    I did find a web site that is acceptable.............the one you linked to that clearly showed that you lied.

    Like Bill O'Reilly, I imagine that Rick Perry is also baffled by tides





    Edited to add: I see from your link that O'Reilly and Perry are not the only ones confused . . . . . . ("the oil" is not going to China, and the WSJ is still promoting the 20,000 jobs lie). Clearly, propagandists never give up, despite how badly they've been 'outed'.

    The key here is that because of NAFTA and the Free Trade Zone.. its far more profitable for the oil companies in Alberta.

    I don't object to the pipeline.. I object to the political liars playing the US public... Its benefit to the Americans is minimal.
    Well whether it is 20,00 jobs or 200 jobs can be debated indefinitely but one thing is certain, there are no new jobs.

    It's also safe to say that there will be more crony capitalism and more Solyndras. You make your choice and you live with it.

    If a company can't move and process 700,000 barrels of oil per day with a labor force of less than a thousand people, they should get out of the business..

    But, you are right.. you make the decision and live with it.

    Whatever.

    Ad hominem attacks do not create jobs or supply energy to the country.

    I think you need another four years of Barrack Obama before you really learn your lesson, and of course it's a lesson America's grandchildren (if they have any) will learn as well.

    Nor do they win debates, so why do you continue to employ them in lieu of rational argument?

    Let's face facts here, folks -- the right has gotten caught in so many lies on this particular subject that they no longer want to talk about the truth, but about some imagined impact upon 'the children'. While calling those that have successfully identified their lies as people 'needing to learn a lesson'.

    That's a little bit scary.

    Huh? You were attacking Rick Perry and, for some obscure reason, Bill O'Reilly. Who was I making an ad hominem attack against?

    Where do you find any error in my analysis?

    The 'scary' part has not yet begun.

    More scare tactics.

    You guys all act like TransCanadian was making some huge corporate sacrifice bringing oil into the US. That's crap. They obviously saw a chance to make some big money going to Texas instead of British Columbia. They're not going to give up on those $$$ easily. The "going to China" line is just that, a line, and not much different than "Do you come here often?" as to it's hopeful outcome.
