Eminent domain should only be used for highways and public easements should only be used for sidewalks and public utilities, not private companies especially foreign owned private companies.
    Is that for the Whole Range that the pipeline runs and with multiple states?

    Yes. Private property rights matter more than what private companies want. If a private company wants your land or wants to use it then they should pay you what you want or find someone else who will sell or rent land to them.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Yea i still dont see much "right path light".... Other than a bunch of temporary jobs, low paying jobs, and a **** ton of oil leaks, and little benefit to the US when it comes to energy resources.

    Lets not forget the properties that are forcefully taken by a private business and not just any business a foreign owned business.Basically the US government saying that Canadian company has more of a right to your property than you do.

    It is unclear how much the vote will influence President Obama, whose administration is still considering TransCanada’s permit application to cross the Canada-U.S. border. The State Department recently issued a draft environmental impact statement suggesting the oil sands would get developed even if Obama vetoed the permit, but environmentalists have challenged that analysis.....snip~

    Senate backs Keystone Pipeline in bipartisan vote

    It would appear Baucus is sending a message to Obama. Since Obama really hasn't been able to create any jobs. But rather lose em. Like you I think Obama will pass it and then look for a way to take credit for the jobs.
    I think many would find it foolish to tout 5 to 6 thousand TEMPORARY jobs as a major achievement. I doubt that jobs will be much of a factor in his decision. Maybe if the Republicans promised to pass his infrastructure bill he would have a reason to approve the pipeline. Fat chance of that though. I think you and the "Ruskys" (who's steel the pipeline would be built with) are going to disappointed. Tell Putin we are sorry...ok?
