DON'T FORGET TO "LIKE" BEE-OTCH OF THE DAY ON FACEBOOK!
Name: The Republican Party
Occupation: right-winged morons
Last Seen: Washington, DC
Bee-otched For: getting owned by Obama
It looks like a ton of ground won't be torn up for oil. At least for now.
Yesterday, President Obama vetoed the controversial Keystone/XL Pipeline bill that would have created the pipe that would go from Canada to Louisiana and would have transported tarsand to be refined.
True, the Republicans all claim that the Keystone project would have created jobs, but it would have created more pollution instead since it's getting oil out of sand. Another good reason why we need to invest in much-safer methods such as wind turbines and solar energy that are better for the environment.
When I think of the Keystone project, I think about some of the environmental disasters that have plagued the country for decades. Look at the BP oil spill. Look at all the fracking in Oklahoma that has given that state multiple earthquakes. Look at Centralia, PA, a town whose underground coal mines and the fire that still ravages underneath the city from an accident over 50 years ago caused everybody to move out. There's even a few ghost towns such as Picher, OK and Gilman, CO all abandoned because of environmental concerns.
As long as the oil industry runs the world, they want the Keystone project to move forward. To them, it's profit over the safety of Americans. Remember, folks, global warming is a concern, and as long as this pipeline is not built, us Americans can breathe a little better.
Last week, idiotic former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani made heads spin when at a fundraiser, he lambasted the President for "not caring about America". BULLSHIT. Without this pipeline, Americans won't have to worry about earthquakes or breathing bad air. Repukes also cry about the so-called lack of jobs being created. Well, people need to maintain wind turbines, don't they?
Yes, Obama cares about us. He sure does a better job of caring than Bush, whose stupidity caused 9/11 in the first place. If it weren't for Dubya, Giuliani wouldn't be "America's Mayor" in the first place. Instead, he'd be just another Repuke asshole who shut down all the sex shops and strip clubs in his hometown who also cheated on his wife. Nice.
The only pipeline the Republicans should worry about is being rammed in the ass by the Democrats.
