Scary but true  
Why do you people keep making me defend this… What you say is not true; you need to do your research. Transporting oil through a pipeline has a significantly lower carbon footprint than say by truck. You need to get your facts straight--sorry. This doesn’t mean I change my vote but we at least need to be honest in our disagreements. +5
I woke up this morning wondering how many pipelines are in safe operation today. I was stunned at how many. There are 30,000 miles of 2” to 8” pipelines and 95,000 miles of 8” to 42” diameter pipelines. If the Obama administration can oversee the safe operation of these pipelines? Surly the president is not so incompetent that one more would end the planet. +1
VA, Canada would like to sell its oil to America. This will take a pipeline as it costs too much (non-product cost) to send it by truck. Some of us are afraid it might be bad for the environment even though it would help employ a quarter million Americans and the taxes from the sale would help fund Canadian healthcare. I hope this helps :-)  
• KY44 I hate repeating myself but oil is a global commodity. First, if it is sold here or not here it still lowers the overall price of fuel (to include that sold in Kentucky) because of the laws of Supply and Demand. Second, there is a transportation cost (also called non product cost) that makes it very unlikely they would sell it to other countries. If Canada just wanted to export it and not help Americans they would pump it to their west coast and sell it to Asian countries like China and Japan. You guys keep roping me in to defending this :-( +2

Not likely, so where did you read this? Oil is a global commodity. First, if it is sold here or not here it still lowers the overall price of fuel because of supply and demand. Second, there is a transportation cost (also called non product cost) that makes it very unlikely they would sell it to other countries. I can’t believe you guys are making me defend this project. +4
While I voted against it in the poll, even the liberal CBS news reports 20,000 jobs now and up to 250,000 jobs upon completion. +1
I understand, the Crusades/Jihads have killed many. Yet religion or no religion humans kill humans ever since Cain killed Able  
Umad, the question was No Religion not Atheism; the USSR was Secular  
The secular USSR would beg to differ--11M dead from their five year plans +2
So you would rather see a thousand women raped then to see a single individual falsely behind bars? That is why it is supposed to be the level of reasonable doubt.  
Just make certain you inform your employees of your esthetical standards and give them your best wishes to have them steal from you. +1
LOL not if you ask Bill Clinton  
Neither, however Oprah is the smarter of the two so I guess if I could change my answer it would be her. +1
True, people may hate it but it is true +1
Better than our current President :-) +6
With respect, there may be treatments but there is no cure. So says the man who lost his brother to leukemia, mom with breast cancer, and girlfriend with brain cancer. +3
Do you want everyone knew all your secrets? What woman wants everyone to know what she has done and with whom? Governments are no different in diplomacy. +1
Watch this S Car Go :-) +4
Who loves my kids more and is in a better position to know what is best for them, me or a bureaucrat--me of course :-) +7
A hard one +1
I have always had amicable break ups. +1
Looks like we need to move to Japan ;-) +6
A murder that goes free will likely kill more innocent people than just one +5
