      KXL was AWOL from SOTU – along with real energy, job, economic and revenue solutions President Obama frequently says he wants to turn the economy around, put America back to work, produce more energy, improve public safety, and open new markets to goods stamped “Made in the USA.” In his State of the Union address […]

      posted in Big Gov & Columns & Jobs

      It used to be that a college degree was a ticket to a pretty good job. No more. College graduates are now called the “Lost” generation because more than half of recent graduates are jobless, or working only non-career part-time jobs, or working jobs that don’t require a college degree.

      The two were discussing the job benefits of and need for building Keystone XL, which has been given an environmental green light by the state of Nebraska, near whose sensitive aquifers it will run.
