    Native Americans, Ranchers Take to National Mall to Protest Keystone Pipeline

    These are the people the Bundy supporters should be supporting not some deadbeat.Anyone who is for property rights should oppose the Keystone Xl do to their use of eminent domain. Especially the use of eminent domain by a foreign owned company. Do the supporters of the Keystone XL have their lips so firmly on the asses of big business that they can't see that this is wrong?

    Native Americans, Ranchers Take to National Mall to Protest Keystone Pipeline | Activism |
    On April 22, the first day of the protest, members of the group rode on horseback from the reflecting pool in front of the capitol to a camp on the National Mall, where they erected teepees, one of which will remain on display in the National Museum of the American Indian.
    Native Americans in Canada oppose tapping the Alberta tar sands for fossil fuels, citing the local environmental implications as well as their contribution to global warming. In the US, First Nations say the State Department has not adequately evaluated the effects the pipeline will have on their communities and sacred spaces. Ranchers and farmers spoke out against their land being confiscated under eminent domain to make way for the pipeline, and environmental problems the pipeline could cause once built.
    "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"

    Native Americans are the true definition of tree huggers, or planet earth worshipers. They aren't going to approve of any pipeline ever.

    The farmers and ranchers that are unfortunate enough to be in the path of the proposed pipeline really don't want that freaking eyesore anywhere their amber waves of grain. Even if it's buried underground, their fear of a leak ruing their water table is justified.

    Neither camp wants to roll over and allow the government to bully it's way through the center of this country.

    If you haven't guessed yet, I'm against the pipeline myself.
