Pipeline Pipe Dreams

I don't know what Obama is smoking but if he thinks he can convince the American public that the Keystone XL Pipeline shouldn't be built then he'd better quit smoking. 60% Favor Building Keystone XL Pipeline. The administrations position is that
"The White House sent new signals Sunday that President Barack Obama may be forced to kill TransCanada Corp.'s Keystone XL oilsands pipeline if his administration is forced to make a decision on the project within 60 days. Gene Sperling, a senior economic adviser to Obama, told CNN that legislation requiring a final ruling on Keystone XL within two months could doom the pipeline because there's not enough time to complete a new environmental review."
Hat Tip: Small Dead Animals The frantic refusal to even consider the pipeline which could help businesses from all industries and create many jobs is puzzling. One assumes it is because pipelines are so unusual and need special environmental studies since they are so rare. ... Oh Really?
A quick google and you can see that nearly all the inhabited areas of the United States of America are riddled with pipelines. We need this energy. It is from a friendly neighbor and ally rather than a middle eastern dictatorship and as my husband explains in this article - Create wealth, not jobs. Keystone XL pipeline would boost prosperity, not government -
TransCanada's Keystone XL pipeline is a massive job- and wealth-creation project. The pipeline will snake its way 1,700 miles from Alberta to the Gulf coast with stops in Oklahoma and Illinois. Keystone will create $7 billion in investment without any additional congressional spending. It is exactly the sort of massive construction project Mr. Obama demanded from Republicans in September, with one important exception: It’s private.
Read the whole article, it's very good in my completely biased opinion. The long and short of it is, the Keystone Pipeline would be a huge help to the American economy and her people. That Obama wishes to stop it from helping us is unforgivable and hopefully makes him unelectable next year.

An Explanation

Dear Reader, I owe you an explanation as to why my posting at this blog has dropped off. Chaos. Chaos. And more chaos. In the one year and three months since my father died, I've gone into a tailspin, coped with every older female in my family being in and out and in and in and in hospital for various ailments and surgeries and self-inflicted injuries. We've added new pets (three) to the family, we've traveled to visit family up and down the coast, my husband went awol to promote his book, I've had a personal illness (mild), and the regular stresses of caring for a family which includes a child with both ADHD and SID. Worst of all, I miss my daddy beyond words. There are other shoes which must drop but I promise in the new year to do better. Thank you for your patience and my God bless you this holiday season and bring you joy in the new year.
