  •  Breaking down "Big Oil".....The History (0+ / 0-)

    Since the invention of the automobile and Standard Oil, "Big Oil" has been pushy, aggressive, and greedy....In fact, the industry has very few redeeming qualities...They don't need any subsidies..They got them from their buddies in Congress....

    The President has no choice but to allow the pipeline...It is more about the perception than the reality...It is nothing but a political trap...If he allows the pipeline, he automatically gets re-elected...There are WAY more independent votes out there than environmental votes...He can tie Keystone to another year of payroll tax cuts and unemployment...IT WILL HELP THE ECONOMY...

    For the environmentalists...YOU SHOULD LET THIS ONE SLIDE..!!!   FDR AND Clinton would both approve of this pipeline.....Neither the Hoover Dam NOR the TVA are perfect...But those are proud progressive achievements...More importantly is what the "drill,baby, drill" folks are having to admit...Cheap and easy oil is gone forever...Maybe build an algol plant next to the pipeline and see which is cheaper...
