who gives a crap if our oil goes into the XL. Bottom line is this country needs the jobs. And there will be an pile of jobs created by this pipeline. And a bunch will be long term jobs. If this administration wanted to be hero's they would sign on to the XL pipeline but force all materials to be U.S. made product.

lynn helms can tell you whatever he wants. I work in the industry and I'm telling you they aren't being used anymore. Drilling fluids are very expensive and they now have continuous loop technology to reclaim most of the drilling fluids. what your thinking of are cuttings pits. these are of no concern. they are cuttings mixed with flyash and water. they are not the pits of yesteryear which your thinking of.

Boy, will that pipeline help Canada get rid of its toxic oil. Say, did anyone see that report on CBS news two days ago on the southern portion of the XL pipeline? I notice that none of the papers are carrying that one. You can see the video is you wish by going to the CBS news site. Oh, and if you want, you can go to the Missoula paper from a week or so ago and see an article on the increase in gas prices when pipelines are completed. Yep, they show that if the XL is completed our gas prices will increase anywhere from 20-40 cents because of it. Now, the spills the XL will create will be monumental. But, like the spills in ND, they will not be reported. The Northern XL benefits Canada, China, and Dutch Shell. It hurts the US. Now, that is a fact. Oh, and don't forget that we are currently exporting the good Bakken crude to Canada and that amount will increase because Canada wants to refine the "good" Bakken crude and not their own garbage.

A few years back there was great concerns for the depletion of our natural resources. The thought was to use others oil and protect what we have. Now it is drill baby drill and to*****with Federal/National resources--- get it all now. I wonder how Teddy is feeling now?

And its really a good thing that Obama cannot get his hands on the North Dakota Republicans..

Seems we are producing oil "in spite" of Obama regulations and the refusel to put in the Keystone Pipeline..

Put that in your pipe and stoke it Obama..
