In response to the comment below.... The pipeline in the Yellowstone was very old, very shallow and doesn't even compare in quality and safety compared to the state of the art pipeline that will go under the river north of the Rez in ND. There are thousands of river and stream pipeline crossings in the US. And yes, many of them are very old and may need replaced. But can you imagine if all those billions of barrels of oil had to be hauled by rail tankers?? That would be a disaster with the extra emissions, chances of derailments, and the staggering amount of rail traffic going through populated areas. No brainer!!!
Hopefully on Jan. 20, 2017 this will be reversed. Why would any one in their right mind think that thousands of oil tankers daily, pulled by a train, crossing the river on a bridge, would be safer than the pipeline, which will be the safest ever built?? It has high tech safety measures that will shut down the flow immediately if there is a leak anywhere on the system. A bunch of closed minded yoyos who have nothing to do but protest. And I bet my bottom dollar at least 80% of the natives protesting don't work (and may never have worked), and have sucked off of taxpayer money all their lives. The reservation system has done nothing but keep most natives in poverty at the expense of the working taxpayer.
I'm sure they will hire her because they will get a FOUR for ONE........ a far left Liberal, a Woman, a Lesbian, and a Native American. JACKPOT. Who cares about qualifications??
You just can't get over blaming it on racism can you?? DRAIN THE SWAMP and put Dan Brooks in it before you drain it. I'm sick of the racism card being paid by the whining liberals.
Just because Trump wants the rule of law followed pertaining to illegals coming into this country, doesn't make it racist. The laws are already on the books to deal with this, he just wants them followed. Are the laws racist?? Get over it. Have you seen the county by county national map? Over 92 percent of the counties in the US were won by Trump. There are now only 5 states that are ruled completely by Democrats (Govenor and both hoses). And only 16 Democrat Gov. I believe. Since Obama took office, over 1,000 state Dem. legislative seats have been lost. But it must be due to racism. And voter suppression laws is a fairy tail. Get real and open your minds
This isn't about fear of oil spills, if it were they would rather have the oil transported by this new, high tech pipeline rather that by Warren Buffets railroad or via tanker trucks. The odds of a disaster happening are many times higher by rail or truck transport. And I bet my bottom dollar that at least 80% of the NATIVES protesting have no job and probably never had one in their life, and that those same 80% suck off the government (taxpayers). What can you do when you don't work, suck off the government and are bored?? You go protest, smoke weed, get drunk and on and on. And I am 1/4 Native myself, so don't call me racist for my on-site observations.
Had the Dems ran a better candidate maybe they could have won, but instead they gave us the most corrupt, deceitful, lying candidate in history - Hillary. I just couldn't bring myself to vote for another crap sandwich.
I suppose the city council decided to put this bridge in this location so they could stop any mega-loads from coming down Hwy 93?? What a joke and waste of money
