Grassy Butte - The oil boom has changed a lot in western North Dakota, but locals here can still depend on one tiny convenience store. Beicegel Station in the unincorporated community of Grassy Butte has all the groceries and necessities locals need, free coffee in the morning and owners who’d get out of bed to help a stranded motorist. “You ain’t going to find another one like it,” owner Don Trotter said of the store. Motorists pump gas with antique fuel pumps at the station, which Don owns with his wife, Vickie. While many Oil Patch gas stations now require drivers to pre-pay for fuel,

Our little Station in Grassy Butte ND. Lucianne.com is what keeps my sanity. We live/work in the heart of the oil country. I see so many people just in search of of job. Sigh.

They figured out a way to keep liberals out. Produce oil and have hard work.
All the crime infested areas of the country are Obama strongholds.

The maker of Sam Adams beer announced Friday that it is withdrawing its sponsorship of Boston´s St. Patrick´s Day parade because organizers exclude gay groups. Boston Beer Co.´s decision came a day after a bar in Boston´s South End said it would no longer serve Sam Adams beer because of the brewer´s affiliation with the parade, which is scheduled for Sunday. Mayor Martin Walsh and U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch have been trying to broker a deal that would have allowed a gay group to march, but those negotiations broke down. "We were hopeful that both sides of this issue would

Secretary of State John Kerry warned of serious repercussions for Russia on Monday if last-ditch talks over the weekend to resolve the crisis in Ukraine failed to persuade Moscow to soften its stance. Kerry will travel to London for a Friday meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov ahead of a Sunday referendum vote in the Crimea region to secede from Ukraine and join the Russian Federation. U.S. and European officials argue that Moscow is orchestrating the referendum and waging an intimidation campaign with thousands of Russian troops controlling the region. If Russian-backed lawmakers in Crimea go through with the

Fertility is the missing chapter in sex education. Sobering facts about women’s declining fertility after their 20s are being withheld from ambitious young women, who are propelled along a career track devised for men. The refusal by public schools’ sex-education programs to acknowledge gender differences is betraying both boys and girls. The genders should be separated for sex counseling. It is absurd to avoid the harsh reality that boys have less to lose from casual serial sex than do girls, who risk pregnancy and whose future fertility can be compromised by disease. Boys need lessons in basic ethics and moral reasoning

The vote was 233-181 in the Republican-led House as GOP lawmakers excoriated Obama for multiple changes to his 4-year-old health care law, steps he’s taken to allow young immigrants to remain in the United States and the administration’s resistance to defend the federal law banning gay marriage. Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., sponsor of the ENFORCE the Law Act, delivered a fiery speech and read a series of statements by Obama when he was an Illinois senator in which he warned of the encroachment of the executive on the powers of the other branches of government. “How does going from being

U.S. investigators suspect that Malaysia Airlines 3786.KU -4.08% Flight 370 stayed in the air for about four hours past the time it reached its last confirmed location, according to two people familiar with the details, raising the possibility that the plane could have flown on for hundreds of additional miles under conditions that remain murky. Aviation investigators and national security officials believe the plane flew for a total of five hours, based on data automatically downloaded and sent to the ground from the Boeing Co. BA -0.99% 777´s engines as part of a routine maintenance and monitoring program. That raises

US officials believe that two communications systems aboard Malaysian Airlines flight 370 were shut down separately, 14 minutes apart - which indicates the plane did not come down because of a sudden catastrophic failure. The data reporting system was shut down at 1.07 am and the transponder was turned off at 1.21 am just after the the pilot signed off to Malaysian air traffic controllers with ´All right, good night,´ and before the Boeing 777 apparently changed course and turned west. According to investigators this indicated that the switch-off could have been a deliberate act and officials told ABC News that the

President Barack Obama lamented on Friday that he´s been unfairly criticized for wearing loose jeans. “I’ve been unfairly maligned about my jeans,” he joked in a radio interview with Ryan Seacrest. “The truth is, generally I look very sharp in jeans." One fashion faux pas at the 2009 MLB All-Star baseball game was a costly learning experience, he added. "There was one episode like four years ago in which I was wearing some loose jeans mainly because I was out on the pitcher’s mound and I didn’t want to feel confined while I was pitching and I think I’ve paid

Will Darrell Issa say he’s sorry? House Democrats again targeted the controversial Issa on Thursday, with a bid to force the California Republican to publicly apologize for what they dub his “repeated history of abuse” toward the minority party. Democratic Rep. Dan Kildee (Mich.)’s resolution condemns Issa for repeated clashes with Democrats – exchanges Kildee said don’t live up to the responsibility of a committee chairman. Issa wields the gavel at the powerful House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, which is probing the Internal Revenue Service controversy and Benghazi, among other hot issues. “[I]t seems that Chairman Issa is more

Scientists who don´t believe in catastrophic man-made global warming should be put in prison, a US philosophy professor argues on a website funded by the UK government. Lawrence Torcello - assistant professor of philosophy at Rochester Institute of Technology, NY, writes in an essay at The Conversation that climate scientists who fail to communicate the correct message about "global warming" should face trial for "criminal negligence". (H/T Bishop Hill) The Conversation - no relation of Breitbart´s blogging chatroom - is a website promoting articles by academics and funded by nineteen of Britain´s leading universities, as well as several government agencies, including the

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid renewed his crusade against the Koch brothers Thursday, and demanded that Republicans disavow the two men who have spent tens of millions of dollars to back conservative causes. “Is even one of you — is even one of you — willing to stand up and disavow the Koch brothers’ agenda?” Mr. Reid demanded on the Senate floor as he opened Thursday’s session. It’s the latest installment in what’s becoming a frequent attack by Mr. Reid on David and Charles Koch, two of the wealthiest men in America. Mr. Reid led off his weekly press availability

The Most Cynical Generation

In case you hadn’t heard, young people these days — a.k.a “the Millennials” — are the most cynical and distrusting generation ever recorded. Only 19 percent think most people can be trusted. According to a big study from the Pew Research Center, they are less attached to marriage, religion, and political institutions than Gen Xers, Baby Boomers, and the other demographic flavors journalists love to use. They like their friends, their digital “social networks,” and their toys, and that’s about it. Not even a majority will call themselves “patriotic.” Probably more dismaying for liberals: Of any living generation, they are

In an interview with Vocativ.com, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) expressed a desire for factions within the Republican Party to “agree to disagree” on hot-button social issues so that the GOP tent may expand to include more young people and alternative viewpoints. Asked whether the general consensus at last week’s Conservative Political Action Conference was that the party must butt out of social issues, Paul replied: I think that the Republican Party, in order to get bigger, will have to agree to disagree on social issues. The Republican Party is not going to give up on having quite a few people
