Your point being? You agree with me that we are put in a sad state of affairs when we look to the government to take care of us, provide subsidies, etc?

mark, it may be unbelievable for a lib like you and others, but NO we are not on the dole, even though we are of age, haven't started SS. If you are gonna play this 'I want my share for what I have had to pay for because of the oil' game, then how about we all get money for all the hassle the welfare games have cost us. You libs have been working overtime to remove each and every private business for wealth redistribution. You have been doing the brainwashing. We are hearing what happens when people depend on government for their every need---sad, isn't it.

Veritas, sure glad you really don't know what I do or don't do or what I agree or disagree with.

Like I said, emphasis on "wild" - your own wild speculation, that is.

Digusted you are a perfect example of Socialism for the rich, and Capitalism for the rest...even if you don't have much to your name,you have been brainwashed by the status quo to believe there is a private sector...your so called "private sector" is getting more government handouts than anyone.

I still think all of us North Dakotans should receive a annual royalty check like the Alaskans receive...since we did overtake them in oil production.

I have to say, bdgi is a prophet!!! My goodness, Obama must have not graduated at the head of his class at Harvard and I am sure that he was not editor of the law review. And, not only that, your source is impeccable. I am surprised he is not on Fox news or something like that. You are still a hater and a racist. You can't run from that can ya. But, you don't really want to, either.

mark, move to Alaska where nearly ALL of the oil being drilled is on state owned land. Here most of it is PRIVATELY owned. I know that eats at your craw----can't redistribute that, at least not yet, but I a'm sure you are working on changing that also.

As it appears as though you could be a little contextually challenged, so let me pose the statement to you again in a more specific manner:

If your aim is to insinuate that big business - in this case the company responsible for the spill - is using it's money to influence public officials not to disclose information to the public, show us some kind of proof, instead of the wild speculation that you're trying to pass off as fact.

In Alaska every person who has resided in the state at least one year receives a check around $1000....we overtook Alaska in the production rankings if I recall...where are our royalty checks ND?

"Favorite hemorrhoid issues"

What does that mean?

On second thought, I just don't want to know...

Well, well, dusty, you are more like Rush every day. This site is about oil spills and the oil industry. You have tried to change the subject three or four times talking about your favorite hemorrhoid issues. When you don't have anything to contribute to the discussion, you bloviate your hatred. Go, dusty, go.

Come listen to a story about a man named Jed A poor mountaineer, barely kept his family fed, Then one day he was shootin' at some food, And up from the ground came a bubblin' crude. Oil that is, black gold, Texas tea. Well the first thing you know ol' Jed's a millionaire, His kinfolk said, 'Jed, move away from there!' They said, 'Californy is the place you oughtta be.' So, they loaded up the truck and moved to Beverly. Hills, that is, Swimmin' pools, movie stars. Well now its time to say goodbye to Jed and all his kin. And they would like to thank you folks fer kindly droppin' in. You're all invited back next week to this locality To have a heapin' helpin' of their hospitality

Hillybilly that is. Set a spell, Take your shoes off.

Y'all come back now, y'hear?

Apathetic citizens will cry out about how this could have happened and all the anti-environmentalists will blame the government for the spill-for surely big business can't be responsible for it. Its not a question of IF but WHEN. FISH NOW.

Dusty, it would seem to me that the best way to eliminate any of the power brokers from buying influence would be to limit the power government has over us. We could start by requiring congress to re-assume the legislative power they've ceded unconstitutionally to the various federal bureaucracies. Then I would recommend congressional and judicial term limits.

"I am not pro on Big Business deciding when & what people are entitled to know."

To which big business are you referring? If you are talking about the parties responsible for the spill, what did you expect? A press conference? The responsible party's primary responsibilities are to notify the appropriate government regulators and rectify it with any injured parties. If the spill is on public land or affects public land, it would then be the responsibility of the government authorities to notify the public. Otherwise, it is a private matter between the party responsible and the parties affected.

If your aim is to insinuate that big business is using it's money to influence public officials not to disclose information to the public, show us some kind of proof, instead of the wild speculation that you're trying to pass off as fact.

There is a plus to the spill at Tioga and if there becomes a spill on the Lake: At least it is Bakken crude, A. which is easier to clean up in case of a spill, B. It is being transported for use in the US, and C. Foreign countries/companies aren't making a ton of profits from the US. We get nothing from Tar sand crude, absolutely nothing. The few jobs it creates is not worth the trouble to have tar sand crude spills all across the US. Now, lets start using the Bakken crude here in the US instead of shipping millions of barrels to Canada every year.

What would Dalrumple do? Well, first of all, he would go to the mailbox and get his government subsidy check for his farm, then he would check with the Hoeven/Cramer to see if he should acknowledge the spill, then check to see if the oil companies check to Hoeven/Cramers campaign funds had cleared, and then he should call on whister to get his views of the situation.
