Petroleum Is Good, Liberals Are Crazy

For eight years, President Obama did everything in his power to punish the people who produce the fuel that makes capitalism work. It took Donald Trump just two days to turn that around:

Trump signed executive orders that will make it easier for TransCanada to construct the Keystone XL pipeline and for Energy Transfer Partners to build the final uncompleted portion of the Dakota Access pipeline.
The Keystone XL would bring oil from Alberta, Canada, to Nebraska, where it would connect to an existing pipeline to bring the crude to Illinois. Former President Barack Obama refused to approve the cross-border project, saying the environmental review was not adequate in light of its route through the Sandhills ecosystem in Nebraska. . . .
Obama also backed a delay to completion of the Dakota Access pipeline, which would bring oil from North Dakota to Illinois. . . .
In December, the Army Corp of Engineers said it would deny Dallas-based Energy Transfer Partners the easement it needs to complete the final stretch of the $3.7 billion Dakota Access pipeline. Jo-Ellen Darcy, United States assistant secretary of the Army for civil works, said the best path forward was to explore alternative routes for the pipeline, something Energy Transfer Partners says it will not do.
Tribe members and protesters have been camped out for months in Cannon Ball, North Dakota, in opposition to the Dakota Access pipeline.

Americans love petroleum. We love the internal combustion engine. We love fast cars and big trucks. Environmental activists . . . not so much.

Q. How many hippies does it take to pave five miles of highway?
A. Only one, if you spread him real thin.

Dirty hippies don’t like Donald Trump for some reason.
