"trying to figure it out just hurts my brain"
Please see a doctor immediately. Something that simple should not be painful.
Reread these posts and tell me who are the ones that are griping and complaining 50 cal. It certainly isn't the picnic group. And while you're on the computer, look up the definition of hypocrisy. Perhaps you can post your picture there. Pathetic indeed.
Isn't everyday Pride Day for straights?
The correct spelling is Bakken, cantstandtexans, but you are absolutely right about its importance to energy development in this country.
Some oil analysts are calling North Dakota the next Saudi Arabia of North America, with a value of 9 trillion (yes trillion) dollars in recoverable oil in the Bakken. This is a huge oil reserve, the largest ever discovered under land in the lower 48.
Recent wells drilled into the Bakken are producing up to 2000 barrels a day of light sweet crude, the preferred oil for making gasoline. Payoff for some wells is as short as 6 months, so a lot of players are trying to get in on the action. Oil executives are moving into the Minot/Williston area and one of them was quoted as saying that the Bakken gives them a 100 year extension on oil exploration. It is estimated that North Dakota will eventually surpass TEXAS in oil production in the next twenty years. Now there's something to smile about cantstandtexans.
North and South Dakota are both considering building new oil refineries as is one of the Indian Reservations in western ND. It will be a few years before all of this development affects the oil markets, but it will help make the US much less energy dependent on Nigeria, Venezuela and the middle East.
One of the reports I read said there is a large unexplored region of Saskachewan that is likely to contain huge reserves of crude oil also. Right now, they don't have the oil rigs necessary to explore for oil, they're too busy getting at the proven reserves in the Bakken.
This is great news for the US. When politicians like Mark Udall state that "we can't drill our way out of high oil prices," I have to laugh. The Bakken can and will make us less dependent on others. Will it lower the price of oil? Maybe. But at the very least, we have to do SOMETHING!
Try a Google search for Bakken Shale Oil. Read the reports. We do have oil in this country. Now put that in your pipe Mr. Germond, and smoke it.
Believe me Craig gal, I found Heaven in Steamboat two weeks ago and haven't been the same since. Now if he would only return my calls........
Name it after the hospital on South Park, Hells Pass Hospital. Steamboat's hospital should be renamed Heaven's Gate Hospital and then we would have a choice of going to Heaven or Hell.
That $15 that was supposed to be my fair share to pay for the hospital, magically turned into $50. Maybe Samantha can chime in here and lie to us some more about how little this is going to cost us. How about it Sam? I could use some more lies to make me feel better. Please, lie to me!
My property taxes in Craig increased !00% from last year. I am stunned. A 100% increase in ONE year. This isn't taxation, this is theft.
