    Oil can, took a minute to get this one. This is why we need Keystone. People in the Middle East say we steal their oil, not true, we spent 20 billion on Saudi alone back in the 70s to build their oil industry. The arrangement is to buy it a low prices. Now they will kill us for not buying their oil.

    It is all part of their Jizya, the practice of taxing some one to practice a religion other then Islam.

    Yessssss, Keshav, an Indian cartoonist is representing Keystone. :-|


    The sheer gall. Just how parochial can one get?! pfft


    This about India’s local economy, despite the lessons of the global melt-down a few years ago…

    you would rather we continue transporting oil by rail? one way or another, for the foreseeable future, oil will be transported.

    I stand corrected. I was thinking along the lines my Indian work colleagues were complaining of recently.
    The cartoon is from June 19th, 9 days after ISIS taking over Mosul, potentially disrupting oil supplies and causing a sharp slight rise in oil prices.



    @ jack < sigh > I’m going to regret admiting… Self righteous I oft may be but you should try read your own posts. They are very difficult to understand.
    I read “keystone” and some bs about the mid-east. I shall, however, concede that the ’toon is indeed the global dependance on oil and how easily it is disrupted by conflicts in the Middle-East. Your comment about building the Keystone pipeline would be in keeping with the thought of Independence from oil supplies from that region of the world. The remaining portion of your comment after the 2nd sentence remains elusive to me.


    That wasn’t so much an apology as a concession; a humiliation either way

    @omQ R

    First dude thank you for proving my point! As for my post difficult to read sometimes, ok but lets look at yours.

    Try read your own post, maybe reading. Then I read “keystone”, ok for or against put it in some context, is it a book or report.

    My only mistake was in “The arrangement is to buy it a low prices. Now they will kill us for not buying their oil”. should have been to buy it at a low prices.

    I made one you made two.

    Keystone = refined products going for export, period. Yep, big help for our needs, just like the pipeline and LNG terminals on the west coast to send Wyoming fracking produced natural gas to China. All hail the fossil fuels consortium!

    Hate to burst your bubble Churchie, but the U.S. is now the largest producer of oil and gas in the world, more than Saudi Arabia or Russia, so why aren’t our prices down? We EXPORT products that keep prices up here at home. The only “job” that’s key to the energy industry is their snow job on the public.
