        Imagine a moonscape the size of Florida...

            As the environmentalists protest and leave trash and vandalize everything in sight.

              Let's see if I've got this right: We should vote for this self-destructive project, for little gain for us, just so one Senator in Louisiana can keep her job? There's some brilliant "general welfare" for ya.

                    Cue the 'party of no' meme...

                    Obama dodged a bullet for now but it will have 63 votes in January. Getcha popcorn ready.

                      Interesting. I guess the Dems figure they already lost the Senate. What's the point?

                        Supporters of the Keystone XL Pipeline herald it as a job-creating machine, producing as many as 119,000 jobs.
                        But only 3,900 workers will actually be required to build the pipeline to carry oil from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico, according to the U.S. State Department, and those jobs will only last for a year. There will be 35 permanent positions created.
                        TransCanada (TRP), the company seeking permission to build the pipeline, claims the effort will create 13,000 construction jobs.
                        But even TransCanada only expects that building the pipeline will take about 7 million hours of labor. That works out to about a year's worth of work for 3,400 workers. If the work were spread evenly across 13,000 workers, it would only mean three months of work for each.

                        You mean, it was all bull****? I'm shocked. Shocked, I tell ya.
