    Obama says no pipeline because.....

    1. He wants to get oil from unstable nations
    2. He wants to protect a few thousand lizards who apparently wouldn't understand how to crawl under or over a fucking pipe.
    3. He likes gasoline prices at 3 dollars compared to 1.83 when he took office.
    4. Apparently some deer are incapable of living on one side of the pipe over the other.
    5. We haven't lost enough to China yet.
    6. He doesn't want the states involved to make the extra revenue.
    7. 20k + jobs is just a laughing stock
    8. Wants to save a few sand dunes in Nebraska.
    9. Says the gop gave him too short a deadline despite this being in the works and studied for years.
    10. God I really despise Obama.

    Ps. We have 10's of thousands of miles of pipelines currently in use in this country without major incident. There really is NO EXCUSE for this kind of ineptness.

    Buying crude shipped from overseas rather than local crude to refine here doesn't impact cost? Are you drunk?

    It cost me 30 bucks today just to do 2 estimates and 1 delivery. "NOT THAT MUCH" might not seem like a lot to you but to someone like me that spends more on fuel at times than my fucking house payment its a lot. Not all of us can drive wind up toys as our vehicle of choice.

    I haven't forgotten. But there is a slight difference for your few miles a week driven to my hundreds and hundreds. You do the math. It would help both of us but in my case it could save me hundreds of dollars a month. That's half of a possible new laborers salary or money for my retirement or money to invest. There have been weeks where I have had to spend over 300 per week on fuel to function. When gas was at 4 bucks a gallon I would often opt for hotel rooms to save money. And I'm just a small business. Translate those possible savings to a company with a fleet or a company like FedEx.

    Yes, there is it, Progressive economics. Oil, the one commodity impervious to the law of supply and demand. Now you see how they run up annual $1.3 Trillion deficits

    OK the pipe line and gas will be down a dime in a week, or don't you understand the commodities market?

    It's all oil no matter where it ends up being used. Ask TDM if you can borrow her brain cell. She's not using it.
