"After realizing she'd been misled into signing a contract with TransCanada, Susan Scott took the company's money and buried it in the ground. Then she joined the movement to stop the pipeline. "

news programs need to be covering this struggle (let's give up five minutes of talking about the debates and photo ops)

Humankind has not woven the web of life.
We are but one thread within it.
Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.
All things are bound together.
All things connect.
Chief Seattle, 1854

The Big Oil corporations that have bought our government own theirs too. One of the more ingenious ploys of the master class is to generate controversy so that the slaves are all pointing fingers at each other rather than realizing the problem is the master.

Heard yesterday that Canada has stopped part of the pipeline for safety reasons. Do we really need this line through our country so a company can save money shipping the oil? Most of the people in Canada don't want it over/under their lands, the tar sand operation is not good for their water and resources and so TransCanada wants to bring it to our country and knows with enough $$ to the right people they can get it done. Our country will not see one ounce of the oil it is all to be shipped to other countries. The jobs created will mostly be to dig the ditches, lay the pipe, and cover it up - all operations will be done by computers and probably from Canada --- yes, digging ditches is honorable work but how many people are able or willing to do that? There may be a few refinery jobs when the oil is ready to send through the pipe which I have read will be in a few years if all goes well with the company.

The problem with eminent domaine is that it leaves us all vulnerable to any big conglomerant with enough money to buy the politicians in order to steal whatever they feel will make the more money ant anyone's expense. It is unfair, unconstitutional, and should be illigal!!!
