National Anthems

The national anthem for the Islamic State and Central American teen-agers:

Coming To America, Neil Diamond
My, how things have changed. Governor Jerry Brown: "You're all welcome in California." The bullet train will take them to San Francisco.


  1. Jerry Brown you say.... California Über Alles


    For all my punk rockers out there in rough neck country.

    1. The music is not for everyone, but the song has historical relevance.

  2. Ballard Petroleum had a significant oil discovery in Bottineau county. With 600 barrels of oil and only 27 barrels of water in the Madison Formation. Will this help the minerals to increase in value in this general area? Thank You
