No mud for oil -- What do we want? A protest! When do we want it? Whenever! TheDC's C.J. Ciaramella reports: "United States Park Police arrested another gaggle of protesters outside of the White House Monday. The protesters were participating in an ongoing demonstration against the proposed Keystone XL pipeline. Police arrested 52 protesters for blocking the sidewalk in front of the White House, the third round of mass arrests since the protests began on Saturday. The protesters are calling on President Barack Obama not to approve the Keystone XL pipeline — a proposed expansion of an existing line that would transport crude oil from the Athabasca Oil Sands in Alberta, Canada, to refineries in Illinois and Oklahoma, and down to the U.S. Gulf Coast. The protesters at Monday's demonstration wore pro-Obama buttons and called on the president to honor his campaign promises. 'Obama said he was going to take care of the environment,' said Brad Teal, one of the demonstrators. 'And now we'd like to get him to honor that commitment.'" So far there's been no response from Obama, Santa Claus, Spider-Man, Harry Potter, or anyone else the protesters have ever believed in. They're going to feel silly when they realize Obama isn't even home this week. Just kidding. If they were capable of shame, they wouldn't be environmentalists.So, how'd these people get to the White House? Did they walk from their dimly lit caves or did they take some sort of modern conveyance that either burns oil, uses electricity from oil generated plants, or uses oil as a lubricant? Getting oil from Canada is far superior than getting it from Saudi Arabia, and yet these nimrods won't let us get any from anywhere!
Note to environwhackos: Oil is part of the environment. Taking it from the ground and using it is not a crime against Mother Nature, it's using what Mother Nature provides in the best possible way.
