Mr. Buck, there are plenty who support the construction of the pipeline. One must take some brisk to move forward. We must move forward or be left behind.

All these spooks thinking Cushing be a boom town again. What if the price of gas continued to go down, gas was cheap and plentiful during the great depression. Even gold fell

to Mssrs. Buck & Riprock,(one and the same) I am actually in contact with many of the oilfield workers in Cushing.(I don't work in the oil patch). I haven't run into a single individual, whether working for the pipeline companies, the local drillers, and local service companies who are opposed to the project. I can actually name names of folks who support construction of the pipeline. Since you seem to think everybody is against it, why don't you produce some folks? And their names? You are no doubt aware there are dozens of major pipelines that have been here for decades, and hundreds more smaller ones.

You seemed to be "concerned" about Cushing, but I've never seen a post from you in which you didn't allege corruption, pollution, and evil. I actually live here, know hundreds of folks here who are not evil or corrupt.

You're just a frigging idiot,(I'm sorry, that's an insult to idiots) hiding behind the cloak of anonymity on you're little computer posting all the trash you can dream up, whether it's true or not. Why don't you go and rag on Buffalo, New York? Kansas City, MO? Metarie, LA? Find some other city to spread your garbage around in PLEASE.

You seem to have missed the major issues, the union vote against the project, a national organized protest targeting Trans Canada, and the fact I wouldn't piss on Cushing if it was on fire.

Do you know many metric tons of oil sand can flow out of hugh broken underground pipe in just a matter of minutes? or hours? or days? The land will be worthless and so will the water. Finally no one will want to live around a brand new manmade cancer pool, remember being on the superfund list? Do we need Cushing polluted more than it already is?

This pipeline wouldn't be needed if it was just going to this country, its for worldwide export. Its going down to port arthur so it can be loaded on tankers and shipped all over the world. I fail to see how this helps Cushing in the long term
