Canada is friendly to the United States, idiot. That makes a huge difference.
Well, that was true until Obama and the Democrats enacted a law in 2009 that placed strict controls on the Canada - US border. And that's the reason the Prime Minister of Canada looked like he wanted to strangle Obama in the photo op after their meeting in 2009.
Imagine that. Obama and the Democrats seal the border with Canada and erase the border with Mexico.
Hey stupid! The Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative was enacted in 2008 and signed into law by George W. Bush and in fact includes Mexico. Are you an idiot or just a goddamned liar?

Okay, let's simplify.
America is on a continent, we call call it the North "American" continent. So is Canada, which means for starters-neither is in or off the middle east.(cool huh?) Thus, instant reduction on dependency of middle east oil, because when things are not stable in the middle east, that poses fluctuations and risk for those nations dependent upon it. Like for example-Libya.
You're webbie search for the day-please research and then post back to us, what nations form the orginization called OPEC.
Then, research how many jobs would be opened up, due to KEYSTONE running from the top of the United States (aka the northern continental United states) from Canada (alos the northern continent) all the way down to the bottom of the United States.
That'll be enough for one day-we won't go in to the positive cause and effects on the American economy just yet.

Well I did research how many jobs would be created by the Keystone XL and according to the Cornell University Global Labor Institute more jobs would be lost than gained.

The pipeline itself wasn't the issue, it was the proposed route that would transect the Ogallala Aquifer that provides water for millions of residents in five states. Even the Republican governor of Nebraska was opposed to it. What nitwits like you seem to ignore is that oil from tar sands costs more to extract and refine and would in fact cause oil prices to go up.
You're an idiot.

For every job his stimulus created, it cost the taxpayers $278,000 per job. Not exactly the kind of job stimulus we were anticipating. These people weren't making $278,000 but Obama somehow created a unique class of 1%'ers - for taxpayers.
So basically, his stimulus failed and, right behind it, Obamacare made sure the job crisis continued and served as a catalyst for a stagnant and snail-crawling slow recovery of the economy.
It's a no-win combination for Obama any way you look at it.
Sure stupid, when you embark on let's say a road repair project we just send a bunch of guys out with $10 shovels from Home Depot. Included in the price is equipment, supplies and administrative overhead. Mark Zandi of Moody's and Alan Blinder did a study that found that the stimulus did work and helped end the recession. You're also forgetting that a large chunk of the stimulus was a tax cut for working Americans. You're still ignoring the fact that identical employer mandates found in Romneycare had no impact on businesses in Massachusetts.
I will repeat again in the probably vain hope that it will penetrate your thick skull; it's the GOP and their blood oath to block any legislation that would improve the economy that's a drag.
You're delusional Carol.

Mormons Officially Renounce Polygamy:‘1890 Manifesto’
he fate of Utah and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has been inextricably linked ever since Brigham Young led a group of Mormon pioneers to Salt Lake Valley on July 24, 1847, to found a new community. They were fleeing the persecution that had plagued them everywhere they settled, first in Ohio and Missouri, and then most especially in their own Illinois community of Nauvoo—where their founding prophet, Joseph Smith, Jr., was assassinated by an angry mob after being imprisoned in Carthage, Il.

Utah was part of Mexico when the Mormons arrived, and it was so remote from both the U.S. and Mexico City that the Mormons believed they would finally be left alone. However, their new home became U.S. territory by the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo in 1848 that ended the Mexican-American War. Utah Territory was created by the Compromise of 1850, and in the first 22 years after settling in the harsh conditions of their new home, the Mormon community grew as 70,000 believers joined them. Other pioneers came to Utah Territory as well, lured by the abundant land and rich mineral resources—especially silver.

By 1890, Utah had become the most populous and prosperous of the U.S. territories. Both Church members and non-members wanted to be admitted into the Union, but the U.S. opposed them because of the Mormon practice of polygamy, or plural marriage. A special federal investigation, called the “Utah Commission,” found evidence that polygamy was still being sanctioned by the Church in Utah. In response to this, on Sept. 24, 1890, Church President Wilford Woodruff wrote the “1890 Manifesto” to formally disavow polygamy and announce to the world that the Church did not condone the practice.

This manifesto effectively stymied opposition to Utah’s statehood. When the territory next applied it was accepted, and on Jan. 4, 1896, Utah was admitted into the Union as the 45th state.

"For this espionage, infidels gave her awards and rewards. And Islam orders killing of those who are spying for enemies," the group said in a statement.

"We did not attack her for raising voice for education. We targeted her for opposing mujahedeen and their war. Shariah (Islamic law) says that even a child can be killed if he is propagating against Islam."

Over the weekend, conservative Pakistani politician Maulana Fazlur Rehman, who originally spoke out against the demonstrators, softened his stance, saying that he condemned the attack on "our daughter."
