REAL OILFIELD WIVES T-minus 8 Hours and Cleaning
After a long week alone, I wake up and realize today's the day, and my husband will be home in about 8 hours. As I lie in bed and think about all the things that need to be done before he gets home,... Posted on 3/20/13 at 9:10 AM
House legislators Wednesday rejected an oil tax reform bill that would have lowered the oil extraction tax, closed a tax loophole for low-producing wells and set up guidelines for a new tribal tax agreement.
"Buy a home in North Dakota." That was No. 7 on Ann Nicole Nelson's famous bucket list that drew the attention of the New York Says Thank You Foundation. Nelson, of Stanley, died on Sept. 11, 2001, in Tower One of the World Trade Center, where she was working on the 104th floor. Her bucket list was published on her birthday, May 17, 2006, in the New York Times.

Barring sensational developments, it's likely the ballot will pit Republican Rick Berg against Democrat Heidi Heitkamp for the U.S. Senate, Republican Shane Goettle versus Democrat Pam Gulleson for the U.S. House and Democrat Ryan Taylor versus Jack Dalrymple for the governorship.
Republican congressmen, including North Dakota’s own Rick Berg, continue to repeat their party’s rhetoric that America has a spending problem, not a revenue problem. In reality, encouraging jobs tops decreasing the deficit in public opinion polls.
Unless at least three of the Senate’s current tax-and-spend specialists are replaced with reform-minded adults, we can look forward to more of the status quo, where 40 cents of every dollar the government spends is borrowed.
Rep. Rick Berg, D-N.D., lines up with the ranking Republicans in Congress and does not represent the sugar-beet growers in North Dakota or those who use the vitally important Social Security program.
Actually, he represents himself, not the voters of North Dakota.
