Nebraska is also looking great! 3.8% unemployment rate


Residential Housing is also booming.


New homes are selling fast.

It took about 5 years but we have recovered from the housing bubble.

Onward and upward! You just can't keep a great nation down!

BTW, the U.S. Stock Market is at record highs!

It's certainly a tale of two nations in terms of where one happens to live. Nebraska, North Dakota South Dakota and Wyoming seem to be doing well. On the other hand, California, New Jersey and Illinois are crowding 10%...and of course, I'm only showing the commonly referenced U-3 number. The others are.. well... I take it you live in Nebraska?
It's a good state to be in.

Just nuts.

We are prioritizing the economy over the ecology, without realizing that you can't have one without the other.

I have lost hope, but must point out this is an act of insanity, for whatever it's worth, which seems like not much at all.

The Doom & Gloom narrative won't work.

We are moving forward. Nice try though.

I realize it won't "work".

That's the whole point, and the reason we are doomed as a species.

So that others may understand how poor your reasoning capabilities truly are, I present this thread you authored not too long ago.

People need to know what kind of thought processes are tied into thinking talk of ecoside is unreasonable "doom and gloom".

I hear Canadians bragging about their socialistic government.

Then I hear Canadians complaining they aren't making capitalist profits.

Well, dang....Canadians can't have it both ways..

The United States and Canada will both benefit from the Keystone Pipeline.


It's a done deal.

The truth is that no one is doomed. You are delusional.

Stop drinking the liberal Kool-Aid.

Not only do I hold no party affiliations, I stick to the science.

Time will out the truth.

It matters oh so little what you or I believe about the topic.

Nature cares not for our judgments, beliefs, and opinions.

Socialists have a societal death wish. That's why they're always saying they're doomed.

For the good of society on a planet-wide bases, think of a world where welfare is no longer needed?

Ah, well.....it's Sci Fi, I know....

Well, this Senate IS good for something once in awhile. If those on the coasts don't want this...fine...the map doesn't show it running there. A good many in the Midwest sure want it though, and we'll all try real hard to deal with whatever downsides may come. The upsides of construction and economic benefit are far greater though.

For once, Congress does something I'm happy about! ....now will it live to see the end of the process? Hmm..


Jobs, Jobs, Jobs here in the USA.

Meanwhile, Cyprus is in chaos.
It's a good day to be an American.


American Exceptionalism wins every time.


Yep, 20000 TEMPORARY JOBS for a few years then only 80 people, about 15 per state, to check and regulate it.

I work for a large oil company in Alberta, and weve been discussing this for years.

When the 20,000 temporary jobs expire, then we will hire you for another project.

We are dynamic, not static.

Our positive thinking cannot be contained.

Maybe the socialists should move to a peaceful Tahitian Island somewhere.

Then they won't be so full of Doom & Gloom.


Live Long & Prosper.

Here is a link to the affects from the Alaskan pipeline done by University of Michigan Link

The study says the pipeline is a better alternative and more environmentally friendlier than building more roads and less riskier of spills than tanker transport.
Yes,the biggest risk would be a leak,the monitoring alarm systems installed on the pipelines severely limit a major spill

I just hope they don't use eminent domain on US citizens who don't want it on their ranch. it's a canadian pipeline selling oil to china. they should not be able to screw over our ranchers in the process

This has not been approved, as pointed out by other members, but the real fight will be coming up soon....and that fight comes in Nebraska. The entire reason this pipeline hasn't been built already is because of little support in Nebraska.

Support for the pipeline in Nebraska came mainly from the higher population areas that were in no way effected by the pipeline. It was to be built in rural Nebraska so as to not be such an eyesore.

The rural folks were ok with it as long as they kickbacks were in proper order. But then concerns arose about the Ogallala aquifer and what effect the pipeline would have on that.

After that, they decided they could build it closer to the higher population areas and all of the sudden the support began to pull back. Most people were saying "I support it, but don't build it in my backyard".

Then Gov. Dave Heineman just approves the project and gives no damn about the people's concerns.

I will expect to see the folks of Nebraska to become very vocal in the near future if this project does begin to take shape.

I find it revealing that it passed overwhelmingly in the U.S. Senate.

62 to 37

17 Democrats joined with the Republicans!

Can you see the writing on the wall?

You know, in fairness to some... I'm with the environmentalists on one thing. I am 100% for the development of energy sources to replace Coal and Oil. When, someday, that reaches a level where it's viable? I'll be shoulder to shoulder with them demanding it BE the replacement too.

I think the disconnect comes where I see the numbers as they are today and alternatives are experimental in all but a couple examples....at best. The production from alternative is simply no where remotely close to discussing as replacements to anything. Not yet..and maybe not for a decade or more.

Until they are..ALREADY developed (and not wishfully thinking they can be..in theory..really..they can..lol) then I am 100% for the best and most effective way to recover the natural resources our nation and those of our allies are so blessed with in abundance. Oil isn't the best...but it's the among the only game in town so indeed, Drill that stuff!

And the US senate passed Obamacare 60-39.


They must be right....huh?

This was shoved down the throats of people in Nebraska and just because the US senate (most of whom are funded by corporate/energy money) approve it does not mean it's what is right for the people of Nebraska.

Did you know that to build this pipeline each state must give up land, through eminent domain, to a foreign nation?

Think about that for a few.
