    They try. Most companies that own the pipelines, are not the Big Oil companies. New pipelines would cost Big Oil more money. Their costs would go up in what they pay to the pipeline company. So... Big Oil fights new pipelines, and they get their political buddies, in both parties (Obama as well), to slow it down or kill them.

Today, drug dealing is still profitable in low income areas because new jobs have drastically been reduced. This is what is happening in North Dakota. I'd wager that in 30 years, and as long as the oil keeps flowing, it will become a big oil/drug state. When the oil stops flowing, it'll simply be a drug state.
    Okay. That makes sense. Thanks for responding.

    How many oil pipelines are running through America?

    Or under it?

    And people really wanted one to run from Canada to the Gulf Of Mexico?
    Accidents happen all the time with technology. How many car accidents do we have each year? Should we ban cars? No, we should hold people responsible for the cleanup, damages, and repair.

    I love the liberal reaction: "This must be happening everywhere! I bet I'm walking in it right now and don't know it!" Come on. It happens once and it is news because it is so rare.

    Re: ND farmer finds oil spill while harvesting wheat

    Here is a wiki that describes a pipeline 'leak' in a river in our area.
    Enbridge - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    As I understand it one monitors the amount of 'oil' that goes through one station and it should be the amount that reaches the next. My understanding, which is not accurately listed in Wiki is that the line burst. The line actually split over a short period of time, I recall that it was a few days. It was allowed to 'leak' for some time. They are still cleaning it up. It will never be really cleaned up, but the river will take the remaining oil to the lake, so no problem.

    It's weird that you'd put in quotations a statement nobody has made.

    No. He's illustrating a hypothetical summarization statement of Liberal reaction and it is therefore properly in quotation marks.

    We should bring the refineries to the oil instead of bringing the oil to the refineries. Wait, we can't do that, because the EPA won't approve construction.

    It's the usual Libbos fear mongering.

    "Be afraid! Be very afraid! The evil oil companies are gonna gitcha!!!"

    When I read you statement above, it seemed to be juxtaposed to the normal position of those that are Very Liberal as your "Lean" states you are. In your statement, it sounds like you're blaming higher profits and increased jobs on higher crime and drug use, where I normally hear that poverty and lack of jobs are the reason for crime and drug use.

    The question is: Am I wrong in my reading, or did I read it correctly?
    Just another excuse for more government control of the private sector.
