So, my question is, who the hell is running this country now? You? Me? Corporations? Do you really believe oil and gas companies are doing this for your benefit, or for theirs? Do you really think that corporate America who has shipped jobs off shore, attacked workers rights, raided retirement funds, is now drilling for gas and oil for Amierica's benefit and in doing so they seek dictatorial laws and immunity also for our good?
See I think a lot of people do buy it, they believe as the Italians did in the 1930's, benevolent dictators working with industry can solve everything, and we all live blindfolded and gagged ever after.
