    Moreluck, you are no expert in pollution, nor do you have the first concept of potential dangers of anything from fracking to tar sands... if you did, you wouldnt make jokes about things like this..

    Indigenous populations
    Northern Alberta, the region where tar sands oil is extracted, is home to many indigenous populations. Important parts of their cultural traditions and livelihood are coming under attack because of tar sands operations. Not only have indigenous communities been forced off of their land, but also those living downstream from tailing ponds have seen spikes in rates of rare cancers, renal failure, lupus, and hyperthyroidism. In the lakeside village of Fort Chipewyan, for example, 100 of the town’s 1,200 residents have died from cancer.

    These problems will only get worse, unless tar sands production is halted. Investing in a new pipeline would increase the rate of production, while decreasing the quality of life for indigenous populations.

    - See more at:

    TAR SANDS are highly dangerous and on the low end of the oil chain because its the dirtiest form of oil.

    Tar Sands pose a great threat to humans if it spills or a major pipeline explosion should occur.

    But what would you know about thinking outside the box? You only repeat what you are told.

    Canada is going to drill for that oil regardless of whether the pipeline gets built. The pipeline will just be a cheaper and safer way to ship the oil to refineries in US. No pipeline means Obama's buddy and big contributor Warren Buffett makes money when it is shipped by rail instead. And railroads are already running out of capacity forcing UPS and FedEx to add more feeders.

    There are multiple lawsuits filed against the pipeline GRAY, that have to work their way through the court system.

    Of course, you fox news viewers wouldnt know this, cause its really simple just to lay pipe down across a country and not interfere in peoples lives. We all know thats how projects work.

    That dumb obama doesnt know that all you have to do is get pipe and connect it across several states to get oil, whats the big deal right?

    Well, do you believe carbon dioxide is a pollutant? Do you know what the largest greenhouse gas is. Do you know what affects our climate the most?

    Boxer posted this graphic on her Facebook page. She is blatantly lying to people when she says the pill is “not covered.” In reality the pill is one of the 16 forms of birth-control specifically covered by Hobby Lobby. The only thing they won’t cover is four types of abortifacients

    If she had a brain she’d be dangerous.

    Via Yid With Lid:

    LEE: I ask my colleagues to oppose this resolution for it is in fact a veiled attempt at impeachment and it undermines the law that allows a president to do his job. A historical fact: President Bush pushed this nation into a war that had little to do with apprehending terrorists. We did not seek an impeachment of President Bush, because as an executive, he had his authority. President Obama has the authority.

    Sheila, does H.RES.1258 ring a bell?

    It's an odd thing for Jackson Lee to say, because it was just six years ago that she helped lead a movement to impeach Bush by co-sponsoring a bill accusing him of high crimes and misdemeanors

    Gee, what a waste of your valuable time !

    Not a waste of my time, a waste of YOUR time in your original post.

    Bush was convicted in absentia for war crimes along with cheney, rice, rumsfeld and wolfowitz. Many attempts to arrest bush have been foiled, and the same with cheney.

    One day, they will leave the country and get picked up and sentenced to prison where they both belong. Unfortunately, cheney will be long dead before that will happen, but im pulling for bush to visit europe someplace.
