Do you believe the railroads are trying hard enough to deliver rail cars in time for harvest?

  1. Yes
  2. Only recently
  3. Too little, too late
  4. Deliberately not

Thanks BIG LIBERALS, hold up the pipeline, keep as many oil trucks and rail cars clogging up our roads and rails as you can!! Don't try the "leak" argument, Alaska pipeline is an example of how pipelines are much more efficient than rails and trucks.......million miles of pipe underground in the US, few problems to speak of, but you hear about all of them, THANKS BIG LIBERAL MEDIA! One thing a liberal doesn't complain about is the natural gas pipes carrying their home heating fuel!!

Good one Baffledbyliberals; they only complain about the price of gasoline they put in their cars, trucks, boats and ski-doo's. Yep, Oil bad. Think about what a mess they would make if the Energy Resources were Nationalized.

Its the SAME STORY every year....no grain cars...but I think it is getting much worst...no improvement! Gee, when the grain prices are low...more cars, but if the grain prices are HIGH, less cars?....just another way to keep prices low for farmers!

See Baffledbyliberals, this is one subject we agree on. The media and hollywood stars who have no idea how the keystone pipe line would work just throw money at a subject and get their message out. It puts fear in people and then what do you know, the public is against it.

The USA has millions of miles of oil pipe lines and they are concerned about 1 more pipe line that would be fitted with newer technology and safer than previous pipe lines running from Alberta to the Gulf. The Media and Tree Huggers need to get a grip. They use oil everyday unfortunately they think it comes from the cell phone store, the gas station, they just don't know where it comes from.

You try to be positive "I do believe everyone is trying their best" and you get downvoted. Unreal. Complain, complain complain.

Tomorrows poll how about we all say something positive. It doesn't matter on what, just say, "It feels good to wake up today" or "Yah, the sun is shining"

Farmers take a hit from oil. kxl is just 1 more pipe yes but it is ten times larger and longer than many existing pipes. 2 pipes already exist 2 move the hardisty tar sand oil--1 moves south and another toward vancover. We can't afford kxl because oil products r too high now just from the bakken. Oil bought the cars 4 a premium and we pay 4 that premium with every oil product we buy. Take that 2 Wash. johnnie o. No kxl until oil stops leaking and the lies. Clean up in aisle Medora harold. Muk schnell.

If u can explain how moving tar sands oil 2 china makes economic sense--i am listening. In Alaska u cannot shoot (hunt) a firearm within a couple miles on either side of their pipe. Do u want 2 prohibit hunting on those thousands of square miles in the U.S.?

Legend......a pipe the size of keystone, 36', will all be buried. The only reason the Alaska pipe is above ground, is because the oil is 140 degrees, and it would melt the perma-frost, not in all places, just tundra areas! The reason you can't hunt within two miles of the elevated sections of that pipe, bullets flying around a live pipe aren't the best idea, small portions of that pipe are above ground, and Alaska has hunting areas that have never seen a human, find somewhere else to hunt schmuck! We don't want an oil spill on the ground do we?I mean it's not like oil came out of the ground, did it?

And legend.....the US borrows it's trillions from china, just maybe that's our little form of repayment, our oil is better than theirs and pretty much the rest of the world, North Dakota sweet crude, you should sell your apartment and move to Vermont! The worst spills there come from the batteries of a Prius....

Mitt Romney lost the election, and then completely disappeared.

There are myriad ways to help out and give back to the country you love, but with Mitt -- it's 'president or nothing.'

If Romney was so involved in American life that he merited becoming Commander-in-Chief, why did he promptly go back into hiding behind the locked doors of private investment banking?

In 2012, Mitt Romney teamed with the Repub National Committee, spent nearly ONE BILLION DOLLARS -- making it the most expensive failure in American Political history.

In 2012, Barack Hussein Obama teamed with the Dem National Committee, spent over ONE BILLION DOLLARS -- making it the most expensive failure in American Political history. and oh what a failure he's been.

NY Times reported that they each spent one billion dollars.

The problems we face today exist because the people who work for a living are outnumbered by those who vote for a living.

Vote Republican for a real change you can believe in!

Change the subject when railcars and harvest with a little oil mixed in.

It's amazing we could go back to the $$$$ spent in the last election.

Center........you must be right, it's not like the pipeline will employ close to a million people, for the initial construction, then you have all the people who would then work at the various compressor stations along the entire route. High paying skilled jobs, which will turn into billions in tax revenue, a lot of the states in the proposed route are hurting for jobs, from truck drivers to laborers, welders, engineers, equipment operators, safety people, YOUR FAVE, ENVIRONMENTAL INSPECTORS, x-ray technicians...whether our sweet ND crude gets a ride in the pipe or not, it's a step in the right direction for ND, the state needs more pipeline infrastructure, to alleviate some of the traffic on our highways......and you schmuck, oil does not freeze, ND sees temps that rival Barrow, AK, sometimes colder, sometimes not, never seen nor installed any kind of heat tracing on oil lines, just water......does the oil in your car freeze in the winter???? Idiot! Think mcfly, think!!

Creating a million jobs is by no means 'propaganda'!! However, what is propaganda, giving Solyndra billions of dollars of taxpayer money to waste on a technology that will never be able to keep up with our insatiable appetite for electricity. Oh and don't forget placing all kinds of new regs. in coal fired power plants, which means, retrofitting powerplants with new better equipment, which has to be paid for by who? That's right, the consumer, which then in turn gets handed over to a few buddies of the Prez. It's dirty on both sides, dem or rep, the world has been shaped by greed, I just don't need my govt. greedy, that's where you dems get totally lost!!!

BaffledbyBS- Did you even read the TransCanada/Keystone-xl website?

Where is this "close to a million jobs" claim coming from?
