    I doubt Redford needs a job: Anyone disagree?

    why do we have to pay 7 billion for an oil pipeline? Why do tax payers have to pay for any oil pipeline for any amount of money when the oil industry is already very profitable?

    haven't read the article yet, but is the 7 billion on us or it is just permission to cross state lines or eminent domain issues?

    i know, i know, read the article.... :(

    Inadvertently sammieboy made a point. Redford does not need job so those with an open mind will listen more carefully to his argument than one offered by those who have a financial interest.

    Of course, this thread is one of many partisan threads begun by an Obama hater whose vision is 'colored'. Why that is so is open to debate, but I digress. The issue is protecting the environment, nothing in the thread offers an explanation of the objections of Redford or others whose special interest is in protecting our environment.

    Reasonable people will take the time to examine all aspects of such a proposal and seek a win-win solution. Odd-balls will always engage in zero sum games.

    "We" are not paying for the pipeline.

    It is being built by TransCanada and ConocoPhillips.

    Pipelines have the right of eminent domain it seems. And TransCanada is kind of agressive about how it acquires land.

    In the current political climate where jobs are the over reaching issue, I wonder why they are getting so much opposition. It does seem sometimes that Obama really preferes having the problem of the depression to having any kind of non state solution.

    home owners having objections to using eminent domain to take their land away for a pipeline for Canada is Obama's doing? isn't that a bit of a stretch B?

    Actually you are both streching.

    A. Obama's problem is that he is NOT objecting to the XL Keystone.
    B. Where are these homeowner's who are objecting to anyone buying their home, Care? These days, I wish like hell anyone would pay anything like above market price for my home!
