One person doesn’t speak for everyone
These comments are in response to Rosa Hance’s letter (Join co-sponsors to support fracking ban in Md.) Maryland Independent March 22.
It is truly remarkable how many people presume to speak for everyone when they express their personal views. Ms. Hance is a shining example. In her last sentence she states to Sen. Thomas “Mac” Middleton and I quote “You (sic) constituents are at your side; Charles County has spoken to support the ban.”
I will state without hesitation that Rosa Hance cannot claim this support of all of Charles County. There are plenty of us that do not agree with every green effort to shut down the U.S. economy by opposing any use of energy unless it comes from solar, wind or water. Ms. Hance should examine how much energy we use as opposed to how much we get from these green sources and give us a reasonable source of how we will bridge the gap until green sources will supply 100 percent of our needs. Those of us on the side of utilizing natural gas until that time comes will be more impressed by the utterances of greenies when they give up all the products that are produced using natural gas as an ingredient or as a source of power to make the products. Until that time I am going to write them off as hypocrites who presume to speak for all of us.
