Smart Power!

1 – Dear Barack,

Shit or get off the pot.



OTTAWA (Reuters) – Canada bluntly told the United States on Thursday to settle the fate of TransCanada Corp’s proposed Keystone XL pipeline, saying the drawn-out process on whether to approve the northern leg of the project was taking too long.

The hard line comments by Foreign Minister John Baird in Washington were the clearest sign yet that Canada’s Conservative government has lost patience over what it sees as U.S. foot-dragging. Ottawa strongly backs the project.

“The time for Keystone is now. I’ll go further – the time for a decision on Keystone is now, even if it’s not the right one. We can’t continue in this state of limbo,” Baird said in a speech to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

2 – The Adults Are In Charge And The World Loves Us:

Indian media have been giving wide play to derogatory comments by a U.S. diplomat couple on Indian life and culture, exacerbating already strained relations between the two countries in the wake of the Devyani Khobragade affair.

The Times of India identified the couple as Wayne May, who headed the security team at the U.S. embassy in New Delhi, and his wife Alicia Muller, who worked, ironically, as a community liaison officer.

…On his Facebook page, May made fun of the Indian way of life and said his pet dog was better nourished than his Indian gardener as the dog got more protein in his diet. In one Facebook post, Muller referred to India’s reputation for sexual violence: “It’s the vegetarians that are doing the raping, not the meat eaters — this place is just so bizarre.” The couple also made fun of cows, which are a religious symbol in India. When one of Muller’s friends pointed out that she had insulted an Indian god, she retorted “Not the first time, not the last.”

Yeah, we’re in the Very Best of Hands.

    If it had been me, I’d have lost patience about the Keystone XL pipeline years ago.

    The Obumbler Administration’s sucking up to special interests, in this case the wealthy environmentalist nutjobs, is disgusting.

    Two world renowned environmental experts, Neil Young and Robert Redford, have declared that the oil sands in Alberta is dirty. Obviously, Obama and his administration don’t want to upset the greenies before the 2014 mid-terms. Why would they start making decisions based on facts and needs at this point.

    The real benefactor of President Puttz is Warren Buffet, the railroad magnate who’s been one of Puttzies biggest bundlers.
