    Except its BS..

    The construction of the pipeline will require 3200 to 4200 temporary jobs.. The refineries in Texas are already staffed and it won't take more than 300 to 400 people to monitor the pipeline.

    Yes, I know. I was just using Gills own argument to show how dishonest his post was.

    Oh... LOLOL

    Meanwhile, domestic energy production is rising and — astonishingly — import dependence is rapidly falling.

    In 2010, oil imports accounted for 49 percent of U.S. consumption, down from 60 percent in 2005. By 2035, imports could decline to 36 percent, projects the EIA.

    Severl US refineries on the East Coast and a large one in the Virgin Islands are closing or have closed already and the tanker industry is predicting a very slow year.

    Consider that Canada produces about 2.5 million barrel of oil per year and imports another million from Saudi arabi, Africa an /venezuea.. then exports 2/3 of their total crude to the US.

    More convincing than your claim that more than a million jobs are "paltry" but 20,000 jobs is HUGE!!!

    I'm shocked............ Your numbers are not even close. Canada produces almost 3.3 million barrels per DAY.

    Other than that incorrect comment, you quoted my post and totally ignored it in your reply.

    Not very good with satire, are you?

    But it's revealing that you admit to thinking that more than a million jobs is "paltry"
