Totally Fracked

If you're not familiar with "fracking," which basically is a cutesy way of referring to the hydraulic fracturing of the earth in an effort to mine for natural gas, you should be -- at least a little.

Basically, as this entertaining ditty explains, it's not that this process is being allowed to occur -- as usual, it's about the lack of regulation to keep it at least somewhat in check.

Because, you know, Randian free-enterprise, government intervention is bad, Going Galt, "No socialism!" and all that happy horseshit.
