    Ahem...Mr. Head ( as in "jug" )...my comments obviously started out referring to North Dakota, and as such my comments regarding housing prices, which have been excessively inflated due to the recent oil boom were to be expressly implied to reflect same. Interestingly enough...you so far, are the only person not understanding that.

    I sincerely apologize for not being absolutely kindergarten specific and clear in my comments. I will make every attempt in the future to do so as to not confuse your PEA-BRAIN.

    WELL EXCUSE ME -

    And so it goes
    Reliable sources, ie; top Business analysts and company executives are reporting oil has dropped so low up in N.D. that they're PAYING to haul off hi-sulpher crude, and the Koch Bros are offering $.050 a barrel, as opposed to $13.50. 15,000 wells will be capped. Expected to be around 10,000 layoffs, and home prices have tanked ( well no kidding ). Iran dumping more oil in the market will only exacerbate the situation. What a great time for my cross-country motorhome trip!!!
    Reports show a "gas war in MN or ID I think, w/gas as low as $.46. WTF??? I'm seein' $1.63 across the street in Albuquerque, down from $1.79..UP from $1.47...ALL IN THE LAST 3-WEEKS. Hmmmm?? Who's fuckin' who ?

    Shell has abandoned offshore drilling in Abu Dabi, propane & natural gas has lost 67% of value. With crude elsewhere at/below $30 it looks like the oil companies are squeezing the last out of the cash cow, as prices have NOT gone down anywhere I've seen from N.M. to Nevada.

    The CBO is forecasting up to 10 years of very slow recovery from O'dumasses booming frickin' economy. Throw in Bernie Sanders' HUNDRED OF BILLIONS in proposed tax hikes,& we WOULD be screwed beyond recognition. Thank Buddah HE won't make it.

    At least after the election our Jet-A fuel & aircraft maintenance bills should come down bit. Hopefully.

    Excuse me O' knowledgeable one for not being perfectly clear about where you might be referring too. That's why I ask if you were referring to a specific location, as nearly all of the Country IS NOT experiencing what you say.
    The reason for my inexcusable lack of understanding may have come from the fact you talked about NORTH DEKOTA, KOCH BROTHERS (KANSAS), IRAN, CROSS-COUNTRY-MOTOR HOME TRIP, MINNESOTA, IDAHO, ALBUQUERQUE, SHELL (Dutch origins), Abu Dhabi, NEW MEXICO, AND NEVADA.
    As far as the price of homes droping in NORTH DAKOTA, the majority of the country really doesn't care.

    I'd also suggest you might need to buy larger panties, apparently the ones you have on are too tight.
    Also, it's Abu Dhabi, with an h. fyi

    Might I suggest you only communicate with people of substance? You know, those with an identity that is verifiable rather than some troll posting nonsense from his mother's basement? When you are an absolute nobody, you have nothing to lose or gain. Those of us with verifiable identities actually have reputations that we carry with us. This "ignore" feature really shovels the crap out of the discussion.

    That's good advice! Wish I would have listened to it sooner.

    Statistics


    Latest U.S. Statistical Map:

    Make sure you read to the bottom...Quite an eye opener!

    California
    New Mexico
    Mississippi
    Alabama
    Illinois
    Kentucky
    Ohio
    New York
    Maine
    South Carolina

    These 11 States now have More People on Welfare than they do Employed! Last month, the Senate Budget Committee reports that in fiscal year 2012, between food stamps, housing support, child care, Medicaid and other benefits, the average U.S. Household below the poverty line received $168.00 a day in government support. What's the problem with that much support? Well, the median household income in America is just over $50,000,which averages out to $137.13 a day. To put it another way, being on welfare now pays the equivalent of $30.00 an hour for a 40-hour week, while the average job pays $20.00 an hour.
    Furthermore:

    There are actually two messages here. The first is very interesting, but the second is absolutely astounding - and explains a lot. A recent "Investor's Business Daily" article provided very interesting statistics from a survey by the United Nations International Health Organization.

    Percentage of men and women who survived a cancer five years after diagnosis:
    U.S. 65%
    England 46%
    Canada 42%


    Percentage of patients diagnosed with diabetes who received treatment within six months:
    U.S. 93%
    England 15%
    Canada 43%


    Percentage of seniors needing hip replacement who received it within six months:
    U.S. 90%
    England 15%
    Canada 43%


    Percentage referred to a medical specialist who see one within one month:
    U.S. 77%
    England 40%
    Canada 43%


    Number of MRI scanners (a prime diagnostic tool) per million people:
    U.S. 71
    England 14
    Canada 18


    Percentage of seniors (65+), with low income, who say they are in "excellent health":
    U.S. 12%
    England 2%
    Canada 6%


    And now..for the last statistic:
    National Health Insurance?

    U.S. - NO
    England - YES
    Canada - YES


    Check the last set of statistics!!


    The percentage of each past president's cabinet... Who had worked in the private business sector...prior to their appointment to the cabinet. You know what the private business sector is; a real-life business...not a government job.

    Here are the percentages:


    T. Roosevelt..............38%
    Taft............................. 40%
    Wilson ......................
    .52%
    Harding....................... 49%
    Coolidge..................... 48%
    Hoover........................
    .42%
    F. Roosevelt................. 50%
    Truman........................ 50%
    Eisenhower.................. 57%
    Kennedy....................... 30%
    Johnson...................... 47%
    Nixon............................ 53%
    Ford............................ 42%
    Carter......................... 32%
    Reagan....................... 56%
    GH Bush...................... 51%
    Clinton ........................ 39%
    GW Bush..................... 55%

    Obama.............. 8%

    This helps explain the incompetence of this administration: ONLY 8% of them...have ever worked in private business!
    That's right!Only eight percent---the least, by far, of the last 19 presidents!And these people are trying to tell our big corporations...how to run their business? How can the president of a major nation and society...the one with the most successful economic system in world history, stand and talk about business...when he's never worked for one? Or about jobs...when he has never really had one? And, when it's the same for 92% of his senior staff and closest advisers?They've spent most of their time in academia, government, and/or non-profit jobs. Or...As "community organizers."
    "Jealously" is an ugly emotion!

    And this bring up another point and question....out of those employed, what percentage is employed in the private sector?
    Answer: Not Enough!

    I am surprised Louisiana and Arkansas isn't on that list of more on welfare than are employed. I know down the I-20 corridor that is the case. Pretty much from Shreveport, LA to Atlanta, GA.

    Sorry for your loss.
    As you need not be reminded, but there is much more to a "bad economy" than concerning economic statistics and unemployment. There are times when the damage tolls are very painful and too staggering for words.... only sorrow......

    This single line describes you in spades.

    The US has been producing (despite O's attempt to curtail drilling) a large amount of oil. But just enough to not flood the market.
    Once O removed the sanctions on Iran, they have purposely flooded the market.
    They know history. Not like our liberal idiots. Iran knows that flooding the market (like Reagan did in the 80's to bring THE USSR to it's knees), the US economy will tank.
    These are the Iranian friends Kerry and O are touting. Wanting death to Americans. The Iranian people love the west. Unfortunately, when we had the chance to help the people of Iran make a change in the country, our idiot in charge sat on his hands and left them hanging.
