Do you believe the railroads are trying hard enough to deliver rail cars in time for harvest?

  1. Yes

Good one Baffledbyliberals; they only complain about the price of gasoline they put in their cars, trucks, boats and ski-doo's. Yep, Oil bad. Think about what a mess they would make if the Energy Resources were Nationalized.

Its the SAME STORY every year....no grain cars...but I think it is getting much worst...no improvement! Gee, when the grain prices are low...more cars, but if the grain prices are HIGH, less cars?....just another way to keep prices low for farmers!

See Baffledbyliberals, this is one subject we agree on. The media and hollywood stars who have no idea how the keystone pipe line would work just throw money at a subject and get their message out. It puts fear in people and then what do you know, the public is against it.

The USA has millions of miles of oil pipe lines and they are concerned about 1 more pipe line that would be fitted with newer technology and safer than previous pipe lines running from Alberta to the Gulf. The Media and Tree Huggers need to get a grip. They use oil everyday unfortunately they think it comes from the cell phone store, the gas station, they just don't know where it comes from.

You try to be positive "I do believe everyone is trying their best" and you get downvoted. Unreal. Complain, complain complain.

Tomorrows poll how about we all say something positive. It doesn't matter on what, just say, "It feels good to wake up today" or "Yah, the sun is shining"

Farmers take a hit from oil. kxl is just 1 more pipe yes but it is ten times larger and longer than many existing pipes. 2 pipes already exist 2 move the hardisty tar sand oil--1 moves south and another toward vancover. We can't afford kxl because oil products r too high now just from the bakken. Oil bought the cars 4 a premium and we pay 4 that premium with every oil product we buy. Take that 2 Wash. johnnie o. No kxl until oil stops leaking and the lies. Clean up in aisle Medora harold. Muk schnell.

If u can explain how moving tar sands oil 2 china makes economic sense--i am listening. In Alaska u cannot shoot (hunt) a firearm within a couple miles on either side of their pipe. Do u want 2 prohibit hunting on those thousands of square miles in the U.S.?

Mitt Romney lost the election, and then completely disappeared.

There are myriad ways to help out and give back to the country you love, but with Mitt -- it's 'president or nothing.'

If Romney was so involved in American life that he merited becoming Commander-in-Chief, why did he promptly go back into hiding behind the locked doors of private investment banking?

In 2012, Mitt Romney teamed with the Repub National Committee, spent nearly ONE BILLION DOLLARS -- making it the most expensive failure in American Political history.

In 2012, Barack Hussein Obama teamed with the Dem National Committee, spent over ONE BILLION DOLLARS -- making it the most expensive failure in American Political history. and oh what a failure he's been.

NY Times reported that they each spent one billion dollars.

The problems we face today exist because the people who work for a living are outnumbered by those who vote for a living.

Vote Republican for a real change you can believe in!

Change the subject when railcars and harvest with a little oil mixed in.

It's amazing we could go back to the $$$$ spent in the last election.

BaffledbyBS- Did you even read the TransCanada/Keystone-xl website?

Where is this "close to a million jobs" claim coming from?

So, I'm just going to start over again since this thread has, as usual, gone completely off the rails (pun totally intended)

I remember hearing complaints in past years (pre-oilfield) about these same issues with a lack of rail cars and interruptions of certain rail traffic.

This is nothing new. It only appears that there is a new and convenient scapegoat that too many are all too willing to blame because they didn't set themselves up to benefit from it and now are upset that they feel they're being left behind.

I rode Amtrak several times annually between Minot and the Twin Cities between 2004 and 2011. Before that, I lived in Minot.

Why don't you send your petulant, childish attitude to your parents? You appear to be sorely in need of remediation before you can join the club of grown-ups.

Whatever happened to all that "tolerance" and "big-heartedness" in liberals?

And trolling ND message boards with snide little remarks? Look in the mirror, PJinfinity.

centerish, I'll throw you a big fat fact, just to make you happy...

Democrats have been blaming former Pres. Bush for many things, for many years.

Fact, loco, ?? really... or is it a generalized opinion based on your views.. Oh, you want facts on Bush II? 1. Started war on a sovereign nation based on manufactured lies. 2. Approved the use of torture 3. Almost destroyed the economy with tax cuts for the rich 4. Push through highly expensive programs like Medicare D, a government subsidized gift. Now, that is 1,2,3,4 and I could go on and on. Want more facts on Bush II, because there are tons of them out there.
