by Solarity
Thursday Mar 13th, 2014 4:12 PM
Oil belongs to a country, not to privateers. Petroplutocrats have destroyed the environment,
have pricegouged the poor and all, have caused coups in
socialist countries like Iran in 1953, have assassinated people,
have caused runaway inflation, have conspired since the early 1900's to destroy train systems
and electric car industries.

Besides the oil and gas billionaires are their pawns in the governors' chairs and
senate and representative seats of Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana etc. Senators John Cornyn and Ted Cruz of Texas,
Coburn and Inhofe of Oklahoma, Mary Landrieu and David Vitter of Louisiana, Governor Rick Perry of Texas,
Governor Bobby Jindal of Louisiana are some.
330 224 3121 to speak to the staff of the pawns of the oil prostitutes on Capitol Hill

Republican David Jolly, former lobbyist for the offshore drilling industry, has been in a special election
sent to Washington. Untold secret dollars flowed to him from those who wouldn't
mind another BP disaster in the Gulf, Shell disaster in the Niger Delta, or Exxon disaster in the waters off
of Alaska.

Ray Lee Hunt of Hunt Oil is on the list. One of his relatives once said "Deals under 100 mil are for shoe clerks'"

Mikhail Fridman is one of the oligarchs who stole from the Russian people during the
G H W Bush-CIA-Harvard economist arranged privatization of Russia in 1991.

N Murray Edwards and Harold Hamm are promoting the attempt to put a pipeline from Canada and
Northern US to New Orleans, a plan rejected by Canadian voters.

Kuwait was formed in the 20th Century when Anglo Iranian Oil, soon to be BP, with the help of their oil
engineers, carved the richest oil province from Iraq and installed a puppet on a newly created throne.
Agatha Christie objected to this in her books. G H W Bush was involved in slant drilling from Kuwait into
Iraq in order to provoke Saddam Hussein into invading Kuwait.

With all the talk of being energy independent, the US has allowed at least 3 billionaires to sell their holdings
to the Netherlands' Shell Oil or Hong Kong companies.

Dan Duncan has 4 billionaire children. He was arrested in Russia for airplane hunting of endangered species.

George Mitchell is unique among oil billionaires in stating the government should step up regulation of fracking.

Einhorn has invested his hedge fund in oil among other things.

Many of the Texas billionaires on the list spend money electing the Texecution governors.
