    and where he is wrong about it is that Canada wants to sell us the oil that passes through the keystone pipeline as opposed to selling it to china…so it would be our oil passing through the pipeline, so the oil would be coming to us…

    False. “Canada” doesn’t own that oil, because Canada does not have a socialist economy. That oil belongs to TransCanada, and they want to sell that oil on the world market. They themselves have cited the a.) refining and b.) global transport infrastructure of the Gulf of Mexico as the appeal of the Keystone pipeline.

    They’re looking to expand their customer base across the globe; no corporation sets out to devalue it’s own product out of some misguided spirit of nationalist (or continental, in this case) loyalty. Of course they’ll sell it to China, if China (after transportation costs) is outbidding America. It’s very unlikely that, for the next ~20 years, demand for oil will do anything other than grow in China and India, while the direction of American demand is more uncertain.

    want to know why gasoline is so high in california? You can thank the liberal california legislature…you see, once upon a time, the oil companies owned the refineries, so they drilled oil from the ground, sent it to their refineries, created gasoline, and then sold the gasoline to the gas stations. Only four people made money, the oil companies, the gas stations, the state goverment and the federal government.

    First, California demanded the oil companies included all these addidtives, which no one else in the world required, which cost a great deal of money, which has to be added on to the cost of producing gasoline…

    Then the liberal politicians came up with another great idea…make the oil companies sell their refineries to other people…surely adding a middleman between the oil companies and the gas stations couldn’t possibly increase the cost of gasoline…

    and of course, as is the history of the liberal, whenever they get an idea it always ends up costing us more in the end.

  • Matthew

    BTW, it is true in OPEC nations that their oil is, first and foremost, national property (aka the people’s property). This is why they have cheap gas (that, and lower cost of production). When I see oblivious posters here saying things like “Canada wants to sell their oil to America,” and actually viewing this as a good thing, I become convinced that these people would embrace a more socialist approach to domestic energy extraction… so long as you don’t call it socialism, of course. Find a Frank Luntz-style spinmaster to re-brand it as “Energy Patriotism,” and suddenly Joe Sixpack is on board.

  • Stan T.

    @Matthew

    Wrong again…because when Obama refused to approve the keystone pipeline, They threatened that if we didn’t want to buy their oil, they would simply build a pipeline west to the coast and sell it to the chinese. In truth they would rather sell it to their neighbor than to china…I’m guessing you got your information from MSNBC…

  • Matthew

    Cognitive dissonance; a working class who have made themselves shills for neoliberal policy, while simultaneously loathing neoliberal policy in practice, particularly free trade. :) :) :)

    They? WHO THE HELL IS THEY? That isn’t Canada’s oil! Stop spewing bumper sticker nonsense to me, and look at TransCanada’s own plans. They don’t need to build a freaking pipeline to the Gulf of Mexico if they just want to sell oil exclusively on the American market; again, it’s their own public statement that they want to more efficiently sell diesel on the global market.

  • Matthew

    If you want to make a pro-Keystone argument (other than the jobs created) that actually makes sense, then you can make the case that, for example, by increasing North American share of the world market, it conversely lowers Iranian share of the market, and thus reduces the noise they create when they decide to act crazy. This is important for price stability; it does not, however, mean that you get cheap gas just because the oil happens to be coming from a closer geographic location, especially when it’s from such an inefficient source.

    Sheesh

  • Matthew

    Sure, one more comment before I GO:

    Canada is not looking to sell ‘their’ oil to America, TransCanada is looking to sell their crude to refineries in Texas who, in turn, have a variety of sources in mind, including conversion to diesel for sale to Europe, where diesel demand is high, a goal most efficiently achieved by moving their oil to Gulf Coast refineries, as opposed to Midwest refineries.

    Sheesh!

    If the oil is the property of the people in OPEC nations then how do they have poor people in their nations?

    I think that all of the loons have moved to pot-legal states and are wasted beyond belief. Why bother posting the numbers if these crackheads only see what they want to see, and see them wrong at that?? Kool-Aid by the tractor-trailer load, rail car and shipping vessals(?). The mods can just make up numbers and the loons will still read them the wrong way. Not one MSNBC show beat Fox in the 25-54 demos Thursday. But, somehow, Shep came in #2??? wtf?

    And, HLN kicks MSNBC/CNN ass during the day!

    The Opec cartel cuts 1 billion barrels off production because of increase production oil worldwide. The EPA mandates these 12 different blends. Obama loves exective order why not get rid of all these blends down to two with the use of the pen. Bush did it 2007 and 2008 why cant Obama ??? ND state is booming unemployment under 4%. We got so much natural gas now comapnies want to start exporting it. Of course it has to go through the EPA, but why export it why not use it here? Obama loves investments why invest in converting cars, trucks over to natural gas and building the structures to support nation wide natural gas ? Many how good paying jobs would that create ? Obama says he for all of the above, but thats only for above ground anything underground forget about it.

    When it comes to the radio, I, like Bill O’Reilly,

    why did you say you like O Reilly on the radio. He is not on it. To pretend you are fair and balanced..

    I had to get that fun fact in. Good-morning

    You are right. The oil should go to St Louis . But they have better storms on the Gulf coast.

    It may have nothing to with the outcome, but I can’t stomach the part where a judge pretends to know what’s best for the patient and people around him than an expert medical professional. This is what’s sinking this country: lawyers. All 3 branches of the federal government are populated/overpopulated by lawyers. What kind of separation of powers is that?
