Keystone Jobs

Written by Rob Rogers on .

Despite the myth of jobs created by the Keystone Pipeline, the actual number is 35. The State Dept. estimates there will be 42,000 plus jobs created by economic ripple effect by the construction of the pipeline but those jobs will only last 2 years. On the other hand, actual jobs are being created as a result of renewable energy.

Democratic Voter

Written by Rob Rogers on .

Democratic voters really don't understand the importance of midterms. They get all excited about the Presidential election every four years but they keep letting the Republican voters rule the midterms. 2006 was an exception.
