I feel, when we had the chance, that we should have limited the drilling of wells to 5 per year....and give state lands the first dibs on that drilling.....would have prevented us moving forword the way we did....

I wonder if they added to this campaign some of the other facts such as rising crime rate, unaffordable housing, skyrocketing costs for groceries, utilities, the absurd property values and other taxes, but yet they complain that tax collections are down(people will shop in other places when being taken advantage of)and what about the 300 employees Hess supposedly just laid off, you don't here about those. Is all the crime and filth and the garbage laying everywhere really worth paying exactly the same or more for the price of gas at the pump? Personally I don't F_____G think so. Get out and go home we do not want you.

Was North Dakota Job Service sight shut down for maintenance yesterday late afternoon? Yes.

Perhaps the system overloaded when the 25,001 posting came in.....

"Good food for thought here. Perhaps Job Service is a little busy and can't keep its job openings site maintained properly"

Or, political pattingmyback is alive and well!

Call Nick Smith from BisTrib and ask him how he confirmed his story 3-17.

Who's the investigative reporter from MDN?

Irregardless, when you want bodies you have responsibilities-Right?

How about Keystone XL? 1,000,000 to 500,000 to 120,000 to 42,000 to 2500, to 3500 to 12,000 to 18,000 to 35 permanent jobs? Wow, wish I could sell my bank on that business plan!

How about the Bakken at 70,000 by 2020? Yesterdays news???

Let's start this accuracy accountability in our own back yard instead of always saying that monster(govt.) can never get it right!

I've run into 5-6 people over the last year on my way south heading north with a meth like appetite for dreams of the bakken.....Good luck!

Good food for thought here. Perhaps Job Service is a little busy and can't keep its job openings site maintained properly? I think Job Service can and should try to catch up: people are reading those notices and shouldn't be led astray by incorrect postings.

The world's population is at 7.15 billion people, which means that 7,149,300,000 choose not to live in North Dakota. Most people are clueless and that is good. They don't know if they are afoot or horseback. They choose to live in a police state and reject religion. Each to his own.

Democracy leads to police states, a Republic maintains a sound economy. Democracy is mob rule.

"I hate to say it, but ND is not that attractive to a lot of people."

And it will remain as such.

The very best thing that could be of such good fortune for Nord Dakohda.

Not enough spills and leaks 4 ya yet eh? We pay to clean up the messes they hide and leave. What kind of logic would help them get more workers? Oil is red and their motto is "leave the private sector alone" and "the private sector is best". One thing they r best at is hoarding money and getting Gov't. help. I am tired of giving the koch's and their oily kind an allowance which they spend to buy the Gov't. they favor.

Spend our tax money to lure workers 2 ND oil bus? Republican corporate welfare on display. What is the end goal for ND? There is none because greed knows no limit. The ACA is bad but Corp. welfare is good--it is the republican way. Vote No.

I would be real happy if the oil left and took the windmills along with it.

This economic upturn from North Dakota's stable & somewhat dismal history of being a jobs producer is beyond anyone's wildest dreams. It is because of the oil industry & it's impacts but unlike ND's past of embracing good fortune with prudence, we have an imbalanced reporting of actual statistics.

25,000 job openings can laud anyone who repeats the assertion into first place anything, but are there 25,000 job openings in ND?

Look to the state run Jobs Service where job postings are repeatedly posted by none other than the employer,employment agency & professional job posting queries in redundancy only a mother could love. Not to mention outdated job listings that go back in as many as 6-8 months without audit control & liability for accuracy placed on the poster.

If any presentation required itself to be checked before stated perhaps the opening comment should state to be real, as matter of fact.
