Google “The 666 of Barnett Gas Ft Worth – her name is Anne”…. Barnett-Burnett whatever.
In reading this mornings news about the NON re-election of PA Governor Tom Corbett and his frack friendly political donors, I noticed that a gal from Ft Worth named Anne Marion, of Texas based Burnett Oil Company, donated $78,000 to his (now failed) campaign. Anne’s family story starts with how Captain Barnett’s father, a farmer, moved from Missouri to Denton TX around 1858 and became a rancher. Captain Barnett befriended indians in search of edible pastures for his horses. Below is a picture of his son Tom, Anne’s grandfather…
Anne’s great-grandfather, Captain Burk, passed away in 1922 and now she holds the inherited reins of the ‘6666 Ranch’. Here is the Facebook link…
How appropriate for those that subscribe to 666 or even 6666 being of a devilish connotation. When oil was found in that Barnett family and the oil money was used to grow the ranch and more drilling, that was the start of the unsustainable marriage of fossil fuels and ranching….they just don’t mix in the long run.
Cows & horses (and humans) need water….
drilling threatens our water.
I hope Anne’s lineage of children turn things around in that
‘dancing with the devil department’
I pray to my Triune God that Anne’s family investments change to consist of buying into the renewable energy business or become hated and fast approaching
