Oil Companys' Secret Meetings

The major oil companies got together in California and agreed not to compete with each other. $3 is the new price, regardless of cost. This isn't how the free market system is supposed to work.

Document Says Oil Chiefs Met With Cheney Task Force
Any connection, you think?

Coke has a new ad campaign where the diet tastes so much like the original, that they want to sue themselves. Stupid.

Then I thought about how this country is controlled by health care, oil, and the rest of the powers that be, and how each of these industries contribute to both political parties. In one light, this practice can be seen as hedging bets (and therefore as proof of repayment for campaign contributions). But in another light, it can be seen as two competing ad campaigns by the same producer. No matter who wins, the controlling interests are still in power.

Bush and Cheney are both Oil men anyway. Who is surprised by this?

Or that the oil execs would lie about this?

I hope FeeltheLove comments on this. He himself is from Houston and has had extensive dealings with the Petroleum industry.

The oil industry is the most vile and corrupt force on this planet. The Bush family has always been their front men, that is their job in the oil empire. They are also deeply personally involved with the Saudis to the point I question their allegiance to this country. In truth, they have none, their allegiance is to oil. There is much, much more to the Bin Laden story than we have ever been told, in fact my belief is that Bin Laden is being helped by members of the Saudi royal family.

Politically, the oil industry contributions go out it an 80/20 ratio, Republicans to Democrats. The amount of money they pour into our political process is astounding. It should also be illegal. Oil companies are nations unto themselves. They are beyond what we would call "a business". They are empires, with no allegiance to anything but greed. They should be barred from participation in the democratic processes of this country the same way we bar other foreign nations from participating. For facts and figures:

Industry Totals: Oil & Gas

Make sure you look at the figues for the year 2000.

Has anyone seen the movie "SYRIANA"? Syriana
Great movie. I can't help wondering that there must be some truth in that movie.
