Frack Nation trailer: “I’m armed, I’ll tell you that”

posted at 11:35 am on January 14, 2013 by

You’ve either seen or passed on Promised Land, the UAE-funded Hollywood argument against fracking.  Now coming up — Frack Nation, the documentary from Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinny that shows the nature of the debate over American natural-gas production.  And from this trailer, it looks pretty darned lively indeed:

I’ll be reviewing Frack Nation next weekend ahead of its January 22nd release date.  Stay tuned!

I love seeing hippie tolerance in action.

It would be endlessly entertaining if we could get unions involved in fracking. Then the union goons and the professional anarchist protesters could have a cage match.

@TexasDan – aren’t the crews who do fracking work unionized?

I don’t know, but it struck me as work that would.

Not here in Texas. Don’t know about Pennsylvania. But the people who make the steel pipe to case the wells sure as heck are unionized. And the pipefitter’s union that lays gas pipelines is, too. The unions were pissed about the Keystone pipeline getting shut down, but the union leadership seems to have tamped that down. Politics takes precedence.

Personally, I love seeing it quenched. Preferably by law enforcement preferably to the tune of “All Right That Does It, Open Fire!”.

Unfortunately the last time that happened was at Kent State. It’s been far too long since liberals’ (bad) ideas and (wretched) behavior have resulted in appropriate consequences, and we’re living with the results. And the next time it happens we will not be at all assured of coming out the victors.

My stepdad was union pipeline welder for 50 years. His union was out of Tulsa, Okla. but he lived in West Virginia. There are oil and gas workers that have a union and I’d imagine that the shops that make pipeline up north are union too.

I’d read his union newsletter (until I got nauseous) and it was the standard Democrat/Marxist BS. Yet, they couldn’t see that the Dems had long ago thrown them under the bus for the enviro cash. They vote for the party that will destroy their industries.

What’s even stranger is that he only worked 7-8 months because of weather. He started buying rental property and working on them to keep busy in his off months. He ran his finances like a conservative, yet spouted the union line.

One morning we were drinking coffee and he was reading the paper. He started in with “Those bosses don’t want to pay a prevailing wage, blah, blah…” It was 7:30 and he had a kid cutting weeds on the hillside. I pointed at the kid and asked, “So you paying him union scale and benefits?”

He gave me “the look” and we didn’t talk politics early in the morning any more.
