About

Hello.  Thank you for reading my blog.  I wanted to write this blog to inform people from out of state, what it is like to live in Dickinson, North Dakota, to give them the truth, so that they are prepared if they choose to come, or perhaps they will choose not to come once they find out what it will be like.  Secondly, people in Dickinson who have lived here for a short while can read my blog to get some information, and see that they are not alone in trying to figure out what is going on.  Lastly, people who have lived in Dickinson for most of their lives can see what other people think of their town, and what other people experience in Dickinson.

I am in my forties.  I have lived and worked in seven different states.  I have worked in healthcare, construction, engineering, oil field, and government.  I have worked as a laborer, a foreman, a supervisor, a manager, and as a business owner.

  1. Hello Citizen,

    There are a few fallacious statements throughout your blog, mainly hasty generalizations; however, the vast majority of what you have written here rings true enough to forgive a few frustrated exaggerations. I was born and raised here and I’ve never really fit in all that well. I can fake it somewhat, but it’s draining.

    Dickinson is a college town with a modest number of people that hold degrees (earn is a term I use loosely given the state of our education system), but apparently in all those years of school nobody mentioned that isn’t the end. I attended one year of college level education toward a Computer Information Systems Degree through DeVry. I opted for a good mix of generals and focused courses such as logic and programming, C+, a math refresher, english, psychology and nutrition. I maintained a 4.0 GPA until the last half of my last semester, where I failed to turn in a project with which I wasn’t satisfied.

    That may seem like a silly decision at first glance, a feeling of discontent was beginning to brew. In high school I wasn’t big on homework. I tested well most of the time and had a fairly average GPA with a dip here and a spike there. So what gives? Did I suddenly become more responsible, was I really this bright all along, or were the courses just a bit too easy? I lean toward the latter. I wasn’t about to continue paying in excess of 15k per year for a fancy piece of paper when I have access to equivalent or superior information for the cost of my internet connection. It is that moment that a term I had heard in class clicked, life long learning. I was then most definitely not continuing that sham. Outside of vocational and a handful of other knowledge-centric fields, virtually all those remaining are better suited to apprenticeships, or in house training geared toward the industries specific requirements. They have to do that anyway to some extent. It’s a gimmick we’ve been conditioned to accept, one that few people pause to critically analyze.

    I mean no disrespect to people that hold degrees. I’m sure some percentage of those people did take education seriously, earned those degrees and continue the admirable search for greater knowledge and understanding to this day. I certainly haven’t stopped.

    The reason I touched on that particular subject is to lend credence to what follows. The supposed educated among us here are none too bright, certainly there are exceptions. There is a pervasive taint of mediocrity in Dickinson, and the concept of accountability is all, but unknown. Businesses get away with shoddy work performed by trainees, improperly trained staff or staff that ought to be eliminated. Yet, they will charge a premium rate. As you have mentioned, they keep wages as low as they can. I’ve heard people around here refer to employees as an expense. Employees are not an expense, they are an investment. Raises are typically underwhelming, one size fits nobody, formulas. That’s another example of a lack of engagement by owners and managers. Evaluations tend to be the employee vs employer. Most of the time they have no idea about how well you perform or all the extra things you do, but they do have the time sheet that shows every time you punched in 3 minutes late. Oddly, the negatives are weighed twice as heavy as the positives, resulting in the middle of the road or lowest raise. My, I feel valued and that my efforts are paying off. 3 weeks later I accept a 1-2 dollar upgrade elsewhere.

    I overheard a guy complaining about losing workers to another company for a measly dollar raise, as if the employee was somehow in the wrong. If they were proficient, give them the dollar. When they are only paying 12 to 15, 1 dollar is significant.

    What good is an “education” that one does not draw from, maintain and build upon? Throughout my life I have been stricken with an unsettling realization as I observed those around me. Eventually I recognized the sensation through the recounting of another’s experience, I have nothing in common with these people. It’s not that I’m this unique special snowflake, I just have a perspective and system of beliefs that are drastically different and often opposed. It creates friction.

    Somewhere amidst this I discovered a video titled, “The Price of the Lie” on Youtube by ThinkingApe (aka Stardusk). We live in a society that requires us to lie. Human beings need to be lied to. We lie to ourselves and to others and demand everyone’s participation. Despite how we feel, despite what we are surrounded with, we are expected to be positive to leave a positive impression on others. As if we are to fake it well enough and we avoid having to look at the failing economy, the cronyism in our city council, the decay of our society and education, the failure of feminism, the failing family unit and subsequent dilution of masculinity, the obfuscation of femininity, etc., it’ll all just work out somehow. No, it’ll implode. I didn’t get to this juncture by blaming others or externalizing my failures. I looked within and realized that I can’t change others, I can share information, give them the tools and teach them how they function, but they have to make the choice to use them, they have to change themselves. We should be aware of as many conditions that affect us as we can, but we should only focus on the aspects that we can influence. I can only affect change upon myself and my personal environment, therefore the best method to encourage change in others is to be the change you want to see and hope it reflects outward and proliferates. Therein lies an important observation, that is our only hope, yet virtually seals our fate, because millions of people aren’t going to suddenly wake up one day motivated, energized and, you know, not morally and intellectually disengaged.

    “…People are actually not robots, we all have moments of weakness. The difference between a man going his own way and another man ( for example that has never given any thought to any of these ideas ) the difference is crucial, that difference is the fact that we understand when we have those moments of weakness, where it’s coming from, what it’s relationship is to us and the rest of the world, and these other men, they are fucking lost at sea. Luckily for them they are so practiced and rehearsed in the circus game of lies and pretense and faery, that they’ve been spending decades participating in, in some cases, tbatvthey just keep going on and on and on. They don’t bat an eyelash. Sometimes it does all come crashing down. Some very famous cases are divorce, loss of children, loss of offspring, the loss of financial assets. It all comes crashing down and you just can’t fake that smile anymore and all of a sudden all your friends are gone, nobody wants to hang out with you anymore and you’re all fucking alone and you’re cryin’ on the fucking cold, dusty wooden floor of your shitty flat, and yeah. That’s when it hits you, man who is not going his own way, and it will hit you eventually. The difference, once again, is that my friend and other men who experience moments of weakness recognize them for what they are and draw strength from them. See, we know that it’s all a big fucking lie, the rituals humans engage in. Human beings just can’t afford to be honest with each other. They’re afraid to offend, they’re afraid to exclude, they’re afraid of this of that and they all want to be part of it. Well, I don’t want to be part of it, because I recognized a long time ago that it compromised who I was and who I am and I refuse…”

    People choose their feel good fakery over what actually is. See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil, then does evil cease? Of course not. Drastic times call for drastic measures, seizing the Town Hall and demanding new representation would be a good start. Private business and public office do not mix. It ought to be illegal, one or the other.

    1. It is actually nice to see someone admit what I have been saying for years about people lying. That’s all what society is built on is who can lie more to cover up failings and deceive others. I can’t tell you that vast majority of people I come into contact simply do not have any morals or values and nobody is held accountable for anything they do anymore. Only are you punished when you decide to take a stand and do what is right and NOT follow the program. I won’t even begin on this one because I sincery could write a book on this.

    1. Josh,

      Thank you for your compliment. I realized as soon as I started writing my blog, that I would have to write anonymously if I was going to be able to write what I thought about Dickinson. Some of what I wrote, I was venting my personal anger about Dickinson, but other things that I wrote, I wanted to help people, and I wanted to change things in Dickinson for the better.

      I don’t want to let anyone know my name, so that people can’t easily harass and interfere with me. I don’t want people to try to harass my employer to pressure him into not letting me work, or harass clients/customers to pressure them into not letting me work. Inevitably, I will have written enough for people to figure out who I am, but I don’t want that to happen too soon because there are some more things that I want to write about, and I want to stay in Dickinson long enough to see that the mean, greedy, hostile people get what is coming to them.

      I am sorry that I can’t give out my name. Feel free to comment about what you think, I don’t edit comments, so people can say what they think.

  5. Well this blog certainly is something else. I moved to Dickinson in 2013, I am a female and have seen and experienced many things in Dickinson. In the peak of the boom yes many people were living in their cars and on the streets because Dickinson did not have the infrastructure to hold that many people. It took a few years but they have finally caught up. Housing prices were very inflated but have come down. I did noticed that many locals did have the mentality that every outsider was “oil field trash” and I had been called that myself from another female who was a local. Many locals did not like the influx of people and didn’t want to change much. Dickinson isn’t terrible, as a female in her late 20s I feel safe here, it has become my home, friends have turned into family, many many Dickinson people are very caring and friendly. You will find a bad egg in every community, it is how you choose to react to them.

    1. Yes, I made friends in Dickinson too, some local people and some out of state people.

      In the neighborhood where I lived in Dickinson for more than three years that was made up of long time local residents, I saw just about every neighbor needing help in some way, and every neighbor withhold help.

      The oldest neighbors needing physical help, and hardly ever getting any help. So many neighbors having equipment and expertise in one area, the next neighbor having equipment and expertise in a different area, the next neighbor in a different area, and no one helping each other, or cooperating with each other, to the point that some of them literally almost die or get killed each year from not getting help when they need it. I have never seen anything like this. It is almost like greed, pride, and arrogance that makes them not want to help anyone, but when there is really nothing to be greedy about any more and they honestly need help, they still have this pride and arrogance where they won’t ask for help either.

      I have seldom encountered friendliness in the local people. I have and do frequently encounter hatred, hostility, anger, envy, jealousy, greed, pride, arrogance, deceit, treachery, undermining, plotting, scheming, and slovenness.

    1. John,

      Where have you been? Everywhere I have lived, there has been theft of firearms and drugs from police evidence, police selling items from evidence, law enforcement selling narcotics, law enforcement seriously injuring and killing people, law enforcement having sex with prostitutes in order to make an arrest or just taking advantage of prostitutes, law enforcement having sex with minors, law enforcement allowing informants to commit crimes and looking the other way so long as they inform on other people. I don’t even think that you have ever been in law enforcement, because apparently you have no idea what goes on in law enforcement. When law enforcement officers begin breaking the law, it is not applying the law of interfering with a police investigation, putting them in handcuffs, not hurting them, and putting them in a police car for twenty minutes.

      A fifty year old police detective applies the law on interfering with a police investigation, and handcuffs a nurse and puts her in a police car for twenty minutes, and you act like this is a big deal? This is nothing, this is nothing in comparison to what goes on every day in the United States and the world. This is nothing in comparison to what an actual use of excessive force looks like, which results in a black eye, broken nose, bloodied lip, and bruising. This is so inconsequential, insignificant, and a non-event. If this is the worst thing that a police officer ever did in his career, he would be the most innocent and saintly police officer there ever was.

      Every day in the United States police pull drivers over for speeding, not using a turn signal, license plate light out, and they could not care less, they are making a stop in order to discover something else to charge somebody with, interfering with their right to travel freely. The police know it, the drivers know it. There is a great deal of profiling people which is illegal, the police know it, the drivers know it. In any city or town, the police do what they do, and it doesn’t involve hourly discussions of the Constitution.

      The police mostly have to deal with shit: disorderly drunks, drunk drivers, people out of their minds on drugs, assaults, stabbings, shootings, burglary, robbery, domestic violence. All the police want to do is handle the situation at hand as effectively as possible without themselves getting hurt, and without anybody else getting hurt. The police don’t show up and ponder the constitutionality of the situation, the legal merits, the latest court precedents, they just want to handle what they have in front of them. It is always the case, always, if someone is getting in their way and interfering with what they are doing, that person is likely to end up sitting in the back of a police car, everyone knows this, and this is the way it needs to be in order to keep people from interfering with police.

      If the people who write these complaints about police officers, think that they are going to get constitutional lawyers and human rights activists to become law enforcement officers, this is not going to work. The constitutional lawyers, human rights activists, and people who write comments are good at criticizing police who put there lives and careers at risk every day by responding immediately and making decisions immediately. You can’t always stand back and take your time thinking about the situtation, delay action, do nothing, and try to have a long discussion about the constitution or people’s rights.

This was a very, very important website for Bigfoot researchers as it includes verified actual newspaper articles going back over 150 years with Bigfoot sightings reports. I don’t know why the author abandoned his website, it looks like he tried to make it kind of obscure in the first place.

  9. Hello. I have been a Dickinson resident for most of my life. We are a 5 generation Dickinson family. I’ve read your blog for years, from the you wrote about the missing man who was buried alive on the contruction site. I find most of what you have written to be the truth, especially about the history of Dickinson and how the town has been run. I think you refer to it as the Dickinson Mafia. Another term I have heard over the years is “The Round Table”. I am astounded that a transplant could gather the information you have. To my knowledge you are the first person to actually have the nerve to put it in print. As I child I wasn’t aware of what went on because these powerful people were our peers. My father was a successful business man also, but treated his employees fairly and respectfully. it was only in my adult life that I learned and what has gone in this town. The wage setting, price fixing,(I acutally witnessed ) running industry out of town that could increase wages, or refusing to let businesses come into town. All thing that are supposed to be illegal. The public forum on our Super Walmart coming to town was on of the funniest broadcasts this town has ever had. What a dog and pony show. I’m so thankful for the Oil Industry, as that has taken some of the power away from the so called Dickinson Mafia. Before oil much of this town lived in an oppressed society.

    The reason for my reaching out it to ask you to do some research and write about the one murder we had in 2018, in which the files just happened to be mislaid. I am speaking of the murder of Alma Pluth. The press published it as “The Stange Case of the Murder of Alma Pluth.”
    Something is very wrong with what happened here. It ties in completely with what your last blogs have been about. The covering up of crimes, forgetting to report them, letting the guilty off, almost a fear of prosecuting.

    My new motto is, “if you want to get away with murder, move to Dickinson ND” A city where someone can murder their mother and be charged with Reckless Endangerment. A charge on the level of stealing $500.00. A town where no one seems to care about a 90 year old lifelong Dickinson resident being murdered.

    1. SB,
      Thank you for your comments. Normally, most Dickinson residents want to tell me off, and tell me that if I don’t like it, that I should leave. I usually have two motivations about what I write and how I write it, I am usually angry about something, and I usually want to hit back at Dickinson and the people in Dickinson even worse than what I got from them. However, I do have some goals about changing Dickinson for the better, and part of the way to do it is to expose some of the bad things, again and again.

      I had read somewhere about the elderly woman who died in a local nursing home, where the circumstances were suspicious, and no one followed up with the investigation. Without having looked this story up again, I vaguely remember that there was some evidence that a family member or nursing home staff may have hastened the death of an elderly woman, possibly so that a large inheritance could be received sooner rather than later. I will try to find out more about this.

      (I did go and read a Dickinson Press newspaper article about the death of 91 year old Alma Pluth. A few days after her death, one of her children went to the Dickinson Police Department and gave reasons why Alma Pluth’s death was suspicious. The Dickinson Police conducted an investigation, and they determined that Alma Pluth’s daughter, Renee Klein, had turned down the setting on her mother’s oxygen machine at St. Luke’s nursing home, causing her death. The Dickinson Police referred this case with the evidence to the Prosecutor with the Stark County State Attorney’s office, who began the prosecution of Renee Klein for “aggravated assault and reckless endangerment”. It was up to the Prosecutor to decide the charge, and he did not think that he could ever win the prosecution on the charge of “murder” because an autopsy had not been done to prove the cause of death, the body was prepared for burial so quickly, that an autopsy was not or could not be performed.}

      Right now in Dickinson, there is perhaps more crime than ever before. I have heard from a couple of people about many vehicle break-ins near the St. Alexius Hospital, fifteen to twenty car tires were cut Friday night east of 10th Ave East, vehicle tires were cut and vehicles were spray painted on the south side near Rosie’s gas station, thefts of property on my street and all over Dickinson.

      Since there are only five Patrol Officers on duty at night, plus one Corporal and one Sergeant, the City probably needs to ask the Highway Patrol to come in from the counties and interstate, and patrol here in Dickinson instead. Also the City of Dickinson needs to formally and officially request that all residents be on the look out for these crimes, almost like a “state of emergency”, it would help to institute a night time curfew.

      1. There was no reason an autopsy couldn’t have been done. They had the search warrants on the morning of the funeral. The burial was at the veterans cememtary in Mandan. The State Forensic examiner should have been brought in on this case. This women was not cremated. Autopsies can been done after embalming. If she would have been cremated it would be different. Why was an autopsy not ordered once they were granted the search warrants. Blood gases don’t register after death so an autopsy would have ruled out other possible causes of death.in order to strengthen the case for first degree murder. I feel that because this was a family member who committed this crime they didn’t know how to deal with it. So they cover it up. There was no large inheritance. I’ve known theses people my entire life. This women worked most of her life at DSU. Plus there are 3 or 4 other heirs.
        I think that because she was 90 years old and in a Nursing Home her life didn’t matter. The same mentality many in this area have about animals. They had pictures of her entering the room, the reading of the oxegan machine showing it had been turned way down, DNA, medical records showing that there was no reason for this women’s sudden death.
        I guess because the alleged murderer didn’t acutally put her hands around her throat and strangle her, it’s not murder here in Western North Dakota. Very sad and should be very alarming for all of us.

        You have some good arguments for why an autopsy should have been done. I was thinking that oxygen levels could not be determined at the time of death once a body had been embalmed, but I did not think that an autopsy could rule out many other causes of death, which would make the case for lack of oxygen being the cause of death a possibility.

        I don’t want to upset you even more, but I went to the North Dakota Court Repository website, where you can search court cases by county, last name, and first name, and her daughter Klein did not come up at all, no court case for her at all, which I think means that either she was never charged at all, or all of the charges were dropped, in order for there to be no court record whatsoever.

Cops are fucked in the head as well. They mess with people that shouldn’t be messed with to get some sort of rise out of them. I have told many cops to get fucked in this city from everything from having a sticker on the wrong place on my license plate to getting thrown in the back of a squad car for getting kicked out of a resturaunt for telling a mouthy bartender she had a fucking attitude. That was enough for 3 squads to come screaming into the parking lot, handcuff me and throw me in the back of a cruiser before they found out I didn’t do a damn thing wrong.

    1. Never Mind,
      The Dickinson Press newspaper article reported the facts of the investigation that was conducted by the Dickinson Police Department. After the Dickinson Police Department had completed their investigation, they concluded that the death was a homicide, and turned the case over to the Prosecutor. The Prosecutor explained to the Dickinson Press at the time of their newspaper article, that the case would be prosecuted as “aggravated assault and reckless endagerment”.

      Here is a quote from the Dickinson Press newspaper article:
      “According to Capt. David Wilkie, Dickinson Police Department, the investigation into the matter uncovered details that led police to classify this matter as a murder, and a subsequent report was forwarded to the Stark County State Attorney’s Office. That report concluded that Klein, daughter of Pluth, had intentionally turned down the oxygen level on her mother’s oxygen machine, causing her mother’s oxygen levels to drop and resulting in her death.”

      Here is another quote from the Dickinson Press newspaper article:
      “A criminal complaint was issued in October 2018 establishing the facts and legal reasons the state attorney’s office believed were sufficient to support a claim against Klein.

      A preliminary hearing in the case of the State of North Dakota vs. Renee Klein was held March 4 in the Southwest District Court before Judge Dann Greenwood.”

  13. You cannot presume innocence of one person and guilt of another. If your friend is/was found guilty in a court of law, we’d all assume his guilt
    even if he was wrongly convicted. Justice, right?

    SB, you need to take a good look at the state of your heart, at your motives. What if you or a loved one had all your words said about them? Your words speak volumes about you but you do not “know” this family.

    One day we will all have to account for words and actions.

      Yes, I can presume innocence of a friend of mine when I have not seen or heard any evidence that he committed a crime. On the other hand, if the Dickinson Police investigate someone’s death, and they state that there is video camera evidence that someone caused this death, and they determine that the death was a homicide, turn the case over to the Prosecutor who wants to proceed with criminal charges and a trial, I have no problem reporting what the Dickinson Police and Prosecutor have stated on record. I can’t find any record of this court case beyond a preliminary hearing.

      What was the Dickinson Press newspaper story that you told me to look for on August 31? I looked and did not find any news story out of the ordinary or related to this discussion.

    2. yes, actually, due to the nature of due process and cases being different wholecloth you can presume differences in innocence between cases. This is what judges and juries do every single day. The girl in the odegaard case was under 15, so OP was wrong about that one, but o e person being guilty does not make a different person guilty. Not a good way to disprove the limited intelligence of the Dicky locals.

There are shit people everywhere and wonderful people everywhere.

I hope you find some sort of happiness and realize that maybe it’s not Dickinson that you have a problem with, its you.

      I am beginning to catch on that many of the women in Dickinson, don’t want Dickinson to change.

      Keep in mind, that most attractive, personable women, would not even want to exit off the interstate to get fuel in Dickinson, they are not about to stay here or move here.

      So what I am concluding, from the fact that attractive women will not move here, and the attractive women who are born in Dickinson leave as soon as they are able, is that the ugly women who remain in Dickinson want there to be a shortage of women and no prostitution allowed, because it will force men have to accept ugly women.

      It is fine with me that you have threatened me, left your name, your IP address, some other details, and stated that you were working for Prepper Princess. Any kind of legal claim that Prepper Princess had against me was pretty weak to begin with. Now, you threatening me on her behalf, she is more likely to be in trouble with the Police if they ever contact me.

  18. Have it your way, idiot. I’ll be sending a couple of my legal cohorts to find out why you sent two men to visit my client. And don’t think for one second that’s a threat. As far as that IP address, good luck with that. You should double-check your work to be sure there are no reflections, signs, things like that. Somebody might legally publish information already in the public arena about you. I think that sums up what you claimed to have done to my client, wasn’t it?? 192.0.78.25 that look familiar? Keep your eye on The Dickinson Press for a couple of weeks, there’s going to be a photo of your favorite person in it.

    1. In reply to The_Last_Rebel,

      In two separate comments, you have stated several times that you are working for Prepper Princess, that you have taken an “assignment”, and that she is your “client”. Under the law, threats are sometimes treated as idle or a figure of speech, unless a step is made to carry out the threat, such as travelling to a person’s location. You have made both the threat, and the admission that you plan to carry out the threat. And, since you are acting on behalf of Prepper Princess, she is criminally liable for your actions.

      Depending on what you do with your Dickinson Press advertisement, Prepper Princess could very likely be liable for defamation if you publish untrue statements about me. This valid legal claim would be adjudicated in a North Dakota court.

      1. Since you are now claiming that you do no represent Prepper Princess, you can not bring any criminal case or civil lawsuit against me because you “Do Not Have Standing”. A friend, neighbor, or family member can not initiate a criminal case or a civil lawsuit on behalf of someone else.

        I see one angle that you may be trying to work, but the outcome in North Dakota of a Nuisance Lawsuit, is that the person filing the lawsuit who loses, has to pay All of the defendant’s legal costs and court costs. This would be you and Prepper Princess if you are able to bring a lawsuit as her representative. You are also probably going to be criminally prosecuted for acting as an attorney in North Dakota who is not licensed to practice law.

      2. Since you are now claiming that you do not represent Prepper Princess, you can not bring any criminal case or civil lawsuit against me, because “You Do Not Have Standing”.

A friend, neighbor, or family member can not seek to press criminal charges or a civil lawsuit on behalf of someone else.

        In North Dakota, in order to eliminate Nuisance Lawsuits, those lawsuits that are filed to harass someone else, to waste their time, to cause them to pay an attorney, if the person filing the lawsuit loses, the person filing the lawsuit is required to pay All of the defendant’s legal costs and court costs. That would be you and Prepper Princess, if you are able to bring a lawsuit as her representative.

      4. If you are talking about paying for something to be published in the Dickinson Press newspaper about me, they may or may not allow something defamatory to be published about me. I have never been accused or charged with any crime, and the Dickinson Press does not want to be liable for defamation by publishing false statements that are damaging to someone’s reputation. In any case, the Dickinson Press is not going to allow you to place any advertisement of this nature in their newspaper without obtaining the payer’s identifying information. You and Prepper Princess will be legally liable for damages.

        Since you are now claiming that you do not represent Prepper Princess, you can not initiate any legal action because “You Do Not Have Standing”. What this means is, you can not initiate any criminal or civil court action against me. The actual plaintiff in a criminal case or civil lawsuit, or their attorney, can seek to file criminal charges or a civil lawsuit against me, but someone who is not a party to the legal action can not.

        A friend, neighbor, or family member can not bring a criminal case or civil lawsuit on behalf of someone else. You Do Not Have Standing. So which is it, are you a representative of Prepper Princess, or are you not party able to bring any legal action against me?

      It is too late for you to try to say that you are not working on behalf of Prepper Princess for several reasons: 1) You first contacted me by leaving a comment on the Prepper Princess article demanding that I remove this blog. 2) The Only person who has ever asked me to remove a blog post is Prepper Princess. 3) The only person who has ever threatened me to remove a blog post is Prepper Princess. 4) Within a day of Prepper Princess threatening me and demanding that I remove this blog post, you contact me threatening me to remove this blog post. 5) Prepper Princess is the only person who ever complained that someone showed up at her house as a result of my blog post, and you wrote in your comment, that “you were going to send two legal cohorts to ask why I sent two men to your client’s house.”

      You are just trying to distance yourself from Prepper Princess so that she does not bear any legal and financial liability, but that is not going to work, it’s too late. If it comes to both you and Prepper Princess having to appear in a North Dakota court of law, you will not be able to get away with claiming that you do not know each other.

      I have lived in Dickinson for almost nine years. It is a small town with about 25,000 people. I have been writing articles about Dickinson and the people in Dickinson for the past five years. Everyone here has seen and read my blog posts. The controversial blog post articles have been shared. The people who were interested in knowing, already know who I am.

      The amount of people who have left a complaint about my blog post articles is less than 1%, it is 0.2%. Most people just don’t care.

      In Dickinson, because it is an oil field town with a migratory and transient population, and because it is not even at the Blue-Collar level of people, it’s just like being in prison. So anything that you think can happen in prison, happens here. It is a normal everyday thing to be prepared to be stabbed, shot, have your property stolen, etc. The only thing that you are doing, is reminding me to expect what I already expect.

      1. That’s funny. While seeking verification of your physical appearance I was in communication with one of the individuals (Jeremy) who assured me that he had no idea what you looked like because he had never met you and, as he put it, “I damn sure never worked with him. He’s probably never worked a day in his life.” And I pretty much concurred with that assessment. That good did come out of all this; I gained another acquaintance up here close to my second home. Not that I really wanted another but that’s alright, I’ll likely never come down long enough to meet him in person anyway. I haven’t heard anything from Jacob just yet, I think I should email him again. Word of advice, we’ve all got a past, some are worse than others, but we all have that in common .. if nothing else.
