The most painfully hilarious anti-Keystone pipeline video, ever?

posted at 6:41 pm on May 31, 2013 by Erika Johnsen

Granted, I haven’t seen all of them, but buckle up and brace yourselves for this stunning revelation from a representative of the party of science: When you put rocks in water… they sink. Game-changer?

For instance, let’s look at the tar sands themselves. … As we put them in the water, you’ll notice that they absolutely sink, and that’s why the pipelines spills and leaks are so dangerous in places like Mayflower, Arkansas, that is so difficult to clean up. This stuff sinks, it doesn’t float. Keystone XL is about 2,000 miles long, it’s going to carry 800,000 gallons of this stuff on that pipeline everyday. So, you don’t have to be a Congressman in a borrowed lab coat to do the math.

Uhm… brilliant? I mean, if that video — brought to you courtesy of Arizona Democrat Rep. Raul Grijalva — didn’t persuade you to voice your opposition to the Keystone XL pipeline, I just don’t know what will!

I’m going to try and overlook the several awkward iterations about borrowed lab coats and sinking-oil sands non sequiturs, and instead address the vague leaks-and-spills environmental issue that comes the closest to a readily detectable argument in Rep. Grijalva’s ramble. Never mind that there are already many miles of similar pipelines already crisscrossing the United States, but Keystone opponents have long insisted that Nebraska is home to some of the most sensitive high-risk areas for environmental damage from the pipeline itself — except that the state has already performed their own positive environmental review of TransCanada’s proposed route and the governor has given the green light (and let’s not forget the several times over the State Department has now cleared the project, shall we?).

Rep. Grijalva’s other apparent qualm is that the pipeline’s ultimate approval will not create nearly as many jobs as its advocates claim, but the State Department’s latest review estimated that the pipeline’s construction would eventually support over 42,000 jobs through various means — and even if that’s an optimistic overshoot, there is no doubt that the pipeline would create direct and indirect jobs, both temporary and permanent. I would also merely like to point out that it’s a little odd how President Obama and his fellow Democrats are all about temporary “infrastructure” projects to boost the economy when they are handed down via political decisions and taxpayer money, but not so much when the private sector produces infrastructure projects. Pretty messed-up logic you’ve all got there.

The Congressman didn’t even touch on the argument to which opponents are most desperately clinging these days — that developing the especially dirty oil sands would result in a carbon bomb that would be an unmitigated disaster for climate change — although not referencing that argument might have been a wise move, since it’s so full of holes. Not only is the hyper-carbon intensive line false in and of itself, it also conveniently overlooks the reality that Canada is going to develop their resources whether it’s the United States reaping the economic benefits or another foreign buyer.

But… good try, I guess?

The states through which the pipeline would go should just go ahead and let the builders start building it.

“Painfully hilarious”? I beg to differ. Painfully pathetic would be closer to the mark. The only thing remotely funny to me was looking at Grijalva and thinking about Chris Farley in Tommy Boy in the “fat guy in a little coat” scene.

Nope. Ruth McClung scared the crap out of him in 2010; she came so close to winning despite the usual democrap election fraud that the “independent” redistricting commission (run by the same publicity organization that ran Obama’s 2008 campaign) made his district even more democrap secure by districting out areas with even a hint of conservatism. No way in the world that band of outlaws and welfare queens will ever, ever, ever vote his sorry @$$ out.

I think the keystone pipeline should turn into what Rep Grijalva thinks it is…. A pipeline-less pipeline.

If we build up enough preasure….we could squirt the oil from Canada all the way to the gulf via a huge cannon pipeline dilvery system.

Unfortunately no, we can’t. This moron is in a very safe, heavily gerrymandered district. Heavily latino and CHOCK FULL of VERY LOW information voters. He can pretty much say and do whatever he likes and know that he will never have to worry about losing this seat. Even in the big red wave election in 2010 when he probably did sweat a little bit, he still won by 3-4 points I think.

Well [looks down], we’ve also got McCain and Flake.

The whole redistricting thing however was a massive bit of malfeasance on the part of Governor Brewer and the establishment Republicans. The “independent” board member had been a democrat up until two years before being appointed to the redistricting commission. The democrats made sure that their representatives on the board were staunch marxists ideologues and the Republicans, as usual, didn’t pay much attention to what was going on. There are large Republican districts that have over 300K voters while there are many smaller democrat districts. The redistricting violates the Arizona constitution on that ground alone because districts are supposed to be similar in population as one of the criteria. As it is, they packed several Republican majority districts to give them more democrat districts.

Well, given the district that he represents, I can assure you that both assertions are true. In addition to being as dumb as Sheila Jackson Lee or Hank Brown, he is a drunk idiot as well. Of course, that would never be used against him, you can be a drunk congressman when you have a (D) after your name.

AZfederalist on May 31, 2013 at 8:05 PM

Math? Lets do some:

1. Mexico is a major oil exporter to America.
2. This pipeline is an extra source of oil for America.
3. It will result in less oil being imported from Mexico and lower the price.
4. Rep. Grijalva is a Mexican nationalist.

Result – Mexico doesn’t want this pipeline built, and Grijalva is violating his oath of office in promoting the national interests of Mexico over America’s.

And don’t even get me started on Rep. Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the California Congressional Democrats/Socialists.

Sadly, California had similar problems with the redistricting process. “Independent” Commissioners turned out to be not-so independent. After lawsuits and haggling, the new lines were approved.

But we need to continue the fight to save our country, with an emphasis on the House and the Senate.

And in the meantime, our State Republican Party organizations need to be strengthened too, so they don’t keep falling for the same Democrat tricks.

Keep up the good fight in Arizona!

We had a 36″ pipeline cross our land laid in the 50′s. It never had a leak. It was constantly tested. An airplane followed it several times a month to inspect the pathway.

A few years ago, they decided to run more corrosion tests and experiments. The pipe had tiny pits of corrosion. So it was shut down and removed. Your American Petroleum Institute has safety standards.

Our near by train tracks reaching from the same gas basin to Chicago have had many derailments in those decades. Underground pipe is by far the safest form of transportation.

Deano1952 on May 31, 2013 at 8:57 PM

The study is by “Cornell University Global Labor Institute.” It’s online, so I read it. What the study actually demonstrates is:

- The people who wrote it have never worked on a pipeline project;
- They have never actually worked on a construction project;
- There is strong evidence that they have never witnessed a major construction project, even from a distance;
- The study’s authors are adept at raising strawmen.

The main conclusion to be drawn from that study is that Cornell University ain’t what it used to be.

landlines on May 31, 2013 at 11:15 PM

The fools that are against the pipeline because of the “few” permanent jobs don’t understand construction. I worked in the construction and testing field for 28 years and my end date was the end of the project I was on. If there was not another project, while technically I was a permanent employee, guess what, no job until one was available. The home office management and staff are the actual jobs that Obama and his people would consider permanent. I have been on projects that lasted over five years, but when the project was over, I was in the competition for a job on the next project. That is life in the construction world.

One thing I learned in that experiment. Did you notice how the tar sands didn’t seem to mix with the water? They dropped to the bottom, but the water stayed clear.

That would seem to indicate that a tar sands spill wouldn’t contaminate the water, it would all just drop to the river/lake etc bed where it could be dredge up easily.

There’s no need to even try to win the votes of conservatives and republicans because there simply aren’t enough of them to make a difference anyway.

Come on Arizona, you can find a brighter Represtative than Rep. Grijalva!

The Stupid is very strong in this one.

So.AZ has two problems: Ron (No guns cause I’m from Britian) Barber and Raul (The Burro) Grijalva (D-Mex).
Barber has a slim hold on his border district. Raul, with an IQ two point higher he’ll be as smart as a cactus, might remain secure in his seat unless the Repubs take SERIOUS measures (i.e. money AND talent) to oust him. It will not be easy but think about it, Raul (The Burro) Grijalva’s constituency boast’s IQ’s (on average mind you) at the lower quartile of the LIV (Low Information Voter) so it will not take a superior effort to defeat him. But it WILL take an effort. King Putt’s Sequester Scare didn’t work and THAT is one of the linch pins of the Dhimicraps talking points. The Gimmedats of So. AZ have Tucson as their example. The 6th POOREST CITY IN AMERICA. Bested by Detroit but working every day to overtake the Motor City.
Raul (The Burro) Grijalva was and remains a MAJOR contributor to this disaster.
Anyone remember: BOYCOTT ARIZONA?
Yea, that’s Raul’s mantra. And he still gets re-elected. Astouding.
sorry for the rant/

Almost every major train overhead pass/bridge, carries a pipeline, somewhat hidden, that carries jet fuel across the nation. Also the fuel lines follow the train right of way.

Volatile jet fuel, that is why train accidents are often so dramatic, they are diesel run, but burst into huge flames.

The people who run telecommunication lines, along the bridges have known this for years, they can’t run their lines close to the fuel lines.

Talk about an environmental disaster that could happen, and has happened…

Pipelines have moved many different products over the decades…oil being one of the most inert.

Hold on a second…since when does sand sink?!?!? Why this flies in the face of everything known about physical and material properties like, oh I don’t know, density. No, my mistake, the morons who voted for this sh*t with eyes probably float and are also extremely dense.

Piss them off even more by pulling out little packs of ketchup when the waiter brings your food at one of those little cafes they have while reading on your iPad something you downloaded from Amazon.

Or…we could continue to put up those big stinking fans that slice and dice bald eagles, as recently allowed by the Obama administration.
