I don't presume to be in the position of authority to dictate what a reasonable profit for big oil should be. I defer that decision to the people
that have been elected to see to the public good. They have the resources at their disposal, and the background information, to reach a consensus
that will be acceptable to both the corporate and public interests, if the system is allowed to function properly.
The unrecognized lobby of public opinion may yet balance the bucks doled out by the big oil lobbies. That's not prejudice, that's political
reality. This country is in a time of crisis, believe it or not, recognize it as such or not, and we all need to pitch in and do our part to help
straighten things out.
