Darth Vader: Yes... Yes. They will get caught into a trap and then the Imperial army will come down.
Darth Issa: The Democrats will join us or die.
This of course is the Keystone Pipeline project that Issa himself keeps on fighting for, even though it really isn't worth that much trouble over and it takes the U.S. in a completely wrong direction given the global warming issues the country and the world are facing today.
ssa Offers Dems a Trade: Back XL Pipeline to Speed Border CrossingsAnd of course Issa knows they Democrats aren't going to bend on the Keystone Pipeline issue. Why does he continue to try to propose these half-assed deals? Why Darth Issa, why?
North County Republican links Canadian oil issue to San Ysidro improvements in chamber forum.
Facing a conservative business group Friday, Rep. Darrell Issa was the only member of San Diego County’s congressional delegation present not to give full-throated support for the group’s top legislative priority—expansion of the San Ysidro border crossing.
While Democrats Susan Davis, Juan Vargas and Scott Peters promised to push hard for a White House budget that includes $226 million for the “phase 2” expansion of the massively busy port of entry, Issa said: “I’m not going to pretend that we’re going to do this.”
Issa, a North County Republican whose district includes southern Orange County, told 600 members of the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce that if Democrats want the border crossing funds, they’ll have to bend on another border issue—the Keystone XL pipeline to the Gulf of Mexico.
“You can’t be territorial on import and export,” Issa told the luncheon at the bayfront Marriott Hotel near the San Diego Convention Center. “If you want to get bipartisan buy-in on these trade issues, you have to take the big picture.”Right. We are stopping the exports of the oil for no particular reason except that we can. Oh boy. * face palm *
Calling the XL pipeline “just as important to the national dialog” as San Diego’s border with Mexico, he said: “Right now, we’re telling Canada that we will stop the exports of their oil for no particular reason except that we can.”
It's wonderful how a Congressman like Darrell Issa continues to give the lamest reasons in the world for the Keystone Pipeline without even paying one ounce of attention to the factual information that is coming out of NASA as pertains to global warming.
Take a look at the Global Ice Viewer that NASA has on its own website:
And here's a recent NASA Hangout discussing rising seas and global warming:
Lastly, here's an anti-Keystone Pipeline forum
No answer Issa?
Good. Then the San Diego County Democratic Party should start getting fired up so Issa is booted out of office.
