I’m happy that North Dakota is having a good boom time with the oil rush. Their economy is roaring.
And ours here is withering. Because 3,000 jobs from here went directly there. Jobs shut down here and opened there directly because of policy from the Obama Administration. Because of the actions of Ken “The Loathsome Cowboy” Salazar specifically. A lot of Utah residents are working N.D. right now… I’ve talked to several guys just today that are working over there. Companies fly them back and forth. Making great money. Pumping their economy up like an balloon.
Utah Schools is looking at deep cuts. All the County Governments are looking at deep cuts. Utah is tightening its belt, big time. But North Dakota is booming. “Hey, Ken! Where are those Oil Leases people PAID FOR? Where’s the Money, Ken?” If you didn’t want people drilling there – then don’t put those areas up for lease! Just a thought. Friggen thief.
I’m not bitter against N.D. Not at all… good for them… but the way this shook out is outrageous.
