  1. Yes
  2. Only recently
  3. Too little, too late

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"

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.

1,2,3,4...

And just what is the current president doing about this certain list of things?

1. Having to consider war in the Middle East because things got so bad after he withdrew the troops (good or bad?)

2. Approved the use of drones for many, many military exercises (hawk or dove)

3. Continued tax cuts for the rich for part of his presidential tenure, while overseeing a very sluggish economic recovery (wonderful or not?)

4. Help push through Obamacare and oversee its feckless implementation (peaches and cream, or sour persimmons?)

Ask centerish about this list, because she's an avid administration apologist, looking always for the good and never for the bad.

One fact in general:

Actually, loco, the last premise is true and very deservedly in light of the many, many transgressions of the Bush administration. Now, certainly Bush is the figurehead but he had many, many helpers within the Republican party. His administration will certainly be considered among the worst in history and even though you will wish that Obama will be there too, he will not. Historians are already making the comparisons of this administration without following Faux News or Rush and they rate the Republicans way, way down. They also rank President Obama way higher than your side will admit.

Lets take #1. Since before the beginning of the war, Bush was warned that there was no exit strategy and not to go in. There has been no exit strategy ever. These people have been killing each other for 2000 years and we were supposed to stop it... haha. When is a good time to pull out? How many more had to die to fulfill the Republican agenda? Should Obama have waited another year and sent the troups over for their fourth and fifth tours? Maybe if the Republicans had picked a different leader for Iraq the Sunni's would not be joining the terrorist.

#2 Drones good or bad.... hmmm let me think. I guess if you are a bad guy, it is bad. Well, for them. Would you rather all those terrorist leaders were still alive and operating.
