    Why Oppose Keystone XL? To those who think it's pointless

    The groups that have many diaries with many links on many subjects.

    I don't find your comment a constructive addition here. Please consider using the Is it True? Is it Kind? Is it Necessary? check before you hit Post. You know I live in CO (Denver metro), would you talk to me like that in person at a meet up? (We do have Kossacks in Boulder)

    Check the definition of pollyanna. If you got optimism from that comment, I was not trying to convey it. FYI, I have made comments regarding my past and present experiences with depression. There are plenty of diaries and comments by others here who also cope with it. Another good perspective for the tone of comments is 'be kinder than necessary', especially when you don't personally know the writer.

        Keystone and Vancouver would be my choice, Kitimat, absolutely not, First Nations have suffered enough, no more of this.

        We are the end users in modern industrialized dense idiotic USA, we should resist and make it as tough as possible, tax it more, fee it and employ lots of lawyers provided they spend their earnings here at home, heh, but pretty much I agree with Rei here, it's pretty much, 'pick the kitten you want, I'm gonna drown the rest.'
