    A-10 Warthogs used LOTS of depleted uranium bullets...they penetrate better than lead or copper clad.

    Dry land you say? Our pipelines are not above ground Cory. We can get drinking water from three formations here, the Judith, Eagle and Claggett. I have wells into the shallow one, cant remember which, that are under 60 feet. I have springs everywhere. Ponds, lakes, reservoirs, rivers. Whats so dry about it?

    I get it, living in sacrifice country, always been the way. From SAC bases to missile silos, to coal mines to gas fields. Nobody comes to protest out here. Its just the cost of doing business, but boy oh boy, that pipeline through the Sand Hills is bad.

    Not sure how it works in other places, but when we have a leak, it surfaces quickly, and is dealt with. Its dirty as hell, but it can be cleaned up.

    I am sure I have mentioned it before, but you know how they re mediate contaminated soil? They haul it out here, and spread it on farmers fields.


    I am absolutely not saying that we should spill oil into every water source we have.......but at one time or another we have spilled oil into every water source we have!

    Those poor slobs that get their water out of our Yellowstone river had a spill a while back, right into the river. It was an emergency for sure, got cleaned up and was very expensive.


    No one came and set up tepees to protest. Where were the tepees when the EPA breached that dam and turned that river orange?

    Everything we do on this planet has a consequence. Some are smaller, some are bigger.

    We killed 1 million Iraqis over oil and politics. Thats a pretty big consequence. We helped kill Qaddafi so he would not sell oil in Dinars, and set up an African currency. Setting the stage for the migrant crisis. How is Europe doing now?


    I agree that oil sands is ugly, ugly. But I bet you could find an article that argues that every hydro carbon based fuel source should "arguably" be left in the ground.

    Hydro is murdering Salmon and minnows, wind is murdering bats and is welfare. I watched a video about huge solar fields raise the air temperature so high on site that birds are literally catching fire while flying near the mirrors. As Paris Hilton would say......That's Hot!


    There are no magic bullets. Every source of energy has its pros and cons, but I am in favor of more diverse options.


    For better or worse these rural sources of energy that we consume so readily, provide important jobs and tax revenue for dumb country folks.


    Yes, Kevin. China is buying oil. We are exporters of crude now.
    Is this not a reasonable place to park?

    We all have our priorities.

    People dont like looking at energy. Dont like oil, gas, coal.

    Would you guys be willing to convert our National Parks to wind and solar farms?

    its not even our oil, its canadas dirty shit. we are just giving them a route so they can sell it. maybe we should pay more for oil and hire more people. At what point is it more worth it to hire a dude and a wheelbarrow than a run a mini loader? i would love to see expensive gas.

    The Canadians producing that oil are not bad people Kevin. It helps pay for their marvelous health care system.

    You should be carful what you wish for. Cheap oil is why there are big, wonderful Cities. Places where there is great culture and camaraderie. Much better than those filthy, stooopid rural areas.

    I would think it would be much harder to live in a rural area with igh gas prices. I dont know. high oil prices might make us less inclined to turn it into one use plastic shit that chokes us. More jobs, less plastic, less crap. farmers wouldnt have to compete with the other hemisphere for customers as it wouldnt be as practical to import new zealand lamb. I think it would solve a lot of problems. Id tax the shit out of it if i were dictator. I would have a lot of fun with my treeservice with expense oil. I have a bunch of ideas that are only worth it with pricey gas.

    There will be no change from using oil, until it's all gone. So hurry up and fill up and drive around. If you really want change,use it up!
