    Fun fact about the billboards: they’re still here. And we have no idea who pays for these things, but they’ve been around as long as I can remember

    Who'd have known in 2020 the barrel is worth more than oil in it .

    And you're still wondering WHY the Native Americans are demonstrating in North Dakota to resist the pipeline that will potentially spoil their water supply???? Think.

    It’s nearly 2 AM, and I’m laying in my bed, on YouTube, watching someone talk about oil company regulations- or lack thereof. In hindsight, this is probably why my mornings are terrible. Regardless, John Oliver makes some hilarious comparisons, I guess.

    Actually, I lived there for a while, deep in the heart of ND. They are not nice. They are, literally, screaming bigots; though, to be fair, some are silent bigots.

    In the UK sub contractors count as employees under health and safety law. It avoids this kind of lack of employer responsibility.

    69 hours that's almost 3 full days for an explosive technician,  that's terrifying

    And Republicans still vote against government enforced business regulations. They'll say something heartless like: "Well, the guy knew what he was getting into when he signed the contract."

    My friend worked in the Bakken oil fields and came home with leukemia. I wonder how many others got sick?

    Ya know what “pro business” means? Most of the time it means that regulators and law makers are influenced by businessmen to make as much money as possible by screwing over the workers by cutting or removing safety measures, benefits, pay etc. Wealthy people and businesses pay lobbyists to cut or remove as many benefits and safety measures as possible that directly, negatively affect workers. The workers rarely if ever have people lobbying for them in return. As usual, money TRUMPs people’s health, well being and livelihood. It blows my mind how many do not vote in there best interest and will actually protect and defend the companies that fuck them over so that they can get rich(er). These people fuck themselves over and maybe even worse, fuck there fellow workers over as well as all the families who depend on them. People sit there and talk about all these conservative ideals and how awesome capitalism is but when they loose there lives or become injured or loose there job for some reason and then find themselves with no healthcare or unemployment benefits or whatever it is they may need after loosing life, a limb, a job so that some company can pay 15% less taxes and make even more money for themselves and there stockholders and in the end suffer the greed of others. They will STILL sit there and defend this bullshit! WTF is wrong with people?!? This isn’t a damn Republican or Democratic rant! This is a rich people fucking over the poor people rant!! Wake up people!! Rich people don’t give 2 shits about you! Stop voting for people who advocate, defend and endorse the rich people who are more than willing to fuck over Joe Q Public!!! Eat the rich!!!!

    Hiring sub-contractors. I live in Japan, have been here 36 years, and this is the standard operating procedure for large corporations to avoid responsibility of compliance to Japanese Labor law. The law mostly applies to only full time employees, not sub-contractors. And did you know that many of the workers at the pre-tsunami nuclear power plants are untrained and under-protected sub-contractors .... as are the foreign immigrant labor hired to clean up the shit?

    Having come from North Dakota... I can say the oil boom has been disastrous to my community.
