There's Oil In Them Thar Hills!
South Dakota has the Black Hills and it looks like North Dakota has the Black Gold. It appears that North Dakota and eastern Montana have huge deposits of oil (about 4.3 BILLION barrels) two miles under the surface.
In order to take advantage of this situation and reduce our dependence on foreign oil I suggest a simple two step process:
- Gather up all of the environmental wackos who might sue to stop this and send them to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Alternatively, shoot them in the head.
- Poke holes in the ground IMMEDIATELY and suck out the oil.
