While Americans are robbed at the gas pump, Exxon Mobil recently reported a 60% increase in its quarterly net profits to a cool $10 billion. Royal Dutch/Shell reported a 30% increase.

In 1975 British writer Anthony Sampson penned The Seven Sisters, bestowing a collective name on a shadowy oil cartel, which throughout its history has sought to eliminate competitors and control the world’s oil resource. Sampson’s “Seven Sisters” name came from independent Italian oil man Enrico Mattei.

In the 1960’s Mattei began negotiating with Algeria, Libya and other nationalistic OPEC states who wanted to sell their oil internationally without having to deal with the Seven Sisters. Algeria had a long history of defying Big Oil and was once ruled by President Houari Boumedienne, one of the great Arab socialist leaders of all time, who initiated the original ideas for a more just “New International Economic Order” in fiery speeches at the UN, where he encouraged producer cartels modeled on OPEC as a means to Third World emancipation.

When you’re being robbed, it’s always a good idea to be able to identify the perp. Now if only we could get the cops to bring em’ in…

Prety hard to bring in the criminals when our governments are getting a good slice of the loot. So are most of our pension plans.

I got a better chance at a good retirement from high oil prices than I do from buying lottery tickets.

Lotto would be nice... So would be inventing Microsoft a year before Gates did.

Same chance at realizing either one

I thought about forming either a government or a church. Either one appears to be a good way to get something for nothing tax free.

And does require a 4 year degree like a church.

Back to reality...


Mobil paid out $2.05 a share.

Is it evil to own Mobil shares?
