Folks, doesn’t matter if it’s anti-fracking, anti-pipeline, anti-sealing, anti-fur, anti-Israel, anti-nuke, or anti anything else, these assholes would have us freezing in the dark and eating nuts and berries ……………………. or sprouts!
And we all know what Yogi Bear said about that.
“Nuts and Berries, yuck!”
There was an article by Brian Lily in the Sun papers today, according to the Perspective naked News Department, and it hits the nail right on the head as far as those left wing tree huggers go!

The government of Nova Scotia announced this week that it prefers to be poor and live off the handouts of other provinces rather than attempt to stand on its own two feet.
On Wednesday the Liberal government in that province confirmed it will introduce legislation to ban onshore hydraulic fracturing.
“Nova Scotians have overwhelmingly expressed concern about allowing high volume hydraulic fracturing to be a part of onshore shale development in this province at this time,” Energy Minister Andrew Younger said in a news release.
Younger didn’t allude to science in his statement explaining the decision; he spoke of “concern” expressed by citizens meaning this was the decision of a government scared of angry activists.
Fracking is big business for the activist community and environmental groups have spent millions attempting to shut down what is a safe industry using practices that have been developed and refined over decades.

The big scary claim is that fracking will poison the water table.

Speaking before a House congressional committee in Washington, Lisa Jackson,a chemical engineer and a rack Obama’s hand-picked director of the Environmental Protection Agency, told lawmakers there is no proof of fracking contaminating water.
“I am not aware of any proven case where the fracking process itself affected water, although there are investigations ongoing,” Jackson said. That was in 2011; the next year she told the media the same thing in response to a question.
“In no case have we made a definitive determination that the fracking process has caused chemicals to enter groundwater,” Jackson told a reporter.
That hasn’t stopped the use of scare tactics to frighten people.

The announcement has been met with anger from some in the business world, putting Younger and company on the defensive.
“We’re not shutting down any kind of industry involving hydraulic fracturing in the province because there isn’t one at the moment,” Younger told QMI Agency.
Well, there may not be now, but that doesn’t mean there couldn’t have been one in the future. Younger’s move to ban fracking ensures the industry will stay out of Nova Scotia.
Next door in New Brunswick, fracking is an issue in the provincial election and it is likely that if the Liberals win they too will ban fracking. The two Atlantic provinces will be joining Quebec in deciding not to allow what is a safe and booming industry across the continent. In banning fracking, these provinces are not only giving up the royalties they would receive from allowing natural resources to be extracted, they are also giving up on the jobs and economic activity that come with these projects.
Meanwhile provinces that allow for resource extraction, such as British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan, are paying their way. Nova Scotia and New Brunswick will each receive $1.6 billion in equalization payments from the federal government this year, Quebec will receive $9.2 billion. Why on earth should they be subsidized while banning good jobs and revenue-generating projects?
The equalization program is supposed to be a hand up for provinces that need help providing similar services to better-off provinces. Like too many welfare programs it’s become a trap, one that sees governments say they’d rather their people not work so they can keep getting the welfare payments.
Time for a new rule — refuse work, you don’t get the welfare


After being married for 50 years, I took a careful look at my wife one day and said, “Fifty years ago we had a cheap house, a junk car, slept on a sofa bed and watched a 10-inch black and white TV, but I got to sleep every night with a hot 23-year-old girl.
Now … I have a $750,000 home, a $45,000 car, a nice big bed and a large screen TV, but I’m sleeping with a 73-year-old woman. It seems to me that you’re not holding up your side of things.”
My wife is a very reasonable woman. She told me to go out and find a hot 23-year-old girl and she would make sure that I would once again be living in a cheap house, driving a junk car, sleeping on a sofa bed and watching a 10-inch black and white TV.
Aren’t older women great? They really know how to solve an old guy’s problems!
