No excuse left on Keystone pipeline

February 6, 2014

Enough is enough — unless, apparently, you are President Barack Obama, determined to please your radical environmentalist supporters....

It's estimated that it would take 3 trillion just to repair our current infrastrcure

Little lone build new.

Better ports , better airports and power grid

"What does it matter if it's five jobs or 5000? It's jobs." As long as it is not President Obama's jobs right?

The Nation's Crumbling Infrastructure In his State of the Union address, President Obama once again stressed the need to spend more federal funds on crumbling infrastructure in coming years, but given the focus on budget cutting on Capitol Hill, Obama's clarion call will go largely unheard on Capitol Hill. How much does Obama have in mind? Around $100 billion or so. That may sound like a lot, but it’s still a drop in the bucket in terms of what's needed.

The consequences of falling short and sidestepping repairs and upgrades are grim: Lives and businesses will be at greater risk, jobs will be lost and the nation’s economy will suffer

1) I support any type of energy source. But unlike you realize there's different people with opinions and rights also.

2)Those illegals you talk about are taking American jobs and receiving benefits. It's time to address the issue Not like your cowardly republicans.

3) Those jobs you complain about are supposedly filled by Trans Canada workers.

4)I just posted a piece yesterday quoting a group of economic adviser saying passage of the AJ Act would have created over 2 million new construction and manufacturing jobs .Which you republican lip-a-tards rejected, So poo poo to you too!

I can see how safe it is. How many leaks has there been over the last couple years.

One flooded a whole town.

The main hold up was the routing near a Nebraska water supply,

But to*****with them right ?

Again Kozy can't read .

I said the vCEO of Trans Canada said there would be 2500 to 3500 jobs,

Mostly to complete the section unfinished,

Which most is complete from Nebraska down

He also said it would take approx. 50 permanent jobs to maintain pumping stations.

He also said it would before exported ."No Taxes "

Before you lecture me . Try resding

As an example do you know, ladbug, that the crude oil export ban, a harmful and outdated energy law, is finally receiving some attention. Many are unaware it is illegal to export crude oil without special permission from the Bureau of Industry and Security. With the exception of exports to Canada, permission is "rarely granted". In a country that calls for free trade and is in the midst of an energy renaissance, why does this ban still exist? Especially when it is perfectly legal to export refined oil?

This relic of the 1970s was conceived to protect domestic oil reserves and ensure America was not at the mercy of geopolitical foes. While other remnants of the oil embargo and ensuing crisis faded, such as the 55 mile per hour national speed limit, the oil export ban has proven difficult to end.

So, should this be changed to ad to our "tax" money as previously proposed? Should we horde our oil or sell some?

ladybug...can you just one time look at all the facts instead of the political ones? Do you seriously think they can complete the pipeline with under 10 people? Like many construction jobs...the jobs to build take more people than the jobs to maintain. And whether it's 4000 or 40,000 jobs that pay a pretty high wage...why not?

Can you please just read more than a few political talking points and be happy that this helps our country and some folks might have badly needed jobs!

POTUS won't do it simply because the people want it. God forbid we create some jobs instead of more welfare frauds.

I am fine with building the Keystone pipeline as long as it is understood that any oil or oil product leaving the shores of the United States is heavily taxed for the benefit of the United States. That by the way, is the only reason 'Cut and Run' Palin was ever such a popular Governor. She sent every citizen of Alaska a check from the Oil flowing across that state and they are still being paid today. It is basically a wind fall oil tax that Republicans have fought tooth and nail against everywhere except in Alaska.

Why doesn't the Salem News present the facts as they where presented by the CEO of Trans Canada a couple yrs. back

I think the American people are entitled to know.

How many temp and permanent jobs ?

Where is the oil; going after it is processed ?
