NoTea4Me and Legend,

If you haven't realized this your talking to each other. West versus East just like you promote conservative versus liberal. Until you can compromise we can't move forward.

If you really think it is so great, you can pay the $2,000 a year it costs many of us who r not in oil--and DO NOT ask for oil impact money for eastern nd.

Cont'd.: and to this day we have to explain to our children how our part of the country got such a stupid nickname. on the plus side it teaches us the pathetic nature of arrogance.

M51: your head is on straight and your comment is awesome. the attitude of some in the east reminds me of a similar situation on our east coast. because the rest of the country was west of them--they called the central states the "midwest"

Fargo and Grand Forks get jobs and building but not at rates too fast to handle. They get their taxes cut and get projects paid for by money that just boils up from the ground. They don't live in a cloud of dust, or think everyday that the drive to work might be their last. They don't have their rent double in one month. They actually can get into a restaurant and eat and get out in a reasonable time. They aren't afraid to go out for a night on the town, or even to WalMart. They don't have to deal with an explosion of drugs and prostitutes and crazies with guns, lots of guns. Yeah, it's a lot different experience in the East than the West. What hasn't changed is the East still thinks it needs to tell the West what to do and how to think.

I'm so sick of GF and Fargo thinking the Oil is all Great. All they see are dollar bils. They don't see no wildlife, no good roads, all the accidents, crime etc, but then the majority party in this state only sees so called good and nothing wrong.

Amen to u nt4m on this Sunday morn. Nothing said about the majority of nodaks who only pay the high prices from oil activity and get no benefit. Some are rent-raised out of their homes. The pristine beauty and quiet of western nd is diminished every day. If we had no flaring, no open pits, pipe testing, pipelines instead of trucks, not the most dangerous workplace in the country and oil workers who drove in a sane matter--the letter would be a little easier to swallow. That would involve some "rules" that the right and oil both despise and they remind us of that daily.
