I’ve been to DISH, TX 2 or 3 times now and each time I shut down emotionally and physically because the destruction of citizen’s property is just too much for me to comprehend. I thought I had seen some abuse in Wise County with the caviler attitude drillers take, but MAN! You ain’t seen nothin’ til you’ve been to DISH, TX.
When I’ve been to DISH, TX, I’ve been untypically quite and very still. I can’t even take pictures because I don’t know where to start. There is no camera big enough to picture the destruction of these people’s lives and property.

What a shame! There are people who “signed their names” and allowed this intrusion to happen in the first place. They are the ones who should be forced to pay for all the damages.
Actually, that’s not at all what happened in DISH. This is a case of eminent domain by pipeline companies.
