They were awesome...but so was God who wieghed in with his own 5.6 opinion that shook not only Oklahoma , but Texas as well.
I hope all those right wing christian repuglicans AND
President Obama as well heard him loud and clear.
Hey, Gov.Perry, look on the bright side, he's communicating with you as well..again.
Thanks Cal.

Let's hope this protest does some good. Oil from Canada's tar sands is a terrible idea all around. We should be investing in renewable energy instead.

We are OWS and our world. This our country and our future on this planet, we refuse to allow the Oligarchy to continue to destroy any hope for a future in which we and our children can breath the air, eat the produce and drink the water without being slowly poisoned for their greed and insanity. Call for a Nation wide General Strike, to get their attention. Force the issue to stop dismissing the Little People, US.

So, whose interests will be protected? Ours, or big oil's? With their money and their lobbyists and what's at stake for them, I'm sure they're hard at work pushing for the pipeline. Kudos to the protesters for representing the interests of their fellow citizens and the environment!
