Having a monopoly is illegal in the US and Canada but when the right and big business get together they are not going to let a few little old laws get in the way of making money
GROUP THINK AT IT’S ULTIMATE – In the last few days the Great Canadian Echo Chamber has come back into operation. The subject is the ridiculous price of gasoline. The PMO has sent out the usual E-Mail to Pierre Peladeau, the Minister of Propaganda concerning gas. The Sun newspapers have broken that story and the rest of the media has followed suit. THE ALL SAY THE SAME THING. One of the explanations for the sky hi cost was that COMPETITON IS VERY TIGHT. I just about died laughing. The US oil cartel has controlled the fuel supply in North America since the 1920s when the Republicans granted the 7 big oil companies a monopoly.
We are seeing a repeat of this process with the Gateway pipe line. Each of the oil companies has kept its’ original name to fool the public into thinking there is competition. The Post reporter who wrote this story about hi gas prices and included the bit about competition knew he was writing down a lie. His editor knew it was a lie. Paul Godfrey knows it is a lie. So why are they all lying? Becuase the oil cartel pays them to lie. And the oilies know if you find out the extent to which they control the market with the help of the politicians and the media you will payday loans Arkansas be out in the streets. Lying these days is a very lucrative business for the dishonest.
Doing the honest jobs, as the underclass does doesn’t pay very well if there are jobs. They have the ability to fix hi gas prices at hand [ and I mean fix the system and lower the const of fuel by half ] but they the trained seals we elect would sooner take orders from the party machines than listen to the voters. It is interesting that you have the means to lower fuel costs. And yet all you do is stare off into space and say oh well. Here is how the oil monopoly actually works. A BP [ supposedly British but American owned ] tanker is taking oil from Norway to California on the Pacific.
Eventually the people who are responsible for the high coast of gas are the MPs and MPPs
A Shell [ supposedly Dutch but American owned ] tanker is bring oil from Saudi Arabia to New York on the Atlantic. Rather, the BP tanker fills the Shell order in New York and never leaves the Atlantic. The Shell tanker fills the BP order in California. Problem. You and I pay the transportation costs for the complete trips that never took place. The way this arrangement works, it is a state sanctioned monopolypetition my ass. I alway try to give you a fix, alway a way out. If Allison Redford is relected Premier in Alberta and Andrea Horwath is elected Premier of Ontario the sparks will start to fly. With Alberta’s oil / bitumen and Ontario’s huge unused hydro electricity added to the hydro KWs in Newfoundland, Quebec and Manitoba Canada can become an energy superpower.
This would lower energy prices, introduce the world’s first hydrogen society and produce wealth and real jobs for thousands, especially the young. Sending pure oil / natural gas east [ Twin Beaver Pipe Line ] from Alberta to a market of 23 million and having GREEN / clean / cheap hydro electricity go back the other way to the tar sands along with a firewall around Canada super power status will be within reach. Blood money might be the appropriate term.
