Instead of defunding Obamacare, why don't we try defunding terrorism?

Part of every dollar we spend on imported oil goes to fund Al Qaeda. A CIA official stated, "We are buying the rope for them to hang us."

(Reuters)- A Tesoro Logistics LP pipeline has spilled more than 20,000 barrels of crude oil into a North Dakota wheat field, the biggest leak in the state since it became a major U.S. producer.

The six-inch pipeline was carrying crude oil from the Bakken shale play to the Stampede rail facility outside Columbus, North Dakota. The affected part of the line has been shut down, Tesoro said.

Farmer Steven Jensen discovered the leak on September 29 while harvesting wheat on his 1,800-acre farm, about nine miles northeast of Tioga, North Dakota.

Oil was gushing from the pipeline "like a faucet, 4 to 6 inches spewing out," said Jensen, who added that nearby wheat plants were ruined.

The leak did not pose an immediate threat to groundwater sources, Kris Roberts, who leads the environmental response team at the state Department of Health told Reuters.

At an estimated 20,600 barrels, it ranks among the biggest U.S. spills in recent years. It is the biggest oil leak on U.S. land since March, when the rupture of an Exxon Mobil pipeline in Mayflower, Arkansas spilled 5,000 to 7,000 barrels of heavy Canadian crude.

It comes at a time when concerns are growing over the safety of the U.S. pipeline network, which is pumping more oil than ever to bring shale oil and Canadian crude to U.S. refiners.

I have to disagree with you on one factual point here, caveman. Osama bin Ladin is not "mouldering in his grave." The Navy SEALs fed his mangy carcass to the sharks in the Indian Ocean.
I stand corrected, then. I thought he was in an unmarked grave, which, in a manner of speaking, he is.

So he sleeps with the fishes.

Well caveman made a comment, I supported it. Besides I think the government shutdown is reflecting through all of topix. With things like climate science research being shutdown as well as other countries research which relies on US infrastructure. So yes Tea Baggers are relevant to this topic and probably half of all the other political talking points.

Denialists made this issue political.

Rational people would have recognized the problem and started working on a solution.

And, in fact, rational people have. But not denialists. Denialists discount the science because they feel it threatens them or their lifestyle, and oppose mitigation because of their political philosophy.

I suppose we all have different views on how big and reaching government can/should be.

I don't know what the Tea Party platform actually stands for other than 'smaller government' in general. I assume they don't want to pay most of the tab for other countries, who generally resent the US, rather it be infrastructure...or the UN...or whatever.

I think there's plenty of blame to go around for where the nation is with its debt problem. When do both sides come together and make hard choices? Why even have a debt ceiling.....if it really is meaningless and always lifted?

All I know is that the US isn't what it used to be.....and probably never will be again. Maybe it's time the country realizes the future damage caused by kicking the can down the road while government spending remains "business as usual"? Isn't that pretty much the same argument warmists hold about co2 emissions?

As Obama has deemed all the government run global websites 'non-essential', what's a warmist to do?

that is real funny,'caveman'. a rational person would know that the earth has been warming since the last ice age. hence there is no longer a mile and a half of ice over much of north America. a rational person would realize that. a rational person would not believe the fairytale of global warming caused by man, promoted by a failed political pos. rational people do not fall for such b.s.

Slow moving? That defines volcanoes rising above the oceans, being eroded as coral reefs form around them and sinking to become atolls like the Maldives. They've been sinking for hundreds of millions of years - don't panic.

BTW, Coral needs CO2 to secrete calcium carbonate.
