Obama caves to stupidity again
By denying the Keystone pipeline, Pres. Obama has denied as many as 100,000 jobs to Americans and thousands more in peripheral services associated with a construction project this ambitious. There are maybe three reasons why Obama would not allow millions of barrels of oil from Canada to be transported to our Gulf refineries:
1- Stupid environmentalists, anarchists, and other assorted crazies that make up Obama's voting core reject any fossil-fuel associated endeavor on global warming grounds.
2- China warned Obama not to compete for Canada's oil. The Chinese want it badly and hold most of our debt, and therefore Obama's testicles in their tightly gripped fists.
3- Obama hasn't finished punishing America for past racial and imperial transgressions. Americans who've enjoyed relative prosperity on the backs of minorities in this and other countries deserve to suffer smartly for crimes against humanity our grandfathers committed on our behalf.
So basically there are no good reasons for not allowing the Keystone XL pipeline to go forward. Given that it'll cost America at least 100,000 jobs, this might be the most monumentally stupid, of a lot of monumentally stupid, decisions Obama has made to harm America.
