Re: $3.00 a gallon

Lee Raymond has a $400 million dollar pension package. Exxon
made a profit of $36 billion last year. I will make this promise
to anyone, if you can come up with a business plan for me to
make 36 billion dollars in a year I will give them a 600 million
dollar pension package and a $400 million dollar signing bonus,
I will throw in a 12 cylinder Jaguar, providing that they are
in fact, in possession of a guest worker permit.
According to my unique calculator that has a Theory Of Relativity
and a Mind Over Matter function. Relatively speaking, Lee's retirement
package is one 90th of one year's profit margin. A Mom and Pop
business would have a difficult time retiring on one 90th of
one year's profits. After deducting the Mind over Matter feature
on my modern abacus, Exxon does not mind that we do not matter.
My calculator tells me that this is capitalism. And Lee may be
under paid compared to the profits he helped create. Mathematicians
can check my accounting work, because I admit numbers confuse
the heck out of me, I may have stuck a zero in the wrong spot.
If the people want to lower the price of this nation's gas price
per gallon, the people would have to form a game plan of collusion.
Boycotting gas is out of the question for obvious reasons. But
boycotting one company for a month could start a good ole fashion
price war. Now, a radical use of power to the people collusion
to manipulate fuel prices would make us no different than the
theory that oil companies conspire.
Unfortunately, an effort by the consumer to price manipulate,
might create lay offs in the industry, creating a new unemployment
problem. My question would be, if Exxon reduced its profits by
10 times or to 3.6 billion, and they gave their CEO 40 million,
what effect would that have at the pump? 10 cents? Big numbers
are the problem if they are not in my wallet. I need to stop
now; some gentlemen from the Oil Cartel just took my computer.
