What could be a more authentic way to celebrate Thanksgiving in America than rich white people trying to take land and resources away from Native American tribes?

It’s practically a reenactment going on in North Dakota. Although instead of small pox infested blankets, the weapons of choice are water cannons, rubber bullets, and concussion grenades.

What is going on in North Dakota in the bigger picture is truly a teachable moment for those paying attention. It teaches all of us who is in charge of America. It teaches all of us what American values actually are. It shows us and the world the true colors of America.

American history is literally impossible to tell without telling the story of genocide against the indigenous population that preceded the Europeans who settled here. I guess that’s not fair to say. To be fair it was more a cycle of forced evacuation, genocide, reparation, reneging, repeat.

The more things change, the more they stay the same. Don’t let the virtual reality, rise of kale and loot crate economy fool you. The world is more or less the same for more people as it was decades ago. That point can be disputed but what can’t be is who is in charge in America. The election of Donald Trump was an emphatic reminder of that.

The old, rich, white men who posses the resources and finances are who controls America regardless of who is in the Oval Office.

Want to guess the demographic of the person in charge of the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL)?

One might think the outgoing, minority President, who understands a thing or two about discrimination might be speaking out about the DAPL. One might think the recent loser of the presidential election might be making noise to further endear her to minority groups feeling scared, threatened, and cheated by her loss. One might think any prominent member of the Democratic party might be speaking out about the treatment of the DAPL protesters, given that the party has been tagged with being only working for the economic elitists, who are neutral on social issues. One would be wrong, total media silence.

Double emphasis on media silence as the media has been too busy talking about glutenous eating, shopping, travel, and the recent election to inform the masses of what is happening at Standing Rock.

I’ll give you one guess to figure out who the most prominent politician who is talking about the Dakota Access Pipeline. You only need one guess, though if you voted for Clinton, you probably don’t want to know who it is.

Any public school student in America from the last half century knows how much the Native American people have had taken from them…repeatedly. What is left to take?

Who gives a shit about North Dakota? Exactly, that’s why we gave land to them there. Can we not let the people who we have taken everything and then some from, have some land that we don’t want? North Dakota doesn’t even qualify as a flyover state and all of a sudden this real estate is too valuable to continue abiding by the law of the land that federal treaty protected?

Something stinks and if the ETP has its way that stench will be oil polluted drinking water.

300 earthquakes and no drinkable water for 300,000 people.

That is what the energy and chemical industries are doing to our planet and doing to us. I guess we should say thank you sirs may we have another, since we know more is coming. There will be more poisoned water, more earthquakes, more destruction of wildlife, more spills, all for…what exactly? And for whom?

Even the democratic party has embraced fracking for the sake of being elected.

At this rate all of America will become Frackishima. I sure hope I get to turn into the Toxic Avenger rather than just die from tumors and cancers thanks to all the contaminated fresh water. Fingers crossed…

Are there people who don’t know that humans can’t survive without drinkable water? No matter how much money a person may have, they will die without drinkable water just as quickly as a person living in poverty. Fracking poisons our drinkable water and it was recently revealed fracking is poisoning even more water than originally thought or reported.

In addition to that horrendous fact, it has come to light that the federal government has failed to even inspect fracking sites and equipment in high risk contamination sites.

Neither economic booms to local economies or job creation are worth the poisoning of the essence of life. No one person’s ability to provide for their family is as important or more important to the greater population of their race if their job threatens the ability for the species to survive. Fracking companies at large and fracking workers individually should be ashamed of themselves and should be publicly shamed for what they are doing. We are talking about possibilites or probabilites of what may or may not, can or can not happen. Fracking IS poisoning our drinking water, the real world, in real-time, in the present.

Did oil and gas companies get tired of poisoning water with oil spills for 25 years?

The negatives of fracking are different from other environment movement. It’s not like clean energy or climate change debates. The negative effects of fracking are happening now! If we poison the fresh water supplies, we’ll all be dead before the sea levels can rise 10 feet due to polar ice cap melting. The ramifications of fracking won’t be felt in 20 years or in a century. They are being felt now. Fracking must be banned now. Otherwise clean water becomes the new oil. The main difference being a person won’t die in three or four days without gas to put in their car.
