Of course. The second question sounds like blackmail.

I want one for my apartment. Can it block noise from the street?

With Trudeau elected PM he has been quoted as saying pipelines are a safer way of transporting oil. But the US Congress has to get behind the project first.

I know of several churches that are putting protective covers on their prayerbooks to keep them for being damaged or soiled.

Those are called missal shields.

Are you talking about Reagan’s Star Wars missile defense system?

That was a ruse to spend Russia into bankruptcy, and it worked.

@ibstubro No. It is for a ground middle defence in the Canadian artic to protect from north Korea and Russia

Oh. Then the US has the Canadian Buffer Zone against Russian missiles?
Does N.Korea have to go up an over to get to the US?

I think Keystone is on the backburner? Crappy oil at crappy rates with a contentious pipeline?

No, but if you will take all these Meskins from us, maybe we can talk.

Oh, and the pipeline will need to run along the border to act as a fence to keep both of y’all out!
