Replying to:
USGS Geological Service issued a report in April ('08) that only scientists and oil men knew was coming, but man was it big. It was a revised report (hadn't been updated since '95) 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... 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.' And 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 41 years straight. 2. And if THAT didn't throw you on the floor, then this next one should - because it's from TWO YEARS AGO! 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 mother load 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. Think OPEC just might be funding the environmentalists? Got your attention/ire up yet? Hope so! Now, while you're thinking about it .... and hopefully P.O'd, do this: 3. Pass this along. If you don't take a little time to do this, then you should stifle yourself the next time you want to complain about gas prices ... because by doing NOTHING, you've forfeited 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 is all true. Check it out at the link below!!! GOOGLE it or follow this link. It will blow your mind. < >Posted by irscottyo

Scottyo; May I commend you on your extra effort to not only point out this important story on this forum but for also attempting to agitate the people to act on it in an intelligent concerted way to try to make a difference. You even suggested a simple and easy way of doing it. And the favorite excuse that it was rambling dribble can not be used about your presentation here. Your passion and urgency did not escape me and I could feel your disenchantment as I read on through the following inane responses that actually fell on deaf and dumb ears. ( no real offence intended to anyone in particular)( It is my intention to offend every damn* one of us) I have felt it myself on this forum many times along with ruthless ridicule to boot in my numerous attempts to stir folks to action. ( However I do not post as accurately as you and others) I don't quite get it when we are facing probably the most dire set of circumstances our Country has faced since our founding. We may just be witnessing our National Death. and most of the people on here, rather than expending just a little extra effort when things of this magnitude are brought forward revert so quickly back to their soap operas, shoe shopping, jerking off in the park, or whatever other outrageous daily distraction that pops up in the mass comedia!! and last but certainly not least, the endless " My Party Is Bigger than your Party" *Bullshit!! All the while failing to grasp that there is not a dimes worth of difference in either of these Scavenger *Bastard clubs. Not a Dimes worth!!! This is not the first time I have caught you passionately stirred either. I recall a night just before Christmas that you let your light shine beyond your enlightening art work. You have been associated with this forum longer than I and I have not gone back to the beginning to see if you might have flamed out after perceiving the hopelessness of trying to unite probably any group of people and not just this group. It holds true of most groups unfortunately. I did e-mail every person on my list and with your permission I will post this entire exchange on my blog and tag it heavy and send off into the blogosphere. This kind of effort on anyone's part is never wasted. And thanks for your attempts at intervention in the past but brother I don't believe you can save me. I'm too far gone. TP.
