this is awesome

North Dakota citizens may abolish property taxes, allowing them more control over government spending. Nearly 30,000 signatures were collected to place the people's initiative on the ballot in June, 2012 that would constitutionally abolish all property taxes in North Dakota. This landmark measure supports property rights, small government and freedom advocates around the country. If the initiative is successful, North Dakota will be the first state to abolish all property taxes, both state and local, and will provide a model for the other states to do the same. North Dakota may be the first state to kick off the property rights revolution!

This what happens when folks are allowed to develop the resources that they have.  The left has done everything in its power to derail the use of our own energy sources.  They think that they can kill capitalism by killing the supply of energy to run it.  Zero has put the pipeline on ice to appease his socialist base, but did not outright ban it, to appease his union workers who need energy to create union jobs.

 

I was reading in a magazine that covers the entire railroad industry and they have come up with a "run around" the blocks by the left.  They are still hauling the oil down to the refineries in Texas by putting it in long unit trains of tank cars and shipping it anyway.

 

And who is getting the biggest share of the tank car unit train business???  It is BNSF (Burlington Northern Sante Fe) Railroad.   Who owns the BNSF Railroad?   Why, it is the good friend of Zero, .... Warren Buffet.

 

I am a big fan of railroads and rail freight and it is great to see the rail industry get a boost ,which will make for better rail infrastructure that will help everyone.... but it more than curious how the obama administration finds a way to put tons of money into the pocket of one of his supporters.

Re: this is awesome

North dakota has windfall oil revenues that have recently came on thescene. TeXas and Alaska both benefit greatly from  oil revenues and neither has state income taxes. It's remarkably easy governming when you have adequate revenues.

 

Obama has had declining revenues with millions out of work and needing government assistance. Somehow that makes Governor Perry and former governor Palin brilliant financial managers.

 

Why isn't the federal government awash in oil revenues fro all the oild that is harvested on federal lands? Why oh why pray tell me the answer to that question? 

 

Could it be that the Oil companies have bought or rented the legislative body as have the banksters?

Re: this is awesome

This one statement shows that you might not be telling all the sides of the story.

 

"Combined with Republican-led concerns about contamination from pipeline leaks in the Nebraska Sand Hills, and possible conflicts of interest in the State Department's handling of the permit, the late surge succeeded in blocking approval, at least for the time being."

 

There was great concern that the route of the pipeline through the Nebraska Sand Hills could put that area at risk if any major leak occurred there.  I'm pretty sure there are some political motives also but there are also environmental issues also.  You guys paint Obama as the greatest conspirator of all time.  Then call him the stupidest person in the world in the next breath.

Don't care. If this goes through in nd you'll actually own your land instead just renting it from government.

Re: this is awesome

They had a call in info meeting on the Keystone pipeline on the radio. Did you know, that for every barrel of oil transported, a unit train spills 10X as much oil as a pipeline? Did you know there are already over 2000 miles of pipelines in the Nebraska sand hills, over the Ogalala aquifer, with zero contamination from them? did you know Keystone already has a pipeline going through, nicknamed Keystone one? lastly, do you know which state likely has the biggest oil reserve in the US? I say likely, because exploration is severely limited. would you believe California? this assuming the answer guy was honest.

That would be Johanns, the governor. However, Nelson, a Dem, is also voicing concerns. The two biggest forces I know of opposing it are the Sierra Club, and Pheasants Forver, two groups who rarely seem to agree around here.
