2/14 Robert F. Kennedy JR: On His Arrest & The Keystone Pipeline

February 14, 2013

Robert F. Kennedy Jr, explained why he was arrested for protesting the Keystone XL Pipeline at the White House yesterday, why the Pipeline is fraudulent, how it will destroy local economies and commons, why in cases where democracy has failed civil disobedience is necessary, how oil companies have bought Congress, why private corporate power is the greatest threat to democracy, how dirty industries run off corporate welfare, the job creation myth and why Kennedy does not think that the Pipeline will be approved.

On The Better Half: Ron Paul sues supporters through the UN, Marco Rubio offers ludicrous reason for opposing increasing the Minimum Wage, Scott Brown finds his true calling heads to Fox, Random Rush and your calls and IMs.

And keep the conversation going on the morning thread!
