"Michelle Maguire is paying $950 a month to park her RV in a farmers’ field two miles out of town – and that’s considered reasonable. Camper parking spots, with no utilities, rent for up to $1,400. Still it’s painful when she considers the farmer is making about $100,000 a year renting out parking spaces, and that she is paying as much to keep her family of four in a 44-ft trailer as she is to hang on to the family home in Montana. Milk is $6 a gallon, a shower at the local truck stop costs $10."

There’s an oil boom in North Dakota right now equivalent to the California Gold Rush of 1849.

ND sometimes, like when you are over run by greedy assholes, I’m ashamed to call you home. I wish oil wasn’t such a big deal. I wish America was better at making things for America in America, damn the cost. I wish a lot of things…
