I'm bothered by President Obama's choice of words: 'shale-gas extraction'

not high volume hydraulic hydrofracking.

'Shale-gas extraction' is an oil/gas industry related term used to desensitize public opinion to the word hydrofracking...

4. Yep.. there is a lot I don't like

he sounds like a moderate republican.
I guess I won't find progressive policy in the Democratic Party. There are some great progressives in the party but I want a Progressive President.

I'm very disappointed by his foreign policy and military comments. He speaks untruths and that is the most disappointing

6. I didn't like that either

Fracking is another disaster of creating energy. We need more solar.

8. I'm thinking he pretty much shut them down with

his demand to know what chemicals they were pumping into the ground. They always refused to give that info saying it was perpriatory. (sp?) Anyway if he gets that into force, they'll shut it down.
