Will Obama approve the pipeline despite our efforts? after all he was GOLFING with oil men and others who run companies that deal iN the same kinds of carbon-based services that Keystone would enlarge...so didn't even see us demonstrating.

Very impressive turn out as I got off BART (not a car) I was impressed with the large turn out. With that saying and I direct this at the Sierra Club who has continually endorsed Democratic (Obombma and Master Bates) stooges who are into development (cutting down trees) and developers who are into Gentrification. I'm embracing the change in values but remember the past. As far as Obombma and begging this half White (Dick Cheney's blood cousin) and half Black Nazi to do the right thing is ridiculous. We need to get into Fossil Fuel strikes or Boycotting oil like the already established Stop Driving (org) campaign which is a 4 day boycott of driving in September. We are hypocrites (or Democrats) if we do not curb our use of oil.
