Placebo For The Wallet

Well finally, Congress has stepped in to go a few rounds with the big oil executives about the soaring prices of oil related products, and the coincidental record profits reported by these companies. Although many Americans may take comfort in knowing that our elected representatives are attempting to find answers and possible solutions to these issues, I would like to remind everyone that many of the reps serving on these committees and subcommittees receive, either directly or indirectly, funding for the lobby of the same organizations they are questioning. In other words ... a sham. I find it amazing that dairy farmers are forced to abide by laws that dictate the price of their product, yet oil companies do what they please. If the farmers were allowed to make a better income, they too would be able to pay off their congressional delegates to facilitate laws and regulations that would benefit themselves.
