Unintended Consequences Of The Dickinson Press Newspaper Going Online

A couple of days ago I wrote a blog article expressing some complaints about the Dickinson Press newspaper becoming an online newspaper.  One of my complaints was that the online newspaper keeps showing the same old articles day after day, with very few new articles.

My main complaint was that the owner of the Dickinson Press now wants everyone to pay in order to read their online newspaper.  I am not about to pay to read the Dickinson Press online, because in my opinion it is no longer good enough to pay for, and I don’t want to pay for anything on the internet.

This past week, I was surprised to see that my blog website’s statistics show a doubling of views.  I was trying to figure out why, I didn’t think that any of my articles were better than what I usually write.  Then, I thought that maybe because people are stuck at home due to the coronavirus, they are bored and spending more time on the internet.

What has happened, is that people are staying home and using the internet more, and in trying to find things to read about news and current events in Dickinson, like me, the Dickinson Press newspaper online has blocked Dickinson residents from reading any more newspaper articles until they sign up for a paid subscription.

Because my blog website is one of the only other internet sites besides the Dickinson Press that writes stories about Dickinson daily, more and more people in Dickinson are reading my articles because they are free, and because they are blocked from reading Dickinson Press newspaper articles without a paid subscription.

The owners, managers, editors, reporters, and advertising people at the Dickinson Press newspaper would never intentionally try to send more and more viewers to my website, but that is what they have done.

There is something that I have not mentioned before regarding my blog website.  Business owners, politicians, the Chamber of Commerce, Catholics, the Catholic Church, and associations in Dickinson, several years ago they began trying to bury my website.

I recollect that back in 2015 or 2016, either the Chamber of Commerce, some association, or business organization in Dickinson was hosting a several day seminar about online media optimization.  How to make your business website rise to the top of the internet search results.

It was not long after one of these travelling internet optimization salesmen came to Dickinson, that I saw a deliberate attempt to bury my blog website articles, specifically the ones about the Catholic Church.

People in Dickinson began paying consultants to get my website articles to disappear.  I found out at least four separate ways that this was being done, which I am not about to tell these steps 1, 2, 3, and 4.

I will say that one of the things that a consultant explained to the Dickinson Chamber of Commerce, is that there are many internet marketing companies that have a generic template, that they use to fill in the blanks about a city or town, and can be used to pose as an actual knowledgeable authority or news source for the city or town.

For instance, beginning in about 2016 and 2017, niche.com, bestplaces.net, areavibes.com, city-data.com, livability.com, and homesnacks.net began using all of my website “tags” and internet search terms related to Dickinson, in order to get their website ahead of mine on the internet search results.

To be clear about this, when I first started my blog website “Living In Dickinson, North Dakota”, for a couple of years my blog website would appear at the top of the first page of Google search results on any day.  For a couple of years, there were no niche.com, bestplaces.net, areavibes.com, livability.com, or homesnacks.net internet articles about Dickinson.

It wasn’t until an internet search optimization consultant was asked for help, that it was pointed out that there are many internet marketing companies that can be hired to pose as a legitimate news source providing favorable information about a city or town, to counteract negative news stories and reports about a city or town.

If you have ever read one of these internet marketing websites that pretend to have accurate information about a city or town, you will see that a generic template is used, and only generic, general, non-specific, favorable statements are made, such as:  “good schools”, “low crime”, “many parks”, “opportunities for recreation”, “good employment”, “friendly people”, whether these statements are true or not.  The people who wrote this information have never even been to Dickinson.

Because the Dickinson Press newspaper online has blocked viewers who do not have a paid subscription from reading their articles, and internet users in Dickinson have begun to look elsewhere for news stories about Dickinson, they have now found out that all of the sites like bestplaces.net, areavibes.com, city-data.com, livability.com, and homesnacks.net are fake, bullshit sites, written by people who have never even been to Dickinson.

I now have a renewed feeling of enthusiasm and purpose in writing blog website articles.  Because of the sudden unexpected crisis caused by the coronavirus and OPEC flooding the market with cheap oil, people believe that they were misled, lied to, not told the truth, kept in the dark, and were used.  They are ready to hear and take a look at what actually might be going on, instead of listening to lies and bullshit from places like the Chamber of Commerce and business press releases given to the newspapers that are reported as facts.

Everyone In Dickinson Needs To Get Ready For A Huge Amount Of Theft

For those of you who have never read my blog articles before, I have experienced a great deal of theft since moving to downtown Dickinson in the Spring of 2017.  In my almost 51 years of being alive, I had more theft in Dickinson during these past three years, than in the entirety of my previous 48 years, living in eight different states.

In 2017 I had my truck stolen, with $2,500 worth of tools, equipment, and valuables in it.  In 2018 I had a mountain bike stolen off the back of a different vehicle, by two people who used a rotary Dremel tool to cut through the cable lock, and a short time later someone cut through the cable lock on a different bicycle of mine parked in the apartment building bicycle rack.

In 2019 and 2020, one of my neighbors had a locked bicycle stolen on two different occasions, another neighbor had his vehicle luggage carrier stolen, one neighbor had his wallet with a week’s pay inside of it stolen from his vehicle parked in his driveway, an apartment neighbor had a revolver stolen from behind the backseat of his vehicle in the parking lot, another apartment neighbor had his stereo and speakers stolen from his vehicle in the parking lot.  There were more thefts than this, it’s hard to remember them all, and many attempted thefts.

In 2018, I installed two security cameras outside of my apartment that record continuously.  When I am home, I can usually see the video monitor that shows what is happening outside in the parking lot and out on the street beside my apartment building.  Do these cameras record these thefts and attempted thefts, and do I give the video to the Police?  Yes.

From watching the video monitor when I am home, from watching the video recordings of the thefts and attempted thefts, and being outside my apartment building, I can tell you what is happening and what to look for.

During the afternoon and evening, males between the ages of 17 to 30 walk the streets like they are trying to get somewhere, but if you watch them, watch what they are doing, and where they are going, you will see that the route that they are taking is not necessary or not getting them anywhere the quickest or most direct way.  Nor are they going to or coming from a place of employment, store, or business.

When I am walking, I don’t walk as close as possible to parked vehicles, within inches, when the roadway and sidewalk is 40 feet wide, but I am not checking to see which vehicles have the door lock buttons pressed down, and what items are inside of parked vehicles.  I also don’t walk holding my phone at chest height, video recording what is inside of parked vehicles on the street, but I am not planning on coming back late at night to steal things.

A few of my neighbors and myself, we have followed the people who have walked beside our vehicles recording what is inside of them, and we have called the Police.  One time the Police did catch and arrest one of these people a short time later, for fleeing, eluding, resisting arrest, and other charges.  Another time, by the time the Police arrived we couldn’t find the person, but a short while later another apartment resident caught this person in the fenced-off, utility corridor behind the apartment building, questioned them, and told them that they had to leave.

The thieving people are usually males between the ages of 17 to 30.  They are usually drug addicts and drug users.  They are unemployed, do not have steady employment, or do not have good employment.  They live in low-rent apartment buildings, subdivided houses made into low-rent apartments, with their mom, or with their grandmother.

If they lived with their father or grandfather, these older males would say, “Oh no, you’re not going out at 1:00 a.m. to steal things in this neighborhood and bringing it back here.”  But women, who knows, maybe they are either dumb or they play dumb, their little angel who has been arrested multiple times for theft and possession of drugs, he’s just going to visit his friends at 1:00 a.m., he’s not doing anything wrong.

Because the Police can’t be everywhere at once, and it is technically not illegal for unemployed, drug-addict, criminal record males to be walking the streets between midnight and 3:00 a.m., the Police have a hard time preventing or catching these thieves.  And because mothers and grandmothers are either dumb or are playing dumb about the five bicycles, five car stereos, five laptop computers, and five mobile phones stashed in their garage or basement by their unemployed, drug addict son, the thieving continues.

In the past two days, I was out working on my vehicles during the afternoon and evening, and never ever before have I seen so many young males between the ages of 17 to 30 wearing hoodies, walking down the streets and sidewalks getting as close as they can to parked vehicles, and looking in parked vehicles.  They were like moths or insects buzzing around and bumping into a porch light as far as cars parked out on the street.

This neighborhood that I live in is a bad neighborhood.  It is mostly a blue-collar, lower-middle-class, poor, drug addict neighborhood.  It’s the very low rent apartments, high number of subdivided homes made into low-rent apartments, poor single mothers and poor single grandmothers, that provide the habitat for these unemployed, drug addict, criminal record, thieving young males.

What can you do?  Whenever you see a male between the ages of 17 to 30 walking down the street or riding a little BMX bicycle down the street in Dickinson, don’t try to think that they are going to or from work, going to the store, or going to visit a friend.  They don’t have a job, they don’t have any money, and if they are going to visit someone’s house it is drug related.  Watch what they do, watch where they are going, try to figure out where they are going or where they are coming from.  They are out looking for anything that they can steal.

Make sure that every window and every door in your house or apartment is closed and locked.  Before you go anywhere, and before you go to bed at night, make sure that all ground-floor doors and windows are closed and locked, especially in the basement, and the garage.

Install flood lights and motion activated lights to illuminate your front yard, back yard, and vehicle parking areas.  Try to reduce the amount of possible concealment around your house, such as overgrown hedges, bushes, and shrubs.  Do not leave anything outside during the day or night that would attract thieves, such as bicycles, lawn mowers, snow blowers, air compressors, chain saws, welders, motorcycles, fishing poles, golf clubs, ice chests, etc.

Apartment building owners and home owners need to install fencing not just to keep people who don’t belong from accessing their property, but to block off the backyard cut-throughs that neighborhood children create, but end up getting used by vagrants and thieves at 1:00 a.m.

Most importantly, start watching what passersby are doing in your neighborhood, and ask yourself what are they doing, do they belong here, do they have a reason for being here, do they look like they are actually trying to get somewhere, or do they seem to be here for some other purpose?  If you see someone acting suspicious, let your neighbors know, so that they can watch too, put away their belongings, lock their vehicle doors, and start being more careful about locking up their house.

These young adults that you see walking around the streets in Dickinson, do not give them the benefit of the doubt anymore.  You don’t have to stop and question them, just recognize that they are a threat, because so many people in Dickinson are drug addict thieves.

Problems With The Dickinson Press Newspaper Online

About two months ago, the owner of the local daily newspaper the Dickinson Press announced that they would no longer be publishing a printed newspaper.  This was supposed to save money, follow the trend of other newspapers, and allow the newspaper to be updated throughout the day.

I liked looking at a printed newspaper or watching news on television from time to time, but I personally got most of my daily local and national news from the internet.  I enjoyed reading Dickinson Press newspaper articles online, especially articles that were days or weeks old, that I never would have seen if these articles were published one time only in a printed newspaper.

Over the past two months, a small complaint that I have, which I saw right away was going to be the case, is that the Dickinson Press newspaper online is not really a full, new, newspaper each day.  Every day now, it seems like 60% of the newspaper content is old, existing articles that have already appeared over and over again many times.

It appears that not only did the owners of the Dickinson Press newspaper seek to cut costs by not printing the newspaper on paper anymore, but they have also cut back on the reporting staff and the amount of articles.  In my opinion, the owners of the Dickinson Press have cheapened the newspaper and reduced the quality by having fewer new articles each day.

My bigger complaint is that the Dickinson Press owners are now trying to force everyone to pay to read the Dickinson Press online.  I am not going to pay for the Dickinson Press online for several reasons.

In a way, the internet is like broadcast radio and television used to be.  You used to listen to the radio and watch television for free.  On the internet, you can look up, read, watch, and listen to most things for free.  Just some examples, on the internet you can read newspaper articles, magazine articles, look up facts on Wikipedia, use Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube for free.

The reason why people, organizations, and businesses uploaded content, information, news, articles, music, and videos to the internet, was because it was desirable, advantageous, or profitable to get this content in front of potentially billions of users.  Advertising revenue was part of it.

Now that the owners of the Dickinson Press are trying to force people to pay to read Dickinson Press newspaper articles online, to me, this suggests two things:  One, the owners of the Dickinson Press want to receive money from both advertisers and viewers;  Two, the Dickinson Press newspaper online content is not drawing enough viewers to have sufficient advertising revenue to be profitable.

At this point, being asked to pay to read the Dickinson Press newspaper online, is like being asked to pay to watch the evening news from the local television stations in Bismarck or Fargo.  These local television stations can report local news without having to charge viewers.

Now that the Dickinson Press newspaper is going to be an online newspaper, I feel like they are the same as a television or radio station.  If television and radio stations can produce news and entertainment programming and generate enough revenue through advertising, why can’t the Dickinson Press?

I think that western North Dakota needs its own medium-sized, locally owned, printed paper newspaper.  If this newspaper focused on news from Bowman, Hettinger, New England, Medora, Belfield, Dickinson, Taylor, Killdeer, and Watford City, there would be enough news, happenings, and events to make it an interesting newspaper, so that it would have a large enough circulation and advertising revenue.

The residents in western North Dakota somewhat know each other and are involved in the same businesses, activities, events, politics, and issues.  There would be an interest in reading wedding announcements, obituaries, business openings, business promotions, farming news, school news, school sporting events, rodeos, city commission meetings, police blotter, crime & court, local elections, accidents, disputes, events, hunting, outdoor activities, entertainment, interesting stories, and interesting people, that are not currently being covered by the Dickinson Press because they are of no interest to the people in Fargo, Grand Forks, and Bismarck on the eastern side of North Dakota.

North Dakota Game & Fish Partner With DNR To Purchase Sex Dolls To Collect Bigfoot DNA

The North Dakota Game & Fish Department is partnering with the Department Of Natural Resources to purchase four sex dolls, sometimes referred to as “Waifus”, in order to collect and test for possible Bigfoot DNA.

The longest serving and most experienced Game & Fish Officers have been involved in meetings to select four separate locations in and around western North Dakota to place these life-size dolls, based on a number of factors, such as reported sightings, evidence, and favorable habitat conditions.

A spokesperson states:

“These sex dolls are very realistic and life-like in every way.  We looked at many, it was hard to make a decision because they were all very attractive.   In the end we went with three Caucasian women, and one Asian woman.  Each of them have long hair, two blond, one with brown hair, and the Asian has long beautiful black hair, we joked, ‘She love you long time’.”

“Three of these dolls have C-cup bust size, and one of the two blonds has D-cup bust size.  A couple of the dolls come with eye-glasses, so you can put them on to make them appear more intelligent.  They each come with one set of clothing, we selected elastic waistband shorts, and a Bikini top, because both of these are easy to take off or pull down.”

“We think that these dolls that we have chosen, will provide the best bang for the buck.  We will be installing hidden trail cameras at each doll location, and hope to capture first-of-its-kind Bigfoot video, which should be very interesting.”

Scientists at Game & Fish and the DNR hope to obtain DNA samples once these dolls are placed in the field.  They will use this DNA to determine if there are Bigfoot in western North Dakota, what DNA they share with humans, and are they possibly related to the descendants of the captured Russian Yeti “Zana”, whose descendants immigrated and settled in Dickinson.

Everyone In Dickinson Needs To Start Reading Google News Stories

For the past eight years I have struggled to understand the mechanisms at work which cause things to happen in Dickinson, North Dakota.  It has been difficult for me to read what is reported in the Dickinson Press newspaper, and try to figure out the origin of these events well enough to be able to have an overall understanding of what is happening, and why.  My goal was to know what was going to happen, ahead of time.

I mentioned a month or two ago that I realized that I had relied too much on the Dickinson Press newspaper for my information.  There was so much more being reported elsewhere that the people in Dickinson really needed to know.  They could have been much better prepared for what was to come.

For instance, it was never pointed out to me by the Dickinson Press that one of the largest locally operating oil companies, Whiting Petroleum, had a stock price decline from $370/share in 2014 to $1.37/share recently in 2020.  This was something that we all needed to know in Dickinson.  Whiting Petroleum is one of the biggest employers in Dickinson, and many people in Dickinson receive oil revenue payments from Whiting Petroleum oil wells located on their property.

This morning I read on Google News Stories, that Whiting Petroleum has just declared bankruptcy, and their stock price went down to 37 cents/share:

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-04-01/whiting-petroleum-files-for-bankruptcy-amid-oil-price-collapse

https://www.barrons.com/articles/whiting-petroleum-files-for-chapter-11-bankruptcy-51585753208

Google, especially on people’s mobile phones, provides the top five or six news stories of the moment, that are most relevant to where you are located.  For me, a dozen times per day, when I look at Google on my mobile phone, they have oil industry news stories from the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Washington Post, Bloomberg, and many other oil industry journals.

Every day in this past month of March 2020, I have been reading in-depth expert analysis of international events, OPEC, Texas oil associations, Canadian oil industry and transport, U.S. legislation, Canadian legislation, oil company stock market price trends, oil company financial statements and loan debt, from the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Bloomberg, etcetera.  All of their indicators and predictions have foretold what eventually happened a few days or a few weeks later.

These very large news agencies have the budgets to allow highly intelligent journalists/investigators/analysts to devote all of their time to focusing solely on the energy industry, stock market trends, government legislation, and so forth.

Sometimes this is not easy reading, it is too complicated or incorrectly supposes some expertise on the part of the reader.  Fortunately, there are usually several different news agencies or industry journals that cover the exact same topic on the same day.

For at least two months, oil industry analysts have been pointing out that Whiting Petroleum had a huge loan debt, something like $2.2 billion, that was way out of proportion to both the revenue and the net worth of Whiting.  Much of this debt was becoming due in 2020, this was one of the main reasons why the stock price of Whiting dropped to $1.37 per share in March, that plus the price of oil dropping to $20 per barrel, and the coronavirus shut down of the economy.

The oil industry analysts have been going through the financial statements of all of the large and small oil companies.  It turns out, that nearly all of the oil companies involved in fracking over the last ten years, have spent and borrowed way more money than they have earned.  All of the oil companies involved in fracking had the belief that as long as they kept drilling new wells, eventually they would have a large enough revenue stream to pay off all of their debt, but that never actually happened for any of these companies, they all made this same mistake.

The price of oil dropping to $20 per barrel, the oversupply of oil that exists, the coronavirus shutting down the economy, has made everyone in the oil industry stop and look at what they are doing.  It is now universally realized, that the oil companies can’t continue doing what they have been doing.  Because of this, the stock price of two of the largest oil companies operating in this area, Continental Resources and Marathon Oil, have also dropped greatly.

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/big-shale-borrowers-fast-track-100000698.html

What only a few journalists/investigators/analysts are writing about, is the oil company disaster that is coming if and when the Democrats ever win the Presidency, and a majority in the House or Senate.  The Democrats have said that they want to ban fracking, which is the only way to retrieve North Dakota oil.  Additionally, the Democrats may even initiate gigantic lawsuits seeking damages and reparations for supposed environmental damage caused by the fracking oil companies such as Continental Resources, Marathon Oil, Whiting Petroleum, and many others. How could all of these oil companies not go bankrupt with a ban on fracking and these lawsuits?

The future of Dickinson, North Dakota is being told by these daily Google News Stories.  The people here don’t have to be in the dark about what is going to happen.

Female Police Officer Accidentally Shoots Suspect’s Mother

Below I am going to share a YouTube video that shows a female South Carolina Police Officer accidentally shooting the suspect’s mother during an attempted arrest.

I am showing this video, because it is kind of funny, but also to give people some things to think about.

In my opinion, the female Police Officer shown in this video, she acted within the bounds of what Police Officers are supposed to do.  The Police Department that she worked for, after conducting an investigation, determined that she was not guilty of any misconduct, and she did not receive any disciplinary action.

I agree with her Police Department deciding in her favor.  Who would want to be a Police Officer, or perform any job for that matter, if under difficult, sudden, unknown, dangerous circumstances, requiring immediate action, everyone who wasn’t there was going to disagree and penalize you for what you did.

I am not saying that Police Departments should always stand behind Police Officers when they shoot someone, I am pointing out that if you expect Police Officers to do their job, which is often dangerous and requires immediate action, there are going to be some accidents and accidental shootings.

Here is my analysis after watching this video below several times:

When the female Police Officer arrives at this residence and she begins to question “Shawn” about a shoplifting incident, he appears to be young, physically larger, and likely physically stronger than this Police Officer.

She could have called for backup, but Police Officers are expected to handle many of their duties on their own.  It is probably not acceptable for Police Officers to call for backup every time that they respond to a call for service.

When this Police Officer began reading Shawn his Miranda warning, she was intending to make an arrest, although she may not have been clear to him that he was being arrested and was not free to leave.  When Shawn began walking away, she had the legal authority to detain him and arrest him.

This Police Officer could have used more physical force to detain Shawn when he tried to leave, but it was her choice.  She may have been correct in only grabbing Shawn by his arm, if she had used all the physical force that she had, it might have instantly resulted in Shawn using all his physical force to attack her.

Just because Shawn was able to escape this Police Officer while she was trying to arrest him at his front door, and he made it into his own house, this does not mean that the arrest is over, it only means that he has resisted arrest, the Police Officer has the legal authority to continue to try to make the arrest.

The long period of arguing back and forth between this Police Officer and Shawn inside the house, though this may look unprofessional, this Police Officer was able to keep Shawn in sight, call for backup, keep him there, and prevented the situation from escalating.

Though this female Police Officer might have appeared weak at this point, if a lone male Police Officer had pursued Shawn up the stairs by himself in this same situation, this could have resulted in a struggle where the Police Officer or Shawn were severely injured or killed.

Perhaps the only mistake that this female Police Officer made, was becoming impatient for backup to arrive, and going ahead trying to continue this physical arrest by herself.  When it got to the point that it appeared that Shawn was going to physically overwhelm this Police Officer and beat her down, she hesitated to shoot him, he got too close, and she could only get one frantic poorly aimed shot at him as he rushed her.

You will probably have to watch the end of this scene several times to figure out what happened.

Even though her one shot hit Shawn’s mother, I don’t think that this female Police Officer should quit or be fired.  I think that she can learn from this experience.

Shawn’s mother was accidentally shot during the mayhem, she survived but had many surgeries.  It doesn’t even look like Shawn’s mother sued anyone or complained, it’s like she felt sorry for the female Police Officer.

Police Almost Called On Me At Runnings In Dickinson, North Dakota

On March 12, I went to the Runnings Farm & Fleet store in Dickinson, North Dakota to try to buy an extra ammunition magazine for a .32 Beretta pistol.  This store did not have this particular ammunition magazine, but the gun counter person offered to order one for me, if I paid for it now.

This ammo magazine price was about $25.  I walked over to the sporting goods department cashier with the gun counter person, and I used my debit card to pay for this ammo magazine order.  Normally, I would have just shoved this receipt in my pants pocket, but this time, I put the receipt inside of my wallet.

Today, March 18, the Runnings Farm & Fleet gun counter person who I had dealt with on March 12 regarding the ammo magazine, he called me at about 3 p.m. to tell me that it had arrived at the store today.  I asked him how late was he going to be working, and he said 5 p.m., but any person at the gun counter could help me.

I really didn’t feel like driving to Runnings any time soon, but I felt that I should go get my magazine, maybe buy some more .32 ammo, maybe look at other things.

I got to Runnings at about 5 p.m.  The first thing that I did was try to find some .32 ammo, because I had heard that stores were selling out of ammo recently.  Some of the ammo shelves were nearly empty, and some of the other shoppers were commenting on how much ammo was sold out.  I had a hard time finding the .32 ammo, because there were only three small boxes remaining on the shelf.  I picked up one box.

I saw the older man who I had dealt with on March 12, who I had talked to on the phone earlier today at 3 p.m., but he was busy with another customer.  There was a younger man working at the gun counter, and I explained to him that I had placed an order a week ago, that I had gotten a call a couple of hours ago telling me my order was here, and I gave him my name.

I waited a few minutes for the younger man to walk to the store room, and come back.  He came back and he handed me my ammo magazine package, and he asked me if this was it.  I looked at this package from Beretta, I read what gun models this magazine was for, and it appeared to be the correct one.

I was ready to pay for my box of .32 ammo at the sporting goods counter and leave.  But like an abnormal person, I stopped to read the store inventory ticket attached to this Beretta magazine package, and the handwriting appeared to say, “Not Paid”.  I showed this inventory ticket to the younger gun counter person, and he said, that’s what it says.

Not only did this younger gun counter person believe that this Beretta ammo magazine was not yet paid for, when I showed him my Runnings Farm & Fleet cash register receipt from March 12, he was quick to point out, “But this inventory ticket says March 18.”  He believed that the receipt that I removed from my wallet to show him, was not proof that I had already paid for this ammo magazine, because the dates were different.

I was instantly very angry, because I knew what would have happened if I had left the store with this ammo magazine like I planned to do.  This younger gun counter person would have been absolutely certain in his mind, that I had just walked out of this store without paying for this ammo magazine, and he would have called the Police.

The thought of what would have happened, bothers me a great deal.  Getting the Police called on me for shoplifting, would have cost me my job almost immediately.  It wouldn’t matter if the charges were later dropped by Runnings or the City Prosecutor, my employer would have been inclined to let me go immediately for a number of reasons, replace me, and that would be the end of my employment.  I would probably not even be eligible to receive unemployment compensation, because I would have been fired “for cause”, as far as my employer was concerned.

Every year, myself and my co-workers have to complete an affidavit, answering questions, and disclosing any criminal charge whatsoever that might appear on a nation-wide FBI fingerprint and records check.  I know from past experience, that failure to disclose a charge, even a dismissed charge or expunged charge, is considered to be a falsification of the affidavit.  I have previously seen six of my co-workers be denied their background clearance, for very minor things, even dismissed charges or expunged charges, and they were let go from the employer that I currently work for.

So besides the embarrassment, frustration, and hassle of trying to explain my side of the story to the Police, who would know exactly who I was and where to find me because of my personal information on the Beretta ammo magazine order, I would have likely lost my job.

I was so angry about this, that I called the Runnings Farm & Fleet store manager.  I told the store manager that the older gun counter guy who placed the ammo magazine order was nice and helpful, and the younger gun counter person was also nice acting, but the inventory ticket said “Not Paid”, I had already paid for this ammo magazine, and I was going to leave the store with it, if I had not read the store inventory ticket.  The younger gun counter guy would have believed that I left the store without paying.

This would not have been just a misunderstanding, if the Police would have been called on me for shoplifting, I would have lost my job immediately.  My employer would not be inclined to wait to see whether I was convicted or not, that is not how it would be handled.  I asked the store manager if he understand my situation, if he as a store manager were arrested for shoplifting, did he understand that his employer might just go ahead and fire him immediately without waiting to see whether he was convicted or not.

The Beautiful Chippewa Women Of Turtle Mountain

I have lived in Dickinson, North Dakota for about seven years now.  The whole time that I have been here, I have been complaining about the shortage of women, and the scarcity of attractive women.  The ratio of men to women in Dickinson is about 3:1.

When I first came to Dickinson in 2011 to work in the oil field, I didn’t see any women around town when I got off work in the evening.  So, I created a user profile on about four different online dating websites, such as PlentyOfFish and Mingle.  On these dating websites, in all of western North Dakota, there were just a couple dozen women, and most of these women were not attractive.

Over the past seven years of living in Dickinson, I have learned some things.  If there are ever any attractive girls that are born in Dickinson, by the time they reach their teen years, they decide that they want to leave Dickinson as soon as they graduate from high school.  Attractive women from other parts of the U.S., they won’t come to Dickinson because they recognize that there is nothing desirable to them here, it’s just mostly cold, barren, and ugly here.

I realized several years ago, that there is so little to do in Dickinson, it’s so bleak here, there are no women, and the Police are constantly trying to stop me and arrest me for something, that living here is like being in prison.  But since I go to work, to be more accurate, it’s like a prison work camp.

I have had plenty of time to think about all the mistakes that I have made in my life to cause me to be here.  I feel sorry and regretful that the very last young years of my life, where I might have had friends, relationships, maybe even met a woman to marry, these years have just been wasted, the same as if I had been incarcerated in a prison.

Right now, just writing about this, it makes me enraged at the fat, ugly, hideous, deformed, ham-fisted, no-neck, cankle-calf, sneering, scowling, battle-axe women who inhabit Dickinson.  This is the result of these Germans and Ukrainians breeding ugly women like they just don’t care, when they should have stopped this shit a long time ago.

The only thing that I have to do in Dickinson, is look at things on the internet, like YouTube, movies, news articles, EscortOfItaly.com, and Facebook.  On Facebook, I like to use the feature “Find Friends” or “People You May Know”, because this sometimes shows a few attractive women in North Dakota.

Today when I used Facebook to “Find Friends”, Facebook showed me a whole list of Native American women from the Belcourt area of North Dakota.  At first, when I was skipping around looking at the different profiles of women on Facebook this evening, I didn’t realize that all of these Native American women from the Belcourt, Dunseith, Rolla area, were from the Chippewa tribe of the Turtle Mountains.

There was one young Native American woman named Kishia, who got my attention because of her main Facebook profile photograph.  I thought that she was going to have a slew of slutty photographs of herself, but she didn’t.  I looked at about thirty of her photographs, and I read her daily posts and comments.  Contrary to what I had thought she was going to be like, she was actually fairly modest in her photographs of herself, and she was consistently decent with her comments.

I knew just a little about the Turtle Mountain Reservation from having worked with about seven members of this tribe in the past.  Like many reservations, the inhabitants are mostly poor, because there is not a lot of opportunity for employment on the reservation.

Kishia appeared to be just a couple of years out of high school, and living on her own.  Even though a few of her photographs caused me to believe that she was going to be an out-of-control party girl, she was not.  I noticed that she didn’t appear to have any tattoos, and that she wasn’t talking about getting high, getting wasted, getting drunk, using drugs, or being promiscuous.  As I wrote earlier, her photographs were fairly modest, and her comments were decent.  I then thought that she must have a strong underlying sense of self-respect, which most women do not have anymore.

What I had never known or thought about before, was that these Turtle Mountain Chippewa women were all half French.  Back in the 1800s, the French trappers and traders had married women from this Chippewas tribe.  Their last names became DeCoteau, Charboneau, Belgarde, Charette, Azure, Laverdure, Lafontaine, Delorme, Larocque, LaVallie, Malaterre, Dubois, Bercier, Gladue, Trottier, Allard, Faine, Laducer, Pelletier.

At first I was stunned and overwhelmed with a feeling of bewilderment that there was a whole tribe of French-Indian girls not far away, that I had known nothing about.  Half my ancestors were French, Huguenots who came to the Carolinas in the 1700s.  French people have a whole different way of behaving and looking at things, they can be very moderate, calm, easy going, playful, and civilized.  It’s not just a cultural difference, there must be some genetic component to this, because not only is a French physical appearance inherited, so is the disposition.

I couldn’t believe this.  All of these Chippewa women with the French last names, they looked French, and they had a calm, easy going, soft, inviting, civilized manner to them.  Meanwhile, for the past seven years, I have been stuck in the midst of these mean, nasty, scowling Germans and Ukrainians.

How far is Belcourt from Dickinson, I wondered.  I looked it up, it’s 278 miles, a 4-1/2 hour drive, it’s all the way over northeast of Minot, near the Canadian border.  I was sorry to find out that Turtle Mountain was such a long drive from me, not only do they have many beautiful women, they also have some Bigfoot living there.

I spent four hours researching the Turtle Mountains, Belcourt, the Chippewa tribe, and looking at the Facebook profiles of about fifty Turtle Mountain Chippewa women.  These women shared some common physical characteristics, they were petite, not very tall, with long straight dark or brown hair, dark color eyes, pale smooth complexions, soft feminine physiques, very healthy white teeth, overall very healthy appearance, and not weathered looking even though they live in a very cold, windy climate.

Unlike most other women anywhere else, these Chippewa women seemed to have more composure, calm, ease, and an appearance of being at peace with themselves and their surroundings.  Most other women anywhere else, seem to be at war with everything, at war with themselves, each other, men, their environment, the World, and they constantly bare the signs of the stress and strain on their faces.

Location Of The Prepper Princess

Six months ago when I was watching YouTube videos, YouTube began showing in my list of recommended videos, a channel called “Prepper Princess”.  The “Prepper Princess” channel was owned by a woman in California, who was about 38 years old.  She had a little over 100K subscribers to her channel.

In her videos, Prepper Princess usually talked about emergency preparedness supplies, food storage, emergency equipment, preparing for emergencies, things to be aware of, and things to think about regarding different types of disasters.

Another topic that Prepper Princess discussed in her videos was how to live cheaply, how to not spend money, how to save money, and examples of things that she did in her own personal life to save money.

Prepper Princess also made videos where she talked about what was going on in her personal life, her current job, jobs that she had had in the past, her childhood, some of her experiences as an adult, her current relationship, her personal finances, and the dilemma with the house she was living in and California.

When Prepper Princess was talking about food storage, emergency supplies, generators, and solar panels, I was not very interested.  One of the reasons for my lack of interest, was that in my opinion, if you don’t live on a large defensible property, your biggest problem in a prolonged emergency will be preventing people from stealing all of your supplies, which is hard to do if you live in an apartment, or you have to leave your home to go somewhere.

When Prepper Princess showed some of the things that she did in her personal life to save money or not spend money, sometimes I cringed.  She took walks looking for aluminum cans to collect, which led her beside the railroad tracks, and into the woods where the homeless people camped.  She would look through what the homeless people had left behind, clothing, utensils, hygiene products, and she would take some of these items home to use.

In Prepper Princess’s personal life, I was sorry to hear what she talked about.  She and her younger brother were raised by a single mother.  Prepper Princess never once mentioned her father, or any male figure being in her life at all.  She and her brother had very little growing up, very few clothes, very few toys, hardly anything for Christmas or birthdays, very little food in the house, going hungry, not being able to ever invite friends over for parties or cookouts.

Growing up, sometimes they had a rent paying boarder in their single family home for extra income.  Prepper Princess did not go to college after high school, she went to work at low paying jobs, sometimes working seven days a week.  Up until she was in her early thirties, she never made more than $14 per hour, which is very low pay for California.

When Prepper Princess was about 30 years old, her mother died, and she left the family home to Prepper Princess and her brother.  Prepper Princess said that she had to pay off about $40,000 remaining on the home mortgage.

Because of the ever increasing price of real estate in California, by 2019 the home that Prepper Princess had inherited with her brother, where Prepper Princess was living, the home became worth about $700K.  With the property taxes on the home being about $5,000 per year, California having a high State Income Tax, and other high costs and problems in California, Prepper Princess made up her mind to sell the house and move to Arizona where the cost of living was lower.

For the past several months, it seemed like Prepper Princess abandoned the ideas that she had had about prepping, and instead focused primarily on money, selling her house, and leaving California.  She gave away her chickens, she gave away many of her supplies, she spoke about home gardening not being cost effective, and she said that she was going to buy a home in Arizona that had no yard for chickens or a garden.

Prepper Princess sold her house in February 2020, and after splitting the “profit” with her brother, she said that she had $250K from the sale of her home. She had another $150K that she had somehow managed to save, and she was going to invest this $400K.  In the video below, Prepper Princess explains that if you invest money at 10% rate of return, every seven years, the money doubles.

Seven years from now, at age 45, she would have $800K.  Seven years later at age 52, she would have $1.6 million.  And at age 59, she would have $3.2 million.

I started out liking Prepper Princess, I thought that she was attractive.  At first, when she was talking about $1 or $2 meals for lunch or dinner, collecting aluminum cans, searching through garbage for things that she might like to keep, not spending money on clothes, I thought that she was a little extreme on trying to save money.  The more that I watched her constantly doing things like this, it became tiring and irritating to me.

Myself and other YouTube viewers, we started leaving comments to Prepper Princess’s videos, saying will you please indulge in buying some new clothes, going out to eat, doing something fun, instead of working and trying to not spend money all the time, you are going to miss out on life, grow old, and die without living.

What good is it to pinch pennies and sacrifice for fifty years to become a millionaire, and then get hit by a car or get cancer and die at the age of 51, without having enjoyed life and having done things?

For the past month, all of my comments to Prepper Princess’s videos are deleted.  This makes me angry for a number of reasons.  Prepper Princess wanted to get her ideas out to the public about prepping, to share her ideas, and she also began talking about politics, economics, her personal life, her childhood, her life as an adult, her relationship, her activities, her personal finances, what she was doing with her money, and where she was moving.  She invited and encouraged people like me to watch her YouTube videos where she expresses her views, yet I am not allowed to say anything in response?

One of the things that I would like to tell Prepper Princess, is to be wary of investing so much of your money.  Besides companies like Enron, which appeared to be a good company to invest in, but later turned out to be a fraud, look at the failure of once stable companies like Sears, JC Penny, and Kmart.  Whiting Petroleum shares went from $370 per share in 2014, to $1.30 per share currently, who would have thought that this would happen?

In one of her most recent videos, Prepper Princess was showing the interior of the home that she had just bought and moved to in Arizona.  She is not telling anyone where she moved to, but she was showing her house and talking about the neighborhood that she had just moved into.  I left a comment about her house, and offered some advice, but my comment was deleted.  I left a reply to some other woman’s comment, who was chastising Prepper Princess, and my comment was deleted.  This made me angry.  So I wanted to find out exactly where this home was.

To my shock and horror, Prepper Princess had bought about the cheapest house on the market in a small Arizona town.  It is a 2-bedroom, 1.75-bath house, in not very good condition, a tiny house, with a completely flat roof, on a very small lot, with no trees and no vegetation.  It is very bleak, and depressing.  Why, why did she do this to herself?  She had plenty of money to not have to do this.

I had to look through more than one hundred real estate listings to find this house, and during this search, I saw some very nice houses in the $110K-$140K price range, with landscaped yards, attractive exteriors, clean modern interiors, sun rooms, decks, spacious living rooms and kitchens, and new looking bathrooms.  There are some very nice, affordable homes in this county, I was very pleasantly surprised to see.  I wish that Prepper Princess would stop with the self-torture and self-deprivation, she could have just as easily bought a lovely, inviting, well cared for home.

Update:  On March 29, 2020, I received an email from Prepper Princess complaining about this blog post, wanting me to delete it.

If you make a couple of videos per week, every week for several years, showing where you live, what you are doing where you live, talking about your personal life, relationships, and finances, inviting as many people as possible to watch your videos and subscribe to your video channel which is about how you live, how can you then complain about your privacy being violated?

My inclusion of the link to Prepper Princess’ new home photographs on a real estate listing site was perhaps something that she never thought of when she began showing videos of her new house.

Women want things both ways.  Prepper Princess has made three videos showing her new house on YouTube, to whoever wants to see it.  However, if I provide a link to the real estate listing photographs of her new house, she is outraged, and doesn’t want anyone looking at her new house.

Prepper Princess wants to show everyone what she is doing in her videos, then complain that people are watching what she is doing.

Because I don’t want Prepper Princess to be able to make any kind of legal complaint that I had no right to show where she lived, today I removed the link to the real estate listing of her new house.

How Dickinson Works, And What Is Going To Happen, Part II

Although this blog post is a continuation from Part I, here is where I begin explaining the basis for understanding how Dickinson, North Dakota works.

If anyone wants or expects to be successful in Dickinson, they must first understand how Dickinson works.  I am going to start off with the simplest, most important facts first.

Foremost, Dickinson is the regional center for shopping, supplies, and services for the geographical areas consisting of Medora, Belfield, South Heart, New Hradec, Manning, Killdeer, Halliday, Dodge, Gladstone, Taylor, Richardton, Lefor, Regent, and New England.  No matter what else happens, Dickinson being the supply center for these aforementioned towns is not likely to change for a long time.  The next largest city, Bismarck, the state capital, is 100 miles to the east.  Here is a map of the Dickinson area
https://images.app.goo.gl/su98oCKBHxrKd3pNA

Geographically, there is nothing special or unique about Dickinson.  It sits on a rolling, nearly tree-less prairie, just like all of the other towns in this area.  Dickinson got its start the same way as all of the other towns in western North Dakota, it was settled by land-grant homesteaders after the passage of the 1862 Homestead Act.  The homesteaders in the Dickinson area were primarily immigrants from Ukraine, Germany, and Scandinavia.

The fourteen towns that I mentioned earlier, Medora, Belfield, South Heart, New Hradec, Manning, Killdeer, Halliday, Dodge, Gladstone, Taylor, Richardton, Lefor, Regent, and New England, by the early 1900s each of these towns had their own general store, school house, and churches.  Before the invention and widespread use of the automobile, it took much more time to travel, it was done by horse, buggy, wagon, or on foot.  Even small communities had to have some local businesses, a school house, and churches.

Some of the factors or circumstances that caused Dickinson to grow more than the surrounding towns were:  the Northern Pacific railroad was built through Dickinson in the 1880s;  the 40-room St. Josephs Hospital was built in Dickinson in 1911;  Dickinson  State University was founded in 1918;  the Dickinson Municipal Airport began airline service in 1959;  Interstate 94 was completed through Dickinson in the 1960s.

As Dickinson grew, gained more businesses, provided more services, and its infrastructure grew, the surrounding towns began to rely more and more on Dickinson for supplies and services.  Unfortunately, as time went on, the surrounding towns began to lose many of their own local businesses and services, because of Dickinson.

For instance, the towns of Medora, Belfield, South Heart, New Hradec, Manning, Halliday, Dodge, Gladstone, Lefor, Regent, and New England no longer have a grocery store, family clothing store, appliance store, drug store, pharmacy, clinic, or doctor.  Most of the surrounding towns do not have an automobile dealer, an automobile repair shop, a tire dealer, or barber shop.

The following are the essential businesses in Dickinson, the type of businesses that this area can not go without:

Four grocery stores, five hardware stores, two farm/ranch supply stores, three building supply stores, five tire stores, nine automobile dealers, nine auto repair shops, four automobile tow companies, four pharmacies, two funeral homes, five liquor stores, and Walmart.

The following businesses in Dickinson are almost essential to this area:

Three truck stops, two tractor truck repair/parts centers, several heavy equipment/farm equipment dealer/repair/parts centers, three heavy equipment rental yards, several industrial/electrical/welding supply warehouses, three utility/livestock trailer dealer/repair centers, ten fast food restaurants, half a dozen furniture stores, and eleven banks.

These aforementioned businesses in Dickinson are either essential or very nearly essential to this area.  Because of these businesses, this is what brings people to Dickinson, brings money to Dickinson, and provides employment for people in Dickinson.  Without these businesses, there would be no people coming to Dickinson, no money coming into Dickinson, no employment in Dickinson, and very few people able to live in Dickinson.

When I start to list the essential services in Dickinson below, such as the schools and hospitals, the reader must remember, if it were not for the large number of essential businesses in Dickinson that bring people to Dickinson, there would not be enough people living in Dickinson to have schools and hospitals.  The services are here, because of the number of people here, and the number of people here, are the result of the large number of essential businesses in Dickinson.

The following are the essential services in Dickinson, the services that this area can not go without:

Two public utility companies, two public phone service companies, one ambulance service, two medium size hospitals, half a dozen medical clinics, half a dozen dentists, several optometrists, police department, sheriff department, regional jail, several fire stations, highway patrol office, city maintenance department, department of transportation office, driver’s license office, regional court house, one post office, two high schools, middle school, several elementary schools, and several veterinarians.

The following services in Dickinson are very nearly essential to this area:

One regional airport with private airplane and commercial airline service, one bus service, several car rental services, half a dozen taxi services, a dozen motels/hotels, many beauticians and barbers, two dozen attorneys, a dozen CPAs, many residential and commercial contractors in plumbing, electrical, HVAC, roofing, home construction, concrete, and excavation.

I spent some time trying to specifically identify the essential businesses and essential services in Dickinson, to make everyone completely aware, that many of the other types of businesses and services in Dickinson are just supplemental, they are not critical.

Some of the supplemental, non-critical types of businesses and services in Dickinson are:

Traditional restaurants, pizza delivery, ice cream parlors, coffee shops, bars, sports bars, bicycle shops, guns stores, sporting goods stores, movie theaters, motorcycle dealers, snow mobile dealers, UTV dealers, travel trailer dealers, tattoo parlors, vehicle accessory dealers, jewelry stores, dance studios, fitness centers, tanning salons, pawn shops, daycare centers, insurance agencies, real estate agencies.

Lastly, I need to name some of the large companies that operate in Dickinson, that have not been covered yet because they are not an essential business or service in Dickinson, but they do employ many people in Dickinson.  These are companies that perform work or sell products outside of the Dickinson area:

Halliburton, Schlumberger, BJ Services, Marathon Oil, Continental Resources, Philips Conoco, Whiting Petroleum, Key Energy, MBI, Nuverra, Lufkin, Fisher Industries, General Steel, Medora Corporation, Steffes, TMI cabinets, Killdeer Mountain Manufacturing, Martin Construction, Northern Improvement, Baranko Brothers, Tooz Construction, and Winn Construction.

There are several reasons why I separated the businesses and services in Dickinson into separate categories. One reason was to provide clarity on what types of businesses and services there are in Dickinson; Second, I wanted to differentiate between essential/non-essential businesses and services; and Third, I wanted to be able to show how the end of the oil boom in Dickinson is going to affect businesses, services, and employment in Dickinson based on the role of the business or service in the economy.

The most recent oil boom in North Dakota lasted from 2007 through 2015.  Due to the price of oil dropping from over $100 per barrel to less than $50 per barrel in 2015, the oil companies decreased drilling operations.

The number of operating oil drill rigs in North Dakota went from over 200 to less than 50 currently.  Less drilling meant less well sites being developed, less drill rigs operating, less drill rigs being transported, less hydraulic fracturing, less sand and water hauling, less work-over rig completions, less pump jacks being installed, less cranes being rented, less tractor truck and hot shot transportation of material and equipment to the oil field.

The number of workers employed in the oil field decreased.  Many of the oil field workers who lost their job left the Dickinson area.  Consequently, there were fewer purchases and less money spent at local businesses such as auto dealers, auto repair shops, tire stores, furniture stores, grocery stores, hardware stores, restaurants, bars, sporting goods stores, movie theaters, etcetera.

Many workers leaving Dickinson caused there to be a decreased demand for housing.  The number of new and existing homes and apartments available for occupancy, exceeded the demand.  This was a signal that new homes, new apartments, new businesses, new shopping centers, new roads, and new infrastructure might not need to be constructed.

The residential and commercial construction industries slowed down in the Dickinson area.  This meant even more unemployed workers leaving the Dickinson area.  Less heavy equipment was being purchased, less heavy equipment was being rented, less building supplies were being purchased, local businesses had fewer customers and fewer purchases, less services were being used, more homes and apartments became vacated.

Near the beginning of March 2020, the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries, OPEC, and Russia did not agree to reduce the amount of oil that they were producing.  This caused an oversupply of oil on the World market, and the price of oil in the U.S. dropped to $31 per barrel after the first week of March.  This oil price drop is predicted to start a whole new oil industry slow down, with even less oil well sites being developed and drilled.

The oil field work in Dickinson is expected to decrease even further now, with more oil field workers losing their jobs and leaving Dickinson.  There will be even fewer customers and less money spent at local businesses and services in Dickinson.

The essential businesses in Dickinson, such as grocery stores, hardware stores, automobile dealers, and tire stores, they will have fewer customers, they will be less busy, and some of these businesses will reduce their number of employees.

The nearly essential business such as heavy equipment dealers, heavy equipment repair, trailer dealers, furniture stores, and banks will reduce their number of employees.

The essential service providers such as medical clinics and schools will eventually reduce some of their staff as there are fewer people in Dickinson.

The nearly essential service providers such as beauticians, attorneys, plumbers, electricians, and HVAC will have less work.

Supplemental non-critical businesses and services in Dickinson that will have less work, and require fewer workers are restaurants, coffee shops, tattoo parlors, recreational vehicle dealers, daycare centers, insurance agencies, and real estate agencies.

Some of the large employers in Dickinson who will have less work, and could reduce their workforce are:  Halliburton, Schlumberger, BJ Services, Marathon Oil, Continental Resources, Conoco Philips, Whiting Petroleum, MBI, Nuverra, Lufkin, Steffes, Martin Construction, Northern Improvement, Baranko Brothers, Tooz Construction, and Winn Construction.

Once essential businesses, essential service providers, supplemental business and services, and some of the largest employers in Dickinson have let some of their workers go, these unemployed workers and their families may have to leave the Dickinson area.  This in turn will make Dickinson even smaller, with even less consumers.

Dickinson will continue to be the regional supplier of goods and services for this area, because there are fourteen smaller towns surrounding Dickinson that rely on it.  I estimate that the population of Dickinson right now is approximately 24,000 people.  By the year 2022, I believe that the population of Dickinson will have decreased to about 21,000 people.

The reason for the expected decline in population, is because of the reduced work in the oil field.  Unemployed oil field workers will leave Dickinson, local businesses and services will become less busy, these local businesses and services will lay off some of their workers.  These unemployed workers and their families will leave Dickinson.

Prairie Business Magazine’s 25 Top Women In Business, The Ones I Would Like To See Naked

Very late last night I saw a Dickinson Press newspaper article titled, “Prairie Business Magazine announces its ’25 Top Women in Business’ for 2020.”  I thought to myself, “Oh yeah, let me see this.”, because I have seen some bullshit, fake, make-believe nominees on this list in the past, from Dickinson.

Once I reviewed this entire list of 25 women, reading the few paragraphs about each woman, I felt relieved to see that there were no obvious women who didn’t belong on this list.  This was a pretty conservative, non-controversial list of women.

However, like 95%-100% of male readers, I was taking note of who was hot, and who was not.  Then, I went back through this list of 25 women nominees, to determine and decide which ones that I would like to see naked, and why.

Before I go any further, here is the link to this article, so that the reader can look these women over too, and either agree or disagree with my picks: https://www.inforum.com/business/4986221-Prairie-Business-Magazine-announces-its-25-Top-Women-in-Business-for-2020

I also want to give a warning and disclaimer, though women can look nice, they can turn on you at any time, they are treacherous and conniving, you can never trust them completely, you can never tell what they are going to do, so I am not saying that having any involvement with any of these women is a good idea.

Starting at the top of the list of the nominee women in the article and proceeding to the bottom, here is my list and explanation of the women that I would like to see naked:  (Photos and biographies copied from Inforum.com)

My opinion, I like Sandy, but I don’t think that Sandy would like me.  Good luck trying to get her to take her clothes off.  That is why I studied hypnosis and mesmerizing, I could hypnotize Sandy to believe that she was on her honeymoon with me, her new husband, on her second marriage.

There she helped financial advisors across the county with their marketing, helping them to grow their business and gain more clients. Jillian also obtained her FINRA Series 7 and 66 investment licenses during this time….

My opinion, last but not least, Jillian.  Naughty looking  Jillian was the one who inspired me to write this blog post article in the first place.  I could picture Jillian wearing high heels, and modeling Bikinis and lingerie.

Note:  I don’t care if any of the women mentioned in this article of mine are furious and outraged, this is one of the reasons why I wrote it.  I probably need to say that I don’t plan on kidnapping or abducting any of the women mentioned in this article, because I live in an apartment, and I don’t have anywhere to keep them, unless I rent a farmhouse out in the middle of nowhere.

Also, I don’t think that I can successfully be sued for defamation, libel, or slander because this requires that I make statements of fact that are untrue and defamatory, whereas my statements are opinions, are not defamatory, and are perhaps even complimentary.

How Dickinson Works, And What Is Going To Happen, Part I

When I became an adult, and was living on my own, whatever town or city that I was living in, I tried to figure out what was going on, what was happening, and what were the causes and reasons for what was happening.

Whether it was my hometown, a college town like Gainesville, a city like Tampa, or a mountain destination town like Flagstaff, I took an interest in the nicest, largest homes, the wealthiest neighborhoods, and I wondered who were the people who lived there, what did they do for a living, and how did they make their money?

The people who were able to afford very nice homes, nice automobiles, and enjoyed a high standard of living, I believed that if I could learn some of the things that they had done to become successful, maybe I could copy them or adapt some of the things that they had done, in order to become successful too.

Successful people who won the lottery or inherited a large amount of money from their relatives, you obviously can’t just copy that.  Medical doctors who became wealthy as they got older, most people aren’t able to become a doctor in the first place.  Wealthy real estate brokers, insurance company owners, car dealership owners, manufacturing company owners, and other business owners, these people caused me to wonder how they got started.

When I had the chance to talk to and get to know wealthy, successful business owners, it turned out that their success had a lot to do with being in the right place, at the right time, with the right idea, and a willingness to take risks at that time.  There was some “dumb luck”, or “blind luck”, but these people also had an understanding or belief that their idea would work at that particular time and place, that came from their understanding of what was going on in the World, and the place that they were.

What I am trying to explain, is that if you want to be successful, you first have to understand where you are, what is going on, and what is happening where you are.  You, the reader, are probably thinking that I am pointing out the obvious, thinking, “Of course people try to understand what is happening around them.”  But, no, they don’t, not really.  Most people just get an impression or idea in their head, and that is their conclusion.  They don’t think any further, to test, challenge, examine, or validate their conclusions.

In Dickinson, North Dakota, where I am currently living, most of the people here form their opinion about reality from listening to their neighbors, friends, relatives, local politicians, community leaders, and Chamber of Commerce; from watching television news stations out of Bismarck and Fargo; from reading the Bismarck Tribune or Dickinson Press newspaper; or from what they see on Facebook or hear on the radio.  These sources that I just mentioned are O.K. to get information from, but the impression that local people get from these sources, is their conclusion, they don’t think any further to examine, analyze, test, check, or question their immediate conclusions.

Concerning Dickinson, what the newscasters in Bismarck or Fargo said on the nightly news, what nationwide newscasters said, what local politicians, community leaders, company owners, business managers, and Chamber of Commerce representatives said in newspaper, radio, or television interviews, when their statements didn’t seem to match what was actually happening in Dickinson, I was angry about it, because people in Dickinson formed their understanding of reality and made their life decisions based on incorrect information that was being reported, written, said, and spread.

Questioning what newscasters in Bismarck, Fargo, or New York said about Dickinson, had they ever even been to Dickinson?  It turns out, that most news reporters and writers for television, radio, newspapers, magazines, and journals were getting their information from local politicians, community leaders, company owners, business managers, and Chamber of Commerce representatives, a group of people who can’t or won’t ever say anything other than positive outlook statements.

The following misinformation was reported so often and repeated so often that most of the people in Dickinson still to this day, think that this is reality:  One, “This oil boom is going to last for the next twenty years.” and Two, “Everyone working in the oil field is making $100,000 per year.”

The oil boom in North Dakota lasted from 2007 through 2015.  This oil boom began once the price of oil was over $100 per barrel, it became profitable to extract North Dakota oil through the process of hydraulic fracturing.  Once the price of oil dropped below $50 per barrel in 2015, it was no longer profitable for oil companies to drill and use hydraulic fracturing to produce oil.

The number of operating oil drill rigs in North Dakota went from over 200, to less than 50 currently.  From 2015 through the present, residents in Dickinson still express the belief, “It’s going to come back.” and “It’s starting to pick back up again.”  In the history of the World, there has never been an oil boom that lasted more than ten years in one place, but the people in Dickinson do not believe this reality.

One of the largest oil companies operating in the Dickinson area, is Whiting Petroleum.  The stock price of Whiting Petroleum reached an all-time high of $370 per share in 2014.  Last week, Whiting Petroleum stock was trading at $1.28 per share.  In the past year, Whiting Petroleum laid off one-third of its workforce in order to cut costs.

Many people in Dickinson have believed for years that, “Everyone working in the oil field is making $100,000 per year.”  This has never been true, and it certainly is not true now.  This belief, and the belief that “It’s starting to pick back up again” has misguided many of the people in Dickinson, causing them to make bad life decisions.

Instead of realizing that the oil boom in North Dakota was a once-in-a-lifetime, short-lived deal, most of the people in Dickinson acted like there was no end to it.  The sudden dramatic increase in local business, the sudden increase in demand for goods, services, and housing, allowed many local people to make windfall money, especially land owners and people who owned the mineral rights on land.

What did the local people in Dickinson do with their windfall money?  Most of them purchased the most expensive, over-priced, top-of-the-line pickup truck, travel trailer, UTV, toy hauler, or snow mobile.  Now, looking back on these purchases made in 2008-2014, roughly ten years later, all of these things are worth less than half of what they originally cost, and they are continuing to decline in value until they are nearly worthless.

Had the people in Dickinson known the truth, that this North Dakota oil boom would last from 2007-2015, they may not have spent their windfall money so carelessly and frivolously, and instead saved and invested their money so that it would last them for the remainder of their lives.

Another thing that happened in Dickinson during the oil boom, the housing prices doubled, then quadrupled.  A house in Dickinson that might have sold for $75,000 in 2006, the asking price in 2012-2014 might have been $300,000.  Some local people, and some out-of-state workers, bought houses in Dickinson at the peak of the oil boom real estate market.  They did this, because they believed that the oil boom would continue, they had better buy a house now, the house prices would only continue to increase.

Now that the oil boom is over in Dickinson, a house that was purchased for $300,000 in 2012-2014, it might only sell for $200,000 now, or it might not even sell at $150,000.  Most of the people in Dickinson are not making very much money now, many people have left Dickinson, and many people have job uncertainty.

Everyone in Dickinson needs to start over on assessing what reality is in Dickinson, what is going on, what is happening, what are the reasons and causes for what is happening.  In my next blog post, Part II, I will start with the basic essential businesses, services, and employees in Dickinson, that which everything else is built upon, so that people can see and understand what is happening, and what is going to happen.

Makeup Tips For Getting Hired To Work On An Oil Drill Rig

One of the most selective and difficult jobs to get in the oil field is working directly on an oil drill rig.  These jobs typically require standing on your feet for a 12-hour shift, for two weeks straight, followed by one week off-duty.

Typically at oil drilling company offices, the administrative lobby area will have a two way mirror which is reflective on one side, and transparent through the other side.  When an applicant walks in the door, a company administrator is looking at the applicant from the back side of the mirror without their knowledge, judging their health and physical fitness.

Oil companies know from experience that only youthful, healthy, physically fit individuals with no physical defects will be able to handle the long hours of physical work, standing on a drill rig platform, or carrying things up and down the stairs or derrick.

One of the biggest signs of physical health, is physical beauty, the two go together.  Therefore, the oil drilling companies are looking for the most healthy/beautiful applicants.  Also, the driller and rig boss don’t want to have to look at ugly people for twelve hours per day, two weeks straight, for months at a time.

Here is a video showing some makeup tips that will help you get hired and keep your job on an oil drill rig:

What Happened To Erik Odegaard Is A Tragedy That Is Everyone’s Fault

What happened to Erik Odegaard in Dickinson, North Dakota is a tragedy that is everyone’s fault.  It was bound to happen to someone, and this same thing is going to keep happening in Dickinson unless something is done to prevent it.

For a long time, ever since the first homesteaders came to Dickinson in the late 1800s, attractive women will not come here, they will not stay here, and the attractive girls who are born here, leave as soon as they are able.

It probably has to do with Dickinson being poor, hard, barren, desolate, cold, bleak, inhospitable, ignorant, and uneducated that makes attractive women want to leave Dickinson and go elsewhere, or never come here in the first place.

The result, the only women who will stay in Dickinson are unattractive and mean.  With no other choice, low standards, no standards, and low expectations in life, the men in this area went ahead and had sex with these ugly, mean women, and their offspring were even uglier and meaner.  If by chance there was ever an attractive girl who was born here, she got out of here as soon as possible.

Dickinson has by far the ugliest women of anywhere that I have ever been.  The women here are unattractive, overweight, disfigured, sloven, mean, scowling, glaring, sneering, and leering.  This is mostly a result of poor breeding and genetics, but the environment, culture, and education here has a lot to do with the ugliness of the women.

For example, in most states, the owner of a bar or restaurant would not seek out the ugliest, meanest, nastiest women to be a bartender or waitress.  In other states, when an employer does hire an ugly, overweight, mean, nasty woman, she is required to stay in the back of the business, and stay out of sight of the customers.  But in Dickinson, fat, ugly, mean, sneering ogre women work as bartenders and waitresses, at the front of the house, probably because that’s the only women that they can get in Dickinson.

In Dickinson, women from wealthy families who have the advantage of access to good healthcare, good food, education, travel, and more exposure to culture, ….  there aren’t any women like this in Dickinson.  Women from middle-class families in Dickinson, who have access to healthcare, food, education, and beauty products, ….there are very few of these women in Dickinson.

The Skank-class of women in Dickinson, women who grew up in single-parent households, with not a lot of food, not a lot of clothes, no encouragement in school, and low expectations in life,…..there are not even very many of these Skank women in Dickinson, they get up and leave, or won’t come to Dickinson in the first place.

The women who are here in Dickinson, are the battle-axe, ogre, troll, ham-fisted, hog-head, no-neck, cankle-calf, overweight, mean, hostile, glaring, sneering, leering, scowling, disfigured women.

Erik Odegaard grew up in Dickinson, the son of a fairly normal mother and father who both worked.  Erik was a nice looking young man, who was polite, courteous, helpful, and respectful.  Erik was well-liked by his classmates, peers, teachers, adults, and employers because of his good behavior and positive attitude.

After graduating from high school in Dickinson, Erik joined the U.S. Army, and he later became an Army Medic.  After his enlistment was over, or transferring to the Army Reserves, Erik returned to Dickinson.

Upon arriving back in Dickinson, now at the age of 20 years, Erik found that many of his high school classmates had left Dickinson.  Especially, most of the nice looking, attractive, pleasant young women from high school had left Dickinson and moved far away to places like Denver, Billings, and Miami.

There is very little to do in Dickinson, and Erik became lonely, especially because the nice looking, attractive young women who graduated from high school had moved away.  Out and about in Dickinson, there were no nice young women, only the most wretched, disgusting, nasty, mean, troll-ogre, disfigured women.

Normally, in most towns, a lonely young man would soon find a nice Skank girl, working in a restaurant, bank, or hair salon, who would gladly go on dates with such a nice young man, recently out of the military like Erik.  But in Dickinson, there aren’t even any Skank women.

The only pleasant, feminine, attractive young girl that Erik could find for companionship, was still in high school.  For the whole history of mankind, twenty year old men have been in romantic relationships or marriage with teen-aged girls, but the evil people in Dickinson wanted to persecute Erik for this, and so they did.

Erik, who was such a nice looking, helpful, courteous, respectful, positive, well-liked, promising young man, has just been convicted of a Class A Felony, and sentenced to spend the next 2-1/2 years in prison.

This is everyone’s fault in Dickinson.  For over a hundred years, the people in Dickinson have been breeding and in-breeding, the ugliest women imaginable, to produce these hairy-faced Heidi Heitkamp looking things, which nobody in their right mind would touch with even a ten-foot pole.

Everyone here knows that the attractive girls leave here right after they get out of high school, they won’t come back, and no attractive women will come here.  There is a shortage of women in Dickinson, and a scarcity of attractive women.

How this is handled in other parts of the World, when there is a scarcity of women, is with prostitution, such as EscortOfItaly.com, which operates in Rome, Milan, Florence, and Bologna.  Here is a link to the women available http://www.escortofitaly.com/Milan/Gallery

However, in Dickinson, where there is a great shortage of women, prostitution is not allowed.  The ratio of men to women in Dickinson is 3:1, the women who are here, are overweight, disfigured, and grotesque, and prostitution is not allowed.  So what the people in Dickinson are doing, is deliberately setting a trap, because they are sinister, malevolent, and evil.

There was a poor, small young man from Nepal, who came to Dickinson to work and go to school.  This young man named Manish, he worked in convenience stores, and as a cook, while he attended Dickinson State University to study accounting.  Finally, after years of hard work, struggle, and sacrifice, Manish graduated from DSU with a degree in accounting.

Life changed for the better for Manish, soon he became employed at a reputable, well-known local business as an accountant.  But like young men do, Manish become lonely for company.  Being small, being from a foreign country, and there being a great shortage of women in Dickinson, Manish had difficulty meeting any women.  Finally, Manish met a woman on the internet in Dickinson.

But unbeknownst to Manish, the woman that he met on the internet, she did not exist, she was made up by the Dickinson Police, in an elaborate trap that they had set up.  Soon, the Dickinson Police sprung their trap on Manish, and they tried to frame him for a twenty year prison sentence.  The same kind of twenty year prison sentence that Erik Odegaard was faced with.

Manish, instead of finding companionship, he was forced to spend probably $10,000 for an attorney, in order to not go to prison for twenty years.  The same thing for Erik, Erik was forced to spend probably $10,000 or more for an attorney, in order to not go to prison for twenty years.

The cost to tax payers to prosecute and incarcerate Erik Odegaard for 2-1/2 years is approximately $120,000.   The cost of one of these prostitutes shown here, http://www.escortofitaly.com/Milan/Gallery, is only $250 per hour.  The State of North Dakota could have paid for 480 hours of prostitutes, and not made Erik a Felon.

The people in Dickinson have bred these hideous monsters that are good for nothing, these disfigured disgusting terrible beasts, that make it impossible to go out to bars and restaurants in Dickinson, and then when normal young men try to find a mate, these same sick evil people in Dickinson try to lay different kinds of traps leading to twenty years in prison.

This whole thing is very little Erik’s fault, the people in Dickinson set this up, this was bound to happen to someone.

Someone Men And Women In Dickinson Can Learn From

This winter in Dickinson I have been more depressed than ever before in my life.  I can’t believe I’m here, living like this, it’s so barren, bleak, and hopeless.  Dickinson is so ugly, it’s ugly through and through.

Here is someone that the men and women in Dickinson can learn from:

The nice looking, polished, well-spoken woman in the video shown above, is not actually a woman, she is a man, named John Maclean.  John Maclean is a professional makeup artist.  Part of the point of John dressing, looking, and acting like a woman, is because he likes to be a woman, but he is also pointing out that if he can look like and act like an attractive, desirable woman, if women made the effort, they could be attractive and desirable as well.

I am trying to point out, if John Maclean, who is a man, can diet, take care of his hair, apply makeup carefully, and practice how he speaks and acts, if he can be an attractive woman, then fat, lazy, pig women can get off their ass and pull themselves together so that they aren’t so repulsive.

Some women can see and learn from John how to apply makeup more effectively and professionally.

I Finally Heard Enough About Single Mothers

This winter in North Dakota I have been staying inside and watching a lot of YouTube videos for entertainment.  Some of my favorite YouTubers are Hammerhand, Terrence Popp, and occasionally Prepper Princess.

Hammerhand tells a few stories from his childhood, but mostly he talks about his current situation battling his ex-wife over child support and child custody.  Terrence Popp tells stories from throughout his life, including his childhood, military career, and divorce from his ex-wife.  Prepper Princess usually ends up talking about her mother, how she was raised, and how she inherited her home which she is now selling for $720K.

I have heard Hammerhand talk about how his mother was single, and how he and his brother grew up poor.  I have heard Terrence Popp talk about how his mother was single, and how he and his sister grew up poor.  And today, Prepper Princess was going on and on about how poor she was growing up with a single mom.

I really had enough of hearing how poor Prepper Princess was growing up, and the context of it, her mother was single and she didn’t make enough money to provide food, clothing, heat, or any recreational activities for her family.

A little from Hammerhand, a little from Terrence Popp, and a lot from Prepper Princess, I get the impression that they feel that they are worthy of some sympathy for how they grew up.  A little from Hammerhand, a little from Terrence Popp, and a lot from Prepper Princess, it’s like they feel that everyone else is responsible for how they grew up, and that their mother is blameless.

A person who was my best friend for about twenty years, Doug, his mother left his father when he was about five years old, and his little brother was three years old.  I listened to Doug re-tell about the landlord coming to collect the rent and they didn’t have it, having nothing to eat but eggs sometimes, not being able to play sports in school because his mother wouldn’t pay for it, and his grandfather coming to live with them in order to help out.

My friend Doug, he had anger and resentment towards his classmates in school, towards other kids in the neighborhood, towards his relatives, anyone who had both a mom and a dad, and a normal life with birthday parties, presents for Christmas, family cook outs, and family vacations.  These other people had absolutely nothing to do with the fact that Doug’s mother left her husband, and that she didn’t make enough money to provide hardly anything for Doug and his brother.

In response to Prepper Princess’s YouTube video today, most of the commentors were talking about how poor they were growing up, how they had a single mom, and how they had seven or nine brothers and sisters.  I had enough, I got sick of hearing it, I couldn’t believe it.  Why the fuck did your stupid bitch mother have seven to nine children and she couldn’t support them?  Why the fuck is this everyone else’s fault that you grew up poor and not your mother’s fault?

Prepper Princess and her commentors talking about having only one tomato and one onion in the refrigerator to eat, only having one meal per day that they got in school as free lunch, getting spoiled food from the food bank, being cold and not being able to turn on the heat, the fact that you were miserable and had a fucked up childhood is not heroic, commendable, or admirable, and it was not other people’s fault, it was solely your mother’s fault.

Men Only Barber Shop In Dickinson, North Dakota

When I first came to Dickinson, North Dakota in 2011, I got my hair cut once with “Ted the Barber”, Ted Kostelecky, when he was still charging $5 per haircut.  When I came back to Dickinson in 2013, I began getting my hair cut with “Ted the Barber” again, and then he began charging $8 per haircut.

I noticed that when Ted Kostelecky cut my hair, it seemed like if another customer got him talking, Ted would forget what he was doing, and keep cutting, and cutting, and cutting, even though I had told Ted that I just wanted 1/4″ to 1/2″ cut off the length, just a trim.

In 2015 I began getting my hair cut with Matt Ellerkamp and Paul Ellerkamp at the “Big Sky Barber Shop” on the north side of Dickinson.  Matt and Paul were so fully booked with appointments, that you could just about never get a “walk-in” hair cut, you had to make an appointment.

Matt and Paul at the Big Sky Barber Shop were good barbers, but sometimes I wanted to get a haircut without making plans in advance.  When I went to the “Queen City Barber Shop” in downtown Dickinson, there was never, ever anyone waiting for a haircut, and I kind of learned why.

When Luke Simons opened the “Gentlemen’s Barber Shop” on the north side of Dickinson in 2018, I was wary of getting my hair cut by Luke, because I didn’t know that he had been a barber before.  To my surprise, Luke turned out to be a better barber than Matt Ellerkamp and Paul Ellerkamp who had owned the Big Sky Barber Shop.

Unfortunately for me, beginning in 2019, more, and more, and more women began taking their children to the Gentlemen’s Barber Shop.  In my entire 50 year life, I had never seen so many women and children in a barber shop, as in Luke Simons’ Gentlemen’s Barber Shop.

I can finally put it into words now, what I think many of these women were doing by going to the Gentlemen’s Barber Shop, there is actually a term for it, it’s called “Monkey Branching”.  Monkey Branching is when women who are married or are in a relationship with a man, go in search of a higher or more stable income earner, and attempt to “Monkey Branch” to a new man.

“Gentlemen’s Barber Shop” is a misnomer now, it should be called “Luke Simons’ Family Fun Center”, or “Luke Simons’ Women’s Monkey Branching Shop”.  Again, I have never seen so many women and children in barber shop in my life.

I had tried going to Matt and Paul Ellerkamp’s new barber shop, “De Porres House of Barbering”, but a more fitting name for this would be “The Catholic Shop” or the “The Catholic Club”, and I never even got my hair cut there or will ever go back there.

A couple of months ago, I found a barber shop where there are no women and children, just a man cutting hair, paying attention to what he is doing, and not charging a lot of money.  Too bad I can’t tell anyone, lest it get ruined by some whore trying to drag her kids there.

Here is a video explaining my thoughts about this, so that I don’t have to:

 

If there was a strip bar in Dickinson, I could picture some housewives coming there with their children, and giving their kids $1 bills to stuff in the strippers’ thongs, because men liked to go there to get away from their wives and children.

M&H Gas Station Called The Police On Me

A couple of years ago I began working at a large industrial site, out in the middle of nowhere, more than a one hour drive from Dickinson, North Dakota where I live.  Early on I realized that I was spending about $100 per week on gasoline for my vehicle to get to and from work.  $100 per week, times 52 weeks per year, that’s $5,200 per year in gasoline cost.

I talked to the CPA who does my taxes, and a co-worker of mine talked to the CPA who does his taxes, and both of these CPA’s told us that neither our gasoline cost to get to and from work, nor our vehicle mileage was deductable on our Federal Income Tax Return.  This $5,200 gasoline cost per year for my commute to work comes out of my own pocket.

Since May of 2019, I started buying fuel primarily from the M&H Gas Station on Villard Street in Dickinson.  For the past ten months, three to four times each week, I buy fuel at this M&H Gas Station.

Today I did a search of my on-line banking checking account statements to view how much money I have spent at this M&H Gas Station in the past ten months.  I had $2,516 worth of debit card charges at M&H #22, seven pages of bank transactions just for M&H #22.  Because I sometimes pay with cash for gasoline when I go inside the store to buy drinks and snacks, I have spent about $3,000 at this M&H Gas Station in the past ten months.

Yesterday when I got to the job site where I work, I received a call from a Dickinson Police Officer.  He told me that the M&H Gas Station had reported me for driving off without paying for gasoline.  I didn’t understand what was going on, I paid for my gasoline at the pump with my debit card, did the transaction not go through?

The Police Officer said, that the M&H clerk told him that I did not pay with my debit card according to what she saw on the surveillance video.  I said that I would go back and pay the following morning.  The Police Officer said O.K., he would call and let them know.

At first I was kind of confused, and I didn’t understand.  I had said to the Police Officer, “How could I even pump gas without either pre-paying or using my debit card at the pump?”  I looked up my online checking account statement to see if a $21.00 charge for M&H had gone through, it had not.

I called the M&H Gas Station and said that I would come to the store tomorrow morning.  The store clerk said that I could look at the store surveillance video recording tomorrow.

The Police Officer who called me was O.K., he was acting like I just forgot to pay.  The store clerk who turned me in to the Police, “Kristin”?, she was acting like I must have just forgotten to pay.  Most readers would think that this situation was no big deal, but to me it is, and I will explain why.

I didn’t answer my phone the first time around when the Police were calling me, because I thought that it was a waste-of-time telemarketer.  I almost didn’t answer my phone when it later began ringing again.  If the Dickinson Police had been unable to reach me by phone, and instead stopped me on the street or came to my apartment with some kind of arrest warrant, I would have freaked out, protested, resisted arrest, because I would not have understood what the Police were talking about, certainly they must be mistaken.

How could I be charged with driving off from the M&H Gas Station without paying for fuel, I get fuel there three to four times every week for the past ten months, what do you mean I didn’t pay, when didn’t I pay, how could I have gotten gas without paying?

The other reason why this was a big deal to me, is because every year I have to fill out a form/questionnaire and undergo a nation-wide FBI criminal background check of both my name and my fingerprints, in order to continue my employment.  A co-worker of mine failed his background clearance because of a gas-station drive-off, even though there was a deferred prosecution of criminal charges.

To emphasize what I am saying, I would not have understood why I was being charged with a gas station drive-off when I use this gas station three to four times per week, and I didn’t even know the gas pumps would work without pre-paying or using a debit card.  And, being charged with a gas station drive-off would probably cause me to fail my yearly background check and lose my employment.

I paid the $21.00 the following morning at the M&H Gas Station in Dickinson.  I called the regional manager for M&H Gas Stations in North Dakota, “Kevin”.  I explained to Kevin, what had happened.  I explained to Kevin that I have bank records showing that I have spent about $3,000 at this M&H Gas Station in Dickinson in the past year, I go there three to four times every week, why couldn’t they just have waited for me to come in next time?

I also explained that calling the Police on me is possibly going to cause me to fail my yearly background check and lose my employment.  Kevin explained that this was just store policy.  I said O.K., if I spend this money at your store, come to your store three to four times per week, and you are going to call the Police on me for $21.00, then it’s my policy to never use M&H Gas Stations again.

I called the corporate headquarters of M&H Convenience Stores, Miller & Holmes Inc., located in Hudson, Wisconsin.  I talked to a couple of women there, who were both polite and they discussed what happened with me.  Kim Haggerty, who is kind of like a vice-president, was supposed to call me back today, but she did not.

I think that I may have gotten them to consider that if you own a business, and you have a customer that comes to your business three to four times per week, and has spent $3,000 at your business, maybe you shouldn’t call the Police on them if they forget to pay $21.00.

M&H Gas Stations can handle it this way if they want to, but since they called the Police on me, and because of the problems that this could cause me, I will never use an M&H Gas Station ever again.

Are The People In Dickinson Descendants Of Zana The Captured Russian Yeti

When I have described the women in Dickinson, North Dakota, I have written that they are glaring, scowling, sneering, leering, mean, hostile, ham-fisted, cankle-calf, no-neck, line-bakcer, battle-axe, monsters.  I tried to understand why the women here are like this, and it has to do with breeding.

Somehow, the way that the people in Dickinson paired up and mated, over time, this is what happened.  But part of this breeding equation, is that the attractive girls who were born in Dickinson, they escaped from Dickinson as soon as they were able.  Add to this, attractive women from elsewhere will not move to Dickinson.  So the only women in Dickinson available for mating were ugly and mean.

I thought that this situation was strange and unusual, the homesteaders in Dickinson were primarily German and Ukrainian, mostly Ukrainian.  Ukrainian women aren’t ugly.  For example, if you go to the website EscortOfItaly.com, and look at the “Gallery” of women, these are all Russian and Ukrainian women, and they are extraordinarily beautiful http://www.escortofitaly.com/Milan/Gallery .  Why don’t the women in Dickinson look like this?

The more that I thought about it, the more I began to realize that the women in Dickinson act like the Yeti that was captured in Russia in the late 1800s, who later had offspring with human men.  Could it be that the people in Dickinson are the descendants of the captured Russian Yeti named Zana?

Before I give the link to the very good article about the captured Russian Yeti named Zana, I want to give a few excerpts from this article, to point out the similarities with the women in Dickinson:

“At first Genaba lodged her in a very strong enclosure and nobody ventured in to give her food, for she acted like a wild beast.  It was thrown to her.  She dug herself a hole in the ground and slept in it and for the first three years she lived in this wild state, gradually becoming tamer.  After three years she was moved to a wattle-fence enclosure under an awning near the house, tethered at first, but later she was let loose to wander about.  However she never went far from the place where she received her food.  She could not endure warm rooms and the year round, in any weather, slept outdoors in a hole that she made herself under the awning.”

( Note from the paragraph above that Zana could not stand warm rooms, she liked the cold.)

“Villagers teased her with sticks thrust through the wattle-fence, and she would snatch them with fury, bare her teeth and howl.”

“Her face was terrifying; broad, with high cheekbones, flat nose, turned out nostrils, muzzle-like jaws, wide mouth with large teeth, low forehead, and eyes of a reddish tinge.  But the most frightening feature was her expression which was purely animal, not human.  Sometimes, she would give a spontaneous laugh, baring those big white teeth of hers.  The latter were so strong that she easily cracked the hardest walnuts.”

“She ate whatever was offered to her, including hominy and meat, with bare hands and enormous gluttony.  She loved wine, and was allowed her fill, after which she would sleep for hours in a swoonlike state.”

“She liked to lie in a cool pool side by side with buffalos.  At night she used to roam the surrounding hills.  She wielded big sticks against dogs and on other perilous occasions.  She had a curious obsession for playing with stones, knocking one against another and splitting them.”

“She was trained to perform simple domestic tasks, such as grinding grain for flour, bringing home firewood and water, or sacks to and from the water-mill, or working at the bowling alley diner.”

If this doesn’t describe the women in Dickinson perfectly, I don’t know what does.  In order for the reader to absorb these facts, I am withholding my other evidence until a later date, to be included in a future forthcoming blog post.  Here is the link to the very thorough historical research article about Zana  http://www.bigfootencounters.com/articles/zana.htm

 

The Story Of Teal The Calico Crayfish

There once was a young calico crayfish named Teal, who grew up in Dickinson, North Dakota not far from the Heart River that flows through Dickinson.  Teal was a very active and energetic young crayfish, she enjoyed hiking, running, and rock climbing.

Near the end of the North Dakota oil boom, Teal hitched a ride with some hippies to reach Bozeman, Montana.  There are many more rivers near Bozeman: the Gallatin, the Yellowstone, Madison, Jefferson, and Missouri to name a few.

The young crayfishermen in Montana would lower their traps into the river where Teal lived, and she would happily climb in.  When the young crayfishermen would pull their trap closer, they would say, “Damn, durn, and doubledang!  Look at this miserable, skinny crayfish, she’s not even worth the trouble.”  And they would toss her back into the river.

Life went on like this for a while, until one day, an older gentleman spotted Teal poking out from under a rock.  He scooped her up, and said, “My, what have we here?  I think I’ll take you home, and fatten you up, my pinchy pet.”

He took Teal home, and he kept her in his basement.  He brought for her fresh fruits, vegetables, and meat to eat.  He put a treadmill in the basement for Teal to use.  He bought for her some new undies, dresses, earrings, and brownish dark red lipstick which suited her color.  He had Teal wear her hair in either a single braid, or tied up in a tight bun, so that he could admire her long skinny neck.

Soon, Teal put on 5-10 lbs of weight, and had a much fuller, plumper, appetizing, and enjoyable tail.  Teal became much better company, and they lived happily ever after.
