From the Irony Department: Folks in Nebraska oppose the Keystone XL pipeline. This pipeline will carry Canadian bitumen products to U.S. refineries where the evil oil companies with refine the bitumen into gasoline, diesel, jet fuel - you know the stuff that powers our modern society.

I support everyone's right to free speech, but anti oil company, anti pipeline BUMPER STICKERS just points out how perfect our Idiocracy has become.

Maybe the oil company haters in Nebraska will succeed and kill another energy project. Nebraska say hello to Mule power!

I have to confess, I'm not nuts about the Keystone project either.

I've never completely understood why it makes sense to expend the energy it takes to run raw bitumen through a pipeline to an upgrader when it's easer just to upgrade it at the source and ship the byproducts.

I'd have to say I'm Pro-Canadian Crude oil simply because we have a lot of refineries that can use bottom of the barrel feedstocks. Fill the pipe with Canadian oil and pick up the slack for lost heavy crude streams like my buddy Hugo's crude.
