          The bottom line is survival. We need gas and oil to produce food for ourselves, animals, etc. I am opposed to the EPA, OSHA, anything that has a regulation over our lives. The federal government was charged to protect our borders and keep a standing army. The standing army is going due to downsizing our military. The borders are a joke, yet the government does not see fit to fight for our survival. We can do without the pipeline...which means do without gas and oil....then we can starve to death. I am against all this goobly goop that the government puts out. Less control is better.. I have pipelines on every piece of property our family owns........and have had for years.....this is all just scare tactics. Bring on the pipeline...let this country get back to work. All this scare tactics about WATER is nonsense, IMO.....but, some kooks out there think we are in such grave danger from a pipeline. I will never comprehend. The tar sands are in the earth naturally.. Why are they so poison in a pipeline? Since the tar sands are in the earth naturally, why does it pollute the water...it is all in the ground together. Makes no sense to me at all. But, apparently people for the pipeline are beating a dead horse.. As long as this president is playing politicss with the process, it is hopeless.

          Yeah, Sideliner--lets risk corruption of our drinking water and risk to our health, our land and our way of life so that a foreign company can turn a profit.
          Forget the rules and regulations that were put in place to protect the common person--all that is goobly goop---the company's bottom line is all that matters.

          Once again scare tactics. Never have appreciated the Sierra Club, now, I do not like it. The EPA is not for America. It is working against our country at the bidding of the president. This is all gobbly goop. I do hope the pipeline gets through, one way or the other. I have never seen so much fuss over so little, and it would help the economy. Go figure.
