    You are a little off. The only benefit in holding a national debt is in security against the country(ies) you owe it too. Those wishing you'd repay your debt are not likely to destroy any chance of you repaying it. However, the USA does not need that security, so it is of little value to us.

    The jobs are temporary except for the cleanup crews needed after the inevitable leaks. The pipeline companies record on leaks is miserable. Not a month goes by without another one popping up. That's why the Canadians have refused to let a pipeline to the west coast be built. Why are they so much smarter than we are?

    Canadians care about their country, but some Republicans clearly don't care about the U.S.A. It's one thing to not care, but it's another thing to actively try to destroy the nation and that's what some Republicans want.

    LOL. This is completely absurd. Jobs grow jobs. To bad for America Obama doesn't understand that.

    Silly. All construction jobs are temporary. Finish one move on to another.

    And pipeline companies "record on leaks" is not "miserable".

    Yep. Canada doesn't have any pipelines. They would never allow such a thing. Oh, wait a minute. I found an article that says they have had them since 1853. Still have them and are still building them. I guess that shoots your silly theory down unless Canadians don't care about their country. LOL.

    No question about it and don't forget we want to starve kids, kill seniors, and pollute the air

    Actually the BC Premier is for the pipeline but wants to be sure safety standards are met. An oil pipeline will also stretch from Alberta to the Canadian Maritime provinces.

    Canadians are not afraid to either drill for oil or export it, which is largely why the economy is doing so well.

    See the part in red? That's the difference between Canadians and America's Republicans. The repubs don't give a damn about safety standards.
