    Re Jamess' comments: I used those exact words last night when I gave my reason for going to DC to demonstrate against the Keystone Pipeline.

    I feel it is my moral conscience driving me to be there. I cannot stand idly by & watch global warming destroy our country/our planet. I'm especially thinking of all the generations yet to be born that will suffer greatly if this pipeline is given the go-ahead.

    Yes - I too am very ashamed of the USA for not taking a leadership position on preventing global warming from advancing where it will no longer be possible to stop the worst things from happening. All policy decisions are now being made from what the oligarchy wants NOT sane, rational view points.

    We must be the change we wish to see in the world. - Gandhi
