The end is near

At least in the eyes of this "old man".
Last month or two, things just getting
Nuts. Starting to get an Erie feeling of
Doom....the future just seems to come
To an end.
I know what it is, it is depression....I've seen
It many times...but not in me. know...maybe it is justified.
Just look at things. The rural economy is
Shot. My area has had a big decline, and
The mood is not good.
I was at a meeting not long ago, the rural
Economy numbers going forward are bad.
Looking at crop budgets, none were positive.
I then look at the national is
Almost Scarry...I read and scan my news
Sources that I have for years....but here, Trump
And fox, claim that is all is insane,
I read the data, I look at the numbers ..I see the
Video and interviews, I read and see the testimony...
I know what I know...yet the people here, the
"Editorial policy" and the president says no,
I'm wrong.
Last night at our weekly prayer service, I prayed
For all...and asked for guidance and wisdom.

My health is on the decline....maybe my time
Is becoming near....but.... I can't understand a
Man, and his fallowers just going nuts, doing
Things...and telling us we didn't see or hear
What we indeed did.

This walk issue is tearing the country and me apart.
After a long think...and pray...I see the problem,
And it is Trump. The man does not understand.
It is his way or else and I don't give a dam how
It impacts or hurts someone.
This is a issue that needs to be worked thru.
This idea of saying it is an emergency, I frankly
Don't know a word to call it....
He wants to take money from ongoing disaster
To go twards a wall....which he wants to prepay !!
It will be at least a year before construction can
Start...meanwhile...these people have needs now .
According to a study I read....the total project
Would take a minimum of 10 years...and 10,000
Workers....and the cost.....unable to calculate.

Again I am a loss for words

Now, the nuts here will climb all over this, and
Unsure if the editorial board will allow it, since
It seems some post disappears or move....
Yet others propagate.

So yes, for me, the end is near for me here,
And perhaps other places

How are they becoming millionaires? Why aren’t you? To hear you tell it, it must be pretty easy!! Heard farmers are not getting their welfare and things are getting dicey! That true?

Government didn't pick you to be a loser selfish, you accomplished that all on your own.

Bart, I sure cant complain for how we're doing. And I'm not one to despise another man or family doing well for themselves. But I'm not getting in a bidding war with those with new holes in their pockets.

Energy business unleashed from regulation is what it did it for our area.

Re: The end is near



Fracking was running apace throughout the Obama years. Most of it is being done on private land.


Only real difference is that they found a super sweet honey hole in the Permian Basin that is really gushing, although it is mostly a money loser at $50.


One of the side effects of chronically producing oil below the cost of production is that it subsidizes rising economies like China and India that have to import most of their energy.


Although you can be forgiven for being hysterical over AOC if you're among the tiny percentage of Americans who are really strongly benefiting from this last gasp of the fossil fuel age.

Re: The end is near

No, I'm not in the Permian. An accountant for one of the producers down there said their cost of production in that area is below $50.

I have spent some time down there. Depressing seeing all the rigs stacking up during the last couple years of Obama. The area was taking a beating. Last time I was down, it was busier than the when oil was priced twice of what it is now.

Amazing how under Obama administration they were going bust, yet now it's booming with oil below what you believe to be break even. Surely it has nothing to do with regulations.

And everytime the world is running out of oil and gas, they just happen to find another "largest reserve in history".

Yeah I remember how much oil production Obama was pushing on federal lands.....i bet they were just about to find this. Lolol

Let me know when we run out....I'll be sure and turn over in my grave as they just start producing the next formation with whatever technology has come along in the mean time.
