My Wonders..........

I wonder why it is that Exxon posted $45B profit this year and yet people could not fill their cars with gas because it had skyrocketed to $4 a gallon. I wonder why they finally gave us some relief. I wonder why no one is blaming the gas companies for helping to put us in this economic hard time. I wonder why people are dying in their freezing cold homes because they cannot afford to heat them, but no one regulates the gas companies? Why are people paying over $200 a month for NW Natural? I wonder why NW can blow money like they own the world and no one monitors them? I wonder does this "stimulus" package include something to help homeowners who are literally dying because they are cold? I wonder does it involve government regulations to control cost increases? I wonder does it put it's foot down on cable companies who are increasing prices left and right, when all's they need to do is flip a switch for some of this stuff?

I think I woke up on the wrong side of the bed and when I saw the headline about Exxon I just about blew a gasket! I need to watch some glenn beck today and get more riled up. lol. These are my wonders on a friday morning.

And gas prices are rising a little again, but no one seems to be commenting on it.

Here, here!! I totally agree. It's getting quite hard for us "regular" people and they have money coming out of their ears. There needs to be some checks and balances put on these companies, especially if they are getting bail-out money from the government. We are paying with our hard earned money for them to have these lavish lifestyles. I was just talking to Samuel last night about how frustrating it is that there is such a huge gap between us "regulars" who are struggling and the wealthy (whether they be business people or entertainment types). So not fair. Grrrrr...I'm on the same side of the bed as you!
