1. If you think the decision to build it hasn't already been made

I'd like to make you a good deal on a bridge


It's getting built, they're just waiting to announce it until it will cause as little political damage as possible for the Democrats.

After it's built, it will crack, rupture, and spill. Thousands if not more will have their drinking water ruined. Corporations will dodge responsibility and no one will clean up the mess. All of this will be done so that a foreign owned company can ship their product to international market with ease. We will see NO BENEFIT from it and will only suffer because of it.

2. And if you don't say anything - it for sure will be built...

 

I cannot imagine any patriotic American not writing a Public Comment on this matter...

5. Though I am cynical that anything is going to stop that pipeline, I am kicking your post

 

because I agree that it is important for each of us to log our opinion on the subject.

My cynicism is not meant to discourage anyone from trying to stop it or from offering their comments. I just really believe they are going to build it anyway.
