    Eminent Domain is designed to be used when a few recalcitrant people refuse to provide a right-of-way that is for the common good. If a hundred landowners are smart enough to take money for the pipeline that will not even be visible a year after its installation, why should the entire project be held up by a few.

    A oil pipe line is not common good,especially one for export.

    No private company has any business using eminent domain especially a foreign owned entity. It doesn't matter if one property owner or a thousand refuse to sell.

    We'll have to agree to disagree on that one.

    Tell that to the liberals on the Supreme Court. They're the ones that made it legal.

    How is a pipeline for the fossil fuel sector a common good?

    If this is the case, highways, railroads, subways, city streets, power lines, stadiums, schools and all the rest also need to be opposed, also.
    I am not of the mind that a man is either of science or of religion. At his best and his worst, man exists in the misty glimmering where the falling angel meets the rising ape. That he chooses a direction from that point defines him as human.

    If there were suddenly no fossil fuel, you would starve to death within a month.

    No, because I would use a can of Ubik to create an energy source with a future; like fusion.

    Fossil fuels will become as extinct as their ancestors, eventually.
