Pipelines over people

Posted By on Tue, May 8, 2012 at 6:35 AM

Meet Julia Trigg Crawford, a Texas farmer.

She doesn't want the Keystone XL pipeline to cross her property and imperil her water supply.

TransCanada, the pipeline company, pretty much tells Crawford to go to hell. They want her land, they'll take it. Maybe it would go down easier if pipeline publicist U.S. Rep. Tim Griffin would take his pro-pipeline propaganda down to Texas. He could tell Ms. Crawford what an un-American whiner she is for seeking to protect her birthright against Canadian tar sands en route to refineries for eventual shipment to foreign countries.
