I would like to see the actual, factual plan that trans-canada has for the end product. Exactly where the refined oil is going to be sold to and where are all the waste product is going to be disposed of. You know if they are pumping down billions of gallons of sludge tar oil with toxic additives in it there has to be billions of tons of toxic waste removed from that sand tar oil. WHERE ARE THEY GOING TO GET RID OF THAT WASTE????? In other words Trans-Canada will pump toxic waste across our country, in exchange for a few temporary jobs to put the pipe line in, have that toxic oil refined in Texas, ship it to China and maybe sell us a small amount of it, and then pollute our country with the left over waste products all the while this country takes the risk of a toxic oil spill that could potentially affect millions of people. As far as leaks go ask the people in Montana about the leak in the Yellow river where a whole lot of oil leaked out before it was seen. Who pays for the mess, we do. who pays for the loss of water, we do. Who is stuck with the toxic waste. WE ARE. Who makes the money, Trans-Canada AND THE G.O.P. There was a dust bowl once you know. The only thing that held the midwest together was the aquifier. Now those aquifer's don't ever refill. The water in them is from millions of years ago, deposited over millions of years. We are emptying them more and more every year. The ogalla aquifer in Texas is almost empty. And you Texans are not getting our Great Lakes Water. You waste it you do without. Why risk it with this pipeline. If canada wants it they can refine it in Canada and leave the waste there also. There is a lot more to this pipeline than a few jobs, but then you can't expect the GOP people to do any research. They just scream a lot. Thank You Barack Obama for thinking beyond today, i am sure it would have been easier to just say sure build it and there by not let the GOP use the ignorance of uninformed people to beat him over the head with it. If Romney makes President every Democrat and smart Independant should start keeping all their money at home, grow a garden, buy nothing for Romney's 4 years and do like the GOP. just say NO. AT least when the drought hits this year we'll eat. And they can eat CAKE.
