    Well sometimes a comment get misconstrued. History shows old pipelines from East Texas to NY had auxiliary lines to McDonalds Jones ancestors in NJ that they benefited from in the mid 40’s. Duh? Ok, well like he said to crapville.

    The pipeline isn’t just about creating jobs. Right now the railroads are shipping more oil than ever. Oil from Bakken and other places is more unstable and transport via pipeline would be safer. Farmers and forest product companies are being severely impacted as railroads get more for transporting oil than those products. Lac-Megantic accident could happen again as much of the rail systems are aging as well. Better infrastructure is necessary from an environmental as well as an economic stance. Transporting oil from these fields is not going away.

    Keystone is not a “jobs plan.” It’s barely an “energy plan.” The main thing holding it back now is Nebraska, if I’m not mistaken. Obama is probably going to cave in and let them have their sludge pipe to crapville. Whatever.

    I think it’s another ‘Ruse’ Bunker – we were set up to ‘want it’ believing the ‘spin’ (jobs – lower gas prices/etc) that it’ll benefit Americans – it isn’t and it won’t. Benefits the FEW.
    “Energy Security: Tar Sand will not Reduce Dependence on Foreign Oil Keystone XL will not lessen U.S. dependence on foreign oil, but transport Canadian oil to American refineries for export to overseas markets. Keystone XL is an export pipeline.” Instead of refining it in Canada and piping it to their nearest port, it’s going thru 7 US states to be refined in TX. “Gulf Coast refiners plan to refine the cheap Canadian crude supplied by the pipeline into diesel and other products for export to Europe and Latin America. Proceeds from these exports are earned tax-free. Much of the fuel refined from the pipeline’s heavy crude oil will never reach U.S. drivers’ tanks.” Keystone XL will increase gas prices for Americans—Especially Farmers … http://tarsandsaction.org/keystone-xl-facts/ It’s “Dirty Oil Sands” – Even Canada doesn’t want to process it, so pipe it to TX and port it off to (China, India) for ‘cheap fuel. Plus: Jobs: TransCanada’s jobs projections are vastly inflated. Consider the thousands of jobs lost (Microsoft, HP, closures, bankruptcies See: daily job cuts dot com) temp. jobs – some kept on to clean up the spills that have been known to happen.
    This project serves only a FEW, while endangering and placing more of the burden and costs on the people. [‘Tar Sands’ In this hard-hitting book, journalist Andrew Nikiforuk exposes the disastrous environmental, social, and political costs of the tar sands and argues forcefully for change.] The pipeline already exists into the US – they’ll just extend it: 1700 miles, 700,000 barrels a day. “Keystone PipeLIES Exposed: The Facts on Sticky Leaks, Billion Dollar Spills, and Dirty Air”

      There will come a time when we may not get anything out of the East. We have thousands of miles line without problems as far as I know. Lower the Corporate taxes and this money will come back this way. Afraid I disagree with you on this on.

        (I think it’s another ‘Ruse’ Bunker – we were set up to ‘want it’ believing the ‘spin’ (jobs – lower gas prices/etc) that it’ll benefit Americans – it isn’t and it won’t. Benefits the FEW.)
        made me pay attention where I might not have otherwise simply because I am not knowledgeable enough on the pipeline issue. What I AM knowledgeable on is our government using reverse psychology on us every time we turn around. So I went over to an article I read several days ago –

        Devvy Kidd at News With Views in her article – MID-TERM ELECTION RESULTS: BRUTAL REALITY – http://newswithviews.com/Devvy/kidd660.htm – dropped this line in her writing –

        “The Republican elite who run the GOP in the House and now the Senate vow to get the crushing Keystone Pipeline passed which will throw thousands of Americans off their land. Instead of going for the solution, they choose to destroy people’s lives”
        Then she added four links – one here – http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2012/01/18/six-reasons-keystone-xl-was-bad-deal-all-along/

        Now back to you folks if your interested.

        Oops I replied to the wrong comment
        We have thousands of miles of pipeline already moving oil and gas. If not the pipeline then it will be moved by rail. Fellow Comrade Matrix sent me some links and has been asking me to do a post as to the dangerousness of doing this by rail. If Buffett and the Rockefellas are against it, it is a confused mess.
        Here is a link to a graph that has a pic of the lines already down without problems

        Then we have this:
        Warren Buffett’s Burlington Northern Santa Fe LLC is among U.S. and Canadian railroads that stand to benefit from the Obama administration’s decision to reject TransCanada Corp. (TRP)’s Keystone XL oil pipeline permit.
        With modest expansion, railroads can handle all new oil produced in western Canada through 2030, according to an analysis of the Keystone proposal by the U.S. State Department.

        The keystone pipeline is actually just one of several oil sands pipelines targeted by the Rockefeller Brother’s Fund. Ezra Levant calls it industrial sabotage and, based on their own Power Point, that certainly seems an apt description. H/T: Heritage From Rockefeller Fund sabotages Keystone pipeline approval. The Rockefeller Brother’s Fund in a coordinated, 4-year, $28 million dollar campaign was on the march to defeat it.
        “Whatever people bring to us, we’re ready to haul,” Krista York-Wooley, a spokeswoman for Burlington Northern, a unit of Buffett’s Omaha, Nebraska-based Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (BRK/A), said in an interview. If Keystone XL “doesn’t happen, we’re here to haul.” From: Bloomberg

        I use to think it was a good idea too, esp being “Anything the Dems are for I’m against!” But, like you stated, this was switched on us. If the Gov. was being run like the Founding Nation, those in leadership positions would be doing things much differ – but it’s being run like a Corp America – under ‘shadow gov. rule. I didn’t know about the land steals, makes sense thought.
        “The first Keystone tar sands pipeline, constructed less than a year ago, has sprung its twelfth leak, spilling up to 2,100 gallons of raw tar sands crude oil in Kansas on May 29th when a pipeline fitting around a pressure transmitter failed. This comes just three weeks after a broken pipe fitting on Keystone resulted in a 60’ geyser of tar sands crude, spewing 21,000 gallons in North Dakota. …” http://switchboard.nrdc.org/blogs/aswift/the_first_keystone_tar_sands_p.html

      WASHINGTON, D.C. — Repeating his previous action, U.S. Rep. Justin Amash stood as the only House Republican to not vote in favor of the Keystone XL pipeline project.

      Amash, R-Cascade Township, voted “present” on a bill Friday to allow the construction of the controversial pipeline, which would run from the U.S./Canadian border to the Gulf Coast.http://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/index.ssf/2014/11/rep_justin_amash_again_votes_p.html

        I remember reading that too Bunker – I wonder if they were threatening that just to make the pipeline seem the better option. Reminds me of a short series: “Rubicon” Based on a book “that tackles the role of government and big business in ordering the affairs of the world, using terrifying tactics that include warfare and population control by way of covert and illegal actions.”
        You might find it worth your time – I thought them well done and insightful. Only 13 episodes. Watch online for free: http://www.thedarewall.com/tv/rubicon
