(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Canada to America: You Won't Take Our Oil? China Will.


Just as I wrote this past Thursday, Canada has confirmed:

If America doesn't want the Keystone XL pipeline for a continued flow south to the Texas Chemical Coast, China would most certainly up the ante and take that offer, with a pipeline west from Alberta to the BC coast for blue water shipping.

From Bloomberg.com:

Prime Minister Stephen Harper, in a telephone call yesterday, told Obama “Canada will continue to work to diversify its energy exports,” according to details provided by Harper’s office. Canadian Natural Resource Minister Joe Oliver said relying less on the U.S. would help strengthen the country’s “financial security.”

The “decision by the Obama administration underlines the importance of diversifying and expanding our markets, including the growing Asian market,” Oliver told reporters in Ottawa.

Currently, 99 percent of Canada’s crude exports go to the U.S., a figure that Harper wants to reduce in his bid to make Canada a “superpower” in global energy markets.

Mr Obama, with this completely ridiculous and uninformed decision based but upon incorrect ideology, jeopardizes this country on almost every level.

And here's a Newsflash: China also is jumping on Brazilian oil -- over the US as well. Imagine that.

Obama rejects new oil pipeline, blames Congress

Some real challenges to build a pipeline to the West. More practical, if China is their market, to go East to Hudson Bay and a tanker terminal.

Even smarter to tell the Earth Bunnies to fuck off and build refineries in North Dakota.

WSF, is it shorter to Hudson Bay? Is there already more tanker infrastructure there?

If yes, then I clearly understand.

Jenn, yes he does, does he not?

If there were ever a "Perfect Storm" in terms of politics linked with the inner destruction of this country, thy name BE Obama.

BZ No infrastructure at Hudson Bay. Not sure if any exists in British Columbia. Going East, no high mountain ranges.

WSF: no mountains = easier traverse. Got it.

NFO: in fact, I think you'll see higher.

It wasn't oil liar, it was oil sands. Toxic sludge. But I know how the the right just pretend facts don't exist.

I'm publishing this, "LiberalMann" (nice Teutonic, goose-stepping name there, my brother), to show the rest of my readers your septic ignorance.

Oil sands? Tar sands? What?? You think the fracking Canadians are gonna be shipping us SAND? You cannot possibly be that daft.

Right. Sand shipped down the pipeline, with just a tad bit of oily stuff mixed in to our southern coastal refineries.

Take a peek, my dear readers. This unit can actually vote. He, America, is the product of T-ball, esteem, non-objective thinking and Ritalin.

You do, however, make for the occasionally-interesting point of ridiculosity. When you and my other trolls don't litter your comments with nothing but F and S words. You are your own best examples. So thank you kindly.
