gas to effect their market.

No, 8 understands. Anti-fracking prop is often funded by people like Putin and the Arab Emirates. They are trying to keep the price up.

On a related subject, what with Obama crashing the economy, each week more and more drilling rigs are being taken out of service. Each rig employs dozens of people who suddenly find themselves out of work.

7 natural gas rigs were stacked this past week. That is like 500 rig workers and who knows how many ancillary workers suddenly with no paycheck next month.

Does Yoko know or care? Ha.

I´m with #´s 4, 6, 7, 10 and 11.

Imagine no gas, oil, electricity, electricity to pump the water, no lights, computer Internet connections, flying, going anywhere, freezing and starving to death, etc. In other words no energy.

Where in the world do "liberals" and "progressives" think progress, life and survival comes from.

No energy, no life, we´re all a bunch of cave or mud hut dwelling sub humans. Back to the stone age.

Those of us who lived through the Beatles phenomenon will always be puzzled by the John Lennon/Yoko Ono conundrum. He announced to the world that he had found the most beautiful, brilliant, and talented woman in the history of mankind to be his soul mate and then he introduced Yoko. It was amusing to watch people struggle to "see" what he saw in her. I always privately thought that she was thoroughly unimpressed with him and let him know it, in other words, she was the first woman who told him to sit down and shut up and it gobsmacked him.

1889: What the White House
Easter Egg Roll Looked Like

President Benjamin Harrison had a crisis. A child had let go of a balloon in the White House, during the Easter Egg roll on April 22, 1889. And we all know how hard it can be to get a balloon down from the corner of a ceiling, lest deal with the child suddenly stripped of a most prized and buoyant plaything. The guests noticed. "Here it remained during the afternoon, and was subject of universal comment as to the best means to be resorted to in order to get it down again," a Washington Post reporter wrote of the day´s

Washington -- When the Bureau of Land Management retreated from a standoff with Cliven Bundy, a few hundred people traveled to his Nevada ranch to protest what they see as an overreach of the federal government. (Snip)Because of the cheap rent, some, including fellow cattlemen who don´t ranch on public lands, call public land ranchers "welfare ranchers" and have no sympathy for the Western lot. But Griggs said they don´t understand that ranching public land is "not a bargain." "On public lands, you might get kicked off at any moment for a turtle. That´s kind of the deal," he said.

President Obama is right. He told Major Garrett of CBS this week that “Mr. Putin’s decisions aren’t just bad for Ukraine. Over the long term, they’re going to be bad for Russia.” I believe that Putin’s adventures in Russia’s “near abroad” are a mistake. Indeed, they are part of a whole tapestry of wrongheadedness. It’s also bad for the Kremlin to crush dissent, censor the news, and hobble the economy by handing it over to oligarchs and a kleptocratic bureaucracy. Putin’s scapegoating and demonizing of gays isn’t only morally wrong, it’s not in Russia’s long-term interests either. That Putin prefers to

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O.

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy.

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics.
