Keep up that "logic" of yours, centerish. Class envy is never pretty.

Baffled, I like the flat tax idea too. Cut out all the loopholes and just pony up the percentage. Life would be so much simpler, and freedom from the "deduction shuffle" would be priceless.

I expect our state's officials that have been elected/appointed/hired to regulate the oil industry to do their job to keep North Dakotans safe from some of the results of that industry.

Am I surprised? I'm better informed, and I hope those who mess up, make mistakes, get careless, cut corners to save money, etc., will be held responsible for cleanup.

That's the best way for "Oil Can." If you can't, don't come here to do business. Period.

For Whom Does the Bell Toll? It Tolls for Thee.

Gosh can't remember who wrote it...was it authored by willies or Mike Quinn?

Question is...should I double post this?

First of all Notso centerfield, the 12-17% you claim that is paid in by the "rich" is more in one year than you pay in during a one month period. Get over it, people make more than you do because they constantly push themselves while you count your food stamps thinking poor me.

PJ, that comment was racist.

I was wondering if you had notified Mr. Radig's office of the locations of your sites, since he obviously does not realize that they exist. Oh, and no one is asking for you to justify your welding experience (actually, no one cares), just to back up your statements that there were radioactive disposal sites in ND. There seems to be some differences between your assessments and the State Office of Waste Management.

Can you imagine how we treated all the other countries where we developed oil production. I think the ND citizens are getting a slight taste of what the middle east citizens have been dealing with.

I am guessing that the people of Noonan, Watford City,and Crosby don't agree with you. Oh, and you are right... I don't believe you either since radioactive disposal sites are built and regulated by better people than you. At this point, the disposal sites are all located out of state. But, then, you probably knew that. By the way, where are these five sites you built....After all, if you build them, they will come....By the way, my source is Scott Radig, Director of waste management for the State.

BTW, before we blame big oil for all of our problems, have we checked out our own city fathers that continue to drive us into a hole?

1. If you were receiving a royalty check, you would sing a different tune.

2. "The Old ND" is dead, welcome to the "new" ND that provides thousands of jobs to those that need it.

3. Spills are just more visible now, how many spills were there by Lansford, Glenburn, etc when the were hitting oil out there up until the mid 80's?

4. You all whine too much. Sell your house and get more than the $100 you would for the same house in the rest of the country. Sell high, buy low, move to Arizona already.

5. If I had a nickel for every time "oil" was blamed I could by 10, 000 houses in Arizona.

Do u think u or bismarck is aware of all of the abandoned filter socks? 20 years from now when pollution from spills or pipe leaks r discovered routinely, and no owner can b found, western nd land may be more a liability than an asset.

This oil boom has sure taken away the true beauty we once enjoyed in this state(Thanks for selling us out)The sooner it ends the better. With all the trucks and traffic I would assume for every barrel of oil brought out of the ground, Five barrels are being burned in trucks, but as Williston says we welcome you with open arms, well keep building maybe we can get rid of some of the trash in MINOT. Heard the laurel MT spill reached lake Sakakawea, its just a matter of time and old sak will look like the gulf spill.

Yall don't hear everthing. What you hear on TV/Radio is just a trickle. Once you learn of the amount it will just make you sick.

Are you surprised that primary election turnout was the lowest in decades -- with only about 2,400 total votes cast?

Old King Coal was a merry old soul

And a greedy old soul was he;

He called for his pipe, he called for his bowl,

And he called for his fiddlers three.

The tioga spill was small and shallow per oil--yet it will take 2 years to clean up and the hole was 30 feet deep when last reported. The spill at Laurel MT(which should now be in lake Sakakawea) was 98% recovered per oil and 1% recovered per the State of Montana. Oil has proven they cannot be trusted. Filter socks 4 everyone. Minot gas was 3.59,3.69, 3.59 and 3.64 in 3 weeks. That big bakken find sure lowered and stabilized the price of fuel huh?

Go 2 the ND Resource Council website and if the spills on their map don't surprise u, nothing will. ND Oil Can spill at will and they do. "Take that to Washington" they chanted. How about u take the crowded and polluted mess called western ND to Wash? What a pigsty the U.S. would b if every business boom destroyed the land as this oil work does.

I don't think there are any more, I just think they are getting reported more, as there were cover-ups before! Money talks and cover-up money was being paid to who???
