    that you decided to respond by focusing on the single state that negotiated a holiday tells me everything i need to know about how this conversation is going to go.

    in the end it won't matter.. your side will lose... the pipeline will be built.( most of it is already finished)

    who?... Kansas?

    i would guess other tax revenues besides property taxes.
    then in 10 years, they'll start receiving those too


    why do you care so much about Kansas?.. they negotiated the deal, so they seem to be fine with it ( there are some folks threatening to challenge the tax holiday in court, though)

    Texas and Oklahoma has increased their combined economies by 6 billion .. all due to the southern leg of the project.
    6 billion in 17 months... let that sink in for a minute while you rant about there being "no rewards"

    Wow, Kansas got a crap deal. I wouldn't be surprised if some well paid for politicians eventually get elected in the other states that will mysteriously push for more tax breaks for Keystone.

    McDonald's starting wage for a know-nothing burger flipper is $15+ pr/hr. $17 in North Dakota. No one who whines about the minimum wage can contest the pipeline with a shred of integrity.

    No I didn't say that. I say that we will be running out over the next 100 years. No-one knows the exact date when we will run out.

    Reardless, oil is a finite resource. In 50 years time, when we realize that something like air travel will only ever be economical with fossil fuels, would you rather have 50 years worth of oil left or none? Excessive usage of such a finite resource is unsustainable and irresponsible towards future generations.

    Forty years ago we were running out of oil but now have more proven reserves than then. "Rumors of my death have been exaggerated"

    Did you even read my post or did you have a canned response ready to paste in???
