    It "our" oil until it gets pulled out of the ground.  Then it becomes a capitalist's/corporation's  "personal" property to be sold to the highest bidder in pursuit of profit for shareholders.

    Why people keep repeating this vicious canard about  "our" "energy security" when in fact this is all about corporate profits and fuck Americans.

    We have been selling off our heritage so Paris fucking Hilton could get a new fucking gown and deluding ourselves that this is somehow to our benefit.

    What a cruel joke to even use the term "energy security".

    don't always believe what you think

      But with the dynamics of  the situation being decided by our bought and paid for politicians, it doesn't matter how awful the Keystone XL pipeline will be, or how it will add to  how much we pay for gasoline.

      And the pipeline probably will end up costing us the major aquifers that eighteen different states rely on for drinking and irrigation water.

      Offer your heart some Joy every day of your life, and spread it along to others.

      ... have done their research and "our energy security" works will in focus groups.

      Like so many other things, the fact that there is no direct path from reality to the tested message does not matter ot the messaging professionals ... their job is to get across the message that Big Oil is paying them to get across.
