Noted. Thanks, Cal. Although Obama has stated many times that he will veto if it passes, only 4 more votes are needed in the Senate to override that veto. DINO's are adding up unfortunately.

When indigenous leaders are motivated to speak out, you know it's serious.

No they won't listen to them. Most probably serious civil disobedience will be necessary.
