Overnight Millionaires in North Dakota

Hello RWN readers,

Let me take this time to introduce myself: I’m Skye, blog mistress of MidnightBlue and a contributor at Flopping Aces. I want to take a moment to thank John Hawkins for inviting me to guest post on Right Wing News today. I’ve been a fan of RWN for a number of years, and to have the opportunity to post on this remarkable website makes me all kinds of happy! Also, I would like to say hello to the brilliant commenters of RWN, especially CavalierX.

Just yesterday, over at MidnightBlue, I was bemoaning the silence on the outsourcing our energy products. Today, I discover all it not lost – that there is oil that can be stamped ‘Made in America’.

BEULAH, N.D. — Oscar Stohler was raised in a sod house in western North Dakota and ranched there for nearly seven decades. He never gave much thought to what lay below the grass that fattened his cattle.

A humble beginning for this newly minted millionaire.

In less than a year, Stohler and his wife, Lorene, 82, have become millionaires from the production of one well on their land near Dunn Center, a mile or so from the sod home where Oscar grew up. A second well has begun producing on their property and another is being drilled — all aimed at the Bakken shale formation, a rich deposit that the U.S. Geological Survey calls the largest continuous oil accumulation it has ever assessed.

These are the jobs most Americans are not allowed to do thanks to decades of successful shunning of our natural resources by Green activists.
