Environmentalists pretend to be dead on a black sheet symbolizing an oil spill as they rally in front of the White House and call on President Barack Obama to reject the Keystone XL oil pipeline, in Washington, March 2, 2014.

They don't look greasey.  Should have poored some oil on themselves.  More real.

Those danged hippie protesters. Don't they know that the pipeline will bring JOBS and ENERGY INDEPENDENCE to this country?  I mean...sure...there might be some environmental consequences...but look at all the jobs China produces, and THEY don't worry about pollution.  Most days in Bejing you can see all the way across the street...and even go outside for a few minutes...I'm sure they'd tell us not to worry about something as inconsequential as toxic water...or air.

@barneydiditShould we invade China to stop pollution?  Aren't you one of those who says that the Ukraine is non of our business?  No consistency here, move on. Don't you just LOVE the internet?

Oh I just get SOOOOOO darn angry when countries refuse to cater to our demands to not intervene in the affairs of other countries. They need to follow our example of non interference which we've held to so well over the years- Vietnam, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Korea, Guatemala, Cuba....

@AndrewRyan1No he's not.  Yesterday, he was arguing that we had NO BUSINESS telling other countries how to be.  LMAO.  Typical liberal, doesn't believe in anything.
