"We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.” - Elie Weisel

“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor." - Desmond Tutu

"There comes a time when neutrality and laying low become dishonorable. If you’re not in revolt, you’re in cahoots. When this period and your name are mentioned, decades hence, your grandkids will look away in shame." - David Brooks

    Yep. Invenergy’s claim that Burrillville’s request for data on water sources beyond what is known today is “irrelevant” is, as Jerry Elmer points out, silly. It’s also lazy as well as disingenuous. But that’s how Invenergy rolls. Apparently someone told them when all this started that people up in the rural NW corner of Little Rhody didn’t have the capacity or the appetite for a fight. They continue to tenaciously hold on to that bone of arrogance. Pack it up Invenergy. Go on home. This ugly battle won’t end well for you.

      Careful salgal. Invenergy’s henchmen monitor this site as well as projo. They’ll thumb you down if you say anything against Invenergy.

    I’ll give you a thumbs up! Time for them to go away. Two years of this, enough is enough.

    I’ve said enough negative things, all deserved, about Invenergy to fly to the Moon and back. It would be impossible for me to care any less about their opinion of me and what I say about them. Thumbs down? Bring it on.

    Anyone old enough to remember The Honeymooners??

    Jackie Gleason??

    Now, there was an enlightened fellow.

    Please file the above under “humor disclaimers,” “emotional stress triggers,”
    and “feminist onslaughts.” …not even a little.

    And pour yourself a big ol’ RC Cola. Onward!!
