The Raping Of Our Country by
"CONGRESS & BIG OIL"

Today I am writing and posting this article because I am angry.
I am angry at the abuse directed at the citizens of a nation that I proudly served as a member of what was then called "THE UNITED STATES NAVY".
I was a member of what was then called "THE ELITE"
"THE NAVAL SECURITY GROUP"
and I received a Citation from the Commander and Chief for a little thing we did in 1962 then called the Cuban Missile Crisis.
So if what I am now about to say offends you, I have earned that right. If what I am about to say "ANGERS YOU and PISSES YOU OFF" - that is exactly what I intend for it to do. If it causes you to throw things and yell "I CAN'T BELIEVE THAT IS HAS GOTTEN TO BE THIS BAD", believe it then start working with me and get it stopped. Just investigate and JOIN ME.
The buck must stop now, and it will stop here with me and hopefully with you!
I do not care if you are a Democrat, a Republican, an Independent, a Liberal because party affiliations do not mean anything here - "HERE YOU MUST BE AN AMERICAN".
Everything that I will present is not only factual, it is easily verified and I would expect you to do it. BECAUSE, "I NEED YOU ANGRIER THAN YOU HAVE EVER BEEN". That is the only way you will have the courage and strength to join me in defeating congress.
*** REMEMBER "Your party affiliations don't matter, we must all be involved" ***
"TOGETHER WE WILL WIN"!!!
JUST A LITTLE HISTORY LESSON TO START
In 1970 we had a little thing called an "INTERNATIONAL OIL SHORTAGE". For those not familiar with the term, it pertained to the fact the Arab nations and their affiliates in other countries on separate continents grouply referred to as "O.P.E.C" (Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries, established in 1960)" supposedly decided to restrict oil flow into the United States. This led to gas rationing and a major increase in retail pricing to the "AMERICAN PUBLIC".
Before I continue for the purpose of this article let me clarify the terms "American Public, Citizens, U.S. all mean CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICAN RESIDING IN THE US".
You will notice in the first paragraph I said "supposedly", that is to let you ponder the information I am about to give and to allow you to decide if what happened then is happening now. But without all of the glamour of the secrets of 1970 through 1973. Anyway the supposed "OIL CRUNCH" led to the price of gas per gallon jumping from "TWENTY TWO CENTS for regular to FIFTY THREE CENTS OVER NIGHT". (Keep that figure in mind we will be getting back to it shortly) Gas at the pumps went to Alpha Bet rationing and limitations to only 10 gallon maximums. That progressed to every other day processing and that amounted to you could only get gas every four days. (Exactly like in WWII - except there was not a war and "the shortage was totally orchestrated").
Let's jump ahead to 1974 to another fabricated oil crisis. In 1974 I was personally given the opportunity to market (sell) 500,000 barrels of crude a day. The oil was "Sweet Bonnie Lite" which is the grade used for refining to gasoline for vehicles. The crude was Peruvian and I was guaranteed a 7 year production rate of 500,000 barrels pumped and loaded on to tankers "PER DAY". When it was disclosed to me that there were 6 tankers already loaded and ready to leave port for any U.S. designated port and refinery on the U.S. Mainland. I jumped on the contract offered. Not to mention I would have received 1/10 of a penny per barrell pumped everyday for the next 7 years. (Yes I would have become very rich.)
It did not happen because the government would not allow it. "THEY HAD OTHER ARRANGEMENTS AND OTHER PLANS", that would cause everyone in the US to suffer for the next hundred plus years. Oh, in case you did not know it. According to trusted sources there is in enough crude in the ground on US soil to last until the year 2150 without further exploration or off shore drilling. WE DO NOT NEED TO BUY FROM ANYONE, we have it all. "EXCEPT" the congress sold the oil fields to foreign corporations in 1970. In other words we (The CITIZENS OF THE US) do not own our own oil. We also no longer have the refineries to process it. "AMAZING ISN'T IT"? Thank your friendly congressman and senator for that!
I only brought this up so that while you are reading this you will understand the conspiracy between our congress, the oil and petroleum company lobbyists and BIG OIL. They have been continuing to rape and plan for the next century to bankrupt and drive the AMERICAN PUBLIC into poverty. They are doing very well so far. What is worse is we are not fighting it. "IT STOPS NOW". Allow me to clearly state so there is no confusion, it is my intent to bring to task those in government who are profiting by their efforts to destroy the American Public. IT IS TIME THEY GO TO PRISON!!!
(Continued on page two)
NOW LET'S JUMP TO MAY 16 2013
Today I stopped at my regular service station to put $10.00 worth of gas (2.56 gal.) in my car to run a few errands. I handed the attendant my debit card - I don't carry gas credit cards anymore. (Gas cards are a rip off unto themselves in joint conspiracy with between CITIBANK - B of A - and WELLS FARGO). As the attendant was starting to pump I glanced up at the sign and could not believe my eyes.
I called the attendant over and ask if there was a mistake on the board he simply said "NOPE," then he explained. The gas per gallon on regular had went up "FORTY FIVE . NINE CENTS" ($0.459) at 5:00PM last night (5/15/13). Medium grade went up ($0.479) "FORTY SEVEN. NINE CENTS" and Premium jumped ($0.499) "FORTY NINE .9 CENTS PER GALLON". This is total rape of our citizens by our government, the big oil lobbyists, and finally big oil itselt. YES I SAID OUR GOVERNMENT - SPECIFICALLY THE REPUBLICAN AND TEA PARTY REPUBLICANS as well as 4 DEMOCRAT SENATORS AND 27 DEMOCRAT CONGRESSMAN. You can look up the records, it will amaze you "IF YOU HAVE ANY BRAINS AND ARE NOT TOTALLY UNDER CONTROL OF YOUR PARTY BULL SHIT". If that last sentence insulted you that was my exact intent. Now please pay attention.
BTW - I am using mild profanity to maybe get your attention. I have been trying for years and it has not been done any good so far. PLEASE PAY ATTENTION AND WAKE UP!
Now here are some facts and this is the part where CONGRESS AGAIN COMES INTO PLAY as they are the biggest thieves and conspirators. The REPUBLICAN PARTY and THE TEA PARTY HAVE VOTED DOWN THE ENDING OF GOVERNMENT SUBSIDIES ALL FOUR TIMES IT WAS FINALLY ALLOWED TO COME TO A VOTE. EVERY ONE OF THEM VOTED AGAINST THE COUNTRY AND THE CITIZENS AND WENT ON TO JUSTIFY THEIR VOTE SAYING "BIG OIL NEEDS THE SUBSIDIES TO SURVIVE AND CREATE NEW JOBS". (This is verified in published congressional voting records)
FACE FACTS NOT BULL SHIT: $51,000,000,000.00 (that is FIFTY ONE BILLION = equals 9 zeros and 3 comma's after the 51. "PAY ATTENTION KIDDIES"! To help big oil survive and create new jobs? Now let's check this one on the BULL SHIT METER; Jobs provided by any of the big oil companies ZERO. TAXES PAID ZERO, because of the subsidies. You can check that for yourself and find the exact amounts were paid to who. (I want to save some space here).
NOW IF THIS ONE DOES NOT PISS YOU OFF, NOTHING EVER WILL!!!
First quarter "NET" Profit per oil company January 01 through April 30 2013. (Verified and proven factual as well as these, their own figures posted).
EXXON/MOBILE $11,000,000,000.00 -- CHEVRON/TEXACO $6,900,000,000.00 -- SHELL (aka ROYAL DUTCH SHELL) $7,950,000,000 -- CONOCO/PHILLIPS -- And finally the biggy, (Remember the fun guys who brought the big oil spill in the gulf of Mexico that ruined our costal waters and have still not paid the fines imposed on them by "CONGRESS" are you ready? $11,200,000,000.00 (YES THOSE ARE BILLION DOLLAR AMOUNTS, NOT MILLIONS)
Remember these are "NET PROFIT" figures after all expenses, and our government "CONGRESS HAS NOT ENFORCED THE FINES THEY IMPOSED. Congress has made no attempt to collect the fines. Then as an after thought "THE REPUBLICAN /TEA BAG PARTY grants them another $51,000,000,000.00 to survive. BTW - this survival money is being paid to companies that "ARE NO LONGER US COMPANIES OR US OWNED CORPORATIONS". They have (Including Dick Chaney/George Bush's HALLIBURTON INDUSTRIES) all relocated and registered "in Dubai".
The next biggest anger point -- they are drilling and pumping our oil, shipping it to their countries to REFINE AND SELL BACK TO US. Allow me to repeat this one "THEY ARE TAKING OUR OIL, THEN SELLING IT BACK TO US AT A MAJOR PROFIT". Check the profit figures two paragraphs up!!! Where does it end people? When are you going to get pissed off enough to stop it?
Well as far as I'm concerned it stops now. "IT ENDS HERE AND IT ENDS WITH ME". If you would like to donate and help me to "FIGHT FOR YOU" I will need all the financial help I can get. You can give it to me to help you, or you can just lay back and keep giving it to the Government, the lobbyists, and BIG OIL so they can keep screwing you and they do not even give you a kiss on the cheek. "I won't kiss you either, but I will not be doing any screwing"
Oh before I forget. The licensed lobbyists for "BIG OIL" have paid out $36,194,182.00 to members of the Congress and (not just the Republicans, ALL OF THEM) to vote against ending "BIG OIL SUBSIDIES" as well as VOTING AGAINST TAX INCREASES ON BIG OIL AND BIG OIL WINDFALL PROFITS". You tell me, who are they working for people? And how the hell do I get one of those jobs and not go to jail for ripping off the CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA?
You can contact me at my own phone number 1-541-754-6918 (don't call collect I won't accept the call). "YES THAT IS MY REAL PRIVATE AND PERSONAL PHONE NUMBER". I will tell you how to make your financial donations to help you. BTW, no they it's not tax deductible. If it were, the people we are going to nail would control it and confiscate it to help BIG OIL SURVIVE. REMEMBER, IT IS YOUR MONEY. BUT IT IS OUR COUNTRY AND ALL OF OUR COLLECTIVE ASSES.
Join with me.
