Videos of what gas drilling in your backyard is really like

Txsharon has posted these videos she received from a friend of hers who recently got a rig in their backyard! The property owners do not own their mineral rights and could not stop this from happening. The mineral owner has the right to come in and do whatever they need to in order to get those minerals. Seems like it should be a crime right? Well it isn't and happens every day here in Texas and many other states. The rig, bulldozers, workers and the rest of the drilling equipment just showed up one day.

For those of you that may still believe that gas drilling near homes is not that bad, please check out the videos and read the story to see for yourself.
