the people didn't vote for this congress

the issue borders on petty

tax that oil through the pipeline and move on

[-] 2 points by StillModestCapitalist (343) 2 years ago

The industry isn't even going to pay for it's own pipeline. They will acquire the land through eminent domain.

right, trade and commerce should be regulated by the government

tax that oil

keep the pipeline on public land

congress certainly does not have the consent of the people to give away lands to private companies

Not Voting - 2

Reid (D-NV) Rubio (R-FL)

Of the 36 Senators to vote AGAINST the XL pipeline, 34 were Democrats. Two were liberal Independents. NONE were Republicans. Every single one of them voted FOR the pipeline. As usual, they have no regard whatsoever for the environment.

'Duopoly' my ass.

So just how many Green Party members voted? NONE. They don't have any seats. At the rate their party is gaining power, it will take them a full century to overtake either of the major political parties in Congress.

The GOP can do a lot of damage in the meantime.

If the polls indicate a real shot for any third party candidate, then by all means, do your research. Consider their positions and affiliations and vote your conscience. But don't be a fool. A wasted vote on a hopeless third party candidate is a vote for the GOP.

It's amazing how we keep getting screwed, no mater who is in the White House or who controls Congress, isn't it Mr Duopoly Man? It's almost as if they know how many votes they need to continue their assault on the 99%!

Explain the delay of Keystone. It's been delayed in Congress for several years.

Explain it.

I'll give you a clue.

The 'Green Party' had nothing to do with it.

[-] 1 points by turbocharger (1756) 2 years ago

And now your president can veto it.

If Dems werent such sell outs to begin with, the voters would have turned out.

Turns out, most people dont appreciate being lied to. But the loyal idiots on both side will be there till the cows come home.

Keep holding onto a lie. In truth, its people like you and DKA that are holding up the process at this point.

[-] 0 points by StillModestCapitalist (343) 2 years ago

More voters would have turned out if it weren't for Russell Brand, you, the rest of the poser posse and other conservatives HELL-BENT on discouraging them or diverting their attention to HOPELESS candidates.

Now explain the delay.

Right, it has nothing to do with the corruption, the lies and the scandals.

I already did. They were busy pushing through the explotation of the entire Atlantic.

And Dem supporters were too dumb to notice... shocking as usual. Almost as shocking as the opening up an entire ocean.

Let me guess, you missed that whole thing? Were you looking for Republicans under your bed while they played you like a fiddle?

Me thinks soo.... Now go get your shine box rookie.

Evidently, you didn't read your own cited article. It's nowhere near as simple or vast as you claim. It's also not the topic of this page or the topic we were discussing. It's just another one of your pathetic attempts to divert attention hoping to skate by without responding to my challenge.

Now explain the Keystone delay. I'll give you a clue.

It has nothing to do with the Atlantic and everything to do with votes.

Now explain the Keystone delay.

[-] 2 points by turbocharger (1756) 2 years ago

No, nothing is "simple" when its the loyal idiots defending their own idiot leaders.

But the other ones, on the other hand, well, there is just no excuse for that, right?

The Keystone Pipeline already exists! You knucklehead!

The demoCRAPS are only making a big "Dog and Pony Show" out of the supplimentary phase 4 "XL pipeline". They need to throw a little red meat to their gullible political groupies to cover their asses.

Glad you posted that.

The posters here who are trying to justify us voting for a candidate in the duopoly, do understandably get frustrated. I know I wouldn't want their job for all the tea in China. At least some of them can take solace in being on the payroll.

[-] 2 points by SerfingUSA (451) 2 years ago

That photo of Obama in the USAtoday article is hilarious! He's strolling in front of the Keystone construction, smiling ear to ear! Does that photo look like Obama's against Keystone?

The DNC groupies are as quiet as a church mouse about the Atlantic oil drilling. They sure like to cherrypick their topics.

See reply below. Then explain this.

Republicans rake in cash from oil-and-gas industry

By Zack Colman - 08/08/13 03:42 PM EDT

ExxonMobil topped the list at $344,500 in contributions, $304,500 of which went to Republicans.

Koch Industries, owned by the billionaire brothers who have often backed conservative candidates and causes, came in second by giving $297,000 to Republicans and $5,000 to Democrats.

Rounding out the top five were Marathon Petroleum ($226,000), Halliburton ($161,500) and Chevron ($153,501).

The mining industry has also heavily favored Republicans, giving 83 percent of a total $476,000 in donations to GOP candidates.

The Electric utility industry was less skewed toward Republicans. Such PACs have contributed $3.1 million, handing checks to GOP candidates two-thirds of the time. http://thehill.com/policy/energy-environment/316147-gop-candidates-rake-in-oil-and-gas-money

Next.

See reply below. Then explain the 6 year delay and the recent Senste passage 62-36.

I'll give you another clue.

It passed almost exclusively along party lines.

"Go East Young Man", heretofore the new drill rigs start arriving, and before the tarballs wash up on your feet. Then try again, 'voting to make a difference,' especially if Obama gets his TPP passed.

[-] 1 points by SerfingUSA (451) 2 years ago

What's your reading comprehension level, 2nd grade? I have already explained it!

The delay is because of pending lawsuits, not the demoCRAPS. The courts have hit the pause button on construction. The duopoly sees this delay as an opportunity to make it look like they're delaying it. It's a phoney political brouhaha for their gullible groupies.

Now, Serf. You pathetic little multiple ID coward in a twit sack. What a pathetic and desperate attempt to dance your way around the issue and avoid having to give yet another straight answer. You know damn well that we've been typing about Keystone XL. It's been covered in detail for 6 years and referenced here many times just within the last 60 days.

For example: http://occupywallst.org/forum/look-who-didnt-vote-on-keystone/#comment-1055909

That KEYSTONE project has been DELAYED for 6 years and counting. And for damn good reasons too. Environmental, legal, and ethical.

Now, for the SIXTH TIME, I'm challenging YOU SerfingUSA, YOU turbocharger, YOU Shule, YOU johannus, YOU flip, who by the way are no more than two or three individuals using multiple IDs to make your numbers greater to grow a spine and give a straight answer.

WHY HAS KEYSTONE XL BEEN DELAYED FOR SIX YEARS AND COUNTING?

[-] 1 points by MattHolck0 (3867) 2 years ago

there has been a study flow of airstrikes out of the US for sometime now

[-] 1 points by SerfingUSA (451) 2 years ago

The Keystone pipeline has NOT been delayed. The primary Keystone pipeline has already been built and operating for years.

ONLY the supplementary XL phase is tied up because of pending lawsuits in courts. Once again, it is NOT the demoCRAPS who are delaying the supplementary "XL phase", it is the pending lawsuits by ranchers, farmers, private land owners and environmental groups.

If the courts rule in favor of XL, the DemoCRAPS will IMMEDIATELY stop their phoney hullabaloo and allow XL. Once again, this is just political theater for the gullible minions.

DKA, the people on this forum are not hillbillies from "Coon Rapids".

We are ALL fully aware of the definition of "Serf".

"SerfingUSA" refers to what Wall st, corporations and the ruling class are doing to the the 99%.

I am here to stand with Occupy and support it. You are here to undermine and subvert it with 1% owned establishment politics.

[ EDIT ] "I am here to stand with Occupy and support it."

How in the world do you support occupy? How in the world do you undermine the 1% ?

By opting out? Just exactly how does that undermine the 1% ?

Notice the startling fact = 2/3 who are disgusted by government opt out and corp(se)oRATists gain strength in government - in gaining strength they push through approval for the continuation for keystone which "HAD" been stalled for six years.

So - AGAIN - how exactly has opting out undermined the 1% ?

EDIT -> You may as well screw yourself up the ass with a rat tail file - you will get faster personal satisfaction - rather than waiting for the captured state and federal governments ( which you have given away by opting out) to finish screwing you to death.

They aren't my people - I told you and everyone else that these assholes need to be removed from office along with all members of ALEC/Koch.

These are some of the same assholes I said to remove from office many times - and your opt out campaign has allowed to stay in office.

Note: No approval for the last six years due to enough opposition to to it - then along comes the 2014 election opt-out and things like Keystone which have been successfully denied for six years are now being approved. Where were the losses in office holders - where were the gains in office holders? Losses = democratic seats Gains = RepubliCON seats. Results? Keystone approval to be followed by Atlantic drilling? to be accompanied by fast track for TPP?

You are still ignoring the Atlantic Ocean aspect of the energy equation.

We all agree that Republicans passed the keystone line. And obama will most likely sign it because thats what hes paid to do.

But you keep ignoring the massive move of opening up the Atlantic, and have been since it happened.

Because it doesnt fit your narrative of the he said/she said, neeener neener high school paradigm that you operate in.

The loyalist numbers are dwindling on both sides. You have to make a decision of which side you would like to have been on when history writes itself.

The side that clung to teh status quo? Or the side that pushed through massive change.
