Stay away from stanley, ND. They are a cruel people there. They treat outsiders like crap. They think they can rake in the money without having to change. Just ask some of the Natives south of stanley. They have been treated poorly for many years, and they are suppose to be neighbors. Preachers in this area are afraid to loose there job, if they tell the residents in stanley, that they are wrong in how they treat people. Go to kenmare or tioga. They are much more pleasant and receptive.

Here's a question...How come Iraq's oil belongs to the people of Iraq....and in this country it belongs to individuals, corporations, etc.? I know, I know capitalistic and all, but aren't we making Iraq a capitalistic country too. What is it, different rules for capitalistic there, then here? Take a good look at what we say and do for other countries, and then look deep into ours and find the double standards or lack there of any at all. These are our leaders and models...???..hmmm...??? I think we need to re-group , like a totally new group.

Here's the answer. How is it you own your house? Car/ ect? You bought it. Same with oil rights. Its called democracy.

Because until now their govt owned the oil...so now the US is trying to get the people to have a stake in their country's future by offering the oil revenue etc....

Of course we are trying to make iraq capitialist country...thats the W's plan all along..

Dear Queenie,

When the girl from Brooklin, NY sees the rent costs, she will giggle. Remember, everything is relative.

they figure this bakken formation will taper off in 20 years. the current rate that americans use gas, if i remeber is 20 million gallons a day.this is only a 20 day supply in relaity. we pay the most for gas where all the oil wells are at. but the big cities get it cheaper,we need to curb big city appetites like minneapolis mn,and others, raise there price of gas give us the cheaper price here because when i go to the bigger cities 1 person to a car,start using buses and train service.and maybe 1 trip to the mall a week not every day.

I'm sorry. I misunderstood you. Keep on being good and moral. There is nothing wrong with loving yourself until Mr. Right comes along.

It would be better if you did not hate this waitress, but just felt sorry for her. Not that you have to have anything to do with her. Don't mention names, we don't need to know, and you're just making het a celebrity.

You certainly don't need a cheater. You deserve real love.

Possibly billions of barrels of oil in North Dakota? More than Alaska? No, that can't possibly be true ... the democrats told us we can't solve our energy needs by drilling ... so why bother?
Go out and fill those tires with air ... yep ... that is the true, enlightened pathway to energy independence.
