TransCanada Corp is taking its second shot at asking Washington to approve the contentious Keystone XL oil pipeline, betting that a new route through Nebraska and post-U.S. election time frame for a decision will push the project forward.

www.transcanada.com/keystone_pipeline_map.htm... www.farmland.org/resources/fote/states/map_ne... All we're saying is re-route the pipeline 50 miles east and run it along the existing pipeline. The environmentalists were a last resort for us, in my view, because the landowners are just getting no respect at all.....so in this situation I'm taking it.

Shrub's intelligence consisted of Condydyke Rice and Harriet Meiers.

Any wonder our nation was attacked and thousands murdered with those two effin dykes running around?

Shrub was such an effin failure he is afraid to leave the country. Anyplace outside the USA, the POS will be arrested, tried and execeuted for war crimes.

Actually bush had some bright moments too and you are just being a hysterical left wing nutbag. The real criminal is in the white house now. An ill advised second term would bear this out. But Americans are starting to wake up to the commie in the white house. ]

The ONLY bright moment Shrub had was on January 20, 2009, the day he and Dick left town and Obama was sworn in.

EVERYTHING else to do with Shrub was a complete, total and miserable failure. The only people who prospered under Shrub was al-qaeda. They flourished and prospered.

Keystone XL pipeline will have a refinery in Texas, however, the US will not get one drop of oil...it will be sent to foreign countries. The area where the refinery will be,is owned my "Motiva" Which is Saudi Arabia. Better think about your comments, and look at something besides the "Dollar signs." This will not benefit the US. Tarsand Oils are the dirtiest and hardest oils to Pipe. It needs chemicals that are harmful to people,wildlife, water, and the environments to get it thru the pipeline, as well as the friction producing heat that kills all vegestation near the line. Would you want it running thru your backyard, land and water supply? Think about it!!

Job Killer Obama
The Keystone XL pipeline, the bane of radical environmentalists throughout the country, would bring oil from Canada to U.S. refineries on the Gulf Coast creating jobs and stimulating local economies and industries along the way. Unfortunately, President Obama figures he needs radical environmentalists more than middle class workers for his re-election efforts so he's denying permits for the pipeline's construction.
Faced with stiff foreign competition and costly federal regulations in the U.S., the number of American refineries is shrinking -- 66 closed in the past 20 years, leaving about 145 today. Three refineries in the Philadelphia area are in the process of closing, wiping out 2,000 jobs of refinery workers and about 20,000 indirect jobs. Even before these newest job losses, refinery closures and the recession resulted in the loss of 3,000 jobs in refineries just since 2008.
While Gerard issues press releases complaining about these refinery closures, his opposition to Keystone XL is politics at its worst.
Contrast Gerard's back-stabbing of his members with Mark Ayers, president of the Building and Construction Trades Department of the AFL-CIO. Ayers' group is an alliance of 13 national and international unions that collectively represent more than 2 million skilled craft professionals in the United States and Canada.
"Environmental activists who are not saddled with the economic and psychological scars that accompany long-term unemployment will applaud the fact that they successfully induced the White House to block this project," Ayers said. "Meanwhile, thousands of proud Americans throughout the heartland will once again be faced with the terrifying prospect of losing their homes and their livelihoods as they struggle to find work."
Laborers' International Union of North America General President Terry O'Sullivan pulled his union out of the BlueGreen Alliance -- a coalition of unions and environmental groups -- after Obama's action blocking Keystone XL.
"We're repulsed by some of our supposed brothers and sisters lining up with job killers like the Sierra Club and the Natural Resources Defense Council to destroy the lives of working men and women," said O'Sullivan, whose union represents more than 500,000 construction industry workers in the U.S. and Canada. "We believe in protecting the planet, but we must also care about the people on it."

The Port Arthur refinery has undergone several years of upgrades so as to handle that dirty oil. As far as that oil being sold to any foreign countries why not it belongs to TransCanada Corp. it known as Capitalism and it benefits us by providing jobs. Meanwhile in Saudi Arabia the Chinese are building a refinery, think they've made some sort of deal for oil? Think about this, everyday on the nations highways there are tractor-trailers especially the tankers, carrying hazardous material cargo's. Some of which will kill you within minutes if not seconds or at the least severely damage your eyes, lungs and skin if your lucky. I know, I hauled some of them. Then there's those transported by rail, some right through major population areas. How many times have we seen derailments with catastrophic results. There's no guarantee that shite can't or will not happen however crying about the possible is defeatist. Think about our space program. We literally sent men into space riding in a bomb talk about nuts, but we did it and achieved great scientific advancements which benefited all mankind.

So, what is your point? That there are risks inherent in transporting hazardous materials -- so anything goes? What you label "crying about the possible" others would call Risk Assessment. Those brave astronauts who rode to the moon in a "bomb" knew the risks, and their intensive training gave them the confidence -- coupled with their bravery -- to sign on to the mission.

Families who could be seriously adversely affected by catastrophic pipeline failure lack that training, may well lack the bravery, and certainly are not consciously "signing on" to the risks inherent to the project. They deserve a say when assuming that sort of risk -- just as you did when you chose to deliver those hazardous materials. You had the opportunity to say, "No thanks" and take a different load to earn your pay.

Romney’s day one economic plan promises to “immediately approve the Keystone pipeline, creating thousands of jobs” the pipeline’s owner, TransCanada, estimated at 2,400 jobs lasting two years. Even Speaker John Boehner revised his lies of hundreds-of-thousands of jobs after TransCanada faced a Securities and Exchange Commission investigation for exaggerating the number of jobs to manipulate share prices and misinform the government.

If you really get down to brass tacks we can produce more oil then we can use in 200 years with increases each year plus we have how many 100’s or 1000’s of year of natural gas and don’t forget coal and the methane fields on top of that. And that is from a report from the Carter era (library congress look it up)

NO Keystone ... "BUT"

On Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) blocked the Child Tax Credit Integrity Preservation Act (S577) from being debated or voted on, ensuring that America is STILL losing upwards of $4 billion dollars per year to LYING illegal immigrants.
