"You want the truth? You can’t handle the truth! We live in a world that needs clean natural gas, and gas wells have to be frac’d by men with rigs and pumps. Who’s gonna do it? Microsoft? Apple? The energy industry has greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. You weep for your i-phone app, and you curse the frac crews. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what we know. That fossil energy fuels economic growth. And the existence of frac’ing, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, powers our economy. You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about on Facebook, you want them on that frac, you need them on that frac. We use words like pressure, proppant, conductivity. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent producing gas. You use them as a punchline. We have neither the time nor the inclination to explain ourselves to someone who takes a hot shower every morning using the natural gas that we provide, and then questions the manner in which we provide it. We would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way, Otherwise, we suggest you pick up a pipe wrench, and meet us on location. We have wells to frac!" -- Unknown Author

jffreel, I don't get it when people on here are anti energy either! J. Michael Landry I liked our post too. Thanks for pointing all that out.
And thanks for posting this Josh. I think a lot of us who do happen to be on the mail box end appreciate very much the hard working end of the industry. They have so much to be proud of in their difficult line of work. So no, I would never get grumpy by what you posted. It was a good and funny at the same time. :)

Logger, I deleted post that were bringing the mood down. There's nothing to disagree with. This is for fun, and if the spirit of the reply was not that then I removed it. It's that simple.
Oliver, as I said I have no idea where this came from. I would love to give credit where credit is due, but I don't KNOW where that is. By providing a potential souce you have now contributed to this discussion, rather than admonishing the origionator of the post for not doing so himself. Of course everyone is entitled to their own opinions, I absolutely agree. Should we allow someone who believes cake and ice cream is fattening to lecture children at a birthday party for eating it? Simply put, No.

You deleted my post that simply asked that you cite the person who wrote this. (Dave Pursell of Tudor Pickering Holt & Co.). Or at the very least, put it in quotations. I wasn't being negative about the post at all, I'd just like to see credit given to the person who actually wrote this.

As for being negative, I think people reading this should be entitled to their own opinions, focused on whatever part of the quote they like.

As for me - I agree this is a very well written, timely spoof on a great movie.

Really ses, get over yourself. I am having a tremendous amount of difficulty understanding why people are making this a serious post and not a spoof of a very well known scene (or so I thought) in a popular movie. Please take it for what it is, and not make it into something it's not. This is not a political statement. This is not a post to stimulate or provoke a pro/anti-stimulation discussion. It is intended for entertainment purposes only. If this notion of entertainment is beyond your level of comprehension please refrain from commenting.

"Sounds like the rumor that exposure to frac fluids causes increased aggression may have just gotten some added support. "

Hey that's a new one for me. Never heard that frac caused aggression. Might be tough to prove seeing how there is no ONE frac formula.
I think what is causing aggression is the age-old problem of TESTOSTERONE!

Go get 'em, Tiger!

I don't think everyone who reads it will immediately recall "A Few Good Men" at first but it's a great take off on the best line in the movie.
