I am going to post this.  I will say I have not verified any of it but I will.  I am so busy right now that I don’t have the time to verify it all but I felt very strongly about sharing this.  THIS WILL MAKE YOU MAD...AND IT WILL MAKE YOU THINK!  I’m telling you my friends...we are being majorly being screwed by our government and our special interest groups!  Somebody is making some big bucks and it “ain’t ” us.  frown

Here it is....

OIL - you better sit down. ..  

Here’s an interesting 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.” Please read below.

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... 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 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
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
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.


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 is all true. Check it out at the link below!!!

    • Mary, thank you for alerting us to this. I hadn’t heard about it.  

      It’s such a huge situation, that I’m going to have to study your links and do some reading before I even know what to think about it.

    • We have plenty of oil, that has been known for years. Problem is if we drill our own the prices WILL go up as the pay will be high for the employees.  

      Now, most likely all these oil tycoons will do it, but then they will hire illegals as if they have to pay Americans to do the job, it may take from their pockets! And God forbid the one percent of the rich population have to share their money!

    • YAY Mary!! estatic

      And that’s what so sad. All of our companies go overseas, illegals, anything for cheap labor. Don’t they get that this is a huge part of our unemployment as well? And this has been going on long before Obama, Bush etc. This is a govt. thing we need to stop. Bring our work back home!!

      GM Bankrupted Detroit, all on their own for cheap labor. Get rid of a few jets dudes, stop all the extra perks and be human. Pay people what they are worth.

      Walmart, after Sam Walton died, his sons got greedy and did not follow his ideals... made in America.  

      Greed sucks!!tongue out

      ok I got off track!! lol

    • I’m a bit confused/curious.  Specifically which of the oil field jobs do you expect would be filled by illegal aliens?

      I ask because that's not the case here in Texas, even though the state has a deep-rooted history in the oil industry, and  is near the US-Mexico border.  Jobs in the oil field pay very well for a variety of reasons.  Typically, US citizens line up for those jobs, and illegal aliens are not found working in the oil fields here.  So I'm unclear why it would be different in those northern states.

    • Hi Tamra...I was hoping you would shed some light!  To be honest...I really do not know about illegals in the oil industry.  I just don’t want ANY ILLEGAL TO BE EMPLOYED ANYWHERE...but I will admit...I really do not know that information.  estatic  But it is good to know that it seems to be no illegals working in the oil fields in Texas.  heart you know anything about any of these oil fields mentioned?

      You got that right.,,“drill baby drill“.
      Just think what would happen for our economy...if we started using our OWN OIL....and not everyone elses! If all of this is absolutely TRUE...this is HUGE!

    • Mary, I read your links and did a little Googling, and I do believe you‘re right about this. (Couldn’t get the “.gov” link to work, hello, tongue out , but there’s a lot of information out there.)

      Thank you for finding this - it IS huge.
