    If Obama had a brain, he might really be dangerous, Thank God he doesn’t!

    Which is why Warren Buffett’s Buddy in the White House won’t sign off on the Keystone XL Pipeline… We can’t hurt Berkshires BNSF bottom line now can we?
    Warren is such a great Donor…Ur a I mean American

    BNSF (Burlington Northern Santa Fe) Headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas, the railroad is a wholly owned subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway Inc.

    Wake Up People…

    “Rail safety has become a central issue in North America, particularly following the devastating derailment in Lac-Megantic, Quebec, in July, when a runaway train carrying crude products exploded in the center of the town and killed 47 people.”

    Really? Please offer a quote to back up your “Obama Says Pipelines Are Too Dangerous – Wants Oil Transported By Trains.” Pipelines are dangerous, just not as dangerous as a train operated by a single person, who left it running unattended.

    • Don says:

      Pipelines are far more efficient and cost effective.

    • The dictator is entering his sixth year of Keystone dementia.

    • Ernest Bush says:

      Really? Please offer data to back up your assertion that large pipelines are dangerous. Pipeline explosions are in the news far less than airline crashes in the U.S. And they are in the news far less than railroad derailments causing deaths and environmental hazards. The safety record of pipelines is phenomenal given that there are hundreds of thousands of miles of them in the ground in the U.S.

      Obama”s actions and comments concerning the various positive EPA studies about the pipeline speaks volumes about how he feels. Except its all misdirection. The connection with Warren Buffet acquiring his railroad to transport the oil expensively and dangerously is documented.

    • Wyguy says:

      Guess what Bob, water is dangerous, oxygen is dangerous, everything is dangerous, life is dangerous. Ban everything and then die, problem solved.

  6. Fred from Canuckistan says:

    Buffett gets rich by owning the railroad and by owning the railcar building side as well. He has bought and paid for a lot of profit by having his picture taken with OBamBam

  7. Don says:

    Obama is a crony capitalist, with tinges of fascism thrown in for good measure (witness his handling of the shutdown). Thus folks like Buffet are winners, a man who already has more than enough yet pretends to live as a middle-class working man. All of this is rather diabolic in nature, of course too few believe in the devil, which is his greatest trick.

  8. AndrewS says:

    He likes pipes and ‘trains’, if ya know what I mean. bad-um – bum

  9. wulliejohn says:

    At least using pipelines there is no need to have a return one full of explosive fuel air mixture.

  10. Phil Jones says:

    Could some please explain this mysterious “pipeline” technology?? Sounds really dangerous and could cause temperatures to rise 2-3 degrees by 2020!! Also, pumping all of this oil out of the ground will cause the continents to sink 97% of scientists agree… Experts say the oil pumped through Keystone could put Manhattan underwater by 2030…
