THE KINDER MORGAN pipeline should be built for the same reason as the pyramids – as a national monument.
Construction of the People’s pipeline will employ well-paid union workers. It’s supposed to carry crude oil to Asia but that market doesn’t exist. Therefore, it will serve as a wonderful monument to the “National Interest.”
The pipeline should be built because it serves political interests. Premier Notley’s hopes to be re-elected depend on completion of the pipeline.
