    Your insults that were removed. I suspect some women were displeased with the first one. It was very insensitive towards women, not just those opposed to fracking.

    I am not opposed to fracking, btw, if done without trespassing the rights of others.

    My Dad operated a rod pulling unit in the 1950s and my uncle, who passed away this last week at the age of 91, was a pumper all his life.

    The data is showing that the volume of disposed of water, associated with fracking, is a major contributor to the quakes.

    As with bigbenorr, I'll ask you to stick to FACTS and science and not resort to childish insults which shows you have nothing to refute the FACTS.

    You could argue that the earth is flat also, but science has proven that invalid, just as science is proving your belief, that fracking has nothing to do with the increase in quakes, invalid.

    You are biased toward the oil and gas industry, for whatever reason, despite the science.

    I bought KMP options in Feb, 2014, on the "hopes" I could make a decent profit before Jan. 2015, when the options expired. I made a 700+% return based on hope. So far " hope" seems to be a valid strategy for me.

    As an accountant, I looked for all ways, big and small, to reduce costs and increase revenues. It all adds up. I see "O" doing the same thing.

    "I bought "O" in Nov. 2012 for under $38/share. It raised its dividend by over 22% in 2013 and its 3 years dividend growth rate is about 8.9%."

    My "hope" was for steadily increasing dividends, and thus share price. So far so good.

    I didn't buy it based on a one year projection of FFO.

    "As long as O's credit rating is unaffected, what is so brilliant about replacing a security paying 6.75% with one paying only 4.125%?"

    They are reducing their cost to borrow. One would have thought that was readily apparent. Reducing the interest rate reduces expense on borrowed money.

    "Why is O down today? Why is O down some 25% from its 2013 high?"

    It was "irrational exhuberance" that took it to its 2013 high. AFFO never justified the share price being $50+ a share in my opinion.

    It's debt ratio may be increasing on a GAAP basis, but GAAP is not a reliable basis to measure the debt ratio, IMO, since it does not yet recognize the increase in FMV of assets owned.

    Sure, the share price will likely take a good hit when rates start to rise, but long term I see it as a good dividend paying stock and investment. Long "O" and will buy more in the future.

    Will be buying more "O" after interest rates begin to rise and there is more visibility on what the share price will do under that scenario. As seen with today's price decline, rising rates or the talk of them will impact the share price negatively.

    "about 10,000 - 15,000 earthquakes of this magnitude (4.0-4.9) occur each year.


    'Noticeable shaking of indoor objects and rattling noises. Felt by most people in the affected area. Slightly felt outside. Generally causes none to minimal damage. Moderate to significant damage very unlikely. Some objects may fall off shelves or be knocked over.' "


    You are behind on the data and info that has developed since 2008.

    "Denton updated its drilling rules in 2013, included adding 200 feet to its previous 1,000-foot buffer between homes, schools, parks and hospitals, but the changes did not deter drilling clearly within that zone."

    "In April 2013, an EagleRidge well blowout released benzene and other chemicals into a neighborhood, prompting evacuations and flight diversions at the city's airport."

    Energy companies ignoring city boundaries, and endangering the population.

    Major property damage:

    I'd suggest doing research, rather than spouting outdated info and knowledge.

    "about 10,000 - 15,000 earthquakes of this magnitude (4.0-4.9) occur each year. "

    If you read my links, never mind here is what the links have to say about earthquakes in our part of the country:

    "Oklahoma averaged two magnitude 3.0 and higher earthquakes per year between 1978-2008 according to seismology Austin Holland with the Oklahoma Geological Survey. But Holland tells msnbc that in the first half of 2014 alone, Oklahoma has experienced more than 253 different magnitude 3.0 and higher quakes. Holland also noted that the number will increase once OGS scientists analyze the backlog of data that accumulated over the July 4th holiday."

    Did you get that? Prior to 2008, OK averaged 2 magnitude 3.0 and higher quakes a year.

    Here's another link:

    "Ellsworth said the Dallas-Fort Worth region previously had just a single known earthquake, in 1950.

    Since 2008, he said, there have been more than 70 big enough to feel. Those include earthquakes at the Dallas-Fort Worth airport that scientists linked to a nearby injection well."

    Read more here: http://bit.ly/1spNULF

    Some of these have caused property damage.

    Let me connect the dots for ya, since you have a vested interest in the oil and gas industry and don't appear to want to accept the truth of the situation:

    "Furthermore, the USGS reported conducting a statistical analysis of the “recent earthquake rate changes” and determined that “they do not seem to be due to typical, random fluctuations in natural seismicity rates.”

    The analysis posits that “a likely contributing factor to the increase in earthquakes is triggering by wastewater injected into deep geologic formations,” the USGS reported. OGS studies “also indicate that some of the earthquakes in Oklahoma are due to fluid injection,” the USGS added."

    The increase in fracking since 2008 appears to be a major cause of the increase in number and intensity of quakes. That's my opinion because we don't have enough information, yet.

    The oil and gas industry is risking the favor of public opinion in their behavior by not dealing with the reality head on.

    Try a 4.5 magnitude quake. Felt in Wichita Falls, Tx, with epicenter near Edmund OK. I thought the wife had jumped onto the bed. She said that the dining room shook and the stuff on the shelves shook and rattled.

    http://bit.ly/1oUq7RH

    We have felt several of these in Wichita Falls in the last couple of years.

    As noted in my link below, the USGS is anticipating a large one in OK. Before fracking started in 2008, this was unheard of in our part of the country.

    Ishi, your profile says you wish to share truth in an age of yellow journalism. Yet you have labeled me "the Left" because I have shared what is currently known about the huge increase in earthquakes in OK since 2008. The USGS is part of "the Left" is it? I am a conservative Republican who has never voted for a Democrat in my life. (I don't believe in abortion as a means of birth control) Truth is truth. The evidence is mounting that activities associated with fracking is a major contributor to the increase.

    And there are those who claim that Juice Plus (one of my links) saved their lives, also.

    Again, to say there are not real retail customers and real sales people looks dishonest to me, designed to try and win an argument. I stand by what I have said. Shut 'em all down or shut up.
