What economy?

I think with high inflation and a growing recession we have no economy to watch, but Economy might be some new reality show on TV.

The energy induced cold war leaders/leadership that were put in place by the USA and Russia were eliminated is all we accomplished. But by doing that we managed to save less lives than were killed in my opinion. When it comes down to life or death money somehow becomes less important.

I'm surprised there wasn't a knee jerk "no" majority vote here.

MHW, the surplus of which you speak was only a surplus in the budget for the year. The debt went higher under Clinton too.

So the Minot Daily is asking a stupid question that must have been submitted by Mitch McConnel. This paper is so slanted in its views that it is hard to really believe any of the editorial questions or statements it submits.

Vietnamvet69, the best poll question the minot daily could ask is does Minot need another newspaper.

rickrod, nothing like posting false conclusions. From hispanicbusiness**** While the USA may be dripping in new-found crude oil deposits, and early May supplies were at their highest levels since the early 1930s, issues at a handful of refineries that turn crude into gasoline and diesel fuel underscore how kinks in the supply chain can cause quick surges in what consumers pay at the pump. Gas prices in Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma and Wisconsin have jumped up to 27 cents a gallon in the past week alone. Behind the rise: Outages and extended maintenance has curbed output at refineries in Joliet, Ill.; Whiting, Ind.; Tulsa; and El Dorado, Kan. In Minnesota, regular gas now averages $3.99 a gallon -- an all-time state record.

disgusted, price of gas in Minot today is 4.29 and not 3.99. But I must say your very good at taking info out of the Oil Times Paper, and using it for your talking points.

Veritas, after all your fluff and fury about newspaper polls, why in the world would you 1) bother to cite one and 2) bother us to regard it?

After all, it's just people's opinions, and everyone has one.

What kind of facts are those?

"...the unemployment rate was little changed at 7.5 percent, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today (May 3, 2013)."

Not real robust yet, but we're workin' on it.

4-1/2 years and counting.

Now the tired old talking points can be trotted out again (it's Bush, it's Republicans, it's everybody-else-but-me, it's...) to defend this administration that made promises to "fix" the economy.

Plenty of news stories tell of real small and large businesses facing the pending Obamacare mandates and provisions, which has led to some hesitation, not invigoration, in their hiring decisions.

Folks, we're workin' on it.

Almost looks like our government is stifling jobs, not creating jobs.

rick-Gas prices in Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma and Wisconsin have spiked up to 43 cents a gallon the past week alone. Behind the rise: outages and extended maintenance, which have curbed output at refineries in Joliet, Ill., Whiting, Ind; Tulsa, Okla, and Eldorado, Kansas. While the USA may be dripping in new found crude oil deposits and early May supplies were at their highest levels since the early 1930s, issues at a handful of refineries that turn crude into gasoline and diesel fuel underscore how kinks in the supply chain can cause quick surges in what consumers pay at the pump. Minnesota is particularly hard hit. Regular grade gas averages $4.26 a gallon this weekend -- another all-time state record after spiking to $4.15 Friday. Oil-rich North Dakota, now averaging a record $4.13, is third, ahead of California ($4.06).. USA Today 5/18/13

Well, I am going to deviate just a bit to question if there will be a scandal if the congress votes to send money to Oklahoma for the horrible tragedy that has just occurred. How will three of the five congressmen from Oklahoma vote on the funding after they voted against giving funding to Hurricane Sandy devastation. Oh, and by the way, they are talking ef4 or more tornado. Devastating storms- like they said will come with global warming... What say you right wingers.

Now, what would people say when you are fishing? Got him. I knew one of you would rise to the bait, Billdont messed around with it, but you dusty, sucked it up hook, line, and sinker. You , who has politicized every death you could. You, who wrote again and again about those who died in Bengazi. You are a nitwit. Everyone is stunned by the devastation and death. Everyone is thinking about those people and praying for them. But, you disty, never miss a beat.

Yep, dustoff, you surely are among the dumbest posters on the any site. After spending 2-3 posts around 8:30 pm criticizing my post (which was specifically set up to bait you). Then you post again about 9:15 pm on a Senators comments on global warming. Sure did not take you long to change spots and go political. It really shows how shallow and hateful you really are. It also shows how little memory you have left. What a loser.
