    Slightly OT,but in South Dakota,Trans Canada can use eminent domain to take land for the pipeline and they have set rules for the construction workers about booze and also workers aren’t allowed to have guns. They may kill Keystone XL all by their lonesomes. Guffaw!

    In such areas..make the front pages of everything..and the headline news. Go after the children..of the ‘biggies’..in each corp. bounding about..making money..upon the lives of all we..little, powerless people. We can be dead, or dying and it cannot be traced to them. You fireup..a large gaggle of the truly educated..and march over and sit on top of the pipelines..or whatever..is being shoved through..little town America. What might you carry? I suggest the pictures of each member of the poisen-cadres..children..or teens..and if they are not pictures..a written legend..explain that mr and mrs. so and so have 3 children..who have not been NEAR..any of the contaminated places..nor will they EVER..be allowed to..camp out..with the protestors. Lets see..how many energy corp.executives..want the evidence of their familys..being shown to be….AWAY/Protected..screened..from such crap. It can be done..and you must take the game..to THEIR court. Power is in..speaking truth..always truth..to those who think they are..worth more..as humans..then..we..the little people. Under-educated powerfuls..screw them!
