    Some interesting facts about oil... lets see if BHO supports AMERICAN oil...

    This came across my Email box... there is a link at the bottom to verify it:

    As you may know, Cruz Construction started a division in North Dakota.

    They sent every Kenworth (9 trucks) they had here in Alaska to North Dakota and several drivers.

    They just bought two new Kenworths 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, ND 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 host said to Forbes, "I am going to ask you a direct question and I would like a direct answer. How much oil does the U.S. have in the ground?"

    Forbes did not miss a beat; he said, "More than all the Middle East put together."

    The U. S. Geological Service issued a report in April 2008 that only scientists and oil men knew was coming, but man, was it big.

    It was a revised report (hadn't been updated since 1995) on how much oil was in this area of the western 2/3 of North Dakota, Western South Dakota, and extreme Eastern Montana.

    Check THIS out:

    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 (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.

    "This sizable find is now the highest-producing onshore oil field found in the past 56 years," reports The Pittsburgh Post Gazette.

    It's a formation known as the Williston Basin, but is more commonly referred to as the 'Bakken.'

    It stretches from Northern Montana, through North Dakota and into Canada.

    For years, U. S. Oil exploration has been considered a dead end. Even the 'Big Oil' companies gave up searching for major oil wells decades ago. 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 (The Pittsburg Post-Gazette article is) 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 six 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

    and 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.

    Think OPEC just might be 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 time you complain about gas prices, by doing NOTHING, you forfeit your right to complain. (Not to mention the tax revenues which the Gov't could surely use.)

    Now I just wonder what would happen in this country if every one of you sent this to everyone in your address book.



    By the way, this can be verified. Check it out at the link below.

    I'm told Walmart stocks their shelves in Minot and two days later they are empty. People are in campers in every parking lot that will allow it.

    I've been following this for a while.

    This is a rehashed email from a few years back. I think the only changes were going from 41 years of oil to 2041 years of oil..... But if you read the USGS report its actually a years supply........lol

    Shale oil too....not quite light sweet crude......another lol

    And they are working it...extracting this oil.....nobody has made any attempts to shut them down.

    As for the rocky mountain shale ......that shale is under he rocky mountains and we dont have the technology at this time to get to it.

    Theres shale oil in them thar hills........lol

    Stansbury investments.....that should have clued you in right then and there.

    Why are you gleeful to learn that the story is incorrect? Seems strange to be gleeful about that.

    Gleeful? I missed all the smiles and grinning. The whole problem with the story or others that are incorrect and were designed to pull the wool over your eyes to promote a particular political agenda is that fiction becomes fact and bad choices are then made because of it.


    Did you know most of the terrorists of 9-11 came through Canada to the U.S.?

    Well at least that is what many think including a U.S. president hopeful John McCain. Yeah but he was just some politician that didn't get elected. How about someone who's job it is to know these things? How about a U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano? And these people create policy.

    Wow, you read way more into that than I did. I did not read the study, I only commented that I've been following the activity in N. Dakota which is indeed a major boom.


    I think it's a bummer to discover the story isn't true about the scope of the find, not something to have a string of lol..lol..lols about. Not sure how you missed the lols, they are at the end of each sentence corny wrote...lol.

    This is one of the most prevalent non-truths about Canada USA relations that just disgusts me. We are both each other's very best friends in this very nasty modern world, and we have (at the governmental/military level) proved it to each other many times.

    Could rant on, but it is just not worth it...

    Corny I had no problem with, I may have misunderstood you though. Just using the terrorist example to show how some of these emails turn into news stories and are believed. I saw quite a few stories get people in forums riled up when they stretch a few facts out of proportion. I know a bit about the oil boom there as I live next door and we are in the same basin with the same deposits. While there is a lot of oil trapped only a fraction is recoverable but that fraction does go a long way.

    I feel ya. When I moved to the caribbean back in the 90's I was so disillusioned by the treatment u.s. citizens received from our bretheren living to our north. Canadians greatly outnumber u.s. citizens down there. I recall often hearing canadians being asked what part of the states they were from and spitting venom at the person asking as if it was such a terrible insult.
    Canadians were down on the u.s. most everytime the opportunity presented itself.

    I recall feeling pretty betrayed as we were both in a foreign land and I sort of looked at those guys as my homies. The types of things said went way beyond a little friendly ribbing. I remember feeling a real sense of anomosity. Not by all of course but by a good lot of them.

    You know, there are A$$holes everywhere, but I have relatives in the USA and they of course have relatives here. I never single out Americans (other than asking for the "serviettes" ), and when in Mexico/Cuba we met several (USA citizens), gave them Canadian flag pins so they would feel more comfortable. I just get PO'd when I hear about the "Ugly Canadian". We are no better than anyone else, and any Canadian who claims we're better is just another BS'r who wants to distance themselves from the REAL facts of life.

    Sorry for ranting, just my worth...
