Republicans jumped on the news that the Obama administration is delaying judgment on the Keystone XL pipeline by another six months.
Americans have already waited >4yrs for #KXL, time for POTUS to say yes, said a 11:14 a.m. tweet from the office of House Speaker Rep. John Boehner.

Who made 0bama KING? WTF.. BUILD THE SUMBICH ANYWAY!
“...time for POTUS to say yes, “
Never Freaking. Happen.
This serves the union pipeline workers right for supporting Obama.
Bought and paid for by the Saudis, those same Saudis who paid Harvard a lot of money to accept an utterly unqualified affirmative action buffoon.
Next up, an executive order banning fracking.
The approval of the Keystone pipeline was put into the hands of the State Department (Hillary) in December. Hillary declined to take any action, preferring to defer the issue until Kerry has a chance to make the decision.
There is quite a bit at work in this decision and Hillary did not want to take the risk of angering either the union supporters or the environmental opposition to the pipeline, who are demanding a PEIS be done on the project, a Programmatic Environmental Impact Study, which would extend the impact study beyond the local impacts. The problem is that if the Obama administration grants the PEIS for the Keystone pipeline, they would almost certainly have to grant the same for the sub-bituminous coal trains, terminals and docks, which the Obama administration are partnering on with Goldman Sachs, Warren Buffet, Peabody Energy and Arch Coal.
It’s a real conundrum and neither Hillary nor Obama wanted to anger either side, so they are passing the decision to John Kerry, who has little to lose.
Canada will simply build their own pipeline to the Pacific and sell the stuff to the Chinese (It won’t be easy, but they can do it). The moment they break ground on that, the offer to sell sands oil to be shipped through the Keystone will come off the table.
The timing is interesting.
Putting it off until around August when the national press goes into a near blackout for a month or so. This could actually be a good indicator that 0tard is going to allow it, because with most of the liberal media being away from DC, it won’t get so much attention. We shall see, I reckon.
Government by gossiping, busybody, harridan constituents, who say that they have pressing “property values” interests.
I agree. What are they going to do, thell them to take it down?
People need grow some cajones and tell this government to go straight to hell!
Sorry, I tried to emphasize that the man is a Vietnam Vet, who served 5 terms in the Mass. State Senate and forgot that it would require HTML for the whole piece.
I have a suggestion for the Republican candidate for Mass Senator to replace John Kerry, this guy.
Robert A. Hall is an actor. He plays the coroner on CSI if you watch that show. He also is a Marine Vietnam War veteran, but does not mention that he had his legs blown off in that war.
This should be required reading for every man, woman and child in the United States of America .
Im 63 and Im Tiredby Robert A. Hall
Im 63. Except for one semester in college when jobs were scarce and a six-month period when I was between jobs, but job-hunting every day, Ive worked hard since I was 18. Despite some health challenges, I still put in 50-hour weeks, and havent called in sick in seven or eight years. I make a good salary, but I didnt inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, theres no retirement in sight, and Im tired. Very tired.
Im tired of being told that I have to spread the wealth to people who dont have my work ethic. Im tired of being told the government will take the money I earned, by force if necessary, and give it to people too lazy to earn it.
Im tired of being told that I have to pay more taxes to keep people in their homes. Sure, if they lost their jobs or got sick, Im willing to help. But if they bought Mc Mansions at three times the price of our paid-off, $250,000 condo, on one-third of my salary, then let the left-wing Congress-critters who passed Fannie and Freddie and the Community Reinvestment Act that created the bubble use their own money to help them.
Im tired of being told how bad America is by left-wing millionaires like Michael Moore, George Soros and Hollywood Entertainers who live in luxury because of the opportunities America provided to them. In thirty years, if they get their way, the United States will have:
1. the economy of Zimbabwe,
2. the freedom of the press of China
3. the crime and violence of Mexico,
4. the tolerance for Christian people of Iran
5. the freedom of speech of Venezuela ..
Im tired of being told that Islam is a Religion of Peace, when every day I can read stories of Muslim men killing their sisters, wives and daughters for their family honor; of Muslims rioting over some slight offense; of Muslims murdering Christian and Jews because they arent believers; of Muslims burning schools for girls; of Muslims stoning teenage rape victims to death for adultery; of Muslims mutilating the genitals of little girls; all in the name of Allah, because the Quran and Sharias law tells them to.
Im tired of being told that race doesnt matter in the post-racial world of Obama, when its all that matters in affirmative action jobs, lower college admission and graduation standards for minorities (harming them the most), government contract set-asides, tolerance for the ghetto culture of violence and fatherless children that hurts minorities more than anyone, and in the appointment of U.S. Senators from Illinois.
I think its very cool that we have a black president and that a black child is doing her homework at the desk where Lincoln wrote the Emancipation Proclamation. I just wish the black president was Condi Rice, or someone who believes more in freedom and the individual and less arrogantly in an all-knowing government.
Im tired of being told that out of tolerance for other cultures we must not complain when Saudi Arabia uses the money we pay for their oil to fund mosques and madras Islamic schools to preach hate in America, while no American group is allowed to fund a church, synagogue or religious school in Saudi Arabia to teach love and tolerance.
Im tired of being told I must lower my living standard to fight global warming, which no one is allowed to debate. My wife and I live in a two-bedroom apartment and carpool together five miles to our jobs. We also own a three-bedroom condo where our daughter and granddaughter live. Our carbon footprint is about 5% of Al Gores, and if youre greener than Gore, youre green enough.
Im tired of being told that drug addicts have a disease, and I must help support and treat them, and pay for the damage they do. Did a giant germ rush out of a dark alley, grab them, and stuff white powder up their noses while they tried to fight it off? I dont think gay people choose to be gay, but I #@*# sure think druggies chose to take drugs. And Im tired of harassment from cool people treating me like a freak when I tell them I never tried marijuana.
Im tired of illegal aliens being called undocumented workers, especially those who arent working, but living on welfare or crime. Whats next? Calling drug dealers, Undocumented Pharmacists? And, no, Im not against Hispanics. Most of them are Catholic, and its been a few hundred years since Catholics wanted to kill me for my religion. Im willing to fast track citizenship for any Hispanic who can speak English, doesnt have a criminal record and who is self-supporting without family on welfare, or who serves honorably for three years in our military. Those are the kind of citizens we need.
Im tired of the trashing of our military by latte liberals and journalists, who would never wear the uniform of the Republic themselves, or let their entitlement-handicapped kids near a recruiting station. They and their kids can sit at home, never having to make split-second decisions under life and death circumstances, and bad mouth better people than themselves. Do bad things happen in war? You bet. Do our troops sometimes misbehave? Sure. Does this compare with the atrocities that were the policy of our enemies for the last fifty years and still are? Not even close. So heres a deal for those folks. Ill let myself be subjected to all the humiliation and abuse that was heaped on terrorists at Abu Ghraib or Gitmo, while the critics of our military can be subject to captivity by the Muslims, who tortured and beheaded Daniel Pearl in Pakistan, or the Muslims who tortured and murdered Marine Lt. Col. William Higgins in Lebanon, or the Muslims who ran the blood-spattered Al Qaeda torture rooms our troops found in Iraq, or the Muslims who cut off the heads of schoolgirls in Indonesia because the girls were Christian then well compare notes. British and American soldiers are the only troops in history that civilians came to for help and handouts, instead of hiding from in fear.
Im tired of people telling me that their party has a corner on virtue and the other party has a corner on corruption. Read the papers; bums are bipartisan. And Im tired of people telling me we need bipartisanship. I live in Illinois , where the Illinois Combine of Democrats has looted the public treasury for years. Not to mention the tax cheats in Obamas cabinet.
Im tired of hearing wealthy athletes, entertainers and politicians of both parties talking about innocent mistakes, stupid mistakes or youthful mistakes, when all of us know they think their only mistake was getting caught.
Speaking of poor, Im tired of people with a sense of entitlement who have air-conditioned homes, color TVs and two cars called poor. The majority of Americans didnt have that in 1970, but we didnt know we were poor. The poverty pimps have to keep changing the definition of poor to keep the dollars flowing.
Im real tired of people, rich or poor, who dont take responsibility for their lives and actions. Im tired of hearing them blame the government, or discrimination or big-whatever for their problems.
Yes, Im tired, but Im also glad to be 63, mostly because Im not going to have to see the world these people are making. Im just sorry for my granddaughter.
Robert A. Hall is a Marine Vietnam veteran who served five terms in the Massachusetts State Senate.
There is no way this will be widely publicized, unless each of us sends it on!
