It can be done: More than 10,000 protesters surrounded the White House on Sunday calling on President Obama to reject the proposed Keystone XL tar sands oil pipeline from Canada to the Gulf Coast. The protest came exactly a year before the 2012 election, and the pipeline is shaping up to be a major political issue. Last week, President Obama said for the first time he will make the final decision on whether to approve the controversial 1,700-mile pipeline proposed by TransCanada, which would transport oil from the Alberta tar sands fields to refineries in Texas. Up until now, Obama said the final decision rested with the State Department. "[Sunday’s protest] really underlined that this has become not only the biggest environmental flash point in many, many years, but maybe the issue in recent times in the Obama administration when he’s been most directly confronted by people in the street," said leading environmentalist Bill McKibben, a key organizer in the protest

Ok, roninxian, what would you really like know. You seem to be just "spinning" words to take up sp ...
Oh, I'm not spinning words. It is YOU whose words and concepts change with each posting. All I am saying, and have said, in this posting of yours is that you don't have both of your oars in the water.
I have disputed all you have propounded here yet you never have any back up to your claims except for "just wait and see". I have made a mental not to "wait and see". But I'm afraid I'm going to be so disappointed when you don't show up in Washington, D.C. Or at least if you do, there will not be 3,000,000 but only 1, 2, or 3, wondering, "where is everyone else."
Protesters will press on with their sit-in at an Istanbul park, an activist said Saturday, defying government appeals and a warning from Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan for the two-week standoff that has fanned nationwide demonstrations to end.
