Re: “Reed: state should compensate landowners because of fracking decision

This is the voice of sheer desperation. Mr. Reed has argued loudly for state's rights in this matter--until the state banned fracking. This to me rhymes with the logic of trade agreements like TPP that are now being negotiated in secret and would give corporations rights equal to sovereign nations, including the right to sue for potential lost profits caused by democratic laws, especially environmental laws. Corporations are very close to insisting that we owe them a living--and juicy profit margins. Mr. Reed's posturing reduces that argument to absurdity. But just because they're absurd doesn't mean that these ideas aren't powerful and in motion as we speak.
