Big Oil Companies
By David Blasczyk
June 02, 2006
I don't know Governor Murkowski personally and I don't know the
men who are running the big oil companies. I do know this that
in sales it is a great thing to get the buyer to think that you
are friends. I sold cars for awhile and found that I could make
more in commissions if I could get the buyer to like me and trust
me. That situation makes for a better deal for you the seller.
It doesn't make a better deal for the buyer and increases the
probability that you will not get a good deal. I took this knowledge
with me and have used it as a buyer ever since. Never be friends
with the seller!!! We have to remember the goals of the seller.
Their goal is to make the most money possible. To get the best
deal possible. That is how things are. These oil companies are
not in Alaska to make sure we have a better standard of living
they are here to make a profit.
Governor Murkowski's friendly relationship with the oil companies
makes him a poor choice to be Alaska's spokesperson in regards
to business with the oil companies.
That is my opinion!
Ketchikan, AK - USA
About: "I moved my family
to Ketchikan from Denver in 2002. I love the beauty of nature
that Alaska still has and the kind hearted community minded people
who are living here. I beleive that the most important thing
in everyone' life is the earth and I feel that our planet is
under attack by greedy Corporations who don't value it."
