I have almost 2 qts of amsoil that are about a year old. in an open 5 quart jug with the lid on it. does anyone know if i can still use it or i guess my question is does it go bad after the seal has been broke if its just sitting on the shelf. i tried to search but found nothing

I think 4-5 years is quoted by the major motor oil producers. I've seen a used oil analysis of oil that had been sitting in the bike for 10 years (according to the owner) and had only a couple of hundred miles on it and it was still like new.

EDIT: If you do a Google search with the words 'shelf life motor oil' you should find information from the oil majors.
