In Sacramento, enslaved human beings "property" as legally defined in the US Constitution and later shared in the Dred Scott Supreme Court decision were auctioned.

Natural Gas Supply Outpacing Demand Growth - Ban Exports of LNG - by Tomas DiFiore
How can the US “high-volume high pressure” production of (fracked) LNG be the cheapest on the global market? Maybe it's because the water is free. The sand is free. Ban fracking sand mining now! Sand mining for purposes of fracking will likely become a controversial issue this Legislative session (2013) And the 'fracking fluid' is probably leftover industrial waste, a liability turned to asset. It's the Tao Of The Corporate Way. We Oppose Unless They Disclose (Monterey slogan)

Obama’s policy was based on the original sin of allowing the pharmaceutical companies off the hook. He then followed this up by pledging public funds to subsidize junk healthcare plans, coercing Americans into purchasing these plans and silencing the voices of single-payer healthcare advocates. Obamacare is not healthcare reform; it is just another corporate giveaway by the Obama administration.
