Rounds and Noem continue to peddle the lies about Keystone XL

Great logo Scott! Is the red on the state with a black background showing the leaking and seepage of oil in our state on the Missouri River and our Aquifers?

So you’re a big supporter of sending that crude south a cho-cho huh? Cause that been proven to be real safe.

Since you have such an distaste for pipelines I’m sure you heat your house on wood and pedal yourself to work rather than use natural gas or petroleum products to right?

When your done visually inspecting your colon you might want to find a dose of common sense.

LJL – you missed the entire point. Noem flat out lied in her last debate, and so did Rounds. They are claiming by building the XL pipeline we would lower our independence on mideast oil. Bullshit. That oil is going directly to China, we will not benefit one single bit, in either jobs our oil. If Rounds and Noem really want to reduce our use of mideast oil, they would pull their Exxon Heads out of their asses and increase pumps in SD to E-30 and promote wind energy and biomass, instead of licking the boots of big oil.

In addition – the industry analysts all state that building Keystone XL will probably drive US gas and oil prices UP – not down. Why? That oil will be being refined for EXPORT in US refineries – thereby REDUCING their capacity to produce for the US market.

Bakken oilfield oil is also going to China via rail to the East Coast.

We have three train loads of crude oil going through Sioux Falls every week. One million gallons each. Wait ’til one of those derails and blows up. More South Dakotans might feel differently about a pipeline. Not sure which refinery is their destination.

The State Department estimated that deaths and injuries due to oil rail car accidents will quadruple if the TransCanada oil is transported by rail.

Not sure if Noem and Rounds are low information people themselves or whether they just think low information people will believe everything they say.

We will be buying lots of oil from the Saudis for quite a while. Ever since Nixon we have been in bed with the Middle East. One wonders if the Saudis will quit selling oil in US$ if we quit buying from them.

The US has been the largest oil producer for the last few months. Not sure where the US ranks in exportation of oil products.

The tree huggers think they’re stopping the pipeline. The next president will be republican and Keystone will happen. The reason for pumping to the gulf is there are no refineries along the way. If the refinery at Elk Point happens, there could be a prominent continental market. Mideast oil could become the principle resource for China.

BTW, LJL, if you are Lucas J. Lentsch, don’t you think the SD Secretary of Agriculture has better things to do then defend Noem and Rounds on a Liberal blog? I’m just saying.

#8 LJL on 09.01.14 at 10:44 pm

BAHAHAHA! You have forgotten all the times I’ve ripped Noem and Rounds right here. WhoTF is Lucas Lentsch?

Keep on guessing. I must have hit a nerve.

Why does your beloved democrats so fiercely fight the pipeline? Cuase your cash crusader (Buffett) owns the railroads.

You keep the pressure on higher taxes for the rich and we’ll keep them railcars in high demands. Said Obummer.

LJL, thanks for clearing that up. I thought it would be a little weird for him to be commenting here.

refineries all being along the coast – and not in Central US is that those coastal areas are “ENTEREPRISE ZONES” and import/export there is TAX FREE. And I guess you haven’t heard the “news” (almost a year old now) The environmental permit for the Elk Point project expired and the “investors” have NOT reapplied. Also, their “options” on the land have expired. Seems they didn’t actually have the $$$ and couldn’t raise it either. Please try to keep up.

Good grief what is wrong with this text-box?? The opening sentence above should read – “Dan, the reason for those refineries…….”

Wait til the niobra aquifer is ruined and we all have to go to walmart for water as the little guys can’t afford the license to sell water to the idiots that wanted frackin
