Think. The Southern portion of the pipeline has already been completed. Did you notice? Do you honestly believe those who worked on that portion aren't going to work on the northern section if approved? Seriously...
The $5.3-billion Keystone XL Pipeline Project is the largest infrastructure project currently proposed in the United States. Construction of the 1,179-mile pipeline will require 9,000 skilled American workers. The project will provide jobs for welders, mechanics, electricians, pipefitters, laborers, safety coordinators, heavy equipment operators and other workers who rely on large construction projects for their livelihoods.

In addition to construction jobs, an estimated 7,000 U.S. jobs are being supported in manufacturing the steel pipe and the thousands of fittings, valves, pumps and control devices required for a major oil pipeline.

TransCanada has contracts with more than 50 suppliers across the U.S., including companies in Texas, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Indiana, Georgia, Maryland, New York, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Minnesota, Ohio, Arkansas, Kansas, California and Pennsylvania.

TransCanada employed 4,844 Americans in Oklahoma and Texas on construction of the $2.3-billion Gulf Coast Pipeline Project, which is expected to be complete by the end of this year.

Construction and development of the Keystone XL and Gulf Coast Pipeline Projects is anticipated to generate $20 billion in economic impact in the United States, including $99 million in local government revenues and $486 million in state government revenues during construction.

The pipelines will also generate an estimated $5 billion in additional property taxes during their operational life.

Well, duh!

Since we know there was an Ice Age...and the warning of another one in the 1970s...and a supposed global warming crisis because of a less than 1 degree rise in temperature for a decade...and now record low temperatures the past two winters...some liberals still think climate change is a big discovery.

FORT CARSON, Colo.— A Fort Carson soldier posted a photo of herself reportedly going to great lengths to refuse saluting her company’s flag, and then told those who might have an opinion on the matter to keep their mouths shut.
It’s safe to say her request has fallen on deaf ears.
The soldier has since been identified as Pfc. Tariqka Sheffey by the Army Times, and stories about the photo she posted on her once-public Instagram account,“sheffeynation,” have been picked up by the New York Daily News and Washington Times. Her Instagram account has since been made private.

Il Duce must be so proud, an invitation to the WH is likely forthcoming. Moochelle will not be sharing her lobster , however.

Protecting religious freedom applies to every religion but Christianity.

Any Muslim baker could have refused to give gays service and it would be a non-issue.

This is progressive liberalism against Christianity and gays are their useful tools.

Some baker didn't want to make a wedding cake for gays because it went against his personal beliefs. Big frikkin' deal!

They could have found another frikkin' baker who didn't give a flip.

The same thing happened In New Mexico when Christian photographers bowed out of taking pictures for a gay wedding because it went against their personal beliefs. The gay couple took them and this case all the way to the Supreme Court - and lost.

Why the hell would anyone do that? Couldn't they simply accept and respect someone else's personal beliefs and find another frikkin' photographer?

This is about nothing else but progressive liberalism going after Christianity.

Wake the hell up, Lily.

tell that to the poor fools who are paying the bills....
It is being built where the old one was just demoed. Right beside Mall Of America. The largest indoor mall in the United States.

Details emerged Friday about the Personal Seat License fees that will accompany 75 percent of seats in the new stadium, according to Rochelle Olson of the Star Tribune.

Three out of every four stadium-goers will buy in for this program, assuming the stadium sells out, which it will.

The Vikings and the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority are calling the fees "seat builders licenses" or SBLs. The San Francisco 49ers also referred to these as SBLs, during the construction of Levi's Stadium, which is scheduled to open next season.

No matter what you call them, these PSLs are another source of money that will go the team's contribution. The stadium likely will cost about $1 billion, and the Wilf family will contribute $518 million, according to Olson's report.

But don't mistake that for the Wilfs fronting half the cost of the future palace.

The most expensive seat license for the Vikings will cost $9,500, according to Olson, but seats without club access will not go for more than $2,000.

1. These PSLs will raise $100 million of the Vikings' contribution.

The naming rights deal, whenever it's signed, also will go to the team's contribution. What can the Wilfs hope to earn on such a deal?

Well, the Niners agreed in May to a deal with Levi Strauss & Co. for a 20-year,$220 million deal for the stadium set to open in Santa Clara, Calif. That stadium bill was about $1.2 billion. The next-most recent NFL stadium is MetLife stadium, which has a naming rights deal between $17 million and $20 million annually, according to the New York Times.

Let's make a more conservative estimate for the Vikings. Maybe they deal five years shorter and worth less than half the annual value of the naming rights contract the 49ers signed. That's 15 years at $10 million per annum, or a $150 naming rights deal. Any new naming rights money beyond that point also would go to the team's coffers, but for the sake of being conservative, let's still with $150 million.

2. That $150 million from a naming rights deal goes to the team's contribution, too.

The Vikings also received a $200 million "loan" from the NFL to help offset the costs of building a new stadium. The Vikings will have to repay the money from the league, but it can come out of revenue sharing funds the team already would have had to pay to the league. So in essence, they're redirecting money they already would be paying to the NFL to help repay off the "loan."

3. That $200 million NFL loan goes to the team's contribution.

Those three deals add up, and the NFL, a title sponsor and 75 percent of stadium goers will foot the bill for $450 million of the Vikings'$518 million payment.

That's the big business of the NFL.

I'm not bemoaning the fact that this is how the business works. It's certainly fine for Vikings fans to be excited about the stadium. It appears it will be beautiful.

But it's helpful to have an accurate picture of who will pay for it.

The People's Stadium: If they build it, they will come.

Obama infamously said that he wanted the price of coal electricity to "necessarily skyrocket," and in March of 2012, a video of him stating the same sentiment about gas prices became public record.

¨Not only do we have to invest in mass transit, but we have also have to make sure that, we also have to make sure that people are making good decisions about cars. And their freedom--people are, you know, people are free to buy a [Chevrolet] Suburban if you want, it gets 8 miles a gallon but we can't subsidize to make sure that you have--you are able to fill up your Suburban tank at a really cheap rate because that's not the trajectory of oil prices worldwide.¨

Unless, of course, you're a hypocrite liberal who really doesn't give a sh it about the environment, you just want the votes and the cash that will roll in with them.

More liberal it's ¨for the children¨ BS.

Michelle Obama stepped up the pressure Tuesday against companies selling junk food to students, announcing a new government proposal that would ban advertising of sodas and unhealthy snacks in public schools.

The hope is to normalize healthy eating and regular exercise for kids, she said.

"So for them the norm will be fruits and vegetables and not chips and candy," she said. "So hopefully in the grocery market they will be begging us for items from the produce aisle instead of from the snack aisle."

If the left actually cared about ¨childhood obesity¨ and poor dieting, they would restrict what people receiving SNAP could purchase - but ¨soft drinks, candy, cookies, snack crackers, and ice cream are food items and are therefore eligible items.¨

so are you saying the Founders were liberals?
Exactly...and protects one's religious freedom not to be forced to do anything that goes against their religious beliefs.

Right?

Wouldn't you protect and defend an Islamic, Buddhist or Hindu business owner's religious freedom if they were being forced to do something that went against their beliefs?

I would. But you exempt Christians. Which is by design. There's a war on Christianity all over the world and it's coming here.
