And on a related note, does anyone really believe the Keystone XL pipeline isn't already a done deal?

This "chemical" subject is complicated but headlines like this always make me suspicious. There is no "Obama Interior Department". It is the American Interior Department.
On the other hand, why would the American Interior Department use anything from alec!!!!
Proper disclosure is being blocked by exactly one thing - and like so many of "our" OWS goals - is based on crapitalism owning democracy.


THE answer:


DISCONNECT CAPITALISM FROM DEMOCRACY
Do what 80% of Americans + 100 congressmen + 1309 mayors want

Virtually everything we want hinges on disarming our opponent –
……LEGALIZED CAPITALIST 1% GREED
by stopping the flood of bribes into our government.
by stopping the control – by their capitalism – of our democracy

We must not
DEMAND that we WANT THEM to give to US
We must
DEMAND GOALS THAT WE WILL ACHIEVE FOR OURSELVES


Because of the Supreme Court's decision,
we cannot accomplish anything significant, without FIRST -

Overturning Citizens United !!!
Ending Corporate Personhood !!!
and HJR29 is t he clearest path to this goal


80% of Americans already agree on it
as stated in the ABC/Washington Post poll

And in the the PFAW Poll -

85% of voters say that corporations have too much influence over the political system today.
77% think Congress should support an amendment to limit the amount corporations can spend on elections.
74% say that they would be more likely to vote for a candidate for Congress who pledged to support a
Constitutional Amendment limiting corporate spending in elections.

Our primary goal should be to elect representatives who support a constitutional amendment to reverse the Supreme Court decision Citizens United (2010) , that enables unlimited amounts of anonymous money to flood into our political system.
We don’t have to explain or persuade people to accept our position – …..we only have to persuade them to ACT based on their own position. Pursuing this goal will prove to the world that we, at OWS,
…..are a serious realistic movement, with serious realistic goals. Achieving this goal will make virtually every other goal –
…..jobs, taxes, infrastructure, Medicare – much easier to achieve –
…..by disarming our greatest enemy – GREED.


IT IS TIME FOR YOU TO ACT ----> JOIN US TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE


I feel that using the tactics of the NRA, the AARP, the TP, the anti-SOPA –
who all represent a minority – who have successfully used their voting power
and political pressure to achieve their minority goals -
is a straight path for us to success that cannot fail to enable us to
create and complete one task that the MAJORITY want.

True, it's the US Department of the Interior. They might have simply meant the "Obama Administration's DOI." Then again, it could have been worded like that to strengthen the article's anti-Obama slant.

And as to "why would the American Interior Department use anything from ALEC." Why wouldn't they?

to quote my friend W.C.
"I love alec - boiled, stewed or fried"

Okay, my curiosity has got the better of me. Why do you think the DOI wouldn't approve an ALEC-inspired bill?

Good quote.
