A Shame Under Any Other Name

Oil companies once again have registered record profits.

Unimaginable profits during any "time", but especially in this "time". They eat steak and cavort in an area where a heart has grown cold.

And remember that "these times" have been spurred on in significant degree by the fact that oil prices went up so high they seemed to have attained earth orbit. You know, sky high.

And all this while the American economy went and continues to go lower and lower and lower. You know, the tank.

During this time Haliburton, past employer of Dick Cheney and a company Cheney has large amounts of stock in, profited from no-bid contracts and then moved its headquarters to a land run by oil sheiks. Dubai UAE.

Is this nation suffering from a country last attitude in high places?

The oil barons claim they have no effect on oil prices. And those who believe that story are on their payroll in one way or another.

It is time to be horrified.

  1. Meanwhile, a city of steel is growing cold and wondering what happened to America and that dream thingy.

    Sounds like they have been bushed aside.
