Fix Decaying Pipelines First for Jobs, Health and Safety by Joe Conason

With the Keystone XL pipeline stalled again, now perhaps we can look ahead and consider more promising ways to rebuild our energy system, creating many more jobs than that controversial project ever would. No matter where we look, the far larger issue that still confronts Americans is decaying infrastructure — which emphatically includes the enormous web of oil and gas pipelines crisscrossing the continental United States in every direction.

‘Fundamentally transforming America’ one neighborhood at a time

By Robert Romano Let’s just be blunt. If Congressional Republicans do not defund the imminent rulemaking, “Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing,” by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in the upcoming continuing resolution, they are utterly insane. The rule, now delayed into December, is nothing short of a national, government-directed gerrymandering regime to redraw the zoning of every single […] The post ‘Fundamentally transforming America’ one neighborhood at a time appeared first on NetRight Daily.
