    Wouldn’t years of concern in East Point attract the attention of the financial investigation unit of the GBI ?

      Even better news will come when Obama finally decides to go ahead and approve the Keystone XL pipeline. That would eventually lower oil prices. Of course, had he approved it 2 years ago it might have lowered oil prices and provided more construction jobs to the economy already … never mind.

              His Moody’s was one of the ratings agencies trained by Goldman to rate packages of mortgage bonds AAA so restricted funds could buy junk….and no one went to prison !

                clarification: Geico being a big BH company – the biggest in P&C/auto is State Farm.

        6000 jobs max for oil we dont even want to use. Tar sands oil is a very low grade and dirty oil. It would also be running on top of one of the major sources for water. Accidents happen (just ask the people of Arkansas what a nasty spill of this crap can do) and somehow everyone will find a way to absolve themselves from blame or cleanup responsibility. So to recap, it wont create that many jobs is a possible pollution nightmare, oh, but it would go to Koch refineries so I guess Virginia Galloway and her cronies must me all in for it…Just ask Debbie Dooley what she thinks about their sudden anti solar position. The cons far outweigh the pros on this, and it wont do squat for oil prices since we will only be refining it and sending off to China
