    •  OK, Even if it's just temp (0+ / 0-)

      jobs-- BTW, the same can be said for installation of wind generators and solar farms.

      the notion we can just blow off well paid temp jobs in this shitty economy is a farce, and that's one reason Keystone will pass.

      •  Large amounts of polluted groundwater is not worth (0+ / 0-)
