Oil Sucks!

I'm not feeling very verbose tonight, so I'll just make my point in short order. So, the oil companies just came out with their quarterly financial reports, and guess what!! That's right, radically MORE profits. Market forces my ass. Someone explain this to me. A barrel of oil goes up $1, approximately 1.4% rise in price. Yet the price at the pump goes up about 5-10% on a weekly basis! Like they say, if you look far enough, market forces don't make the rules, the local gas station doesn't make the rules, but oil barons make the rules. That's right, they aren't called oil barons, oil monopolies, or oil kingdoms without someone being in charge and pulling the strings! Can't wait for that oil loving, rich boy, bumbling fool we call a president to move on so that the rich toadies and brown-nosing corporate kiss-ups aren't being supported by a fraternal relationship. Frankly, I'm not sure we'll be any better with whomever steps in because the current choices that have stepped forward are just the same kind of flunky. I love America, but sometimes, daytime television and snazzy propaganda make all the policies for our country, and it sickens me. If people would just think for themselves, and make their own decisions, we wouldn't be in this predicament. 'Nuff said on this.
