Southwest North Dakota Gun Dealer Illegally Uses Buyers’ Personal Information

About one month ago, the manager of a store that sells guns in southwest North Dakota told me that he had gone into his store’s paper work files of gun buyers, looked at the personal information provided by a gun buyer on their NICS form, and performed an internet search of this person on social media.

The reason why this store manager told me this, was because he did not know that this was very illegal, and strictly prohibited conduct of a licensed FFL gun dealer. Below is the Federal Government Form that FFL gun dealers and their employees must sign:

Federal Firearms Licensee (FFL) Officer/Employee
Acknowledgment of Responsibilities
under the
National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS)

Being an officer or employee of the following named Federal Firearms Licensee (FFL):

For those of you who do not purchase or own firearms, what I am writing probably does not matter to you. For those of you who do purchase and own firearms, many of you are probably leery of providing a record of your firearm purchase to the Federal Government, because it could eventually lead to more Federal Government regulation, rules, and laws concerning this firearm.

Many people who purchase and own firearms believe that the original and complete wording of the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, where it says, “A well regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”, that this means that there should not be any interference, obstruction, blocking, delays of people lawfully obtaining firearms, but the NICS process is interference, obstruction, blocking, and delays.

If people want to purchase a firearm from an FFL gun store, they are required to fill out the NICS paperwork, which includes Full Name, Date of Birth, Social Security Number, Drivers License Number, Current Home Address, Phone Number, and I believe Place Of Birth. This personal information is usually transmitted to the NICS center via a telephone call from the FFL gun store employee while the gun buyer is present.

The purpose of the NICS process, was to quickly determine if the gun buyer is legally prohibited from purchasing a firearm. The most common reason for a person to be legally prohibited from owning a firearm is previous conviction of a felony.

From the Federal Government Form for FFL gun stores that I included a copy of above, it states that the FFL gun store employees must read and sign that: “I further acknowledge my legal obligation to the NICS, my employing FFL, and affected firearms transferees to safeguard all NICS-related information to which I may be exposed and to protect it from unauthorized use or disclosure.”

The manager of this FFL gun store in southwest North Dakota, telling me that he went into the file of a gun buyer, after their NICS had been called in, after they had left the store, to collect their full name, date of birth, and current address to go look them up on social media to satisfy their personal curiosity, is exactly the Unauthorized Use that is never supposed to happen.

To put this another way, what if you went to a hospital for medical treatment, and you supplied your name, date of birth, social security number, current address, and other personal information as required. Hospital staff who receive this personal information are not supposed to go look the patient up on Facebook, Myspace, LinkedIn, Realtor.com, to find out where they work, who they are in a relationship with, how much money they make, what kind of house they live in, to satisfy their own personal curiosity. The same principle would apply to people who work at a Bank who have access to your personal information.

I notified the two owners of this FFL gun store by e-mail, including a copy of the Federal
Government Form for FFL gun stores that prohibits unauthorized use of the NICS personal information provided by gun buyers, but they did not respond.

Because I received no response from the owners of this southwest North Dakota gun store, the following day I called the ATF in Fargo that handles the licensing and regulation of firearms dealers in North Dakota.

To me, this is just another example of ignorance and corruption in North Dakota. The manager of this gun store, not only did he not know that it is illegal to use gun buyers’ personal information for his own entertainment, enjoyment, and curiosity, he doesn’t see this as unethical or inappropriate. Neither do the two owners of this gun store.

A Bigfoot Story That You Need To Hear About Killing Bigfoot

Mostly because of the internet, everyone on Earth now has had the chance to look at Bigfoot photographs and videos, and read or listen to Bigfoot encounter stories. The 1967 Patterson-Gimlin film still remains as one of the best videos. Here is a short stabilized version of this video that removes the video camera shake:

In 1995, a website called the “Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization” a.k.a. “BFRO” was created to allow people to report their Bigfoot sighting, which would be added to a database for public viewing. For twenty years, I thought that the BFRO was a giant leap forward, until some researchers came to the conclusion that the BFRO was a U.S. Government front operation.

If you read Bigfoot reports, encounters, and sightings for more than twenty years like I have, you would have come across reports where Bigfoot were becoming either overly friendly, losing their fear of people, aggressive towards people, or murderous towards people. It appears that the role of the BFRO organization was to create a publicly well-known and trusted reporting center where people would contact them to report Bigfoot sightings, encounters, or bodies.

In this article, with the two videos below, I want to try to show you that the U.S. Government is very interested to learn immediately of Bigfoot sightings, encounters, shootings, fatalities, or Bigfoot bodies, so that they can begin the cover-up ASAP if necessary.

Skeptics often ask, if there was or is a Bigfoot, why hasn’t one ever been killed or captured? The truth is, going back to the 1800s, there have been many reports of Bigfoot being captured, shot, or found dead. Just one recent example, when Mount Saint Helens erupted in 1980, and forest fires occurred, many firefighters and emergency personnel witnesses injured or dead Bigfoot on Mount St. Helen. Here is just one video about this, but there are better reports online from actual witnesses:

What is believed by myself and others, is that if enough people call-in or submit a report to the BFRO for Bigfoot sightings or encounters in a specific geographical area, the BFRO probably contacts or shares this information with a special U.S. Government office, which employs teams of experienced predator removal agents to deal with “problem” Bigfoot.

I am going to include a story below, which describes how these U.S. Government predator removal teams get called in. I am going to begin this video from the YouTube channel “Dixie Cryptid” at the 22:22 time stamp, so that you can hear this particular story. The reason why I want you to hear this story, is because this is a very, very typical way that Bigfoot have been dealt with for the past seventy years, by predator removal teams:

I will be one of the first people to tell you that Cameron who created the “Dixie Cryptid” YouTube channel, will sometimes read listener submitted stories that sound like they could be fake, but this story doesn’t sound like one of the fake ones. Even Steve Isdahl with the YouTube Channel “HowToHunt” occasionally will read a story that we viewers will comment about it sounding fake.

The researchers and website creators get truthful honest information sent to them, along with misinformation from pranksters and hoaxers. You shouldn’t just take the Mount St. Helens video and this Dixie Cryptid video shown above as definitive proof, you should continue to look for other sources of information on this subject.

Here is a very, very hard to find resource that contains roughly one hundred historical actual newspaper articles about Bigfoot from the 1800s and 1900s:


North Dakotans Have Just A Few More Days To Calmly Purchase Their Supplies

On November 12, nine days ago, I wrote a blog post article explaining to North Dakotans that they needed to start buying emergency supplies due to coming civil unrest and corona virus lock downs. There was no need to panic, they just needed to begin buying extra supplies now.

Today, November 21, I read a Reuters news article that documented actual panic buying and shortages in California, New York, Arizona, and Washington. In these states, supposedly due to increasingly severe corona virus restrictions, stores like Walmart, Costco, Target, and Kroger have either sold out or experienced shortages of toilet paper, paper towels, cleaning supplies, Lysol wipes, and spam. You can read this article for yourself: https://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-coronavirus-toiletpaper/panic-buying-of-toilet-paper-hits-u-s-stores-again-with-new-pandemic-restrictions-idUSKBN2802W3

People in North Dakota need to realize, that when this type of behavior occurs on the west coast and the east coast, that it takes anywhere from several days to a couple of weeks to reach states like ND, SD, and WY.

It doesn’t matter that North Dakota is very different from California or New York, it’s the nature of people in North Dakota to read, hear, or see the news and what is happening elsewhere, to take it all in, to process the information, deliberate, and then come to many of the same conclusions as the people in California and New York came to, that no one wants to be without necessities during a time of emergencies.

There is no need for North Dakotans to begin panic-buying, however, North Dakotans do need to pay attention now to making sure that they have enough supplies of necessities, because pretty soon they will be more difficult to obtain.

I Had To Take Hannah To The Veterinarian This Morning

In yesterday’s blog post article, titled “Is There Something Wrong With Purina Dry Cat Food?”, I was complaining that after buying Purina Kitten Chow for my seven month old cat named Hannah Lee Duggan, my cat wouldn’t eat anything for the past three days. My cat wouldn’t eat the Purina dry cat food, another brand of dry cat food, sliced turkey, or sliced ham.

This was very troubling and hard to believe, because this cat named Hannah, she was a stray cat that I had been feeding at the job site where I work for the past five months. Hannah, her brothers, her mother, and her father were voracious eaters. They were always very eager to get whatever food was put out for them.

About three weeks ago, I caught Hannah Lee Duggan and took her home with me, because I thought that I was going to save her from something bad happening to her. One by one, her three brothers had disappeared, never to be seen again. Myself and my co-workers, we didn’t know if an owl, hawk, or coyote was getting them.

When I got Hannah home, I kept her inside the house and I wouldn’t let her outside because I didn’t want something to happen to her, she is still a small cat. Within a couple of days, Hannah would come and sit beside me on the sofa. She liked to be petted, scratched, and held. She liked to sleep beside me, on top of me, or down beside my feet.

For the first two weeks of having Hannah at my house, I had to clean her litter box about twice per day, because she pooped and urinated so much. After she hadn’t eaten for the past three days, the amount of feces in her litter box dropped off significantly.

This morning was the fourth day that Hannah had not eaten. When I checked her litter box, not only was there not any feces, there were not any litter clumps from urination. Hannah had quit drinking water too. For the past week Hannah’s disposition has been very pleasant and affectionate, though she has lost some weight.

When I called the veterinary clinic in Dickinson this morning at 8:30 a.m., luckily I was able to get an emergency appointment for Hannah at 10:00 a.m. this morning. I hated to have to catch Hannah and fight her to get her into her cat carrier, she had been in such a pleasant and affectionate mood all this week. She didn’t understand why I was trying to catch her and take her somewhere, she thought that this was her home now.

The vet check-in went smoothly. Pretty soon we were taken to an examination room. The young veterinarian woman was able to take Hannah out of her cat carrier, hold her, handle her, examine her, and do a blood draw without Hannah panicking and struggling too much. This was surprising to me, I had warned this young veterinarian that Hannah had been a stray feral cat.

From the physical examination of Hannah, feeling her belly and organs, taking her temperature, taking her heart rate, examining her eyes, ears, mouth, and throat, the vet could not find anything wrong. The vet said that Hannah looked and acted healthy. I had to wait about twenty minutes for the results of Hannah’s blood test.

It turned out that Hannah tested negative for Feline FIV and everything else that they tested her for. When the veterinarian technician began talking about possible “hospitalization”, then possibly “surgery”, I was beginning to picture a $2,000-$3,000 vet bill. I was getting ready to have to explain to them again that this was a stray feral cat that I had taken home with me from a job site, you people are getting the wrong idea.

I didn’t want to leave Hannah at the vet for “hospitalization”, because I couldn’t see spending $100 per day or more for keeping her in a cage where she would be frightened, confused, and probably be even less likely to want to eat anything. I explained to the vet technician, and then to the veterinarian that I didn’t want to leave Hannah, she would not understand, she would think that I was abandoning her, she thought that she had had a new permanent home with me.

The veterinarian said that if Hannah did not eat anything by Monday morning, that I would need to bring her back. She would probably have to be hospitalized for them to try to get her to eat. Then if she didn’t eat, she might have to have surgery.

I asked how much did this hospitalization cost? The veterinarian said $38 per day, which I was relieved to hear. I thought that they were going to try to charge me $100-$150 per day. The veterinarian said that most cats do well with their stay at the hospital. I don’t know, I thought that Hannah would feel that I was abandoning her and not ever coming back, when she thought that she had a new permanent home with me.

The veterinarian gave me five cans of Science Diet cat food, which is supposed to be a better and more appetizing cat food. The total bill for this visit was $275, which I thought was fair.

I can’t believe this though, this is ridiculous. I took a stray feral cat home with me, that just as easily could have stayed right where it was at the job site. Now, a few weeks later, this cat is needing emergency vet visits, and possibly hospitalization and surgery, WTF? I don’t know if I will pay for any surgery. I can see paying for a week of hospitalization, but how much will a surgery cost? Is this cat going to have continuing health problems?

Update 11/21/20:  When I got Hannah home from the veterinarian on Friday at noon, I opened a can of the salmon Science Diet cat food that the vet had given me.  Hannah did not eat this salmon Science Diet cat food when I put it out for her, nor later that evening, nor that night.

At about 7:00 p.m. I put a small piece of cooked chicken breast out for Hannah, but she did not eat it then, nor later that night.

At about 8:00 p.m. I put a small piece of raw beef out for Hannah, and she ate this small piece at about 11:00 p.m.  So I put out five more small pieces of raw beef out at 12:00 a.m., and Hannah ate them.

Between 6:00 p.m. and 12:00 a.m. I saw that Hannah had consumed about 1/3 of a bowl of water.

At 6:00 a.m. I put out six small pieces of raw beef, and Hannah ate them within about 1/2 hour.  At 7:00 a.m. I put out another seven small pieces of raw beef, and Hannah ate them within about 1/2 hour.

At 9:00 a.m. I put out eight small pieces of raw beef, and at 5:00 p.m. Hannah ate these eight small pieces, plus another four small pieces that I gave her while she was eating.

At 7:00 p.m. Hannah ate another eight small pieces of raw beef.

Hannah has been in a good mood all week.  She is behaving well and is acting very friendly.  She does not appear to be in pain or feel sick.  The only indication that she was sick, was that she went for four days without eating anything.  Her bowel movements and her urination became much smaller and infrequent.

I am beginning to believe that Hannah has some kind of intestinal blockage, that makes her not feel like eating, and makes her bowel movements very small and infrequent.  I don’t know if she has a hair ball, swallowed some foreign object, or if the Purina Kitten Chow plugged her up.  She is not coughing or throwing up.

I don’t know if Hannah is going to get better on her own or not.  I don’t want to take her to the veterinarian hospital because I think that she will be less likely to eat there and poop there, due to being confused and frightened.

Update 11/23/20:  By Monday Hannah was eating, drinking, pooping, and urinating normally.  On Sunday she passed a couple of very hard, dark stool, with a small piece of fiber, like a carpet fiber in them.

I am not sorry that I took Hannah to the veterinarian, it’s probably better to err on the side of caution, or find out sooner rather than later if your pet has something wrong with it.  However, I am glad that I held off on the hospitalization and surgery, especially for a cat that was behaving fairly normal, other than not eating.

Is There Something Wrong With Purina Dry Cat Food?

This article heading photograph shows a 16 lb bag of Purina Kit & Kaboodle dry cat food, and a 3 lb bag of Purina Kitten Chow dry cat food. The stray feral cats that I feed at work and the kitten that I brought home will not eat either of these Purina dry cat foods.

I am suspicious and angry about what this Purina dry cat food contains. For more than the past fifty years Purina has been making dog food and cat food. Purina has many years of experience and research in making pet food. What did Purina do with this dry cat food, to make cats refuse to eat it?

My suspicion is, that Purina knows very well what food ingredients pets like and what they don’t like, what are expensive ingredients and what are inexpensive ingredients, and they have tried to push the limits on including the maximum amount of inexpensive ingredients to try to maximize their profits.

To put it another way, how could Purina be in the dog food and cat food business for more than fifty years, spending millions on research, and produce cat food that cats will not eat, not even stray feral cats that are starving and desperate for something to eat? How could Purina do that, and why would they do that?

My opinion is, that if the corporate directors of Purina want to try to see if they can include pet food ingredients that animals will not even eat, then I can never trust the Purina pet food company.

North Dakotans Need To Begin Preparing For Nationwide Civil Unrest And Shortages

Sometimes I wish that I could shake and slap every North Dakotan awake, for their own good.  No one else is going to tell them what I am about to tell them, so it must not be true, how could it be true?

Most North Dakotans are in-tune with what North Dakota is and is not, what it has and it doesn’t have.  The fact that there are less than 800,000 people in the entire state, that people are spread out over a large area, that there are very few large cities in North Dakota.  That’s good that North Dakotans understand themselves, more than sixty percent of them voted for Donald Trump, recognizing how disastrous Joe Biden would be for North Dakota as President.

But thirty percent of North Dakotans were and are too stupid to even realize that Joe Biden whose hands shake uncontrollably with tremors, who often speaks as if he has lost his mind, who is suffering from advanced stages of dementia, who has said that he will ban hydraulic fracturing to extract oil, and that he will block the construction of oil pipelines, they voted for Joe Biden to be the next President, even though this will be devastating to North Dakota.

Maybe this message isn’t for those thirty percent who are so stupid that they voted for Joe Biden.  My belief is that many of the Joe Biden voters in North Dakota get their pay check from the government, and therefore think that they will be spared if the economy crashes.  Why else would they vote the way that they did?

The warning that I am going to give and explain to North Dakotans, isn’t really about what is going to happen in North Dakota at first, it’s about what is going to happen to the rest of the country first.

Whether Joe Biden is sworn in as President or not, there is probably going to be rioting and looting in the large cities on the west coast and the east coast, and other large liberal cities, cities like:  Los Angeles, Portland, Seattle, Chicago, Albuquerque, Denver, St. Louis, Minneapolis, New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Atlanta.

The reason for the rioting and looting, whether Joe Biden is sworn in as President or not, is that the masses of poor, uneducated, miserable people crowded together in the big cities are tired of being poor and having no opportunities.  They want more, they want better conditions, they want free health care, and access to free money, and they have been taught by the media and the Democrats that the way to get anything, is to riot, loot, burn their city, cause violence, and to disrupt their city in order to get media attention and efforts to pay them off.

At this time, the widespread belief in rioting, looting, burning, violence, and disruption is being reinforced by main stream media, and Democrats, in that the City Councils, Mayors, and Governors do nothing to stop this, they won’t even call it what it is, and refer to this behavior as “demonstrations” or “protests”.  The main stream media and Democrats are supporting this type of disruption and chaos, because it aids and coincides with their plans.

Here is the point that I want North Dakotans to understand, as far as the main stream media, the Democrats, and the millions of poor city-dwellers are concerned, they don’t want the conservative mid-western U.S. states to merely watch the riots, looting, burning, violence, and disruption on TV, they want the mid-west states to suffer from it.

The urbanites have realized that rioting, looting, burning, violence, and disruption gets them attention and causes efforts to be made to pacify them, but in order to really get something they are going to have to affect more people.  They are going to have to disrupt interstate travel, interstate and nationwide distribution, manufacturing, nationwide infrastructure and utilities, international shipping, and cause resources to be redirected to them.

The reason why the main stream media and the Democrats have brought these millions of poor city-dwellers to this type of thinking and behavior, is that the liberal media and the Democrats want to bring about a Revolution.  There must first be a Revolution, and then a response, in order to transform the United States into a different type of country, to Socialism.

If there can be enough chaos and disruption in the large liberal cities to slow down international shipping to ports and airports of strategic resources, components, parts, electronics, medication; a disruption in manufacturing; an interruption in the nationwide distribution of food, medication, and necessities; an interference with telecommunications, energy distribution, and water distribution, all of these things would affect the conservative mid-west states, which would then have to accept the Federal Government’s “emergency measures”.

The first time I heard the expression, “Don’t let a crisis go to waste”, I believe that it came from President Barack Obama’s Chief Of Staff Rahm Emanuel.  Barack Obama and Rahm Emanuel were heavily involved in Chicago politics, and there is evidence that they both were followers of Chicago activist Saul Alinsky who wrote  Rules for Radicals: A Pragmatic Primer (1971), a guide to organizing and directing poor city dwellers during a conflict.  I believe that the Democrats went from “Not letting a crisis go to waste”, to “Creating a crisis, that they could then use to achieve their political goals”, which is exactly what the Communists did.

The take-away that I want North Dakotans to get from this article, is that the Democrats will soon use the unhappiness and anger of the millions of poor city-dwellers to allow them and encourage them to cause disruptions which will affect the whole U.S. with shortages of one kind or another.  Increasingly severe corona virus lock downs could even be one of the tactics that the Democrats will use to create shortages.

So, I strongly recommend that North Dakotans begin steadily building up their personal home supplies of necessities that they will need if there are shortages:  bottled water; batteries; storable food like canned goods and dry goods; pet food; medication; paper towels; toilet paper; firearms & ammunition; emergency cash; things of value to use for trade; very warm clothing in case of power outages.  Come up with your own list of things that you might need.

Remember, the Democrat tactic now will be to create a crisis, in order to implement Federal Government “emergency measures”, which will be an attempt to change the U.S. more towards Socialism.

Update 11/16/20: I expected to have difficulty in convincing North Dakotans that they have something to worry about, that the rest of the U.S. and especially the densely populated areas would be experiencing such calamity and shortages that people in places like Dickinson would need to start building up their preparedness supplies.

Today I saw a CNN news article with photos, showing a line of 1,000 cars waiting to get food at a food bank in Texas.  Please look at these photos and read the article.  In a single day 25,000 people went through this line to receive food assistance.  40% of these people were using a food bank for their first time.  If you can’t tell what is going to happen in the rest of the country from this, there is nothing that will make you understand. https://amp.cnn.com/cnn/2020/11/15/us/dallas-texas-food-bank-coronavirus/index.html

I Caught Hannah Lee Duggan And Took Her Home With Me

At the industrial job site where I work in North Dakota, most of my coworkers like the feral cats that hang around. They each have their own unique personality, idiosyncracies, and behaviors that we observe. How they fit in, socialize, and interact with other cats, other animals, and us.

When the site is not busy, we are able to put food out for the cats. We don’t want the cats hanging around when the site is busy, because we don’t want them to get run over by vehicles, tractor trucks, or heavy equipment.

The male cats seem to be the most wary of people, always acting like they think that someone is going to do something to them. Which is good, because we might have some oddball worker from another company who might do something mean to a cat, especially a feral cat.

The female cats seem to be more ready to accept food from us, and wanting for us to give them something to eat, whereas the male cats try to act like they don’t need our food. This all changes in the winter though when there is less natural prey for the cats and it becomes, very, very cold.

The smallest female cat at the site, is actually the most dominant cat. She does not hesitate to chase after and attack any other cat that is not doing what it is supposed to be doing, in her opinion. She is kind of like Judge Judy, she is always putting the other cats in their place.

In February or March of 2020, we noticed that the Judge Judy cat was becoming fatter and fatter, it became obvious that she was pregnant. We were glad that this happened when it did, because she would be able to give birth when it got warmer in May.

One or two of my coworkers asked me to try to find out when and where this Judge Judy cat had her kittens, because they wanted to take one of them home with them. When this cat became much, much smaller suddenly, and we knew that she must have had her kittens, she hid them so well, that we never could find them.

It wasn’t until late June, quite a long time to keep kittens hidden, that the mother cat brought her kittens out into the open. They appeared to be about six to eight weeks old. Several times each day, we saw this mother cat bring mice, other small rodents, and birds back to her kittens. She was a very good hunter. There were four kittens.

In late July, the mother cat was down to three kittens. We don’t know what happened to the fourth kitten. It could have been an owl, a hawk, or a coyote that killed her other kitten. At least her other kittens were getting bigger, so they would be less likely to be carried away by an owl or a hawk. Here is a photo of the three kittens at this time:

In the photograph above, the grey and white kittens were male, and the tan and white kitten was female. It became obvious for a number of reason who the father was. Each kitten was a mix between the father and mother cat, as you can see from this photo:

As winter was approaching, I was concerned about what was going to happen to these cats. At this job site, it gets down to -40 degrees Fahrenheit in the winter. To be clear, I am talking about 40 degrees below zero degrees, and that’s not even including the wind-chill effect.

I thought about it, and I believed that if I could get some of these feral cats to come and sit inside of the office trailer to warm up when I was at work, that it might help them to not be under stress from the cold all the time.

In early October, it was already getting down to 7 degrees Fahrenheit. So I began tricking the kittens into the office trailer, by putting food just inside the door, then closing the door behind them. I even tricked the mother cat into the office trailer a couple of times. I didn’t listen to their complaints, and eventually they would calm down, and go sit down:

The female kitten, I named “Hannah Lee Duggan”, after the YouTuber Hannah Lee Duggan because their markings were exactly the same, white and tan.

The bad thing about inviting/trapping Hannah Lee Duggan inside of the office trailer, was that she pooped on the floor. You had to watch her the whole time. In order to not have to keep track of her, I picked her up to put her in a chair, and she pooped all over.

One day after having a few days off from work, when I returned to work, the two male kittens were nowhere to be found. This was highly unusual because each of the kittens always stayed together and played together throughout the day. At first, I thought that either a site worker did something to them, or an animal had gotten them. But after a few days of asking around if anyone had seen them, it became to appear more likely that these two male kittens had climbed up inside someone’s car engine, and had been driven away to who knows where.

This was very sad that the mother Judge Judy cat had put so much work into hiding, feeding, and raising these kittens, and now there was only one that had survived, the female kitten Hannah Lee Duggan.

I didn’t know how I was going to take Hannah Lee Duggan back to my house, because she kept shitting everywhere. I brought a cat litter box and cat litter to the office trailer to see if Hannah Lee Duggan would use the litter box, and she did. The next day I was going to bring in a cat carrier and catch Hannah Lee Duggan and take her home with me. Also, there was a fairly large gash on Hannah’s side, that I didn’t know what it was from, it may have been an owl or a hawk had tried to carry her away.

The following day, I had Hannah Lee Duggan inside of the office trailer with me. I kept her inside because I wanted to be able to grab her when I got ready to leave for the day. A couple of times during the day she had gone into the open cat carrier by herself, but I didn’t want to lock her in it too early, so that she could use the litter box.

Twenty minutes before I had to leave for home, was when I grabbed Hannah Lee Duggan to stuff her inside of the cat carrier. She didn’t want to go in, and she began shitting everywhere, on my pants, on my shoes, everywhere. I was about ready to give up, I didn’t need this aggravation, so in anger I grabbed her very forcefully with heavy gloves on, and shoved her ass inside the cat carrier no matter how much she protested. Once she was in, she didn’t have much to say.

Hannah did not have much to say on the nearly one hour drive home. I had already prepared another cat litter box with litter in the living room of my house, and I put the cat carrier with Hannah in it, right in front of the litter box for a few minutes before I let her out of the cat carrier.

She stepped out of the cat carrier like she wasn’t upset, stretched, and then she walked over to and under the sofa. I let her stay under the sofa for several hours without bothering her. Then I tried to get her to come out, because if you let cats get into the habit of hiding under furniture, that is what they will do for the rest of her life.

When I got Hannah to come out from under the sofa, she walked around normal for a few minutes, then she found something else to go hide under. I would only let her stay under something for a few hours, before I would try to get her to come out. I saw that she was using the litter box. She was using the litter box so much, that I had to clean the litter box at least twice per day.

After a few days of clean water and normal cat food, Hannah’s digestive problems seemed to clear up. Everything was a first, grabbing her and putting her on the sofa, was the first time that she had ever been on a sofa. Scratching her head, her neck, and her chin was the first time that anyone had ever scratched her.

Soon, Hannah realized that she liked being petted and scratched, and she was always coming over to me wanting to be petted and scratched. Then, she realized that she liked being held, and that she would much rather sleep beside me, or on top of me.

Now, Hannah is sometimes a nuisance, because she persistently wants to climb on top of me, kiss me on the mouth, and wedge herself up under my chin, kneading her needle-like claws into my neck.

This is quite a change for Hannah, not having to be afraid of coyotes, owls, and hawks trying to catch her, not being out in the wind, the rain, the snow, and the cold. She is behaving fairly well, not tearing anything up yet. I might try to catch her mother, the Judge Judy cat, we will see.

What Does The 2020 Presidential Election Mean To People In Western North Dakota

In yesterday’s blog post article, I explained that there is an appeal to Communism and Socialism, in that it promises a more equitable distribution of wealth and resources.  However, the mechanisms by which Communism and Socialism redistributes wealth and resources is by totalitarian dictatorships, with brutality, no freedom, no choice, no alternatives.

I believe that the poor urban city-dwellers in places like Los Angeles, Portland, Seattle, Chicago, Detroit, Philadelphia, and Baltimore looked forward to getting free health care, child care, housing, utilities, food, and higher education, provided by the government, that is why they voted for Joe Biden.  But don’t these people know, that when the government takes everything from the rich and upper-middle-class, the government takes over all businesses, provides everything for everyone, that life for everyone in the U.S. will become the same as it is in Russia, China, Cuba, or Venezuela.  Do people in the U.S. really want to begin living like the people in China?

In North Dakota, like most of the sparsely populated, agricultural mid-western states, the majority of people voted for Donald Trump.  The majority of people in the mid-western states want to continue living the way that they have been living, with as little government intervention and interference as possible.  A smaller Federal government and less Federal income taxes would be preferable, the opposite of the feeling of the urbanites on the west coast and the east coast.

If Joe Biden is elected President, and it looks like this could happen, he has said in the past that he would like to eliminate hydraulic fracturing as a means to produce oil wells.  In North Dakota, it wasn’t until the invention and use of hydraulic fracturing in the early 2000s that North Dakota oil could be extracted profitably.

Due to the current World oversupply of oil and oil market manipulation to cause the price of oil to remain at $40 per barrel, North Dakota oil can not be produced profitably at this time.  Since 2015 when the price of oil dropped, the number of oil drill rigs operating in North Dakota has gone from 190 down to 10 operating drill rigs currently.

It is estimated that each operating drill rig in North Dakota creates 100 direct and associated jobs.  190 operating drill rigs in 2015 means 19,000 jobs were created, whereas 10 operating drill rigs currently means at least 18,000 jobs were lost.  This drill rig count has everything to do with the price of oil, and whether oil can be produced profitably or not.  North Dakota oil can not be produced profitably at all without hydraulic fracturing.

For the oil producing states of Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wyoming, not only will these mid-western states not have operating drill rigs if hydraulic fracturing is banned, energy companies, oil companies, and oil-field service companies will begin moth-balling their facilities, which would include operations offices, equipment yards, truck fleets, pipe-lines, and refineries.

How could the Marathon owned refineries in Mandan and Dickinson, North Dakota refine oil if their regionally produced oil extracted by fracturing is no longer available?

Another casualty of the Joe Biden Presidency will be oil pipelines.  Again, and again, and again liberal activists and liberal judges have delayed the construction of such pipelines as the Trans Canada Keystone XL pipeline, and interfered with the operation of completed pipelines such as the Dakota Access Pipeline.  Will any private company risk the huge investment to construct or operate any oil pipeline if the President himself Joe Biden is likely to assist the road blocks, legal battles, and impossible permitting processes?

I don’t think that North Dakotans have thought this through, because they didn’t have to, Donald Trump was most likely going to win re-election.  Right now, local economies in western North Dakota are treading water, not really advancing, but trying to stay afloat.  I don’t think that anyone could have predicted the terrible multiple affects a Joe Biden Presidency would have on North Dakota.

It’s not just that North Dakota oil can’t be produced profitably without hydraulic fracturing, the existing infrastructure such as the DAPL oil pipelines, Johnson’s Corner oil storage terminals, the Petro Hunt Killdeer refinery, Marathon Mandan refinery, and Marathon Dickinson refinery are relying on this regional oil supply and oil pipelines.

The Most Important Election In The History Of The World

This November 3, 2020 Presidential Election is the most important election in the history of the World.  The whole history of mankind, our evolution, experiences, development, discoveries, knowledge, technology, wars, exploration, and expansion has gotten us here to where we are now.  Will we be able to go any further, to continue on, or is this as far as we will go?

The United States for the past two hundred years has been the most free, the most open to discovery, innovation, expansion, invention, prosperity, and individual success.  This Republic/Democracy combined with Capitalism, the U.S. Constitution, and the Bill of Rights has allowed more individual freedom, more opportunity for every individual, and more equality for every individual than at any time in history, anywhere.

I have lived long enough, experienced enough, read, learned, and became educated enough, to know that Communism and Socialism does not work.  There is an appeal to Communism and Socialism, that the World’s resources can and should be shared more equally.  However the mechanisms by which Communism and Socialism must seize and redistribute resources, are totalitarian governments with brutality, intolerance, injustice, and inhumanity.

Ever since the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia in 1917, Communism and Socialism have spread to various countries:  Russia, China, East Germany, Cuba, and Venezuela.  Very soon after the establishment of Communism in Russia and the confiscation of private farms, which were turned into cooperatives, there was widespread famine.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russian_famine_of_1921%E2%80%9322

Under Communism, everyone was supposed to work equally, and receive an equal share.  However, this inspired the newly liberated Russian populace to perform as little work as possible, since there was no incentive to do more.  Plus, what was produced by some, was confiscated for use elsewhere.  This resulted in shortages of food, clothing, necessities, tools, equipment, and supplies, because there was no motivation or reward for people to produce anything or work hard.

In Russia, China, East Germany, and Cuba, there was no freedom of speech, freedom of the press, or freedom of religion, because once Communism was installed, and the government was responsible for everything, there could no longer be any dissension, disobedience, criticism, or disagreement with Communism and the government.

This Communism worked so well in Russia, China, and East Germany, that guards with automatic weapons would shoot the citizens as they tried to climb over the barbed-wire fences to escape to a Western country.

The millions and millions of low-income city-dwellers who inhabit places like Los Angeles, Portland, Seattle, Chicago, Denver, Detroit, Philadelphia, and Baltimore, they look forward to the day when they have free health care, day care, housing, utilities, food, and higher education provided for them by the government.  So they voted for Joe Biden.

However, once the government is in complete control of providing health care, day care, housing, utilities, food, and higher education, people will not be permitted to disagree with the government.  It will be mandatory for people to do what the government tells them to do, as the government is responsible for the well-being of everyone, people will not be permitted to go against and disrupt the government system that provides everything to everyone.

Initially, all of the money that will be required to pay for health care, day care, housing, utilities, food, and higher education, will be paid for by taxes on the rich, upper-middle-class, and middle-class.  But once the rich, upper-middle-class, and middle-class don’t have any more money to pay these taxes, the government will confiscate their private property.

Once the private property and companies of the rich, upper-middle-class, and middle-class are confiscated, and owned by the government, who will take over and run these companies, farms, mines, and manufacturing?  The government will run these companies, a few educated people will be administrators, a few brutes will be managers, and all you urban city-dwellers who voted for Joe Biden will be working on farms, in mines, and manufacturing for slave-wages.

Attention all you city-dwellers!, when the government provides everything for you, taxes then confiscates the property and companies once owned by the rich and upper-middle-class, how do you think the government is going to continue to supply you with food, clothing, and utilities?  You people are going to have to work all day on farms, in coal mines, in manufacturing plants.  How else is everyone going to be provided with everything?  Do you think that you will have any choice or say once all of you are provided for by the government?

All of you people in Los Angeles, Portland, Seattle, Chicago, Denver, Detroit, Philadelphia, and Baltimore, once the government begins providing you with everything, your health care, child care, housing, utilities, food, and higher education, why do you think that your life will be any different than the people in Russia and China?

A Role Model For Men In Dickinson, Besides Ken Zander And The Man Of La Mancha

In recent blog posts I have written about Stark County Commissioner Ken Zander, as I think that he serves as an inspiration and role model for men in Dickinson.  By his own example, Ken Zander has shown how to live life to its fullest, to go after what you want, that winners never quit, and quitters never win.

Now it is time to give men in Dickinson, an even more powerful example of how they should conduct themselves and live their lives.  You see, men must believe in themselves, they must believe in what they are doing, they must have conviction.

I look around in Dickinson, and I see too many men acting like lap dogs.  I ask you, what good is a lap dog as a leader?  What good is a lap dog when there is work to be done?  What good is a lap dog when there is danger lurking?

In this example of a man that I will give shortly, this is how men in Dickinson should act, whether they are a bar owner, a restaurant owner, a barber, the manager of a car dealer service department, the Mayor, the Chief of Police, or the Sheriff.  You must believe in what you are doing, you must have conviction!

Here, the actor Klaus Kinski portraying Lope de Aguirre, he keeps his head, his focus, his determination, when all of the others around him have given up, that is what makes him a man among men, and a leader of men.  He is fearless, courageous, determined, and resolute.  He believes in himself, and in what he is doing:

Stark County Commissioner Ken Zander Is The Man Of La Mancha

A couple of days ago I read another Dickinson Press newspaper article about Stark County Commissioner Ken Zander and his alleged acts of sexual harassment. Though an earlier newspaper article listed the accusations against him, and reported that the investigation concluded that he was not guilty of sexual harassment, this follow-up newspaper article was about a subsequent County Commission meeting where his accuser and her attorney spoke publicly.

I was thinking to myself, that this would make a very good musical or opera. For ages, Greek tragedies, Italian operas, and modern musicals have been about love, romance, debauchery, unrequited love, and public persecutions. This Ken Zander story has every element of a good musical or opera.

I began thinking about how I would write, direct, script, cast, and choreograph this story as a musical or opera. I could not help but begin reviewing in my mind, every musical, ballet, and opera that I had ever seen, to get some ideas on how to do this. I admire Ken Zander, and I would want someone who resembled him to play his part. Then I realized, “Ken Zander is The Man Of La Mancha, as played by Peter O’ Toole!”

As I began watching more movie clips from The Man Of La Mancha as played by Peter O’ Toole, I found what would serve as a good portrayal of Ken Zander’s romantic pursuit of Lisa Heiser, Stark County Parks Director, played by Sophia Loren:

I hope that these ideas will help to put this story and events into better historical perspective.

An Example Of How It Is Possible For Women To Be Logical

In the summer of 2012 I was working in an oil field in west Texas, right along the border of Mexico. In the town where I was staying, Crystal City, the population was probably about 80% Hispanic, and the inhabitants were more like Mexicans than anything else.

The family roots, customs, beliefs, traditions, practices, behaviors, and policies of the majority of the people in this area of west Texas was Mexican. They did not really like White people, and they often openly acted like they didn’t like White people.

In that oil field of west Texas, just like western North Dakota, there was and is a shortage of women. When I got off of work, the first thing that I would try to do was get something to eat. Soon, I found that the only restaurant in that region that I could reliably get decent food, was a restaurant/bar in Crystal City called Miguelito’s.

The restaurant/bar Miguelito’s in Crystal City usually had nice-looking, pleasant young waitresses, hostesses, and bar tenders. However, due to the Hispanic culture, traditions, and beliefs, it is considered very bad to trifle with the affection of nice young Hispanic girls, especially because they fall in love so quickly and completely. You should not seduce these nice young Hispanic girls unless you plan on marrying them.

After dinner, I would go back to where I lived and begin looking on the internet for women to meet, on sites such as PlentyOfFish. It should come as no surprise that there were very few women on internet dating sites out in the desert of west Texas.

It was truck drivers in Dickinson, North Dakota working in the oil field, that told me when there are no women on internet dating sites, go look on the website “Back Page” under the category “Escorts”. So, that is what I did.

At that time, 2012, before the U.S. Government shut down “Back Page”, there were some very nice looking escorts that advertised themselves. It often seemed too good to be true, like you would respond to a very nice-looking escort’s advertisement, but that is not the girl who would show up. It would be a hideous looking girl who showed up, or the police.

I began trying to look for advice on how to hire a prostitute or an escort, and I came upon a website titled, “Maggie McNeill, The Honest Courtesan”. This website had a tremendous amount of information, advice, and research on prostitutes and prostitution. The website owner had given herself the pseudonym “Maggie McNeill”.

Not only did I appreciate all of the information that “Maggie McNeill” had to offer, she was one of the best writers that I have ever read. Meaning not just amateur lay-person writers, but one of the best writers even among the most famous writers.

When I tried to find out the background of “Maggie McNeill”, I believe that she had a bachelor of arts in English, and a master’s in Library Science. She had been very ahead of her classmates in school, in New Orleans where she grew up and attended Catholic School.

After she graduated from college, she married a man who she met in college and she began working as a librarian. Her marriage did not last, and her husband caused her to be liable for about $90,000 in marital debt. In order to pay off this debt, she began working part-time as a stripper.

While working as a stripper, Maggie McNeill found out from other women that she could make much more money as a prostitute. She found out more about it, and began doing it. She liked it, and she liked the amount of money that she was making.

At some point, Maggie McNeill began writing about prostitution. I think that two of the main things that she wanted to accomplish were to set people straight on wanting to “rescue” prostitutes, and prostitutes being “victims”.

The gist of what Maggie McNeill wanted to explain, is that women have the right to chose whatever kind of work they wish to do, they don’t need “rescuing”, and women are not helpless “victims”. She was trying to explain that prostitution can be much higher paying than other types of work available to women, it allows women to be self-employed, it allows women to have flexibility in their schedule to enable them to do other things like go to school or take care of their children. https://maggiemcneill.wordpress.com/

When I left comments to Maggie McNeill’s articles asking questions, she replied promptly with helpful answers. I wrote to Maggie McNeill that she was a very good writer, and that I was surprised how logical and direct she was in her writing. She replied that women are some of the most logical writers there are, take Ayn Rand for instance.

Of course I had heard of Ayn Rand before, but I had never read about her, or read about who she was, or what she did. This was someone who I would have benefited from reading much earlier in my life. Ayn Rand was all about logic and “objectivism”. I am still no expert on Ayn Rand, it wasn’t until recently that I could really understand what she was talking about.

Here is a good introduction to Ayn Rand, a 1959 television interview with Mike Wallace:

The purpose of this blog post article is to point out to men and women, that women don’t have to behave like idiots, like they are all currently doing, it is possible for them to use logic and reasoning, so why don’t they?

Why Do Other People Do Well And Did Anyone Get Rich During The Oil Boom

A few years after I began working in the oil field, I tried to learn and understand who and why other people appeared to be making more money than me.

In my mid-twenties after I graduated with a bachelor of science in mechanical engineering, I began working for large civil construction and engineering companies, first as an estimator and AutoCAD designer, then as a superintendent, project manager, and engineer.  I began getting better and better positions, with increasing pay, and increasing responsibility as I could demonstrate more ability, knowledge, and experience.

First in Idaho in 2007-2010, then in North Dakota from 2011-present, I learned full-well that people with no education, do not like or appreciate people with an education.  People with no education are very uncomfortable, suspicious, mistrusting, and resentful of people with an education.

This resentment comes from such things as local high school students having jealousy of academically successful high school students who went off to college, hearing about how successful they were, while they went to work as construction labor after high school.  Even though they went from construction labor, to equipment operator, to manager of a construction or oil field company, they always held resentment for people who went off to college.

I can tell you from first-hand experience, the tremendous hatred and resentment that uneducated people in Idaho and North Dakota have for people with a college degree.  This saying that I came up with is completely true, “People in Idaho and North Dakota would rather hire someone who did four years in prison versus someone who did four years in college.”

This is extremely true in Dickinson, North Dakota.  More often than not, local employers hired their class-mates from high school as managers and foremen, even though they had no higher education or management training, but instead had multiple drug convictions, DUI, and assault convictions.  The people in Dickinson were more comfortable with people who were like themselves.

Therefore, before long, I determined that there was no rhyme or reason to why some people in Dickinson working in the oil field had higher paying jobs.  If anything, the dirtier and scummier a person was, the more likely they were to have a higher paying job in the oil field.  If there was any logic to this, the oil field does often rely on people to perform  short-term and long-term hazardous work without individuals questioning or thinking about what they are doing.

But I continued to wonder, was there anyone who did better for themselves by actual thought and planning in the oil industry?  When I worked in the oil field of west Texas for a short while, and when I returned to work in Dickinson in 2013, I realized more and more that even so-called engineers, technicians, and oil company men each only had just a small portion of knowledge.  It was surprising to me that no one working in the oil field, even middle and higher management, had a complete understanding of oil field work and processes.

Shortly after I began writing these blog post articles in 2015, a frustrated woman in Dickinson began leaving comments.  For reasons that will become clear,  I don’t want to use her real name, or even the nickname that I gave her back then, so I will refer to her now as “Nicole” because that’s easy to remember.

Over time, as Nicole left comments to my blog posts, I learned that “Nicole” and her husband “Tom” had moved to Dickinson several months prior.  For many years due to her husband Tom working in the oil industry, they had lived in many different oil field towns, but Dickinson was the worst.  The people in Dickinson were so unfriendly, uncooperative, and hostile, she could not believe it.

Nicole was communicating with me, because she saw that I had written some of the same observations that she had made herself, I had a similar point of view to hers, and she had no one else to talk to.  She had tried to make friends with local wives in Dickinson, but they would not speak to her, they didn’t want to have anything to do with her, probably because she was not like them.

When Nicole elaborated on some of her observations and experiences in Dickinson, she explained a little about herself, both deliberately and unintentionally sometimes.  She came from a middle-class or upper-middle-class normal family on the East coast.  She received at least a bachelor’s degree, probably a master’s degree, she said once that she had worked as an editor.

Like me, she came from such a relatively normal middle-class or upper-middle-class Protestant family, that she cared about what happened around her, and cared about what happened to other people.  Like me, she couldn’t understand why the local people in Dickinson were so hostile and hateful in general, and in particular the incredible greed of quadrupling the cost of housing to where many workers were forced to sleep in their cars at Walmart, the truck stop, Patterson Lake, wherever they could.

I liked Nicole, as there were no women like her anywhere around here.  She was like women that I had grown up with and gone to school with.  As I became more angry, crude, and vulgar in my blog posts, as a result of the prison-like environment that I was living and working in, Nicole didn’t want to communicate with me anymore.  I don’t blame her.  She consciously made up her mind that she wasn’t going to sink to this level, and she was done with me.

Out of curiosity, I used some of the information that she had unwittingly disclosed, to find out her real name, and then her husband’s real name.  Nicole and her husband Tom were exactly my age.  Her husband Tom, like me, he had also graduated with a degree in mechanical engineering, but from a slightly more prestigious and much larger university in California.

Unlike me, immediately after graduation, Tom went to work in the oil industry.  He obtained a very good entry-level engineering job with an oil company, and he steadily advanced.  He had been with the same oil company in various positions and locales for the past fifteen years.

I was envious of Tom.  He had the foresight or luck to get into the oil industry and stay there for his whole career.  Unlike anyone that I had ever met personally, he probably did have almost a complete knowledge and understanding of oil field work and processes.

See, this is what I had been wondering for several years, was there anyone who ever got ahead in the oil industry through foresight, effort, and planning?  One of the things that I learned, was that Tom and Nicole’s previous home in Colorado was an $800K home.  I looked through the real estate listing photographs on the internet from when they sold it, and it was one of the nicest homes that I have ever seen, both the home and the property.

What also came up, was that Tom and Nicole had a more than $1 million home in California that was held in a trust.  So to answer my question, “Did anyone ever become rich working in the oil field?”, the answer would appear to be yes.

After I did some calculating, I realized that Tom was probably not paid at a high enough level as an engineer in the positions that he had held, to become a multi-millionaire.  It was partly through he and his wife purchasing nice homes from an early age, holding  them, selling them for more when they had to relocate, buying increasingly expensive homes, and always experiencing increasing equity gains over time.  Nicole worked too.  And I believe that either or both of them had probably inherited property and money.

So, this answered both of my questions that I started out with, “Why do other people do well and did anyone become rich working in the oil field?”  It turns out that it was a matter of having a good education, foresight, sticking with your career, sticking with the same company, agreeing to relocate when required to do so, having a wife who is an effective partner, building equity in your home, being at the right place at the right time, and luck.

I was jealous and envious of Tom to an extent, mostly because of his career and financial success, but partly because of his relationship with Nicole.  But I knew that I could never keep a wife like Nicole, she would leave me, probably very quickly.  I would not have wanted to drag someone like Nicole through the life that I have led.

Currently I am doing O.K.  I have my home in North Dakota, my home in Idaho, and sixteen vehicles.  I am grateful that I do not have any ex-wives or children.  I do not want any wives or children in the future.

I wondered what happened to Tom and Nicole.  In about 2018, Tom and Nicole left Dickinson and they moved to Texas.  Tom started an oil company.  I don’t mean an oil service company, I mean an oil company, like Whiting Petroleum.

Do you know what this means?  The lifetime of money that Tom and Nicole had earned and saved, they used to start an oil company.  They acquired land leases, obtained the permits, hired oil drill rigs to drill, and began trying to own and produce oil wells.  It costs about $1 million to drill one oil well.  Millions go quickly.

In about 2019, many very large apparently successful oil companies began going bankrupt.  For instance, Whiting Petroleum went from a stock price high of $370 per share in 2014, to a low of $0.31 per share in 2020 right after the company declared bankruptcy.

Some of the largest, most successful oil companies operating in Texas such as Chesapeake Energy went from stock price high of $6,260 per share in 2014, to less than $0.20 per share in 2020 before the company declared bankruptcy.

I don’t know how to put this delicately and non-offensively, I was envious of Tom, of his career success, his financial success, and his wife Nicole.  I just have to admit that some people do better than others in life.  Sometimes it’s a matter of effort, intelligence, or luck.  But like I said, I never would have wanted to drag a woman like Nicole through the hardships and disappointments of my life.  But holy shit, getting so far ahead financially after all of that work, and then losing it all at our age, I wouldn’t want to trade places.

The Most Thorough, Comprehensive, And Insightful Information On Women

Over the past fifty years women have become more and more insane, irrational, and irresponsible, to the point that our society does not function anymore.  This is the truth, this is reality, whether you want to accept it or not.

In the United States, 40%-50% of first marriages end in divorce.  The divorce rate for subsequent marriages is even higher.  Besides women becoming more and more dissatisfied in marriage, they expect their future ex-husband to continue to pay for everything for them, just as if they were still married, even if this will leave him unable to pay for himself to live.

Family and marriage used to be the most important building block in a civilized, safe, law-abiding society.  Now, marriage is just a legal tool for women to try to confiscate money and wealth from men.

Outside of marriage, women still try to confiscate the money and wealth of men by becoming pregnant, or making claims of rape and sexual assault, even after more than twenty years have passed.

If you don’t believe that society is not functioning anymore, not only are most men beginning to realize that marriage, children, and relationships with women are not worth the cost, things like imitation-women sex-dolls are becoming more widespread and normalized:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aBRvbJwrwSQ&t=529s   This would be funny, until you stop and realize that more and more men would rather have sex with a synthetic doll than have anything to do with women.

In the last several years there have become more and more men that are discussing and writing about their decision to attempt to no longer deal with women under any circumstances, to the greatest extent possible.  This is the MGTOW movement, Men Going Their Own Way.

A reader might say that there have always been men who expressed their decision to not be involved with women anymore, such as philosophers, monks, or French Legionnaires.  The difference is, with MGTOW these men are not disengaging from normal life, they just believe that having any involvement with women will likely ruin their life.

For me, some of the MGTOW writers which make the most sense are “Hammer Hand”, “RPM”, “Coach Greg Adams”, “Better Bachelor”, and Tom Leykis.  Though these writers, YouTubers, and broadcasters make a great deal of sense to me with their ideas, observations, and arguments, each of them has a certain amount of anger which gets them sidetracked and distracted.

Recently, I began watching a YouTube channel called huMAN from Australia, that is to me like a synthesis of all MGTOW knowledge, observations, and arguments.  This channel was created by a man in his late forties four years ago, and it has about 250 videos.

This YouTube channel creator is a good speaker, he is calm, he remains focused, and he maintains a steady brisk pace.  Women can not say that he is a loser, because he is handsome, physically fit, very intelligent, well-spoken, and probably professionally, socially, and financially successful.

As an introduction to huMAN, I will share a video where he explains that women don’t want to be understood, they just want to be heard, be the center of attention, and waste your time:

Because huMAN stays on track so well, he often gets so far down a mental path that I don’t really want to go any further, I have heard enough, I can’t take any more.  I am not saying that his videos are too long or that he belabors a point, it’s that his analysis is often so thorough that I don’t need or want that much information.

I was glad to know, that his conclusions are ultimately the same as mine, Hammer Hand’s, RPM’s, Coach Greg Adams’, Better Bachelor’s, Tom Leykis’, and all the other MGTOW practitioners :

The way that things are now will ultimately come to an end, and women won’t like it.  When men walk away, the strong independent women will think that they will be O.K., but soon they will find out.

Men will stop paying child support, alimony, and taxes.  The military, law enforcement, corrections officers are mostly men.  They will not do their job, they will not arrest men, they will not incarcerate men, they will not respond to women’s 911 calls.  They will not help women, they will not listen to women, they will ignore women.

Collectively, men are sick of women’s shit.  When all men feel this same way at about the same time, it’s over for women.  Men may or may not go to work, but they are not going to listen to or respond to women, as they are all fed up with women’s schemes of child support, alimony, sexual harassment claims, false accusations, affirmative action, lies, deceit, trickery, and treachery.

When the electric power goes out, the gas utilities go out, the water quits running, the sewer backs up, there are no lights, no heat, no running water, backed up sewer, no food deliveries to the grocery store, no fuel deliveries to the gas station, no one responding to 911 calls,  when women plead for help, men will say, “A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle, go fix the shit yourself you stupid cunt.”

The Mischievous Deeds Of Stark County Commissioner Ken Zander

On July 22, 2020 there was a Dickinson Press newspaper article that began like this: “Multiple Stark County officials have confirmed that longtime Stark County Commissioner Ken Zander has been accused of a serious human resources violation by a female county employee and that the matter was forwarded to Stark County Human Resources for action.”

I am not a fan of sexual harassment claims or complaints.  I don’t like hearing them or hearing about them.  When I graduated back in 1995 with a degree in mechanical engineering, there was a mechanical engineer in his fifties who I worked with named John, who was a mentor to me.  John who had been much more successful than me with his career in engineering, said to me, “There is no such thing as sexual harassment.”

What John meant was this:  One of the main purposes of human beings is to procreate.  Without this strong persistent drive in human beings to reproduce, human beings would have gone extinct a long time ago.  From the beginning of human kind, males have used whatever means necessary to try to obtain a female to mate with.

Gradually over thousands of years, more civility has been introduced into the mating process.  Abducting women is usually not acceptable anymore.  Brute force has been replaced with other things, such as courtship and dating.  But what hasn’t changed, is the fact that men are still required to take the initiative and solicit women’s attention if they want to be able to mate.

It is ridiculous and absurd that the necessary step of men seeking the attention of women should or could be outlawed.  Most of you readers exist because some form of “sexual harassment” took place.

Now back to the story of Ken Zander’s mischievous deeds.  An October 7, 2020 Dickinson Press newspaper article outlined some of the complaints that were filed against Ken Zander by a female Stark County employee:

“According to the investigation report, a probe conducted by investigator KrisAnn Norby-Jahner into each of the 19 allegations levied against Zander by a female county employee — whose identity is being withheld for this article — outlined the nature and scope of the investigation as stemming from complaints involving sexual harassment and retaliation.”

“The employee alleges that Zander grabbed her buttocks and leaned in to kiss the woman during a work hours meeting, and that when told “never touch me again” Zander allegedly responded by yelling at her, “You better do what I tell you to do.”……

“The employee alleges that Zander sent multiple text messages with lewd, inappropriate and non-work-related images and text.”……

“The employee alleges that Zander pulled his vehicle next to hers and gestured with his hand in a motion going in and out of his mouth while using his tongue to push his cheek out.”…..

“The employee alleges that Zander placed a plate of pumpkin bars on her vehicle seat and made a statement concerning sex, to which she responded that it was inappropriate for him to say that, to which he laughed.”…..

“The employee alleges that an anonymous person informed her that they had a recording of a conversation occurring in a bar between Zander and other prominent members of the community, and that the audio recording captured Zander referring to the employee’s “fat ass” and that she “waddles around” her place of work.”…..

“The employee alleges that she was retaliated against for reporting sexual harassment.”….

The investigator looked into each of the allegations, and found that there was evidence of varying degrees to support some of the allegations, but no evidence in support of other allegations.  Ken Zander did partially admit to some of the alleged events, to the extent that he was just playing a joke.  In the end, this was the official determination as reported by the Dickinson Press:

“An investigation into allegations against Stark County Commissioner Ken Zander has concluded the longtime commissioner did not engage in unlawful harassment, workplace harassment, sexual harassment, retaliation or violations of the county’s payroll policies. The investigation did conclude, however, that Zander violated the county’s electronic tools policy.”

I want to acknowledge that I believe that the female Stark County employee who made a formal complaint with these and other allegations, might be devastated that there was no finding of misconduct by Ken Zander.  But I don’t know her.  I don’t know if she will take this in stride, like water off a duck’s back, as if this was mostly just an unwanted nuisance to her, or if this conduct was ruining her job and her life.

I was getting ready to write the following words, “An obvious lesson from this is….”, but the whole point of this blog post article is that there is no obvious lesson from this, because men and women see this completely differently.

I began this article by explaining that men are required to take the initiative and express their interest in women in order to mate.  Men try to speak to women, joke with them, show an interest in them, do things for them, do things to them, in order to gain their attention and affection.

In the real World, for men, in order to get anything, they must put in time, effort, work, energy, thought, and planning.  Hard work, dedication, persistence, sticking to it, not giving up is what is required.  Why would trying to acquire a female to mate with be any different?

Up until about forty years ago, time, effort, work, energy, thought, planning, dedication, persistence, and not giving up did pay off for men in finding a woman to mate with.  Every two months, the very popular syndicated newspaper columnist “Dear Abby” would publish letters from many of her married women readers.  These letters went something like this:

“Dear Abby,

I read your column last week where you published a letter from “Frustrated in Fresno” from a woman who didn’t know how to handle an unwelcome suitor who showed up at her place of employment every week asking her out on a date.

I had the exact same thing happen to me twenty years ago when I was working at a bank.  This construction worker man would come in every Friday and make sure to wait in line for me to cash his check.  Every Friday he would ask me out on a date, and I always refused as he was not my type.

It went on like this for a year, each Friday he asked me out.  Finally, just to get him to quit asking me out and having to tell him no, I agreed to go on one date with him.  To my surprise, he was very intelligent, funny, and had his whole life planned out what he wanted to do.

This November, we will have been married for twenty years, and we have had four children together.  I am sure glad that he never gave up on asking me out.”

Like I said, “Dear Abby” would publish many letters like this every couple of months, so that women could hear it straight from the mouth of other women, that persistence counts, it worked on them, and they were grateful that it did.

Today, women do not see things the same way they did forty years ago, which is a mistake and a detriment to them.  Feminism, Equal Rights, No-Fault Divorce, Mandatory Child-Support, Government Welfare, cosmetic surgery, online dating sites, women’s sex toys, sexual harassment claims, and sexual harassment lawsuits are tools and devices that women have begun using to supposedly help themselves, but these things have broken down society, civility, romance, relationships, marriage, and the happiness, safety, and security of women.

Lastly, in order to keep men out of trouble, especially with the shortage of women in Stark County, why can’t we have something like this http://www.escortofitaly.com/, and women in Stark County won’t have to be harassed anymore.

Stark County Residents Need To Stop And Think Before They Become Angry About A Budget Surplus

In the beginning of October I read an article titled, “State audit finds Stark County over-taxed citizens”.  This article states that an audit determined that there is currently roughly $40 million cash in Stark County funds.  Supposedly there is a North Dakota state law that says the amount of these cash reserves should not exceed $10.3 million.

Before Stark County residents become angry about the excess money being held by Stark County, this may actually be a rare instance of honesty, competence, and responsibility in government.

I want to point out right away, that it is well known that government bureaucracies are notorious for attempting to spend their entire budget completely each year in order to have justification for an equal or larger budget the following year, whether they actually need an equal or greater amount of money or not.  This has something to do with the fear of losing out on opportunity or losing power, by not having an equal or greater budget.

The fact that Stark County officials did not attempt to spend their entire budget completely, shows honesty, integrity, and responsibility with this money.  Is it wrong that Stark County officials did not try to spend more of this money, or is it commendable that they built up a surplus?

All adults living in western North Dakota witnessed the oil boom that occurred from 2007-2015, that caused a temporary migration of a couple hundred thousand out-of-state workers to this area, and required new housing, schools, shopping centers, hospitals, roads, and utility infrastructure.  The cost of this expansion and new infrastructure will continue to have to be paid for, even though the oil boom is over now, and many people have moved away.

Of course it was a wise decision and necessary for Stark County to build up a surplus of money during the oil boom, to be able to pay for expenses after the oil boom was over.  Did the State of North Dakota law limiting county funds to $10.3 million, ever take into account the oil boom and bust that would occur in western North Dakota?  The answer is no, but the Stark County Commissioners did the responsible and necessary thing, to accumulate a surplus.

Stark County Commissioner Jay Elkin has made the following statement a couple of times in response to the auditor calling the cash surplus an irregularity, “They’ve never had a problem in the past, and I even brought it up to the auditor last year, and they have always said ‘we’re not going to worry about that’ because it’s not a bad idea to have a reserve.”

Stark County residents may feel that they have been over-taxed.  They should think about how long it took to build up this supposed surplus of money and why there was a surplus of money.   Commissioner Elkin said that for the past five years, every year he has informed the North Dakota State’s Auditor’s Office about the cash surplus, but the state had never had an issue with the reserves in the past, saying that it was good to have this reserve.

It appears that there was an understanding that this revenue that was collected during the oil boom in western North Dakota that initially created a cash surplus, would be needed after the oil boom was over to pay for the aftermath, and there not be a shortfall of money.

If Stark County residents feel like they have been over-taxed because of the current budget surplus, would they be happier if Stark County officials had tried to get rid of this money by wasting it?  Would they be happier if Stark County began having a shortfall of money for next ten years due to poor planning?

This is one of the few times when residents should feel proud and grateful for the careful budgeting and spending of taxpayer money, but instead they are being led to believe that the Stark County Commissioners did something wrong.

You Can Listen To All Of William Cooper’s Hour Of The Time Radio Broadcasts From 1993-2001

In my previous blog post article, toward the end of it I began writing about the author, speaker, and AM Radio broadcaster William Cooper.

I am not going to repeat everything that I have already written about William Cooper recently, but I do need to emphasize to people who are not familiar with him, that though he may be labelled as a “conspiracy theorist”,  that description is erroneous for several reasons.

The whole reason why William Cooper wrote his 1991 book, “Behold A Pale Horse”, and began speaking to audiences when invited to do so, was to share his knowledge.  Not theories, but primarily his knowledge.

William Cooper’s father was a pilot and a Colonel in the Air Force.  As a child, William Cooper was told and overheard many stories and events experienced by his father, other Air Force officers, and other pilots involving strange occurrences and phenomena.

When William Cooper was 18, he enlisted in the Air Force.  He later enlisted in the Navy, was a river patrol boat Captain in Vietnam, a submariner, and he worked in the office of Naval Intelligence.

In William Cooper’s book, “Behold A Pale Horse”, he writes about his actual experiences, things he saw, things he learned, and things that he became aware of, these were Not Theories.  It is frustrating that reporters and journalists are too stupid to know the difference between someone recollecting what they experienced, saw, learned, and became aware of, versus someone expressing a theory.

There are approximately 2,000 episodes of the AM radio broadcasts of “Hour Of The Time” that aired between 1993-2001 that have been archived in MP3 format, on the website  http://hourofthetime.com/milton-william-cooper/

It is a little difficult to get to the archive page, so here this is  http://hourofthetime.com/milton-william-bill-cooper-mp3-collection/  Once you click on this link, scroll down the page until you come to this:

Why Do I Even Want To Write Anymore

For the past month I have been concerned about the amount of negative comments to my blog website, and the nastiness of these comments.

I had to realize that overall, less than one percent of readers leave any comment at all, and only 0.1% of readers leave complaint comments.  However, the 0.1% complainers tend to be enraged, extreme, and fanatical.

A pattern became apparent with the complaining comments left to my blog website and comments about my blog website left elsewhere, that “something needed to be done to stop me”.  There were a dozen tactics that were used to try to get me to both remove what I had already written, and to prevent me from writing anymore.

There were threats that various Law Enforcement agencies had been contacted and were going to be contacted in order to arrest me for stalking and harassment, and possibly child pornography, human trafficking, sexual exploitation of minors, rape, kidnapping, murder, and cruelty to animals.

The complaining commentors’ logic was, since I wrote about the persecution of a local young man for having sex with a minor, that I am guilty of the same thing because I wrote against his persecution.  Because I wrote about the great shortage of women in western North Dakota and the need for legalized prostitution, I must be guilty of human trafficking and rape.

Because I wrote about the foolishness of young women on Facebook and YouTube videoing themselves alone where they live wearing little or no clothing, that they are inviting trouble and almost daring people to find them, I must be guilty of kidnapping and murder.  I wrote about it, so I must have done it or plan on doing it.

Closer to the truth, is that the complainers don’t even believe that I have committed any crimes, but that other people, stupid people, mentally ill people, and Law Enforcement, could be persuaded that I have, because of the topics that I write about.

If the complainers were going to attempt to accuse me of actual crimes or criminal activity, it wouldn’t really do any good unless they could publish all of my personal information, so that people could find me and try to harm me.

By getting other people, stupid people, and mentally ill people to believe that I had committed heinous acts such as rape, kidnapping, murder, human trafficking, child pornography, sexual exploitation of children, and cruelty to animals, and giving these people instructions on my name and where I live, they could cause other people to harm me.  I believe that this was the complainers’ intention.

Here is just one example of how this played out.  In the area where I live, unbeknownst to me, there was a 51 year old mother of four who had been having increasingly severe mental problems over the past ten years.  In the sparsely populated area of western North Dakota where we live, she had been able to cope with life most of the time, there is very little going on, there are not many or constant stressors.

Somehow, I don’t know exactly how, this 51 year old mother of four with mental problems, she found or was shown a YouTube video about me and my blog website, that was in general accusing me of harming women and children, not because I had harmed anyone, but because the YouTube video creator was suggesting or indicating that I probably, likely, might have, would, or could.  This YouTube video which provided my name and where I lived, was meant to incite or enrage people to do something to me.

This mentally ill 51 year old woman was unable to discern from this YouTube video that I had not actually committed any crimes.  Instead, to this YouTube video creator’s delight, this woman began contacting her with additional information about me.  This mentally ill woman received encouragement, as if she was doing something good, right, and useful.

I first noticed this 51 year old woman when she was parked in a van in the alley behind my house one afternoon, video recording my house, property, vehicles, etc.  The YouTube video that she had watched about me, and the creator of this YouTube video had encouraged her to try to do something to/about me.  (I later saw and copied the comments between this woman and the YouTube video creator, before they were deleted.)

The following morning this mentally ill 51 year old woman was standing outside my house yelling at me with an axe in her hand.  Besides my phone call to local Law Enforcement that morning, as the day went on there were approximately six other people in town who called local Law Enforcement regarding her, for such things as seeking No Trespass orders against her from their businesses, Restraining Orders against her from individuals, and Destruction of Property by her in excess of $5,000.

Up until that day, this woman had been able to cope with life enough, to have a relatively normal life with daily activities, interaction with other people, and live independently in her own home.  Now, it appears that she is going to lose everything.  Much of the blame for what happened to this woman, lies with the people who tried to incite and enrage stupid or mentally ill people to act on their allegations or suggestions of heinous despicable crimes by me which never occurred.

I do not think that this is funny.  I think that this is tragic.  I was not harmed.  But this woman’s life was ruined.  The people that were instigating and trying to incite something to happen to me, I believe that they could not care less what happened to this woman.  They probably think that this is funny.

One result of this incident, is that the local people and local Law Enforcement currently have no more tolerance for anyone trying to make false allegations of criminal activity in order to incite other people to do something.  Look at what just happened.

On most days, I have about three or four topics that I want to write about, that I feel the need to write about.  My feelings have not changed about wanting to reveal, discuss, explain, delve into events that happen around me.

I should probably admit that I write for my own sake.  Philosophers have pointed out, that no matter how charitable or well-meaning we think our actions are, ultimately each of us is acting in our own self-interest.

I sometimes try to explain that I am trying to change things.  By pointing out how wrong, ignorant, stupid, and backwards some practices and behaviors are, I think that I can cause them to change.  By trying to explain a different view, a different way of looking at things, a different approach, a better way, I think that I can cause things to change.

To get at the truth, expose something bad, or cause people to see, it is sometimes necessary to say things that are unwelcome, unpopular, unpleasant, ugly, hurtful, painful, and mean.  Life is hard, many things in life are hard and difficult.  I truly believe that the quality of life has been ruined since after approximately WWII, by people’s aversion to the necessity of facing the hardness of life, by refusing to face the hard truth and facts.

I am not trying to digress into vague babbling, I want to try to express something very specific.  I personally want to point out things that are wrong, stupid, ignorant, and backwards, and I can sometimes only do it by saying things that will be unwelcome, unpopular, ugly, hurtful, painful, and mean.  This arouses such anger and rage in some readers, that they go through the processes that I described up above to try to get me to stop writing or remove what I have already written.

I don’t plan on stopping.  I kind of recognize and believe that the downfall of our civilization and the ruin of our quality of life has come from people’s aversion to doing anything hard, making any kind of sacrifice, or truly believing in anything.

Just by chance and out of boredom, I recently began watching some videos of William Cooper’s old 1992-2001 radio broadcasts of his show “Hour Of The Time”.  For those of you who don’t know, William Cooper was a river patrol boat Captain for the Navy during the Vietnam War.  He also was a submariner.  When he got out of the military at age 32, for a time he taught at vocational and technical schools in California.  Here is his biography https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milton_William_Cooper

Though William Cooper was not highly educated, he was very intelligent, well-read, an excellent researcher, and an excellent speaker.  He was not glamorous or fancy, he was very matter-of-fact and no-nonsense.

Through his book “Behold A Pale Horse” published in 1991, and his radio show which aired from 1992-2001, William Cooper tried very hard to explain to the American people and the World, the truth about governments, World-history, wars, secret societies, UFOs, aliens, secret technology, and the coming One-World-Government.

What William Cooper had to say, was very hard for most people to hear.  They could not believe what he had to say, it was preposterous, it was unfathomable, it challenged most of what they had believed and believed in for their entire lives.  It didn’t matter if it was true, it was too hard for many people to even consider it.

To give just a few examples, William Cooper tried to explain at length that the Federal Reserve Bank was not a U.S. Government institution, that it was a privately owned bank, and all of the unbelievable ways that its private European family bank owners were becoming even more rich at the expense of the American tax payers.  This was just too complicated for most Americans to grasp or understand.  Here is one of his radio broadcasts about the Federal Reserve Bank  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9yb2lgDYDGM&t=2130s

Another topic area that William Cooper frequently spoke about, was all of the secrets that the U.S. Government keeps from the American people.  The knowledge and cooperation that the U.S. Government has with a variety of extraterrestrial species, advanced technology, underground jointly operated bases, jointly operated bases on the moon, advanced spacecraft.

What is never mentioned or hardly ever mentioned, is that William Cooper with his ties and connections to former and active duty military personnel, military contractors, space industry personnel, and intelligence officers, he was receiving actual information, he was not theorizing or speculating.

In approximately June of 2001, following a CNN interview with Osama Bin Laden, William Cooper began explaining on his radio program that soon there would be an attack on the U.S., that would be blamed on Osama Bin Laden, that would draw the U.S. into war in the Middle East.  William Cooper’s detailed explanation about what was going to happen, several months prior to the attack on the World Trade Center buildings on September 11, 2001, led to William Cooper being shot dead in his front yard by about ten Law Enforcement Officers on November 5 of 2001.  Here is his 9/11 prediction broadcast  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s9B5wwuR_JY

Ever since William Cooper published his book “Behold A Pale Horse” and began his radio show “The Hour Of The Time” in 1992, William Cooper had to deal with continual opposition, harassment, and threats.  He continued with his research, and passing along what he had discovered and learned week after week, year after year, always facing opposition, receiving no or very little financial support.  He said many times, that there would come a point that he would be murdered because he had disclosed too much.

William Cooper believed in what he was doing.  One time when he tried to explain why he even cared to try to disclose the truth to the American people and the World about what was truly happening, he said this:  You have got to understand, that when I was a boy growing up outside of Oklahoma City, I did not know any family where there was a divorce, I did not know any girl who got pregnant while in high school, I did not know anyone who had a drug addiction, and everyone who wanted to work had a job.  That World is gone now, it doesn’t exist anymore.  What has happened?

This was a good time for me to hear William Cooper again and to think about him.  He was not seeking to get rich, fame, popularity, or to be liked.  He could not care less about these things.  He said that he did not care what people thought about him.  In his forties and fifties, he didn’t seek to get ahead career-wise, make money, get rich, care about having possessions or nice things, travel, luxury, being a celebrity.  He mostly believed in learning, understanding, and sharing with others what he learned, in the hope that they could change things.

Recent Complaints And Why I Write

A couple of days ago a YouTuber named Prepper Princess made a video about me that was very critical. As far as I could tell, of the 1,500 comments that her video received so far, about 80% of the commentors were siding with Prepper Princess. This is not too surprising, it is her YouTube channel.

So far, of the 20,000 views that Prepper Princess’s video received, it looks like about 6,000 of these viewers came to look at my blog website, because this is the amount of extra views that I received in the past couple of days.

However, what this means, is that only 30% of Prepper Princess’s viewers even bothered to check to see if I was stalking, harassing, and threatening her as she says. 70% of Prepper Princess’s viewers just took her word for it, without questioning whether there was any evidence.

As for my blog website, over the past five years I have written a little over 800 articles. The amount of complaint comments that I received has been less than 1%, it has been 0.2 % . If you take into account that my complainers leave two or three complaint comments, the number of readers who complain about my blog website articles is 0.1% .

Approximately 300 of the negative comments regarding me that were submitted to the Prepper Princess video were insulting and threatening towards me. This was annoying because like I just got done explaining, 70% of the Prepper Princess video viewers did not even go look at my blog website article to see if I was in fact stalking, harassing, or threatening Prepper Princess.

Prepper Princess, and the angry threatening commentors chose to focus on the blog post articles that I have written about women. I estimate that over the past five years, 10%-15% of my blog post articles have been about women. Most of the time I write about other things.

It is frustrating and disappointing that angry commentors would dwell on the blog post articles about women, and they don’t even know why I have written these blog post articles at all, though I have explained it more than a hundred times. For probably the 150th time, here goes:

There is a shortage of women in western North Dakota. The ratio of men to women in Dickinson is currently about 3:1. In areas like Watford City or Williston, the ratio of men to women is currently about 5:1, maybe even higher than this.

There is a scarcity of attractive women in western North Dakota. The women who are here, have taken advantage of the shortage of women. Because of the shortage of women here, the women who are here are overweight, unkempt, sloven, slopily dressed, hostile, mean, and unfriendly.

I have explained nearly fifty times, that the only way that a person in western North Dakota is going to see an attractive or normal looking woman, is to find some nice looking woman on the internet, on a site such as EscortOfItaly.com, Chaturbate, or YouTube.

For commentors living elsewhere in the United States, they have not paid any attention to my explanation of why I am writing about women elsewhere, because there are practically none here, except for the Jack-O’-Lantern women.

It would be like commentors complaining that an author kept writing about female deer over and over again, like he was obsessed with female deer. It would not make any sense to them, unless the readers knew that the author was a male deer.

Just like my “About” page for my blog website says, I began writing this blog so that readers from out of state could learn about Dickinson, so that people who had been here for a short while could see that they were not alone in trying to figure Dickinson out, and so that the local people here could see what other people felt and experienced in Dickinson.

Now that I write this, it makes me angry that the recent complaining commentors to my blog website are totally ignorant to the purpose and circumstances of the experiences that I am writing about.

From 2007-2014, there were probably about 250,000 workers from out of state who were lured to western North Dakota by widely publicized claims that everyone here was making $100,000 per year due to the oil boom. To get an idea of how extreme this influx of workers is, the entire population of the state of North Dakota is less than 800,000 people.

Not only did the majority of people working in western North Dakota not make $100,000 per year, tens of thousands of workers were forced to sleep in their vehicles in places like Walmart parking lots, truck stops, recreational parks, and industrial parks. In North Dakota, September through May, nine months of the year, it gets very cold at night.

Me personally, when I first came to Dickinson to work, I spent May-November of 2011 sleeping in a $500 truck bed camper on the back of my Dodge truck. Then, May-November of 2013, I spent sleeping in a 7’x14′ utility trailer. That was where I slept, my after work waking hours were spent in restaurants, bars, truck stops, and laundromats. Remember, at that time the rents in western North Dakota were higher than in San Francisco and NYC.

2014-2016, I lived as a renter in Dickinson in the home of a curmudgeonly older local resident. 2017-2019 when rents finally came down in Dickinson, I was able to rent a 2br/1ba apartment in downtown Dickinson, but crime was very bad.

Finally, in May of 2020 I was able to buy a small home. This home is not 640 square feet as Prepper Princess described in her derogatory video about me. The basement, which is probably the original footprint of this home, the basement is about 600 square feet, the main floor is about 800 square feet, so the total living area is about 1,400 square feet. The yard is 100’x150′.

So if anyone had been following my blog website from the beginning, or made an attempt to see what my blog website was about, they would have known that myself and tens of thousands of out of state workers started out by sleeping in our vehicles for nearly a year at a time. Then transitioned into housing that was undesirable, unpleasant, and overpriced. Ever heard the word “man-camp”?

After all of the really horrible, unpleasant, unsafe, dangerous, hostile working conditions and living conditions here in western North Dakota, I was finally able to pay for all at once and move into a 1,400 sq.ft. home on a large lot. But none of this would mean anything to the dumb fuck commentors who never worked in the oil field when it was -40 degrees Fahrenheit outside, and went home to sleep in a freezing vehicle or camper.
