Bill Cosby: Natural gas pipeline
disrespects ‘flora and fauna’

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/12/2014 12:11:28 PM

BOSTON — Comedian Bill Cosby and his wife Camille are supporting protesters marching across Massachusetts in opposition to Kinder Morgan’s proposed natural gas pipeline. The couple, who own hundreds of acres of protected land in Shelburne Falls, about 100 miles west of Boston, have been opposed to the pipeline since the company notified them last winter of plans to survey their land. Through a spokesman, the couple said it was “astounding” that New England’s six governors support the proposal, which they said shows “disrespect for humans, flora and fauna.” Supporters of the $3.75 billion Northeast Pipeline Extension Project say it will provide

Once the pipeline is buried, it will never be disrespectful of the humans, flora, or fauna above the pipeline.

But there have been gas pipelines, illuminating gas and natural gas pipelines for over 150 years.

I´m in favor of the pipeline, but I understand why private landowners wouldn´t be happy. Kinder Morgan imposes a 25-foot easement on either side of the pipeline, so you lose a fair amount of ground. You can´t build on the easement, dig on it, or plant trees on it, so in effect you lose your property rights--but you continue to pay the property taxes on the easement. And banks can be difficult with mortgages and loans.

Multimillionaires and billionaires don´t give a hoot that pipelines save working families money. They´ll get theirs because they can afford it and who cares about anyone else.

They also don´t actually care about flora as their obstruction of pipelines keeps antiquated processes at the forefront of options. And lines the pockets of Warren Buffet and George Soros.

The article is lacks a great amount of information about the issue. If Cosby owns the land how can a private company come in and place a pipeline on that land? The article also implies the land has been designated a preserve.

I have no problem with natural gas pipelines BUT I have a problem with private companies staking claim or right of access to my property. The issue is not Cosby´s political belief. The issue is who controls what an individual owns. The individual, the greater good, the state, or corporations. I believe the individual controls their own property.

Control of the US Senate largely hinges on the outcome of election in 12 states. In half of these contests, the Democrat candidate is the scion of rich political legacies. In their own way, these contests will test the proposition that America is a land without an aristocracy. Obama´s "Dreams of My Father" may be less a memoir than a political blueprint. For many Democrat candidates this year, their last name is their greatest political asset. In Arkansas, Sen.

President Obama was given detailed and specific intelligence about the rise of the Islamic State as part of his daily briefing for at least a year before the group seized large swaths of territory over the summer, a former Pentagon official told Fox News. The official -- who asked not to be identified because the President´s Daily Brief is considered the most authoritative, classified intelligence community product analyzing sensitive international events for the president -- said the data was strong and "granular" in detail. The source said a policymaker "could not come away with any other impression: This is getting bad." Obama, unlike

In what could be ominous news for Democratic candidates in the November election, President Obama´s popularity in California has skidded to the lowest level of his presidency, according to a new Field Poll. The survey found that 45 percent of registered voters approved of the job Obama is doing, only a couple of ticks above the 43 percent who disapprove. That´s a solid drop from the 50 percent to 39 percent rating that the poll found in June. It´s also far below the 62 percent who believed Obama was doing a good job at the start of his second term in early

In remarks on the U.S. economy Monday, President Barack Obama said Congressional Republicans will eventually cave to public pressure to raise the federal minimum wage. Obama was speaking at the Laborfest festival hosted by the AFL-CIO in Milwaukee, Wis. “If I cared about these things, I’d also want more Democrats looking out for me,” he said. “I’m just saying. Because when the rest of the country is working to raise wages, but Republicans in Congress won’t, it ain’t right.” Noting the protests in recent months from fast food workers seeking higher wages, Obama said Republicans would open up to the

The hosts of Fox & Friends wondered Tuesday morning if President Barack Obama even read his intelligence briefing from last year about the growing threat of the Sunni militant group ISIS, or if he left it sitting on his desk and subsequently was uninformed about the danger that has now metastasized across Syria and northern Iraq. “I want to make sure he’s reading it,” said cohost Brian Kilmeade. “Because the president usually gets briefed, someone telling him from the CIA directly, like Michael Hayden, this is what’s going on.

A federal study to determine why 75 percent of lesbian women are obese and gay men are not has totaled nearly $3 million. The National Institutes of Health study is now in its fourth year, receiving an additional $670,567 for fiscal year 2014, for a total cost of $2.87 million, the Washington Free Beacon reported. Researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital have come to several conclusions since studying “the striking interplay of gender and sexual orientation in obesity disparities,” which is slated to last until 2016. They have determined that gay and bisexual males had a “greater desire for toned muscles” than straight men, lesbians have lower

Nude photos of Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence, as well as those purportedly showing other top Hollywood stars, were posted online in an apparent massive hacking leak. An anonymous hacker reportedly gained access to private photos on the Hunger Games actress’s mobile phone, and those of 100 others, via Apple’s online storage system iCloud. The 60-odd pictures of Lawrence in varying stages of undress were then posted on the bulletin board website 4chan. More than 100 A-list celebrities are alleged to have been targeted, including reality TV star Kim Kardashian, singer Rihanna, models Candice Swanepoel, Cara Delevingne and Kelly Brook, and

The FBI said late Monday that it was investigating leaked nude photos that targeted Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton. The agency told the Associated Press that it was addressing accusations that online accounts of celebrities, including Oscar-winner Lawrence, had been hacked, leading to the posting of their nude photographs online. In addition, Apple Inc. spokeswoman Natalie Kerris said the company was investigating whether any iCloud accounts were compromised, according to the AP. Representatives for supermodel-turned-actress Upton, 22, and Lawrence, 24, who plays heroine Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games movie franchise, issued statements about intimate pictures which first appeared on

Between 1970 and 1990, the population of Philadelphia shrank by a quarter, dropping from 1.95 to 1.59 million. Like many American cities, it seemed caught in a downward spiral. Since then – like many American cities – Philadelphia has stabilized. The population now appears to have bottomed out at the millennium, and has been regaining residents over the past decade. But as it rebounds, Philly is becoming a different kind of city. In the two most recent decades, which comprise the bounce of the city’s population curve, owner-occupied housing dropped even more steeply than in the ’70s and ’80s. Between 2000 and

WASHINGTON — The current Congress is on track to be the worst ever at passing laws since modern record-keeping began, with three of its lawmakers failing to introduce a single bill, The Post has learned. The divided House and Senate have managed to pass just 163 laws that garnered President Obama’s signature since the two-year term began in January 2013. At this rate, Congress will have no problem beating the previous record set during the 2011-2013 session in which 284 laws were passed. That was down from 385 laws passed in the 2009-2011 session.
