The Good News


Next time you have to fill up at $3.49/gallon, remember this!!
As you may know, Cruz Construction started a division in North Dakota just 6 months ago.  They send every Kenworth (9 trucks) we had here in Alaska to North Dakota and several drivers.  They just bought two new Kenworth’s to add to that fleet; one being a Tri Drive tractor and a new 65 ton lowboy to go with it.  They also bought two new cranes (one crawler & one rubber tired) for that division.
Dave Cruz said they have moved more rigs in the last 6 months in ND than Cruz Construction moved in Alaska in the last 6 years.
Williston is like a gold rush town; they moved one of our 40 man camps down there since there are no rooms available.
Unemployment in ND is the lowest in the nation at 3.4 percent last I checked.
See anything in the national news about how the oil industry is fueling North Dakota’s economy?
Here’s an astonishing read. Important and verifiable information:
About 6 months ago, the writer was watching a news program on oil and one of the Forbes Bros. was the guest.
The Bakken is the largest domestic oil discovery since Alaska’s Prudhoe Bay, and has the potential to eliminate all American dependence on foreign oil.  The Energy Information Administration sm(EIA) estimates it at 503 billion barrels.  Even if just 10% of the oil is recoverable( 5 billion barrels), at $107 a barrel, we’re looking at a resource base worth more than $5.3 trillion.
“When I first briefed legislators on this, you could practically see their jaws hit the floor.
They had no idea..” says Terry Johnson, the Montana Legislature’s financial analyst.
However, a recent technological breakthrough has opened up the Bakken’s massive reserves, and we now have access of up to 500 billion barrels.  And because this is light, sweet oil, those billions of barrels will cost Americans just $16 PER BARREL !!!!!!
That’s enough crude to fully fuel the American economy for 2041 years straight.
And if THAT didn’t throw you on the floor, then this next one should – because it’s from 2006 !!!!!!
U.. S. Oil Discovery – Largest Reserve in the World
Stansberry Report Online – 4/20/2006
Hidden 1,000 feet beneath the surface of the Rocky Mountains lies the largest untapped oil reserve in the world.
It is more than 2 TRILLION barrels.  On August 8, 2005 President Bush mandated its extraction.
In three and a half years of high oil prices none has been extracted.
With this motherload of oil why are we still fighting over off-shore drilling?
They reported this stunning news:  We have more oil inside our borders, than all the other proven reserves on earth.
Here are the official estimates:
8 times as much oil as Saudi Arabia
18 times as much oil as Iraq
21 times as much oil as Kuwait
22 times as much oil as Iran
500 times as much oil as Yemen and it’s all right here in the Western United States !!!!!!
HOW can this BE?  HOW can we NOT BE extracting this?  Because the environmentalists and others have blocked all efforts to help America become independent of foreign oil! Again, we are letting a small group of people dictate our lives and our economy.  WHY?
James Bartis, lead researcher with the study says we’ve got more oil in this very compact area than the entire Middle East, more than 2 TRILLION barrels untapped.  That’s more than all the proven oil reserves of crude oil in the world today , reports The Denver Post.
Don’t think ‘OPEC’ will drop its price even with this find?  Think again! It’s all about the competitive marketplace, it has to.
OPEC is funding the environmentalists!!!
Got your attention yet?  Now, while you’re thinking about it, do this:
Pass this along.  If you don’t take a little time to do this, then you should stifle yourself the next timeyou complain about gas prices, by doing NOTHING, you forfeit your right to complain.
Now I just wonder what would happen in this country if every one of you sent this to every one in your address book.
By the way, this can be verified.  Check it out at the link below !!!!!!

About Jim G.

I truely believe that what should matter most in life is how you see yourself, not how someone else tries to convince you to see yourself. *****Life is not about "finding yourself"*****its about creating yourself.!!!!! I write and post things here because I like to think I am contributing some things of value to my world. Some times a little humor, some times things with a more serious tone, but hopefully always in good taste. If what I post occasionally bites a politician in the ass, all the better :>)

    Since that time they have found two more formation below the Bakken, one I know as the Three forks at this time the other escapes me, most of the earlier three forks I have heard of are out producing the Bakken average. To bad I let the mineral right go with the house I had in Watford when I sold in in 2007 that would have been about a $500.00 dollars a year the past three years.

    I used to think we had a lot of oil up here in Alaska, but this article proves we don’t need the middle East. I am also sure if we were allowed to open more drilling in Alaska, America would be the number one producer in the world.

      No question about it. Our world doesn’t have to be the way it is. Many of the people in our governments are absolutely the worst enemies of our country. It isn’t only many of the elected politicians, its also the PERMANENT beuracracy who feed at the public trough and benefit for years beyond any elections. They have no reason to want to implement real change and every reason to want to maintain the status quo.
