I have a hard time understanding that The Republican and Tea Party were OK with a Canadian pipeline claiming Eminent Domain on land owned by Americans in Nebraska. Tsk tsk

    I mean, where is all the outrage like the Bundy ranch incident? Yeehaw! It's OK for a foreign country's company to grab your land, but not your own 'gubmint' to take back lands that were never given or sold to private holders. icon_lol.gif

    What's hard to understand about the party of hypocrisy?

    Landowner rights are sacred.....unless it's for tar sands sludge

    Govt regulations are too onerous....unless they're regulating an abortion clinic

    Preserve the sanctity of marriage....unless Newt wants a 4th divorce

    All life is sacred....unless that life needs food stamps or CHIPS

    ....go ahead, add your own example!

    More mistake is in expecting consistency from what is at core an emotional movement.

    I've been having these same thoughts. Maybe the land seizures were going to happen under a US-owned subsidiary, to avoid this issue, and other problems related to foreign ownership.

    It's not illegal to have foreign ownership in the US, but claiming Eminent Domain to seize US land may be a problem. I thought Eminent Domain could only be confirmed by US courts, at the request of US government entities on behalf of those US entities or companies. icon_question.gif

    And if any of the US political players here accepted any kind of gifts or campaign donations from a foreign country or business, isn't that also illegal?

    Well here I am, an opponent to Keystone. One of the few things that I don't agree with republicans and independents on. Here is another possible legal snag that the Nebraska Supreme Court might have gotten itself into over this, Native American Indian lands are also negatively impacted by the Keystone. Since reservations are technically sovereign countries, how can the builders of this costly, unneeded pipeline justify invading across the lands of other "sovereign nations"icon_question.gif
