I Guess..... It's "Game On"!

“We’re repulsed by some of our supposed brothers and sisters lining up with job killers like the Sierra Club and the Natural Resources Defense Council to destroy the lives of working men and women,” LIUNA General President Terry O’Sullivan said in a statement.
Many unions — including the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, the Teamsters, the United Association of Plumbers and Pipe Fitters for the United States and Canada and others — support the pipeline. But some labor groups, including the Amalgamated Transit Union and the Transport Workers Union, oppose it.

LIUNA’s decision to leave the BlueGreen Alliance comes just two days after President Obama rejected Keystone, blaming the decision on a 60-day deadline imposed by Republicans. The GOP has vowed to work to reverse the decision legislatively.

It seems that the labour unions are waking up to how uncompromising environmental groups really are. The environmentalists don't care about jobs because they get millions in donations for wrapping themselves in a "green" blanket. Unions are about jobs for their workers who rely on the jobs to support their families and communities. The environmentalists are never happy, unless a bird is being chopped up in their heavily subsidized wind turbines. Forget saving the seals, SAVE the eagles! Environmentalists should be out planting trees, if they really actually cared about pollution. Plants suck up CO2 don't you know!  Like this:

Just like the environmentalists still use 20 year old pictures of white baby seals being clubbed, they will NEVER, EVER show you the reclamation of the oil sands... that would seriously hurt their fund raising. Some of those trees are 20 years old now, but the "greenies" just can't live in the present. Telling the truth would mean that about 90% of them would be unemployed, if you call going around the world, in a polar bear suit, making an a$$ of yourself, employed.

Here is another article that shows how unhappy Americans are with Obama's decision:
By rejecting the Keystone XL oil pipeline, President Obama did more than just pander to environmentalists. He shredded attempts by his handlers to cast him as a pragmatic and reasonable man who can appeal to independent voters.
Instead, he stands naked as an ideologue willing to sacrifice workers on the altar of special-interest politics.
Thousands of jobs were cast aside with no more thought than yesterday’s socks. Demolished, too, is the promised commitment to energy independence.
I especially like this response from one of the comments:

Thank you for your time. Why would we be called from New Jersey. Then a friend called saying she just got a call from New Jersey.
