I Have Discovered A New Mental Disorder

It's called Barnett Shale Tired Head (or "BSTH"), and I hereby claim copyright and trademark and all those other legal words. So everybody else back off.

I can't turn on the TV invention without seeing something about the Barnett Shale. Then there's billboards and the countless newspaper articles. Everybody is getting rich off that stuff except me. Not a dime. (OK, maybe a few bucks from some random oilfield worker gets falsely accused by a trooper of driving while liquored up.) But, in general, mention of the Barnett Shale causes a great deal of depression in my life including Barry tears rolling down my Barry cheeks. I mean, I can hardly breathe when I see terms like "$800 million," above.

Anyway, I'm working on getting "BSTH" included in the DSM-V. If I pull that off, I'll buy my own oil well. Just like Eddie Chiles told me to do when I was a boy.

I feel your pain. I get the same sick feeling when I turn on the TV or radio and all I hear is the Messiah Barry Hussein mumbling without a script.

There was a letter to the editor two weeks back of a lady saying how she went from barely getting by, then getting a job in oil and gas here and has paid off her mortgage etc. and I was thinking the same thing. Hey, how can I get some of this cash because I would love to pay off my mortgage etc.

I am also tired of the Barnett Shale talk. Chesapeake wont even pay their bills to us small contractors (120 days + on invoices we've submitted) but they can sure spend the $$$$ on advertising and self promotion.

Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House of Rep., have you ever noticed her eyes blink about 10,000 times per minute? How can she even see??? That makes me CRAZY!

If you get all liquored up, how can you be falsely accused?

If the Barnett Shale is responsible for a mental disorder, then it sounds like you could represent all of Wise Co. in a class-action lawsuit. Except, you claim to be the first to identify it. Sooo, looks like we will have to put "The Texas Hammer" on retainer

I wonder how the "Texas Hammer" is doing? Or was it the "Texas Strongarm"?

Anyway, whichever tough smart law-yer got in that bad car accident.

Barry, be of good cheer, my friend. Just think about poor Rush Limbaugh, whose $400 million is only HALF of the Barnett Shale figures! LOL

I thought that would make you feel better...

Love, gern

I guess they figure if you hear somebody cool (and native Texan) Tommy Lee Jones say that the Barnett shale is good for us and for North Texas then it must be so. (He must own a big ranch with mineral rights)

Actually he does...his Ranch backs up to friend of mines deer Lease (between San saba and Cheroke)..damn he needs some Botox though...

Poor Rush Limbaugh, whose $400 million is only HALF of the Barnett Shale figures can molest a lot of children and take a lot of drugs including Viagra and get by with it! LOL

I thought that would make you feel better...Gern.....
