    We do not want or need this or any other pipeline crossing our state. It is not much of a benefit for Iowa, and when it does rupture it will ruin our farmland and possibly our drinking water for many decades if not centuries. These pipelines should not even be considered. The companies behind them are also using strong arm tactics to get land owners to sign, which is or should be illegal and is immoral.

    Thanks for sending me this timely information. July 27./28. will be a showdown before the
    Nebraska Supreme Court re: property condemnation attempts by Transcanada …..seeking
    to gain easements against Nebraska landowners ….” eminent domain ” ….. this for a
    FOREIGN CORPORATION !!! NOT for the common good of Nebraskans,, rather most
    certainly against our interests. Attorney Dave Domina has taken up the cause of these
    people and, we strongly believe, will prevail in the final decision. GO BIG DAVE !

    document (or pamphlet) to be distributed by such as the “Iowa Farmers’ Union” (and,
    of course) my own “Nebraska Farmers’ Union” …… ? and Duane Hovorka’s “Nebraska
    Wildlife Federation” ?? …… Sorry I missed you before the Neil Young concert last Thurs./ +
    “INFO / EXPO” for the good of multiple environmentally friendly causes out in front of
    the Pinnacle Bank Arena …… Had brief skirmish with a Canadian (prominent red
    maple leaves on his white headband) standing in line at beer concession ……. sang him
    the Pipeline “Fight(er) anthem at full volume (which drew applause from several who
    had heard him roar into his sales pitch for the wonderful wealth-producing KXL with its
    thousands of happy, wealthy-becoming employees …… ( he forgot to mention their
    appellation of “scrupeless” ( sorry …… forgot how to get “spell-check” on this newer
    machine !!… just took a stab …..( it’s the sincerity that counts in the end !)

    ( to the tune of that ditty known in Huskerland simply as ” No Place !” ) ….chosen because
    a good bus song (marching song) is one whose melody is remembered even in one’s sleep!)

    ( You can hear the original version with band accompaniment on .)

    ” NO, we don’t want any TARRRRRRR SANDDDDDDS!” !!! Tar sands are bad for YOUUUUUU

    They stink and they poison, the girls and the boys ‘an (‘un) …..

    Iowans reap NO benefit from the Bakken Pipeline! It will pollute our water, our air, and damage our health when it LEAKS…as we KNOW it will.
    Citizens should not be forced to provide land for this horrible project!!
