6. Keeping oil production low...less gas - higher profits! Controlling & stealing Iraq's flow
Edited on Fri Mar-02-07 10:55 PM by GreenTea
to a minimum is what they are after...larger profits for less product...first rule in business, it preserves the product as well, so as to charge more later...record oil companies profits prove they will continue to gouge us at the pumps..."less gas" is costing us $3.09 at the pump up here in Humboldt County, how about you? Controlling the flow with the usual oil company lies & excuses will only increase these fuckers profits...they have us over the barrel if you will.

Saudi Arabia, BushCo & the Carlyle Group all business partners making a "killing"!

Now they want Iran's huge oil fields, got to control that flow...Imperialism, war for profit...Poor Hugo will be all alone until they get him too.

And what are they forcing us to live with...pollution, pollution and more pollution as well as more gouging at the pumps, with no end in sight.

Controlling the flow, the killing & dying, stealing our tax dollars is what it's ALL about...The fucks are multi-nations, they don't care about us...They only pretend to care and offer their phony patriotism. It increases their profits!
