Dear PW: Why not probe Stark and McNerney why they voted to block the Keystone Pipeline which would create over 20,000 jobs?
Original post made by why? on Dec 18, 2011
They both...not surprisingly...voted AGAINST the Keystone pipeline (as did most other like-minded America-hating Democrats.)
Pleasanton Weekly Editors...here is your chance to actually be caught practicing a "random act of journalism" ... by probing them as to why they ... and other democrats... hate this country so much they they want to bring it to its knees and below?
Here is the Roll Call House vote >>> Web Link

Keystone pipeline is, perhaps, one of the most damaging designs in pipeline in quite sometime. A slurry going over several thousand of miles? Are we that desperate? Sadly, yes.

By your comments, I assume your preferred design -- same position as the dangerous democrat environmental extremists -- would be ... to require the pipeline to be underground instead.
Underground pipelines are exponentially more costly and infinitely more difficult to maintain especially when leaks occur. Also, the pipelines corrode much faster when underground.
But you'd most likely insist they be underground if they are even allowed by democrat congress at all.
Your comment that "we are desperate" for energy is correct...and the reason we are desperate is because the effing democrats are against America's energy independence and economic strength.
If Joe Biden had his way, we would not even have the Alaska pipeline. He voted against it.
I submit to you that America is facing an ENEMY FROM WITHIN as dangerous as alQaeda, or even moreso, and this enemy is the DEMOCRAT PARTY.

You think any of these politicians really have a choice in how they vote? Republican or Democrat are all guided by their caucuses or lobbyists. That's what any probe will figure out.
