quickie time missouri

Today's Missouri Quickie:

Via the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:

Missouri Republican Party Executive Director Matt Wills denounced voter registration efforts amid continued protests in Ferguson, calling it "disgusting."

"If that’s not fanning the political flames, I don’t know what is," Wills told Breitbart News, a conservative website, Monday.

He also called the actions "completely inappropriate."

These blah people clearly don't know their place, right Patriot Matt? How dare they legally and rationally try to use their voices in more ways than one!

That was today's Quickie. Was it good for you?

BREAKING: Rick Perry indicted on two felonies

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

OopsPerryw300h202

Why, it was only a few months ago that I posted Rick Perry lawyers up for criminal investigation of bribery, coercion, abuse of authority (VIDEO). Follow that link for the back story.

Now there's this, via the Dallas News:

AUSTIN – Gov. Rick Perry was indicted on two felony counts for abuse of official capacity and coercion of a public servant late Friday by a Travis County grand jury.

The case stems from Perry’s vetoing the $7.5 million biennial funding for the Travis County Public Integrity Unit last year. He threatened to withhold the money unless District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg resigned.

More at the link.

What's his defense going to be? "I can't recall"? "God made me do it"?

Watchdog: Energy companies use diesel in fracking without permits

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

what the frack sign Via The Tyee.ca

watchdog

What the frack? Via the Los Angeles Times, Diesel is used in fracking without permits, report says:

Energy companies have used thousands of gallons of diesel to frack for oil and gas without obtaining the necessary permits required under federal law, according to a new report by the Environmental Integrity Project.

The watchdog group's review of industry and federal data from 2010 to 2014, released Wednesday, found 351 wells in 12 states that used diesel in fracking. [...] The EPA said it was reviewing the integrity project's report.

Oh em gee, the GOP is right! It's all so clear now. What we need is less oversight.

Quickie: Surprise! Fracking a risk to drinking water, per research

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

quickie15 better sizeToday's Quickie:

Via the Los Angeles Times, a study of fracking in Wyoming came up with this:

Energy companies are fracking for oil and gas at far shallower depths than widely believed, sometimes through underground sources of drinking water, according to research released Tuesday by Stanford University scientists. [...]

[T]hey point out that there is no way of knowing the effects of fracking into groundwater resources because regulators have not assessed the scope and impact of the activity.

Mmm, mmm, mmmm! What better to quench a health enthusiast's thirst after a strenuous workout than a nice, big, refreshing glass of carcinogens and neurotoxins ?

That was today's Quickie. Will you still respect me in the morning?
